The Heart of Healing Blog

2013:  A Year of  New Beginnings

“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.”    (Confucius)

Lotus_Flower_by_Starfire_013I’m thrilled to start 2013 with all of you, sharing a new website, a new blog, and a new book, The Heart of Healing: Discovering the Secrets of Self-Care. I’ve envisioned this book for decades, after physical therapy clients encouraged me to write about our sessions so others could benefit from them, and from the use of Self-care practices.  The birth of this book seemed like the longest pregnancy on record to me. It is now time to give birth and bring this new “baby” alive, in service to our individual and collective healing. However, this healing will not occur through my words, but through the heart-and-soul wisdom and guidance that arises in each reader as insights and Self-care practices are applied.

The Heart of Healing describes the heart-and-soul journey and evolutionary process that occurred as I witnessed and experienced the healing journeys of clients, colleagues, family, friends, and my Self.  It recounts the journey home to our heart and authentic Self that occurs through healing, and reveals how the journey and Self-care practices guide us to empowering discoveries at the heart, or core, of our being. Through client and personal sessions I was shown that healing is often a lifelong process of growth and development, not always a single life event. Clients and I also learned that healing is stimulated each time we commit to showing up, being present, and connecting with our heart-and-soul paths.

Like the symbolism of the lotus, healing reflects a journey of regeneration and rebirth that brings awakening and enlightenment. Lotus flowers provide inspiration for us when we face healing challenges. They manifest pure beauty as they emerge through murky, dark waters. We, too, are summoned to rediscover what is beautiful as we trudge through swampy waters during healing. The lotus plant’s stalk bends easily, but is very hard to break because of its strong fibers. Healing reminds us of what is unbreakable and infinite in our core being, each time we reconnect with our heart and authentic Self on healing journeys. And, like the lotus, we also reach toward the Light for nourishment and guidance during healing.

We will explore healing together through this blog, learning and growing in ways that stimulate healing for ourselves, our families, our communities, and our world…..one person at a time. Like the constellations above, we are all interconnected and interdependent; we are all conduits of healing for ourselves and one another. It is now time to activate this connection to maximize well-being, promote world healing, and facilitate a return home to our hearts.

As a first step, I invite you to answer the Healing Questionnaire under the Publications tab on my website. This will increase your awareness and set a foundation for deepening Self-awareness during healing experiences and Self-care practices we will explore in future blogs.

 

Namaste…(the Light in me honors and bows to the Light in you)
