Often in my practice I see patients who have spent many years and probably many lifetimes trying to heal. They may have incarnated with a chronic mental or physical illness or they may have experienced an accident or injury which has become the focus of their life.
Many of us, and I have been one of these, can spend years focused on trying to ‘fix’ ourselves, ‘doctor shopping’, trying every natural medicine modality, every diet, every drug, every new product that comes on the market, every new concept – in an effort to heal.
One of the very big jumps I made in my own healing was that sometimes you just have to let it go!
I have had asthma, eczema and allergies all of my life. I probably had vaccine damage, I’ve had a huge amount of stress, abandonment issues as a child and perceived money issues as an adult. But as I’ve worked on myself and then taken the decision to step back and look from afar, I can see that all of these issues are connected; they are all part of the whole.
Over twenty years I tried so many therapies, diets, practitioners and I never really moved forward physically. The major healing on the mental, emotional, spiritual level I achieved myself, often with self-selected vibrational remedies. I did support my health with herbs and other supplements but to be honest I’ve always been bad at this unless I’m actually sick!
Then one day I just decided I was over it.
I considered the fact that just maybe I wasn’t ever going to get rid of these physical ailments. That either my body was too damaged or my will was too weak or perhaps I just had to accept that this was my life and my health for the time being and maybe for this lifetime.
That day was pivotal for me. Yes, I do have to take my medication but I’ve now accepted that’s the least of my worries. I do have to take a little extra care in the winter and my skin is not fantastic. But I’m no longer focussing every waking moment on how to ‘fix’ this problem. I have accepted it is part of who I am and perhaps at this stage in my life it’s not going to get any better.
That was such a liberating thought for me. I don’t describe myself to myself as asthmatic and I rarely think about ‘my asthma’. Perhaps I think about my health challenges like having brown hair or wearing glasses – they are just part of who I am. And now if I get a pulled muscle or a cough, instead of rushing around to see what I can do to fix it, I sit with it and work through why this has come up. What am I supposed to learn from an acute illness or the flare up a chronic condition. Why has it happened now?
I talk about distraction so often and of course illusion, and in my recent blog The Truth is out There I also started to talk about the ego. We certainly learn a lot from the health challenges that we incarnate with, but they can become a distraction from what we are really here for. Think how much time it takes to research the perfect diet, to manage these diets, to visit your practitioners and maybe to take your lotions and potions. What would it be like to just think “actually I’m already whole and healed” and to begin to consciously live that whole, healed life?
It might feel a little rocky to start with and maybe you’d feel a bit vulnerable but intention is everything in this world – and therein lies the theme of another blog!
Consider how it would feel to accept that this is me warts and all and yes my life may be a guided to some extent by my health, but I am not my health and my health is not me. This is an aspect of me, but it can also be a distraction – that word again!
The question here might be “am I identifying myself by my condition”?
Are you invested in a condition and its treatment or are you ready to let it go as much as you can and accept that you are already whole and healed. That doesn’t mean you are going to ignore your condition, stop the medications or totally throw away your diet. What I’ve noticed, however, is that since I’ve refused to let my health dominate my life, it has been a whole lot better.
As a healthcare practitioner this might be a really strange thing to tell you, but as a practitioner who works so much with the mental, emotional, spiritual (MES) aspects of health I am clear that this is the level our physical health arises from. If we are not focussing on our MES health but purely on our physical, or our physical is the main focus even if we are working on the MES to some degree, then we are unlikely to move forward. My firm belief is that dis-ease arises on the etheric and spiritual levels as a way for us to learn. It permeates into our emotional and/or mental vision and if we don’t take notice, it continues until it permeates into the physical where we usually can’t ignore it.
So yes I do believe we can be healed and whole and I believe we can do it any time we want. Being healed and whole is a state of mind and a state of spiritual grace and as with the blog on ‘The Truth is out there’ we are already there, our ego just doesn’t want us to know it yet.
Vibrational medicine is a tangible tool for transformation. By listening to your soul whispering through a consultation I intuit a remedy that will bring clarity and understanding in your current situation. Working on the levels of clarity, rather than an individual issue can move us closer to the truth.
