‘Holistic healing’ is approaching and working on your healing on every single level of who you are. Often self-healing is half-hearted and many people think that they are doing enough even when things are not getting better.
Many of us know that to be well you have to be balanced in body, mind and spirit. Your beliefs and emotional condition play a big part in whatever is wrong with you physically, and of course exercise and nutrition are important factors too.
But how committed are we all to this process?
And how much time do we need to spend on ourselves daily to heal?
And when you feel so ill that you’re not eating properly and you can’t exercise and you are at your lowest point, what do you do?
This is when I realised that I had to get serious with myself and completely commit and do whatever it took to get better, by creating ahealing program that was going to work and was right for me. It is clear that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another and what had worked in the past didn’t seem to be working now.
So the first thing that I did was to set a new intention that I was going to find all of the solutions required to heal myself. This meant staying completely present in awareness of all feelings, sensations, thoughts, memories etc happening within my body and mind 24/7.
It also meant staying open and paying attention to any signs or signals pointing me in a new direction of self-care. Signals can come through dreams, messages from friends or strangers, on TV, a book you pick up to read, a memory popping up, something falling off of a shelf in front of you, a word coming into your head, a song…just about anything!
During this process I dedicated most of my day to ‘going within’ by working on my emotions and beliefs using different forms of energy psychology, doing meditation/visualizations as well as preparation of pure healthy food to eat and gentle exercise.
