Healing Happens

by Rev. Cathy Silva, O.M.C.

Cathy SilvaSome months ago I accepted an invitation to join in a group healing transmission from my friend Lorraine who facilitates a powerful healing energy from Source (Love).  Though Lorraine informed me the transmission lasted for just ten minutes, I felt prompted to lie down for about 30 minutes.

I didn’t know what to expect but was mindful to be open and receptive, trusting in my friend and the Source of the healing that was being brought in.

The energy that came through to me felt so gentle and loving.

My intention for the session was to have any conscious or unconscious blocks removed which seem to have me at a stand still in writing the relationship book I’ve committed to write and publish. It’s my deepest desire to have a loving helpful message come through honestly and clearly. I also would love for the writing to be effortless. Yes, I want writing and publishing my book to feel effortless!

After the session I reached for my A Course in Miracles book that was nearby and opened it up to a ‘random’ page. I was wanting some kind of affirmation I think, that I had something to share about being in relationships. 

At first glance I didn’t see what I was looking for. A thought came, “Maybe it’s on another page.” But then before I turned to another page I looked again; and there it was in Chapter 18.

“In your relationship you have joined with me in bringing Heaven to the Son of God, who hid in darkness. You have been willing to bring the darkness to light, and this willingness has given strength to everyone who would remain in darkness.” (T-18.III.6:1)

This said to me that the writing of the book would happen as easily as I am willing. As I allow my fears to be brought to the light and released, it will get written, it will be helpful and it could even feel effortless. I have come to a realization that the message comes through me, not from me just as the healing energy comes through my friend Lorraine not from her. Similarly, in the Accessing Inner Wisdom Counseling I do with clients, I am simply the facilitator who joins with Spirit along with the client so we may receive the insights and healing that is most helpful for the current situation or need. We are simply channels for God’s love. 

In paragraph 1 of the same section Jesus reminds us, “The light is in you. Darkness can cover it but cannot put it out.”

When the blocks are removed, the eternal Light we are is revealed and freed to extend and express through words, images, or actions.

Once I felt the session was complete, I went about my evening normally. I fixed a cup of decaf green tea and fetched a piece of dark chocolate and a nice light movie to watch. I didn’t feel drastically different but somehow at peace with whatever is and was and the insights that were coming into my awareness.

I felt as if something broke away within me. Not a breaking of a dam sensation where overwhelming thoughts and ideas come flooding through, but more like a stone that was interrupting and diverting my inner flow was gently rolled aside to allow for a steady natural stream of peace and insights.

The next morning on a group text with my friends planning our Christmas Party, my friend Debbie asked if anyone had a punch bowl they could bring. The vague memory of having one popped in, but “Where is it?” I questioned. To which I heard, “Ah yes, it’s in the cabinet above the refrigerator.” Sure enough, it was there along with the collection of cut glass that’s been in my family for years. I had forgotten I had it. It was hidden up in that cabinet all along. I was grateful for the reminder through Debbie’s request. Finding it sparked such loving memories. The memories of circumstances and events that had happened in my life floated to my awareness. Some were wonderful and other’s incredibly difficult at the time. I was pleased that I could simply observe them as they surfaced and felt only love and peace and gratitude for all that had taken place.

“If you knew Who walks beside you on the way that you have chosen, fear would be impossible.” (T-18.III.3.2)

Our fears and doubts and feelings of lack can prevent us from recognizing what is in the way for our progress and experiencing the Love that has been there all along. Fortunately, we have wisdom within in the form of a loving Guide, and we have each other to travel the road with and help us remember and heal. We all play our part in some way, some as healers and authors, others as dear friends, family or acquaintances. It takes willingness and courage to let go of the need to do it on our own. We need to let go of fear and let the blocks be moved aside that makes way for the healing to happen. With the healing comes the awareness of Love’s Presence, which is our ultimate goal and desire. I’ve found when I become aware of and join with the Spirit of Love within that everything else seems to take care of itself, including writing and publishing the book.
