“The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.” Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus
Affirmation: the act or an instance of affirming; state of being affirmed. 2. the assertion that something exists or is true. (Dictionary.com)
What do you need to affirm? What do you need to heal? When I started this post, I imagined a healing tree firmly rooted in the earth with tentacles reaching out into the universe; touching and healing everyone and everything in its path. The tree affirmed all life and we did same. I believe in the reverberating power of a positive act, honoring the body’s innate generative intelligence, coaxing our healing and helping us seek expert counsel. I’m aware that when we visualize a positive outcome for difficult situations and consciously take actions that benefit all, no matter what the end result produces, even if our worries don’t fully cease; we have acted for the collective good… Think good, healing thoughts, for we are what we plan to be… By serving the collective, we begin healing ourselves. ~ My body is strong and healthy.
“The only work that will ultimately bring any good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world.” Marianne Williamson
I was going to write about the power of positive affirmations and positive thinking as additional aids to help us address, forgive, and heal a wide range of emotional, mental and physical matters; abuse, betrayal, anger, disease and such. However, affirmations work best when our blessings are focused and directed with an open heart to also help others heal. They do not replace professional care but serve as a complement to other healing options we explore. When there is reluctance to seek help, we can encourage each other to seek healing and send healing through our prayers, thoughts and via Reiki or energy. Sometimes, words are not enough. Every step we take visualizing a positive outcome in our lives and the lives of others, is a step honoring our own healing… ~ All is well in my life.
“Healing, Papa would tell me, is not a science, but the intuitive art of wooing nature.” W. H. Auden
Healing doesn’t occur in a vacuum. Our daily interactions, our thoughts, our positive actions and efforts contribute something to the whole. We are always in the process of regeneration; renewing and healing ourselves and, by extension, offering hope and thereby healing energy to others. Healing is about doing the necessary soul and body work before us; caring for our well-being, being compassionate with ourselves and others; paying attention to our stuff, extending our insights and knowledge on what helped our healing process to others, which invariably opens the door to help another heal. By sharing the flame of healing and love, we touch all. ~ I am a conduit for peace, bliss, and blessings.
