Guide to Inner Healing

As you contact your true self, you will discover that the soul is not passive. Spirit knows more about us than we do ourselves, and it wants to support our every step toward wholeness. The soul journey has been called the pathless path because there is no map. Every person’s steps are different.

Light has the power to fill the void afflicted by darkness. Healing yourself comes in two stages—releasing the energy of suffering, then replacing it with the soul’s energy. It is a gentle process, very much like holding on to a thread as it leads you from step to step.

What begins as the merest hint of new strength will grow. Your true self is always available to meet any challenge, find any answer, and show you the way out of any dilemma.

What matters is your connection to your true self. In fear and isolation your soul seems aloof, with no power at all. But this is a perception born of following the ego, which all of us have done.

If you take the time to listen to the voice of the soul—where the ego is silent—you will be astonished at the power you have at your command, however long it has been overlooked. No other discovery in life is as joyful as regaining your true self.

Fascinating and intriguing, to know the inner self and to be able to have a hand in healing oneself is a worthwhile and self discovering journey.

The most important guidance I received from this excerpt is :

"Healing yourself comes in two stages—releasing the energy of suffering, then replacing it with the soul’s energy."

I think we often falter when we skip the first step of the two stages.......

I have actually ben writing about this as I move through my own journey. It is very true. If we are always focusing on the darkness we will never see the sun.
