Did you ever wonder why the word holistic
isn't spelled wholistic? Now, any well versed, new age, conscious
person would assure you that there are no accidents. In fact, the W or
double you, is what you are when you choose to experience duality.
Duality is the manifestation of feeling split off from the oneness or
perfection. It is a state whereby your soul chooses to be blind to your
oneness so that you may experience the many. Ego manifests in the state
In duality there is a perception of
opposites, such as good and bad, inside and outside, black and white and
what we are verses what we are not. Duality can be a very rich
experience, allowing us to live with love and light, as well as to know
darkness and fear. In darkness we can experience various ways of feeling
incomplete. This split from perfection is purposeful in that it allows
us to know a vast spectrum of emotions which promote development of a
deep sense of appreciation and gratitude. For example, war can teach us
to desire peace and pain can teach us compassion and appreciation for
wellness, a state which could otherwise be easily taken for granted.
Within the blindness of duality there
sometimes exists a perception that God is external and therefore
separate from us. There also exists a perception that we are separate
from each other. How else could you experience the many, if not to see
another outside of yourself. Hence, the two of you, you and the other,
as well as the split you, your higher or God self and your ego, can both
be seen as the double you, which is part of the whole human
In spite of our perception that these
apparent doubles, which are created out of our soul choice to experience
external duality are real, the underlying fact is that there is only
ONE of us. There is only ONE, indivisible, singular Spirit that
manifests as mind and body. To feel truly healthy and whole requires us
to understand and internalize the ultimate human paradox that ALL IS
It seems in vogue these days for
traditional health practitioners to refer to themselves as Holistic
Healers. With that title has come a prevailing understanding that
the word holistic means respect for the trinity of body, mind and
Spirit. The word holistic actually has a larger meaning.
carries with it the understanding that ALL, mind, body, and Spirit, IS
ONE single expression.
In other words, what appears outside of us is
really just a physical reflection of what is inside of us.
It implies an
understanding that an illness in the body can be seen as an expression
of a thought, belief or perception. It implies the recognition of a causal connection between feeling,
thought, perception and the manifestation of physical reality. When
there is illness, the individual, whose Spirit is actually in a state of
perfection or completeness, owning all the power to manifest wellness, is
choosing to see itself in a temporary state of powerless imperfection,
as a victim of its illness, rather than acknowledging that he or she
might in some energetic way be contributing to the cause of the illness.
In this case the actual ONE causal self and the perceived victim self
constitute two selves, or the double you.
To a spiritual
healer a physical problem in the body is seen as a signal of the
contents of the energy field, mind and heart. A true holistic healer
recognizes that fixing the body is not the whole answer but rather might be a
partial solution to a larger process. Holistic healing often requires
additional complimentary approaches to healing the deeper root of the
physical problem. My holistic energy field readings often indicate to me
that the energetic root of a physical problem can lie simply in being
stuck in the hidden limiting dualistic perception of the double you that
feels separate from your divine creative power.
Restrictions in the field that emerge out of dualistic thinking show themselves in physical form in unlimited creative ways.
For example, fears that are given the power to control our decisions in
life, often show themselves as aches, pains and weakness in the body.
Pain can be the body's way of signaling a reminder to us that we
have the power to overcome fear and feelings of limitation rather than become a servant to
them. Pain, in essence,
becomes a messenger that lights up hidden beliefs of separation from
divine mind, thereby signaling us
to correct the misperception and re-affirm the One Spirit. In this way the body plays a very important
part in helping to remind us who we really are. Fixing the body without picking up the
spiritual message of unity can challenge the
body to turn up the volume of pain.. To eliminate the perception of the
double you, or W, is in effect the path of holistic healing back to the
manifestation of divine creative power and health.
