You Are Your Own Healer!

Did you know that you are responsible for your own healing? Usually we think we need to go and see someone else when we have a problem be it a doctor, a counselor, a chiropractor, a minister, etc. The thing is, these people can only help us to a certain extent. They can bind up our wounds, give us new information or a new perspective, but ultimately the rest is up to us and our intentions!

Take a look at doctors (allopathic, homeopathic, or naturopathic). We go to them when our bodies need some sort of physical healing. Very often, we get better after taking their advice. Is it because their treatments always yield results? While you could argue that certain treatments work better for some people than others because of factors like DNA and body chemistry, not everyone is healed. Some people get more sick or even die from the intended cure.

The differences are based on life path and intention. There are times we choose to end our lives through a particular illness or injury, and usually there is a subconscious goal in mind. Illness can serve to teach lessons or heal relationships. Although we perceive the sick person as wanting to live on, there may be an important goal that death can accomplish in that moment.

The fact we are our own healers is probably best illustrated by those addicted to alcohol or drugs. Treatment does not work if a person is unwilling to admit he/she has a problem. When the addiction gets bad enough to land the person in jail or kicked out of the house, the person begins to realize change is needed. It is at that point of awareness the person decides to seek help. While the he/she may attribute the change to treatment or AA, it is ultimately the person's desire to change and the commitment involved that leads to recovery.

If there is an area in your life that needs to be healed (physical, mental, emotional or spiritual), understand it is up to you to create the change! Ask questions. Follow up on new leads. Be willing to do the work. It is up to you to create the changes necessary for growth and empowerment. It is up to you to heal yourself!
