The 10 Levels of Healing

The 10 Levels of Healing

Healing is usually a gradual, gentle process that brings about changes on many levels: spirit, body, emotions, mind, relationships with other people, and relationships with the environment. Healing is not always about curing symptoms or diseases. The process may just help you understand how to live with your problems and deal with them better.

Become familiar with the 10 levels of healing to gauge your progress:

I hear you have to do something for 3 days before your body recognizes it. I suppose that means you have to not do something for 3 days before you can replace one habit with another.
