Integration is important. In fact, it’s absolutely vital to the healing process and largely what healing is about - bringing parts into the whole. Integration is that final moment of alignment that completes the healing process. It can, and does, happen in a very natural way but sometimes, when we don’t allow ourselves the time and space to honor the work we’ve done, the integration may not completely take shape in three-dimensional reality. Sometimes we rush the process and confusion, disillusionment and disappointment can set in following what was an initially positive healing experience. Sometimes we even loose the healing altogether.
If you know my work, you will have heard me talk about ‘letting your paint dry’ after a healing session. I ask people to keep their aura quiet and not expose themselves to people and activities that can interfere with the emergence of their newly transformed self. You don’t want to smudge your paint before it has a chance to properly set. The time immediately following a healing session can be critical to retaining and embodying the healing. You need time for your systems to stabilize and become strong in the new, healed pattern before rushing back into a lot of mental and physical activity.
Your new goal is to embody the healing – to integrate it into the way that you live your life. Successful integration translates into aligned living. You are no longer at odds with your own Spirit. When you're in alignment, doing what’s best for yourself becomes effortless and natural. There is no need for immense effort, undue discipline or struggle. You are free to be someone different than you were before the healing. Integration is the final step in your healing process that will prevent back-sliding into old and comfortable, misaligned ways.
Humans create. We are creators. When we are not aligned, our creations are not aligned. A wound is just a structure, a pattern you keep weaving that is not aligned with that of the Divine creation pattern. When we are able to release or heal our mis-creation patterns, they come unravelled, and we may feel like we’re coming undone. The world we know can fall apart or simply disappear. Sometimes this is the hallmark of deep healing but it can feel overwhelming, and integration becomes even more essential.
While integrating your healing, it’s important to focus on the relief that you feel. Feel into the space that's opened up within you. Feel yourself beyond the old limitations. You are no longer the identity that was built around pain. The pain is gone but you are not lost without it. You have the space and newly emergent energy to create something beneficial. You can create something that is in Divine alignment for you and, therefore, all life.
The error we often make after healing, is to rush back into life without allowing time for the consolidation of our new state. Spend time in nature, meditation; sleep, journal or spend time with animals. Taking the time to allow your wings to dry now, means you can fly later. Allow your Spirit time to understand what you need to do to retain this hard-won healing. Maybe there is something you are now able to consciously let go of, or maybe there is something that you can now consciously welcome into your life. As you do this final step, the integration completes and you become the healed state. This is your medicine that you forever share with the world. Successful integration leads to embodiment as you effortlessly radiate the healed vibration to everyone around you.
