An allergy is the body’s hypersensitive response to a substance in the environment. The substance we are allergic to represents a part of ourselves we have judged, rejected and fractured off.
The allergic response is a projection of our conflict and self-attack. Therefore, an allergy is based on self-judgment, which indicates a resistance to life in some way.
There is a hidden element of narcissism that we are acting out by being oversensitive. Our allergies can also come from having been around a toxic person or situation whom we have not forgiven.
This hides a deeper level of negative self-concepts about our being toxic, harmful or poisonous. In truth we have been called to let go of these self-concepts and help the other through forgiveness and the sharing of healing gifts.
