My friend, Loren, asked me recently if I believed in spontaneous healing. “Of, course!” I answered.
So why don’t more people experience this?
I believe our soul chooses to play in limitation. Think of it this way. If you’re sedentary and you decide you want to get healthy, sitting on the couch and watching tv isn’t going to cut it. You have to get up, get moving. If you haven’t done that in awhile, it’s pretty challenging. The more you stay with it, the greater the results. What if you set a large goal like running a marathon or swimming the English Channel? That’s going to require the kind of training that is going to push the mind and spirit as well as the body.
If we want to challenge ourselves as infinite, Divine beings, why not come into a finite body and experience limitations- in health, relationships, work, finances? Within these limitations are opportunities to unravel, remember, and dissolve the limitation. Snap. Just. Like. That.
So why don’t we?
Because the limitations are where we play. The limitations provides a contrast to the Light that we inherently know. On a hot summer day, a cold drink of water never tasted better, right? The darker the shadow, the more brilliant the light, even if the Light is constant, it’s perspective.
When we try to explore, “What is the purpose of this limitation?” we won’t even let ourselves go there. “There is no purpose other than suffering!” Hmmm… and what’s the suffering offer? What quality is there a longing for underneath the suffering? What quality is opposite of the suffering? How does that quality uniquely live within your soul?
Perhaps we don’t have spontaneous healing because the limitations, at the very least, are interesting; a contrast to our Divine nature. I am curious what you would love to spontaneously heal. Leave a comment below.
