NIGHTCLIFF, N.T., Australia (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
From traditions dating back to the dawn of history comes a book on healing based on the mastery of spiritual knowledge. Author Bilawara Lee, whose name means “Black Cockatoo,” says this, in Healing from the Dilly Bag, about the fundamental and philosophic nature of her work, “We follow in footsteps millennia old and our cultures and customs have nurtured, and continue to nurture the land, since men and women awoke from the great dream.” By introducing the general reading public to the old but unfamiliar healing methods of her people, she “acknowledge[s] all the traditional custodians of all the ancestral lands of Mother Earth.”
Healing from the Dilly Bag carries Lee’s message from her knowledge and teachings as a spiritual healer. She is an Aboriginal Elder and the information shared in her book does not represent any teachings from other Aboriginal communities or healers as there are many different Aboriginal nations and healing practices in Australia. She can only tell about hers and it is a detailed, moving account of the Aboriginal Dreamtime’s universal wisdom. In the dilly bag, woven from pandanus leaves and a traditional accessory for Aboriginal women that Lee uses for her healing rituals, she finds the perfect symbol for the spiritual healer’s nurturing role, not only for specific patients but for society at large.
Lee shares a wealth of information about how she uses her knowledge and skills from ancient traditional teaching in a contemporary world. Holistic spiritual healing treats mind, body and spirit. It is different from western medicine which focuses on parts of the body and mind but ignores the spirit, expecting patients to seek spiritual healing from their religious organisations. Spiritual healing aims to restore balance for each person in their body, mind and spirit. The black cockatoo bird is an Ancestral Spirit “Being” that represents the power of spirit coming into lives as an embodiment of an energy that can change – when it comes, changes in life will follow, and that it is precisely how Healing from the Dilly Bag will affect readers: from it comes little things and big things, things that will take its readers into an unambiguous, practical way of looking at nature, spirit, and man as interlocking, integrally harmonious parts of a unified state of being.
