What is Healing?
Healing as a return to wholeness; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
All of our life experiences, from the moment of conception to the present moment, are what shape us and make us who we are today. Inherently the body knows how to heal itself, yet due to our life experiences sometimes we can forget. Trauma happens and the bodies (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) can store this in a variety of shapes of form, resulting in dis-ease.
Dis-ease implies a sense of unease - or a disconnect - either with self, other or life itself; though dis-ease in one area is likely to result in dis-ease in other.
From a holistic perspective (considering the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual), ease in BEing, will manifest as a grounded mind, a healthy loving and nurturing relationship with oneself, which in turn shall be reflected in the relationship with others and all aspects of life (work, home, food, processes, etc.). A connection with oneself, and in turn the ability to share this in a healthy manner with others.
To be healthy is to be in balance, to be at ease with what is actually happening, and the willingness to experience this in its entirety, rather than running away or avoiding.
Thus supporting us in flourishing in all aspects of our life, so that we may become the fullest expression of who we can be.
Healing from a holistic perspective, is not but the elimination of the symptoms, but getting to the root cause of the problem; often recognizing that there is no problem but rather approaching it as a tool or catalyst for growth and transformation.
Furthermore all the bodies are interconnected, they are what make us a whole; and therefore the physical will affect the mental, the emotional will impact the physical and so on. For sometimes a sore throat can be the result of not expressing oneself, or stress might be the result of physical discomfort.
Often at the very root of dis-ease is a disconnect, and therefore healing can be approached as a reconnect with self and other.
