We are all unique expressions of Spirit (Source, God, Buddha, Collective Consciousness, etc) and our healing will take on unique symptoms for each individual. What might be true for one’s own experience, may not be the norm for someone else. Some individuals may not even experience healing symptoms. This is no way an indication that something isn’t being healed. Some people are just more sensitive to the energetic shifts than others.
Do not compare your experiences to another’s. Only be concerned with your own healing. Your Healing Journey is as unique as you are!
The healing crisis is nature’s way. It is the body itself that has the make-up and the materials that produce a crisis. It requires energy to have a crisis. It takes a reserve to go through a healing crisis, and the body will not produce it, unless it is able to go through with it.
We cannot put a new foundation in the body without first cleansing the body. This process is not always comfortable.
If there is a pile-up of waste accumulating, the immune system may decide it’s time to clean up. That can provoke a cold, or some other mucous discharge to flush out the obstruction. The body then calls in an army of bacteria to help dispose of the stuff.
During a healing crisis, toxins may be pulled out of body tissues and put back into the circulation to be eliminated. During this process, some uncomfortable symptoms may occur, such as:
- general fatigue
- pains and aches, such as headaches, low back pain, joint pain, etc.
- skin discharges, rashes, unusual sweating and body odors
- frequent urination, diarrhea or constipation
- fever, or feeling of coldness
- temporary cessation of menstruation, or decrease in sexual desire
- mental irritability, restless dreams, etc.
The healing crisis may last from a few hours to a few days; only in rare cases will it last a few weeks. The healthier our general condition, the fewer symptoms there will be. The more the body has to clean up, the stronger and/or longer the reactions will be.
They will also be more noticeable if the change in diet is abrupt, less so if it is gradual. During the healing process, the body brings back old diseases in reverse order, especially if these diseases have been suppressed through medication. It is like a movie seen backward. However, the eliminative processes bring back old issues in a way that inspires one to live an entirely different life. That way we are finished with the old way of living.
The healing crisis is different from the dis-ease process. Which is it being a blessing, and not a curse.
A healing crisis usually comes right after a person is feeling their best. Typically following a positive change in lifestyle, such as a better diet, a change in lifestyle (such as yoga, meditation, etc). There is a sense of well-being at the core during the healing crisis; meaning that deep down inside, it feels okay, while a sickness feels like something is definitely wrong.
Each healing crisis is followed by increased vitality and a greater feeling of well-being.
Be gentle with yourself, and honor what your body is doing in this transitional period. It will pass, and you will be feeling better than ever!
