A visitor's comment:
Hi, I came across Keith's story of tinnitus healing by chance!
I was moved by both Katherine's and Keith's understanding of ill health.
At this point having had tinnitus for 8 weeks I am not sure whether it is due to chronic ear infection which I was unaware of until December, or the stress of my personal and work life.
I have a faith in the God who heals but I also believe that illness is a symptom of a disconnect with something be it called the divine, the universe, whatever.
An issue I experience is those moments I lose hope that I will be well again.
I suppose my question is how do I hope for healing and minimise the moments of despair.
Your thoughts and prayers [for healing tinnitus] would be appreciated
Replies to the question are below.
I have also come across this excellent video relevant to having hope for healing.
It was sent just at a time when I needed it, and I share it in the hope that the same might be true for one of you.
It is from Kim D'Aramo, and shares a technique which combines the havening technique - a combination of somatics and EFT.
Note from Katherine T Owen
Dear Marie Louise,
I'm so sorry to hear about the tinnitus.
I agree with you that there are always multiple causes for tinnitus and all illness.
It may well be due to chronic ear infection.
It’s always a wonderful thing to reduce stress as it aids healing from any condition or illness.
And whatever we go through is always an invitation to become closer to God.
We can say a prayer to find purpose in illness...
The seeming reality of tinnitus (or whatever your condition or symptom is)
is pressing in on me right now.
Yet I know this changing world is not reality.
your certainty are reality.
What is this for?
How can I use this to draw closer to you?
I make sure to leave silence in my day to hear your answers.
I allow your peace to fill my mind and heart.
You ask how to hope for healing.
The first thing to say is that losing hope (or mislaying it) at times is natural.
It sounds contradictory to advice on how to hope for healing, but the approach I find most successful is to allow and embrace
the moments of hopelessness.
Carl Jung said, "What we resist persists". This is especially true of feelings.
When we feel our feelings of despair the feelings pass more quickly.
Here is some self talk to try:
If I feel hopeless right now, then I feel hopeless.
I love myself when I feel without hope of healing.
I love myself when I have hope of healing.
I love myself.
It's OK for me to feel concerned that this condition will carry on.
This is just a thought.
I am not this thought.
With this thought I may notice a feeling.
But I am not this feeling.
I am not this symptom.
Whatever symptom I experience, there is a deeper reality.
In reality I remain healthy and whole. I am held in God's love.
Like Katherine, I agree the tinnitus could be caused by a number of contributing factors.
However ALL of them are
symbolic representations of inner conditions or beliefs, no matter how
real and disconnected from you they may seem to be.
You and Katherine are correct... Stress is a MAJOR contributing factor, in every illness.
stress there would be a deeper connection to 'All that exists', or God,
simply because its opposite is Peace and Harmony, and its reflection in
the physical world would subsequently be a more Healthy expression of
the body you experience.
But then again stress offers us the chance of this conversation which is to be viewed as an opportunity for spiritual advancement.
Therefore the stress and any accompanying illness can be welcomed and understood.
Judgement is a negative energy stream whose consequence is chronic because it is the result of fear and mis-perception.
Understand and welcome ALL experience and the experience becomes positive and reflects the same vibration back to you.
(And of course in a place of rest, healing is more likely.)
Back to Keith:
is naturally reflective, therefore you minimise those moments of doubt when you focus on the image of the self you wish to experience.
focus on losing hope that you will be well again, the Universe, whose
language is vibration, not words, will interpret your fear as
'Oh, OK, she wants me to reflect more fear and illness into her experience...
No problem, I'm impartial... I can do that,
in fact that's all I do....reflect, reflect, reflect...'
and so it does.
Maintain your state of connection to all of existence.
Focus on it morning, noon and night.
Focus on the desired Healthy you, rather than acknowledging a specific illness which needs to be healed.
Only the Mind can be healed. The body is its reflection. Always remember that.
I want daily effort and a report on progress next week!
Blessings to you, Katherine, and all.
Katherine and Keith! Thank you for your words.
Keith your final words made me laugh out loud - a weekly report you shall get!
Cognitively I am struggling with aspects of the quantum physics paradigm but I am intrigued and I am consciously mulling over your words.
Interestingly it has occurred to me that focusing on wellness is something I should do more of.
And Katherine I am practising seeking what I can learn from
I am off work at the moment, returning in a fortnight and the
challenge will be to live my life differently..
The tinnitus is affecting my sleep in a big way but I am now calm unlike the first five weeks !!!!
Shall write again
