3 Tips to Find the Help You Truly Need

For centuries humans have been developing various different methods to improve our mental and physical health.  From traditional western medicine to herbal supplements; from aromatherapy to acupuncture; from traditional counseling/psychotherapy to prayer and meditation.

When a struggle in a moment arises, we immediately question: What is the answer?  What do I need to do to fix this?

The truth is that despite all scientific studies or experiments done through any therapist, there is always room for error.  What works for one person is not always going to work for another.  We all have very unique bodies and struggles to face in this life, just as we are all very unique at our own soul level and with our individual talents.  Our diversity and uniqueness is what creates the beauty of this world.

So what do you need to do to find out what will truly work for you?

1.  Stop considering any method as an absolute “right” method.  The motive for this need to have something that is “right” or “true” is a sign of the ego emerging.  The truth is that, ultimately, there is no one right and true way that will work for everybody despite all scientific studies.  What may work for one individual person may provide a negative response for someone else.  Are there some methods that may work for a large population of people?  Sure, but that still doesn’t mean that this method is true in anyway.

2.  Look to your search with an eye of personal experimentation and discovery.  You may try one method and it will work only in spurts, or you may find one that only cures “part” of your problem.  Keep an open and free mind in your search and look to this as a way of personal experimentation and discovery.  You may try a tarot reading, but realize that this method doesn’t quite fully work for you… so then find something else that you feel does work.

3.  Trust your heart and inner guide 100%.  The only true way to know and to have a good “feel” that this particular method, path, or direction is true for you is by checking with your inner guide.  Do you feel that this doctor can truly recognize your problem?  Do you feel a good connection to this psychic?  There is no one person on this planet that is meant to help everyone, as that is why there are so many people here with various different talents.  Experiment and continue your search.  Look within to see what methods “gel” with you.  See what person you feel will really listen, consider, and understand your feedback and is willing to change and work with your suggestions.  And even if you try something and it doesn’t work out, release any potential frustration and say to yourself “It was a worthwhile experience that is now sending me closer to the path that does truly work for me”.

So, to answer the initial question: What Will Truly Help You?  The answer: YOU!  You have all the power and knowledge already within you to truly create full happiness for yourself… and THAT is the universal goal for all of us.
