Healing: my understanding of it.
What is healing really? I have found a lot of confusion with regards to this and would like to offer my humble view on it.
For me, healing occurs when I return to alignment with myself, my High Self or the self which is One with All. Re-connection to me, is what healing treatments brings about.
We can do this for ourselves and its effectiveness depends on how deeply we are ingrained in our fear and survival state at that time.
In Alchemical terms, it brings people from the state of Negredo to the state of Albedo. Generally speaking, Negredo describes the ego state, the fear-based restricted survival viewpoint.
Albedo is the High Self, or the state of the Genius, Magician/Alchemist or Super-consciousness.
Healing can occur through meditation, focus, dance, music, moments of repose, being in nature, being with people of a vibration of unconditional love and acceptance or when we are joyful.
This can occur spontaneously, when the fear based ego has loosened its grip on our psyche and in that instance, reconnection is made to the fountain of knowledge and wisdom within us, which has also been described as the small voice within.
And we find ourselves in a state of Albedo. What we do with it is another thing and another article!
When I receive “healing” or a healing treatment, it does not mean that I was broken prior to receiving the healing, or I had done something wrong to require help in this way.
It also does not mean that once I am connected within myself, that I am healed. It means that I am in that moment, creating from my soul instead of from my fear.
I do believe that none of us are imperfect in any way and the word or act of healing does not mean that we need fixing or correcting.
A disconnection with self does bring many symptoms in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states and bodies: perhaps this is where the notion of imperfection is identified, especially nowadays where there are so many “prescriptions” for living well with nutrition, exercise and life-style and many medical cures and procedures for illnesses.
But I feel that this then exposes us to criticism, which creates guilt and a whole plethora of other self-hating emotions which do not help to maintain a strong connection to our beautiful and true selves.
A balanced and good diet, exercise and fresh air are important but these are no guarantee at all, for a completely healthy, illness -free life.
I hope this short piece helps to clarify my interpretation of what healing can do and what it is.
