Having worked with people recovering from cancer for 30 years the questions are always, what does that person need to help them to move forward physically, emotionally and spiritually?
In my journey from working exclusively in orthodox medicine to a wider more integrative approach I find myself continually assessing are we giving the person the tools to become their own healer? I have always been aware that my experience and service was sadly lacking in several major elements. Like orthodox medicine complementary medicine can also be rather focused on the metabolics of illness and correcting them.
I would of course direct people towards working on the mind in conjunction with the body and emphasising that it was very important, but I had few skills to really help someone in the way I would want to. There are many great resources online and in books: Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton and more who have resources that really ask the questions that open our minds to the fundamentals of healing and who we are in our relationship with this world.
As the years have gone by, I have come to realise that the importance of this is paramount if we are to be able to heal. Our world challenges us in so many ways with stress, toxicity and the complexity of life, many things to divert our attention from ourselves. The way we have developed medicine challenges us on many levels and frequently reduces our experience of it to one that generates detachment and fear rather than involvement and empowerment.
What is the difference between someone who becomes well and someone who succumbs to illness I have frequently asked? Of course, physical circumstances do influence but I have come to realise it is also the ability of the person to move and grow within their experiences and not be overwhelmed o mind and body. To be able to use transformative practices to view the world from the perspective of our amazing abilities to transform ourselves into what we need to be. To walk through life with a perspective of calm and control, utilising the power of the subconscious that is often submerged by our daily patterns.
That is what I have come to realise is the key, and the missing element from modern medical practices. Again, I find myself wanting in the skills to help people with this, so I share with you my delight at working with two of the most amazing practitioners in this field I have met. Shibu and Teresa are remarkable people who have worked for many years to develop their understanding and skills to be able to communicate to people how they can really change fundamentally and grow no matter their physical circumstances. I am so looking forward to helping them share this with anyone wishing to experience this journey or learn how to help others do the same. We will all be experiencing and learning this together in our workshops and retreats which will be a journey for us all and something very special.
