Healing our Bodies and Our Emotions

Sometimes the aches and pains we feel in this lifetime, especially ones that are chronic or for which  the doctors have no explanation may be a message from our bodies concerning an emotional issue. I have written previously how every time I have a cold, I will ask my body what message it is trying to send me. I have noticed that I have not suffered many colds lately, and my back has not caused me more than just a twinge, for a couple of years. I realize that just the business of living life causes us the occasional sickness and not every one of our aches and pains has a message, but when we seem to have something recurring on a regular basis, it is often helpful to tune into the non physical realm to gain some insight.

Recently I was called upon to assist a woman who was having chronic pain in her lower abdomen. She had gone to the doctors several times, been tested for hernias and countless other possible causes. The doctors could not find the source of her pain and offered no explanation. I guess as a last resort she sought me out. Quickly after tuning into her energy, I sensed the pain was a result of the emotional trauma she had suffered many years ago when she lost a baby only several hours after she was born. Over the course of the years she had buried those unresolved emotions deep inside, and suffered from years of guilt and sorrow as a result of this loss. During our session we were able to contact the soul of her child, who had a message for her of love and acceptance. She told her mother that she frequently visited her and wanted her to release the pain from this loss and realize that there was no fault on anyone's part. During our session this woman was able to release her pain from this loss and find closure in this most painful event. I was able to help her find comfort in the knowledge that her daughter was close by and visited her many times. Since this healing session, which happened about a month ago, she has since suffered no pain in her lower abdomen.

Many times pains we feel may also be linked to events in previous lives. A lot of times our souls remember these events and recreate the pain in the life we are now living. Once I was sending healing energy to an acquaintance who had some injury to her foot and ankle and while tuning in to her body I was able to tune into two previous lives where she had injured the same foot. How do we find resolution when we do not even consciously remember the events that are causing us pain? Many times if we have unresolved issues in one particular life, we will reincarnate and end up repeating the same patterns until that particular issue is resolved. It may be something simple like breaking a leg at the same age in every lifetime, or it could be more complex, like having children who die at a young age, or contracting an illness that takes our life at around the same age of each lifetime. I once related how I had contacted the soul of my husband in this lifetime to remind him that just because he had died young in a previous lifetime which we shared together did not mean he had to repeat the occurrence. I reminded his soul that this was a different lifetime and his time was not over yet. He quickly recovered from the sickness which was bothering him and we have had no recurrences.

If you feel that you may be plagued by a physical issue that has its roots in an emotional event from the past or even a past life memory, there is help. Many times we need help in resolving these issues, because we are too close to our own issues to see clearly. Many times we may not be aware that a physical issue is rooted in the emotional realm, but if it is chronic or seems to have no diagnosis or explanation from medical science then there is a good chance that it is rooted in the emotional realm.
There is help from the Higher Realms. Our guides and Angels are always available to help us resolve issues that seem to continually plague us. All of the medical advice and pills in the world will not resolve a physical issue if it is rooted in the emotions.

How do we get answers from the Angels concerning these issues? One way is to ask them for a dream before you go to bed at night. Another is to seek out those who specialize in this type of healing. Remember that the reason something continually reoccurs is so that it can be healed. The emotions desire to be healed and resolved probably more than you want to resolve them. You do not have to be in the presence of a healer to get the answers you need. There is no distance in the non physical realm. Simply ask and the answers will be given to you. The Universe knows what you need and who is the best one to assist you in receiving the help you need. Don't be afraid to ask!

Shape Shifting

Years ago I used to paint. I enjoyed painting murals especially. I remember one time I was painting a mural in a local business and a customer came up to me and remarked something about me being an artist. I think maybe she wanted to see some of my work displayed somewhere or asked me if I had any pieces for sale. I replied that I was not really an artist. I just did this for fun. My real job was working at the Post Office. I remember that she told me not ever to sell myself short. She told me that I was an artist whether I saw myself as one or not.

Fast forward about ten or eleven years. I went to a clairvoyant who told me that I was a healer. She told me that I would bring physical and emotional healing to many through the messages I heard from the Angels. She asked me why I didn't do anything with this gift I had. I told her that I did not really know how to incorporate that into my life.  " I just work at the Post Office," I remember telling her.  "Sweetheart," I remember her saying, " I don't ever want to hear you say you just work at the Post Office ever again. You are a healer. You just need to see yourself as one."

Now three years later I have learned to incorporate this gift into my life somewhat. But I think somewhere deep inside I thought that I was still attaining to the title, that "healer"  or "messenger" was something that I would like to be or maybe would be someday. Then came a couple weeks of silence from the Higher Realms. At first I just thought, okay, I just need a break. But one day I said to my Guides and Angels, "okay, I just need something. Tell me something. Anything."

I sat down in my healing room with a couple of books and I told the Angels that I was just going to open book randomly and whatever I read I was going to take it as a message for me from Them.

The book I picked up was called Shape Shifting. The page I opened to was a story of a girl who aspired to be a dancer. Every day she practiced for hours and hours. But she never felt ready to audition. Her mother took her to see the author of the book who asked her to dance for her. She related that it was the most beautiful dancing she had ever seen. The author of this book told the girl that as long as she saw herself as a dancer sometime in the future that it would never happen. She had to realize she was already a dancer. When the girl "shape shifted" her thinking, she got hired by a major dance troupe within a week.

What do you aspire to? Do your dreams always seem just beyond your reach? Maybe you need to shift how you see yourself! Yes, the young girl still had to audition. She still had to practice. Her career as a dancer didn't fall out of the sky. But she had to first change how she saw herself. I am sure that I am not the only person who has not seen myself as the person I aspired to be. Let us all learn to see ourselves in the most grand scenarios, accomplishing our dreams and living our lives to the fullest. Just as a wizard shape shifts into fish or animals, let us shape shift into the person we would like to be. All we need to do is realize that we are already that person. All the potential of what we would love to do and be is already within us. We just need to see it.

Where's the Joy?

In case you haven't noticed I have taken a couple of weeks off from posting blogs. I am not saying that I have not been receiving any messages from the Other Realms but the messages I have been receiving have been for specific people and specific circumstances, not for general information or for inspiration from which we all can benefit.  I have received some signs that the Angels have not forgotten about me and are still around ( I need that kind of thing and I guess They know that).

This week while vacationing at the beach a white feather just kind of fluttered down from the sky and landed at my feet. Granted, I was sitting outside. Granted, there were seagulls flying overhead. Yes, I understand that the chances of a feather fluttering down were not all that unusual. However, I will mention that during a previous vacation at the beach one of those wonderful seagulls decided to take that moment to relieve himself of his dinner on my head. I also took that as a sign of what was going on in my life at that time. This time I got a feather. I take that as a sign that all is well this time and that the Angels are close by and looking out for me and my family as we vacation at the beach.

It was interesting to me what my emotions were doing this time as we vacationed at the beach. In my own personal life all seems to be well but I struggle to help my daughter through a difficult time in her life. I am not sure if it was this that weighed on my heart or maybe I was picking up on the emotions of the general public. But it seems to me I had to remind myself that I was in fact on vacation at the beach and that all was well. I seemed to frequently be picking up on some sadness in or around me. I am not sure from where that was coming.  I am sure it was not coming from me.  Frequently I had to check in with my soul and go to that place where the joy resides. I had to continually send back the energies of sadness to their source and tap into that place of joy.

I have read that the past month has contained within it the intense frequencies of change resulting from three eclipses and the full and the new moon. Apparently this past month has been a cornucopia of intense energies. Yes I have felt that. And no, I am not so evolved that I have had clear communications from the Other Side as to how to interpret the intense emotions I have been experiencing. Yes. I am forty eight years old and it is possible I am just in the throes of peri -menopause as my husband suggests. Or maybe it is some thing else.

This is what I suggest. In those times where emotions are running rampant and especially for those of us who feel the emotions of others especially when we are in large groups of people:  go to your happy place!! Breathe deeply!! Remind yourself that all is well. Find that place inside of you where the joy resides and tap into it. No I do not know why on this particular vacation to the beach I could not seem to get away from that feeling of sadness. But this is what I did. I sent those feelings of sadness back to their Source and tapped into that place inside of me that is pure joy. I chose to feel the joy and experience  the joy. I chose to disconnect from the people that I could possibly be picking up feelings of discontent or sadness. I did not deny that the sadness existed. I just chose to tap into the feelings of joy instead. It is a choice!!

I guess this is my sentiment for the day. Sometimes we may be in the most ideal of circumstances. In my case, my favorite place in the world is at the beach. But for some reason, I felt sadness. I am sure I was picking up on some sort of emotions coming from someone around me, possibly someone I know, but maybe someone I do not know. I am sorry that I was not able to determine who that person was and I was not able to assist them. Sometimes I can help. Sometimes I can't. But my job was to get to my happy place. I cannot be everything to everyone. I needed a vacation. I had to send those emotions away in order to enjoy my vacation. And that's okay too, Getting to that place of joy is what is most important. That is what changes our life for the better. I have gotten pretty good at finding that place of joy within me and the emotions of others seem to disappear. There is a time when I am able to tap into those emotions and assist those in need. And sometimes I just need to sit by the water in the sun and enjoy myself. Both  are equally important.

To those of you who are sensitive to the emotions of others and sometimes find yourself feeling a conflicting emotion from the one you expected to feel, take heart!! Just choose to feel differently! You are allowed to send those lower emotions away and feel joy instead!! Just tap into that place inside of you where joy resides and invite her in!!
