Healing is usually not an issue for us until body symptoms force us to look for it. In this article I show on which level healing can be found and where your search will be rather futile. And I invite you to follow your heart!
In short, the primary causes of "illness" always lie in the spiritual, never on the physical plane.
All causes can be traced back to a primary cause. Symptom-combating is not healing, but hinders it. We can learn to accept the appearances and symptoms of "diseases" and let them lead us to the causes.
Through judgment and projection, we distance ourselves from the life that lovingly wants to nurture us. Instead, we cultivate fear, lack, and resistance. And in the preliminary result, we are trapped in a dream world of our own making.
We can recognize this, forgive, and wake up from this dream. A new unequivocal YES to life finally gives us spiritual healing and complete freedom.

The essence of health
Can we actually describe what health is in its essence?
For this we would first have to really experience them.
According to the WHO, "Health ... is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
In essence, we are a spiritual being. Our body and the world we perceive reflect our spirit. If the latter is completely healthy and sends out only loving thoughts, the body will also reflect health with certainty. Beauty and youthfulness come from within.
We feel the essence of health only when we have become health. When we have recognized ourselves in our own radiant self as a pure loving spirit. This recognition usually happens in stages. We are on the way to ourselves.
And in truth we are healthy.
The essence of "disease
In thought, we have temporarily lost ourselves in a dual world. We experience it asleep - like a dream. In this dream, our mind is not pure, but divided.
The life-affirming inner voice is health-preserving, clear and clearly loving.
Unfortunately, we often fail to hear it when our wandering ego thoughts drown it out. The ego sees itself more as a protection against life. It often enough provides downright delusions as reasons why life is not to be trusted.
Louise Hay writes: "Each of us is 100% responsible for each of our experiences. We ourselves cause every so-called 'disease' in our bodies."
Illness is a defence against the truth.
Disease is not a coincidence.
Like all defense mechanisms, it is an insane device for self-deception.
Disease is a choice.
It is not a thing that happens to you, completely uninvited,
something that weakens you, that makes you suffer.
All forms of illness, even unto death,
are physical expressions of the fear of awakening.
They are an attempt to increase sleep for fear of awakening.
A Course in Miracles
The statement: "Illness is a defence against the truth" leads directly to the question, "What truth is meant here?"
Answer: Everything is connected with everything in love! Separation is illusion. Life lovingly permeates and fills all and everything. Being all-one is truth, being separate "alone" is illusion.
A clear and simple answer is also given by Rabiaprobably the most famous Sufi Islamic mystic:
In truth, there is only one disease: being separated from God. That is why I know only one desire: To be one with God, and only one prayer: Thy will be done!
Symptoms are effects
In many ways we have mentally separated ourselves from the LOVE that is God. Our YES to life was gradually becoming a "Yes but""and finally also to a "No, better not".
In short: This separation from LOVE leads to lack, fear and "guilt". We like to blame the other person. We get used to judge, to reject, to prefer and to exclude. All judgments and fearful actions fall back on us and create effects. And we experience these effects as symptoms of illness!
The initial one "sickness" - the separation from God, respectively LOVE - becomes many "Diseases"The more we see guilt everywhere and condemn "guilty" people. In fact, the list of definitions of "diseases" increases from year to year. We can well say that we are always finding new "Inventing "diseases. Or more precisely: we always invent new disguises of the one causal "disease" - separation.
Central cause of "disease"
This separation, as quoted above, is nothing but self-deception. We have entangled ourselves deeply in a world of deception with our wandering thoughts.
We believe our errors to be true. Very specifically, many of us believe in "disease" as if it were an idol to which we give our daily, and often even hourly, attention! Thus we tend to believe in the superiority of the power of "disease" rather than that of LOVE or God.
The universe is mercilessly neutral here, providing everything according to our inner convictions - which we therefore find confirmed again and again!
A fatal consequence of these errors is for me also that we turn for healing rather to a medicine, which is based on exactly these errors, than to the instance, which can and wants to heal us really - God and/or the original force and source of all being. We let symptoms be operated away and are surprised when they come back.
We can - and should - decide anew NOW to wake up and accept the Primal Power as an effective source of healing.
Forgiveness and redemption
Since it was primarily our unloving thoughts that caused "sickness", it is essential to consciously let go of them. This is done through forgiveness, not in the classical way, but in a non-judgmental version.
I would like to illustrate the difference. Classical "Christian" forgiveness is often used like this: "You have done something very bad and brought much suffering upon me. There is nothing I can do about it. But I am generous and forgive you." Guilt is confirmed here, the "guilty" person remains trapped in my judgment. One still places oneself on the pedestal of "generosity".
Real forgiveness happens completely different. We forgive not an "enemy" but ourselves for having judged. And we thank the brother for bringing this to our attention.
“Forgiveness simply exists in seeing past the mistake from the beginning and thus making it unreal for you.” A Course in Miracles
I often hear you say that Love is blind, meaning that it can see no fault in the beloved. That kind of blindness is the height of seeing. Would you were always so blind as to behold no fault in anything.
Nay, clear and penetrating is the eye of Love. Therefore, it sees no fault. When Love has purged your sight, then would you see nothing at all unworthy of your Love?
Only a love- shorn, faulty eye is ever busy finding faults. Whatever fault it finds are only its own faults.
Mikhail Naimy, The Book of Mirdad
Real forgiveness liberates
It frees my counterpart and also the world as a whole from my judgments and projections. Once I am ready to completely give up all preconceived notions and images, I allow my counterpart to simply BE for the first time.
We find redemption as soon as we have forgiven ourselves completely. With each individual forgiveness, however, healing occurs.
Question: How can I practice this kind of forgiveness from the heart when something really bad has been done to me? And even say thank you?
True forgiveness is a healing process. If you do not forgive, you will eventually become physically ill and possibly even die from it.
About a year later, I was talking about it with a mutual friend: "I can probably tell you the reason: she was a master at repression. She was abused as a child."
I can only be truly grateful when I have become aware of my own part in the event. These are not infrequently karmic events that lie completely hidden in the subconscious. In a sorrowful situation, therefore, a purposeful question can be: What do I have to forgive myself for?
YES to life = YES to being saved
Everything we fight against only becomes stronger - even "diseases". As soon as we give up all resistance and struggle, there is a chance that we will become aware of all the important connections.
Then we realize that "we cause every so-called 'disease' in our bodies ourselves." Louise Hay (see above)
Now we can even lovingly accept the "illness". Exactly through this, it can show us where we still need to forgive ourselves. With each - necessary - forgiveness we allow ourselves a bit more to simply be. We let go of the idea of guilt and even remove the word "guilt" from our vocabulary altogether.
We also begin to allow life to simply BE. Very liberating, even gratifying, is the experience that life shows itself to be more and more helpful, generous and empowering. It is absolutely there for you! So that you can fully blossom as the divine being that you always have been!
