Scher) and social media (with her name).
This. was. such. a. powerful. convo. Wow! This is one of my favorite topics because it highlights that we all have the power to heal from within. Amy laughs now about spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on healing her extensive illness from Lyme’s disease, only to realize that she had the key to unlock her own healing from within, the whole time. It reminds me of the quote from the Wizard of Oz by Glinda the Good Witch, “You’ve always had the power, my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.”
Things We Learned From This Episode

  • Suppressing emotions and thoughts can take a real toll on your physical body. This is the kind of stress that can wreak havoc on our immune system, glands, organs and nerves. Beliefs like “I’m not good enough”, “I need to make others happy” or “It’s not a safe world”, for example, can have real negative effects on your health and wellbeing.
  • The first step to heal yourself is to become aware of your truth, meaning look to see where you are not being authentically yourself or holding back, stuck or feeling not good enough.
  • Next in the process is see the root of these stuck emotions that have effected your health and to be open and willing to clear the root of the issue.
  • Third is using techniques Amy shares on the interview and in her books: EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) aka Tapping, the Sweep Technique (she provides you with a script to release old beliefs in the subconscious) and Thymus tapping (your thymus is behind your breast bone and is super important to your immunity).
  • Our bodies can repair and heal itself and the inner power we have to create our own healing is incredible! These techniques saved and changed Amy’s life.
  • Amy’s powerful wisdom at the end is to be willing to evolve as a human being, in other words, allow yourself to change, grow, shift and release what’s not serving you. It’s easy to get stuck thinking you need to be a certain way. Getting stuck can lead to living in an inauthentic way for you. Give yourself space to continuously rediscover yourself and be fluid enough to be ok with changing (minus the judgment).
