We are a society of quick reactions to peripheral symptoms.
We want quick cures and thus react to the visible, often secondary symptoms of a malady. We want a pill or quick external remedy to “cure” the disease.
From a shamanic perspective this is quackery.
The symptom is not the source. The only way to eradicate a malady is to find and eradicate its cause. The cause is seldom the fever, the rash, the pain, the stress, the elevated blood pressure or the inflammation.
The source is seldom the fear, the insomnia, the anxiety, the phobia or the eating disorder.
The source is seldom the social security, the welfare or the public health plan.
The source is seldom the infidelity, the quarrel or the unsatisfactory sex.
When we do not treat the source, the condition lingers and the disease festers underground, showing up as a worse malady later on.
The source is usually deeper, soul-deep. It is underground, fundamental, primary, emotionally charged, spiritually energized, psychically directed and process-related.
Become a healer by taking the time to track down the symptoms all the way to the source. Take the time. Have the patience. Yield the courage to find the source.
Whether it is physical, emotional, spiritual, social or political, the disease only heals when we address the source.
