I’m passionate about self healing, and with my own experiences of it. I often wonder how some forms of dis-ease manifested, and how people deal with them from the inside out.
Any time I have experienced a health challenge, it has served as a strong reminder for conscious self care, starting from within.
Here are some things I learned for myself, and in working with others through their healing process:
1. Ask Where This Came From
Your body is talking to you. And if you’re at a point of extreme challenge, then your body is screaming with the urgency to be heard. I gain clarity by asking to uncover the real motivators of the experience, and then act on my new awareness. You may have to ask several times, until your awareness opens up to the root cause.
Sometimes I find my thoughts were out of alignment with feeling good, or something comes up from the past that offers new insights for me to grow from…
Re-store your self love, it’s what your body is really asking for.
2. Create a Habit of Healthy Thoughts
This type of experience is a reminder that what we think, so we create, and we would do better to think more loving thoughts, because you never know how things will show up. Personally, I like good things to show up.
Unfavourable thoughts and their related “negative” emotions, or the tiny residual thoughts that may have built up slowly over time are what create challenges that appear in physical form (or external circumstances). Remember; just as the constant rubbing of sand can irritate your foot… so can it create a magnificent pearl.
This is not a cue for guilt trips, and certainly not to say you brought anything upon yourself. It’s simply a benchmark to start fresh. The beauty is, we can change our thoughts at any moment. Even now. And now. And… you get it.
3. Let Go of the Attachment to the Dis-ease
Whilst there may be a shock factor to some news you receive, this is an opportunity to shake off what’s not working. Remember this is not a sentence but an awakening.
People will say they “have cancer”. They will even add “my” to the condition. STOP. I’m not saying to live in denial of what’s going on, but you can choose a new association with health. You might take a big leap of faith or build small steps towards this – scale up as you feel best for you. Just take your next step with love.
What people “have” is the experience of mental/emotional misalignment showing up in their bodies. The body is bringing this to our attention, in extreme ways for some, so we can clear the slate and focus on health.
4. Hold the Vision of Health – Your life is Your Domain
See yourself as healthy now. Hold that vision for yourself. Own and manifest the internal healing, while others – like a surgeon, if you’re at a stage that requires one – support you with the “technical” aspects.
For me, it also helps that I give myself Reiki. Tapping is pretty awesome too. Learn how to speed up your healing. Lean into holistic restoration and internal guidance.
5. Words Carry Super Powers – Use them Wisely
Of course you want your health restored ASAP. We all want that for you too.
But do you use words like: “fight, attack, aggressive treatment,” when you talk about how you’re going to approach your healing process? Are they words you use on a daily basis for other things? How do those words sit in your body? Notice where the energy goes…
How about healing through: “loving release, laser precision, almighty speed, gratitude and… yes, forgiveness.”
Yes, there may be challenging moments. And it’s okay to air out anger, fear, resentment, or whatever you may feel. They are part of the awareness of making new choices out of love (not fear), and help us build resilience whilst we lean into the health we manifest.
Consider these words attributed to Mother Teresa, “I will never attend an anti-war rally; if you have a peace rally, invite me. I am learning that if you focus on what you want, (peace) instead of what you don’t want, (war) you will receive it in abundance!”
For the love of your health, soften up your words, please.
6. What Other Feelings Can You Invite Along This Journey?
How would you like to feel throughout the restoration of your health? Find words that feel good, healthy, revitalising, nourishing. Give yourself permission to move through this process with as much ease, grace, and soul awareness as possible.
In his book, “A New Earth”, Eckhart Tolle refers to healing the pain-body, “…not through fighting it but through bringing the light of consciousness to it.”
7. Surround Yourself With Loving People
Be mindful of who you invite on this journey. It may not be for the faint of heart, so be sure your champions are coming from a place of confidence, purity, love, abundance and are committed to participating in the collective healing.
If you, brave soul, are experiencing a deeply challenging health concern, know that whilst we may never meet, I hold you in the highest loving light of your well being. And I hope these words encourage you to hold yourself there too.
