Who Does the Healing?
The ONLY one who heals is THE PERSON him or herself ... when they are ready. Doctors and healing practitioners are not gods. They do not heal; they only assist in the healing process.
YOU are the only person who can heal. YOU must be the one to allow the healing in. If you do not allow it, it simply will not happen.
In the process of healing, someone may learn more about themselves--who they really are, their strengths and weaknesses, what they want and don't want in life, or to find the beauty within. Sometimes they may learn courage or balance karma. Either way, It is their stuff! Support them. Guide them. Love them. The ONLY thing that heals is LOVE!
Some people are not willing to change. As long as someone is getting something out of their illness, they will not heal. People hang onto illness to get attention ("Oh, my gosh! You're not going to believe what happened now!"); otherwise known as DRAMA. Drama is a babyish, self-centered way to get attention. It is time to STOP THE DRAMA!
Some people hang onto illness because it has become their social life (they talk about their illness, procedures, and meds). If all people talk about is their illness and the meds they are taking, they have become their illness. They have forgotten who they really are.
Believe it or not, there are some people who use their illness so they don't have to work.
And sometimes people get sick because it is the way THEY have chosen to go Home on a soul level. Their work here on earth is done. We are all going to die at some time in some way, and it is ALWAYS the soul's choice when and how to go Home. This is when we have to love them enough to let them go. The greatest love we can give someone is to allow that person to do what they want to do - not what we want them to do. Even if that means going Home. The spirit may shed the physical body, but it never dies. Life will go on--for you and for them.
When is someone ready to heal? When they are ready to change. When they are ready to let go of the pain and suffering they have stored within their body. When they are ready to let go of self-centered ways to get attention. When they are ready to remember who they really are and why they came here. When they are ready to forgive (themselves and others).
Are you ready for change? Are you ready for life to get better? Are you ready to forgive? If you are, then you are ready to heal.
Blessings to you on your journey!
