Psychosomatic Illnesses

It is amazing how many come to me for healing for psychosomatic problems. However, the problem in attempting to “heal” for this is more difficult because there is, in most of these cases, no actual physical problem causing the symptom!

When I suggest to a client that the cause is a psychological problem rather than a physical, it is clear that most people do not understand the meaning of this and automatically assume that I am implying they have a mental affliction and can get quite defensive *note to myself to explain to those in full in future*.

Of course, this is not the case. Psychological symptoms manifest into REAL PHYSICAL symptoms but usually there is absolutely no underlying problem. In these cases I will always suggest hypnotherapy or even acupuncture. I have experienced both these alternative healing methods myself and both are very safe and very relaxing and the best thing is they really do work (please make sure you go to a qualified practitioner though!)

Excerpt from the book Your Body Speaks Your Mind (available at Amazon)
“From headaches and rashes to cancer and other life-threatening diseases, the symptoms and illnesses that manifest in your body are intricately linked to your mind and emotions. The truth is that you are little more than a chemistry set. All your thoughts and feelings get translated into chemicals that fire off throughout your body, altering the chemical composition and behaviour of your cells.”

So … yes it is being controlled in your subconscious, no you are not crazy, yes you experience real physical pain, illness or reactions but no there is usually no underlying cause apart from your subconscious causing the symptoms in the first place.

Apart from emotional triggers such as stress and anxiety, which can lead to chest pains, psoriasis, eczema, stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, and even heart disease; psychosomatic symptoms can also appear after someone has had something “done”. For example, a piercing or maybe even a beauty treatment. These can also be major causes of experiencing real symptoms of an painful affliction, however the CAUSE of affliction itself is not actually physical.

When you undergo any type of adjustment to your body, your conscious mind usually accepts it but sometimes your subconscious doesn’t and this creates a blockage, which is deep rooted in your subconscious and needs to be addressed and worked on.

I touched on an example above with stomach ulcers, eczema or chest pains – these are usually caused by stress, which is an emotional upset. As soon as the stress is alleviated the symptoms usually disappear!

If you are open minded enough to seek holistic healing then open yourself up even more to other alternative therapies, which could help you further. Look into qualified hypnotherapists or acupuncturists in your local area. You have nothing to lose – just your affliction 🙂

Pushing the Limits

Pushing my limits

Everyone is different. I heard of a guy not far from me who offers a similar healing/reiki service and he can only take on board 2 clients in one day.  On average I remotely heal between 2 and 8 people a day… anymore than 8 and I can’t function normally and so I work around the client or I have to say no for that day.  I have only ever done hands-on healing for just 1 person a day so far.

Last week I was called out to give “energy” to 3 women in a space of 2 hours. I had no idea who they were, they were complete strangers and so I had no idea what to focus on.  Should I cleanse their chakras and aura and just see what happens? There is no point giving healing to someone that doesn’t need it.   I was curious, usually people come to me with an existing problem – I wasn’t sure what to do!

Apart from feeling a little like a side show I went along anyway, just for the curiosity to see my own capabilities. The three women were all different and I knew absolutely nothing about them, not even their names.

The first lady was already very spiritual, although I am not sure she realised this herself. I picked up on a problem in her foot, her lower stomach and her throat. After cleansing her chakras I concentrated on these areas.  After the session (which only lasted about 20 mins) I enquired about what I had felt.  She had an operation on her ankle 2 years ago, which had suddenly started becoming painful that same week. She has also had many troubles with her lower regions but she was not sure about her throat.  I told her to have her thyroid checked out, so I am waiting to hear if what I felt was 100 percent correct.

The second lady; I felt a blockage or something coming from her right breast. I also felt she suffers from insomnia and headaches.  I concentrated on these areas and after the session I also enquired about what I picked up on.  She said that she does have trouble sleeping and also gets regular headaches but was not sure about any problem in her right breast.  I asked her to get it checked out anyway but as she “came to” and stood up she mentioned that her right arm is aching as though she has pulled all the muscles in it.  I suddenly realised that I must have released a blockage in her lymph glands under her arm pit, next to her breast, which is why I was picking up on the energy.  I told her to go home and rest and the pain in her arm should disappear within 24 hours.  I heard the next day that it had.

The last lady didn’t seem to be very spiritual or open at all and I couldn’t feel anything wrong with her apart from a major blockage in her throat chakra area.  This indicated that she is going through a stage in her life in which she is supressing her voice.  I concentrated in opening and cleansing this area to help her to voice whatever it is she needs to say.  I found out later that she has a problem with her husband but won’t say anything!

Afterwards, I was absolutely exhausted. I wasn’t grounded properly and I felt as though I could literally fall on the floor and sleep.  I managed to make my way home and sat down for 5 minutes.  5 minutes turned into an hour when my mobile rang and I thought it was my morning alarm clock telling me to wake up!

Never again will I give energy to so many people in so little time.  Although I believe I helped these wonderful  ladies, I am not sure I can do it again so intensely in 2 hours.
