As we sit here in the hottest month in recorded history, I have some things to say about why I do the things I do.
I have been focused on energetically healing people and places since 2011. Before that, I was focused on the physical healing of the earth through permaculture design, natural building, and water harvesting. The well-being of the earth and its people has been a lifelong pursuit for me. Over the years, I have learned some invaluable lessons. One of the most profound is the realization that healing the seemingly impossible is achievable. However, it demands exploring the unknown and acknowledging the multidimensional nature of all living beings. To embark on this healing journey, we must break free from the constraints imposed by society, which often dismisses or ridicules the existence of the spiritual world. By overcoming this gaslighting and belittling, we take the first steps toward soul and spirit-level healing.
The wounds inflicted upon the earth resonate within each of us, manifesting as fractal soul wounding that we all share. The scars of mines and the energetic remnants of nuclear testing reside within us collectively. My decade-long experience of working with people has shown me that there are consistent energetic blockages present in all of us, as well as our own individual wounding.
I firmly believe that personal healing holds the key to transforming our planet. By healing ourselves, we take the initial stride toward healing the Earth itself. This belief isn't merely a subjective viewpoint; it is a profound knowing that has grown within me.
In my pursuit of understanding, I have come to recognize the significant influence of our ancestors' ghosts on our current reality. A backlog of ghost energy holds us in suffering, clogging the circulatory systems of the earth. To mend our societal wounds and alleviate the burden on the earth and nature spirits, we must embark on the journey of ancestor healing.
As individuals, our fragmentation creates a ripple effect that extends into the collective consciousness. Coming to this awareness can be overwhelming, taking us to our knees in grief. However, this process is a necessary step on the path to healing.
While the gravity of these insights might seem daunting, I also want to emphasize that there are actionable steps we can take. These are within our capacity to address and, in truth, we are the only ones who can take these steps.
I believe it is essential to focus on three main areas: soul loss, ancestor healing, and past life fragmentation. These aspects are interwoven with the earth's own being. During the healing process, it is the earth that guides us, providing the fragments and pieces necessary for restoration. The beings of nature play a crucial role, in safeguarding these fragmented parts, and the nature spirits are profoundly impacted by our healing work.
In light of the climate crisis, I firmly believe that the most effective and sustainable action we can take to address climate change is to concentrate on our individual healing. Then from a clear place of compassion and love pick up a shovel and a pen to make the physical changes necessary.
By healing ourselves, we create a ripple effect of positive change that extends beyond our own lives, touching the earth and its many beings.
Thank you for taking the time to explore these thoughts with me. I hope they inspire you to consider the profound impact of your own personal healing in shaping a healthier and more harmonious world for all.
I am considering offering a class beginning in September on how to focus on your personal healing as an act of healing for the collective.
Let me know if you are interested.
