Healing By The Moon
are many different ways to give and receive healing. A laugh, a hug,
even a pat on the back or soothing tone can provide healing to someone
in need. In today's environment of high medical bills, expensive
prescriptions and invasive procedures, many people are looking to
'alternative medicines'. But you might take note at just how many of
these 'new alternatives' are actually ancient healing methods or simple
'home remedies' your grand mother used to provide. No matter what you
chose to believe, nothing should take the place of a visit to your
doctor when problems arise. Holistic healing methods are designed to
assist in treating the 'whole' person and not just the physical ailment
most medical treatments deal with.
who carry Raven Medicine also carry a heavy responsibility to
Spirit.Raven is the messenger of magic from the great void where all
knowledge waits for us. He is also the symbol of changes in
consciousness, of levels of awareness and of perception. He carries the
mark of the shape-shifter. He is the carrier of healing energy from
distances. Those of you who have asked for messages of light and
healing and prayer on this list have asked for raven medicine. What all
of this means to us in the modern-day world is that raven medicine
gives you the ability to get inside another's head and heart, and to
understand them from the inside out, so to speak. You can "become" that
other person because of the depth of your understanding of them, and it
is not necessary to be in their physical presence for that to happen.
Spiritual healers and counsellors who are skilled in their abilities
are using raven power for they have a depth of understanding and
empathy not shared by all. Because of this power, they have the ability
to actually alter another's perception and behavior. They are able to
work real magic in bringing peace, healing and understanding to others.
Here is the heavy responsibility, and the dangers, in raven medicine.
As with all things, these powers can be used for dark purposes. It
enables the carrier to manipulate and coerce others into doing their
will to the detriment of the other. This medicine can be used for
selfish and self-serving purposes for the ego and greed of the carrier.
Because of the power of the levels in understanding others, a
practitioner of the black arts can use raven for destructive purposes.
If you carry raven medicine, you must always use it in the light for
the highest and best interests of others. You must use it for the good
and well being of others, and never for your own selfish motives even
though you may be tempted when times are bad. Raven medicine demands
that you walk in the light in all things. That's heavy with
responsibility for your own thoughts and deeds. Work your magic in the light -- you are Raven. HEALING...??
most common ~ understanding~ of healing is to have
discomfort....diminish so it does not .. interfere with...... day to
day living. This leads us to think that healing is just about the
physical body and conclude that if our bodies are giving us less
trouble we might think of ourselves as healed.
many of us have had friends or acquaintances that although they may be
physically fit but they are unhappy, frustrated, and many times even
feel helpless about an event ... or situation .... or relationhip.
Sometimes they even collapse with heart attacks or unexpected
then......healing is about more........ than just .......relieving
symptoms...... in the....physical.....body....Looking at the picture to
the right .... allow your imagination to open to the possibility ....
that the moon shows your emotions ... and it is impacting and touching
the other 3 parts of you .... your soul (spirit - light blue center
star) ..... and becomes solidified in your mind (1 solid dark blue
star)your body (2nd dark blue star). It is easy to see how we continue
to go ... round and round ... isn't it?? EMOTIONS
Emotions - EXPRESSED OR DENIED OR WITHHELD
emotions or feelings come we get the idea that the feelings will
interfere with what our mind says we need to do in that moment or we
use the feeling to say or do what we lack the courage to do kindly or
we suppress the feeling completely and ignore it.
Each of these will stop the ability to understand what the feelings and emotions offer.
WHAT FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS OFFER are: one thing only .. C L U E S ..
TO WHAT WE ARE T H I N K I N G !!!!!
you know what you are thinking and you discover it is not fair or
nurturing or someone elses thought and not yours and is not in
agreement with what you think...
Y O U C A N C H A N G E I T ! ! ! THOUGHTS
Thoughts seem to run rampant though your mind, IT IS ONLY IDEAS INITIALLY YOU HAVE A CHOICE ABOUT WHAT THOUGHT YOU MAKE SOLID. SOUL (SPIRIT - THE DIVINE ESSENCE OF YOU
- the living forever part of each of us that speaks to us all day BUT
.. very softly, very kindly, very gently .... the Goddess/God force
part of us we were born with THIS PART OF US ONLY COMES WHEN WE INVITE
IT TO HELP US IN MOMENT TO MOMENT EXPERIENCES. WHAT COMES FIRST???
Where do we begin to create heath, happiness and healing?
IDENTIFYING THE BELIEF OR THOUGHT that brings the upset and USING OUR
POWER OF CHOICE ... right then.....to replace that thought with one
THAT IS FAIR AND IN ALIGNMENT WITH the unconditional loving and
accepting part of us.
So...Healing begins when we feel a feeling, identify the thought that brought the upset.... and REPLACE THE THOUGHT IMMEDIATELY
These upsets, challenges and frustrations keep our energy very low.
