This is a healing story describing Shirley Knapp's journey with parasites and is not to be missed as it affects us all. Parasites are often the basis of many illnesses as they are called the "silent killers".
“Every soul has to withstand great pressure and to be well tested. Supposing the Master called upon you to do an important piece of work, which was going to involve many souls; and supposing you had not been tested and proved?
As I sit here and reflect upon this quote and my life over the past few months it brings new meaning to my recent experiences. I share this soul test now as I promised I would do so to help support anyone else going through this journey.
The reason I share this has to do with the fact that it can happen to anyone of us in our new global community. As we have all begun to travel more globally and import more food, we are also sharing many new diseases, which are being called the “21st century diseases”.
My journey began this summer after having discovered that I had an acute case of intestinal parasites, which I had been hosting for over seven years after traveling to Africa. Parasites are called “The Silent Killers” as they do just that.
Their main objective is to live in your body and hide where they have access to the most food, which is in the intestines, colon and brain. They slowly deteriorate the organs they reside in. I found out there are over 800 species of parasites and 70% of them are microscopic and can’t been seen with the naked eye. In my case, over time they masked the symptoms of menopause, which I had been faithfully accepting as part of the “Change”.
The difficulty is in the detoxing of these parasites as you can only detox them slowly because if you kill them too fast, you become more poisoned yourself as they die. The first person on my journey told me that I would have to take six weeks off my life to rest and detox. I immediately said “I can’t do that, I am a single, self-employed mom with a daughter in college!” She told me that if I didn’t do this it could be fatal. So the detox slowly began.
The faith test got deeper as I slowly went into the fog of detox. I bless my family and friends who had the patience to watch me struggle for my life as I felt I was doing battle on all levels of my existence. There were some moments that I wasn’t sure who would win. I now have more compassion for those clients who come to me and feel their lives are hopeless. I felt attacked on all levels and didn’t have the physical strength to fight back. I trusted my spiritual guidance and received a new level of faith. I continue to bless my experience and this I knew was the most important thing to do to finally release it. I chose the route of both Western and holistic healing as these critters reproduce at rapid speeds and while you eliminate the first generation, the next one comes along.
I have focused my teachings on “Transforming Fear into Self Empowerment”
And find that anything fearful in your life is indeed parasitical and is taking the top off your creative energy force. It is important to change the fear and make lemonade out of the lemons, which I am in the process of doing and will continue to do. I am coming out of the other side of the fog and looking at my life from a different, yet stronger way and helping others who are in the same place. I am passing the soul test of what the old Vermonters call “Tough Sleddin!”
