Self Healing – What is it and How Can it Help You?

Self healing is an innate process of the body and mind to promote mechanisms that return to equilibrium, helping relieve pain. It can be regulated and optimized through multimodal integrative therapies that act on the whole person.

The key is deep relaxation, done several times a day. It will re-balance your system, especially when you are facing fears or challenges.

1. Be kind to yourself

People who are in the process of self healing are very sensitive to small things. They can easily cry over small things, get offended by a word and even be angry over trivial issues. This is because they have inner wounds that need to be healed. When these wounds are left untreated, they can lead to depression, anxiety and even despair.

One of the most important aspects of self healing is being kind to yourself. This means being mindful of negative self-talk, accepting that it’s okay to make mistakes and focusing on what brings you joy.

Another way to be kind to yourself is to take time for self-care every day. This could be something as simple as writing in your journal or taking a short walk in nature. It’s also a good idea to surround yourself with positive people who support you and make you feel happy. This will help you heal faster and feel more connected to yourself.

2. Take care of your body

Caring for your body is not always easy, but a little bit of science and quite a lot of common sense tells us that the more we do to help our bodies heal themselves, the better. This may mean getting a little more sleep, eating a healthier diet and not grabbing that second slice of cake.

Ancient teachings and modern research increasingly concur that your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being are part of one integrated system. This means that if you change something in one area, the other two will often change too.

It’s not likely that your self healing journey will be a smooth ride up the mountain, you will probably dip down a bit sometimes and perhaps even get really low from time to time. But remember that climbing a mountain starts with taking just one tiny step. So choose one aspect of your healing that seems like the hardest and make a plan to do just 1% better than you did before.

3. Take care of your mind

Taking care of yourself mentally is an important part of your self healing journey. Emotional traumas and thoughts can trigger physical illness, so learning to love yourself enough to be honest with yourself is a vital step in your healing process.

Having a healthy mindset is also essential to being happy and living the life that you deserve. Spending time each day meditating and practicing gratitude can help clear your mind of negative thoughts and emotions. Reading books that teach you how to master positive traits can help you achieve this as well.

Some of these include Energy Medicine: Balancing Your Body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality by Donna Eden or You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Joining a healing circle with other people who are committed to helping you heal can also be beneficial as group energy is focused on a common goal which will aid in your recovery. Consider trying supplements that are designed to boost the effectiveness of your natural healing mechanisms as well.

4. Take care of your relationships

A healthy sense of self is vital to creating and maintaining healthy relationships. It allows you to negotiate expectations and set clear boundaries. It can also help you say “no” when someone wants something from you that does not align with your own priorities.

Developing a strong sense of self can also help you to cope with relationship trauma. For example, if you find yourself experiencing feelings of anger and rage after a breakup, it can be helpful to learn how to manage these emotions in a healthier way. This could involve talking to a therapist or support group, practicing relaxation techniques, or slowly exposing yourself to the things that trigger you.

It can also be useful to work on repairing old wounds that are disproportionately impacting current, unrelated situations. This may require the assistance of a therapist, such as one that offers online counseling services through Regain.
