Healing Self Through Spirit Journey: Lessons Learned

Crying is an adventure in release.

Rejection begets rejection — instead embrace.

Only in a full body bow does one regain. Surrender (yourself). Honor (another). Humbleness (become). Each is interchangeable.

A broken body (ghost of) may over lap the physical. Clean away the broken body and keep ill health (in spirit) away from the physical.

A whole spirit body reflects a whole physical.

At the heart of human interaction remains not communication but pain. Pain is inflicted upon us, pain we inflict on others, and pain we inflict upon ourselves; this remains what we transfer, what we pass back and forth like disease. However, the pain we both give and take is not in aid of speaking to another, although some would argue its ‘a cry for help’. It is a cry for help, but it is a cry for help to ourselves. We must, first, before any heartfelt interaction, have full respectful communication with ourselves. If we have learned not to hurt the self which remains so close always we will not attempt to hurt it through another, in social interaction. This is the heart of the matter, the center, the soul. To relate to others on any level, but especially familial, platonic, and romantic, we must have learned how to have healed. Self healing is all healing. A doctor or medicine man or woman or an healer of any kind only does the healing at your behest, your need, your asking. In essence you heal yourself. The pain is a manifestation of your asking. You request the healing. And you do the healing. A doctor or healer only guides the physical or emotional or mental or spiritual body into the state of natural health which is its default. This ill body must do the healing itself, out of want and will. The doctor may dole out medicine, use energy, perfom a miracle but the healing in itself is not miracle, it is practical. It remains all you are capable of being, at any given time, did you only know you could be. The doctor is mere guide, just as the spirit animal you meet on a journey is mere guide, just as an emotion or sensation is mere guide. Therefore delve, I encourage you, into the deepest pain filled recesses of your psyche. Find all the hurt bodies there. Heal and release that pain. Once you have let it go, there goes the need to hurt others, intentionally or not. Then you find the relationships you hold near you will bring you only the beauty and connection you enjoy and the arguments and little pains  which keep you so separate will be far away.

How I achieved these results and lessons.

Using a Native American drumming mp3 I took myself into a mediation, a spirit journey. It is called entering the big dream. I went into the big dream already having asked what I need to learn from the spirits. What I needed to do. Briefly I will summarize: I wrote down on paper all the names of people I have had a relationship with that affected me strongly in my life. I then proceeded to use one word descriptions and make a list below each name. Then when the whole thing was finished I tallied the words which repeated ending in five. This was to be an exorcise to heal what I need within myself to allow the kinds of relationships I want in my life. I have noticed a pattern where I disallow myself the very things I say I want from my relationships. Seeing on paper all the reoccurring things which I do ‘allow’ all subconsciously was eye opening. So, for this journey, I went into it asking for help with these specific problems in aid of allowing the relationships I want in my life.

Also a thing to note from a previous mediation done years ago I am aware my lesson in this lifetime is ‘Allowance’ as opposed to ‘Disallowance’. That conclusion was also found from a similar exercise.

Upon entering the big dream I found the cave where I would meet my spirit guide. In journeying imagination is a stepping stone into the spirit world, the best way to jump, so to speak. You begin with detailed imagining of a cave in the ground you must visualize and enter. You must completely immerse yourself in five sensory details  in the imagining. Then, when the spirit guides shows, allow its form to take whatever is closest to an animal you can bring to mind. Sometimes the spirit guide takes on an elemental form. The best way to interpret the spirits form, I’ve found, is through animal. For me, always these journeys are healing and accurate to the need.

It is not another’s job to heal you; just as it is not another’s job to not hurt you. Both responsibilities belong to you. Even your psychiatrist cannot heal all the hurts which lie in you. In fact I guarantee they cannot heal you at all. They can only show you the path towards wellness, it is all any doctor can do . Weather it is a spiritual journey or a physical one, it is always in your power to heal. All you must do to begin is ask.

Enjoy the Journey
