Spiritual Healing, Learning and Heightened Awareness

Spiritual Healing, Learning and Heightened Awareness

by Dr Philip F. Kearney, Clinical Self-Healing Therapist

Self-healing in inner awareness can be specifically used by individuals to make deep personal, philosophic, religious, and spiritual changes in their lives. Individuals today enjoy investigating all aspects of their inner lives. People are truly concerned with the innermost purpose of their lives. Religious, metaphysical, spiritual, and inquisitive individuals seek to answer timeless questions such as their purpose for being here in this life, life lessons to be learned, spiritual life goals, and much more. Others desire to know what they should be doing in their careers & personal lives to achieve the most productive results with their lives. People seek answers regarding the pursuit, development, meaning & enrichment of friendships, personal connections, & cherished relationships, and true happiness in their lives.

Self-healing in inner awareness takes a person to the higher awareness levels of the mind which is usually referred to as the soul or eternal portion of the mind. At this heightened level of awareness, individuals are able to discover more spiritual knowledge about themselves- inner subconscious thoughts, self-perceptions, awareness of the soul, true life knowledge, their spiritual motivations, their innermost desires, their truest & eternal beliefs.

There are many thoughts, interests & questions that can be addressed. For example, one might wish to discover how adversity and obstacles in our life are potential opportunities for spiritual development. A person may seek to understand the hidden spiritual significance behind life’s unexpected events & new directions. Many individuals come to realize that life experiences, emotional discomfort & physical illness can all have a spiritual meaning. Knowing their meaning brings complete resolution to these difficulties. Individuals seek to learn the “soul” consequences of their reluctance or failure to confront life’s challenges. We can learn if the disruptions & conflicts in our consciously planned life path are actually desired by the higher self for spiritual growth. Healing helps a person decide on how to deal on a more spiritual level with the hardship & calamities of life.

What has caused a person to repeatedly make all the same mistakes, leading to very similar problems, & getting into unsuccessful relationships over & over again? Who is it that should remain in our lives & help our spiritual development, and who should be omitted? A person can use the mind to understand, develop, & balance their personal spiritual abilities to achieve mental, emotional & physical harmony. Individuals may discover that their spiritual & behavioral response to circumstances is more important than the content of the actual events. One can begin to understand how a new direction in life & the opportunity for much greater personal enrichment will often occur following the most traumatic events in our life. One also learns about the spiritual aspects of self-healing. This has to do with understanding the natural healing capability and natural healing energy that is always present and always accessible to our inner mind. The individual can also learn why she/he has neglected to avail themselves of this natural healing source through much of their lives, and how to utilize that energy for self-healing from now on.

Using self-healing in inner awareness a person is able to tune in again to their natural healing abilities. They are also able to reconnect with the higher wisdom that is always there for each person, the wisdom that is designed to help each person throughout their entire lives. Individuals can discover what caused a spiritual conflict or issue in their lives, and what is necessary for she/he to completely resolve the issue. Individuals are able to modify or alter their lives in accordance with their deepest thoughts, spiritual aspirations, and desires. People are able to develop greater understanding, gain a wider perspective on life’s circumstances, follow their inner guidance, have a greater awareness of one’s inner personality, access deeper mental abilities, and have the opportunity to make significant new life choices. Most of these spiritual learning visits are customized according to the personal needs, circumstances, & desires of the individual.

  1. “Individuals may discover that their spiritual & behavioral response to circumstances is more important than the content of the actual events.”

    I’m not sure why I failed to learn this life lesson earlier, but I am definitely guilty of inappropriate responses. My reaction to anything the least bit uncomfortable in the past decade or so has been: 1) anger, 2) find a way to drink, 3) self-loathing.

    More recently, I have found myself first reacting to negative situations with a sadness, but the tears help me through it. I come out a better person, and I might just have learned something about myself through the process. Being aware of what I am feeling and why is new to me — and it’s not always pleasant. But I wouldn’t give it up for all the beer in the world.

    I think the serenity prayer sums it up nicely, as I have to accept the things I cannot change. But I can change my responses.

    • “My reaction to anything the least bit uncomfortable in the past decade or so has been: 1) anger, 2) find a way to drink, 3) self-loathing.”

      I’m just finding out over the last year how much anger I have built up from my childhood. This has been a major ingredient in my downward spiral. I was hiding it from myself.

      I think I will be adding a few more posts on anger; how to recognize it and how to deal with it in a healthy way.

  2. Proverbs 3:5-8 (ESV)

    “Trust in the Lord will all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your way acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.”

    • Hey Jeremiah, thanks for visiting the site and commenting.

      Thanks also for sharing a quote from your religion, I’m not sure how it’s appropriate to either reality or recovery, but thanks for taking the time to input.

      Obviously there are four things from your quote that someone who believes in, and lives in reality could never do:
      “Trust in the Lord”
      “do not lean on your own understanding”
      “Be not wise in your own eyes”
      “fear the Lord” (which is it , “trust” or “fear”? I find religious books very confusing and contradictory)

      And only one we can both agree on: ” turn away from evil ”

      So let me leave us both with a “proverb” based on the above article
      you are commenting on:

      “May we find an inner awareness so we might be able to tune in again to our natural healing abilities.
      May we reconnect with that higher wisdom that is always there for each of us, the wisdom that is designed to help each person throughout our entire lives.
      May we find what caused a spiritual conflict/issue/need in our lives, and what is necessary to completely resolve it.
      May we modify or alter our lives in accordance with our deepest thoughts, spiritual aspirations, and desires.
      May we be able to develop greater self understanding, gain a wider perspective on life’s circumstances, follow our inner guidance, have a greater awareness of ourselves and our inner personality, access deeper mental abilities, and have the opportunity to make significant new life choices. ”

      Oh yeah, and may we “turn away from evil”.

  3. Hey Mike,

    I think anger can be very toxic. I’ve noticed that if I just let the anger dissipate, then it turns to tears — because most of my anger is just my way of hiding that I am hurt.

    I love your response to Jeremiah above. I really like the way you approach people like that — you just say intelligently state your beliefs. I try to avoid confrontation, so I have trouble doing that sometimes even though I am confident in my beliefs. But I really respect you for it. I love your tone as well — always makes me smile. Thanks.

    • Hey Melinda,

      Yeah, my anger has been very toxic for me.
      And it uses up a lot of energy.
      I’ve even suffered “anger hangovers” long after an annoying event has taken place.

      Here’s the best quote I’ve ever heard about anger:

      “Anger is like an acid that destroys, from the inside, the vessel that carries it.”

      Whew, when I first heard that I was floored.
      I heard it in a video (on YouTube maybe?) and wish I had bookmarked it.
      Simple, truthful, and to the point.
      Nothing good can come to holding on to, and storing up anger.
      We need to find healthy ways to get it out.

      Mike

      PS: I usually delete the random and irrelevant quotes from ancient books of superstition and mythology that simultaneously demand that I worship, trust and fear some fictitious judgmental deity.
      But somehow Jeremiah’s snuck through.
      It can only be the work of the devil. haha

      LOL

      Almost forgot:
      Fun Bible Facts: Did you know that the word “reality” appears nowhere in the Bible?
      What? There’s no reality in the Bible?
      Check it! LOL!
