Healing Unresolved Grief Triggered By Cat Allergies

My husband mentioned on a few occasions that he was allergic to cats but since I had not seen him around cats yet, or with allergies, I did not really believe he was allergic (at least that was my hope!). I love cats and had recently been thinking of getting one. I had a few cats growing up, so when a friend asked if I wanted one, after her cat had just given birth to eight kittens, I got really excited.

While discussing the possibility of getting a kitten, my husband was very apprehensive. I asked him not to worry because I felt his allergy was not ‘real’. Without knowing why I knew this, I went ahead and got the cat anyway (I know this sounds awful, but please bear with me).

When Brendan Luz arrived at our home on June 4, 2018; sure enough, my husband's allergies started to act up. Just after a few days, he got progressively worse and I started to feel really awful for bringing Brendan to our home. By the end of the week, my husband wanted to go see a doctor to potentially take something to help alleviate his allergies. I would have given the cat back before having him rely on a drug to alleviate his allergies.

I believe that all physical ailments are a manifestation of a deeper (emotional) issue. I knew that there was a reason why he was suffering from cat allergies other than the conventional explanation. I first looked up the spiritual & metaphysical meaning of cat allergies and read that cats are associated with the feminine – the nurturing, receptive, and loving part of our nature. After reading this, I had the feeling that the allergy may be related to his mother’s death. His mother had passed away from breast cancer when he was 16 years old.

There are many layers to an emotional trauma that are stored in our bodies. Some of these emotions are kept hidden in our subconscious mind and there are others that we are consciously aware of but we do not know the impact they may have on our health. Most of us have grown up not knowing how to listen to our bodies and look deeper within ourselves for the answers. It is hard for us to believe, understand, or even begin to process the fact that our ailments come from within ourselves.

We usually blame something external for causing the ailment when, in fact, the issue is reflecting something internal. In the case of allergies, we would normally blame the pollen, the animal, or even the food, but these things are triggers that give us clues that something internal is not flowing in harmony with our being.

I had just trained in Soul Transformation Therapy (STT) at the Holistic Healing College, so I asked my husband if he would try a session to see what we could find out; and to potentially heal or alleviate his allergies. STT uses a Soul Plan Archetype Tarot Deck that first looks at the polarity that governs the issue and then determines the separation pattern that needs healing. Once the pattern is identified, one or more recommended healing interventions are applied to help clear whatever is needed at that time.

My husband pulled a series of cards that indicated that there was unresolved grief. What I had intuitively understood was then revealed in the cards that he chose through this healing system. I went ahead with two recommended healing interventions: Soul Retrieval and Soul Plan Trauma Release which I broadly explain below:

Soul Retrieval

When we suffer from trauma, we can lose an aspect of ourselves in that situation/event. Our soul can fragment, meaning that an aspect of ourselves (in energy form) is "left behind" or is “frozen” in time. The process of fragmentation can weaken our energetic field. When our energetic field is weakened we are more susceptible to attracting unwanted ailments. When a person is guided on a soul retrieval they recover the ‘lost’ aspect of themselves. They bring it back, witness it, heal it, and integrate it. The process helps a person’s energetic field become more whole and stronger.

Soul Plan Trauma Release

There are also energies that can get stuck within our auric field blocking our creative energetic flow. Our inquisitive nature and movement can be stifled and therefore may not be flowing in unison with our essence. With soul plan trauma release, the practitioner can sense where the energy is ‘stuck’ and go through the motions of shifting and releasing it to allow a healthier flow of energy around the body. When complete, a person can feel stronger and more empowered. </
