Have you ever wondered about healing? There are so many tantric massage healers, healer for individules and healer for couples… and I use the term loosely that can heal anyone of anything, but how exactly do they do that? Well, the simple answer is they don’t. That is a bold statement to make so allow me to clarify, from my own perspective of course.
The body heals itself; pure and simple. It a natural organism that has the power and capacity to either heal itself or destroy itself. If you don’t believe that then clearly you have never had a virus or a cold but you would be robot for that to happen, as we are all susceptible to germs, bacteria and other organisms in our universe. The body has its own unique fighting agents that go on patrol when they discover an invader of any kind. Sometimes it can be an invader that is perfectly natural, such as can be experienced with hay fever, but for some reasons, the body identifies it as an intruder and tries to remove it from the body.
The body is ruled by the mind and the brain. This means the brain has the capacity to produce symptoms of illness, even if the illness is not actually present in the body. Sometimes the truth cannot be separated, which means you can be taking medication for a non-existent condition. In cases such as these and other kinds of conditions, you may find a person has a spontaneous healing. Another person, who you may call a healer if you like the term, can induce this healing. However, all the healer has done is produce conditions that are ripe for the recovery to happen. Of course, it is all very much more complicated in actuality than it sounds, but that is the basic function of a healer. A healer is an enabler too. If we all listened to the messages our bodies are telling us each and every day, we would all have the capacity to be disease-free. But the truth is we don’t. We set ourselves routines, bad habits, poor eating patterns, punishing work schedules and many more challenges and expect our body to just carry on regardless. Of course, for a period of time the body can cope, however, it will soon succumb under the stress of it all. Just imagine all those bad habits as silt deposits that build up in a river. Initially it may be unnoticed, but sooner or later it will cause problems and rectifying the results is harder to do than prevent them in the first place.
Choosing a healing practitioner to facilitate the healing process may be more difficult than you may initially think, as we all have preconceived ideas, whether we realize it or not. In fact, in a first meeting you will make up your mind whether your practitioner can offer you anything, and this deep-seated view will be formed not only according to how you perceive the practitioner, but also to old patterns of recognition. If your memory store in your unconscious mind connects anything in the therapist or their environment to a negative pattern or memory of response then no healing will take place. The problem is you won’t always know this!
