Physician Heal Thyself – A New Journey of Healing
My process of healing high blood pressure.
The phrase alludes to the readiness and ability of physicians to heal sickness in others while sometimes not being able or willing to heal themselves. This suggests something of ‘the cobbler always wears the worst shoes’, i.e. cobblers are too poor and busy to attend to their own footwear. It also suggests that physicians, while often being able to help the sick, cannot always do so and, when sick themselves, are no better placed than anyone else. http://www.phrases.org.uk
A trip in an ambulance and a visit to the A&E dept has set me off on another avenue of healing. I had a nose bleed that wouldn’t stop and subsequently treated for high blood pressure, with medication. Some would say it’s not surprising living in Quake-ville, but I was told that my condition has been ongoing for some time. Of course I’ve had a lot of stress the past few years, but it’s deeper than that. I am off for a round of tests and specialists.
I felt a bit of a fraud, not being able to heal myself, and said I felt like the cobbler and his children. So just when I got my business to a point where I can relax, this happens.
I loved being tended to by doctors and nurses, after all they know what they’re doing and I am not about to go against what they have advised me. Being a medical phobe I kicked myself for being in such denial, but I was told I had caught it early and my nose bleed was a blessing in disguise.
I wondered how I am being confronted with cholesterol and diabetes checks, when I have a crazy healthy diet. My father and I are on a plant based diet, and I have the occasional meat and chicken. The ED doctor told me that as a species we have moved on beyond being plant based, and that my medication is plant based. Of course everything that came out of his mouth when I was morphined up made a lot of sense. Doctors have a lot of power in our society.
It got me thinking, so I offer all this healing for others, which works well, but do I really really believe I can help myself? I hoped I could when I had bugger all money to my name and wasn’t able to afford to see anyone, but now I’m better off, I can see other practitioners, afterall they can heal my blind spots that I can’t see.
But still, can I heal myself?
So I took to the Body Code by Dr Bradley Nelson and asked if there was an underlying reason for me believing that I wasn’t able to heal myself and cleared that. Then I focused on my blood pressure. I released an inherited trapped emotion that was from my father’s father’s father of helplessness. It wasn’t for a while later that I realised he had died in a house fire. Gee talk about hot blood. Then I cleared out a post hypnotic suggestion that was around Doctors telling me I don’t have the power to heal myself. All those off hand comments that really do affect you.
It’s hard to maintain my beliefs when faced with critical decisions, especially when I’m out of my comfort zone and not around like minded people. I wondered how I could incorporate both worlds, which I will do for a time while clearing out the emotional issues that contribute to my blood pressure.
I will look at other alternatives as well, but perhaps now’s the time to really believe in the healing that I do and put it to the test for myself.
