We have seen the news headlines. Hospitals and healthcare systems struggle to manage the influx of coronavirus patients and the tragic death toll.
Even after cancelling 2 million operations, healthcare systems are near collapse. The patients whose operations have been include those suffering from cancer, cataracts, needing hip replacement, to name a few. All have been sidelined to make way for COVID-19 patients.
Witnessing and experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19 whilst being hospitalised as a patient has been terrifying for most. One moment you’re in a ward full of patients. The next day one or more of the patients are now dead.
The post-lockdown world is a ticking time-bomb. The consequences on mental, emotional and physical health are manifold. The areas of most alarming surges include:
- Escalating domestic abuse
- Family and relationship breakdowns
Then there is the impending economic fallout that lies ahead. Economists are doing their best to paint an optimistic picture. They are hoping against hope we do not experience a collapse like the Great Depression of 1929-33.
Depending on which part of the world they live in, people’s lives and livelihoods will be greatly affected no matter how optimistic we are. The COVID-19 lockdowns across the planet have led to the largest rises in unemployment since the 1930s.
Europe is expecting its biggest peacetime recession in over a hundred years. Society will be fractionalised and communities marginalised. This includes a further possible rise of the far right and the far left. All of this impacts further on the health and well-being of large swathes of the population.
Can we leave it in the hands of the government and health authorities?
The answer is an emphatic “no”.
Health services across the world are teetering at breaking point. Health charities will struggle to manage simply because of the lack of available charitable funds.
Healing a post-pandemic planet
It is in our darkest hour that we find our greatest opportunity to shine. There is a significantly greater number of people in the world who need healing than there are professional healers and therapists available.
Therefore, it is a ludicrous notion for a healing professional to claim there aren’t enough opportunities. It is more of a matter of who you say “no” to, but a matter of what kind of clients you help most effectively. There are hundreds of modalities of healing. However, in this article, we will look at energy healing as a tool for change.
Energy healing as a transformation tool
Energy medicine or energy healing is a branch of alternative medicine based on a belief that healers can channel healing energy into a patient, which lead to positive results.
The mechanistic world of Newtonian physics has a dismal view of energy healing. Quantum physics was a step too far for even Albert Einstein. Back then, the science and mathematics of quantum physics was in its infancy. Today, it is far more advanced and its principles implemented across all technologies.
Energy healing is traditionally based on thousands of years of medical practice across different modalities. These include acupressure, acupuncture, Qigong, distance healing and much more.
Energy healing often is associated with working with energetic causes of the symptoms rather than alleviating the symptoms. For total transformation to take place, we must look at the seed cause of an health issue.
What is a seed cause?
John visits his traditional doctor with the complaint of constant headache. The doctor does one of the following:
A. Asks a few quick questions and then prescribes headache pills to alleviate the symptoms.
B. Asks what happens prior to the headache. Johns says he bangs his head against the wall continuously and then the headache kicks in. The doctor suggests that John address the root cause of the headache – the head banging.
C. Finds out the root cause and then asks what causes the head banging. The doctor keeps asking question until she discover that when John was 4 years old, one way of getting his mother’s attention when she was too busy with his other siblings was to bang his head on the wall. The first time he did this, his mother dropped everything to come to his aid. This first event is the “seed cause”.
Although this is a totally made up example, it is not too dissimilar to how different healing modalities work.
- Address the symptoms and you only alleviate the symptoms temporarily. This is change that is not permanent.
- Address the root cause and the symptoms are likely to disappear. However, symptoms may appear in a different format/disease. This leads to a more lasting change.
- Address the seed cause and you will not only remove all future symptoms, but you will discover that new wisdom is gained. Furthermore, the individual will also be able to plant a new and more empowering seed cause into their life. This leads to life-altering transformation.
We are not meant to be victims of circumstance.
Illness, disease and tragedies, as nasty as they can feel at the time, they also carry opportunities for the sufferer to change their way of being, thinking and doing. Each and every burden carries and equal and opposite gift for the individual.
These are the moments that allow us to find out who we really are and what we are here to do on the planet. This is part of the transformation process. In the end, the things that cause us most grief and sadness, if allowed, becoming turning points in our lives.
The post-pandemic world is an opportunity for humanity to reset itself to one that is recognised for its kindness, caring and compassion. After all, we’ve already tested out the competitive world of quick fixes, quick results and survival of the fittest.
And it’s failed miserably.
Perhaps this is the time to see healing as a long-term journey to the birthing of a new cooperative, collaborative and infinitely more creative world.
