What is a healing journey?
When you are on a journey to healing it is important to keep an open mind and open heart.
Healing is not a linear journey. For all the stepping forward in the right direction, there may be many set backs. Many backward steps. Many forks in the road and many times when you will lose faith in the journey itself.
Just understand this is the journey. It’s not all butterflies and rainbows. Real healing is gritty, dark and dirty.
You will experience many dark night of the soul when you are inconsolable. The future will look so bleak that it is impossible to see the horizon ahead. But this too is the healing journey.
Understand that there is not one thing that will work but a combination of things. Try everything if that is what it takes.
Some healing modalities will stick, they will give you the stepping stone in one of the many direction that healing takes you. Some things you will try that simply will not resonate but this helps you find clearer direction by eliminating some things and pursuing others.
As the year roll by, your healing journey becomes more refined. You will find the ‘go to’ healing modalities that had previously been extremely beneficial in your healing journey will no longer be relevant. It’s a positive sign of growth. As you grow, heal and open your heart more and more your healing requirements will become more refined and more specific.
My advice is take on the attitude of an explorer. Try many different types of healing methods from a wide range of modalities however remember nothing is full proof and as individuals some specific types of healings will work. Perhaps a combination of traditional therapies and spiritual modalities will work and others only work temporarily or not at all. Just keep going. The journey is the destination.
