What Does Healing Mean to You?

There are so many things I hear people say about healing…

“I’m scared of what may be on the other side.”

“I don’t want to forget…”

“If I cry, I may never stop.”

These sentiments echo through the hearts of many who know and feel that they want something different, but they may not know exactly where to begin.

When we choose different, it may seem like a difficult road riddled with unknowns, a scary place to challenge our deeply held beliefs and resistance to relinquishing control.

Fear of the Unknown

One of the most common fears is the uncertainty of what lies ahead. Healing requires us to step out of our comfort zones into a foreign place. Of course, this fear is natural as our instincts try to protect us from potential pain. However, it's important to remember that while we cannot predict the future, the future may hold the promise of a better, more fulfilled life.

Fear of Forgetting

Another fear that often arises is the fear of forgetting. By healing, we fear we might forget important aspects of our past—especially those tied to loved ones or significant memories. Healing doesn’t mean erasing memories. Instead, it can be about letting go of the pain so that we can allow more joy (or whatever you want more of) in.

Fear of Losing Control

Also common is the fear that our emotions will overwhelm us if we allow ourselves to feel them. Many people resist crying or expressing their emotions because they fear they might never regain control. Did you know that releasing pent-up emotions is a vital part of the healing process? It allows us to cleanse our spirit and unburden ourselves—mentally, physically and emotionally.

The truth is: healing brings transformation. Transformation may be gradual and sometimes subtle, but each step forward–no matter how small–is progress.

What are some steps you can take towards healing?

  1. Acknowledge Your Fears: Recognize that fear is a part of life. Take some time to write them down and reflect on them. Identifying your fears can be the first step in overcoming them.

  2. Seek Support: Healing is a journey that is shared with others. Reach out to trusted friends, family, or seek a professional who can provide support and guidance.

  3. Be Patient with Yourself: Healing is a process that takes time and energy. Be kind to yourself and allow yourself the time and space to heal at your own pace.

  4. Open the Door to Change: Change is an integral part of healing. By embracing change with an open heart and mind, it is much easier to receive new information and small, easy ways to apply it.

  5. Celebrate Small Victories: Every step forward, no matter how small, is a victory. Celebrate your progress and acknowledge your strength in building your resilience.
