I read time and time again, “The Body Heals Itself”. What do you think about that? Do you believe that the body is wise and eventually under the right circumstances rights itself and moves back to a state of healing?
Do you believe that we are born perfect and with time, wear and tear, and age, grow less perfect and more diseased and aged?
Do you believe that we are born with potential and grow and thrive?
Are we talking about the body anymore or are we talking about the whole of human existence?
Can we be healed but not cured? Can we be unhealthy in body but stellar in mind and spirit?
If we have an affliction of the body, are mind and spirit automatically affected?
If any part of us, mind, body, or spirit is affected, can we be whole, healthy, perfect or perfectly good?
Do certain parts of your body hold certain emotions or messages for you?
Do we hold stress or fear or other strong emotions in our body or are our bodies a reflection of our psycho-spiritual state?
I’ll be honest. I am not sure what I believe anymore. My training was to believe that under the right circumstances, people moved toward healing. With support in place, a container to maintain their needs, a safe space to explore, people healed that which was ill and that it was the lack of these things that created dis-ease in their lives. But I’m not sure.
I’ve come off a time in my life, well, a “past life” so to speak, where I saw the worst in people. I saw everyone hustling, playing the system, you know, working it. I saw people always taking the path of least resistance and sometimes actually running away from opportunities for growth or nurturance. It shattered all my beliefs, all that I had come to hold true and dear. If you’ve read other posts, you know I’m on a search and creating a new life. Part of that new life is looking at what I believe and throwing out what doesn’t work anymore and reconnecting with truths that still hit me in my core.
So I’m asking you, what do you believe? Are we innately wise beings that find our way to healing? Are we created in the image of something divine and whole and no matter what we are in this world, we are whole and perfect in another world? Do you believe that we’re dealt a hand of cards and we are nothing more than muscle, tissue, synapses?
Until the next blog post,
May you be healthy and thriving.
May you be filled with light and joy.
May you reconnect with the little things that bring you great happiness.
May you have peace of mind and be on solid ground.
May you love and be compassionate while being loved and shown great forgiveness.
May you be at ease and at peace.
