Whether we like it or not, life sometimes throws us a curve ball.
Just a single word has the power to change your life.
You know those words: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, lupus. Words like those strike fear in your heart. They threaten your quality of life and possibly life itself. Sometimes the treatments are even scarier than the disease. If you have ever sat in a doctor's office and listened to your treatment options, or lack of them, you know what I mean.
Those aren't the only words that turn your life upside down. You know those words too - death, divorce, downsizing, loss.
Maybe your words rise up and call from within. Emotions and feelings long pushed down shout in your head, demanding to be heard. You tell yourself something has to give, to change. You can't go on like this.
Although these words appear very different, they are in ways very much the same. They make it clear, often in an instant, that like it or not, life as you know it will never be the same. And like it or not, to get better, you and your life have to change. With that realization comes feelings of stress and fear and pain from deep inside.
There is good news.
As scary, shocking and painful as times of upheaval are, when navigated consciously they have the power to open doors leading to profound mind body healing and transformation. If you have ever heard survivors say that cancer or divorce was the best thing that ever happened to them, this is what they were talking about.
When the wake up call comes, it places you at a crossroad that demands choice and action. With the right attitude, it can lead you from your comfort zone to positive change and blessing.
Above all, know in your heart that there is always hope. When your mind and body are given necessary nourishment and harmful substances are avoided you can feel better and get well. Today is a new day and you can make new, empowered choices with the potential to change your life. That is my hope for you.
Ultimately, only you get to choose your holistic healing path.
Do you fight change and stick your head in the sand? Do you follow a road of bitterness or give up?
Or do you choose the road of opportunity and holistic wellness by design? Natural remedies and a holistic approach, along with appropriate medical care when needed, does more than cover up your symptoms. It can bring real healing and wellness to you as a whole person. It gives you options and puts you as the head of your wellness team.
If natural holistic healing for mind, body and spirit is your choice, you are in the right place.
Know that you do have the power to influence your health and your life for the better. Know that you are not alone. Know you do not have to stay stuck or be perfect. All of life, including how well you take care of yourself, is a journey of meandering paths. And when you lose your way, no matter how often, you can always find it again.
The beauty of life is that each moment brings new gifts and new beginnings.
The first step on your holistic healing path is to take a deep breath. Reorient yourself. Prepare for your mind body healing journey. Take another deep breath. Yes, there will be twists and turns and bumps along the way. It's okay.
I'm here to tell you it is so worth it.
As you progress on your journey of holistic mind body healing you will hear and tell yourself affirming words, maybe for the first time in a long time. The past cannot change, but words like healing, joy, acceptance, love, peace, compassion, serenity, wellness, and bliss can become your present and future reality.
You may be very pleasantly surprised to realize that progress can happen with less struggle, more ease, and greater joy than you ever thought possible.
Holistic Mindbody Healing is here to help.
