Sacred Healing Journey

When I first started this blog, it was very important to me to recount my process of healing in the right order so my experience could help others. I was finding, though, that since I hadn't written down the process as it occurred that I wasn't remembering many of the issues, etc. once they had been worked through, this became a stumbling block for me for the blog. I've come to understand that the process will be unique for each of us, there are so many variables that will make it impossible for two people to experience the same healing journey. My past experiences, 'good' and 'bad', my hopes and dreams, my way of seeing or perceiving situations, etc. will not be the same as anyone else's.

Some of the previous posts mentioned certain ways, I happen to feel are very important to begin the healing journey. An open mind, prayer, meditation and weeding out the negative thoughts are crucial, in my humble opinion.

I also found Reiki to be absolutely indispensable! I really feel it was the Loving, Healing energy of the Divine through the Reiki that showed me the issues, gave me the courage to face them, helped me to see life and people through Loving eyes rather than through fear or hate or 'victim' mode! It helped me to learn to calm myself to meditate, to understand that the negative thoughts and beliefs and the beating up on and hating myself incessantly were creating the 'horrific' life I was living on many levels. When I began my process, I had felt I had been through enough, that I was so sick and tired of being 'sick and tired' that I asked for my healing to be gentle. What I've found is that I'm the one who had to learn to be gentle with myself. Reiki showed me this and that in any moment I can choose Love or Fear, it's always my choice!! It also helped me to see that I wasn't alone ever, that Love was an energy that could heal me and my life in every way, that Loving myself was a beautiful key that would help me to know that I was completely and forever connected to the Divine, as we all are! (imho) :).

'We teach what we need to learn' is sooo true for me, I'm definitely still in my process, my posts and wearing my Tshirts remind me 'who I am' and to stay 'in Love' when I forget at times. I am soooo much happier, Loving, joyful and able to handle the ups and downs of life 'in Love' now than I imagined before beginning my healing journey.

I hope that Love, patience and gentleness are your best friends on your healing journey too!!

Lots of Love,

Dawn Marie
