Whether you are dealing with an emotional wound or a physical issue, self healing can help you get back on your feet. However, it is important to note that healing is a process that takes time.
There are several types of healing practices, and only you know what works best for you. Some people may find relief through writing or art, while others might want to talk about their trauma.
Healing your body
Self healing is a natural and often overlooked ability of the body. It’s amazing how our bodies can fight off colds, heal cuts, burns and other minor injuries all on their own.
It’s also a very powerful tool to combat chronic disease and illnesses. However, it is important to note that your body has limits to its self healing power and you should always see a doctor if you are feeling really sick or have suffered a serious injury.
Self healing is a complex concept. Five body networks or processes are integral to the self-healing process: the nervous system, microcirculation/vasodilation, immune modulation, muscular relaxation/contraction and psychological balance.
Healing your mind
Whether it’s a physical wound, a maladaptive behavior (rage, addiction, shyness), or conflictual relationships, healing is a process of becoming more whole.
The mind plays an integral role in this process, and its ability to heal can be enhanced by a holistic approach that recognizes it as an integrated system. Ancient teachings and modern science agree that when we influence one aspect of our system, we affect all of it.
That’s why a healthy mental health is so important for your overall wellness. Among the most effective and practical ways to heal the mind is through deep relaxation, which counteracts stress-induced imbalances and disorders of the body’s internal systems.
In addition, there is a wealth of information about how to effectively use meditation and guided imagery techniques to heal the mind. Using these tools will help you heal your mind and emotions faster.
Healing your emotions
Emotional healing is a process where you acknowledge, accept, and integrate your painful life experiences. It can involve empathy, self-regulation, and mindfulness.
The first step in healing your emotions is to examine what triggers them. This can be done through honest self-examination, identifying patterns, and keeping a journal.
You can also use modalities such as art therapy, spiritual healing, counselling, and hypnotherapy to help with your emotional healing.
After you have identified what is triggering your emotional pain, you can then confront the issue. This may be done through crying, slamming a pillow, punching a bag, going for a run, or doing any other expression that feels cathartic at the time.
When you have faced and expressed your emotion, you can move on to the next phase of emotional healing which is acceptance. Once you have accepted your emotional pain, it will no longer be a source of stress or worry in your life.
Healing your spirit
Healing your spirit is a crucial component of healing your body. It helps you overcome your limiting beliefs, negative thoughts and negative emotions.
If you are struggling with depression, anxiety or chronic illness, consider spiritual healing as a way to help restore wellness. Physical illness and disease are often caused by energy blockages that occur at the soul level.
This can be caused by karmas from past lives or present karma that is still unresolved. If you are able to heal these blocks, you can overcome your physical health problems and begin living a healthy, happy life.
Spiritual healing is a practice that can be done on your own or with the assistance of a trained professional. It involves meditation, prayer and other techniques that can increase your sense of inner peace. It can also improve your self-esteem and confidence.
