Helpful Concepts & Definitions
to help understand the healing process
Healing is to become whole. Healing is mainly the dissolving of unresolved issues from your past. This removes the cause of the problem. (Michael Glicker)
“Wholeness is not evoked by the search for one-shot solutions.
The search for specialized answers to complex situations yields very little benefit.
A never-ending pursuit of our greater wholeness is the answer to ascending the levels of your life.
The actuality of healings is always a miracle that happens of a higher level through the restoration of wholeness no matter what the problem.
Healing always comes from a higher level.” (*)
(*) The five sentences above are from the book Love Without End by Glenda Green and were given to her by Jesus.
Treatment can be almost anything that restores harmony when you need it.
Treatment can be essential oils, flower essences, vitamins, minerals, massage therapy, consultation, doing things we like, being with others, journaling, reading, and partnering with a healer.
What is the difference between treatment and healing?
Treatment is intended to give release from discomfort the person is experiencing. It is about reducing or removing symptoms.
Allopathy (which is the main type of healthcare in the US) is about changing symptoms to an opposite of what they are. Allopathic means change to the opposite.
So, treatment is intended to alter symptoms or remove them, without removing the cause of the symptoms. However, treatment can make it easier for us to heal.
Healing is about dissolving the cause of the disease, which is mainly the dissolving of issues from our past that create symptoms. The intention of healing is to heal the cause of the client’s problems, which means remove it.
The result of real healing is greater wholeness.
Real healing includes personal growth.
Basically, real healing is the dissolving of an unresolved issue from our past. A result of this is the regaining a part of ourselves that has not been available to us. This increases our wholeness.
A lack of wholeness is responsible for many addictions. A person with major addictions has lost their ability to live without using a crutch to make themselves functional in the world.
No one is playing with a full deck, because we have endless potential.
MDs generally practice a medical system that combats disease by remedy- producing effects different from those produced by the disease being treated. (definition from Webster New Colgate Dictionary.)
Allopathy (which is the main type of healthcare in the US) is about changing symptoms to an opposite of what they are. Allopathic means change to the opposite. (Read more in the differences between treatment and healing section.)
The effects produced by a disease are called symptoms.
Symptoms can be many types of discomfort, such as pain, dizziness, swelling, disorientation, lack of energy, dull senses, etc. Symptoms can be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. If it’s coming from only one area it still will affect the other areas.
Symptoms are your body telling you that you need a change. Usually, the longer it takes to make the change, the worse things become, requiring more time to heal the issues.
Symptoms are caused by doing that which makes you sick.
Per Webster’s Dictionary definition, discernment is a skill in discerning or discrimination, keenness of insight, a penetration that implies a searching going beyond what is obvious or superficial. To discern, is to detect with the eyes or with other senses.
Discernment requires a calmness within. Greater discernment is the ability to see and know the truth. Spiritual masters raise their consciousness to oneness, which enables them to know the truth of many things as they are in the moment with great clarity/discernment.
We can see things easier and faster, when we have achieved greater discernment in our awareness. Our present moment can be unclear when we have issues.
