Over the next few articles, we’re going to talk about the body’s healing intelligences.
Let’s begin by the premise that there’s a healing intelligence that exists within our body. This intelligence is the difference between a live body and one that is no longer living.
When we cut our finger, we do not have to tell our finger to heal. It does so own it’s own. The body signals to it’s cells that we are injured and the correct pathways take place to clot the wound and begin the healing process. All these reactions take place automatically without us having to think about them.
Could you imagine if we had to think about each and every process going on in our body? I.e. heart beating, lungs breathing, stomach digestion, elimination ,etc? We wouldn’t survive too long if that were the case.
Depending on the organism involved, healing requires different levels and organizations of intelligence. This means that a single celled organism requires less intelligence than mammals and then humans. Whereas a single celled organism is responsible for basic functions, mammals have emotions and instincts and humans require even higher intelligence for complex thought and free will.
The healing intelligences in our body are: bio-energetic, emotional, lower thought, upper thought, soul and universal. Over the next several articles, we’ll go through these in detail.
Intelligences are resources that you have at your disposal. Each person has unique abilities within the healing intelligences. Some people may be gifted in the emotional intelligence and have a wide range of emotions that they are able to experience and take action from, while others may lack that ability to make quick change.
When you are aware of which your intelligences work best for you and where you are challenged, you can creating healing in your life on many levels.

Are your days busy and filled with appointments and to-do lists? If they were anything like mine were, then there’s not much room for anything else.
I used to have most of my days planned from the moment I wake up (washroom, make lunch, meditate, journal, gym, work, cook, bed etc.) to when I go to sleep at night. At some point, I started to get tired and bored of my same old routine.
It wasn’t until I wrote my own eulogy (come to our advanced workshop on writing your eulogy) that I realized that I didn’t have any room for fun, spontaneity, and miracles in my life. These were important values to me and I had left no where in my schedule for them. How could they occur if there was no time for them?
From then on, I decided to re-arrange my schedule. Instead of a to-do list that was a mile long, I would pick 1 priority task for the day. If I got my 1 priority done accomplished, I would feel like I had made progress. I also made sure to do that priority early in the morning so the rest of the day wasn't spent worrying about it.
I started to place the people I interacted with ahead of the tasks that I wanted to do. Whereas before I was thinking about a clock and what I had to do next, I was now listening for times when I could have more fun or connect more with someone in a conversation.
Make a list of all the important things in your life i.e. your family, relationships, your career, fun, your health, etc. Do you schedule these into your day? Do you leave opportunities for miracles to happen in your day?

I recently had the experience of throwing a temper tantrum which allowed me to observe myself and laugh.
I was mowing the lawn and I have allergies to grass. This is often frustrating as I would mow then sneeze, continue mowing and sneezing, trying at the same time not to run over the lawn mower cord and then getting frustrated and trying to mow faster so I could stop sneezing sooner. I’m sure my neighbours find it comical to watch me when I cut the lawn.
On this one occasion, the weather was hot outside and I was sweating. My sneezing was very frequent and I had managed on several occasions to get the cord tangled...and then I had it. I threw my arms in the air and exclaimed that I was never going to mow the lawn again. I stomped off into the house and got some water and came back out.
After cooling down a bit, I continued to do the lawn and was left with a tangled mess of a cord. After finishing, I opened my garage door, put away the lawn mower and threw the tangled mess of a cord on the floor. I texted my husband and told him that there was a tangled cord on the garage floor when he got home and he was not to ask questions about it but to put it away...
I wanted to throw the lawn mower over the fence and just get rid of it...too bad it’s quite heavy.
After calming down (again), I was able to laugh at myself. I had just had a temper tantrum. I realised also that I was blaming an inanimate object for my situation. How is it that my lawn mower could be responsible for my allergies to grass?
When you’re mind is in an overly emotional state, you don’t always make the best choices. Another lesson, I was looking for something (lawn mower) to blame for my situation.
Do you ever find yourself reacting emotionally and then laughing? Comment below and let me know.
As most of you know, I attended a conference for Chronic Illness in San Francisco in April. There, I learned some of the latest treatment protocols and strategies for helping patients with chronic illness. One of the topics that were covered by several presenters was EMF’s (electromagnetic fields) and their effects on the body.
There seems to be a general consensus that EMF’s negatively affect the behaviour of microbes (our body is made up of lots and lots of microbes) and ultimately influence recovery from chronic illness. It is proposed that EMF’s causes microbes in the body to feel as if they are under attack and they respond by creating more biotoxins. This, in turns, leads to patients feeling more symptoms.
Below were some recommendations for reducing EMFs in the home and work environment. While it may not be possible for you to work without computer or the internet, there are ways to reduce your exposure.
For more information, you can hear Dr. Klinghardt (MD, PhD) talk about EMF’s and their effects on health here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwNYgmk--w0
How long does it take you to make a decision? Minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, etc? Nope, decisions actually happen in an instant. It make take you longer to analyse your variables but the actual decision is made in an instant.
Sometimes we hem and haw over making a decision and then we put off the decision because it’s easier to do so. This does not mean that we don’t have what we need at the moment to make a decision. Sometimes, if we have too much information, we may suffer from analysis paralysis. This is where we spend so much time analyzing that we are overwhelmed by the amount of information we have and we can’t make a decision.
A quick way to come up with a quick decision is to imagine that someone was offering you a million dollars to make your decision right now, you’d be able to make it. You would just pick an option and then deal with what came next when it came. Same process would work if someone held a gun to your head to do something. You would find a way to do something.
You decide in an instant. Forgiveness is a decision, losing weight is a decision, being healthy is a decision.
What have you put off making a decision on? Putting something off takes a lot of energy in your body. It also creates tension. Now imagine if you had 10 things that you were putting off making decisions on? What if you had decisions accumulated over years and years? How much energy would this required?
Choose now to make a decision on something and comment below after you have made your decision. How does it feel?
