One system that needs healing is our traditional medical system..  That is not a secret.  And it is no one’s fault.  Doctors and nurses are healers – they came to facilitate the healing of people and they have big hearts and care very much about their patients.  They went to medical school and were taught to diagnose ailments in a certain way and were given names for diseases which are simply a group of symptoms.  They were taught what drugs to prescribe for what diseases and when to use surgery to cut out the disease, which is typically when drugs are not enough to help.

There are also those doctors who serve in emergency situations and those who fix broken bones and deal with people who have severed joints or actually lost part of their body, had a car accident and other similar types of emergencies.

Once something reaches an emergency situation, it is much more difficult to help that person from an emotional standpoint immediately as there are deep roots that caused the emergency to occur. When a person survives an emergency, they often have a wake-up call but of course, it is best not to wait for an emergency to wake up.

The word “healer” has a lot of negative connotations and it has for many, many, many centuries.  People have been killed for being healers and people have been put on pedestals for being healers and none of that is in alignment with the truth of what a healer is.  A healer is really someone who facilitates the healing of others with and through God.  This does not mean they are on some pedestal, or better than others, or exempt from making mistakes or even inaccurate diagnoses.

When we facilitate the healing of others, we use tools and the words we have been guided to use. And those words and tools are exactly what is needed for the situation even if it doesn’t feel that way.  It is opening you up to what you need to know next.

To facilitate your own healing, listen to the words you use to describe what is going on with your body or your life.  Your words are guidance.  I had a client today describe a body symptom as irritating and annoying. That was telling her that she was annoyed and irritated with some thing that she was not conscious of in the moment.  It was causing her discomfort at about a level of 4 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being awfully painful.

We were able to release that pain by simply getting at what was causing her to be annoyed and giving it a voice.  When the pain level gets a bit higher, it often is in need of deeper techniques to release the pain.
