Tonight I shared with a fellow chronic pain mountaineer some of my thoughts on healing. Then I thought, hey you might like to hear this as well:
- If you want to believe you can heal, then tell yourself you can. That is step one: Believe in the possibility. Embrace it with your heart, mind, soul, and body. Envision it. Taste it. Tell yourself you can do it.
- Never, ever allow someone ‘s opinion that you cannot heal yourself affect your determination that you can. Why should it matter whether someone else says you can or cannot heal? You get to decide that, not a doctor, clergy, friend, therapist, parent, or bum on the street. You are in charge.
- Find people who have healed themselves, and surround yourself with them. Find books, CDs, DVDs, lectures, and classes that teach various approaches to self-healing, and pay attention to what resonates for you. Hell, make up your own stuff – I sure did! To support the self-healing journey, I have collected recommended resources on the company’s natural pain relief store.
