Spiritual Self-Awareness

The only way by which you may really understand how to bring about your own healing is by
focusing on your spiritual essence
There is a formless energy [an ever-flowing life-force]
which is the construct of everything in the physical universe.
It is this same energy which is the creative source of your physical form. This is who you are.
You are this source energy, not your form. My intention is to re-acquaint individuals with this truth ~

'Divine Love...God, is the ever-present internal life-force. The divine healer within.'

My purpose as a massage therapist and spiritual facilitator is to support individuals as they reconnect
and re-identify with this internal energy source. By their acknowledgement of this truth about themselves,
they will realize their ability to support their own healing process.

Examining our paradigm

When you lose sight of your [formless] Divine Self and forget your Oneness with God, you get caught up in the illusion of duality and multiplicity. Your divine mind becomes lost behind a veil of illusion that your ego has dropped over your eyes. You have separated yourself from that which unites us and you have become attached to your personalitity and your individualism. You identify yourself by your physical self and/or this personality. You become bound by the pains and pleasures of your body and by the misconceptions of your mind. You subject yourself to their limitations. You trade off the experience of knowing your true spiritual self, for living within your ego's contrived reality. Your mind creates an illusion of lack and fills you with desires and you forget that you are whole and complete.

In order to regain the lost experience of your natural state of spiritual bliss, [with much effort] you search in the physical world for fulfillment. By operating this way [from your ego's thought patterns] you create internal stress which affects you physically, emotionally and mentally. Living your life in this manner disrupts your body's delicately balanced nature, thus creating a physiological shift in your Well-Being. Excessive physical exertion, self-defeating thinking of how you see yourself as not okay, or the suppression of emotions, ultimately manifests in your body as dis-ease in the form of mental or physical illness and/or muscle tension.

When you re-identify yourself as your whole and complete Spirit within you re-gain your sense of Oneness with the Divine. The harmony of all life. You experience synchronicity and balance with the natural rhythm of the universe. You bring your awareness to the reality that this 'pure love' energy is your true Self. Your physical being gravitates toward that perfect state, and a natural healing takes place.

A "Heaven Sent" Massage~The healing process

Your physical body is interconnected with nature. As with all of nature, all aspects of your body function optimally when allowed to operate at their own natural rhythm.

Some physical benefits of massage are:

*Improved circulation of blood and lymph, supplying nutrients to and cleansing toxins from body tissues.
*The relaxation of stressed muscles and over-taxed internal organs.
*Iimproved muscle tone and reduced muscular atrophy.

Massage also provides a nurturing connection which can aide in alleviating the effects of emotional trauma. Emotional experiences perceived through your various modalities [sight, sound, smell, etc.] These experiences are simultaneously recorded in your body's cellular memory as well as in your mind's memory. When contacting the body during a massage, such an emotional experience may become re-stimulated, causing it to resurface with all of the impact of it's first occurrence. Expression or release of these emotions, further assists in the relaxation and balancing of the body.

Thought patterns play a major role in shaping and maintaining the condition of your physical and emotional bodies. Whenever an emotional release takes place, a related, "non-supportive" thought pattern can usually be uncovered in the process. Re-identifying with your "spiritual" Self replaces old patterns with healthy insights [re-framing], allowing you to feel at peace and re-affirm your "Whole-ness".

This integration of 'Body-Mind' and 'Spirit' enables you to experience the balanced nature of your Higher Being. It is through Self-awareness and Self-love by which you manifest and maintain a healthy physical form.
