I’ve been listening to an audiobook, ‘Dying to Wake Up’ by Dr Rajiv Parti. It’s a fascinating account of his Near Death Experience (NDE) and consequently his change of lifestyle and occupation after his recovery.
He talks of how the light being and the angels told him to change his career and focus on providing ‘consciousness based healing’ to heal diseases of the soul. These diseases include addiction, depression and chronic pain. When hearing these ailments being read out, I thought, ‘oh yes, I need help with those’ (in particular addiction and depression) and thought about how it was interesting that they were classified as diseases of the soul (rather than diseases of the body). I thought about this concept a couple of times when it came up throughout listening to the book.
It was only later, when reflecting about the book and the messages, it suddenly occurred to me, that this concept is all about healing the soul – just like the title of my blog, Heal My Soul!! I thought about how this is another case of serendipity and the universe calling out to me. Whether the message to me is that I need to heal my own diseases of my soul, mainly my addiction to coca-cola, by using the techniques that perhaps he might talk about in the book (I haven’t finished it yet, and anticipate that he may do so later in the book) or it could be a reminder to get back on track with this blog, which I see as my creative outlet, which, once again, I have let slide and fall away.
A while back, (around the time that I came up with the title of my blog, Heal My Soul) I was thinking about my health and how energy-less and drained I felt, I found myself getting a picture in my mind, or a sensation, which when I tried to put into words, was that I felt like I was a wounded warrior who needed to retreat and heal before going back into battle. It was the idea that it was my soul that was the wounded warrior, and it was my soul that needed healing.
This concept comes back to me now with the idea of healing my soul of disease.
