Seek and ye shall find!
I am reading, The Root of All Healing, by Misa Hopkins, an American metaphysical healer who overcame MS. It’s an excellent book [on which I will do a full review when I’m finished reading], very much aligned with my own approach to healing.
If we are stuck in a health condition, she reminds us to ask questions. Asking questions has a way of stimulating our inner intuition, thus providing us with important insights.
The author recommends open-ended questions, questions not asking for a yes or no answer. They can be directly related to your health condition or more general in nature.
It inspired me to ask two questions. The first question is, “what is missing from my life presently, that has been missing all my life?” The answer came to me immediately … acknowledgement!
The second question I asked was, “what need is being fulfilled by me continuing to experience this neurological condition?” Again, the answer came rather quickly … sympathy and acknowledgement!
These answers make perfect sense to me. First, I grew up in a family where there was absolutely no sympathy when you were having a tough time [you were more likely to be scolded] and very little if any, acknowledgement [you were more likely to be criticized]. Second, and I admit this both sheepishly and comically, I quite often find myself doing something, such as shoveling the driveway or stacking firewood, having a difficult time, stumbling around and losing my balance, imagining people feeling sorry for me and marvelling at what I am going through.
In order to let go of this need for sympathy and acknowledgement, I am doing two things: first, I’m being compassionate towards myself. I’m reminding myself that I developed this need at a time in my life when I was spiritually unconscious, didn’t feel loved and was unaware of the belief I was creating.
Second, every day, I am reciting my healing mantra:
Thank you Spirit and thank you higher self for severing and dissolving the synapses and neural pathways, neutralizing the energetic frequency, healing and releasing from my body and my being, all the fear, anger and detrimental thoughts and beliefs, and all of the shame, grief, guilt, resentment, bitterness and unresolved emotional energy that are at the root of my need for sympathy and acknowledgement, and I thank you for this healing and I thank you for increasing the effectiveness of this healing by 100 times or more! Hallelujah!
At the root of all health conditions, are in part, unmet needs and detrimental beliefs. Asking questions is an effective way to unearth these needs and beliefs.
