"Go with the flow. If you don't follow your inner spirit, you will indeed get sick and take pills." Valerie's wisdom was as divine as her age. She volunteered her age as three score ten and twelve.
I was in a deep depression at the time, but I had some idea of what she meant - healing comes from the inside. Four years later, I got a clearer picture of my illness. It was caused by an internal conflict. By viewing my mind as consisting of four parts, I was able to make remarkable progress which even astounded even my doctor. The rational conscious, the emotional subconscious, the spiritual Self and the Source. Four completely different parts which needed to live in harmony with each other for a healthy life.
The subconscious was like a supercomputer which received IDEAS from the rational conscious and IDEALS from the spiritual Self. The IDEALS had to conform to the Universal Law legislated by the Source. If the IDEAS differed from the IDEALS, the subconscious would get confused, and this would cause an emotional conflict within. The disease would soon manifest itself as a disease in the physical body.
My rational mind had insisted on non-conforming IDEAS and this stubbornness had forced the subconscious confusion to the surface. That is how the depression became my healer. It made me take a good look at myself and my IDEALS, and it allowed me to be more intuitive in life. It put the world in a much healthier perspective, and I reached new spiritual heights. I had followed the wisdom of the old lady and gone with the divine flow of my inner energy. My nagging depression had turned into a feeling of inner peace.
