Some thoughts on healing
It was said under the topic of the “Healing Perspective” that we perceive there is something broke that needs fixed. Under the topic of the “Creativity Perspective on Healing and Related Issues” we said that nothing needed to be fixed. Rather an unhealthy state is no different than an healthy state. We created both healthy and unhealthy conditions using the same methodology. It is much like baking a chocolate cake or a yellow cake. Every thing is essentially done the same. It is just that some of the ingredients are different.
If there is anything that can be
perceived as broke or need fixing, it is our ability to play. The
most creative state of being is a playful state. Any healing
ultimately has it root in our ability to return to a state of
spontaneous and innocent childlike play of discovery and exploration
of oneself and one’s world. In that state, we can create whatever we
desire. It particular is about returning to a state of play to
either the condition we face to playfully change the cause and/or
the conditions we desire to face to playfully create the cause.
Within the understanding of the Energy Consciousness Model of the universe, healing and wholeness comes from within our own being. It does not arise from anything external to us although it may appear as thought there is an external cause or perpetrator for our condition, whether it be the cause of the illness or the cause of the healing. We heal and become whole when we choose to change and /or correct any misalignments of energy dissipation that is occurring within our being. If we have an illness, we can correct the physical conditions and be cured but not necessarily heal the condition that caused the problem to originate in the first place. Our dis-ease arises form misalignment within our being in the way we are misdirecting and/or scattering the energy that is creating and sustaining our being for our free will ultimately controls this energy and all that manifests. To heal fully and embrace the wholeness that you already are, one needs to get control over all their powers and sever any attachments that may be robbing them of their power. However, it just needs to be realized that sometimes the body is so damaged it is beyond effective or total repair and one will be unable to restore it to that desired pristine state.
The lack and betrayal of love can
be a significant issue in the conditions we face. Here we talk about
a particular kind and expression of love. Here we talk about love in
the form of allowing another to become who and what they are without
imposing anything from the outside. In particular it is not
betraying this from of love when one becomes intimate in the express
of their truth. The lack of love is reflected in our inability to
create the space for the free expression of an individual’s
truth. Betrayal of love is when either er use the free expression of
an individual’s truth against them or we seek to consciously or
unconsciously get them to serve our needs in one way or another.
Betrayal of intimacy early in life lies at the root of many of the
things that make us fragment and scatter our energy. That in turn
does not allow us to create what we desire and often makes us unable
to finance health.
In this view, no remission of illness is truly spontaneous. Rather what we experience as spontaneous healing is found in becoming that “right” person. In these types of healings we are not consciously aware of the underlying mechanisms we create by change in who we think and believe to allow the healing to be experienced. In all our healing, strong healing forces are “secretly” at work healing the damage we create. As you practice loving your self and employ the principles in the energy consciousness approach to embrace the creator that you are, you will come to see for yourself that physical illness will often follow when one is not able to decline unwanted commitments and/or other demands made on our energy. That is, the individual does not see a more “acceptable” way of saying no. The issue however, is not what you do that causes the illness or accident but the denial of your own truth. Then in accident or illness, you have no choice but to decline your commitments because your body says no for you and you are forced to withdrawal from the decision you made. It is much healthier to learn to assert yourself and not give away your creative power. You need to ask yourself and be brutally frank in your answers to the best of your ability, “What do I gain from being ill?” and “What am I forced to address when I am ill?” The answers you get tell you how you have been denying yourself and your truth. Or, you may find there are much deeper reasons for the illness and they lie in what you, as an unique, infinite, individual creative spirit, choose to create.
Within the realization all healing comes from within, there are two types of healers. One group are the healers who think they and their methods are healing the patient. The second group are those who only realize they create a space to allow the individual to access their own internal healing powers. That is, the healer gets the individual to subconsciously access their unlimited creativity to create the reality of their choice. In both cases the healer and any actions the healer does only reflect to the individual the part of the individual’s subconscious that needs to be awaken. It reflects that part that needs to be awaken for them to become aware of what is denying them their wholeness and robbing them of the ability to become consciously self determined at every level of being. The individual, in their free will, can then choose, or not choose, to take their power back. There are some who don’t want to heal for then they will have to take responsibility for conditions in their life that they have created.
The key to healing is to realize
that there is a natural process that allows us to heal and we need
to allow that process to work. Natural as used here is not referring
to “natural” healing modalities as opposed to modern medicine. It is
also not faith healing or like any of those modalities. The term
natural as used here means there is a natural healing process in the
body that is in full alignment with the wisdom that grew the
fertilized egg into an infant and subsequently into an adult. It is
capable of healing every injury the body has for it is what put the
body together in the first place. It is about bringing the mind into
alignment with one’s
creative life energy to heal the separation between mind and
heart that caused the illness. To access this “natural” process
one needs to access and align with the
body wisdom and
intuitive guidance and follow its lead. To do so creates a calm
state within one’s being. Then in that calmness, ask one’s body
wisdom what is recommended. One should not be surprised if says
something as simple as “Go to a doctor and get an antibiotic and
stop listening to your nagging
What need to be realized is that
any time we suffer a wound within our being caused by life, the pain
and hurt we feel allows us to bleed away our
creative life energy much the same way any cut will bleed.
However, those wounds that bleed or drain our creative life energy
must heal naturally within the natural process according to one’s
own nature and in alignment with what caused the wound in the first
place. Since we are all unique individuals, how and in what manner
each of us become wounded will be somewhat unique and the healing we
need to undergo will also be somewhat unique.
If we do what our mind thinks
needs to be done rather than following our
intuitive guidance and the
body wisdom to heal the wound we will cause an effect what can
best be described by putting a gauze or bandage on the wound that is
bleeding. However the gauze or bandage is placed such that the gauze
or bandage actually bonds to the scab to become embedded in the scab
that heals the wound. Consequently, every time we try and remove the
gauze or bandage we remove the scab causing the wound to reopen.
These are typic of the very deep pain and injury we suffer that
continually festers within our being that never heal. They keep
popping up in different way but all go back to a single unhealed
injury. As one looks at these wounds they will find many of them go
back to one’s childhood. They go back to when we suffered the
displeasures of our care givers, teachers and society for trying to
follow our heart and our passion. Or, they go back to a time where
we did not know, or lost the knowledge of, how to follow the
guidance provided by our body wisdom for healing. To stop the
bleeding of our creative life energy, that source of our being, and
in an attempt to heal these wounds, especially as a child, we did
what we could. Analogously to the way we put a band aide or gauze on
a wound, we put some type of band aide, “fix” or adapted some type
of protective stance over these wounds rather than allowing them to
heal naturally. These band aides, fixes, or protective stances
usually are some habit and way of being or responding in the
external world or to the external world.
A guide can be used to heal the pain and separation of the past. But a guide can only take you there if they themselves have gone there and/or they understand the creative process as it relates to reconstituting the flow of our creative life energy. The process to heal these old wounds is an experiential journey and not something that you can learn in a classroom and/or mimicking another and what they have done. A person can only take you as deep as they themselves have gone. One cannot give what one does not have. A guide in this regard will only teach you how to go within and access your internal compass and then you will have to follow what you compass directs you to do. The guide does not lead you on the journey, for your journey into your healing is uniquely yours and no one can take it for you. They lead you to your own heart and your heart will tell you what you have to do to heal. The guide may subsequently accompany you on that journey allowing you to be who you have to become, but they cannot take the journey for you or tell you what to do. Only you can do that. But you have already within your own being all that you need to accomplish the task.
On using a guide it needs to be noted. Some guides are not healers. Some healers are guides. Some healers are guides but don’t know they are guides. Some who guided do not know they guide. That key to any guide is whether or not they lead you into your own heart. Then they are able to keep you focused on your own heart and wisdom while giving you the space to process what you need to process as your past surfaces to be processed. Some will say a guide has compassion. Yet some guides are very detached and seem cold and removed. Your own internal wisdom will tell you if the individual you are using is that guide that you need. You only need to look carefully to see if you are growing and expanding in your own power and power is returning to you regardless of the pain you feel and the past that you find necessary to process.
