noun: parasite; plural noun: parasites
an organism that lives in or on an organism of another species (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other's expense.
I was trying to find a suitable image to make this post "interesting" and almost put myself off my lunch. Anyway..., we've all got parasites in us, on us and around us; it's just a fact of life. In fact, by some counts there might be around 650,000 different types of parasite associated with humans. We can pick these up through the food we eat and walking bare foot on the ground. Parasites drain our energy and food and some of the early indications are that the host becomes thin, will feel hungry all the time, but because the body thinks it is starving, it may actually hold on to fat reserves making the host gain weight.
From a ThetaHealing-perspective, people with parasites are influenced on more than a physical level:
People are more susceptible to physical parasites if their belief systems allow other people to take advantage of them.
I have had a couple of nasty parasitical infections over the years and I don't recommend it, but it is also important to note that people can be parasitical too. This isn't to say that people are necessarily parasitical out of choice, but some are. I know some genuine, kind and loving souls, but they're always "down" and "draining" of my energy. This is when it becomes important to know how to protect yourself from their negative energy.
Another good example of parasitical behaviour is a narcissist; they feed off of other people's energy to benefit themselves - which is exactly what a conventional parasite does.
Parasite cleanses are great for getting rid of them from within your body, but also look at whether you allow others to take advantage of you. With ThetaHealing, releasing beliefs that draw parasites to a person can be enough on its own to cause the parasites to die off.
Ridding yourself of physical parasites also helps you let go of "emotional parasites" (people who suck you dry) and "energetic parasites" (waywards, spiritual hooks, etc.).
Oh, and if you want to go off and Google parasitical infections, maybe wait until AFTER lunch.
