I decided that since I was interested in learning how to do Theta Healings, it would be a good idea to experience one. I called Brent Phillips and made an appointment. He can do distance healing, but I chose to see him in person because I wasn’t sure about how to do the muscle testing step at home.
On June 30 about 12:30 p.m., I showed up for my appointment. Since I had already read both of Vianna‘s books (Go Up And Seek God and Go Up and Work With God; now combined in Theta Healing: Introducing an Extraordinary Energy Healing Modality), I didn’t need much of an introduction to what we would be doing. Brent led me to a table where we would be doing the healings. He went and got a cup of water for me. Apparently, the muscle testing works best when one is well hydrated.
Before we could continue, we had to figure out which muscle testing method we would use to test yes/no questions. Brent did not want to use the method in which the arm is held out to the side and pushed down because he said it would be too tiring over the course of an hour. We checked out the standing method. In this method, the subject stands up straight. When a yes/no question is asked the subject will automatically lean forward for yes or lean backward for no. It didn’t seem this would work out for me because I tend to lean back a little in my standing pose anyway. It wasn’t comfortable for me to stand in the position that Brent said was straight. I asked Brent about using a pendulum. He said that this could work and that he had pendulums for just this purpose. He got out a wooden pendulum on a string for me to use. We tested yes and no, and it appeared that it was going to work out well for me.
At this point, I should briefly mention how Theta Healing works. When doing a healing in person, the healer and the patient will sit facing each other. Often the healer will ask the patient to put his hands into the healer’s hands. This is how Vianna teaches it, anyway. Brent prefers to sit off center and hold only one hand. The healer moves his consciousness above himself 3, 6, or 67 feet. He then invokes God and commands a healing. This moves the healer into theta brain waves. This is the brain state in which healing works best. The patient need only sit there. In the next step, the healer moves his consciousness into the patient and works with the part of the body that needs healing. When the healing is done, the healer removes his consciousness from the patient and imagines washing himself off. Then he returns to his own body.
So Brent and I were sitting at the table. He next did a quick scan of me using the method I just outlined. He then asked me what I wanted to work on. Since my spouse had recently complained that I snored, I chose to work on insomnia and snoring.
The first steps of the healing seemed almost psychological. Brent asked me what it was that insomnia did for me. We eventually discovered that I had been robbed and murdered in my sleep in past lives. The pendulum confirmed this. Apparently I didn’t want to sleep because I didn’t want this to happen again! Brent asked for my permission to clear this thought. He then did the Theta Healing process to clear the thought. When the thought was tested again with the pendulum, it was cleared. The snoring was likewise part of this same dynamic.
Brent asked me if I had something else I wanted to work on. I decided on weight issues since that is something I am working on in one of my groups. We cleared a couple issues with respect to that. Apparently I had the thought embedded in me that greater weight meant greater power. There was also an issue of not wanting the extra attention from men that being slim tends to bring on. Both of these issues were cleared, and no other issues were detected.
We had just a little time left in the session. I mentioned allergies. Brent seemed to want to work on food allergies. Actually, I was more concerned about airborne allergies since I’d had a pretty rough time of it in Copenhagen while on vacation and still had a touch of a cough from it the day of the appointment. But I did have known food allergy problems, so we went ahead and worked on this.
At the end of the session, Brent had me put a hand in his and did a final scan, working on the physical issues related to what we had worked on. I actually felt something happening during this process. I felt sensations move down from my head and into my bowels. The sensations continued in the bowels for a few moments and then moved up to my throat and head. And then it was done. Brent asked me if I had felt anything. I told him I had and described as best I could what I felt. He said that was the order he had worked on me, so that pretty well confirmed to me that what I had felt was real.
Since the session, I have not snored. If I have had difficulty sleeping, there was a cause such as a pain or some other thing that had to be dealt with. I was not just laying awake all night as I’d often done before. Since the healing, my eating has been more controlled. It’s difficult to say whether I’ve had any help with the food allergies since I don’t really notice those types of difficulties much these days anyway. All in all, I would say that the session has been a success.
