How an Abscess Can Communicate a Vital Message

Sometimes we can understand mind/body or spiritual concepts easier, if we see them modeled by someone else. And sometimes, when we can observe this wisdom in animals, it becomes a very powerful transmission.

I am the guardian of horses, dogs and cats, and I learn continually from all of them. Even wild animals, or watching animals in videos can transmit greater wisdom, or states of peace. Here’s an email I recently received from someone recovering from Lyme disease:

“My partner has commented on how he finds me smiling as I watch and listen with the heart to your message in your u-tube conversations with your horses. Although I’ve come to enjoy your entire herd and family, your horse Montaro especially has truly blessed me with his assured strength and calm understanding. As he speaks to you and his herd, I feel he speaks to me too. This year, I met more wild animals during my daily walks than ever before. What a wonderful place and family you have made as you listen to your horses (and dogs) and learn from each other.”

If you have a stubborn fistula or abscess, or, one that keeps recurring – even though you’ve healed it – you’d do well to take an inventory of all possible contributing factors – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Most people tend to only look at physical causes. I received this question from a reader:

“I was wondering if there is anything to prevent the fistula abscesses from coming in the first place. I read all about healing them. But am I missing getting to the root cause? Mine have returned & I’m really discouraged with everything I’m reading.”

I love that this person is asking the right question! As you can see in the video above, the message of your recurring abscess could be just about anything pertinent to your life, or the way you’re currently moving through life and making the decisions you make. So you’ve really got to cast your net wide, open to all possibilities and open to receive deeper wisdom.

But let’s start with the easy stuff…

Possible physical causes of perianal abscess and fistula

Drug use – I once had a chat with an MD who was convinced that many of the drugs prescribed for Crohn’s and colitis actually caused fistulas as a “side effect”.

Suppressed immune system – again, we can look at immune-suppressant drug use and all the other things that suppress immune function like WiFi radiation, GMO and pesticide-laden foods, heavy metal or other toxins, factory farmed meat, lack of exercise, poor sleep quality, poor air quality AND stress, to name a few!

spiritual meaning of abscess

An abscess in a dream can indicate that you are feeling threatened in waking life.

This dream shows that positive experiences are going to enter your life. An abscess on your tooth in a dream can also imply that you need to get rid of bad habits. To properly interpret this dream we need to look at the areas that relate to this dream in question. For a positive dream meaning, the body in your dream must be perfect, this is because it symbolizes your spiritual growth and inner self. Strangely a boil actually represents your self-doubts in life. This could be regarding a situation that is unique – the advice in this dream is that you are missing opportunities that are staring you right in your face. Therefore, it is important that you recognize this – hence why you have been sent the dream. To pop an abscess or boil in a dream means that times of change are on the way.

What is the general meaning of seeing an abscess in a dream?

There is generally a coded message that something is not quite right in your waking life and even though it is rarely life-threatening on the same token is rarely true in reality. To dream that you see others with a boil or bad skin condition shows that you are likely to have some minor disappointment in a business situation. It is important to keep business to yourself in order to resist any embarrassment that you may bring upon yourself.

Firstly, it indicates that some type of idea that you have is infected in some way. Secondly, it can signify an infection in a close relationship and finally that your ego is being threatened in some way. The body itself actually signifies your ego to the outside world, therefore, if you have an abscess or boil then it is extremely unfortunate as this shows there are things that you need to do in order to protect your position in the world. I guess that it is time for you to work it out! If you were deceived in any way recently then this shows that you are going to have some stale feelings towards a relative who is close to you at the moment. This indicates that this relative is likely to be depressed and it is time for you to help them move out of this depression.

If your boil is untreatable then this directly affects your career opportunities in the future. The message is that you need to learn how to move into a better position. Perhaps studying or training is something you should consider. Any dreams of sickness and pain are never pleasant to handle.
