Holistic Approach To Healing Mind
Body & Spirit
By Alison Stormwolf
To my mind, to really understand healing, the causes of illness and the ways to cure involve the acceptance of the totality of the human body as consisting of several inter-penetrating layers of energy - each one vibrating at a different frequency and each one directly connected to other realms of existence that deal with that level of vibration.
Yogic philosophy talks of 'Koshas' which mean sheaths. In their philosophy there are five koshas... in others there are seven layers. We can like ourselves to an onion. Each Kosha is directly related to the chakra subtle energy wheels of power in our subtle bodies.
It has been my personal experience to validate this. See Astral Travelling & Out Of Body Experiences. This has allowed me to understand about illness and how it relates to imbalances and blockages in the subtle energy bodies.
I work on that level to address problems on those levels. By the time it has filtered down into your physical, it has been around you for a while.
You may also have had many warnings from your higher self too in the form of dreams (see Dream Analysis), or in anxiety states and depression, which to my thinking are usually caused by a 'damming up' of energy in certain subtle bodies that act as warning signs to our 'selves', and if we do not listen to the whisperings of our spirits or if we drown them out with alcohol, food, work, sex or whatever your chosen avenue of escape is, it harms the physical organism in the end.
Our physical body exists in the grosser, denser realms but we have other bodies that co-exist and are outside and larger than the physical. Different schools of thought claim different levels or names for these bodies, but they are basically agreeing to what mystics and clairvoyants have known for many hundreds of years.
This photo of me taken, with a very ordinary web cam, shows my aura in amazing clarity. As you can see, it starts off as a sort of gold colour and then changes to light purple. These are the colours of the crown chakra and it is most unusual to see the aura being caught on ordinary film like this.
It also demonstrates the outward levels of being that exist.
When I scan a person prior to a healing session I feel this energy field through my hands which can sense how far away or close to the body it lies (depending on many things),
Illness, lack of vitality and spiritual enlightenment affect the emanations of the subtle bodies and this is what I gauge my healing on.
Taking Responsibility For Your Own Health
The question, "do you really WANT to be healed?" elicits the strong response,"Of course I want to be healed!"
But, before rushing in with this answer, it pays to examine your
lifestyle, your relationships, your place of work, your home environment...
in fact, everything pertaining to YOU.
I speak about certain ways of being healed in my Reiki and Crystal Healing pages.
In the western world, we do not want to make any sacrifices. We
are basically spoiled. OK, that's not true? When was the last time
YOU had to walk for 20 miles to collect drinking water to carry
home to your family? (Africa)
How would it be if your baby was aborted by lethal injection at
eight months gestation by government officials because you already
have a child? (Happening as we read, in China)
We have become horribly complacent. We look to others to instill
values in our children, support us if we feel we have been "traumatised"
by events, protect our "rights!"
Would you really want to be healed of what ailed you if you were
told you MUST stop smoking / drinking / hating the person who "ripped
Healing is not as we view it in the west. You have a complaint...
you go to the doctor... he gives you a prescription. ... and if
that does not work? Well, he does not know his job, does he?
The Holistic View Of Healing - Mind, Body & Spirit
Healing, (as a very good friend of mine expresses), is a 'co-creative
ritual'. In other words, to really desire deep healing is not a
passive decision. It requires active participation on your part!
It is easy to sneer at Christian conventions when somebody seems
to be miraculously 'cured' of their ailment. I have no doubt at
all that they were! Trouble is, they have then to "walk out
their healing" That means they have to re-affirm every day
(affirmation) that the illness has gone (positive thinking) and
make the necessary life changes in thinking, attitude, thanksgiving
and habits to ensure it does not return. (lifestyle changes)
Instead of doing that... they look on it like so many other things
as a 'quick fix' and when the symptoms return... they feel righteous
I have thought long and hard about such matters. I have to (as
the Buddhists recommend) take the middle road in everything here.
I do believe we are responsible for a huge amount of ill health
we bring upon ourselves through wrong thinking, acting, eating,
However, I always steer away from those who claim to have all the
answers. So many children suffer in different ways. So many loving
people do too. I am simply saying that in healing we have to take
as active a part in our own recovery as possible. I do not, nor
would ever, add to somebody's misery by stating that their illness
is 'all their own fault!' It simply is not always so.
Just as there are several different energy bodies inter-penetrating
one another - emotional body, mental body, etc; so healing can take
place predominantly in one body. However, due to the inter-connectiveness
of the entire organism, any healing affects the other bodies. If
it is sufficiently powerful, it will heal through resonanace. If
it is not powerful enough? It will gradually re-assume the level
before the healing vibration.
The mystics of old, the saints, the 'special people' we read about
were no different to us. I always enjoyed reading the biographies
of so many of them. Most were anything but 'saintly' in their younger
lives. What they all share was that they were 'overcomers.' Not
necesserily of the world, not necesserily of their physical health...
but ALWAYS of themselves.
Wake up and claim that magnificence as your own!

This is known as the phantom
leaf phenomenon, It may prove that an energy body
exists even after the physical body is destroyed,
hence the existence of some ghosts. This might explain
why most people can still feel a limb after an amputation.
There are certain conditions where conventional medicine is not
the answer. Sickness in the soul cannot be cured by pills. If we
accept that the human being is a spirit within a body then we are
more able to understand spiritual ailments. I believe that the person
is made up of several 'bodies', each one of a finer vibrational
energy than the other.
This is the basis of many different forms of 'holistic' healing.
By the time an illness has worked its way into the denser physical
level, we have probably had it for a while. Ever notice how a large
energy depletion often precedes the flu?
When we are very involved with someone, we form psychic ties to
that person. These can be good. In an equally loving relationship
there is a two-way street of loving, supportive energy to the person
most in need. If this becomes unbalanced, the needy person can sap
all the energy out of the giver. This is termed Psychic Vampirism.
It sounds dramatic but it is very common.
It can also be dramatically demonstrated by Kirlian
photography, which captures the electromagnetic field round
our bodies on film.
My Personal Healing Experience
At one time in my life I came to a sudden stop. A series of life events following some years of intense struggle and heartache. had left me so depleted that one day I did not really have the energy to get out of bed.
A very traumatic experience of loss left me feeling like half of me was missing. It was just like I was bleeding to death on the subtle realm and I felt like I had quite literally been torn in half!
I needed to find someone who understood and could help, and I was
guided to just such a person. Jason maintains that almost all my
life force had left me and it was such a relief to be able to explain
exactly how I was feeling and to know that not only did he understand,
but, being a vibrational healer, he could discern it on the subtler
planes. (vist his website - Sacred
This person saved me. To say he saved my life is probably true.
He gave me back not only my energy, but also my will to live. Through
him, I realised just how far I had wandered off my true Path, away
from the things and people who would bring me true joy and happiness.
I needed to find the person I was, the person I had left behind
all those years ago in childhood. To re-discover the wonder and
richness in the simple things of life, things that money cannot
I did not realise it then of course, but I was being primed for service. When I recovered it was with an awakened soul. One that would bring something out of a dark place and share my experiences through writing and poetry. I was brought by the spirit to Janara who has gifted me this web site and from the ashes of a former life has arisen a different person with a different mission -
So many of the happenings in the past made sense to me. I saw everything from a different perspective and I decided I was going to help others uncover their rightful selves. This was no easy task as so many are almost buried under years or generations of conditioning.
- I realised that the power for all things lay inside myself. That my inner voice which had tried to whisper of self empowerment was right all along.
- That I was indeed a spirit inside a body just as I had discovered about aged 8 yrs when I suddenly awakened to the fact that the "I "that looks out of my eyes is the real me not the body it inhabits.
- I realised why I had the connection to so many things like nature and animals.
- That everything is simply vibration and the only things separating one level from another is rate.
- That trees really did have personalities and that the whole created universe was held together by a unique vibration and it is divine love.
- That I was finally coming into alignment with my soul and soul purpose on the earth and that is to help and heal others by sharing and spiritual healing.
"... And above all -
To thine own self be true,
And it must follow,
As the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."
~ William Shakespeare (from Hamlet) ~
True riches cannot ever be bought. I am richer now beyond
compare due to the people who are crossing my path.
So, What Can We Do?
True healing is an on-going process. A constant stripping away
of the veils of illusion which keep us prisoners of limited thinking
and worn out negative thought patterns.
"What you resist, persists."
We need to reprogramme our cerebral computers with new up to the
minute software. If something has made us ill in the past and we
have not learned from it, it will simply repeat the process in the
"Unless you start doing something
you are in for more of the same."
The more we work on ourselves peeling back the layers of our conditioning
like an onion, the more liberated our minds become to new and exciting

intensely and with firm resolve,
that is exactly what he becomes."
~ Shankaracharya ~
I really do feel for those people who remain SO bound by conventional
thinking that they are unable to even consider that what they have
been taught (programmed with) is not the Truth. Those people
have allowed themsleves to become totally disempowered! Like worker
ants with a collective consciousness. But, this is not our natural
state of being! Just because something has "always been
done that way" does not automatically give it the stamp of
Wake up and uncover your radiant inner light

We have the power within us as manifesters to
make huge changes for the better in our lives and health by
a change in our thinking. See Creating
