Healing versus Curing – Finding the Best Path for You_Featured_, Healing Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012
As an energy healer, I am often approached by people looking for a cure to their illnesses and physical ailments. Most have already been to see countless medical doctors to no avail. Naturally, the doctors think in terms of curing the symptoms of a disease through medical procedures and drugs. But it’s equally important to look deeper into the patient to search for the underlying emotional cause, the root of the problem. And even with the best that both traditional and alternative medical systems have to offer, many times no cure is forthcoming.
What is crucial to understand is that “curing” and “healing” are not the same thing. Western medicine focuses on curing – that is, ridding the body of the disease or ailment and returning it to the state it was in before it became ill. Healing involves putting the body in a state better than it was before it was ill, because the origins of the problem that caused the illness have been addressed. Healing deals with so much more than just physical ailments; it encompasses your soul, your spirit, your mind and your body.
Everyone has something in need of healing, whether it is your physical health, your weight, your finances, your relationships, or your overall life balance. No one has everything perfect at the same time all the time, so we are all in need of healing. It is easy when a person is sick to focus solely on fixing their physical body and to ignore their mental, emotional and spiritual health when perhaps that is exactly where the key to healing lies.
