healing and illness



Illness mainly starts in the emotional body. It is from here that certain blockages settle themselves in the physical body on the material level. Often beliefs from the mental body contribute to the development of emotional blockages and thus to the manifestation of illness.

If you resist or deny your emotions the soul will speak to you through your body. The body is an intelligent being, highly responsive to not just the material things (like food and liquids) you take in but to the emotions, feelings, and thoughts you have. The body is meant to be a communicator. It is not a mere vessel to dwell in.

Illness thus has the function of an indicator: it shows you where you are in need of healing. The real problem is not the disease itself but that which it represents, the underlying blockage(s).

For instance, the body’s inabilities indicate that you must let go of certain obligations, spend more quiet time by yourself, be less active, and more attentive to your needs.

Generally, your emotions tell you when your energy is not flowing, and when you turn your attention to their message and honor it, the blockage gets released.

The soul has many ways to communicate with you. The soul’s favorite way is to speak to you through your intuition: quiet feeling tones, hunches, soft whispers of the heart. If it cannot reach you in that way, you will be alerted by your emotions. The emotions speak a louder language. They clearly show you that you have to look within and find out what is igniting that emotional response. If you become silent 19 and listen carefully, the soul will tell you. First, you have to accept your illness.

The way to let your body talk is love. You will not encourage communication with your body if you try to remove the disease by ardently repeating healing affirmations or visualizations to yourself. That still is a form of struggle or resistance.

Accepting and understanding your illness is the only way to true healing. Illness wants to take you back home.

Quite often the behavior that the ailment forces upon you is a big clue. By limiting yourself in certain areas, it is putting a spotlight on things that were in the dark before. How is it with your ability to be patient and gentle with yourself? Can you really take good care of your physical and emotional needs? Illness always brings up these questions, and to confront and accept the emotions they arouse is part of the healing process.

You are dished up many idealized images in your society about what your body should look like, what fitness and health imply and what you should or should not eat and drink. There are all kinds of rules and standards about what a long and healthy life is like.

But the path of the soul is highly individual. Therefore to find the truth about any illness, ailment, or distress that you suffer in your body, you need to tune into yourself in a very intimate way, leaving behind all these general, often artificial standards and rules.

This is a great challenge to you, for the fear and panic that seize you in the case of illness make you look too quickly to authorities outside yourself. This may be a medical doctor or an expert in alternative treatment. The key is that out of fear, you tend to give up your own responsibility and partially hand it over to somebody else.

There is nothing wrong with listening to an expert’s advice and quite often this is a very sensible thing to do. But always you need to take this knowledge inside you and weigh it in your own heart.

This also applies to hereditary or congenital physical defects. In this respect, you sometimes speak of karma but I am careful with this concept, as you have a tendency to associate karma with crime and punishment. This is not how it works. The soul has the sincere desire to know itself to the fullest and to be free. Starting from this ardent wish the soul sometimes undertakes ailments, diseases and physical defects which help it reach its aim. It is certainly not a question of paying off your debts. It is a deep intent to be set free.

People with a chronic disease undertake quite an arduous task. On the soul level, they have agreed to confront the fears that come up in the context of their illness and to confront idealized pictures of how someone should perform in life. To take up this challenge shows great courage.

Sometimes it will be obvious that someone will not survive a disease anymore. The “earthly frame” does not persist. At that moment what does the soul that finds itself within the body do? As long as you keep resisting the disease, you cannot get in touch with your soul and the inner knowing that tells you that it is time to say goodbye.

If you go along with what death wants to tell you, you will pass through several stages before the actual process of dying takes place. These stages have to do with a gradual release of all earthly things – of your beloved, of your earthly surroundings, of your senses with which you observe everything around you. This is a beautiful, natural process.

It would be a pity to overshadow this process by an attitude of battle in which you try to hold on to life at any expense. Often by then the body has already become so fragile that life is not worth living anymore. Let it go. Death is a liberator who is there to serve you. Death is not your enemy. Death brings you new life.

When you are with someone who is incurably ill and when you feel that person knows that they are going to die, try to talk about it softly and carefully. It is a relief to the person who is passing over. The dearest and most precious thing you can do for a dying person is to sit next to them and hold their hand. There is nothing else you need to know or to be able to do in accompanying a dying person.

20 Do not consider a disease that leads to death as an enemy whom you will lose to in the end. It is not a battle.

Quite frequently death comes to release you from even more pain and misery. You are certainly not a loser. You will simply continue your path in another way    This is from the channeling of Jeshua Ben Joseph.http://jeshua.net/EssentialJeshua.pdf

Child Within

Each of us possess a form of an “inner child” living in our subconscious mind. That child is intelligent, playful, curious, spontaneous, and expressive. It’s also emotionally sensitive and vulnerable in early life. The child is always with us in our adult life. It was developed and is our "know" subject of life and is the curator of how we react in our adult life. They are know as messages one gets as a child and the child only knows what it receives.

These messages are expressed in words from parents and/or guardians, family friends, teachers, coaches, etc. They also are demonstrated through nonverbal cues of body language such as: smiles, hugs, and pats on the back.

Often, the child infers non-verbal negative messages from the absence or inadequacy of parental involvement. When others ignore the needs of the child, the inner child feels abandoned and neglected.

With "Positive messages "of encouragement nourish the inner child and help it form a healthy self-esteem and a positive self-image.
