Giving a hand when a friend gets seriously ill – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

You get the news and you sit there with disbelief; is it fatal. Is it serious? Can something be done or how can we make the miracle happen? What can I do? How can I help?

From a holonistic perspective, we are more than just separate individuals. We belong to units of people like family, neighbourhood, community, nation and the whole human kind.

Diseases can make people close off, feeling shy, embarrased, feeling like a failure, a burden etc. etc.

The least step you can do is to be present in the common wholeness. Just being present in the mind is healing and comforting. Perhaps you feel like praying, or saying some blessings words. Just being present as another human that is part of a common bigger wholeness, is comforting and healing even without the person knowing. If you have a sanctuary at home, place a picture of the person there. Or just place a picture with a candle next to it or some flowers or a gemstone or other things you feel or are guided to.

Just being there is more than nothing. Imagine your liver saying; Hi kidneys, I see you struggle, remember I am here with you!

If you can make it a conscious act with some family members or friends that can come together or even sit at the same time and meditate in their separate homes, that also creates a synchronized healing-field of good intentions. You can do it alone or together with people, at the same place or at separate places. To synchronize time is more important than being at the same place.

Often all the persons involved will feel a healing energy and the person that is the focus of attention will often feel better both physically as well as emotionaly. I also have experienced that family members can tell that it is striking how much better the person is just after the distant healing.

Hippocrates said: Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always!

About author

This article was written by Andreas Bjørndal

Even if my work is in different fields and expressions there is a common core theme to most of my activities. I love to be an active part of growing awareness, insight, inspiration and spreading a unifying knowledge. I care for stimulating health and development, creating improved harmony and unity within the individual as in their relation with the group. Lecturing, writing articles, debating, teaching around the world has been a big part of my life. To day I also communicate through my blog The way we humans communicate “meaning” is so different and still so similar. The study of the old cultures, their medicine and understanding of life compared with the modern scientific approach has lead me to a unified understanding across seemingly unconnected areas of knowledge. Since 2008 I have explored new ways of knowledge; holonistic knowledge, which I share in my blog: I have lectured about a unified approach to complementary medicine, principles of healing, typology, the cosmology of the old cultures, Egyptology, kabbalah and much more. I love to work with people, in group-dynamics to be part of an evolving dynamic process and surrender to a higher intention. I counsel and supervise individuals, partners, couples and families to find the core theme in their lives and how they can resolve and master that. We all have a core theme in our lives and all challenges we encounter is trying to tell us what it is, help is master it and become a better version of ourselves.
