I do what I need physically, through diet, exercise and sleeping well. But the real core is the spiritual work that I do. From that spiritual work really stems the benefits of also assisting mental and emotional healing as well. The key tool for my mental wellbeing is definitely to be grounded. Being grounded helps me feel centred, focused, and calm. Another key tool I learnt at the activation workshops through Suzanna was protecting my energy. In the same way that we look after and monitor our physical things, our money and possessions, I look after and monitor my energy. The idea of protecting my energy is to stop it from being drained unnecessarily.
Forgiveness is also a huge practice on my list of tools I received at the workshops. Knowing how to truly forgive is something I have come to understand. In itself, forgiveness is a very powerful energy-healing tool that helps to let go of pain I might be holding on to, or thoughts that are not so great. In these moments I take on the role of an observer to my thoughts, to see the greater purpose of the situation taking place and what I am learning, then I forgive it all, so then I can come back to peace and joy more quickly.
I see healing as being like an onion - it has layers. Tools, like forgiveness, give me the ability to access those deeper layers so that I can deal with things better when an upsetting situation occurs. Rather than being stuck in the emotions or mental issues for months or longer, I can process things in a healthy way and move forward, and spend less time dwelling on the negatives. For me, this is again where I have built massive trust in this road less travelled; it really has been a life changer!
I believe a person’s spiritual self is a greater being than their physical self can ever be. And as far as I’m concerned, if I’m not in touch with that at all, then of course I’m going to feel incomplete, and have a sense of searching.
Being in touch with myself and grounding into my spiritual self fills in that gap, and forms that base upon which I can build a stable, peaceful and love-filled life.
If it was possible to send a note back to yourself when you needed the most help, what would you write?
