For me It took years of inner work, yoga, meditation, body work, myofascial release, energy healing, quality time spent alone and journaling to get deeper and deeper into my own self. Dealing with chronic pain demands care, self-love and compassion, and a commitment to the hard work of changing what you can and cultivating mindful self-acceptance of what you can’t. The clients I help the most are committed to truly being present in the moment and kindly embrace life.
I am a very fortunate person, now able to fully live my truth, to speak my mind from my heart, to express my feelings, my desires, and my dreams. At first it seems counterintuitive, like putting your oxygen mask on before helping others, but choosing self-love, self-care, and self-nurturing has enabled me to offer my best professional help in supporting my client's healing journeys.
My many years of experience in holistic healing and listening to clients while helping them with their unique healing journeys have taught me these 9 best personal practices:
Why are these 9 things important?
Because our emotional and psychological states of being are intertwined with our biology. Saying YES when you mean NO tenses the body and releases stress hormones. Staying in such emotional and psychological states for a prolonged period of time, being unhappy with one's self and life maintains the body in a state of tension with cortisone and adrenaline floating in the body, which prevents healing from taking place.
If you have been unhappy, tense and dissatisfied with your life and health, it will take some time to create a new state of being. The key to healing is to live from the space of our heart and soul. It’s the source of how things flow to us . . . fulfillment, joy, bigger and deeper love, abundance, fulfillment in relationships and friendships, total health and prosperity. When we are internally relaxed and happy and we make better choices for ourselves, the body is more relaxed and can heal itself. The brain releases happy hormones like dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins, enhancing internal well being.
Authentic life, from the INSIDE – OUT, is the life that’s worth living and is the first building block of your healing journey. I appreciate and am grateful for the thoughts of those clients I have helped along their way.
