Who Can Heal You?

September 1, 2011
We turn to medical professionals, alternative practitioners, self-help books, even psychics, but who can really heal us?  If you’ve spent much time and money on books, lying on massage tables, being poked, prodded, and questioned you may not like the answer.

While practitioners can offer assistance, only YOU can heal you.

That might not be the news you wanted to hear, but if you think about it, it’s a great position to be in.  You are now in control.  You get to decide how to approach your healing path.  You choose who comes along for the ride with you and who is left behind (which can often make a huge difference on your health and healing).

 You may have heard of people who have tried every technique available to quit smoking, but they just can’t kick the habit while others simply quit.  The mind is a very powerful part of healing.  And without the will, healing is nearly impossible.  Take the example of smoking: when you truly decide that smoking will no longer be a part of your life, then it will no longer be a part of your life.  You may need the aid of patches or pills to assist with the physical withdrawel symptoms, but your desire for smoking will no longer be there as a temptation.

Maybe you want to improve your health: balance blood sugar or cholesterol, lose weight, or build endurance.  Whatever your goal, your will to achieve it is the best tool you have.  There is no magic pill or potion that will cause you to lose weight if you choose to remain sedentary and continue to eat foods your body cannot tolerate.

Something else to keep in mind as you decide to change your life: who will you bring along for the ride, and who will get kicked off the bus?  If you are surrounded by people who don’t share your optimism or are determined to hold you back with their own habits, you may want to consider associating with and befriending those who are more in line with your goals.Your options on how to create health and wellness are boundless!  What will you choose?
