This week, I am continuing on the theme of natural, self-led healing from last week's letter about how we all need a little proof that the natural route works sometimes.
This week I am writing about steps 4 through 6.
The concept is one of going to back to the basics of healing. What is healing? What does it truly mean? And how do we initiate it? How do we feel less lost and less powerless in the face of challenge, be it a physical challenge or an emotional challenge (are they really that different after all?).
The 6 steps of healing can be used to heal any issue, emotional, physical, spiritual or mental.
We can bring any issue we are struggling to resolve through these 6 steps and get clear guidance and direction for how to move forward.
These 6 steps of healing are an incredible potent tool for anyone and everyone to take their power back and tap into their own wisdom and self-healing abilities. Going through these 6 steps in sequential order will also ensure that you don't jump to conclusions and use more invasive tools than you may need.
Here they are:
Step 4: Stimulate or Sedate. Hot or cold water, many herbal tinctures, acupuncture.
For every stimulation/sedation, there is an opposite sedation/stimulation, sooner or later. Addiction is possible if this step is overused.
Physical Healing Example: After nourishing yourself and using gentle methods, you realize you may need a little more power behind a healing plan. They you may use an herbal tincture or go get acupuncture for hormonal balance.
Emotional Healing Example: Maybe you are trying to relax around work so your relationship with your partner isn't so strained, but you decide you also need to take a hot bath each night or three times a week.
Step 5a: Use Supplements. Synthesized or concentrated vitamins, minerals, and food substances such as nutritional yeast, blue-green algae, bran.
These substances may do as much harm as good. You can see that this is step a lot of people jump to immediately, but in these 6 steps of healing you may find that steps 0-3 give you what you need and that would be much less invasive.
Physical Healing Example: Using supplements to support your healing from endometriosis.
Emotional Healing Example: Using supplements to change your mood or manage your stress.
Step 5b: Use Drugs. Chemotherapy, tamoxifen, hormones, high dilution homeopathics, and potentially toxic herbs.
These substances may do as much harm as good. You can see that this is step a lot of people jump to immediately, but in these 6 steps of healing you may find that steps 0-3 give you what you need and that would be much less invasive. This step is where most conventional health care providers will start.
Physical Healing Example: Using synthetic birth control to manipulate endometriosis systems.
Emotional Healing Example: You start using hormonal replacement therapy to help you mood.
Step 6: Break and Enter. Threatening language, surgery, colonics, radiation therapies, psychoactive drugs, invasive diagnostic tests such as mammograms and C-T scans
Side effects, sometimes including death, are inevitable.
Physical Healing Example: You get surgery to remove your ovaries as a solution for endometriosis pain.
Emotional Healing Example: You use antidepressants or anti-anxiety drugs.
I invite you to pinpoint a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual issue you are currently dealing with on some level and take that issue through these first steps.... and see what unfolds!
If you'd like to share with me, please do! I would love to hear.
