As a healer/ minister I have been blessed to witness many different healing techniques, from many different cultures. All have validity and purpose and just like paths to God, there are as many ways to heal as there are people in the world. Anything spiritual is personal, therefore true healing is about personal resonance and personal belief. What holds power for you? What can you put your faith in?
In 2008 my father was diagnosed with cancer and it was somewhat advanced. At the time I had already been exposed to many forms of holistic healing work as I had completed an apprenticeship, been ordained as a minister and was now offering healing services myself. When my father’s diagnosis came in, I never felt the need to tell or even suggest to him what to do, think or believe. As I aligned myself with Spirit, it was very clear to me that this was between him and God. I knew my role was to support him by supporting whatever he had faith in. My mother is a registered nurse, she and my father have faith in Western Medicine. It is all God. My father weighed his options, discovered what felt good to him and quickly had a surgical procedure. We are nearing 7 years now and my father is still cancer free, and as sassy as ever. Surgery was the best choice for him; it is where his faith and belief lay.
Just like in religion and politics, I see people allowing their differences in beliefs and opinions to divide them every day and in the most fragile of situations. Remember, it is all God. As Gandhi said, “God has no religion.” God also has no political party preference and God does not favor western medicine over eastern medicine. It is all God. Our part is taking the responsibility to seek the Kingdom within, to align with our Highest Self and recognize what we have faith in. What resonates for our personal healing? An important part of healing in any situation be it health, relationship or career, is standing in your personal power. Sometimes you will opt for the surgery or medication and sometimes you won’t, but no one can make that choice for you. That is between you and your Creator. Your job is to gather the information and go within for direction.
