Are You Really Sick
Or Just Morphing?

Getting sick unexpectedly. Purging. Frequent urination. Unexplained pains or muscle aches. Hives. Severe insect or spider bites. Abscesses. Diarrhea. Chest tightness. Rashes. Exhaustion. Heart palpitations. Trouble breathing. Dizziness.

What do all these things have in common?

The shamanic lifestyle!

“As is the human body, so is the cosmic body. As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind. As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm. As is the atom, so is the universe.”
~ The Upanishads

(I can hear you groaning, "Great!")

I can't tell you how many times I have had intense physical symptoms that have accompanied major transition in my life. When my body is clearing a lot of dross, it is not uncommon for me to go to the bathroom a LOT. To cry a lot. To sleep a lot. To feel like I have been wrung out like a washrag.

During extended periods of energetic purging, I have had several bouts of hives or even gone down with a bad cold. And multiple times I have experienced anxiety symptoms, heart issues or breathing issues. When heart or breathing issues got scary, I always went to the doctor to be safe. And I always checked out perfectly fine. Well, in terms of western medicine, that is.

Spiritual HealthSome people call this type of event a spiritual health crisis. What that means is sometimes the body just needs to "go down" so it can go inward, conserve energy, realign and focus on the cellular and etheric makeover that is occurring.

When this happens, you aren't crazy! Your symptoms just don't fall into a category of cause and effect that western medicine is used to seeing (or believing). I'm not saying don't treat the physical symptoms, go to the doctor or find something to give yourself relief. So yes, get a cream for the rash, Immodium for the diarrhea, or cold medicine for the cold. Honor that both things are true — you are having physical symptoms AND you are going through transformation. What I am saying is understand that the CAUSE of many of these types of events is not just randomness.

The physical world reflects the non-physical world. Shamanic consciousness embraces that the entire world is animated and we are in direct relationship with everything around us, seen and unseen. The axiom "as above, so below; as within, so without" is exactly the path that we walk, and if we look at the experiences of our life through this filter, we will know the truth of it. These occurrences of "spiritual health crisis" are an outpicturing of the inner change that is transpiring at that time.

And here's another type of event you might experience with major transformation: all of a sudden your environment (home, office) needs to change! This has happened to me multiple times where I come home from a particularly potent workshop or process, walk through the door of my home and exclaim, "Well, this just won't do!" I have rearranged furniture, painted rooms, changed color schemes, cleaned out knick knacks, had garage sales, redecorated and more.

HarmonyIf you look at what's happening from an energetic standpoint, it makes perfect sense. Your vibration has changed. In our world, we strive to create harmony. In places that we spend a lot of time, there is a harmonization or resonance in our energy and the energy of our immediate environment. The things around us reflect our current state of consciousness. When that changes, especially quickly or drastically, all of a sudden the things in our external surroundings are no longer a vibrational match. What used to be in resonance is now in dissonance. And it is a natural instinct to want to recreate the physical to reflect the non-physical and reestablish a new harmony.

By the way, this happens with human relationships, too. What is no longer in resonance with our new frequency is now in dissonance and this can show up in multiple ways in relationship. Friendships die out, people you used to spend a lot of time with you now have no interest in pursuing, old friends come back into the picture, certain tensions might come to a head or resolve themselves with family members, or you might even leave a job or a partnership. It's all a product of the energetics.

So let me just run the obligatory disclaimer here. I am not a doctor or health care professional. But I am a shamanic being who has walked the shamanic path for many years and worked with hundreds of clients and students where I have seen play out exactly what I am sharing with you here.

In the end, YOU are your own authority, so don't take my word for it. Seek your own guidance. Listen to your own inner council about what to do when you experience odd physical symptoms or investigate the cause behind them. Do your own examination about why certain things in your external world all of a sudden do a 180 or you feel the need to change things in your physical environment. But know these aren't just accidental or arbitrary occurrences. You are connected to everything and everything is connected to you.

Suggested activities:

1. Journaling question: Ask the condition what it has to teach you. Oftentimes we are so wrapped up in being frustrated and trying to figure out what to do to make it go away and that puts us in a place of resistance. Can you surrender to what is happening and ask it why it has shown up in your life and what it has to teach you?

2. Look back over times of major change and ask yourself how many other things shifted at the same time that were "supposedly" not related? Do those events look different to you now with this new perspective?

3. Be gentle with yourself when you go through intense physical symptoms. Engage in radical self-care and don't be afraid to put yourself first!

4. If relationships are changing, muster as much consciousness and grace as possible and allow what needs to die, to die. There doesn't have to be trauma and drama, but sometimes there is. When something is over — when the contract is complete — it can be as simple as parting ways in love. Hold this as the ideal — and prepare that it won't always be the case depending on the level of consciousness of the other person.
