Healing is the natural response when the body says, “I can.” Often in physical, mental/emotional and spiritual healing journeys, we have a tendency, as human beings to complicate matters. We have the habit of “getting in our own way.” We think we understand. As a matter of fact, we are “sure” we know the answer, until we realize we do not. Through the course of your discovery of healing on all levels of pain and discomfort, the effort within ourselves must yield to some “road rules” about physical health, emotional and mental well-being and spiritual rejuvenation. Where do you start? You begin by knowing who you are.
Have you ever had the moment in your life when you say, “I knew it in my gut,” or “I know deep down inside…” or how about “I can feel it in my bones.” Regardless of the language, culture or country of origin, every culture has expressions that talk about the body and the messages it conveys. The problem is that we do not know how right we really are.
