So much of this journey to awareness has had to do with spiritual healing. Some issues have been about buried pain and I realized that early on -- I am a Vietnam War widow. Some of the deepest issues are slowly being resolved through my blog for Vietnam veterans by the sharing of feelings and experiences; however, I know we're never done healing. To be honest, I wondered what spiritual healing reallych exists beyond any physical realm". is, and if what I'm going through is spiritual healing.

What is meant when we use the word "spirit", as in spiritual healing? I did a search on Google to see what I could find. I uncovered many names for spirit: life-force, soul, awareness, beingness, but all of them seem so vague -- and all of them were invisible, too. I think the best description I found for spirit was, "that whi

Okay, if this is what our spirit is, then what is spiritual healing? It seems to be a goal for all spiritual practices, traditions and religions. I also found that it's something all spiritual seekers, in one way or another, are "searching" for. I also learned that when we carry the wounds with us from being hurt from our past experiences and situations, our spiritual awakening, our spiritual growth, can slow down, or even stop until we recognize, face, and make peace with the hurt. This makes sense. I know Dinahh often disappears for awhile and when he finally makes contact again, he tells me there are things that only I can find the answers to and he must allow me to do that for myself.

Okay, so on to the next question: how do we know if we need spiritual healing? After all, our spiritual growth, our awakening, is an intimate, quiet, and uniquely personal journey. How do we as human beings, recognize when we need spiritual healing? Do our symptoms manifest themselves in physical sickness? Emotional sickness?

I asked for Dinahh's guidance, wary he might tell me again that I ask too many questions that I already have the answers for, if I would just search inside for them -- but I was pleasantly surprised. He graciously shared a few things. He told me that symptoms blocking awareness and growth can be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. They can be profound and noticeable to everyone around us, or they can be so subtle that they are only noticeable to the person who needs to heal. But going from spiritual "sickness" to a state of spiritual "wellness" is the main goal of spiritual awakening and growth in this lifetime.

Dinahh said spiritual healing is a deep, fundamental change in how we view ourselves, the world, and God. Spiritual healing lifts a person above themselves, so they are able to see everything from a new perspective.

Dinahh: "To begin spiritual healing, start with changing the filters that block true nature from coming through. Negative emotions are the most important filters -- fear, hate, jealousy, and anger. These must be replaced with positive emotions -- grattitude, love, patience, kindness. The negative emotions can be replaced with positive emotions by simply watching what you think and say."

Okay, so I guess he was saying that the more positive and uplifting our words are, the more positive and uplifting our thoughts and emotions will become. The positive will grow and the negative will fall away and this will better allow our true nature to come through.

Dinahh: "Catherine, you must write this: be sure spiritual healing does not come from outside practices. Yes, others can be paid to adjust energy fields and auras, people can surround themselves with crystals, and a house can be filled with all of the scents in the world, but none of it will heal the inner anger, fear, and hate that torment a soul. You cannot “buy” spiritual healing. These unconscious wounds can only be healed by facing their origins and making peace with them. You already know this. You are already on your healing journey of discovery. Everything is as it should be. I will go now."

***Thank you, Dinahh.
