The previous entry on this began:

What does it mean to be a Healer? The Healer is first a unifier. This can be at a political level or in the psyche.

Let’s explore what this means in the psyche. There’s a simple 5-body model of our makeup:

  1. Energy or etheric body
  2. Physical body
  3. Emotional body
  4. Mental body
  5. Spiritual body

This describes what we are in the holistic and spiritual view. We are this whole, interacting, layered being, with all parts influencing and dependent on each other. The wellbeing of any one body depends on all the others. We want to function well as a whole, addressing all bodies.

It’s key to understand that there isn’t a hierarchy here. Each body is significant. There are natural strengths, likes and dislikes. You’ve probably observed that you may be comfortable with physical activity and sports, or perhaps best when putting your intellect to use, or feel confident dealing with your emotions, or perhaps your spirit is where you find the most joy. All of us have bodies which make sense to us, that we’re good at maintaining and excelling. Then there are those bodies that feel out of reach for us or confusing. Sometimes we even don’t know that a certain body exits.

From the Healer’s viewpoint integration is the answer to knowing ourself as a whole. When we spend all our time on parts we know intimately, parts we can wield well, our other bodies feel left out, like they don’t have keys to our home, or the key doesn’t fit. With no other recourse, these parts draw our attention in unhealthy ways, leading to imbalances and suffering that could’ve been easily avoided with a little care for the whole self.

It’s well known that “heal” simply means to make whole, but it’s worth repeating here. We originate as a whole, then through life experiences we fragment and focus on the fragments. Sometime we entirely forget parts of ourself for years and years. Or we let others and circumstances steal these parts.

When the Healer finally shows up, it acts like a giant magnet, pulling essential parts of yourself back to you, and reinstalling them once again in their rightful place in your being. The Healer also acts as great communicator between your bodies so each knows about the other, what ails or redeems it, what it needs, what it can offer the rest of the team that is you.

With unconditional love the Healer coalesces us to our unified origin.

    I have found that when I trust my body’s intelligence to heal, the process of recovery always occurs. For me it’s the trusting piece that can be challenging to know my first action may not be taking medication; rather to tune in to listening to what my body is asking for!

    Thank you for the awareness and truth of this statement.

    Yes, the key to holistic healing is unconditional love and all its components. We all need to be heard, we all need to know that someone cares and cares enough to listen. We all need compassionate awareness in order to heal our pain-filled fragments.
