Understanding The Spiral Nature Of Healing
Updated: Jan 29, 2019
When we talk about ‘healing’ we’re not just talking about relieving the physical aspects of illnesses. The symptoms of any dis-ease in the body are the final stages of a deeper process that has taken place on the unseen realms of our existence over a long period of time. For anything to manifest, incarnate or be brought into the physical there is a process of involution which starts out as non-physical, as an energy, group of frequencies, as a thought or as a level of consciousness. In the context of healing, over time these forces move towards form as they sink deeper and deeper through our energy bodies into denser and denser manifestation and they arrive in our physical body as sickness. The origin of these forces can be karmic, can be generated by our subconscious programmes, by our conditionings from this life and from traumas from childhood or past lives.
Disease itself is a form of active energy misaligned with the rest of the harmonic energies and forces that keep us functioning healthily. The energies of disease are working against the plan of the whole but we don’t need to demonise them or view them as just something to get rid of, dis-ease can teach us so much.
“There is the mud, and there is the lotus that grows out of the mud. We need the mud in order to make the lotus.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh
Understanding the forces behind our illnesses allows us to heal on both an emotional and spiritual level as well as the physical. The preventative and holistic approach is normal healing practice outside of the Western world and when we address the root cause of an illness, an unhelpful thought pattern or even a small frustration, we start to cure ourselves properly. We can start to clear away the karmic baggage we incarnated with, our energy bodies become lighter and we start to become more open minded, emotionally balanced and overall more healthy.
Most people however, don’t understand how deep they need to go with their healing, how much their blockages are holding them back or how detrimental their negative emotions are. This type of healing has been the preserve of spiritual traditions and cultures all over the world, but it is here in the West where it is needed most. Yet quite often we have to hit rock bottom and life to become unbearable for us to be moved into action and to start looking for a ‘path’ out of the darkness.
Be careful though because the word ‘path’ in the context of a healing path or a spiritual path can be misleading as there is nowhere to go outside of ourselves, it simply indicates an inner change
