The Healing Crisis

The Immune System
Your Immune System can be likened to an army that fights off foreign substances (chemical toxins, viruses, and bacterias) which invade its space. When your inner army/immune system is activated, such symptoms as fever, fatigue and inflamation... may be exhibited. The typical psychological reaction towards these symptoms is to label and judge them 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 most western medicine typically suppresses these symptoms with drugs, the toxins (most drugs are - toxic) remain and accumulate within the tissues. Over time, these tissues can hold only so much of this stuff before the body systems become overwhelmed, shuts down and dies.

We also 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 suppressed deeper 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 of this stuff before they become 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 hand.

People 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 now or 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).

Facing the Abyss
“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 they 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.

The “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 - it’s more like "The Dark Season of the Soul”, for where the physical “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 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.

If the 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 process.

The 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.

Within the purification process, when you are sensing these unpleasant feelings, thoughts or memories occurring, it's a 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 the 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.
