The pain of suffering and the elation of the very thought of healing.
In a state of discomfort, dis-ease or distress we encounter challenges and obstacles that can take us on a slow walk to hell and back. Only making it back if we have sturdy shoes (more aptly described as a sturdy soul) for the journey.
Healing is the relief of what seems an endless journey. Where we return to a time and space of wellness, of being able to experience joy and happiness. Lets face it pain is debilitating. Be it a tooth ache, head ache or back ache, be it the ache of a disease running rampant through our body or of the soul that longs to be on purpose, the scale of pain can never be measured.
But healing can be measured and it can be given the same experience of elation by all who experience it It simply is a gift.
Healing can take place in many ways. Through medication, through therapy or from traditional to orthodox treatment methods, but what is often missed in our urgency to be healed, is the lessons of the illness, and what the healing journey can offer that.
I get a great deal of frustration within me when I read the marketing hype of those claiming to heal someone, when in truth it is only us who can heal ourselves, and so I wanted to share, short, quick notes as to the main highlights we can open ourselves to in order to create some form of truth in the connection to healing.
Why the illness? I guess the place to begin is in first accepting that here, in this time, as physical beings, our bodies and minds are the recipients of most of the lessons that we encounter. Every encounter, every experience, every moment is a piece of the process of what we learn in our lifetime. What we also need to understand is that healing cannot, and will not take place until the lesson has been learnt, or mastered, or overcome.
What is a lesson? When energetically our vibration is not in alignment with our truth, our purpose or our path we encounter illness. The illness is our lesson to learn. This lesson we can unravel, through observing where the illness lies and what it is asking of us. It is an opportunity to grow and find self love, a journey to heart and soul. We all encounter lessons in life, in fact it is easy to say that LIFE is the lesson. That through lifetimes we travel and experience to discover our truth. A lesson will never leave our body or our journey unless we've learnt the lesson. It may at times subside, but unless we continue to act in our new way with our new mindset the lesson will return to dig in a little deeper to make us take note.
What is healing? In truth healing is the space of pure truth and life in which we discover our own self and move away from the negative traits and energies towards a new pathway. For some it is simply relief from an ailment, for others it is a deeper connection to spirit or energy or God or a greater entity that allows them a clear connection to becoming more aligned to their truth.
What it isnt, is a simple cure. Lets be clear, it isn't a cure at all without the person with the ailment doing the work. Ultimately only you can heal yourself. What a healer does is open doorways for that to happen. Further to that no one can simply heal you without a few crucial factors. First is your clear knowing of what you are moving away from and moving towards. Second is the belief in what you are moving away from and moving towards. Third is the commitment to the work of maintaining that new pathway. Without these in place, illness will return and as it is a lesson that perhaps we haven't paid attention to, they tend to hit harder each time to wake us up.
What you must do. Know the lesson. Take the time before you begin to understand the lesson and to accept what needs to be done. Then, believe in the ability for that to be healed. Be prepared to do the work and continue to do the work required for you to stay within your new space of truth and love.
What healers must do. I add this so that we can look for someone upholding this great gift in the highest manner. If you are aware, you will find that which is right for you. A Healer needs to open space - provide space - allow space - hold space for pure energy to be experienced so that light and sound can mend energy. I say, stay clear of anyone claiming to heal you. Embrace those who acknowledge that they have a role to play and are simply acting on behalf of truth for all things to be allowed. Healing itself is done through energy seeking itself - and seeking connection to itself. Therefore seek those who are within the truth so that this is what draws to your life.
My final thought may seem to be contradictory on some levels. But hopefully I articulate myself clearly enough that you can understand. You shouldn't be healed! You should never ask or seek to be healed without clear acceptance of the lesson. Because thats the point of life, to learn. To ask for healing without any knowledge of the lesson and for simply a greater reward of life, you will find tougher, more challenging lessons will appear to tackle that task of teaching. You wont be healed without this. What is offered to us is the physical or mental illness as simply a clue as to what the true underlying issue really is - where it is - how it impacts us etc. This tells us what the causation may be and what lesson needs to be learnt, what question answered, what energy healed. You wont be healed without you being prepared to take the journey of the lesson. Any healer seeking to 'heal' you for their own glory is only damaging you on a deeper level without you having this understanding and acceptance.
As time moves forward and healers becomes a more common thread of healing, it is important for us to each know the truth of what is offered and what is capable. Can great healing ok through healers? Yes, absolutely. But only with you in the full space of truly knowing what the illness or disease is asking of you.
