Who Owns This Dis-Ease?
Another important realization for both practitioner and client concerns problem ownership: the disease 'belongs' to each person; the body has allowed it, therefore each one is responsible for it and also responsible for letting it go.
That's why Reconnective Healing is so empowering because it teaches us to heal our self rather than relying on the practitioner or other external means like drugs or physical manipulation techniques.
We come into this world, it seems, carrying certain predispositions and vulnerabilities: genetic and epigenetic characteristics that increase the likelihood of contracting certain diseases. In this 'new energy' however - this time of change in our personal and collective evolution - we have the opportunity to 'drop our karma.'
Drop Your Karma!
What does it mean to 'drop your karma'; to rise above your pain and dis-ease? It reminds me of our dog, Archie. He loved chasing sticks and balls at the beach. So much so that it was difficult to get him to drop that stick unless you gave him another one to chase...
Or what about when you get 'dropped' by your girlfriend/boyfriend or partner? It hurts. You go through the whole grieving process which might take years (even though she'll say 'we can still be friends') until, at last you find that you can actually be friends; you can think of her without resentment or longing. Even though you were 'dropped' and you will always think of her there's now enough separation that it no longer hurts.
It can be like that with pain and disease.
A healing session or three will give you the opportunity to see/feel the light; to recognize another state of being, a state of ease. Then it's up to you to maintain that feeling, to accept it as 'you' and move on - or not.
Healing can be instant and total or it can be instant and partial and all these possibilities can be appropriate depending how ready you are to 'drop your karma' and on the timing of the healing.
