Simple Ways to Heal Yourself and Others


The Chinese say that everything in the world
has a yin and a yang, or two opposite forces. The yin is the negative or passive force,
and the yang is the positive or active force. The yin has also been applied to darkness,
and the yang applied to light. We all know that there is a balance of darkness
and light in life, and our hope is that they balance each other out. There are times, however, when the darkness
of life’s vagaries becomes overwhelming, and we need to bring in more light, which
is what healing is all about. So how do we do this, and how do we help others? There’s no doubt that some people are more
capable of self-healing. They open their minds and bodies to allow
this to happen. They also have tools, either innate or learned,
that have worked for them in the past. Chances are, we know healers when we meet
them, simply because we feel good in their presence. In order to be a healer, you must come from
a healed place—that is, you need to be healed yourself. For the most part, healers have been on that
life path for a long time, and it has been their desired direction. You most likely know if you are one of those
people, but you also might be able to identify a healer you know. There are many kinds of healers who work in
various career paths. Here are some ideas for healing yourself and
others, keeping in mind that you cannot heal others until you yourself are healed. Self-Healing If you intuitively feel that you’re a healer,
or if someone has told you that, it’s important to trust your abilities and use them wisely. This means accepting who you are from a physical,
physiological, and spiritual perspective. It also means treating yourself in a kind,
gentle, and supportive way, just as you would support a loved one in need. In many ways, our bodies help us self-heal. For example, if you consume too much alcohol,
you might have a headache the next day and decide to rest. If you eat unhealthy foods, then you might
have gastrointestinal problems and choose to drink tea or have some chicken soup. How to Heal Yourself One way to heal yourself is to do a grounding
meditation. Begin by placing your feet comfortably on
the ground or the floor. Take three deep breaths, and with each breath,
release any negative energy. Direct your attention to the soles of your
feet. Imagine large roots extending down from your
feet and into the Earth about six or eight feet. Move your awareness to the base of your spine. Imagine your spine going deep into the earth. Feel the magnetic pull of gravity coming from
the earth’s core. Breathe in for three counts. Hold your breath and exhale for four counts. Repeat this pattern three times. When you’re ready, open your eyes. You can also practice resonant breathing. Lie on your back; breathe in for six counts
and breathe out for six counts. When you feel calm, change your breathing
pattern by breathing in through your nose, filling your diaphragm and chest full of air. Then exhale through your mouth. If you can, repeat this for about five to
ten minutes. You might feel your consciousness shift. Write down your thoughts in your journal. Establish a regular journaling practice. Start with 15 to 20 minutes, and then increase
as needed. Journaling increases self-awareness while
also allowing you to tap into your subconscious mind. You may also practice inner visualization. Focus on a troubled area, and then imagine
radiating energy outward from that place and then pulling in the universe’s energy to
that area. Imagine the troubled part feeling better and
healed. Bathe in that sensation. Healing Others If you’re a healer, you others may reach
out to you when they’re troubled. Other times, you might feel as if you need
to reach out to those who don’t readily ask for your help. You can also practice the above exercises
with those in need. Here are some other tips: Choose a safe and sacred space to meet. These individuals should be able to speak
honestly with you, sharing whatever information they’re comfortable with. Establishing trust is vital. Ask the person to get comfortable, whether
it’s by sitting in a chair or lying down in a safe place. Prepare yourself to do a grounding exercise
by connecting yourself with an imaginary cord within the Earth’s center. Next, imagine a bright, white light coming
in through the top of your head and making its way down your body. Take some deep breaths in an out, and feel
the powerful light energy. Feel the energy moving through you, and focus
on it. Some healers energize their hands by having
their palms face one another so that the energy is felt. The healers then place their hands around
the person, and the healing energy is picked up. In summary, whether you engage in self-healing
or are assisting others, the experience can be quite transformative. You might also find it to be a transcendent
experience where you go to levels of solitude and interconnectedness that you’ve never
experienced before. Enjoy the journey! Thank you and may this information useful
