“If I heal my ankle I won’t have to worry about it again.” Is that true? When we read about others healing process it makes it seem that the healing is permanent. We don’t believe so. Healing is an ongoing process.  


When we catch a cold or break a ligament we must go through some form of healing. The purpose of these circumstances in which call for us to “heal” is because we aren't taking care of ourselves. We come across these circumstances in order for us to reflect and be aware of our “inner world”. For example, when we catch a cold we allow ourselves to eat healthier foods and rest. When we heal from our sickness how many times have we reverted back to our old paradigm that allowed us to get the sickness in the first place? The point in healing is for us to be aware of our inner world in relation to our outer world. This is something that we will be doing for the rest our time on the physical plane making healing an ongoing process.


When we go through healing it’s uncomfortable. It forces us to really analyze how well we have taken care of ourselves and how our self-care has gotten us to the point of where we are now. In many cases, healing has had a negative connotation because many think it means that something is wrong with us. That can further from the truth. Healing is apart of our learning process. It is apart of how we move toward expansion in this world. It’s an opportunity to transmute any “negative” circumstance into something that benefits our personal growth. The truth is that everyone has experienced a “negative” or traumatic experience. Everyone in this world needs healing. To truly embark on our journey of healing we have to be honest with ourselves which many in the collective can’t come terms with.


The good news is that we don’t have to embark on this healing journey alone. There are many ways we can find support on and offline. The best thing we can do is connect yourself with like-minded individuals online or offline in a community. If we have any family or friends in our life who aren’t on a similar journey chances are they may not resonate. A common theme in the collective is that many want to stay in the “victim” mindset and not come to terms with their circumstances. They find it easier to blame it on others and “move” on. Ironically what happens is those events and emotions will keep circulating in their life until it’s addressed. The truth is that every event and circumstance we have attracted in some way consciously or subconsciously. We needed that particular event to teach us something that is valuable on our journey. In order for us to learn the lessons needed on the physical plane, we must take accountability for what we attract. Below are the tips to keep in mind when on our healing journey.

Healing: The Ongoing Process Tips


  1. Be patient: This is a hard one but something we must learn when on any journey. As mentioned above this is an ongoing process so we shouldn’t put pressure on ourselves to “get” through certain events quickly or suppress any emotions.


  1. We won’t have all the answers right away.: When we start our journey we don’t need to have all the answers. If we are willing to show up the answers will come to us.


  1. Utilize on and offline communities.: If we want to seek a different set of eyes or perspective discuss with someone or find someone that is an expert in what we are searching for guidance. 


  1. Be creative. : It may be helpful to express the emotions and lessons on our healing journey in a creative way. Journaling, painting, and poetry are great ways to release our emotions and turn them into something creatively meaningful.


At the end of the day, healing is a personal choice. No one else can do the work for us but ourselves. No one can hold us accountable but ourselves. If we choose to embark on this journey that alone is a big step in our own personal transformation and should be celebrated.

Lots of love,

Thank you! I will forward it to the publishers.  I just need a brief bio at the end.

Hello to you both. Thanks for this article.  I'm asking for a little revision: can you convert the second person point of view to the plural "we" or the objective third person?  Then it would meet magazine guidelines for publication.
