When you are challenged with an illness or challenge in life you may ponder the question -What does it mean to heal? Some of you think that healing is a return to the previous state of health. If this is a good state than if may be optimal to return to it if possible. But what happens when you are confronted with a chronic illness or one that may be improved upon but may always be a presence in your life.
The word “health” is derived from the Anglo Saxon, Hal, which means, “heal” and “whole”. A simple definition of healing is “to make whole”. In this light, the way we achieve wholeness is by coming into relationship with all parts of ourselves. The same root word that gives us heal and whole also gives us holy, therefore adding the spiritual dimension to healing.
The term holistic healing is defined as a person’s emotional, mental, spiritual self returns to wholeness. Healing is an ongoing process that requires each individual to take responsibility for their own healing as well as being in relationship with a healer who is a consultant and guide as well as a fellow explorer. Authentic healing often requires changes in your lifestyle and thought process. Attitudes and habits will gently shift that no longer serve you and will be replaced by new perspectives that encourage health.
When we look at healing with this perspective, illness becomes a crucial effort to reach for increased wholeness of spirit rather than a disruption of life. When we listen very closely to our bodies and emotions we receive clues as to what may be out of balance or out of relationship in our lives. Receiving this information without judgment will lead us to the correct modalities and choices that will lead to transformation.
In my healing work I use a synergistic approach to healing encompassing several modalities. This integration of approaches supports the individual’s healing journey and many people report making progress very quickly.
This reconnection of mind. body.soul is the essence of healing. It is a process that reaches deeply into your being so that you are brought into greater synchrony with the larger whole of which you are a part. Knowing that illnesses are not obstacles in our lives but rather opportunities to move forward and heal ourselves.
Non Dual Healing has offered me such deep insight in how we live our lives and how we can return to wholeness. This is the foundation of all my healing sessions as it works with you to reach the core of your authentic truth. Non-dual healing works at the place of wholeness which already exists including the physical, emotional and spiritual. The answer to wholeness is in our lounging, to be still, to listen to what is calling out to you. Non Dual Healing is a unique and compassionate healing paradigm that is based on having a dynamic and awake relationship with Reality As It Is.
Let me define the term non dual. Most of us often consider our lives to be separate, separate from other people, from nature and animals. This dualistic version of ego-mind which we need to some degree to survive can also cause quite a bit of suffering. However in learning about non dual wisdom and receiving healing we can grow and live in life with increased peace and ease.
When teaching mindfulness meditation I often use an analogy of ocean waves in the context of the breath moving in and out of the body. Waves arise out of the ocean, hit the shore and then what occurs? Where do they return, back into the ocean. Noting that waves are not separate from the ocean, that our breath is not separate from our being, our mind is not separate from our body, we can take this a step further and note that all life is beautifully connected.
This healing returns us to the rectified relationship between aspects of the Tree of Life (a template for our humanness) that were split off during childhood and adolescence. Meaningful transformation occurs as we welcome back those 'split off' parts of ourselves. Non-dual Healing is a powerful path to facilitating deep foundational change - both internally within ourselves, and externally in all areas of our life.
Working within this paradigm, we learn to relate to ourselves and our difficulties in a new and compassionate. We grow in wisdom and deepen our capacity for life. Whether our suffering is physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, each session creates space for growth and a deepening of awareness. Although a complete recovery may not occur I have found that healing of wholeness begins to take place offering us a place of comfort and strength to live our lives the best we can.
