I remember years ago when I had an appointment with a healer and the healer phoned me to cancel due to illness - I was SO surprised as in those days I felt that healers should NOT get sick! I've since realised however, that we are all humans and that if we do not listen to our emotions or our bodies then we can become sick or dis-eased. I very seldom get ill but was struck down by chronic bronchitis about 10 days ago. My illness was due to my immune system being low as I hadn't been sleeping properly (my son had been waking me up every night for a couple of weeks due to fear of the dark) and I was processing some very deeply held grief (my friend was spending time with her aunt who was dying and did die and it brought back many of the memories of when my middle sister was dying and died in 2006 at the age of 38). So even though I'm a healer and know what makes me ill and I was well aware of what was going on with my emotions I still got sick. Part of me felt frustrated that I was ill as I had a lot of work to do (luckily no clients as it was over the weekend) but I had to just "go with the flow" and ended up in bed for 2 days! I mixed up a combination of Australian Bush Flower Essences (Bush Fuchsia, Bush Iris, Crowea, Pink Mulla Mulla, Red Suva Frangipani & Sturt Desert Pea) to help me and by Tuesday last week was feeling a great deal better.
What I want to point out here is that we are all humans and that at some level we all determine and mould our lives, however there are times when things happen that feel beyond our control and at these times we need to relax into the process (go with the flow) rather than fight it, ask for help from those around us and picture ourselves well and healthy again. Our minds and bodies are extremely complex and powerful - thoughts become energy and our bodies work hard and often very quickly to help us heal.
