How to Honor the Healing Process 

I was gone for a minute, but I’m back now. *Logic voice*

Hahaha! I missed you guys.

You may be wondering what I’ve been doing with my time. I started gardening with my dad, and it’s been a beautiful experience. I read quite a bit. (If you want to see what I’ve been reading, head over to my Instagram.) And I’m learning how to find a healthy balance in life between being and doing.

Today I just wanted to drop a simple tip for you. Healing is something we ALL need. Whether physical, emotional, spiritual, or all of the above. It’s a natural part of life’s cycles. Honoring the process as it comes requires vulnerability. It’s guaranteed to get uncomfortable, but it’s worth the effort.

I heard once that our journey to enlightenment is like going up a spiral staircase. Sometimes the same things will come up in your life (full circle) but as you climb higher, you have the ability to respond from a new perspective/point of view.

So remember this the next time you find yourself working through things that you thought you already dealt with in the past. It’s an opportunity to go deeper within yourself. A chance to go higher.

In the wellness community there’s often this unspoken message that only positive emotions are good or should be expressed. But as you climb your staircase remember that you’re the fight and the dance. The calm and the storm. A force of nature and a tender touch. Light and dark. Embrace your joy and befriend your anger. Think positively, but don’t ignore the sadness. Let all of your emotions and feelings move through you with patience and a gentle spirit because it’s leading to your healing.
