can be likened to an army
that fights off foreign substances (chemical toxins, viruses,
bacterias) which invade its space. When your inner
army/immune system is activated, such symptoms as fever,
fatigue and inflamation... may be exhibited.
typical psychological reaction towards these symptoms is to label and
as a "Crisis" if not a disease... when in actuality,
these are signs that
ones “inner army” is doing its job to
purify and heal the body. While
typically suppresses these symptoms with drugs,
the toxins (most drugs are - toxic) remain and accumulate
the tissues. Over
time, these tissues can hold only so much of this
stuff before the body systems become overwhelmed,
shuts down and dies.
have something of a spiritual energetic immune
system which helps process and clear such "symptoms" as anger, fear,
depression and sadness... that are stuck within our mental and
emotional bodies. If
we accumulate too much of this "stuff" and these conflicts, issues and
emotions are not cleared, over time they may become
and deeper into the subconscious... to be even more stubbornly
lodged within the matrix of our energy field, chakras, or even
within our core.
The varied energetic and mental bodies can only hold so much
overwhelmed and eventually shut down. There may not
be a definitive emotional or
mental death (like what occurs to the physical body) but
it may feel like it to the person who is experiencing this first
often ask me why they need so much
healing. Consider that the ego-mind
(subject to the soul
consciousness) has been suppressing emotions
and thought patterns... not just for a
few years in this one life, but lifetimes after lifetime in many different bodily
forms. And when this one life ends, most of this
“stuff” (created by the soul consciousness and
ego-mind) gets dragged over into the next incarnation,
recreated over and over again (until it is eventually cleared).
But you do have a choice - heal it
wait till another life. In any case, none of this stuff is going to
magically clear up all by itself (if it did, it would have already happened lifetimes ago).
“The Dark Night of the Soul"
We may think (and
hope) that by
ignoring or distracting ourselves from unpleasant situations and
feelings they will just go away... and from our conscious awareness
may (for a time) but not from our subconscious nor from our energy
field - this stuff continues to
run our life and continues to eat us up (from the
inside-out). But fortunately, at some point, everything that we have
stored away into the deep
recesses of our being comes out and must be dealt with - this is our karma.
“Healing Crisis" is a natural process by which we release stuff and
heal. But if this process has been artificially or willfully suppressed
for too long (like lifetimes long), it eventually
devolves into a more dramatic immune response called “The Dark Night of
the Soul". The phrase
“Dark Night” is a misnomer -
like "The Dark Season of the Soul”, for where the
Crisis” may last only a few hours or days, the
Night of the Soul” may last weeks, months or even years. And
just like the Healing Crisis is for the body, this “Dark Night” is one
way Spirit is trying to help us confront, heal and process out the
massive, deep and old stuff that is troubling our soul.
has been carrying this garbage for eons, there comes a time when the
soul says "Enough ! This next life I are going to clear as much of this stuff out as I can".
Such a life time may not be pretty or fun in any sense of the
word - it may actually be a sort of Purgatory (or Hell) on
earth... but for the soul to be free, 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 core...
dislodging and bringing up to the surface any resistances,
suppressed issues, negative energies and whatever else is stuck
there (you may even become
conscious or possibly re-live some past life memories and
associated traumas). Though your ego-mind may again judge all this
stuff as "bad" and try to suppress it (which is how it
got down there in the first place) the energy work will help
you let it all go.
the purification process, when you
are sensing these unpleasant feelings, thoughts or memories occurring,
sure sign they are on their way up and out
(verse remaining stuck hidden inside). When this is occurring, do not
listen to the words of doubt and fear the ego-mind screams to force you to give up on
healing work (quite the contrary - this may be a good time to do even more work !). It
is often at the very pinnacle of a major breakthrough that the most
negative stuff appears. If you allow your stuff to stop you from
continuing the healing - it wins, you lose.
There are so many things we
have a hard time doing on our own... working
through our stuff is one of them. This is why
Spirit has brought you this healing work. As long as you are willing,
we will help you move through this stuff as fast and as easy as
possible – but it is your choice to do so or not.
