Wisdom From The Mother…

A Gathering of Spirit Power – Artwork/Photography by Toni Roberts

We must learn to turn our bodies over to the Inner Physician

To

the

Mother

the

Goddess

the

Inner Healer

the

Creatress of all Life

And thus avoid falling victim to cultural myths of Old age

Disease

and

Dying

 

For

We

Are

Made

Whole

and

SUSTAINED

from

the

Inside

 Out

What Has Your Disease Come To Tell You?

My experience with breast cancer some thirteen years ago taught me one thing…without a doubt

Disease is a messenger from the Soul!

Today as I sat before my altar in contemplative meditation…wondering about the cause of this sudden painful stiffness in my right thumb…and recent erratic blood pressure readings…the following Understandings drifted across the landscape of my mind:

All dis-ease is a physical manifestation of internalspiritual and/or psychological conditions…

Arthritis mirrors rigidity…an unwillingness to yield…to bend…to surrender to the realities of your physical existence…resistance and stubbornness…instead of non-resistance and surrender…

High or erratic blood pressure is a manifestation of your reacting emotionally to that which you find unpleasant and unacceptable…instead of rationally accepting that which you cannot change within the limitations of your human power…it is a result of emotionalism…of your repeating dysfunctional emotional patterns modeled by your immature parents…

***

We must learn to accept that which we cannot humanly change

***

Seek within for solutions…ask and you shall be answered…directed by Wisdom higher than the rational mind…

***

Nonresistancesurrenderacceptance…are the keys

***

And so, my Soul imparted this bit of Wisdom which I shall surely follow…for my Soul has never led me astray along this lifelong Journey to Wholeness

***

Whatever your stumbling blocks in life may be…I encourage you to seek within for solutions…for understanding…for guidance and wisdom

And then wait in quiet acceptance for the responding Message from your Soul

For your Soul will never lead you astray

On Overcoming Dis-Ease…

The question I ask my ailments is: What have you come to teach me?

The last time I initiated such a conversation was a few weeks ago when I noticed stiffness, pain and discomfort in my right knee.

Upon being questioned the knee answered:

“Get off your ass and go back to walking a mile a day! And puleeze, try to be more flexible and adaptable with people—and in your acceptance of life in general. You do realize, don’t you, that the world is not made in the image of Toni Roberts!?”

And so…In addition to changing my attitude…I got up off my lazy butt; bundled up against the bitter cold, New York City-wind-chill temperatures in the low 20s; and ventured outdoors. Well…perhaps I haven’t been doing the whole mile each day but I have been doing at least ¼ of a mile before heading to the Stop & Shop for my reward…

And as you would know it, one day recently, while walking against the push of the icy winds, I noticed that the right knee had stopped hurting…

I’ve been using this process of questioning physical and emotional pain or discomfort for a whole lot of years. It has not kept me free from all human ailments. That’s not the point. What I have discovered is that pain…diseases…even cancer…any and all discomforts and imbalances of  mind-body-soul…are the direct result of a disconnect  on our part, with the Energetic Frequency which underlies and maintains the balanced, harmonious, homeostatic equilibrium of the mind-body-spirit collective that we humans call “my body.” In Truth, it is neither “my” body nor “my” life. These “bodies” are manifestations of a Creative Energetic Intelligence that has Its own Mysterious Purpose. (Yeah…I know your Pastor has all the answers!) We humans are Its tools for the accomplishment of that Unknown Purpose. And surprise, surprise! We are not here to serve ourselves but as servants to that which has caused us into being.

When I am consciously in alignment with this Great Mystery of Life I am ageless being and whenever I fall out of alignment through errors of thought, belief or action; my imbalance manifests as dis-harmony and dis-ease of the body, mind or soul.

And when I am in-alignment how glorious and wondrous this existence becomes…and surprisingly without any conscious effort on my part…

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

A Little Something I Have Learned About Disease…

altar-view-028

Contemplation – Photo by Toni Roberts

    or

physical ailments

of any kind…

   by any name:

pharmaceuticals

cannot

heal

the

psychic-emotional

pain

at the root of

all

body-mind-spirit

   in-balances

and

      dis-harmonies

that manifest on the physical level as:

   dis-ease…

the specific disease by whatever name along with whatever symptoms

is simply a

messenger

from the

   soul

   a

call

to look

   within

   as we all well know…

  killing the messenger

      will never solve the problem…

As a Tribal Elder…One who has lived in this flesh body for seventy-eight years…I offer this insight as food for thought…to all of my sisters everywhere who are suffering in pain; and who have accepted the belief that pharmaceuticals can heal the wounds of mind, body and spirit that we have suffered through the ages…and continue to suffer…along with our beloved Gaia…as females of the species.
