Are You Ready To Heal?

Illness serves a purpose. Let me first start off by saying, you do not have to be sick. A sickness is a reflection of where you are in your present physical state and does not have to hang around longer than it is needed. How long is it needed? Only you will know!

We are powerful beings with the even greater power to heal. The choices we make in our healing are often shortsighted when we are sick. That is why you seek guidance from someone else. Whether it is your Medical Doctor, Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, Naturopathic Doctor or your local neighborhood herbalist; we (as practitioners) tap in to your healing, with your permission. You invite us in to assist with your healing path but you are responsible for leading the way. You are the key to your success. You hold the cure in your DNA. But this cure can appear to be hidden, buried even, when illness has set in. Our thought process is readily compromised when we have physical and emotional imbalances. Therefore, we must sit in peace in order to move forward in healing

In your choice to exist, you make the choice to heal. If your illness has served a purpose of reconnecting you with another being, or encouraging you in speaking your truth, commanding respect in your community or by reuniting you with healing foods, this purpose proves valid. After acknowledging the purpose of the illness, we can now release it from our being. Healing starts there.

As you are working through health challenges, here are a few considerations:

  1. Why did I create this imbalance?
  2. What purpose is it serving me?
  3. How will I heal from this illness?
  4. Am I ready to heal?
