The healing trap

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 10.58.53 amMost of us are born into this world with the message that we are not enough, that we are somehow deficient and that we need a multitude of ‘authority figures’ to complete us. These authority figures come in the form of parents, our extended families’ own unique culture, attitudes and beliefs, the medical profession, religion, the education institution, the prevailing culture at the time, etc. etc. etc. and the list goes on…

I’ve spent the best part of the last 20 years following healing. Healing my mind and my body from some perceived idea and belief that I need this healing. That others also need this healing. That we’re all somehow broken somewhere within, whether it’s from the mind, the body or the spirit or a combination of all three.

I’ve also spent the majority of my life believing that I am indeed deficient in the ability to be whole, healthy and complete without a myriad of “treatments” and “others” to fix me.

I’ve now come to realise that this simply is not true.

Underneath all the layers of disappointment, sadness, anger, depression, unworthiness there’s a spirit that is shining and patiently waiting to be seen and acknowledged and, indeed, who is already whole, healthy and complete. It’s always been there. It is just rarely seen or rarely acknowledged.

I now know that believing we are broken and need fixing is a trap. It’s a trap to keep us down, to keep us from shining, to keep us from being free. And we need to get to the point in our lives where we start questioning who we are and why we’re here. Because for me the idea that I need a whole host of others to fix me now seems ludicrous. I was born perfect and totally connected to my higher truth, my higher self. I was just never told this. I had to find it out for myself. And maybe that’s the point of our journey on planet earth. To find our own way back to that place. In our own time and in our own unique way. With the guidance and facilitation of others, certainly.

But more from a place of “I’m here to remind you of the truth” rather than from a place of “you don’t have the ability or the innate intelligence for your own body or mind to heal, you need me and I’ll decide whether you can or cannot be whole, healthy and complete”.

Don’t believe a word of it! You have everything within you already to feel and be whole, healthy and complete.

I’m not saying it’s easy but it is simple and it’s a practice and a dedication to remembering who you are at your very essence.
