After a very insightful, enlightening conversation about flower essences, speaking with plants & animals, and Gaia, our Mother Goddess Earth, a thought came to my mind. If we are supposed to be living as One with the Earth, with Nature and all its inhabitants, why would anyone be allergic to any of it?
Our bodies are biologically designed to maintain perfect health at all times. However, ones feeling thoughts and beliefs are what end up manifesting sickness, or dis-ease, into the body. Also, the severity of the dis-ease [or symptoms] can be a physical manifestation attuned to the degree of strength of those thoughts and beliefs.
With that said, since plants & animals are healing, and also carry messages & meanings for us, if someone is allergic to a particular plant or animal, does this mean they have a subconscious resistance to what that particular totem represents?
For example, an allergy to cats.
Using the book, Animal-Speak, as a reference, a Cat represents Mystery, Magic and Independence. Going a little further into detail, the book says, " To cats have been attributed a wide variety of traits [...]. Curiosity, nine lives, independence, cleverness, unpredictability, and healing [...]"
Could it be that a person with an allergy to cats, may have to address & resolve blocks within these certain areas of their Life? Furthermore, is it plausible that, upon releasing said blocks, the individual would no longer be allergic?
At this point, I'm not aware of any research that has been done on this topic. However, I feel like, if I've thought of it, I'm sure someone else has, too. So, maybe there is some good information about it somewhere "out there". Either way it goes, I have a feeling, there is a lot of truth to it.
