ThetaHealing® is a healing technique developed by Vianna Stibal. It grew out of her work as a psychic reader and her desire to bring healing to illnesses, including her own cancer.

Vianna used this technique on many others, with various illnesses, and had wonderful healing results. She then discovered that she could teach it to others. She now travels around the globe, teaching practitioners and instructors in this method.

The essence of ThetaHealing is taking the mind up to a "Theta" state, where the brain is in a theta brainwave, a state of deep relaxation and healing, below the normal consciousness. By accessing this state, it is possible to have healing of long-held issues, mental, emotional and physical.


Belief Work and Digging

A substantial focus in ThetaHealing is "digging" for the beliefs that underly an illness. In Belief Work the practitioner seeks to find the fears and gifts of the illness

uses a process known as digging to find the beliefs that underly the illness. In particular the fears and gifts in the situation for.

bottom-most fear underneath a situation and the gifts or life lessons of that situation.

In Vianna's experience, it is easier to facilitate a physical healing. To have a healing take place and hold, one needs to release the emotional reasons that contribute to it.

The process of finding the bottom-most fear involves a series of questions to the client about what is under each fear. The process of finding the gifts, service or life lessons involves a series of question about what the client is learning, how the client is benefiting or what might happen if the situation were resolved.

Once the practitioner gets to the bottom-most fear, with the client's permission, the practitioner works back up the inquiry chain, asking for healing of each layer of the fear.

To change a belief, the practitioner goes up into Theta and makes the command that the belief be pulled and replaced by its opposite.

To shift the service, the practitioner works with you to detach the situation and the benefit. Often the practitioner will ask the client if he/she would like to know how to have those gifts/lessons without the presenting problem.

Four Levels of Beliefs

Beliefs are held on many levels. In ThetaHealing they are organized into four categories:

  • Core - what you have learned from your parents and society; the beliefs you have developed from your experiences in this lifetime.
  • Genetic - what you inherited from your ancestors or anything that has affected your genetic make-up
  • History - what has happened to you in other lifetimes or anything from the collective consciousness that you are holding
  • Soul - deepest level, the place of your expression of the divine

Beliefs need to be explored and cleared on each level for a deep healing to be accomplished.

Creating Feelings

Sometimes it is not sufficient for you to have a belief pulled and replaced with its opposite. At these times, you must have the receptors for the capacity for that feeling activated and the feeling installed.

Only "positive" feelings are installed. For example, a practitioner may ask if you would like to have "Creator's definition, understanding and perspective of love."

With respect to the "negative" feelings, the practitioner may ask if you would like to "know what it is like to live without depression."

And sometimes the practitioner will suggest teachings, such as "Would you like to know the difference between your thoughts and those of others?"

Seven Planes of Existence

In ThetaHealing the practitioner goes to the Seventh Plane of Existence to do the healing.

The Seventh Plane is the plane of the Creator of All That Is. It is the plane in which one is in the theta brainwave.

The planes of existence are a conceptual tool for understanding how the universe is organized.

The planes are:
  1. minerals
  2. plants
  3. animals and humans
  4. ancestors, "spirit world"
  5. angels, ascended masters
  6. laws
  7. pure energy of creation
ThetaHealers work with and use the energy of all the planes. They do it by first going to the Seventh Plane and making a command to have access to the energies of the desired plane.

Establishing Trust

ThetaHealing can challenge your perceptions of what is possible. Many times a healing is rejected because the client may feel "it's too easy,"

To begin to establish trust in Creator, in the process, in oneself to allow in help are all part of learning ThetaHealing.

Also, as you are more and more in the Theta state, you will find you can more quickly manifest the objects of your attention. If you are focusing on enhancing the goodness in your life, this may find this happening with ease and grace. If you are focusing on your problems, you may bring in even more attention and life energy focused on those problems.
