Healing my soul

8 Apr

Healing my soul
As time went on, I found it necessary to work with healer, and spiritual teacher, Jimena Yantorno.
Jimena pointed out to me that as a healer, she prepares the mind and body for healing, while it is one’s own universal consciousness that
undertakes the actual healing process. I had been taking deep meditation sessions with her online, and had discovered a way to draw closer to the
“real me.” The “real me,” of course, being the lasting one, or mystically the Eternal me. I realized that if I stripped away the many combinations of my
heritage, I would simply be an individuation of the Creator. At the same time, I came to understand there existed a “false self,” which had been formed
by the external suggestions around me put forth by the denial of my African and indigenous roots.
Meditation played a key role in helping me keep contact with the wisdom of the heart, the wisdom that led me to relate to my Afro-Indian self, I was
taught to keep buried. I realized a great deal of spiritual damage had been infl icted on me  through the rhetoric I was exposed to, in terms of being encouraged to honor only my white European heritage. My family had unwittingly taught me to cultivate a negative attitude towards the other aspects of my ancestral roots. I knew I had to find a way by which my soul could be healed, learning to cultivate a positive attitude, and accepting a spiritual foundation on which my self-image could moor itself. After the passing of my son in 2009, a long period of grief followed, and I was not aware fully that the tragic loss represented a sudden trend reversal I would need to confront. New ideas would soon be showing themselves as intuitive guidance as to what changes I would need to make in my life for the betterment of my soul. Slowly through the process of deep meditation each day I began to discover peace, renewal, and regeneration. I had a long talk with Jimena related to her practice of soul energy dynamics. I personally knew little about such holistic modalities, but was eager to learn, after all, I was starting to feel my soul depended on it.
I wanted to know in all of her experience with soul energy which insights riveted her imagination the most. “Seeing how limited we have become in
our thinking, and that we are actually more afraid of the light than of darkness,” she said. As I was newly discovering the value of having a soul energy
session for the purpose of healing, I had the sense there had to exist a great deal of skepticism about its effectiveness versus traditional methods such
as psychotherapy. So I asked Jimena to explain some of the common misconceptions about soul  energy. “All misconceptions about any type of
energy therapy normally come from the fear some  religions have created around it. So the most  common misconception would be the belief that
the soul energy practice is taboo, and even sinful.”  After being active in the practice of soul energy, told me the key was to fi nally be able to discover
one’s own uniqueness. “When you integrate the  reality that you have a unique gift, that you are loved beyond measure as God’s child, you connect
quickly to the Divine. And when you live in a state of connectedness, you have clarity, and life then  becomes an adventure,” she said. She explained
that my therapy session would be undertaken  via distance healing since we were living in two  separate geographical locations. She would go
into a deep state of prayerful meditation and focus  attention on my desire to integrate all my ancestral  roots into my being. All this would need to be put
in motion while I was asleep, so the process would necessitate my advising her about the time I was  ready to go to bed for the night. In like manner, I
too would go into a state of prayerful meditation,  focusing on allowing her to spiritually come into my  mind, or space. When I shared my excitement with
my husband, Mason, a retired psychotherapist, he  agreed, a soul energy session would prove benefi cial  to me since my “problem” was primal and spiritual.
We didn’t fi nd suffi cient evidence that traditional “talk” therapy would be able to address my needs.

Not long after my discussion with Jimena, I was  eager to understand the most important aspects  of showing others the value of it. So I called on
Jimena once again. ‘It’s valuable to realize you are  paving your way out of duality and up to the higher dimensions as creators. God is energy- all that is
and will ever be. If we are made in his image, then we  have literally nothing to fear in life. We constantly  face change in life, and through soul energy work,
we can heal the body, the mind, the spirit, and as we heal the individual, at the same time, we heal the human race collectively,” she said.
The time had fi nally come in my life where I needed to transcend the false ideas about my racial identity, I had internalized. True, research
had been undertaken, but now spiritual healing would be the next step, as I knew the change would manifest inwardly in a most profound life
altering way, I could not yet put into words. The paramount truth I must live by was making itself clear in my mind and heart. Every individual is
essentially pure, a spark of the Divine, as a result of the presence of God within. The spiritual reason why persons must cultivate a strong self-belief
resonates back to the idea that God is within each of us. Similarly, individuals must affi rm that God exists in the most elevated levels of their minds. I was coming to understand life was a process of learning, and as spiritual teacher, Dr. Leon Masters wrote, “ all of which is earmarked for what an individual is to learn and believe about him or her self. Therefore, in metaphysical philosophy  the words, “to thine own self be true,” relate to the realization concerning what your true self is, and what its purpose is. In my case, my purpose appeared to be integrating all my ancestral selves for the purpose of becoming the manifestation of a whole person. As Jimena had explained, my soul energy therapy would lead me to “re-connect to my Divine aspect in order for me to internalize the truth that life is more than just a physical reality,  but includes the mental, emotional, and spiritual realities. I asked Jimena to clarify the meaning of soul energy. “Soul energy is the same as soul work where we begin to accept that all of us came into life to evolve, to experience for God, and learn while at the same time, pursuing a path of happiness.” She said once I internalized these concepts, the old  patterns could be released creating space for the new person, or higher level template. “Here is where  miracles happen,” Individuals, she said, actually stop complaining, or blaming others for their faults.
“You will begin to accept whatever comes to your  life knowing that you were part of the choice, and  you will move towards awakening to consciousness
by accepting your own unique qualities which will manifest in service to self and to the world,” she  said.

 Needless to say, I loved the sound of those words and its meaning for me. Jimena told me  during my therapy session she would incorporate natural healing techniques to connect with me in the spiritual realm, and use a basic natal chart, in order to be able to gain insight to some of the  challenges put forth by my soul for this lifetime.
