QUESTION: Masters, I come to you with deep doubt about one matter in particular. If the soul is forever, if we keep coming back to 3rd dimensional bodies to learn and experience things, why do we need to heal? By heal I mean align our chakras and correct our energies as many treatments teach on Earth. ~Marcus, Brazil
ANSWER: You are talking about one of the methods by which the soul learns. Say, for instance, that a soul wishes to see what faith in oneself or trust in another feels like. This can be accomplished by working on “correcting” a health issue through visualization, with various self-administered energy healing techniques, or by trusting and having the faith that an energy healer will bring their body back into balance.
The soul is eternal, it never dies, but it plays many roles in its education process. This is done in the many lifetimes in which it takes on a physical form to experience the duality of humanhood. The soul wishes to have specific learning experiences and to accept that it has the freedom of choice to turn them into wisdom with which to enjoy their physical sensations.
Part of the spiritual enlightenment awareness has to do with acknowledging that there is such a thing as nonphysical activities affecting the physical body. Third-dimensional society does not generally accept that energy healing even exists, much less that it can actually correct physical ailments.
One has to be able to sense their own energy in order to understand that balancing the body makes them feel better. Everything that a human “suffers” interferes with their physical, mental, and emotional levels. To completely balance themselves, they need to reset their energies to baseline or starting points. This can be done through the practices that you have mentioned.
Life lessons are designed to exist in negativity. The understanding of them, and therefore learning, takes place by bringing them into a positive format. How a soul performs that is up to them, but one way is through the use of metaphysical healing techniques that they have to acknowledge and in which they have to have faith that they will accomplish their goal.
