On the surface, the causes of illness and disease seem
pretty obvious. We “catch” something, we inherit something
or somewhere along the way there is a misfire in our DNA
and we develop something like cancer.

So, what do we usually do? We go to the doctor, even if it’s an alternative one, and try to correct the physical cause and treat the physical symptoms. But, it’s not quite that cut and dry. You see, we are so much more than our physical bodies. In my work of Divine Navigation™ we engage all four “centers of being” that make up your whole being. Your heart, your mind, your spirit and the physical manifestation of the first three in your body. Each center of being is attributed to a direction.

West = Heart
East = Mind
North = Spirit
South = Body

Illnesses, ailments and dis-ease can be sourced from any, all or a combination of the four centers of being. By the time you have physical symptoms you have been experiencing an under-expression or over-expression in one or more of the centers of being for some time. As your whole being is comprised of more than just your physical body, treating an issue on that level alone is insufficient. For a true and complete healing to occur, a wholistic approach is essential.
Even when it is a South/Body sourced ailment, there is a core energy in the originating center of being that needs to be addressed in order to assure any external treatment’s effectiveness. If you treat only the physical manifestation without resolving the underlying energetic conflict, chances of recurrence or even failure are exponential.

Let’s look at the base energetic spectrum of the common core energies that each direction, “center of being,” holds along with a sampling of common ailments connected to each direction. This inventory will help you begin to identify which center(s) of being your ailments may be sourced from and initial steps you can take to help resolve the underlying energy that is creating the dis-ease.

West /Heart — Moving from Resistance to Embracing

Resistance can take many different forms from self-loathing to blame to control to self-protection. Unresolved emotions, regrets and resentments are also stored in the West/Heart.

Cancer gets a ton of publicity but heart disease is still recorded as the number one single cause of death in the US. This includes any form of irregularity or disease of the heart including but not limited to A-Fib, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Resolving Energetic Conflicts in the West/Heart

Many of us carry around the burden of past emotional pain without even realizing it. You may not even be sure what it is that you need to let go of. Releasing and letting go of past pain, grief and heartache is always a good place to start. Here are a few questions to begin your exploration: What is it that I am resisting? What/who is it that I need to embrace? Where can I soften my heart? How do I begin to tear down the protective wall I’ve put around my heart? Who do I need to forgive?

East/Mind — Moving from Contraction to Expansion

Contraction is often created through our unconscious judgements and limited belief systems that block us from seeing the world in new ways and opening up to possibilities and new avenues of thinking. Overthinking and analysis also keep many “stuck in their head” and under-utilizing the gifts of the heart and spirit.

Headaches and in the extreme migraines are the most common ailment connected with the East. This often indicates an overuse of the “lower” mind and a block to the “higher” mind faculties of intuition and illumination.

Resolving Energetic Conflicts in the East/Mind

Notice where your thinking takes an automatic “this is the way it is” approach. Begin to open up and expand your field of awareness with these questions: What do I know that I am pretending not to know? In what ways am I blocking my own awareness and intuition? If I was to look at this situation/circumstance/ person from a different angle, what might I learn?

North/Spirit — Moving from Suppression to Expression

It is sad to note we live in a world full of people who are not living their own lives. We are conditioned to follow the rules and check off the boxes, making it almost impossible to break away from the crowd, blaze our own trail and be who we really are. Denial of your authentic self will eventually lead to dis-ease.

Depression is probably the most common ailment today which is associated with the North/Spirit.Record numbers of people are on anti-depressants and the numbers continue to climb. At the core of depression is the suppression of one’s personal truth.

Resolving Energetic Conflicts in the North/Spirit

Even the smallest acts of expressing your truth can create huge shifts. One of the simplest tools is to to pause before answering a question and check in with what you really feel (West) and think (East). Then respond only with your full truth. No little white lies, sugar coating or telling people what you think they want to hear. You might find that at first it is uncomfortable to respond in alignment with your truth over the habit of fulfilling expectations, but with practice it will get easier!

South/Body — Moving from Disconnection to Embodiment

While the South/Body can be the source of its own ailments, all forms of dis-ease sourced from the other three directions will show up in the physical because the body is the physical manifestation of heart, mind and spirit. Being disconnected from any or all of these centers including the body, can lead to dis-ease.

When the divinely-designed dance of the four centers of being works in harmony then it brings us the sweetness of life. Diabetes occurs when this is out of balance and there is no joy in your life.

Resolving Energetic Conflicts in the South/Body

Your body has an amazing built-in navigation system. If heeded, it will point you in the right direction and guide you home to yourself and the life you are meant to live. But in order to access this, you must be fully present in your body.

It is surprising how many of us are not connected to our bodies. At the beginning of all Divine Navigation™ programs, I start by teaching how to get into your body and to discern and hear the signals it has been sending you. In order to hear the body you must be in the present moment, and in order to be in the present moment, you must be present in the body.

Begin by asking yourself the question “where am I?”. Not where are you physically. Rather, where is your awareness? Your awareness can go anywhere you send it as it is not attached to your body, but that’s where it is most at home. It can take some practice to locate your awareness but once you do gently invite it into your body, specifically into your upper abdomen, your solar plexus, breathe into that space and practice holding your awareness there. Don’t worry, you’ll get better over time!

Understanding that illness and dis-ease are far more than physical conditions is the first step toward true and lasting healing. When we look at the more serious illnesses such as cancer, it is likely the result of a combination and culmination disease in all four centers of being to varying degrees. Working with the core underlying energies in each of the centers of being can exponentially accelerate your healing potential.

You also hold our own unique energetic vibration in each of your four centers of being. I call these your Divine Coordinates®. Until you identify your Divine Coordinates® you can work with the common core energies in each center of being and see great results. Once you identify your Divine Coordinates® you will discover more specific ways to work with your unique energy in each direction.

Who you are goes far beyond your physical body so be sure your healing goes beyond the physical to whole being healing!
