Guest Blog ~ Lauren Worsh: What is Healing, Really?


“It’s not about self-improvement… it’s about self-love.”

What is healing, really?

This question has fascinated me for a long time. Until recently, I didn’t recognize myself as a healer. I felt I was a teacher, a yogi, a writer, and a thinker. What I most like to think about, write about, and teach are those practices and perspectives that help people make sense of what never fit together before, help us connect more deeply to ourselves, and help us to find resolution of the physical, emotional, psychological, and relational patterns that keep us stuck in suffering and struggle. In other words, I’ve always been fascinated with what heals us.

This passion has been fueled by my desire for my own healing, both physical and psychological. I’ve always had the sense that we were meant to thrive, but I knew I wasn’t thriving, and, looking around, it didn’t seem like many others were either. I’ve always wanted to understand why we get so stuck, and why our best efforts to move beyond self-sabotaging habits and patterns of insecurity rarely succeed.

In the course of my personal quest for healing, I turned into a self-improvement junkie. I became more and more eager to “fix” myself… which didn’t work very well. I succeeded at changing some of my unsupportive habits through willpower, but the changes either didn’t last or didn’t “fix” the way I felt, emotionally and physically. Eventually I realized I was creating internal opposition, pitting one part of myself against another in my attempt to create harmony, and that I was approaching my self-improvement project from the deep wound of feeling like there was something inherently wrong with me.

I had already spent some years improving my self-talk – learning that the idea that I was somehow deficient was misguided and mistaken, and replacing that story of myself with a healthier one. It took practice, but I really did learn to trust the new story – that I was actually okay, as is. It helped, but the feelings of inadequacy and insecurity were still there; they just came to the surface less frequently. When they did, they felt just like they always did — devastating. I could think wiser, more respectful thoughts but they didn’t seem to penetrate to the deepest layers of my felt sense of self. I still felt deficient, when it came down to it. Like I couldn’t relax fully in my own skin. I had to try, to do something, to be someone. It didn’t feel safe to just be.

This recognition has been healing in itself. In realizing that there is this very tender, core experience of not feeling safe to just be, I found compassion for myself, and have been able to make space for those feelings to arise and to flow freely when they do. I have invited them to arise, learning to trust the intelligence of the healing process’s impeccable timing. When they do, it is often a very physical experience as well as an emotional one. I sense that in presencing these aspects of my experience I am learning how to relax, in a way I never knew was possible. Sometimes there is simply an innocent sobbing and shaking. Sometimes I receive insights that help me to make peace with my historical struggles, help me to grow in wisdom and glimpse the big picture. Sometimes I have felt streams of energy pouring into my body; I sense these energies as vibrations or frequencies of Self that I had become cut off from – in this lifetime and perhaps in many lifetimes – and to which I am now choosing to reclaim access. I’ve realized that I have called in my own healing, and in doing so, I have become a healer.

I’ve come to see how healing is a process of unwinding back through the layers of our conditioning, and that in order to bring resolution to our earliest experiences of wounding and all the subsequent layers of trauma, suffering, mistaken identity, and misunderstanding, we need to be willing and able to receive healing into all layers of being – spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and energetic. It’s about recognizing that there is nothing wrong with us, and there never was anything wrong with us, and opening ourselves to the process of coming into alignment with that truth, on all levels.

For me, this is what healing is at the core – Self-love. It is about bringing love in wherever it is needed, wherever the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and patterns of unworthiness and inadequacy hold court.

Healing ourselves isn’t about self-improvement. The Self doesn’t need improvement. Healing is about recognizing that right down to our cells, and relaxing into the perfection of our unique expression of Being. It’s about becoming the source and the recipient of a ceaseless flow of unconditional self-love. It’s about becoming so sourced in the nourishment of that love that all habits of blaming yourself, judging yourself, and comparing yourself to others lose their power and eventually drop away. Healing, really, is about coming home to ourselves, for not only are we entirely deserving of love, this love is who we are.

Healing Our Core Wounding


A core wounding is the cause of distortion and dis-ease creating physical, emotional and mental symptoms in us. It is a deep energetic wounding within our etheric body that disconnects us from our Higher Self and our Lightbody. By working with Chiron through Transference Healing®, you can begin to heal this core wounding in the etheric and receive the frequencies that are necessary for you body to heal, anchor and activate your Lightbody so you can ground yourself in the 5th dimensional world that we are co-creating now.

The core wounding is reflected in the Greek mythological story of Chiron who was the offspring of Saturn. Being born a centaur, he was rejected by his parents and raised by Apollo. Chiron, being half man and half horse, represented the human being who’s divinity exists in a state of immortality and who, at the same time, resides in a physical mortal body throughout each of its incarnations.

The Mythical History of Chiron

Chiron the centaur created a wounding after being pierced in the leg. While living in a state of immortality he searched many dimensions to find a cure and along the way he became very wise and knowledgeable, mastering the art of healing. Meanwhile, the deep compassion that he developed, compelled him to help others on their own self healing journey. He does this by bringing up issues concerning the body’s health, diseases and their relationship or effect on our spiritual journey, growth and empowerment process throughout life. Chiron enables us to identify with the wound, giving us the resources to not only work with it on the etheric level and thereby heal it, but also to acknowledge or understand it so that we can work through its associated emotions that create limitations within our personal and spiritual growth. Through this self-healing process Chiron also enables us to shift our consciousness and see the gifts contained within the wound by allowing it to surface. When the wound is physically and psychologically healed, the gift is embraced, enabling one to awaken and evolve in body and consciousness and to open the mind to mysticism and magic. As we awaken these latent gifts, we learn to heal ourselves and others. Finally embodying our purpose.

The Astrological Aspects of Chiron

There is an ancient North American prophecy that says:
“When the healing planet is discovered in the sky then the sacred warrior teachings will return to Earth.” It is believed that this healing planet is Chiron.

In 1977 the consciousness of Chiron was energetically returned to the Earth when a new minor planet, classified as a centaur, was discovered in our solar system traveling a course between Saturn and Uranus. This discovery triggered our consciousness to embrace the idea of personal and planetary healing through energy and light. As Chiron transits between Saturn and Uranus it creates profound shifts in our physical and spiritual identity, as well as our perception on health and healing.

Chiron consciousness is a universal consciousness that comes through the planet chiron to help us enhance our intuitive ability and repair the etheric web that sustains our life force on Earth. By working with this etheric web that is energetically connected to the physical body, planet earth and the universe, we connect to Christ Consciousness and understand the vibrational healing aspects of all nature within our universe. Therefore, Chiron and it astrological influence enables us to access and master some of the sacred teachings and cosmic healing powers of the Christ.

We are all born with one of twelve core or Chiron wounds. The wounding you work on during your lifetime is based on what astrological sign that Chiron, the planet, was in at the time of your birth. The sign we identify in Transference Healing® is not necessarily, but could be the same as your zodiac sign. Chiron in a natal astrological chart indicates the area from which an opportunity comes to heal the core wound that we are born with. Chiron is not only triggering global astrological and energetic changes as it trasits in the solar system, thereby supporting global change within the Earth and human consciousness, but it is also simultaneously triggering four important astrological transits in each individual’s natal chart throughout their lifetime.

As Chiron makes its 50 year cycle of every human’s natal chart, the four unique transits it creates for each individual on the planet affects their personal and spiritual growth process. As such, the four Chiron transits occurring in their lifetime indicate times of significant initiations, as well as the core issues that may occur at these times in order for each individual to trigger a profound healing and an opportunity to create huge realizations and awaken latent gifts and talents.

The first Chiron transit occurs anytime between ages 4 and 23 years of age and gives us the chance to identify with our sense of self on Earth. The second transit opens one up to their life’s path. The third transit often creates painful times of self-discovery. The fourth transit occurs for everyone at the age of 50. During this transit Chiron returns to the exact sign and position it was located at the time of one’s birth. This transit creates the change of life, thereby delegating the direction and resources to find more of our life’s purpose.
