You were born to be a healer. We are all healers by birthright. There is no rulebook on healing. We are simply created to heal ourselves.
In order to appreciate that inherent quality, we have to see ourselves as part of nature. Nature is self-sustaining and self-healing, It is self-regenerating. That’s what we are.
To be a healer means to be all of our aspects, both physical and non-physical, to appreciate that we are body, mind, soul, and spirit, and to align those aspects. To align means to: 1) treat the body as a temple of the soul, 2) to say what we mean and mean what we say, 3) to listen to your body’s language, 3) to express, not suppress symptoms because symptoms show you what you already suppress, and 4) to feed and balance all your needs; physical, emotional, spiritual.
True medicine is to work in all our layers, as Body-Mind- Spirit medicine. We need to remind ourselves that we are an expression of a greater Source or Universal Life Force called Spirit that creates the body. To be powerful creators is to see beyond the mirror. Therefore, we cannot solely focus on physical traits, when the body is an end product.
The creative process means we are always adjusting to the elements in our environment, and those elements are not only physical but also metaphysical. They are not only people, places and things, but thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. As energy, we are always giving and receiving parts of our unseen selves to maintain balance and that manifests as our physical interactions and physical balance. So we need to go deeper than the surface. If we’re out of balance physically, then we are out of balance emotionally.
Many ancient cultures believe that thought forms give rise to material forms. For instance, Hindu philosophy states that matter comes from thought. This ancient belief originates long before Bruce Lipton, PhD, wrote his book The Biology of Belief. But Bruce Lipton is a renaissance man, here to rebirth this idea and remind us of our inheritance. We are all here to remember and partake in the knowledge that the Field (described as the aura or chakra system) brings about healing in the physical body. The Chinese call this energy Chi. Others call this Life Force, prana (breath of life) or kundalini.
Energy healers such as shamans can see or feel this vibrational energy as light and can move it. They free up the body’s healing energy to flow. When this happens, Spirit reconnects with Source and energy is released. There is a breakthrough. Based on their cultural traditions, shamans traditionally work with their hands or with objects like a rattle, or by sucking. They see where there is a lack or an excess of energy or illness and move the energy. But since most of us are not raised in shamanic practices we have the opportunity to choose and create the way we work with healing energy and the best way that works for each of us. How Shamanism works is to empower the person to heal herself/himself.
Healing Is Individual
True healing is self-empowerment. To realize that you are the creator of your health or disease is to be the healer. Healing is purely individual. You do not require a medical system or a white coat to fix you. Your power to heal comes not from a book or a doctor with a degree. Power comes from within and from your ability to make choices. The power to heal is the freedom to choose. So healing also equals liberty. You can choose to love or to hate, to accept responsibility or to blame. We are our choices. To say that others determine your choices is to say that you have no power and no freedom. If people feel disempowered it is because they have given their power away to others. They are not responsible for their choices. They are victims instead of victors.
How do you manifest? Focus on what you want and not on what you don’t want. Do it deliberately instead of by default, consciously vs. unconsciously. Creative juice stems from your beliefs which become thoughts and feelings. Mind into matter. This is the nuts and bolts of how individual reality is created. If you want the collective reality to shift, then we each need to do our part because when enough of us are focused on what we want, then a tipping point is reached.
Building A New Heart-Based Reality
To heal a vampiric culture, that takes without giving, we must stop playing the victim and be the innovator. Within each of us are the generative higher frequencies of caring, freedom, love, all heart-based frequencies. Healing the current disease-based reality is only possible by being kind and loving to ourselves. As within so without. We must accept ourselves unconditionally, flaws and all. As soon as we accept and love ourselves, the vampire-victim reality fades away.
All darkness, war, destruction, disease we see around us is a reflection of the way we feel about ourselves. Knowing that manifestation is emotion-based gives us the power to reverse dis-ease. We have to be able to direct our emotions in a way that serves us all whenever we choose.
In whatever challenge you face, step back and see the bigger picture. Give yourself permission to find the positive aspects and start deciding what you are FOR instead of against. You create with the tone of your vibration. Heal yourself and heal the planet. You are only as healthy and free as you believe yourself to be.
