The Process of healing is one of waking up. We start to become aware of how we are in the world. We begin to see repeating cycles in our life and generational patterns that we are repeating.
Healing starts when we find the courage to say ‘no more’. I am ready to look at myself and my patterns and change what is happening in my life. We don’t have all of the answers in this phase, so we embark on a healing journey.
The healing journey is unique to you. For some people, it will involve time away from the family of origin, perhaps time in therapy, and possibly learning yoga or meditation.
There is a cycle we all go through while we are healing. It is the cycle of discovery, healing and then growth. As we discover, it can be confronting. It can be confronting to watch yourself push your partner away or lose it with someone you love and feel you have no control over it. This usually pushes us into healing as we ask what we can do about it and start to make changes.
As we heal, we grow. We connect with a more profound sense of self. We begin to feel more embodied and happier. We make healthier choices and have healthier boundaries. This gives us more capacity than before to have greater intimacy and energy to move towards meaningful things in our life.
