The thing is that we are all in the grips of a pan-cultural limiting belief--including doctors. And since doctors are given a very left brained , intellectually, rationally oriented education, the part of them that could have led them and medical science to our true healing powers has, basically, been educated out of them. So they cast about within the narrow confines of the intellect or ego-mind...for an answer that is not in that arena at all!
Lester Levenson, originator of The Sedona Method found this out for himself. He was a brilliant man with several graduate degrees. But had become extremely unhappy and ill. The doctors gave him 2 weeks to live. Facing that he began to explore beyond his intellectual/rational mind and by 3 months later he had found all of the answers within--which is where I found them as well. He healed fully--not only his body, but his relationships and his understanding of money. He had "worked hard and amassed a fortune" but then discovered the money hadn't been coming from his hard work or genius, but from his expectation. He simplified his expectation of how money could come to him and became so wealthy he could give it all away--now knowing how he could manifest whatever he desired, very quickly. He went on to live another 40 years--in excellent health and happiness.
Unfortunately most people who are sick or who are caring for a loved one who is sick are functioning within the same limitations Lester faced at first--a belief that healing must come from some outside source. It is nobody's fault that they do not understand the enormous power within themselves. It's been educated out of them. (We all had it as babies).
It is just that we are only beginning to emerge from "The Dark Ages," of healing. Our spiritual evolution is calling us to move into the light, but it can only invite. God only invites. God does not tell us what to do. God has given us the great gift of the freedom to use our consciousness however we wish. And basically we are constantly faced with a choice of using our small mind or our large mind from the moment we awaken in the morning til we fall asleep at night. Unfortunately--or, since everything is actually perfect, fortunately--we are operating in the dark. The answer is there, but we must literally FEEL around for it.
I was listening to an audio book last evening called Heaven is Real by Todd Burpo. And I saw this problem strung out among all of the incidents which are recorded in the book. The problem is that we are taught to THINK rather than to FEEL.
In the true story, the Rev. Burpo, his wife and two children have been having a very bad time of it, but seemingly having come to the end of a long string of Job-like challenges, they take a road trip to celebrate. By the way, those Job-like challenges could have led the family to pre-knowledge that worse was coming if they did not attend to the messages they were getting and do something about it.
Specifically the father had broken his leg and then had gotten breast cancer. Had he been educated to keep his right brain/female mind --the mind he was born with--functioning he could have seen that the broken leg was a message likely about not standing up for himself. And later the breast cancer could have suggested that he was nurturing others more than his inner child was happy with. Pastors are supposed to be selfless in our silly society. No one is. We are all meant to put ourselves first in an enlightened-loving way. But I suspect he did not know that. And his ignoring it was scaring the heck out of his inner child. When we don't stand up for ourselves and put our own needs first it leaves a deep, child like part of ourselves feeling very insecure.
So then in that family gestalt, the youngest child, Colton agreed on some higher level, to be the one who expressed the problem for the family in the next round of messages. He got appendicitis--which is a physical representation of extreme fear. He was showing his Dad that man's fears, on his own child level. By the way, we do not out-grow childish ways--and are not meant to. Childhood is not left behind. It remains as our foundation and as such needs constant vigilant attention. "Do I feel happy in my child-self?" we need to ask ourselves frequently. But they did know about this.
So, they encountered yet another staggering challenge in the form of the near-death of their 4 year old child Colton. He develops appendicitis but the doctors and medical technicians consistently misdiagnose the child's problem and he becomes inexorably worse until he is on the brink of dying. The symbolism of the "trusted doctors" being untrustworthy, I interpret as a symbol of both the father's and the doctors' (and likely the wife's too) over reliance on the rational/intellectual mind. Our whole culture does this, but many are moving beyond this--as we are all meant and all will eventually. The intellect is NOT reliable by itself. It overestimates its own intelligence and it eschews the far greater intelligence of the intuitive, super-rational mind. They are meant to work together with the intuitive mind leading the way.
So Colton's parents have been extremely compliant with the doctors, technicians and hospital staff--trusting that they all know more than themselves. BIG MISTAKE.
The Vesica Piscis symbol tells us --ALL IS WITHIN. Their authority lay within themselves--most especially within the child himself.
At the very beginning they told the doctor, and continued to mention, that they believed it was appendicitis. However, the doctors all insisted that their tests were reliable and that they did not point to appendicitis. So they did not treat him for that...and he got sicker.
The docotors' rational minds were saying "it's not appendicitis" and the parents' intuitive minds were telling them " it IS appendicitis." And the latter were correct. The problem was that for 2 weeks they vetoed the information they were receiving from the right brain/intuitive mind and allowed the intellect/left brain remain dominant--both in themselves and in the doctors.
So it could have ended tragically. Colton's father, as a pastor, had seen many people die. He saw death in the face of his extremely emaciated, hollow-eyed, limp child, who had not eaten for 2 weeks and who had been throwing up constantly.
When he allowed that in fully he finally broke emotionally. He raged at God and with that emotional movement his God-Self was able to reach his soul-personality self and kick him into action.
He removed his son from that hospital, took him to another, where he was immediately diagnosed correctly and operated on. He did recover fully.
Intuition is correct 100% of the time, but being able to tell the difference between an intuitive thought and an intellectual "good idea" is a subtle art. It can and will be learned. But it is a process, albeit an inevitable one for all who wish to "go home."
As the human race grows it can choose to descend into yet more darkness. God will allow more suffering if people choose that. But truly the way to end suffering is to turn inward. Meditate on the Vesica Piscis symbol and it will help you to do this.
We need to stop projecting power and responsibility out onto others--especially doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies. We have the power to keep healthy and to never need any of the above. I do--at this point however--believe that if we have created things like ruptured appendices, or heart failure, or severe wounds that we should avail ourselves of the emergency measures that allopathic medicine offers.
But in conjunction with that, in order to bring about healing as quickly as possible we should be turning within and asking ourselves, "how did I create this reality? What is the message behind this? What misalignment have I created between my intellectual beliefs and what is really true?" The Great Mother is Truth --both emotional and factual--and as extensions of her we want to telling ourselves and others the Truth as often as we can.
Emotional truth is the most important Truth. For our emotions are messages from our God-Center within. If we are experiencing negative emotions around something, we would be wise to move away from whatever we are feeling negative about. If we are feeling positive emotions about something, we are safest to move toward it.
These emotions are often in conflict with seeming "rational truth" and "practicality" or so-called fact, and "what is seemingly real." Reality is only a thought form we have built up by focusing on something alone or together with others. All negative events and things are thought forms we have miscreated by being out of alignment with Truth. So to focus on them and fight them is only to add energy to that false thought form. It is not real. WE change our reality by following our positive emotions and staying focused on the good things we want. We create feelings and vibrations first that later become events and things.
And I am not talking about pasting "happy faces" on everything. We must tell ourselves the Truth. If we are feeling badly, we must allow those feelings. We must face and feel them. And when we do, then an inner psycho-spiritual movement is set up. We automatically begin to move in the direction of healing and all that is happier. We can consciously assist that process by using our will power to avoid thinking the same old negative beliefs, and by asserting our will power to find some belief or observation that feels even slightly better. These are just choices and choices are powerful. We are here to make choices.
Slowly we can work our way out of negative thought patterns to the wholly positive ones that are Truth.
So God does not want us to suffer. When we find ourselves suffering--even a little--we can know that we have gone off the rails somewhere; that we are now out of alignment with The Divine at the center of our being--that lovely place with the beautifully feminine feel to it. (By the way--most cultures refer to the soul as "she").
As mentioned above, in the book Heaven is Real, the author, Rev. Todd Burpo relates that eventually both he and his wife reached emotional breaking points. After weeks of struggling to trust the doctors and of stuffing their doubts and anger about the fact that Colton was only getting worse and was now close to death, they both cracked--she in tears, he in rage. Both are good.
And with that cracking--that allowing of emotional authenticity --they suddenly were able to move forward and to make a decision to remove Colton from the hospital where he had not been helped and to move him to another where he was quickly diagnosed as having a ruptured appendix. He was operated on and eventually all the toxins were removed from his body and he is now a normal 15 year old (in 2014).
Again, as I mentioned earlier, the family, in my estimation, was getting many strong messages prior to Colton's nearly dying, that indicated they were out of alignment with emotional and spiritual Truth. Religion is hard on ministers and priests. They are expected to be Christ-like or God-like without having gone through everything He went through to get there organically. They attempt to put on a superficial imitation of Him and when they cannot (because they have not gone through all of the steps) they end up often times being quite inauthentic. They stuff natural feelings, or hide them. They avoid the actions that would have flowed naturally from those judged and rejected feelings, and in doing so sometimes end up doing great harm to themselves and others.
We are not perfect. But we are perfectly imperfect. The Great Mother wants desperately for us to feel Her unconditional love for us--and to have it for ourselves--no matter what we have done "wrong." At the same time She offers constant guidance away from hurtful beliefs and actions and towards positive ones. But she does not judge us.
Many pastors are quite judgmental, overtly towards themselves and sometimes covertly towards others--especially their own family. Oftentimes there is a son who acts out all that the pastor-father is repressing. Colton's sister says of him, "He may have died and gone to heaven, but he's no angel." The father is repressing his feelings and the actions they would lead to naturally because he judges them to be bad or wrong or un-Christian. And so the son acts it out for him. The father judges his misbehavior or fails to understand its origin and so tries to fix the son. But the only fix is within himself. Healing comes from unconditional acceptance of all thoughts and beliefs--no matter how "sinful" some might think them. It comes from a slow working away to the foundations of those thoughts, beliefs and feelings until one finds the gem of Truth--a positive thing that The Great Mother wants you to have!
Many religions have great laundry lists of "sins," most of which are false.
There is only one sin, in Truth, that I have discovered so far. It is that:
Violence against the self or others, while God allows it, is at the same time strongly discouraged. And one of the most violent things one can do to oneself or others is to not allow their emotional honesty. For it cuts them off from God.
So somehow the family--in all their well-meaning efforts--were out of touch with what God really wanted for them--and so they suffered for their rejection and resistance by creating broken legs, breast cancer, gall stones etc. all in the year prior to Colton's near death experience. And with that experience I think they must have had some deep inner shifts in their beliefs, for things got better.
Todd began working on the book. They perhaps deepened their trust in God to take care of them. And Colton had his precious experience of heaven as well as a first hand understanding that he has an eternal soul that is separate from the body and which does survive death. We all do. I am sure there were others. Breast cancer suggests nurturing others before the self and harboring hidden resentments about it. Broken legs suggest not moving in a new direction one is being called to or not standing up for one's self. Gall stones suggests that one might be living in a galling situation that one is trying to accept, but without allowing for the certainty that improvement is possible and desirable.
In the book, Todd Burpo relates his son's NDE's including his consciousness leaving his body and going to heaven where he received much comfort and assistance. He also tells about how Colton was able to move around the hospital in his out-of-body-state and to make observations that were later verified.
This brings me back again to the most important thing to know, and the reason why the Vesica Piscis Method works. We are all pure consciousness--now and always. We put on physical bodies for the major purpose of giving ourselves conscious feed back about the condition of our consciousness...of our the mental/emotional state of our soul personality selves (SPS).
If our SPS is a little out of alignment with our God Center Self (GCS) then we get a hang nail or a stubbed toe or something else minor. If we are a lot out of alignment we get very sick. Or we have a bad "accident."
So, it is never enough to just heal the cancer with this method. One must continue to use the basic method to heal oneself of everything that arises--including minor things. Learn to nip things in the bud. Because negative or limiting beliefs are formed by repeatedly thinking an out-of-alignment-thought. There will always be some negative sign when we first start to go off the rails. But I will expand on that in another post.
A wise friend of mine noticed that she was often stumbling as she walked down the sidewalks of her city. She began to pay attention to what thoughts she had been thinking just before her misstep and realized that she was always thinking some critical thought about someone just before it. When she started to make an effort to consciously allow her feelings about the person... and to take them as a reflection of how she was feeling about herself, and then to allow more positive feelings about herself and others...she stopped stumbling so often.
We are here to expand. Expansion is always positive. It always feels good. When we diminish ourselves by espousing limiting or negative beliefs we literally shrink, spiritually.
So, most doctors do the best they can within the limitations of their understanding. Unfortunately medical schools not only teach a purely superficial, physical, intellectual approach to healing (one that never works) [but more on that later] and they also oftentimes teach their students a great arrogance and authority along with their science. They teach very little about respect for their clients; and nothing about eliciting their clients' own knowledge of their bodies and their powers of self-healing power.
But we are not victims. We are just here to learn to not revere the outside--outside authorities or so-called " reality." We are here to learn to stop projecting our own power, responsibility, beauty, wisdom, knowledge and authority out onto others. We are here to learn to turn inward and trust our own innate knowingness.
We create our own reality. We build it up like a house, brick by brick and then it is suddenly done and we move in. We live in it. But if it is not a happy home we can repair it, or tear it down, or just move altogether. A home that has cancer in it can be remodeled. Keep the best, the positive, and eschew the rest. Allowing all feelings is positive.
Keep working on your home by creating beautiful comfortable renovations and additions (new positive beliefs) that feel God-Centered. As we do this we get healthier and healthier in every way.
