Every chronic illness or challenge has its very own history and therefore requires a very personalized approach. In my practice, I use a guided dialogue to help my patients to connect with their higher self. This inner self is the instance within us that brings about our personal crises and illnesses, but also knows the way out because it knows of our inner tasks and potential for development. It encourages us to find and embark on our own path. Our soul knows what the answer is, but we often cannot gain access to the soul’s higher layers; sometimes our soul reveals the answer in dreams or in the form of spontaneous insights. During soul work we pull out and process specific unconscious issues that are buried in the depths of our soul, such as traumatic experiences and patterns that feed the illness. Overcoming illness means finding this path of growth, a conscious and strengthening endeavour which leads us to a much more mindful and fulfilled life.
