Most of us seek out inner healing for obvious reasons. We’re tired of over reacting to our triggers, tired of our past affecting our present, and we just want greater freedom.
Those are superb reasons and if there were no other benefits to emotional healing than those, it would still be worth a lifelong pursuit. But the advantages don’t stop there. I wanted to bring up some other perks that seem to be overlooked. I’ve been pondering 3 John 1:2 where the condition of your soul is linked with health and prosperity. “Prosper and be in health even (or in proportion to) as your soul prospers.” For years I assumed that was talking about spiritual prosperity and I sort of skipped right over the health part. Sounds like a nice churchy blessing that rolled right off of me.
When someone told me that the prosper part of that was actually about money I was pretty skeptical. After all, there are many ways to be prosperous without having anything to do with money. So I looked it up. It actually says in Strong’s that the Greek word means “to succeed in business affairs.”
It’s also easy to dismiss that verse as merely greetings and salutations, which it is, along the lines of how we might write, “I hope this letter finds you well.” However, in my experience with my two businesses, I’m having a hard time dismissing this correlation between our soul, our health and our money.
What I have come to understand, is that the condition of our soul (that’s our mind, will and emotions) has a direct bearing on our physical health as well as our ability to be successful.
I run two businesses. One has to do with inner healing, and the other helps spiritual entrepreneurs get their businesses going. In Dream Ventures, my business class, I’ve noticed a very distinct correlation between a person’s level of “wholeness” and their ability to be successful. An unhealed person with skills, abilities and the knowledge of what to do to be successful is no match for the one who has none of those things but doesn’t have emotional triggers hanging them up. Therefore, we spend some time on healing before we ever get into how to market their business.
It’s not that God magically blesses you as a result of getting healed. It’s that you’re already blessed, but because of wounds, you let the blessing slip through your fingers.
When you’re wounded or operating out of trauma, you fail to recognize opportunities when they present themselves, you let fear make your decisions for you, and you may have some blocks that prevent you from receiving. And if you feel undeserving or guilty, and you do manage to receive something, those negative feelings will make sure you get rid of the blessing as soon as you can.
Fear of failure, fear of success, fear of the unknown, fear of responsibility, being in the spotlight, fear of being held to a higher standard due to a leadership position or public scrutiny, or fear of what success might due to your relationships will all unconsciously work to sabotage your efforts. You might make progress and move forward despite fear, but it will never have the same effect as moving forward truly free.
In my other business, I use flower essences, which are not the same as essential oils to heal emotional disturbances. In the effort to clear up things like anxiety, depression and trauma, people were reporting physical problems were resolving as well. Flowers heal via frequencies, there is no biochemical means of them doing anything to a person’s physical body, so it has to be through addressing the emotional roots of the illness. Almost any chronic condition is going to have emotional roots to it.
Now we’re beginning to understand that certain emotions have an affinity for certain organs, and if the emotions go unaddressed, they get stored. Alice uses Splankna to find where the emotion settled in the body, so that it can be discharged which gives the organs and bodily systems the opportunity to recover.
Handling emotions before they manifest as chronic issues or disease is smart. And if they’ve already manifested as illness, you can pull the plug on the emotion that’s fueling the issues, which will turbo charge any treatments or health protocols you’re following to get better. In addition, you’ll have more peace in your daily life.
Mysterious medical conditions and autoimmune disorders such as Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis are often associated with early traumas. Alice’s sister was healed of fibromyalgia via Splankna.
Cancer often will have a root of unforgiveness, anger or bitterness. Here’s my entire post on cancer and emotions. I encourage you not to let your emotional baggage take you down so far that your life is in danger. There are myriad methods of emotional healing out there, so find one that resonates for you.
This one thing, the pursuit of emotional healing, will pay dividends into your bank account, your destiny, your physical health and your relationships. Let’s prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper!
