I feel that grace and healing are intrinsically linked.
They merge together to create moments of love — which is the greatest healer.
And, as we know, love can manifest in many different forms such as joy, laughter, or even tears of relief.
Like grace, healing is not something that can be decided upon.
We can decide that we want to be a vehicle for healing or that we would like to receive some healing. But we can’t decide when, where or what form the healing takes. That’s not our role.
It’s not for us to decide what healing is required
Sometimes our desire to receive healing or to give healing to another, coincides with grace and our desire or need is satisfied. But as we can’t truly know what’s needed at a subtle level, it’s important to remain surrendered to the process of healing and trust in grace’s function to provide the rest.
It’s not for any one person to decide exactly what healing is required in another.
It’s difficult to even know what we ourselves need at this level.
We can only identify patterns that reflect common anomalies at the physical, energy or psychic levels.
How we address this, needs to be guided by our true and deep concern for the wellbeing of ourselves or the person we’re assisting. It’s this care that we show towards ourselves and others that opens us to a healing forum, and intuitively, or sometimes psychically, guides us to an appropriate outcome.
Just surrender to the process
Surrender in the process of healing allows power and grace to enter the experience.
Through the act of invocation, we align with grace and become its instrument. Our free will offers us the choice of requesting assistance from spirit. And it’s my experience that spirit always responds.
Surrendering the outcome of the session into the hands of spirit is also important to the healing process.
Removing any self-imposed ideas, either ours or those of the recipient, allows a space for grace, and for the powerful and knowledgeable forces that be, to enter. They know exactly what’s needed.
Surrender also removes any thoughts from our minds of what we should be doing, or what we feel might be expected of us. These thoughts could potentially limit what is actually possible.
Take guidance from spirit
In the healing sessions I conduct in my practice I experience spirit and grace through my surrender.
I keep in my awareness the need to listen to guidance from spirit, whilst at the same time losing myself to what I’m feeling as I work.
What I’m feeling, in fact, is often spirit pulling me into the rhythm of energy as it softly breaths and pulses its own language.
I easily lose myself to this feeling.
Sinking deeper into the experience, the person in my care often drifts into conscious sleep where deep and true healing can, and often does, occur.
This altered state of consciousness is not a state I can access without the intent of connecting with spirit — mine, the higher spiritual forces, or the spirit of the person I’m aiding.
Of course not every experience unfolds this way, some sessions are very verbal. In these sessions the energy exchanged takes the form of words, in a transmission of information, necessary for the recipients growth or understanding.
Neither one more powerful or meaningful than the other.
Both energy filled and wonderful experiences. I give thanks for their presence in my life.
Step back and healing is made possible
There are many wonderful approaches to healing and all of them have a place in the spectrum of choice available to each and every one of us.
For me, surrender is the secret power of success in my work and in my life. It removes from me the great weight of responsibility of feeling that I have to know all the answers.
I simply need to listen.
And be a willing instrument for grace and healing. If I simply step back, the Angels and the Holy Spirit do the rest.
So if you would like to act as an instrument for healing, I would like to offer you this blessing:
May you trust fully in the wisdom of Spirit
And may healing be the outcome.
With all my love
