Why Healing Matters

Why Healing Mattersfeatured

“We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Healing isn’t a beautiful untouched process–it’s a process of unfolding. Of peeling back the layers and rediscovering your heart, reclaiming your mind. For this it takes the courage and strength of being vulnerable. It’s a key piece for healing. To be and live your authentic truth.

Healing is about walking toward your life with a sense of grace. Being able to leave behind everything you thought you knew to live a life of peace and freedom. It’s possible–it always has been.

It’s not a perfect process, it’s un imperfect one. It teaches you to rest in your discomfort, in your fears, guilt and shame and not judge it. You’re not here to run away from yourself, you’re here to fall in love with yourself. It’s not easy, but it is transforming.

Healing is the process of becoming your own lover. Not depending on outside and external sources to validate your worth. You are already worthy and completely whole. Healing is about remembering who you already are and the love you hold.

Healing is being present with your life and accepting all that is. Being able to find the wisdom in your pain. Not defining yourself by your suffering, but observing it. Having the courage to sit with your life, not escape it.

Sometimes you must cry, sometimes you must laugh. Feel your pain, but also let it go. Let it go. That way you can make more space for peace and joy. Let go of the stories you tell yourself, all that heaviness you carry.

Healing is about learning to surrender. Be kind during this process and find the room in your heart to be the love you need to heal. Healing is recognizing the darkness, but turning towards the light. Let the light guide you back home.

Healing is messy and it’s beautiful. It’s a life long journey of re-membering who you are. Your basic goodness. Your joy, your humanness.

It’s a process that you continue to come back to. It never ends, it only continues to unfold. Healing means learning to love over and over again. It means letting go of what no longer serves you to live a life worth loving for.
