Pathways To Self-Healing

Pathways To Self-Healing

In the article Thanking Outside the Box, I asked readers to look at hardship as a gateway to healing, and wrote about a young woman whose dog helped her face an embarrassing situation in her life. A Care 2 reader shared her experience with the article, and asked for assistance in working with the emotion she had uncovered. I’d like to address her request.

From an energetic perspective, the most important power we have is choice. We don’t have to know how to heal our emotion or situation, but we must choose to do so. Once we decide that we are willing to face our pain, help arrives. It may come in small doses, over time, but it will come.

Once we see the root cause of our pain, we can create healing for ourselves. Life was designed to be a duality. Each of us enters this world to meet a challenge. I call this our Spiritual Specialty. As we face this seemingly negative situation and overcome it, we create a healing energy for all beings. We literally help the evolution of the planet and all her creatures by living our lives to the best of our abilities.

Here are some tips that might offer assistance. You may also want to read other articles on Care2, especially in the area of spirituality. I have linked to several of them on the next page — all you have to do is click on the colored text.
