These tips for healing are ones I use often. I’m fascinated by how healing happens. How you measure it and what you can do to know you’re headed the right direction. Healing is therapy but it doesn’t have to be a therapist. As long as you consistently participate in your wellness more than your suffering, you’re going the right way.
Participating in your wellness means keeping a moment by moment awareness of where you are in relation to where you wanna be. Not obsessing, or beating yourself up, but moving with ease and intention in the direction of wholeness.
Don’t just breathe, focus on your breath. For as long as you can as often as you can. This is the crux of meditation. If nothing else, it reminds you that you’re alive.
Phone A Friend.
Seriously. Call someone. Anyone that’s going to lift you up or, more importantly, that you can lift up. Isolation sneaks up on you. There’s healing in connection. Because we’re stronger together than we are apart. We’re meant to be in relation to others. So, relate.
What’s working in your life? Make a list. Write it down. Read it often. Phone a friend (see above) and share. Have you ever done this? Have you ever purposefully taken time outta your day to pay homage to the shit that’s actually going your way? That’s something. Promise. Figure out what those things are and sing praise. Hallelujah.
Literally. Write shit down. Something inspires you, pisses you off, makes you cry… Write. It. Down. Study yourself. Take notes on your behavior and experiences. Become a witness to your existence.
Love’s an action. It’s a verb. It’s something you do, show, give. Acts of love don’t always look like unicorns and rainbows. Sometimes they look like standing up, like walking away. Sometimes they look like the lesser of two pains. Don’t wait so long that your brain gets in the way. Do the thing that must be done.
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic and power in it.”
“Knowledge is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” Goethe
Everyone, e-very-one has stuff they’re working on. Stuff bubbling under the surface that needs tending to. My last tip for you is this: don’t keep secrets. Don’t walk around holding more than you can bare. Share. Your heart and your troubles and your love.
Wishing you ease of being,
