When the body gets sick, it is the last call for help. It means healing has not happened at the mental or spiritual/energy levels, and finally is settling into the body, saying to the person’s energy system: “You cannot go about life as usual until you heal this.” I find that typically a serious sickness or injury means that a BIG change is needed at some level in the person’s life: ending a job or relationship, or changing a major belief pattern that has been ruling/ruining their life.
I like being a “last resort” for people whom the western medical system has not been able to truly heal. Being a last resort often means that people are finally desperate enough to actually change. Typically, we continue on with our same old patterns as long as we can, given the scariness of venturing into new and unknown ways, and the scariness of facing our inner demons instead of fleeing before them. We often need a big jolt to find the courage to really change.
