Perhaps in more ways than one. It’s what it takes to ascend. It’s what works. And yes, you will be seeing a whole lot of your “shit” surface in the process.
It really doesn’t matter what level of healing we’re talking about – physical, mental, emotional and / or spiritual. You need to release what is not you, what does not serve your growth and evolution.
When you have “energy healing” work done, perhaps with the assistance of a “healer” (a bit of a misnomer since the one who really heals you is YOU, but they can very well assist you, deliver healing energy to you and combine their intentions with yours – “where two or more are gathered…”), what happens is the energy being delivered to you is working IN CONJUNCTION with your intention to heal. Sometimes just someone saying the right thing at the right time or a particular situation presented in your life will have the same effect as the energy provided by a “healer”.
The healing energy is “light”. That light will shine into your “dark” / “shadow” places and illuminate them, make them visible… so that you know what you need to heal, what to work on. “In yer face!” Energy healing is not like waving some magic wand and all your troubles just evaporate. I won’t kid you, it’s not necessarily what I’d call fun. I won’t dress it up to be something it’s not.
Doing energy healing drives your “demons” to the surface. It’s cathartic – it purges, cleanses, purifies. If you want the shit out, it has to first surface. It’s like if you got food poisoning. You feel like hell. You know you’re gonna hurl. You may not be in the mood to hurl and you’re not looking forward to that dreaded moment, but you know it’s gonna happen and you know you’ll be feeling better afterwards. But you’re going to go through the purging part in-between the poisoning and the feeling better parts.
Energetic healing is like, on a physical level, if you find a good detox to do, you’re going to purge toxins. You may very well go through a “detox crisis” and feel a bit lousy as accumulated toxins break loose from being stored in fat and your body purges them through any and every orifice it can find.
In all cases, I’d strongly suggest that as the healing process is happening, that you don’t fight or resist it. The ride may be bumpy enough as it is. Don’t make it worse on yourself by prolonging it by fighting and resisting.
Is it challenging? Hell yeah, it can be, but it’s not a crisis, it’s an opportunity. You will only heal by facing your issues, not by doing everything possible to avoid them or somehow try to work around them. The analogy would be like getting a massage – the therapist doesn’t try to avoid the knots in your muscles, they go right after them, digging a digit or elbow right into it while they tell you to focus on it and breeeeaaathe into it. Ouch! But that’s what it takes to release something, at any level.
A lot of folks think or are told (perhaps by someone with something to peddle) that certain, specific healing modalities are absolutely necessary. You may or may not find them helpful. Your intention to heal is first and foremost and following your inner Divine guidance will bring to you just what you need when you need it / can really use it.
It’s not truly necessary to understand things like chakra balancing, DNA activation, pineal gland activation, merkaba field, visualizing flames and rays and a whole host of other things. What’s important is that you HEAL.
If you heal completely, then your chakras WILL be balanced, other levels of your DNA WILL be activated, your pineal gland WILL be reactivated and your merkaba field WILL be available for you to use for ascension and all them there flames and rays, etc. will absolutely be working for you… even though you may not know diddly squat about these things or at least not the fine and extensive details.
If you are guided to learn about these various things at a lower-mind level, then fine, follow your guidance. Understanding these things may very well assist in your understanding and healing. But to say that a lower-mind, intense level of understanding of these things is absolutely necessary, well, no, not so much. If you’re getting it done, if what you are doing is working and you can sense the healing happening, and that thing that someone else is pushing so hard just isn’t resonating with you, then hey, maybe don’t go there or maybe not now. It’s ok that they suggest it, but you have to run it by your own inner guidance to determine if it’s for you.
But, on the flip side, don’t run from info / advice just because your “little demons” (resulting from wounds and programming) know that it means the end of them, whether you yourself are consciously aware or not. Thinking you’re oh, so “unique” and what works for someone else couldn’t possibly work for you, well, that’s programmed ego talking there.
And if someone wants to make you turn away from something that really seems to be what you’re being guided to, well never mind those attempting to dissuade you. I went to a psychic fair and heard this one gal give a talk. One tidbit of wisdom from her was, “If you are drawn to someone to give you a reading, it might be the worst psychic in the room and yet if they are the one that you are guided to, there is a reason for that and they’ll be the one to provide you with the information you need.”
If you’re moved to do these activations, etc. then yep, follow your own inner guidance. But not only will healing activate and balance these things, but it goes the other way around also, since everything is interconnected – your intention to activate and balance these parts of your being IS asking for healing… because… what is necessary for these activations and balancings to occur? All together now… HEALING!
And what you need to heal will be shown to you. One way or another, if you want to raise your frequency and ascend, you will need to heal. There is no sidestepping or jumping over healing with some “quick fix” meditation or activation or what have you. Oh, boo hoo, you just don’t want to have to face your shit. Wah. Get over it… and heal already…. or not.
You want to ascend?
Intend to heal.
Then watch for the opportunities to do so be delivered to you. Recognize them when they arrive and they often come through your day to day life.
Then flow with the process as best you can.
