Our April Topic of Conversation continues to explore ‘Does Illness and Disease Offer Healing?’
In western societies, we have tended to believe that illness and disease happen to us, that we are the victims of genetics or perhaps a terrible misfortune. The concept that an accident, an illness or a disease could be offered to us as a healing for our body has been totally foreign.
However, what if in these moments where we are experiencing illness and disease or have an ‘accident’, that we are being offered an opportunity by our Soul to heal?
This ‘stop’ moment may be supporting us to let go of the ideals and beliefs that have held us in a detrimental pattern of behaviour for many years or even lives. Is it possible that rather than the illness being a negative impact upon our body and the ‘beingness of who we are’, instead it is a time of clearing, an opportunity for healing and a chance to look at how we have been living? This approach to the healing process would then offer the space for us to decide if we have truly supported ourselves or if there are changes that could be made that would allow us to live in a more self-loving manner? Being open to the realisation that ‘accidents’, or illness and disease could be a true and deeply loving offering from our Soul is no doubt a challenging consideration for many of us, however it’s one that at the very least needs to be explored.
Two of our articles this month offer a beautiful insight into the author’s experience of healing. Ingrid’s ‘A Deeper Healing Offered Through Illness and Disease’, and Anne’s ‘Cancer: Disease or an Opportunity for Healing?’
We invite you to join us in this vitally important discussion to expose the myths held around illness and disease and to shine the light on the truth of what is really on offer for us to learn from.
