A week ago, I had the good fortune to see a new documentary called Heal that was about a decade in the making. It featured all the leaders in the self-help, self-healing, anything-is-possible world including Deepak Chopra, Joan Borsyenko, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Anita Moorjani, and many others.
Overall it was a love letter to the human body and the amazing things it can do given the right situation, environment, and a positive mind. Healing is not just a physical experience, it’s emotional, spiritual and mental.
Healing is a tricky business in that we have to believe that we can. Getting a handle on our brain and using it for our own best good can be quite the feat. We also have to find others in our circles who believe we can heal as well and then, probably most importantly, we need to commit to the process. We don’t heal in any way just because we have a desire, we also have to put action behind it.
Finding your healing team, whether it be from physical or emotional trauma, illness, or otherwise can come in fits and starts. It can sometimes even be you powering the team of one until you find the troops you need to wage the love war to recovery.
The truth is we are all in need of healing something. Some things we are able to push down and ignore and others show up and demand our attention. Life will push us around, and it will feel a lot like a good beating at others, but I also believe it’s doing so to get our attention and drive us to our best. Without being forced there are some things we’ll never attend to, never acknowledge, never act on. That’s where life intervenes and calls us to find new ways to thrive, new ways to rise above, new ways of being.
Life will call us to heal and it depends on each of us whether we answer or let it go to voicemail.
I encourage you to say, hello. You never know what might happen next.
