Mind Body Healing
First, one must understand that it is impossible to separate the body, mind, and soul. All three are interwoven, and each one has a strong and lasting influence on the other. Our moods and our personalities also affect the healing process, and those of us with a strong will to live have a much greater chance of recovering from serious illness. Remember also that each of us is completely unique, and that what may work for one person may not be right for another.
In order to give yourself the best possible opportunity to heal, it is important to get in touch with who you truly are. Without a willingness to access the inner workings of the mind, it will be impossible to achieve a state of wellbeing and to encourage healing energy that will transform your life. There are a number of simple techniques that you can use in order to reconnect with your emotional and spiritual side. This is known as holistic mind therapy.
True healing is a deeply personal experience that cannot be replicated in a hospital or doctor’s office. In fact, before any self-healing can take place, it is first necessary to prepare the mind and body by entering what is known as “the healing state.” In essence, you are preparing yourself to become receptive to your body’s own healing energy.
Frequently, people who practice self-healing find that they experience a spiritual transformation as well as a physical and emotional one. This process is life-changing and offers many additional benefits – over and above fixing a physical health problem. For example, many people report that they have much more joy in their life. Close relationships become more meaningful, and there is a true appreciation for what life has to offer. A serious illness may be viewed as a blessing rather than a curse, as it provided the opportunity to adjust one’s outlook and gain more satisfaction from life.
Individuals who experience healing on this level also tend to reassess their lives as a whole, making significant lifestyle changes. A healthy diet and lifestyle is part of this, as is aiming for new and exciting goals. Drugs, alcohol, and other addictions are no longer needed in order to cope, as unhealthy activities are replaced with natural remedies for life’s difficulties.
Encouraging your inner healer.
The fact that your body is actively trying to heal itself is of great importance. Perhaps the greatest gift we can give ourselves is to get out of the way of the healing process that naturally wants to occur!
We can actually help our inner healer to thrive in a number of ways. First of all, it is necessary to truly believe that healing from the inside out is actually possible! There will be people who try to discourage you in this, but try not to let doubts get in the way of your inner-peace. This is your decision to put your health first, and by allowing yourself the time to look after your mind, body, and soul, you are giving yourself the best possible opportunity to achieve lasting good health.
The ideal way to start helping yourself begins with stopping and rethinking how life is going right now, immediately, and in the moment. Nothing going on in your life is worth dying for, and to tune out of your own life is extremely damaging to your health. Unless we recognize the significance of these words, we will continue to get sick and miss out on the pleasure of actually living!
