Transfornation is almost always a messy business...
Since I am currently dealing with a HEALING CRISIS, I thought it might be a good time to explain what is meant by this.
In general, a healing crisis is what our body goes through whenever the level of toxins being released by healing processes in our body (and light matrix) are of a higher volume than our bodies can release--thus, a healing crisis is our physical response to the buildup of toxic elements (or energies) that is taking place.
These toxins can be from an illness, the treatments for an illness (like chemo or radiation), allergic reactions, chemicals, drastic changes in diet, etc. This also applies to toxic energies and blockages in our light matrix fields surrounding us, as everything that happens in these biofields also influences our physical bodies.
In the alternative health field, this very often happens when we are releasing really big or strong fears or emotional blocks, or if we try to do too much at one time. This is one reason why I recommend NEVER engaging in more than 2 hours of energy or spiritual healing at one time, and to allow a couple days between for our systems to reset themselves.
The symptoms are very much like a head cold, and can include intestinal symptoms, as well. One of the hallmarks of what we call the "spiritual flu" is very frequent urination, as the kidneys flush toxins from your body. For this reason, it is very important to drink plenty of water and clear fluids, to both replenish lost water and support the kidneys in doing their job. Stay away from caffiene, and from foods/drinks that have chemical additives/preservatives, since these make your kidneys and liver work even harder.
Get the rest your body is asking for, and don't push yourself to "get things done". These toxins and toxic energies often hinder our ability to think clearly, or make good decisions. Do NOT do any spiritual or energy work until the healing crisis passes, as you wil only make things worse. If you are dealing with releasing an emotional issue, it is best to also stay away from things that trigger the wounds.
For instance, I am currently dealing with something that has been blocking me from stepping out in the big way I am being called to do, which involves seriously putting on the mantle of the Divine Guardian, and all which that means. My Wounded Inner Child archetype is being strongly triggered by some aspects of this, and has developed many layers of resistance--down to the soul level. (yes, our souls are subject to wounding and other things that alter its matrix--a subject for another time.)
This is what Jeff Brown calls the "hero's journey", because it is the hardest thing we can be called upon to do, and the guts, strength and perseverence this takes is not for the faint of heart. Part of this journey is the occasional HEALING CRISIS, which is truly to be celebrated because freedom is on the other side!
So I will gladly sit here with my water and hot tea, snuggled in my recliner as this works its way out, anticipating wonderful changes that will follow! If you are currently experiencing a healing crisis of some kind, I give you a high five, and implore you to rest in the realization that you are not ill, you are undergoing deep transformation!!
