30.4.2015….. Many symptoms reach a point where they need medical intervention or pharmaceuticals in some form. Sometimes you may need some ‘outside help’ to get the healing process started. Sometimes the body has taken years to get to the state it is in. A realistic approach to healing is to address it from many levels, not just one.
Levels of healing….. 13.4.2015
Whether disease and pain are acute or chronic, they would appear to be a complex combination of one or several issues that need to be addressed on multiple levels: mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. The aim is to heal on all levels. We all seem to address this in different ways and in a different order. What we believe or think about, in relation to these four levels, will affect what we manifest in our lives.
In healing process we need to look at many things on the emotional level, e.g. let go of hatred, guilt, envy or any other negative emotion.
Then there will be stuff on the mental level because what we believe we think about, and what we think about with emotion we create e.g. thought patterns we learnt as a child e.g. children should be seen and not heard.
Then something else may need to be addressed on the spiritual level, e.g. we are empowered being, responsible for everything that happens in our lives, we are not victims of anyone or anything
And also something on the physical level, diet and exercise.
Many clients have told me that their symptoms are hereditary, and that they’ve been in their family for generations. I have to wonder if it is the disease that has been passed down the family line or if it is more likely thought patterns – the forerunner to any symptom – that have been passed on.
I believe that I took upon myself family beliefs about insignificance, standing out and being on show, which in turn created the skin problem explained within my family as hereditary.
In considering what is hereditary, one must also consider what is genetic. Genes are passed from one generation to the next, but research would suggest that although genes contain all the information an organism uses to function, the environment plays an important role in determining the phenotypes (the observable traits) that the organism displays. For example, a particular species of shell may have different observable traits, that is, colour and pattern. What is the cause, genetic variation or environmental influence?
Research also presents that genetic variations do not cause disease, but rather influence a person’s susceptibility to environmental factors. We do not inherit a disease state per se. Instead, we inherit a predisposition in certain areas which results in a higher risk for certain diseases (Office of Genetics and Disease Prevention http://www.cdc.gov/genetics/).
If a person inherits a predisposition to a certain disease, the question needing an answer is, “Why do some people develop the disease and others don’t?” I believe that non-physical environmental factors, such as passionate beliefs and family thought patterns can influence the gene just as surely as a physical environmental factor, thereby unconsciously sabotaging, changing, distorting or manipulating what they have chosen to work with.
