My spirit guides and I often tell folks to focus on what they want, not on what they do not want. So is it wrong to ignore what you don’t want, even if it’s right there in your face? Is that burying your head in the sand?
Barbara Clark shares her perspective and wisdom with us today.
Spirit often tells people that their bodies can heal themselves if they get themselves out of their bodies’ way.
For a long time I wondered what the difference was between getting out of the way and putting your head in the sand. I definitely didn’t know the difference when I set out on my own journey of growth and expansion with a health issue three years ago.
With my background in EFT, ZPoint, Reiki, and Divine Love Healing, I knew there had to be an underlying emotional cause. I was sufficiently connected to my body to know what treatment it wanted or didn’t want. But I still was unclear about the difference between getting out of my own way and putting my head in the sand.
So for a time I put my head in the sand and travelled through the various stages, both emotional and physical, that I suspect many people facing so called potentially “serious” illness go through.
Because of my background, I missed out the “why me?” and “poor me” phases but I visited all the other places we can go when faced with dis-ease. If you find yourself in a “why me?” or a “poor me” stage, don’t beat yourself up about it. Accept it, be with it for a while, truly feel it, and know it will pass. You don’t live there, you are only visiting!
The disassociation phase is, I believe, a very important one. It was during this phase that I made a big discovery. Disassociation from the “dis-eased” part is the very last thing it needs. It needs love, true, deep love and appreciation. I gained deep knowing from my disassociation phase.
I needed to truly, truly love and appreciate my body, not just say the words, have an intellectual understanding or a belief. I had to love so deeply that the love truly permeated my cells. That is what they responded to. Although intellect and belief help, they are surface helpers. I needed to go far beyond that, into a deep, cellular loving and knowing.
When I got to that deep loving and knowing, I realised I’d discovered the difference between getting myself out of the way and putting my head in the sand. There was a level of true acceptance, deep love and knowing in getting and staying out of my body’s way. All the energy I’d used putting my head in the sand, and it takes a lot of energy to do that, was freed up to be used in a positive, loving, healing way.
We don’t think twice when our bodies recover from a cold, a pulled muscle, or a cut finger. Why then do we believe there are some dis-eases it can’t heal? That makes no sense to me.
I wish anyone who is faced with dis-ease a very loving journey. Be gentle with yourself.
