Gula, ancient Babylonian goddess, facing right holds a scalpel. In her left hand a bandage, sitting in front of her symbolic power animal, the dog. Above is the crescent moon, symbolic of the watery depths of our origin, Essence of Being, Gula.
“I am the physician, I know how to heal…”
Healing? What does that mean? The process of making or becoming sound or healthy again. Becoming well. Is it physical or spiritual healing or are both contained in the essence of healing? Since Decartes humankind has severed the connection between mind, spirit, and body, physical form. Yet is that Truth or is it illusion? What does it really mean to be well? Does this imply visiting a physician who tends solely to form? Does this imply visiting a psychologist who nurtures our psyche? Or is it the minister, priest, or rabbi, the tender of souls, we seek on our journey toward healing? Some may be surprised to learn that healing prior to modernity did imply all of the above. The spiritual healers were the shaman, the priests, and the medicine people of the clan. Their guidance towards health and away from illness was holistic. They viewed being as one without separation.
