From time to time, I like to invite guests to share their perspectives on sustainable health, nutrition, and lifestyles. Guests simply see the world differently than I do. I enjoy it when we arrive at similar conclusions taking very different paths.

DEFINING THE WORD HEALING
– to restore health and balance to a person, place or thing.
Healing begins with you.
This embraces the aspects of taking responsibility for yourself, a willingness to honestly look at and assess a bigger picture for what may be the various issues on all levels that surround the discomfort or illness – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – and a readiness to do what is necessary to achieve greater health and balance in your life.
It is right action, right loving, right thinking. It is self-respect and loving yourself that enables you to do what is necessary in order for you to move forward towards health and wholeness.
In the West we are usually taught that healing encompasses only the physical body. The exception is if you have an issue dealing with emotions or mental processes not treatable physically, the West may recommend psychological help as well. But that is not the only help there is because there is so much more to the word and concept of healing that we are not taught.
In truth, healing entails all levels of our being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, in order to realize the greatest portion of whom we truly are at a soul level to bring us full health. This greater understanding also allows us to move more fully towards our dreams and purpose in this lifetime.
Healing situations encompass every aspect of your life. In fact, it doesn’t matter what type of healing you are trying to achieve:
Get over the flu
Recover from surgery
Understand why you are feeling stuck in your life
Why your perspectives are changing and no one understands you anymore
How to fit in better in the world
How to find the perfect job or love of your life
Every situation encompasses all 4 levels of healing – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – in order to fully achieve full health and balance.
In truth, it entails healing on all levels of our being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, in order to realize the greatest portion of whom we truly are at a soul level. This greater understanding allows us to move more fully towards bring forth our dreams and purpose in this lifetime.
