Reflect & Evolve

"...healing is not about whether you die. Healing is about how fully you live." - Eliot Cowan (Plant Spirit Medicine...a great book!)

In the western world, we have come to consider health as simply the absence of disease.

This week's reflection challenges this notion.

Healing is an act of self-love. Healing requires a commitment to your daily mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Healing cannot come from outside of yourself, although there are many foods, herbs, skin preparations and so forth that can provide your body & spirit with nourishment to help.

If we want to live to our fullest capacity, we must seek to uncover all the things that cause us "dis-ease" and change them. Dis-ease can take on many forms. Maybe you find yourself short-tempered with your mother. Maybe you find that your job causes you unwarranted stress. Maybe guilt from abusing your body has built up behind the scenes. Maybe you are in an unhealthy relationship with your spouse, friend, sibling or self.

This week, let's take time to identify the areas of our lives that cause us dis-ease. If anything we do makes us unhappy, let's stop to discover why.

Now is the time to re-evaluate how we choose to spend our time. We can choose to continue doing things that are unsatisfying to us or we can choose to do things that bring us joy.

In this global space of uncertainty, we may find solace in the idea that the universe rewards those who CHOOSE healing regardless of the circumstances.
