Captive – Appropiate name for feeling trapped

I’ve been thinking about healing. Some people believe healing happens to them. Or maybe they are being punished for some perceived slight by their diety. If they get better, they believe either the doctors or the alternative healers cured them or healed them. There is a big missing component for me. It is the person’s own participation in the equation and their place on their own path.

Have you ever considered that there may be a strong spiritual cause for an illness? According to Louise Hays and many other spiritual teachers, there is. I agree with them. Louise Hays has a book called “Heal Your Mind, Heal Your Body”.

This is what I believe. We are all given things to experience in this life and sometimes that involves illnesses or injuries. I believe that we can learn from those experiences. When we learn what we need from the these events in our life, we heal and move on. In some cases, we receive healing frequencies that assist us in reaching a state of health. I believe these frequencies allow our emotional blocks to be removed to help facilitate our healing.

So what is our part in the healing equation? For me, I believe that if we are to learn something from the episode and we get that part, the illness goes away or we heal our injuries faster. And it’s not about how to deal with the illness but there is a component to that as well. Sometimes it’s a matter of accepting what is. In doing that, it can change and go away.

Twice I received injuries that required me to ask for help. I was terrible at asking for help. I saw it as a weakness. The first time I was single and I grudgingly accepted help. I was so uncomfortable relying on others. I didn’t learn my lesson well. I went through it again many years later and in tears, I called a friend to ask for help. And it broke the log jam.

I learned that people love to help because they get far more out of it than the person receiving the help. Yet so many of us just hate to ask for help!

There is more to share but I’ll save it for another blog.

What illnesses or injuries have you had and did you notice any internal growth in your going through the experiences? Did you notice how your attitude affected your healing process?
