Find the Healer Inside of You

title % titleI sit and try to write about the dry fall and what this does to our subtle energies but for some reason I am drawn to another subject today.

Recently my husband had a small procedure (dental) that turned into a major event and in that time he asked me to apply Ayurveda to help with his healing. He is very open to what I say and ask him to do so he was one of the “easy ones”

One thing that struck me while treating him with various teas and rinses is he thought that because what we were doing was so “difficult” he could understand why more people didn’t try Ayurveda.

If people really, truly, deeply cared about them selves they would make the effort. Do we live in a society of people who don’t have that type of regard for their own “self”?

I started to think, “this is what our style of society has made people start being, a society of people who have a pain and take a pill”.

We need to look deeper to see where the pain is coming from; covering it up is only a bandage. Ayurveda DOES take a bit of effort and as my friend whom I treat tells me it can be a “pain in the Ass” but it is THE ONLY thing that has worked for her. She has learned to listen to herself, and that was her first step towards healing.

Everyone is different, some people are more sensitive, others will be healing and not know it, all of the signs will be there but they won’t notice them. We have been trained to NOT listen because we just “take something for that”. It’s not until we have a crisis that we look for a different, perhaps better way to do things.

Unfortunately that crisis comes many times in the form of an Allopathic Doctor (western Doctor) telling you there is nothing more they can do for you. If you are a person that does not accept that, you will most likely seek other forms of medicine. Eventually you find your way to Ayurveda, the “Science of Life”.

So back to what my husband said about Ayurveda being difficult. I know people think this yet I know we have a cellular knowledge and intelligence and if we listen to that, we will be more aware of what our bodies need.  This knowledge is intrinsic in our nature but we have lost sight of it because our attention spans have shortened and we need/expect immediate results.

When you understand the deeper principals of Ayurveda it goes without saying that our energies affect everything and our Intentions are energy “ports” all of their own.

When we have intention and we set goals that we can visualize, we can manifest what we focus on, in the fashion it can be realized with the sort of life that is being led.

What we know about Ayurveda and the body is that nutrition is partly dependent on the 6 tastes (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, astringent, bitter).

Yet in our society, we have been used to taking that pill. Typically Ayurvedic treatments required a decoction or a combination of herbs in a liquid or powder form not in capsule form. Encapsulating totally bypasses one of the first processes of digestion and that is taste.

According to Ayurveda each taste has an effect on different organs and thus related to different diseases when used in excess.

Taste Organ Disease
Sweet Spleen Pancreas Diabetes, obesity, tumors, slow digestion
Sour Small Intestine Ulcers, boils, hemorrhage, thirst, fevers
Salty Kidney Hypertension, stones, swelling, wrinkled skin
Pungent Lungs Cough, bleeding, thirst, loss of energy, impotence
Astringent Heart Anemia, low BP, insomnia, gas, constipation
Bitter Colin Constipation, Depleted Tissues, distension

So if our Intentions affect the outcome of things and our taste buds change what happens INSIDE our bodies, why would we want to bypass the biggest step in US healing our own selves? By being directly involved with the “making” of your herbal tea that will encourage healing within you, your intentions are that it will be healing and your sense of taste will start the healing while your tea is in your mouth.

Our cells are so smart, when we taste something, our bodies start to anticipate what will come next and secrete the proper mucus, hormone or what ever it is to facilitate what is about to happen. We fool our bodies with artificial sweeteners and then it fools us right back, but we don’t think it’s funny at all. The diet soda is “supposed” to help us lose weight but all it does is put the pounds on.

If a doctor was to say to you that they were going to give you a bag of herbs, all mixed for what is bothering you, or lets step this up a level, they hand you the bag of herbs and say, “this will save your life, follow my instructions”.

They proceed to tell you to take the mixture, get a measuring spoon, measure out one teaspoon of the herbal mixture and put it in a pan. Take one cup of purified water and add to the pan of water. Put it on the stove and boil it for 5 to 7 minutes. Pull it off and let it cool, filter the fluid to remove the sediment and take a certain amount, 1 hour before eating.

Could you follow those instructions?

Please don’t say “no” because honestly that is insulting…to YOU. I know 7 year olds that can follow these directions. No matter how it tastes or what a bother it feels like, I guarantee if it is helping your body will be anticipating it’s arrival and making it will become a habit.

It’s all about taking responsibility for your health and really living, being productive and feeling great.

And so I wonder if life has just gotten to easy because we look for the short cuts in everything we do. We have machines that do many of the chores we used to do manually and we have put our health into our Doctors hands. We need to put our health back into our own hands, because who knows you, better than you?

Your Doctor is certainly a partner in your wellness, we need to listen and at the same time take responsibility because the healer is not your doctor, the healer is inside of you.
