In this world we live in, we share EVERYTHING. We tweet or post about our feelings, we share stories and dig deep to find our souls meaning over coffee with friends. We over analyze situations to make them work in our favor, and we share some of our deepest feelings with others. Sometimes, when we don’t share, we almost feel guilty. Like we are keeping something from a close friend. I mean if you aren't willing to share it, maybe you shouldn't be doing it correct?
When it comes to healing, I genuinely believe that is yours and yours only. Clearly I am telling you about my healing process, but I refuse to share every gritty detail. In fact there have been times where I have been hesitant to share for a fear of over sharing. When you work so hard at something, or when you have an inner struggle only you can truly understand, getting through the process is part of the process. Sometimes you come to a point in your life where you need to do things because they may work for YOU, and because you have nothing to lose in exploring new ways to heal yourself.
Over the past month I have had dozens of people contact me saying that they would love to experience a “healing” journey like my own, but their friends, significant others and family would never understand why they would go to an energy healer?! BONKERS. They would be laughed at. It hurts my heart a bit when I hear this, because I realize how much energy we put into what other people think. How much we feel the need to share and be open about every little detail of our lives.
We need to bring that energy back to ourselves. If you choose to seek help from a Shaman or a Holistic Doctor, get acupuncture or go for a quick relaxation weekend, that is your choice, no one else’s. We have this fear, so to say, about being viewed upon as selfish. But doing things for yourself, for your soul is just as important as eating and sleeping. BE KIND TO YOURSELF. I mean it. Please be kind to yourself. This journey is YOURS. NEVER EVER LOSE SIGHT OF THAT. Trust me when I say, when your soul is at peace with itself, your relationships with others and your view of the world around you is far more amazing than you can envision.
Think about it, can you imagine holding yourself back from being your best self because of someone else's opinion? It almost seems ridiculous doesn't it? And you can’t blame them for holding you back, you can only blame yourself. Do not waste one more second of your life and your well-being on what others may think of you. After all, this is your life to live isn't it?
What an incredible month it has been for me. I have never felt more connected to myself and my soul, and I am relishing in every moment. I am taking in all of the changes and giving myself a well deserved pat on the back for sticking it out, and working through the hardest times to find this peace. I wish the same for you. All of you. I am also so grateful for the support of my family, friends, co-workers and you. My journey is just beginning and I am learning every day that there is so much to be said for keeping things close to your heart.
