Understanding the lesson

QUESTION: Masters, a few years ago, I had a profound experience where I just “knew” I was completely healed from my long-term illness. I was very grateful and thanked Spirit profusely. However, the healing did not manifest on a physical level. Could you please explain what actually happened in this experience? Why did I feel I was healed? What stopped it from manifesting? Will the physical healing actually happen? ~Angela, Australia

ANSWER: Souls who are having a human experience have many layers. They have mental, emotional, and spiritual as well as physical aspects to self. When dealing with a physical condition, which is part of a life lesson, you may have to heal or re-balance each of your layers. Your long-term illness was the outward indication of a lesson you had chosen. It affected all four layers of your existence.

On a spiritual level you understood the elements that constituted your lesson, and you accepted the teachings of self-awareness, manifestation, patience, and faith in self. This allowed you to rid the spiritual part of your existence from the effects of your illness. On the physical level you still have to work with the lessons of being dependent on others and being able to ask for assistance while turning negative thought into positive action.

Emotionally you have not recovered your balance from victimization to whole person. It has become a belief system with which you identify yourself and it hasn’t been released or rewritten as of yet. Mentally you don’t have full faith that a total transformation is able to occur. Doubts continue to creep into your life, and these hold a physical change at bay.

Exposure to some of the actions and reactions from the duration of your problems created a comfort zone of acceptability, and these must be explored and banished before such a drastic modification as you perceived in your meditative state can take place. Anything is possible.
