We really do live in a fast paced world. We want quick results and instant gratification. Whether it is losing 4 kilograms in a week, or expanding the size of your biceps in a week, right through to having pre-prepared food, buying luxury items on credit, or having liposuction at the same time as a Caeserean.
What I do know is that all bodily processes take time, and take the RIGHT amount of time as is necessary because the innate wisdom of living organisms knows what is needed, when it is needed and how long it is needed for.
With regard to healing, this is also a process that takes time. What can not be debated is that we have an amazing ability to heal ourselves, whether it be from a cut, fracture, surgery, divorce, or death of a loved one.
One of the main challenges that I face on a daily basis is communicating with people that healing takes time, and that there is no “quick fix” with true healing. Sure we can overcome pain with drugs, but to find the cause, and create the environment for true healing (not just pain relief) takes time.
Healing begins with a mindset, a determination to get better, to have more, and a willingness to see it through. Taking it on the chin in the beginning can reap great results later. But it takes someone with some guts and willingness to tolerate some pain and discomfort in the pursuit of true healing and health.
All living beings possess the ability to heal. It doesn’t matter if they have been told they have terminal cancer, or are riddled with arthritis. Healing comes in different forms. A great deal of emotional healing often occurs when people have been informed that they have a terminal condition. Whilst they may still decline physically, the potential for healing emotionally, has massive impact both for themselves and potentially the other people that are involved in the healing process.
