Advanced States of Healing
by Marcus Daniels
(This article is a discussion of the theories
and principles of advanced states of healing and how to access them.)
Over the past 15 years, I have treated a variety of
clients. A brief case study of two of them illustrates the process of advanced
states of healing. Three years ago, a woman came to me who had been
trying for a year to get pregnant without success. In the first session,
massage and energy work was done around her pubic bone and inner pelvis.
In the second session, while we were talking, I saw in her energy field
a word pattern connected to an old memory: "Mommy doesn't love me because
I'm a bad girl."
I asked her if she felt safe enough to try an experiment.
She agreed. She was instructed to place her hand on her jeans, over her
vagina. In one ear I whispered, "You're a good girl", and then in her other
ear, "You're a bad girl." This continued for 20 minutes, after which she
began to have a release, expressing her anger and sadness. She was re-experiencing
a time when her mother had berated her for having sex at too young an age.
We finished the session. That week she became pregnant, and nine months
later she gave birth. The emotion of guilt had been blocking her from becoming
pregnant. As she relived the experience, she released the guilt,
and thus the blockage. During a class session, a man began to experience
physical pain. He was holding onto fear and resistance. As he became willing
to love the pain and the resistance, he felt like his head was going to
explode. As the session progressed, he began to have the memory of his
actual birth, and the experience of being a forceps delivery. At this exact
moment, the forceps marks appeared on his skull. (This is physical imprinting
of a repressed memory). Once this memory was fully realized, he immediately
moved into an experience from high school. He was playing baseball,
slid into third base, and broke his ankle. As he relived the memory with
full feeling, he actually experienced the shock and numbness of the broken
bone. His ankle then re-cracked into a new position within this session,
releasing the trauma and gaining greater mobility of the joint. This case
illustrates how the activation of one suppressed memory can trigger off
Let's begin by stating the obvious. We live in a physical
body, and so it is the body that is the main vehicle or key to accessing
all levels of healing. There are many other wonderful vehicles with
which to heal, but until they are integrated with the body, they
will not give rise to our greatest potential as human beings. Our body
is a library that stores all the records of our relationship with everything:
emotions, thought patterns, memories, energy Systems etc. The phrase coined
for this library of records is Cellular Memory (C.M.).
The most important relationship that can he accessed
through CM is one's connection to the spirit. As we make a physical connection
with spirit, we come in contact with the most powerful healing force of
all - unconditional love. This connection happens by feeling. Inside
our being is the full spectrum of emotions, from grief and anger, to boredom
to joy - from numb unconsciousness to the enthusiasm of love. As life experiences
give rise to an emotional state, a very interesting process occurs. We
are actually given the choice to feel or not to feel, and how much to feel
as well. The more we choose to feel, whatever the emotion is, the more
we are actually feeling with love. This is because universal law dictates
we cannot feel anything without first feeling love. So as one resists the
feeling of the particular emotion that is present, one is also resisting
love, and moving into unconsciousness. This resistance causes a person
to shut down the heart and body, which are the sensory organs for feeling,
and move into the intellectual/rational being.
Once in the intellect, we are no longer purely feeling.
We only think we are feeling. This is where all our emotions get looped
into thought patterns. A traumatic story can be retold a hundred
times, with the teller trying to work through the pain and reaction, but
not until this experience is truly felt in the present moment can there
be true healing and freedom from the negative pattern.
What does being in the moment mean? As we go through
a moment of experience in total awareness, we are allowing whatever will
be to exist. If we are looking for something to happen, or trying to make
something happen, we are not in the moment. If in the moment, for example,
angels arise and we attach judgment to this, we have knocked ourselves
out of the moment. Fear will also shut us out of being in the moment. Being
able to embrace any feeling, without fear, judgment or guilt, will open
the gate to both healing and the growth of consciousness.
Let us explore the dynamics of fear and its block to
healing and consciousness. Fear is a state of mind that exists when we
cannot feel our love. Fear exists in every suppression of an emotion, memory
and thought pattern. In order to feel an old anger pattern; we must embrace
the fear of feeling angry. Once we open ourselves to feel this fear, it
means that unconditional love is present, and healing is activated.
By activating the suppressed feelings, memories and
thought patterns that are locked in the unconscious mind and body, we are
bringing the unconscious to conscious-ness. Through the process of truly
feeling in the moment, we are becoming conscious. The healing equation
can be said to be summarized as: consciousness equals feeling, and feeling
equals love. The highest state of consciousness is the highest state of
feeling pure, unconditional love. As consciousness grows, the reactive
patterns that are held in the physical body diffuse. The continuing progression
of reactive patterning becomes disease. Therefore, in the highest state
of consciousness, disease cannot exist.
As we activate higher states of healing, our bodies
will want to go unconscious. This unconsciousness can take the form of
physical and mental numbness or actually going asleep. At this point, we
must take charge and demand from ourselves to stay in the present. By embracing
our unconscious patterns and staying committed to our love/feeling process,
all suppressed feelings, memories and thought patterns will come
to the surface.
With the surfacing of these feelings in the therapeutic
process often comes a sense of physical heat. This heat melts the holding
patterns in both the physical and emotional bodies. There is a law of healing,
which states that as tension goes through a block, it produces heat. This
is the heat of unconditional love dissolving the blocks that hold it back.
PAST AND FUTURE FEAR
The only reason the past can repeat itself is because
there is a part of its experience that has not been fully felt - without
reaction or judgment. As we work through past traumas and lovingly embrace
the feelings that arise in the present experience, we can forgive ourselves
and those involved with the experience. This full feeling memory, both
psychically and physiologically, will open the channel to lose the reactive
energy charge. When this charge becomes neutral, this part of life can
be fully assimilated, bringing us back into one being.
The anticipation of the future brings its own unique
set of circumstances. The fear of the future inhibits an individual's
ability to let go and enter an advanced healing state. There are several
core fears, or sub fears, that are encoded into our total make-up as human
beings. One is the fear of death. This may also be understood as a death
of the ego and our identity with the world. Even though an individual may
not have a conscious thought about fearing death, this fear exists as a
deep feeling, or conditioning pattern.
The activation of this dying process in therapy in
itself is a type of rite of passage to feel our spiritual/divine presence.
Some people have a fear of becoming crazy when they
start to let go. This fear is worse than the fear of dying,
because it means we are stuck in limbo, unable to escape the craziness
even through death. The third most common sub-fear is the fear of exploding
into a violent rage - even of murdering - because the dark side of our
personality no longer has boundaries.
Once we can move into the many spaces of fear with
safety and love, we can surrender to the inner healing power of the divine.
As we expand into the light, we also expand into the darkness. The more
light there is, the more darkness there is. Any fear is ultimately the
fear of letting go into these many aspects of oneself. This very powerful,
and multi-layered, mechanism called fear resides in every pain and contraction
of the body.
When an individual becomes stuck in his/her pain, any
healing technique that uses awareness touch will activate the love and
safety necessary to surrender deeper. Within healing modalities, to touch
is to love. This process will also activate the surfacing of any suppressed
experience, and so again we have the opportunity to move into a higher
state of healing.
As we live in the physical body, it is the body itself
that is the key to all levels of healing. By working with the physical
body, we can access every process necessary to bring about advanced states
of healing. . .
