Frequently Asked Questions - Changes People Don't Want to Make

I maintain that Health Patterning is about helping people make the changes they want to make.  Yet, people ask me, “What about helping people make the changes they do not want to make?”  I remember one time talking with a psychologist who asked me the purpose of Health Patterning.  When I told her that Health Patterning is teaching people how to make the changes they want to make, she said to me, “My work is teaching people how to make the changes they do not want to make.”  Her point is well taken, however, my position is that if people truly don’t want to make changes, then Health Patterning is not the way to go, since my philosophy is that people have free will and choice and power-as-freedom, the basis of Health Patterning, is all about that.  On the other hand, Health Patterning is quite useful when people are making difficult choices prompted by difficult circumstances that they freely decide requires changes that are tough to commit to, but they, nevertheless, feel are necessary to their well-being or health.  And we grow more, quite often, when we struggle with undesirable life situations that confront us in our daily lives.
