Blessings and greetings to you all! I had a beautiful reflection from a plant friend I felt drawn to sit beside for my lunch today. The plant was a young Kawakawa, but unlike the many abundant Kawakawa we have on our property, this one wasn't looking in peak health. Instead of the rich brown bark, this plant had white, scaly patches on it's branches, while the leaves were speckled and small. My first thought was that I had been drawn there to offer healing to the plant, and began wondering what might have caused these issues. However, on tuning in I had an interesting message come to me, which was this:
How can we offer healing when we don't see the wholeness of a being, and deeply love it in it's entirety? This struck a chord with me. How easy it is to focus our attention on the problem, the disorder, and move to dissect it, understand it, and make it all better. What I was being reminded of was to firstly embrace all that the plant was, to love it warts and all, without trying to fix or solve anything. As I shifted to this focus, I felt a tremendous amount of love and affection for the plant, seeing the plant's beauty, loving even the white bark as part of the journey that it had had on this planet thus far. I felt the joy of simply being in our connection, and from this space of non-judgemental love I was then able to witness healing energy coming in for my plant friend.
We are taught to look for problems and to solve them, to figure things out and fix them. Of course, these can be useful strategies at times. However, what if we approached ourselves firstly with deep acceptance and nurturing love as a place to begin our healing, instead of the anxiety and division that a "fix the problem" mentality can foster? Ultimately, such a mind set tells us that part of us is wrong or broken, which floods our body with chemicals associated with fear, anxiety and stress - all of which are in direct opposition to our body's healing mechanisms. Our rejuvenating and repairing processes operate best when the body is in a restful, peaceful place - when we feel the security of being deeply accepted and loved, warts and all.
This is the approach I bring to support people with their health. It is a particular strength of ThetaHealing, a modality that supports us to heal that which blocks us from being the vibrant, love filled beings we naturally are - all with a sense of appreciation and reverence for the wisdom of the body and what these blocks may have been serving for us in our lives.
