Well-being is the nature of the Universe.
If all healing at the levels of mind, body, and spirit is self-healing, how come some people heal while others don’t? Are you blocking the inner wisdom of your body to heal itself? Are you taking responsibility for your own healing or are you giving your power away?
If you look to nature, you can see for yourself that well-being permeates the planet. It’s apparent in plants, animals, the cosmos… and people. There’s an intelligence flowing through everything that causes its growth and expansion. It’s protective and beautiful
All healing is self-healing.
Healing cannot take place without your consent, collaboration, or at the very least, your cooperation. At some level, there must be a buy-in to your healing or it won’t happen.
Why’s that? Because all healing is self-healing. Healing comes from within. It’s not an external thing that happens to you. It’s an internal thing that happens because of you. Somewhere deep inside, you have a belief that healing is possible – and so it is.
On the contrary, if you believe that healing is impossible then it is and healing won’t happen. Are you starting to see where the healing power stems from?
Just because all healing is self-healing doesn’t mean that you can or must heal everything that goes wrong. Some things are out of your control. We have environmental toxins, contagious viruses, trauma, and the law of momentum.
For the sake of this conversation, I’m focusing on the things you can control – or manage to a great degree. And believe me when I say there are many variables that are within your control.
Some of you will hate what I have to say, but I’m going to say it anyway. I’m not here to placate illness and disease. I’m here to promote your natural state of health and wellbeing.
I’m not about avoiding death, that’s inevitable for all of us. What I am advocating for is Quality of Life. And it’s available to all of us.
This article covers the larger ways we block ourselves from healing – and solutions, so we can turn the momentum around and affect our own healing processes.
Thoughts are things. Whatever you believe, it is. If you believe you have an incurable disease, you will not heal. Your brain is listening. If you believe your illness is a blip in the matrix and can be healed, your healing increases.
The placebo effect has been tested over decades and is defined as “a beneficial effect produced by a placebo drug or treatment, which cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient’s belief in that treatment.”
Nobody is coming to save you.
Being passive in your healing is giving your power away. Doctors are the first people to tell you that they don’t know everything and they have an experimental approach to much of healing. And that’s as it should be. No two people are alike so there is no one-size-fits-all type of healing.
This is one big experiment and there is no one answer. Get curious about yourself. Get curious about a cure or discover something that works for you because it could help someone else too.
Silencing your symptom.
When you’re sick, your amazing and efficient body is sending you signals that something is out of whack. What’s the first thing we typically do when we have one? Kill it. Cover it up. Take a pill to stop the symptom.
What if instead we listened to the signal and got curious about what might be causing it. If we asked and listened, tap into our intuitions, we would receive information that could alleviate the problem at its core.
Good health is something random or for the lucky few.
It’s clear that we can’t control everything, but it is our responsibility to manage our wellbeing. Tap into the belief that everything is happening for you… not to you. Your body is your greatest ally but many people treat it like it’s working against them. That is so far from the truth. Tap into the kindness, allowances, and breaks it gives you despite how you treat it, what you feed it, and how you speak to your body.
Good health is your birthright. Claim it.
What role do you play in your suffering?
Is it possible that having a victim mentality keeps a person sick? You bet your wellbeing it does!
I know you know someone whose identity is all knotted up in their suffering. Who would they be without their aches and pains? What would they talk about?
Thoughts are things and we are constantly in the creation process of our lives. If you find yourself attached to your illness, ask yourself “How does this serve me? What am I getting out of this?”
Get curious about what drives your suffering. You have needs that need to be met. Are there healthier ways to meet them?
Divorce your labels.
The majority of illnesses and diseases are transitory. However, our culture insists on adopting labels and becoming our illnesses. Why is that? Why are we so quick to assume that an illness is forever and something we’ll have to “learn to live with?”
We’re starting to understand the power of labels and using them more wisely. Instead of saying, “I am depressed”, for example, it’s recommended by mental health professionals to say, “I feel depressed.” This gives you room to not feel depressed eventually, instead of assuming you are depressed forever.
Labels are helpful to understand situations and conditions, but they are not a life sentence. Lose the labels and see them as passing waves.
Tell new stories.
Stop telling the stories about your illness. Check how you start a conversation. Your energy is palpable and contagious. Please be responsible for the energy you bring to situations.
If you start telling new stories of your health and wellbeing, you’ll soon embody it. Remember, your brain and body are listening to your inner monologue. Change the story and change your life.
Stop fighting for your limitations.
This goes back to the placebo effect. If you insist on your illness and claim it as yours, you form an unhealthy attachment to it. Remember how your cuts and scrapes healed like magic when you were a kid? That’s because you had zero resistance about it. If you simply believe that illnesses are diagnostic symptoms of a system that needs attention – and that it’s healable or fixable – you’ll open yourself up and allow the wellbeing of the universe to flow through you and heal you.
You can do mindfulness work to rewrite your story and change up the energy around you. It can be an overnight process, but most folks need to ease into it, see proof that things are improving, and then they can continue on with less and less resistance. Go at your own pace and do what feels best for you.
Choose your words.
Your words are blessings or curses. Your brain and body are listening to what you say and responding to how you think.
Use affirmations about your health. This may seem strange or like you’re faking it, but it can literally change your life. Affirm, “Thank you for my amazing health” or “My body gets stronger every day.”
Bless yourself with words of kindness, healing, and wisdom.
Ask better questions.
Instead of asking, “Why me?” ask empowering questions like, “What’s the message here for me? What’s the lesson wanting to emerge?”
One thing I know for sure is that we live in a responsive Universe. It is always answering our questions without prejudice. So, it’s just good medicine to ask questions that lead us to proactive answers instead of more evidence that supports our “why me?” stance.
When your car has an issue, most of us immediately ask, “What’s happening here? What needs to be fixed?” We don’t label it with a forever condition. No, we take it to the mechanic and expect it to be repaired.
Our bodies are just as repairable – if not more!
Let food be your medicine.
We all know that processed foods are making us fat and terribly sick. There are countless studies to confirm this. Choose healthy and whole foods that nourish your body temple. We are so abundantly blessed with natural foods that fuel our bodies for optimal health.
Whole, organic, plant-based foods might cost more but think of the money you’ll save by cutting out processed foods and beverages that contribute to death and disease. Plus, you’ll look and feel great.
Gratitude is the key to healing.
Raise your vibration. Everything is energy and you are a magnet to the thoughts and feelings you’re broadcasting. Gratitude is love and it’s the highest frequency there is. Emit that and attract more of it back to you making you a clear channel for wellbeing and healing.
Imagine yourself well.
Your body is listening to your thoughts and thoughts are things. See yourself healthy. See yourself free of all this cumbersome attachment that keeps your world small. Play in the Disneyland of your mind and visualize you at your best, most healthy self.
The imagination is the portal to all things manifested. It all starts there!
Listen to your intuition.
It knows everything. It’s your hardwire connection to Source energy where all the answers exist.
When you’re not sure about something give it the Heart Test. Place your hands on your heart and ask what it thinks about any given situation. Don’t rush to your head to “figure it out.” Rest in this space and know with confidence that the best answer will come to you – either immediately or later when you’re not expecting it.
Your intuition is subtle and the guidance comes when you are in a state of non-resistance. It takes a little practice and patience, but soon enough you’ll be entrained with your intuition and the answers come easily.
All healing is self-healing. Be easy, open, and gentle with this. You’re already wired for it. Now you just have to let your brain catch up to what your higher self has always known.
Ride the wave.
Once something has gained enough momentum in your body, a flu virus, for example, you feel sick – meaning your body has already begun the healing process. Healing requires a certain amount of energy, so your body’s symptoms take over as a means to reserve the energy necessary for healing. This is why you’re tired.
The intelligence of your body needs you down and out of the way so it can do its job and heal or regain alignment. Follow your natural impulses to sleep, rest and hydrate. When you have a fever, and as long as your body’s temperature is within a safe range, the heat is necessary for healing and your sweat will cool your skin.
We have a tendency to view symptoms as something terrible when in fact they are the outward signs of our bodies working to heal us. Many people fight symptoms or try to eliminate them altogether. This only thwarts their own healing. They have introduced resistance to the equation. The best thing to do is to surrender to the illness, unless it’s life-threatening, and ride the wave.
Do your part by listening to your symptoms and flowing with them. Seek medical attention if that’s what you feel. Get a Reiki treatment to accelerate your healing if that’s what you feel. Only you know your body, so tune in and do what feels best to be in the flow of your own healing process.
