Healing the temple

I’ve talked in here a bunch about emotional healing. Physical healing is much the same. I have not had a lot of issues there but have had some contact with people who have. I can only offer a few observations that may help a little, should you have a healing journey.

First thing is acceptance. As long as you are resisting what is, including the physical distress, healing is compromised. This includes even pain. Pain is the bodies signal that something is wrong. Allowing the signal means it is accepted and it will subside. But as long as you push against pain, it will push back. This is not an easy trick to learn and may not work in all cases. You have to be conscious enough to do it. But dang it works well if you can simply step into the pain. Simply allow what is.

A good sign you are accepting is if you are able to share about it, to be seen as having a challenge. I don’t mean complaining at everyone that you are a victim of this illness. And I don’t mean being seen as the illness. These are resistance. I mean sharing more like you need a better dentist or your car tire has been going flat. You are asking for resources and sharing.

Another important aspect is learning about it. Adam the Dreamhealer suggests you get to know a health issue and what it looks like so you can visualize it properly. You are ready to engage it. Then see it healing, step by step. He suggests seeing it burned in fire, zapped with lightening, etc. You may notice a common element – light. Light is the flow, it is the healer. Some forms of illness are, from an energetic perspective, the bodies response to darkness, to inertia. This can include things like tumors and cysts. So what is most needed is light. Flood it with light. White is ideal but use the intuition. Sometimes white and some other colour alternated may help sooth and heal. What feels good. If you find physical light helps in your visualization use that – shine a lamp on the area and see the light all over the diseased area.

The ego has a habit of making things wrong to make its sense of self right. You want to avoid any ideas that the body is wrong. Don’t make your body wrong to feel better. Your body is magnificent and has the ability to self-heal if you give it the right instructions and attention. See it and feel it being better and better.

If you are a meditator and know Samyama or sidhis (siddhis), that is the enhanced version of attention. Focused intention within open awareness gives you an exponential step up in power. But in any case, that is the key – open awareness and simple focus or intention. This is not about mind, it is about energy.

These tools are very powerful resources we can direct at any part of our life.
Don’t resist it, that is darkness. Allow it, then heal it.

    Hi David,

    Is meditation basically a healing practice, where the more resistance you let go of the closer you get to awakening? And then when you are really close, all you need is a little push like what Lorne and Lucia offers?

    Or does meditation, like TM, has some extra quality that simple healing by allowing or some other process doesn’t have? Or is meditation just a very effective way to heal?

    The reason I’m asking is, that I’ve received so much benefit from something called TRE (basically kriyas) and I’m wondering if this healing could take me to awakening if I supplement it with some Darshan here and there.

    I like TM a lot, but right now I just find TRE more effective for me in order to let go of anxiety, anger, sadness etc.

      Hi N
      It could be seen that way but more fundamentally, meditation is a practice for connecting to source. In the process, the deeper rest gives an opportunity for healing and also refinement.

      It’s that combination that brings the familiarity and clarity for a smooth awakening.

      I’ve found mediation itself very effective. But there can sometimes be hard nuts that are being reinforced by life circumstance. In such a case, a skilled energy healer can help bring us along.

      I found TM very effective for what you describe but each of us are wired differently and carry our own loads. Go with what works for you but I’d recommend keeping TM as a tool to help with connecting to source.

    As a broad note, here are a couple of articles that talk about types of meditation and what meditation is (vs hypnosis).

    http://davidya.ca/2013/11/06/what-is-meditation/

    The Key Posts tab above also has a Practices section.

    • N says:

      Thanks, David. I thought I read both articles, but apparently only read “choosing a meditation”.

      About connecting to source, doesn’t that happen automatically as one heals?

      • Davidya says:

        Hi N
        Not necessarily. While source becomes more accessible with inner clarity, we still may need to bring attention to it. It may not become more conscious.

        I’ve met people with a great deal of clarity but who where oblivious to source itself.

        This is why I talk about increasing clarity and consciousness both.

    Great, thanks.

    Can you elaborate a bit on this comment?:

    “There also seems to be an effect of being famous (well-known in group consciousness) if the person deals with it productively (vs amplifying the ego).”

    What are the mechanics/ why does that happen?

    • Davidya says:

      Hi N

      Well – this is more conjecture but fame can be quite transformative for people, although rarely easy. Some handle it badly or use it for self-aggrandizement. And some grow with it. My assumption is the second is why some of the famous are on Rose’s list.

      Waking up is about universal consciousness so expanding consciousness via group awareness may be a kind of “technique”.

      Personally I recommend mediation though. Fame is not an easy road.

      • N says:

        It would also seem to me that fame and money magnify the personality. So if it is a person with a great desire for service, honesty and enlightenment then that person will use the increased power for those purposes.

        Also, the personality traits would be reflected in the public’s criticism and praise, which would push the person’s shadow to the surface, thus making it clearer what most go (if the person is willing of course).

        Do you agree with that?

    Hope you had a nice Christmas and have a good New Year by the way :).
