Healing the Root Cause of Illness: Q & A with Medical Intuitive Rachel Reimer
We spoke with Medical Intuitive, Rachel Reimer to learn how she helps her clients heal by getting to the root cause of illnesses. Rachel explains how limiting thoughts and beliefs can create dis-ease within the body. She walks us through her process of identifying and transmuting these thoughts and beliefs and explains that once these emotional beliefs and thought patterns are eliminated from the body, the body will often self-heal.
Rachel, can you tell us a little bit about what you do?
Within my business, Rae of Hope LLC, I help individuals identify and understand the specific emotional stress is related to their health condition. Stress is widely understood in the medical community on how it can create or exacerbate health conditions. However, what specific stress is related to your symptoms? Is it the stress of feeling stuck in your marriage or the stress of not feeling like you are performing well enough at work?
Can you explain what role our thoughts and beliefs play in physical illness?
From my perspective, our body is a record keeper. Everything that we have not emotionally resolved, stays in the body until it no longer bothers us on a heart (emotional) level. The more that something bothers an individual emotionally, the more likely it is that the individual will develop symptoms that bother them physically.
How do you identify these thoughts/beliefs?
The only thing that I need to identify thoughts/beliefs related to someone’s health issue or symptom is a picture of them within the past year. In most cases, I tend to ask these questions when looking at someone’s picture:
- Where does the body look abnormal? (From an intuitive perspective)
- What emotion does this part of the body typically represent?
- Who/What does it involve? Family? Friends? Romantic Relationships? Job/Career? Money? Housing? Religion? etc.
- What year did this emotional stressor happen? Is it in the past or the present moment?
What is the process like for transmuting these thoughts?
To change any thought or belief, identify what is emotionally bothersome and look for a way for it not to be bothersome anymore.
Let’s use this example:
A personal client comes to me with a left shoulder that frequently dislocates. Their doctor, physical therapist and other support can’t identify why the dislocations keep occurring. The individual can have their left shoulder dislocate just by talking.
When I look at their picture:
- I see the left shoulder looks abnormal.
- The shoulder tends to symbolize “burden” and a dislocation tends to symbolize “emotional abandonment”.
- When I go through asking the questions of what this is related to, I stop at religion.
- When I ask myself what year this emotional stress started, I stop at 2012.
After coming up with this information, I will present it to the personal client.
“In 2012, what happened with your church/faith where you felt emotionally abandoned and haven’t been able to tell anyone?’
The woman replied: In 2012, I was raped by a church member. If I tell anyone in the church, I will be kicked out and won’t be able to talk to my family anymore.
After I understood what was bothering this woman, we worked through the belief until it no longer bothered her.
Can you give us some examples of clients you have worked with who have healed from chronic illnesses after clearing limiting beliefs?
This is what that conversation looked like:
Rachel: Do you feel powerless around this person?
Client: Yes. I feel like he has taken my entire life away from me.
Rachel: Do you feel like he hurt you?
Rachel: If you are willing, I would like you to go back to the original event where he hurt you. Right before the event happens, I want you to picture that you have a giant mirror over top of you. As he approaches you and sees himself in the mirror instead of you, what does he do?
Client: He stops.
Rachel: Why does he stop?
Client: He realizes he is trying to escape his own pain. When the mirror was there, he couldn’t escape it anymore. He actually ran away when he saw his own reflection.
Rachel: Ah! So, after seeing this, did him hurting you have anything to do with you or did it have to do with him wanting to escape his pain?
Client: He would have done (and still tries to do) anything to escape his pain. I have seen him talk to other women the way he has talked to me. I suspect I am not the only one. I can see it has nothing to do with me now. WOW. Rachel!
*A few seconds later, her shoulder pops (in a good way) and feels far more stable.
To me, this is a great case example that illustrates that a good chunk of the time, we take the hurt very personally. When we can see that the hurt isn’t personal, the memory becomes neutral.
Think about a time where you stubbed your toe into something, and it hurt really badly. When you go back and think of the memory, you know it was uncomfortable but can’t feel the pain of it anymore. This is neutral. This is the goal when working through emotional stress.
This method will help work through some emotional beliefs. For others, we continue to look at the situation in different ways until it no longer bothers the individual emotionally.
Would you say that once the limited thoughts and beliefs are cleared, the body will self-heal?
I believe that the body can heal just by working through emotional beliefs. With single symptoms, I have seen the condition resolve within 30 minutes. For more chronic diseases, there tends to be several emotional beliefs and events that bother the individual. If someone is willing to work through what bothers them piece by piece, I believe that they can heal.
What are some examples of some common physical symptoms/ illnesses and the belief system associated with them?
Hypothyroidism = “Rage. Look at all I do for you, and this is how they repay me?”
I see this pattern so often in women that have gone through a very difficult break-up and/or women that are workaholics.
Diarrhea = “Fear. I won’t make it out of this okay.”
Diarrhea can be seen before events where someone feels vulnerable. A music performance, sexual intimacy, a job interview etc.
Headaches = “I’m a screw up and/or “I’m not doing enough.”
People that strive for perfection tend to have chronic headaches. The story is, once I am perfect, I will get the love and attention that I want. Is that true?
What is the typical time frame for healing to occur when doing this work? How often do you recommend your patients work with you?
Healing has so many different elements to it, and it isn’t possible to put a time frame on it. This is similar to someone that has financial issues. How long will it take me to get rich?
The best answer I can give is the following: The more that you confront the emotional stress and work with it, the more likely you are to heal.
The more that you pay attention to your finances and work on it, the more likely you are to have financial abundance and keep financial abundance.
Neglect does not grow, change, or fix anything.
I recommend that people work with me every 4-6 weeks. Addressing emotional stress once every 6 months in your life, isn’t going to change much. Consistency is important. You don’t work through emotional stress once and never have any emotional stress again. Most of my personal clients have worked through their physical complaints and see me for prevention. We work through emotional stress before the body develops physical complaints.
Are there any resources you suggest for people interested in learning more about this kind of work?
