Health & Healing

I’m so happy to share the path of healing I’m continuously discovering! Remembering the beauty of Delphi, Greece.

Last Friday I started a series on Health & Healing that I’m continuing here. We’ve all heard the body referred to as the temple. In A Course in Miracles it tells us that if we’re guided by the ego, the body will be the temple of the ego and if we’re putting the Holy Spirit in charge, it will become the temple for the Spirit. ACIM tells us that we are to keep our focus on the altar which is our heart. Our Higher Holy Spirit Self speaks to us through our heart whether we recognize it or not.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt both the ego’s manipulations of body and particularly the cravings of the ego that seem to show up in the body, but are really in the mind. AND, I’ve also felt the guidance of the Spirit – that “still small voice” that is always speaking to me as well.

What I’ve learned is that, while the body is not real, only the Spirit is Real, with a capital R, in the sense of being eternal, infinite and perfect. The body is a representation of intention. It is a GREAT tool for the healing of the mind.

We have challenges in the body to learn and also to share with others in a way that is a teaching.
Everything is either a cry for Love or an opportunity to answer the cry for Love and some things appear to be both.

I believe that we each choose with great specificity our personal, individual expressions in each incarnation in order to have a unique expression that is perfectly designed for both our learning and our sharing/teaching.

For instance, I believe we choose everything from our astrology, numerology, genealogy, to our intelligence, gifts, talents, and more. AND we choose what karma we will be healing.

Our karma shows up as our belief systems and it shows up in our cellular structure and in the manifestations of illnesses physical, mental and emotional.

NONE of this is to punish us, but to give us the opportunity to develop a COMPLETE compassion for what’s being expressed and to LOVE ourselves and others free of all judgments and complaints. This opportunity is always available whether we’re the one who is seeming to be ill or not. It’s the same opportunity to rise in Love whether we’re the one who is judged or we’re the judger.

Taking responsibility and being grateful for the opportunity to heal IS healing. Blame and shame are the exact patterns that we’re healing when we’re experiencing illness AND when we’re witnessing it.

One of the simple things I can share with you is that so many people don’t get enough sleep. They’re sleep deprived for a myriad of reasons – or so they think. A Course in Miracles tells us so beautifully that “rest comes from waking, not from sleeping.” And still, the body does get so much benefit from sleep precisely because in dream time we are doing deep spiritual soul healing work.

Not allowing for enough sleep is unloving. We can demonstrate self-love through planning and intending to get PLENTY of rest.

I used to be phobic about not getting enough sleep.
When I was younger I would get nauseous if I didn’t get enough sleep.
I had an experience from a sleep over – where I probably ate excessive amounts of sugar and caffeinated drinks – and I didn’t get enough sleep and it seemed to cause me to vomit. I made the association that not getting enough sleep made me sick.

I used to need nine hours per night to feel rested. Nine hours! It seemed like so much and SUCH a waste of time. I used to be so WORRIED about wasting time.

In my 20’s, I would do all kinds of ridiculous things to try and reduce my sleeping time and I always ended up making myself sick.

Finally, when I deepened my spiritual practice and started to really get still with my Higher Holy Spirit Self and release the mountain of false beliefs, my sleep needs decreased down to 7 hours which is about what they are now.

Now, if I go a night without sleeping because of work and travel, it doesn’t really bother me much. My mind is stronger. I’m not afraid of getting less sleep than I prefer. I know that all is well either way and so I’m good.

I also have completely stopped the unloving habit of staying up late doing mindless self-medication things that I used to do. I look forward to bedtime and am usually ready for sleep by 9pm. I rarely wake up with an alarm and usually if I need to get up at a particular time I can simply intend that and even if I set an alarm, I’ll wake up 1 minute before.

Things have really changed. This comes from Love. Love IS the healer. We can have a healing, living practice of Love and achieve a deep and lasting Harmony.

Harmony is a spiritual quality of God and it’s our nature to express that fully. Let’s do it together!

We’re waking up together and I’m so grateful for that! If you’re finding what I’m sharing to be helpful won’t you please share at Facebook and twitter to let others know? Thank you!
