Go deep within your inner stillness, and feel Divine Mind’s presence within. Hold out your empty hands, symbolic of leaving preconceptions behind, symbolic of seeking True answers, and ask, “What is the essence of healing?” Let these words resonate within you, as though in a vast cavern. The word essence reverberates with these thoughts, “For what do you care most deeply?” “What is your own essence?”; “What is your Truth?”; “Where is your deepest hurt, your pain, your sorrow, that all may be healed?”
Here’s what I see today:
The essence of Life is movement and change.
Sickness comes either when we try to “pluck” a thing out of its constant motion, and freeze it to make it permanent or when we attach ourselves to the things we perceive and experience.
First, the body is the “thing” we most often “freeze”. Sickness in the body arises because we have frozen thoughts or feelings that try to convince us that if we hold on to them, the body will be reliable for us as a permanent thing.
Healing the body comes in three parts. 1) Recognizing and releasing those thoughts and emotions that we have frozen in order to maintain the reliability of the body 2) Allowing Life Itself to flow in and through the body–keeping the flow of Life energy at all times (being attuned with the constancy of change, Truly “going with the flow”) 3) Being both a participant in and an observer to the flow of Life.
Second, my essence, at its core participates in the movement and change, but from a point of stillness. Movement happens around my essence, but it does not affect that core.
You’ve heard the phrase, “we are spiritual beings having a human experience”. Just so. Our Spirit–our essence–is unchangeable, unmovable.
When we attach to Our Spirit-Self and observe from Its place of Its Truth (unchangeable, unmovable), the perception of movement ceases, and is replaced with the experience of being Spirit.
From this, healing can be approached in these two ways: 1) Learn to observe from that point of our Spirit-Self, where we are the observer to the movement, being truly our Spirit, but having a human experience or 2) we can experience the flow, the movement, the change, but not be attached to it. As anything arises–thoughts, emotions, interactions, just let them go and move on.
