The more we tune into spirit and listen to that quiet voice inside of us that whispers and says things like, "Your doing too much, you need to slow down and take a rest", the better off we'll be.
Are you on a healing path? How do you know if you have healed? Is your healing a physical healing, a mental healing, or an emotional one? Or perhaps it's a spiritual healing?
We hear the word healing so often, and I think that everyone longs to feel whole. We all have a natural urge towards happiness and wholeness - it's an impulse that's within every living thing and I'd say it's pretty clear that's it's obviously there for a reason. It's the impulse for life! Yay for that!
In our healing journey, I think it's really important to take care of all of our levels of self - our body, mind, emotions, and spirit! Otherwise we'll be lopsided, and sooner or later we'll probably find ourselves delving into a new healing journey because certain issues will show up again and again.
The cool thing is that if we really listen, there are always hints and clues available for us... guiding us towards our wholeness. Yes, some times we need to be hit over the head with it before we listen, like when a significant health issue comes up! But the more we tune into spirit and listen to that quiet voice inside of us that whispers and says things like, "Your doing too much, you need to slow down and take a rest", the better off we'll be.
I know that you can think of a time or situation where you had a feeling that you should do one thing, but refused to listen, and then regretted it later when you caught the flu or broke out with a skin condition or whatnot....I know I sure have.. over and over and over again! But thank goodness that with aging comes a bit of wisdom, so hopefully I'm learning!
If we have heard that intuition giving us messages but we've ignored them, I don't think we should be too hard on ourselves... but instead maybe we can be compassionate with our own humanness and just hopefully learn from it and keep going forward.
Sometimes the physical challenges can be long term and very serious. Of course we'll do everything we can to help heal physically, but its also so important to take care of the soul. Loving yourself, being kind to yourself, no matter what the situation is - that's where the deepest power of healing lies.
Rumi said that the wound is the place where the light enters you.
What is your wound? Can you allow a little more light to enter in, let the light shine on your beauty, truth, inner love and strength?
No matter what your situation, I invite you to connect with that innate wholeness that is within you. Placing a hand upon your heart, saying to yourself:
May I be happy.
May I be healthy.
May I be whole.
May I be at ease.
May I love my self fully and deeply.
May I be at peace.
Rich blessings to you on your path to wholeness and health.
With much love
PS: I'd love to hear about your healing journey! What have you learned? What did the wound teach you about the light that is within you? xo
Check out the chart below and see what parts of your body tend to hold specific emotions and patterns of belief.
Most of us can easily relate to how too much stress and responsibility gives us sore shoulders, but look more closely and see what else your body might be signalling to you. Ring any bells?
The first step to wellness is awareness. Being aware means that you're not ignoring your body's signals until the pain becomes so loud it's impossible to ignore. (Been there, done that?)
The next step can be choosing to release the patterns creating the issue. This can be as simple as consciously affirming to release the held emotions, or it may require acceptance of past or present issues, it may include forgiveness of others and/or self, and it will usually always require establishing new patterns of thoughts and behaviours. For example, saying to yourself, "I am enough. I love and accept myself exactly as I am!"
If this feels weird or difficult don't worry, it gets easier with practice!! Put reminders in your home as a cue to remind yourself of your new direction and thought patterns.
Another terrific way to let go of limiting beliefs and emotions can be through yoga, meditation, and body mind therapies, such as Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®. You don't have to do it alone!!!
Start by trying this, "Every day and in every way I feel stronger and more balanced in my body, mind and spirit!!"
