Healing comes from within ~ To heal you need to take your power back...
Occasionally, I have a new client who says to me ‘Are you going to fix me?’ They are surprised when I tell them ‘No…only you can fix you. I can guide you and facilitate your healing, I can give you tools to empower you to heal, I can relax your body to allow that healing, but whether you heal or not is up to you.’
Your body has the most amazing and innate healing intelligence. Why do we even question whether we can heal? Have you not observed a deep cut heal or realised the body creates osteoclasts to mend a broken bone?
When we are new to the concept of healing energy, it is sometimes difficult to imagine the fact that we are all made of energy, not matter. Every cell, atom and molecule is pure energy. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, this energy flows into our body through our chakras and then along our meridians, to wherever it is needed. Blocks in our chakras and meridians caused by stress, traumas, negative thoughts and beliefs interfere with this flow, sometimes causing illness and disease.
All energy vibrates at different rates and even modern medicine uses diagnostic machines e.g. ECGs which utilise this concept. The ECG energy patterns can reveal many things about the person’s heart through the interpretation of the beating human heart – whether it is regular or erratic etc. Unfortunately medicine views the human body more as a bio mechanism, than a vibrational energy system.
There are many and varied reasons why people do not heal. In her book “Why People don’t Heal and How they Can’, Caroline Myss illuminates the hidden interactions of belief and body, soul and cell to show how, as she puts it, "your biography becomes your biology." This is a must read book for anyone interested in rebuilding their body, mind and spirit…and yes… for healing to occur, we need to focus on all three. We have all been touched by certain illnesses in ourselves or those close to us, which, after the ‘cut, poison and burn’ of medical intervention, often still does not completely heal the body of the wounds of the mind and heart…and once again the original disease returns, often to other parts of the body. Inna Segal’s ‘Secret Language of the body’ also explores how different emotions are trapped in our various body parts and how we can release them.
From my personal experience and through working with clients and close family and friends, I believe that it is essential to take our own power back. How many of us expect Doctors and therapists to heal us, without taking any responsibility for our own healing? We allow ourselves to be distracted and avoid doing the work we need on ourselves by focusing on others; or we work harder than ever...to avoid feeling.
This IS the time, to take the time just for YOU, take time out from your busy life, bring yourself into the present moment …and ask your body what it needs to return it to optimal health. Silence your mind, and listen, because it will tell you. Your body knows what you need right now…is it exercise, sleep, fresh unprocessed foods, Meditation, Yoga, or nurturing, gentle bodywork?
One thing is sure…at such times you need extreme self-care, including all of the above. No distractions to take you away from the present moment, just self-love, self-nurturing and some tools to bring you back to balance. If this resonates with you, then book in for a Reflexology session, which is the major tool I use to relax your body and mind to allow healing.
