Article of the Week
What to Do When Nothing Works!

Healing Dawn in Melbourne

I believe Reiki can heal pretty much anything.

This may be controversial, but true or not, the belief empowers me. It gives me confidence. It gives me faith, and as a result, helps me attract the results I’m looking for.

In previous articles, I have talked about different ways to heal chronic issues (like using all five ‘pillars’ in the Reiki system, rather than just hands-on healing). In today’s article, I’m going to talk about ‘Plan Z’.  Plan Z is what one might call the master backup plan. It’s the plan – or to be more precise, mindset – to use when other things aren’t going well.

To put it simply, Plan Z is about never giving up. It’s about try-try-trying until you encounter success. It’s about not losing hope just because you encounter one, two or even many ‘negative’ results.

Of course, you most likely realize that so-called ‘negative’ results aren’t really negative. Rather, they are more what you might term ‘constructive feedback’.

You do something. It doesn’t work – you now know you need to try something else!

Seen in this light, ‘negative’ results are like a guiding system that gets you where you want to go.  They are like the game ‘hot and cold’. You take a step in one direction, and everyone shouts out ‘cold’. You take a step in another direction, and they shout out ‘colder’. You then take a step in another direction still, and this time they all shout out ‘hotter’. The game continues like this, going from cold to hot to cold to hot and so on until you find what you are looking for.

Of course, realizing on an intellectual level that ‘negative’ results may not really be so bad is one thing, not feeling the ‘kick in the guts’ another! Plan Z is a big help with this because it gives us another tool for reframing situations that don’t go our way – for seeing them in a larger context that is ultimately positive.

As mentioned, Plan Z is about changing your mindset when things get tough. It’s about never giving up. For this reason, we could also call it the Edison Principle. Thomas Edison — as you know — was famous for trying new things until he got the result he was looking for (for instance, the light bulb). He knew that if he persisted, he would ultimately meet with success.

This, I believe, is an important idea to grasp, because as bad as things not going your way may feel, life pretty much always rewards persistence. And when you get the reward, the payoff is usually well worth the disappointments you have had along the way.

The thing to realize – and this is the key to Plan Z – is that the aim of life isn’t to win more often than you lose. In fact, it’s quite acceptable to lose far more often than you win – something that is pretty common. So long as the wins are bigger than the combined losses, there isn’t a problem.

Let’s take some examples to make this clear.

How would you feel if you knew you had to go through several difficult relationships to find the ‘love of your life’ and live happily ever after?

Pretty happy, I’m guessing.

What about work?

How would you feel if you had to make your way through several less-than-perfect jobs if that meant that at the end of it all, you would find a job that not only fully satisfied you on every level, but also paid well?

Again, I’m sure you’d be willing to put up with the initial challenges to get the reward.

Once we understand that if we look at the bigger picture, it’s not a catastrophe to go through difficulties or get a lot of rejections, then these things won’t have the same impact on us as they otherwise would. When they occur, we just smile, knowing that it will often only take one thing to go our way for everything to be worthwhile.
This thought then encourages us until we meet with success.

If you shift this approach over to the healing realm, you might find that you have tried dozens of different ways to heal an illness, to get over an emotional condition, to lose weight – whatever – and none of them have worked.

Should you give up then? Tear out your hair?

Of course not.

Instead, simply employ Plan Z – the plan that is about putting things in a larger context and then, encouraged by that, try-try-trying until you meet with success.

Because when you do ultimately discover the technique or approach that fixes your issue, you’re going to feel a lot better about the journey. The trick is simply to stay in the game long enough to let that happen.
