A friend recently confided that for the last few months he had been feeling unwell. He couldn’t sleep at night, and as a result was sluggish and irritable during the day. A chronic upset stomach and severe heartburn had him worried that there was something wrong – but doctors were unable to pinpoint any specific medical problem.
“This has been going on for months!” he exclaimed. “I’m up all night, and it takes a ton of coffee to get me through the work day – my stomach is always in knots. I’m lightheaded and dizzy, and I can’t focus.”
I listened to his concerns, then asked him if it was okay if I tuned into his energy field. I quickly detected that there wasn’t anything physically wrong that a good night’s sleep and a whole lot less caffeine couldn’t cure. As I had suspected from the very start, the source of his problem was much deeper.
My friend’s concern about the current political climate was showing up in emotional and physical symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, poor digestion and acid reflux. He felt powerless to do anything about the increase in violence, intolerance and abuse of the planet that he was bombarded with via the news and social media.
At the core of his problem was the fact that he was scarred from a childhood where two alcoholic parents and an angry and hostile older brother had created an environment of instability and chaos. As an adult, he had built a serene and orderly life for himself and his family – but now fear of events beyond his control was impacting his physical, mental and spiritual health.
Fortunately, there was nothing wrong with him that a good soul-healing wouldn’t fix.
I worked with him energetically to help identify and release the repressed pain and trauma of his youth, allowing him to heal. I also gave him some tools so that he would be able to face his fear over current events – which would be more manageable now that the underlying issue had been addressed.
Shortly after, he let me know that he was sleeping better and his physical symptoms had evaporated. I begged him to let me share his story because it perfectly illustrates how old feelings and emotions become trapped in your body, and can be triggered by current events.
I’m sure that many of you are feeling the effects of old trauma – physical, mentally or emotionally – and you may not even know it.
Here are four signs that your Soul is in need of some deep healing:
– You have a persistent illness that persists – no matter how many doctors you visit and how many remedies you try.
– You feel like you’re on a conveyer belt – always running but never reaching your goals.
– You’re disconnected and detached, like you are sleepwalking through life – physically and mentally.
– You have the nagging feeling that there’s something important that needs to be addressed.
It’s not enough to heal your symptoms when the source of what is troubling you is Soul based. True healing of the spirit, comes from within – even mental help professionals can’t fully heal their patients unless the patient is willing to face and resolve their fears, their emotions and their past.
