Giving Yourself Permission to Heal

This article is based on our podcast episode, Make Magic: Giving Yourself Permission to Heal. Listen to the full episode here.

In this article, we are diving into "permission energy", the sticky places that keep us from getting what we want, and how to sink deeper into healing these spaces.

What Is “Permission Energy”?

“Permission energy” is the freedom and spacious YES we offer ourselves without putting limitations or judgment on our process.

Children radiate this energy of possibility because they haven’t learned what isn’t possible yet. I often find that we don’t give ourselves permission to do or try things openly, and it can really limit us as adults. How are we supposed to learn if we think we must know everything already?

This past weekend, I was at the Body, Mind, and Spirit Expo in Denver, Colorado, and did forty-six psychic readings. One after another, I began to sense a theme occurring in the people sitting across from me. Sometimes I do readings for entire families or friends, and there will be overlapping patterns, but this was different. I sensed and heard an undercurrent of uncertainty buzzing in everyone's minds. Everyone was a little frozen, struggling to trust themselves and their ability to take a step forward. Although each person could identify their goals, they struggled to give themselves permission to try something new.

The ability to give yourself permission, or the freedom to try something with openness and curiosity, is a huge tool I've been taught to side-step the paralysis that occurs when we risk doing something without knowing the outcome. Healing big things requires giving yourself big permission, and I rarely hear this nugget of wisdom taught in schools or traditions trying to teach the greater aspects of spirituality.
