The Healing Crisis
healing crisis" is a totally normal process of the physical immune system that
is designed to help your body burn off or process out the garbage (the phrase
blowing off steam also comes to mind). Your immune system can also be likened
to your own personal inner army that fights off invaders to your space. When your inner
army or immune system is activated, there occurs an actual battle of sorts within your
being, a little "Armageddon" so to speak, with explosions and bombs and fires
and wasted micro bodies all around. Most people are generally not aware of this inner
battle, except when their physical bodies are dramatically affected during a major
conflict (then the person feels fatigued, has a fever, and so on). The typical response is
to label and judge these symptoms as an inconvenience (or worse) when actually, these are
signs that the army is doing its job. Western medicine then instructs its
devotees to simply "pop a pill", which usually shuts down the armies responses,
which suppresses the symptoms (out of sight out of mind). The garbage remains, off on the
sidelines, digging into position, building up its strength for another day. Nothing is
cured, just postponed.
also have something of an emotional, energetic, mental and spiritual immune system which
can also be shut down. And over time, all our unresolved conflicts, issues, emotions...
that are not cleared or healed are suppressed deeper and deeper into the subconscious...
to be even more stubbornly lodged within the matrix of our energy fields, chakras, or even
deeper within our central core. If this goes on for any length of time, this will make you
really ill, deathly ill, spiritually ill. The being can only hold so much stuff before it
is so overwhelmed - it cannot take any more and eventually dies.
ask me, why do they need so much healing? If your condition was simply physical, ones
healing would be an easier and quicker matter, but we are speaking of emotions and
energies, the mind and consciousness. Consider that the suppression of all these things
have been going on for - not just a few years in this one life - but lifetimes. One wants
to freely move forward in life, but all this stuff being dragged along with us
cannot help but be a weighty burden upon our spirits and an insurmountable obstacle in our
lives... one which can't be ignored forever.
The Dark Night of the Soul
Of course, we can say that the intelligent idea is not to suppress our personal problems,
negativity or dis-eases in the first place (easier said than done). Or failing this,
simply hoping that by ignoring or distracting ourselves from unpleasant situations and
feelings... they will just go away, and they do, at a price that must be paid at a later
the Healing Crisis" on these other levels have been held at bay for waaaay too
long, it eventually devolves into The Dark Night of the Soul". The phrase
Dark Night is the mild description - its more like the Dark
Season. Where the Healing Crisis may last only a few hours or days, the
Dark Night of the Soul may last weeks, months or even years. And just like the
Healing Crisis, this Dark Night is one way Spirit is trying to work out our
If the soul has been carrying this garbage for eons,
there comes a time - in one life or another - when it must go through the process of
clearing it out. Its not pretty or fun in any sense of the word - its actually
a sort of Purgatory or Hell on earth, but if the soul hopes to be free of its baggage, it
must go through this purification.
healing work accelerates this purification by digging into the hidden nooks and crannies
of your subconscious, energy fields, chakras, and central core... dislodging and bringing
up to the surface your ego resistances, suppressed issues, and negative energies (and
more). You may become conscious of a lot of old past life memories and may also relive
some unpleasant traumas. When this happens, it will NOT feel pleasant nor seem good to you
AT ALL - especially to your ego-mind - which was totally in judgment about this stuff and
suppressed it down there in the first place. However, like the Healing Crisis, this is the
only way of processing out this junk through your body-mind-emotions.
you are sensing these things happening, it is a sure sign it is on its way out of you
(its what stuff you are not feeling that should be of concern to you). If you did
not go through this purging/purification process, this stuff would remain inside and
continue to eat you up and run your life (but you may not realize this till its too
late). So when this process is happening and this stuff is in your face, do not give up on
the healing work - in fact, this may be the best time to do even more. Sometimes it is at
the very pinnacle of a major breakthrough that the most negative stuff appears. If you
allow you stuff to stop you from continuing the healing - it wins, you lose.
human beings, there are so many things we have a hard time doing through our own power
working through all this suppressed stuff is one of them. This is why Spirit has
brought you this healing work we all need help from a Higher Power. As long as you
are willing to receive and work with Spirit, we will help you move through this stuff as
fast as possible but it is your choice to do so or not.
