Most of us just think of the body, mind or spirit when we think of healing. We think about our doctors who heal our hurts, our counselors who help us to heal our minds, and our pastors who help to heal our hearts. But, there's more to us than just body, mind, and spirit. There are actually five levels of healing, not just three, and all five levels influence each other throughout every moment of our lives, without us much knowing about it.
Level 1: The Physical Body
This is the level where we live in the skin we are in. Therapies for this level usually address bio-chemical and structural aspects of the body through foods, herbs, drugs, hormonal therapy, massage, exercise, and chiropractic care.
Level 2: The Aura
This is the level of our electromagnetic energy field. Therapies for this level include checking for geographical stress spots, such as underground streams and fault lines, acupuncture, and Ayurvedic or Traditional Chinese medicines.
Level 3: The Thought Field
Therapies on this level require psychotherapy, hypnptherapy, and homeopathy. As much as we would think, it is not this level that causes mental illness.
Level 4: The Dream Field
This is the level where we are affected each other and the global environment. Therapies on this level include working with spiritual teachers, Shamans and Gurus.
Level 5: The Spirit Level
In Kabbalistic literature, this represents Yechida (Contact Between Soul and God). It is believed that psycho-spiritual trauma can trickle down into all the other levels causing anxiety, phobias, and addictions. From our fifth level we are in direct relationship with God. Interferences on this level are caused by past life or childhood traumas, death memories, or enlightenment experiences connected to a spiritual teacher. Therapies for this level are true meditation and prayer. Spiritual teachers and all other therapies have no business or affect on this level.
Healing on Level 1, the physical level, is a slow process and will spread upward through the other levels rather tediously, but healing on Level 5, The Spiritual Level, can immediately correct any and all disturbances on the lower levels instantaneously. This is why prayer is so beneficial in the process of healing.
