A Healing Versus a Cure

While often used interchangeably, there is a difference between a healing and a cure. A healing is a return to wholeness. A cure is the elimination or relief of a condition or disease. You can actually experience a profound healing, without first experiencing a cure of whatever condition you are currently going through.

Your soul is always seeking a return to the wholeness and oneness of its perfection.

All of your circumstances, even (especially) those that seem to bring you to your knees in frustration, desperation or pain, are geared towards healing; they are geared towards creating an opening within you to experience a sense of wholeness into, and a remembering of, your innate divine nature.

Your opportunity (and challenge) is to then recognize and acknowledge that you can exist with a condition that has not (yet) been cured, and still receive a healing from it… and that its existence is not a punishment by the universe, or a sign that you are doing something wrong.

Now this does not negate how difficult it can be when you are in the midst of a physical, mental or emotional challenge or problem. Life is sometimes tricky and having a Pollyanna view of life that tells you to smile through your struggles, or pretend that all is well, simply doesn’t work. Instead feel it all. Experience it all. Be in your frustration, your pain, your anger and your fear, with openness and honesty.

Healing is invited in when you remove the judgement that there is something wrong with what you are going through and that you must first experience a cure or elimination of your problem(s) before you can be happy, or move forward in life, or feel worthy of more. While your mind may choose to judge your experiences as good or bad, right or wrong, it is the desire to simply be in whatever you are going through, that will open your heart and allow an expansion into the wholeness of your true and authentic nature.

All of your experiences are a sacred invitation to return to the source of your True Nature. You are constantly being invited to break down barriers, open your heart and dance with the divine unfolding of the circumstances within your life.

Wherever you have a block or limitation, the Universe will bring something into your awareness to help you resolve it. While you may not understand it in the moment, there is a divine unfolding of whatever is needed to awaken you to your potential. The beautiful thing is that it is  beyond anything that you may know, think or be able to understand with your logical mind, and will unfold with spiritual precision and timing.

You are a unique expression of your divine light, inner wisdom and outer experience, all coming together to awaken you to deeper levels of insights, gifts, awareness and opportunities. So be gentle with yourself, honest with what you are feeling and open to the divine healing power that can be brought to any situation.


Releasing Resentments

What if you saw those people who annoyed or
challenged you as messengers from the universe sent
to show you something in you in need of attention, healing
or growth … would you look at them differently?

Do you feel that you need others to change so that you can be happy?  Are these familiar thoughts (or comments) for you – “if only they would do this … or not do that … or be more like this, then everything would be better”?

Now here’s the interesting thing … when someone else’s behavior is a challenge for you, it’s often because they are pushing against an inner fear or insecurity that you hold. You want them to change so you can feel better … so that you can feel some relief from the emotional discomfort you are currently feeling. The challenge is that this is just a temporary fix. If you don’t deal with the actual issue, which is your internal wound, then someone or something else will come along to push against it.

Make Friends with Your Fear

Do you know the purpose of fear in your life?

To clarify, I am not taking about caution. Caution is an intuitive message intended to guide you, act as a warning, or keep you safe. A message of caution will tell you to do something … or to not do something – for example, “do this”, “this isn’t the right thing for you”, “be on guard”, “run”, etc. These messages should be listened to.

Now, fear is different. With fear you feel distressed, nervous or worried, but often you’re not quite sure why. It shows up when you’re about to do something new or different, and leaves you feeling that something might be wrong … or more so, you might be wrong.
