How Do I Self Heal? Why would I want to?
We all have our reasons to self heal. In these times of bombardment of bad news from our media sources, our friends and family may be worn from this and so many other worries that accompany it all, and we can be left feeling drained, and even scared. A potential advantage to this, is that the pain can catalyze us toward healing.
Ancestral traumas, dysfunctional Family Systems, the wounds of our own past, are a few examples of aspects of ourselves that may be calling out for healing during these times. An elder recently said:
"These times are a great opportunity to do our inner work, because those who haven't done their inner healing, will need our help."
How Do I Self Heal? Why would I want to? IE: What motivates you? Is it because you're tired of suffering? Is it because you know in you're heart there is the potential for a greater experience of life?
"Self healing is an interesting concept. In my opinion all healing depends upon the Self & blossoms through the Self."
We live in a society where most everyone has trauma. It runs rich in our veins and the veins of our ancestors. Trauma creates triggers, triggers cause fight or flight which causes reactivity, which can cause us to do things we are not proud of. It starts with FEAR.
FEAR is an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real
One main fear is the fear of the unknown. In the recovery groups I have run over the years, this seems to be the main fear of addicts seeking recovery. IE: "Who will I be when I am recovered? I know how to cope and survive with drugs, I am not sure I will be able to without them". This was expressed by myself as well in more than one set of 12 steps. "I don't believe I can do this" is the inner doubter coming through. These thoughts come in, Then when the thoughts are given words, the words can have the opposite of the desired effect we are seeking if we are not careful.
Before we speak, to have the presence of mind to ask: Is what I am about to say based in Love or fear...Let's speak Love into existence
As a man thinketh, so is he. As a man speaketh, so it comes to be,
Here I am interviewed with Lois Gurnet author of the Guide to Spiritual Evolution. I cover the following topics here:

Step 1: Be Impeccable with our words.
We create our reality through first the thoughts that we think, and more importantly, through the words that we speak. Being impeccable with our words is of the utmost importance. We speak into existence our realities. We have that much power.
“We are either unconscious, or conscious creators”
If only we knew how powerful we are. Realizing our power is not nearly as difficult as many think. Quite simple really. Our power is found inside. "I am powerful, and I can do this". You got this.
