The Good, the Bad, and the Lovely
I started becoming very interested in how healing occurs when I became a Chiropractor. Why do some people heal and others don’t? Healing comes from the Greek word haelen which means to be whole. Sickness or disease is separation. I became obsessed with helping other people heal to heal themselves. We forget that we are all healers, but we are the healers of ourselves. I can’t heal you, only you can heal yourself. Doctor comes from the Latin word docere, which means to teach. My purpose is to teach you how to heal yourself and how to be in a state of wellness for the rest of your life.
I am going to share with you 3 important factors you can do on a daily basis that will help you heal yourself now and keep you in state of well-being for the rest of your life.
The first one is to look at the things that happen in your life differently. Actually that is what true forgiveness is. For you to give up your perception of what you think happened. Forgiveness is always a prerequisite for a miracle to occur. A miracle is a change in perception.
Most people have a perception that something is either good or bad. Like praise and criticism, one is considered good and one is considered bad. If we get praised all of the time then we will never truly learn from our mistakes. Our ego can get really big to make us think that we are better than everybody else, and that can put us off center. On the other hand, when we are criticized, it can actually be something good. We can learn from it and it can make us more resilient, resolved, and not afraid to take action. However, if we take the criticism negatively that can put us off center. To be centered is to have your soul and your mind aligned into one. Soul means spirit of unconditional love. When we are aligned, that is where we are whole, and in a state of well-being. When we judge anyone, anything, or any event that might have occurred to us, it is making us off our true center.
There are 2 forms of judgement:
1. Vertical, Looking up at somebody or looking down at somebody.
2. Horizontal, Being in a state of infatuation (only looking at the so-called positive traits of a person)or being in a state of resentment (looking at only the negative traits of a person)
We need to remind ourselves to be in an equanimity state where we see everybody as equal. Don’t put somebody on a pedestal, don’t put them in a pit, but put them in your heart. That is the state of unconditional love. We need to be equilibrated which means to stop judging something as being good or bad. When these things happen in our life we need to remind ourselves to come back to our center. That is when we are whole or healed.
The second thing we can do to heal ourselves is to be in a state of gratitude. An attitude of gratitude. The reason behind this is because being grateful puts us in our present state of mind. When we are in our present state of mind, our soul and mind become aligned, therefore creating balance. There are no past judgements and no future expectations. The past brings guilt and the future brings fear. Healing cannot be accomplished in the past. It must be accomplished in the present to release the future.
The third thing is always to be in a state of love. Love is the synthesis and synchronicity of complementary opposites. In other words, love is equal support and challenge. There is no opposite to love, because it is in the middle when you are in perfect alignment. In order for us to be in love, our soul and mind must be in alignment because that is where you will feel unconditional love. Love is light and light is life. Love is the only thing that is real because it cannot be destroyed. What is hidden from light cannot be healed. Love can’t enter where there is one spot of fear. We must shine our light to let other people shine their light.
Remember the 3 important factors in healing yourself or staying in a state of wellness:
1. Don’t Judge.
2. Attitude of gratitude.
3. Be in a state of unconditional love.
Gratitude and love are the world’s greatest healers. That is what grace is. Wellness is equal support and challenge. Illness is when challenge is greater than support. Wellness is we are all part of the universe. Illness is I against the universe. A Balanced mind equals a balanced body. There is a divine force that wants us always to be in balance. By healing yourself you learn of wholeness and by learning of wholeness you learn to remember God.
