Healing Dis-ease from a Distance Pt 1
[one_half]I’m journeying with two people who are struggling with life-threatening illness… what many of us in the holistic field prefer to call “dis-ease.”
Both are addressing the problems in their physical body. One is doing so totally through alternative means. The other uses a combination of alternative and allopathic (MDs).
I work with them on the mental, emotional and spiritual aspect of their healing to free the energy trapped by those events allowing the body to self-heal.
When working in the alternative or complementary healing area it’s important to understand the differing philosophies. Your traditional method of healing, what is technically called allopathic medicine, views the body as a complex conglomeration of parts that join together to make up the body. For them illness begins in the body. They also believe that if you fix the broken “part” then you fix the body.
Alternative healing from the mind-body perspective, at least as I practice it, looks at the physical body as a system consisting of the physical and energetic bodies. The energy bodies are composed of the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. When I work with people I see dis-ease beginning in the energy bodies, not the physical body.
The practitioner’s belief about where dis-ease begins is crucial. It determines how the practitioner approaches healing. If you believe illness begins in the body, then you focus only on the physical body. You do all you can to attempt to correct it by physical means.[/one_half]
[one_half_last]If you believe the dis-ease of the physical body begins in the energy body, you work to bring the energy body into balance. The problems experienced in the physical body are only symptoms of what is happening in the energy bodies.
Let’s take cancer as an example.
When you go to an MD for cancer treatment he or she will prescribe chemotherapy, radiation, surgery or a combination of all three. Unless you are going to a holistic physician, the MD pays little if any attention to the mental, emotional or spiritual causes of the dis-ease. In fact, many MDs don’t believe there are any causes other than abnormal cell growth. Most don’t even pay attention to nutrition.
When someone comes to me with cancer I first find out how they want to address this dis-ease. Whatever modality they choose, alternative, allopathic or a combination of both, doesn’t matter to me. I’ll support them in their choice.
Once we discuss their choice, I then educate them about the importance of resolving the mental, emotional and spiritual triggers for what is happening in their body. We then get to work.
I must tell you that the most difficult part of the road to wellness from the mind-body perspective is facing and resolving the beliefs and wounds from the past. The majority of people would rather experience physical pain than confront the emotional pain fermenting the dis-ease within the physical body.[/one_half_last]
