Vows and Our Health

Question: Kelley, I recently did a healing for a friend who is suffering from appendicitis-like symptoms. My question is in relation to what I saw and removed, which was a shiny silver jeweled dagger, about 8 -10 inches long. It was not a black dart, which is a block what I usually see in the back. Have you any explanation for what it represents, and why or how it got there? Jennifer, from Australia


Hi Jennifer. The form that energy takes is highly individual, and yet often we do tap into collective representations of life force, thus the symbols it shows us. Often in shamanic work staves, knives, or other sharp objects embedded in the form represent a curse or vow that is lingering, stifling the person’s life force. This is a common perception of a block in life force, and it is one that I, personally, have seen many times. It is very astute of you to factor into your work that this one appeared distinct from such items as you have found in the past. I ask to speak with the knife in question, and it shows me that in some other life pattern the individual acquired this knife from a beloved who had died, and placed that knife in her form, herself. I feel the guise of it being placed there for “love” is why it appeared differently to you, as well as the fact that an actual knife had inflicted harm in that area. The knife you saw wasn’t just a symbol of a lingering block, but was actually still there, etherically speaking. Nonetheless, the knife had (prior to your work) become an impediment in her present. I do hear what the exact vow was that was made and how it relates to her present, but I do not feel I can share that without the individual’s consent. I can say that though the knife is gone, the resulting wound bears more work.

Curses and vows are immensely significant to our health. A vow is the only one who fully brings them into the being is the one taking the vow or being cursed. Certainly others can hold power over us, but only when we allow it. For this reason bringing a multi-dimensional approach to healing is important.

We don’t often remember the ill-made promises “never to forgive,” or “to forever remember this pain.” Frankly, we don’t always have to remember them, if we can be comfortable with letting go of the imbalance, itself. Sometimes, though, we need the mental recollection of symbols to bring order to how we are perpetuating resulting patterns in the present. It is through an intimate knowledge of our own mythology and remaining open to collective consciousness that we can process these symbols and release them.

Until we understand the spiritual source of the wound, the wound can’t truly heal. Once we open ourselves to that information, psychology around the physical ailment releases, enabling healing on all levels. Understanding that cycle, and its nonlinear nature, is key to being creators of our own wellbeing. I wish you the best in your healing practice, Jennifer!

Motion, Truth, and Fun

Question:  Kelley, I am writing this note to you for B (my brother), who was in a car accident a few years ago, and is classified as an incomplete quad, which is great because ‘incomplete’ means the Dr.’s don’t have a clue as to whether he will walk again…. But there is a definite chance.  What do you see? ~J

Thanks for your note!  My immediate feeling moving into the Dreamtime is that B can walk again, but the limitations on that ability are not about his physical condition at all; rather, they are completely emotional.  I have the sense of a huge backlogue of feelings that were never permitted to be interpreted into emotions, that is, feelings that have never been expressed.  They are presenting themselves in great part as a “weight” on the physical form, keeping it from moving about freely.  I literally have the feeing that he has had to be made still to deal with some aspects of his past.  I feel a tremendous sadness moving into my Lower World, which was there well before the car crash.  I am led by a soul aspect of B to a skeleton lying on the ground.  The skeleton has been severed in two, such that the spine is cut separating the lower two chakras from the rest of the system.  I notice also that the two severed points of the spine are capped with blue sapphires, which is an indicator of B’s connections to a multi-dimensional heritage and life purpose.  In other words, he is an earthly manifestation of a group of ethereal allies who are spiritual anchors for work he does here.  I also feel that the sapphires are very active but not at their highest potential.  When I touch the sapphires, the upper portion of the skeleton raises up and greets me.  He refers to the sapphires, saying, “I see you found my antenna…  I guess I wasn’t really using it anyway, so it may as well be unusable now…”  His response is very flippant, but I also feel a lot of disappointment in himself for so many events that occurred before the car crash that it’s overwhelming for me to feel it all.  He is carrying tremendous guilt, more than any one person should ever shoulder, and more than is possible for anyone to carry and be well.  I pick the skeleton up and with the soul aspect of B who is leading me, I take the skeleton (both parts) up for healing.

The skeletal manifestation of B gains healthy flesh.  I see him engaged with several soulbody workers in what looks like cosmic physical therapy on his new form, and the life force in his body moves well.  He looks over his shoulder at myself and the soul aspect and nods, grinning.  I move back down into my Lower World, holding space for who can give B the best insight in how to move forward in his life right now to come.  After a few seconds, I see about 40 souls come, each of them looking exactly like B.  I know this is his soulgroup coming to show support for him and to reconnect with him.  I have a strong impression of otherworldly or intuitive experiences that B has had throughout his life that he either did not pay attention to, or did not process as such, which stunted the development of his abilities and manifesting his life purpose.  I also feel that the unexpressed emotion I felt at the beginning of this journey is related to not honoring his intuitive abilities.  It seems that B chose to manifest on Earth the first time many lives ago, and was very excited about doing so.  He was in touch with his soulgroup and they were communicating, bringing things into being…  then the weight of 3D living began to wear down his exuberance.  Manifesting his soul’s intent began to be expressed through lives as a monk or priest, the socially accepted spiritual leaders of the day, whose lives were rote and incredibly unstimulating.  This planetary shift of souls into heavier density left B feeling that living his truth could only be done by carrying great burdens and through intense sacrifice. His excitement to grow here abated.  In short, over lives B encoded into himself the pattern that living his truth could not be fun.  The early years of this life were the result of a conscientious rebellion against that hard-nosed philosophy that resulted in having so much fun on the material plane, his connection to his soulgroup, thus life purpose, was abandoned.

Except that it wasn’t.  There really is no such thing as straying off one’s path.  The euphemism of ‘straying’ is only a mechanism to draw one’s awareness more clearly back to the fact that we create our paths with every step.  There is no more sacrifice.  It’s time for B to remember that he has always had the support of his soulgroup and the Multiverse!  In honoring that support he credits himself as a vital part of the whole process.  This process is about movement of the soul, which is the foundation for releasing stored up feelings.  For B to find the kind of energy workers who can help in that releasing process will be his first step in this life back to himself.  And I do mean step.

Be well!

Spiritually Preparing for Surgery

Good afternoon, My name is Josée. I am scheduled for surgery on June 23 2004 and am getting quite nervous. Any insight on your part would be great. Thank you! Josée

Hi Josée. Thanks for your note! Upon asking your guides about this surgery, I see that you are very much protected and cared for. I see 7 spirits, guides and loved ones who are in the spirit world now, attending you through this period. They literally, physically assist your body in remembering healthy function, and assist your soul in facilitating its own reconnection to the body after surgery. Not only does the body have its unique connection to your soul and Higher Power, but every individual cell does. Many people with Hyperhidrosis condition also suffer from excessive hand sweating. It is at this level of awareness that you must be at this time. Surgery affects not just the physical, but the etheric body, which is the term I use to summarize the entire manifestation of a creature that is in this realm, and simultaneously is in other realms. Where surgery alters the physical form, particularly when things are removed from it, that etheric body part still remains needing care and acknowledgement.

Take great care to be as present as you can during this time, doing a great deal of affirming self-talk. Now more than ever you must co-create with your Higher Power your place of health. The part of you that is one with All That Is creates your existence. How you speak is very important to how you think and view yourself, as how you view yourself is the way you manifest in your life. You must manifest as the light creature that you are, but before you can do that, you must KNOW that you are that light creature. Pay attention to how you talk to your Higher Power. Instead of asking for outcomes (Please let my surgery go well) and focusing on things you feel you don’t have, (Please give me strength), focus on the innate soul qualities that you possess, and ALWAYS HAVE POSSESSED. When you ask for things, the emphasis is on the asking, the LACK of having, not the receiving. Not acknowledging what you already have as one of Spirit comes out as a lack of faith that you already embody what you need. You know that you are already high on the list of priorities of your Higher Power. You don’t have to ask for that. But do acknowledge it, so that you can fully manifest your health. You can manifest those soul qualities by changing how you speak, which changes how you think. For instance, in your meditative state, you might say, “With my Higher Power’s assistance I command my natural strength manifest in my life.” Or simply, “Thank you for my good health and wellness.” In both of those statements, rather than coming from a place of want or desparation, the emphasis is on honoring and acknowledging what you already have. The emphasis is on faith in yourself and your Higher Power.

Actively call on your guides and Higher Power to help you hold yourself in the highest place that you can for healing to occur. Particularly after surgery, take great care to ask your guides and Higher Power to send light to the surgery area. Visualize the color of the light, letting the color be whatever it needs to be. Let the light fill your body, and see it doing so.

I see you after surgery, incredibly renewed, in a way that changes your perspective on how you live. I see a shift in your approach to physical health, but also in how you look at life and feel about it. In one regard, this shift manifests for you in an artistic expression. I see you working with elements, literally earth and water–clay–putting this new perspective into creations that you share with the world. This artistic expression is one way you touch the lives of others, passing on this bright perspective. In this creative act, there is also the message that you know how to nourish yourself on all levels. You know how to live well, which is truly a rare thing. Celebrate it! You are in my thoughts, Josée. Everything is fine. =)

Life in the Mirror

Hi Kelley, Your work sounds interesting and is very unusual. I have two questions. Are you able to tell me if my Dad is ok? Secondly, I seem to be unable to extricate myself emotionally from a man who was never very good for me. Why this might be? And, why do I have such hard time establishing and maintaining relationships? Thank you. J.

Hi J. Thanks for your note. I have the sense that your father is comfortable with his choice, and is prepared for what lies ahead of him. I am not entirely clear on what that choice is, or what that means, but I see him in a very restful state, and surrounded with his creature comforts.

When I inquire about the relationship and not taking your power back from it, I see you standing before a mirror. When you touch the mirror is moves under your hands as a liquid, and sticks to your fingers like a salve when you pull away from it. Life happens behind you, but you are more fascinated with the mirror. Some quality of this man feeds your security of always only looking in the mirror and observing life, not fully actively participating in it. In other words, this man did not encourage you to life freely and grow in life’s experiences. It is certainly safe to live that way for a time, but safety eventually becomes constricting and self-limiting. This man is another mirror for you–another thing to lose yourself in and not be encouraged to grow. The total focus only on the mirror is the result of a hurt that was done to you. Remaining focused only on the mirror has sheltered you from really deeply connecting in relationships. The time that you can be sheltered has gone. The healing you need isn’t going to be found in the mirror, or in people-mirrors who would keep you from living your true Self. Your healing will be found in yourself, and in the company you seek to that end. You have an animal guide very ready to help you make this transition. There is a black bear with you, who tells me that he brings you the ability to stand with the resilience and peace of a mountain, as well with the incisiveness to move through survival to blissful connection with Nature… as yourself. Be well, J!
