This blog is dedicated to the trillions of Beings who suffer ill-health.
The most fortunate are those who have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic good of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder and even ecstasy. ~ Abraham Maslow
DATES BEYOND TIME
November 25, 2017.
A mysterious illness descended upon me. And I started upon a journey I have yet to complete…
Today, without thought of dates and beyond all time, I sit and write. For the first time since my illness arrived.
June 25th, 2018.
To the day. Seven. Long. Difficult. TRANSFORMATIONAL. Months.
Sickness arises when we do not heed the signs of illness in our bodies – mental, emotional, physical, spiritual. ~ Jin Shin Jyutsu
It has become very apparent to me that our society perceives Illness as Sickness, although the two are very different.
Sickness arises when illness is not understood as an opportunity to heal.
While Illness is a sacred, fierce and tenacious teacher of immense healing power!
As I continue practicing the art of energy healing called Jin Shin Jyustu, my clients become more complex while I become more adept. But, I am adept only because I have walked through very difficult journeys of illness; the mental and emotional trauma of PTSD, the physical and emotional trauma of my recent illness, the spiritual trauma I carry epi-genetically from ancestors, etc.
A healer is one who has walked the path of healing and experientially gained the wisdom to re-member self, and then support others.
I understand why the healers in ancient, indigenous cultures were those who struggled with mental illness, physical illness, emotional illness, and even the most troubling spiritual illnesses.
ILLNESS IS HEALING
A woman recently sat in my office and told me the story of her latest romantic relationship – as she spoke I sat stunned for they were nearly word-for-word my own, from a relationship which left me with severe PTSD.
This woman sobbed due to the grief and pain of this relationship, but a greater burden on her heart was the surety that something was terribly wrong with her because she is seeking to become a healer, so how could she possibly find herself in such a position?!?
Listening to her speak I felt myself as two; myself in that past moment of great pain and confusion…and myself in this present moment of great understanding.
I assured her that her current experience is a sacred opportunity to walk the path of healing all of her bodies, after which, she will carry the experiential wisdom to support others.
Upon hearing these words there was sudden and deep relief within her. She was able to relax into the experience which Life offered her as sacred and healing – as opposed to objectifying it as a negative situation with her mind.
<<i wish i had met an energy healer that said this to me when i was in that space and had offered me such hope-filled insight>>
- Am I listening to the voice of Illness within my bodies?
