We can absolutely HEAL OURSELVES from so many things yet often gravitate towards the things that are not in the highest good of our health and wellbeing. This can leave us open to misdiagnosis, confusion, frustration and depression.
Society as a whole has been programmed to grab the fastest and easiest fix to just about everything. Have a headache, pop a pill. Need energy quick, grab a coffee. Feeling depressed, feed your emotions. Rushed for time, grab something from a fast food drive thru.
None of this is conducive to creating a healthy balanced lifestyle where healing naturally can even begin to occur. Rather it often leads to long time medication use, illness and so much more.
One of the most beautiful healing spaces we have is within ourselves AND out in nature yet people do not seem to understand the ability of their own bodies, minds and the connection to nature to properly navigate these incredible resources that are FREE to each and every one of us.
Our bodies are constantly regenerating and when there is illness or discomfort it's literally our bodies trying to speak to us yet instead of getting quiet and going within to listen we run to all the bandages that have been created for us instead of learning the root cause of our issues in the first place which is often times NOT listening to our bodies.
Meditation is a beautiful form of connection to ourselves and our bodies and when we learn to quiet our minds we release any resistance to thought and when we release our resistance to thought we open the doors to listening and when we learn to listen we begin to create conscious awareness and that conscious awareness turns into trust which then deepens our connection to ourselves leading to making different choices in our lives.
Nature as well is a beautiful all natural source for healing for many of the same reasons. When we disconnect from our busy lives and go out in nature undistracted from technology and noise pollution we have the ability to slow way down, use our senses, and be lulled by the beauty of our surroundings. No longer overstimulated as we experience the smells, the sounds and the feels of nature. In this space we become present, aware and begin to relax naturally experiencing more happiness and less stress because we have placed the "busy" on the shelf.
I invite you to take a look at how you listen (or don't) to your body over the next week and begin to notice any quick fixes you may lean to using. Not as a judgement but rather as a form of self love and awareness of what you, and the wonders of nature are truly capable of when given the chance.
We all have the ability to heal so much of what we believe can only be healed by outside sources, we just need to learn how.
