Understanding the Process - The Pressure Cooker
|Healing has no finish line or completion point.
So to ask "when does healing stop?"
is like asking "where is the horizon?"
As our world spins this line moves and our answer is circular - no beginning... no end.
Healing is a process not a destination
When you go through the spiritual healing process, all sorts of confusing,
conflicting uncomfortable thoughts and feelings may come to the
surface. When this happens, it's natural to think that the healing
is not working. This can't be further from the truth. Of course we all
want a quick fix or easy way out of every problem, but to be
successful with anything in life (especially healing), one must be
able to stay in the process and not bail out when the going gets tough.
It's like using a pressure cooker - you have to keep the lid sealed on
tight if you want your food to cook quickly and completely. If you are really
serious about healing, give it a chance - do enough sessions and see
Similar to the the transformation of caterpillar to
butterfly, the transformation of your soul does not happen in
the light but in the dark, does not happen instantly
but over time, does not happen by self effort
but by letting go and surrendering to God. Don’t be in such a rush
to leave the cocoon before the miracle completes.
If you come to this work expecting instant results
(like you have come and left so many other things)
you will be setting yourself up to again be disappointed.
We are quick to compare (and judge) all healers against histories
extraordinary (if not mythic) examples. Jesus's life (to the
extent it was accurately recorded) is a great example to emulate,
but it also leaves the impression that healing is a one shot deal
or quick fix. Jesus did not instantaneously cure or totally enlighten
everyone who came to him. There are a few stories where his intervention
made possible the blind to see and the crippled to walk... yet we are
more than physical bodies with physical ailments - we are extremely
complex beings who exist on more levels of reality than we are aware.
Healing on all these levels (of the body mind heart and soul) is a
long process that takes a lot of faith, patience, persistence and hard
work. And this was why Jesus's disciples were with him for a few years -
healing and enlightenment is more involved than can be transmitted in a
few meetings (or sessions).
(Psalm 1:1-6; Luke 6:20-23)
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of
heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed
are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will
be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown
mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of
God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of
righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Though no "sane" person would willingly put themselves in such a
position, healing carries with it conflict and uncertainty. This is the
contradiction of a spiritual life:
Those who lose win.
Those who come last are first.
Those who give receive.
Those who brave darkness become light
"The Dark Night of the Soul"
Jesus said “Follow me and take up your cross”.
When a person is going through the healing process, they may feel as if
dropped into a dark impenetrable shadow, treading in an empty space,
weighed down by deep despair, boxed in by thick walls of resistance
(hardly descriptions of anything pleasant or nice). All
uncomfortable feelings, no doubt. And you may think "Spirit is doing all
this to me". Not true. All that you are experiencing and feeling pre-existed
within you, long before "we" Spirit came along and activated your
healing. Everything you experience is inside you somewhere, buried,
lost, or hidden deep within. Spirit is simply "stirring the pot" of your
subconscious mind and energy field, bringing up what stuff needs to be
transformed, healed or released.
Though this healing work may intensify your feelings and enhance your
awareness beyond what you normally experience, to participate in the
healing process does require faith and trust - when your experience is
troubling or painful... and faith and trust - when you experience
nothing at all.
There are times you may feel nothing happening during a healing sessions
(at various stages along the path, this is common). At other times you
may feel like you are plugged into the universal wall socket.... The
range of experiences are virtually infinite (see Testimonials
the healing path may feel like:
a fast furious ride on a roller coaster
a slow arduous climb up a mountain
a leisurely drive down the highway
a wade in the shallow end of a clear pool
a plunge into the murky depths of an ocean.
Accept and flow with whatever comes
and you will be effortlessly carried
deeper and deeper into your core.
This is extremely advanced work that goes to the root causes of your
condition - to the very highest, lowest, deepest and most peripheral
levels of your being. Very few souls are aware of everything that occurs
on all these levels, least of all on the higher
dimensions and subtle energy fields extending way far off the
body. No matter, every session has some affect whether you are aware of
it or not. I have found that most women (generally) are more apt to have
a heightened sensitivity (and receptivity) to this work due in part to a
greater attention they have given to their emotional and psychic
awareness... in contrast to most men (in this westernized society at
least) who are (generally) over-fixated on the physical body
If you feel nothing during a healing session, you may notice changes in
your mood and energy the next morning, or within a few days. If not,
Healing that occurs
on the higher dimensions of your soul
on the peripheral layers of your energy field
in the deepest wells of your heart
takes time to trickle down into your human awareness.
but aware or not, this work will have its effect.
Seeing the Forest from the Trees
When you are in the midst of your own "stuff, it's very difficult to
have a clear perspective about where you are at in your healing
process and spiritual path. This is why others (who are more
objective) usually see the changes in you when you do not. This is also
why it is important to work with a healer - they have already been on
this journey and know their way through.
This work is cumulative
each session builds on and magnifies the results of previous
sessions. In other words, the more healing work you do, the greater the
results you receive. If you only do one session, I am sure it will be of
some benefit (perhaps even saving you from some unnecessary hardship,
pain and suffering further on down the road). But if you want to receive
the maximum benefits from this work, many sessions are needed.
The healing work does not make you experience something that is not
already inside of you... nor does it make you feel something that you
would not otherwise experience at some (near or distant) time in your
future. Rather, it simply helps bring all that is the "Truth" of who you
are and what you hold within (be it light or dark, good or bad, pleasant
or unpleasant) up to the surface of your conscious awareness... there to
be transformed and healed in a safer, faster and easier manner than if
you did it alone.
This healing work is Not about avoiding
It IS about uncovering and releasing lifetimes of:
emotional buttons that keep you in reaction
psychic traumas that make life distressing
subconscious shadows that sabotage relationships
addictions that control your life actions
secret memories that trouble your dreams
resistances holding you in ignorance denial and fear
All this (and more) are festering under the surface
slowly and insidiously eroding your passion.
When we judge any experience, feeling or memory as
"undesirable", we separate and condemn them into the shadows, to be
projected out into the universe onto others. These rejected parts are
simply energy we do not yet know how to work with.. and as such, they
hold a power that can be used in many positive ways. If we can dispense
with the judgment, we may see these feelings of anger, grief, sadness,
depression... in ourselves and in others, as gifts or "opportunities"
for change (instead of things to get rid of and blame). The healing
work offers a means for this restoration and wholeness, self forgiveness
Sometimes our truth is fiery bold and
more we can accept and embrace...
all of our Sadness - the greater our Joys
all of our Anger - the greater our Life
all of our Hatred - the greater our Love
all of our Fear - the greater our Courage
all of our Shadow – the greater our Light
all of our Limits – the greater our Triumph
Because of its potential as a destructive force, the energy of anger has
been quite maligned in our society. It has been suppressed, repressed,
misjudged, misunderstood, misdirected, misused and feared... yet anger
in its pure form is just the raw and primal creative life force. The
pure energy of anger is not bad in and of itself, only in how we use or
abuse it (remember Jesus in the Temple with the money changers). In my
opinion, suppressed anger is the # 1 emotional energetic cause of cancer
(and many other illnesses).
Sometimes our truth is inward quiet
We expect of ourselves to always have a happy face, to always be
positive and strong... and if we are not there is something wrong. There
is much in our personal and collective (world) history that we could and
should be sad about. Many of us have had terribly painful experiences
that wounded us deeply... and still we may secretly feel helpless or
powerless about them. We have a right to feel sad, angry and cry - it is
a part of our life experience - a part of our "Truth"... and that part
holds a special gift, a lesson, some wisdom, a deeper insight into being
The human ego minds' tendency is to judge, label and energetically
charge our experiences with a negative or positive spin. Creating a
personal story around or about our experience does not make it the
"Ultimate Truth"... only a truth that exists in our own minds. If we
want to experience ourselves within a grander context, it's important to
align or harmonize our small selves to the ways our "Higher Selves" sees
and know us.
Spirit sees us and our lives
clearly.. completely.. unconditionally, in the fullness of one moment..
and for all time, beginning to end.. forwards and backwards.. fast and
slow, upside-down.. inside-out.. around and about
But as long as we judge our life experiences according
to conceptual ego mind understanding, our lives will never be
100% aligned to what is the Universal Eternal Ultimate "Truth"
(especially when what we judge as “bad”, Spirit may consider “good”).
Taking Spirits perspective on as ones own is called “Crazy
"Good" or "Bad", All that happens on this earthly plane is used by
Spirit in ways beyond our conscious knowing or controlling. From Spirits
perspective, there are no unplanned accidents... All is used to
process out our karma, learn our soul lessons and evolve into and
manifest our highest potential.
the healing process we may see, feel, and become intimately reacquainted with parts
of ourselves that are rotten, dark, smelly, not very nice or
pretty. Whatever comes up, remember “This Too
