Making Space for Your Healing Journey
Recognize this journey is about reconnecting with your True Self. It’s about nurturing your soul and meeting the need for fulfillment. It also offers meaningful engagement. Making space for your healing journey needs to take high priority so you can experience freedom from the pressure of just trying to make ends meet. In order to evolve, it’s important to shift from survival mode into thriving mode.
The spiritual path is a journey into your creative power inspiring you to live your soul’s mission. With right intention you bring the quality of consciousness into your life purpose. You get to harness the energy of your personal talents and gifts. But how can we make space for that in our already crazy, busy lives?
You can use a journal to align with your heart’s desire. It allows you to tune into your innate wisdom as you make the journey into authentic empowerment. Sometimes it means giving yourself space in your day to breathe some fresh air, notice the beauty around you, and witness what might be arising within you.
The Importance of Self-Reflection
Consider this a pilgrimage of your heart’s true desire that empowers you to reclaim your life and reveal who you truly are.
When using self-reflection, you become more comfortable making choices you know are intuitively right for you. Begin to focus on what nurtures, guides and heals you as you tap into your inner knowing and learn to trust yourself again.
We are on the precipice of change. Enter into this powerful inner journey of how your spirit responds to it, and allow the transformation and renewal it brings to your life. Making space for your healing journey can bring about inner peace. Deepak Chopra has said, “Every time you are tempted to act in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
Get ready to experience life on a deeper, more vital level once you start taking time for your life. You will gain insight to guide you to fulfilling your life purpose, pursuing your passions, and living in alignment with your true values.
Your personal beliefs, values and skills can empower choices that can best serve your interests, needs, and grow your abilities. Often we have very limited ideas about what we are capable of.
Many of these thoughts are dis-empowering and can give rise to shame, feeling incompetent, and self-doubt which can limit your experience of life. It’s akin to self-sabotage.
Believing Yourself Into Being
One way to shift into a different mindset is to remind yourself that you are a spiritual being having this human experience. Freeing your spirit to direct the life you were meant to live opens you up to a whole world of possibilities.
What is you were to look at the world with eyes of wonder? Remembering what it’s like to be child-like- exploring, asking questions from a place of curiousity. And being open to what is available for you to experience.
“It’s never too late to be what you might have been”, says George Eliot. True healing begins with healing the relationship with Self. This journey of self-discovery may even take you on an adventure of discovering the world in a whole new way.
Word of caution: When beginning a journey of recovery and healing, be patient, be kind, and be loving to yourself. When you engage in self-care, you raise your energy level to attract what is in your highest good and develop compassionate self-awareness.
This means you will be gentler with yourself and find ways to take better care of your own needs. You also enhance your understanding of what it is that you need to feel happy and content.
Allow time for integration of new insights and deepen your healing work. In other words, don’t rush through life’s experiences. Take time to process. Sit with it and notice what it brings up for you. Perhaps you’d like to journal about insights, messages, ideas, thoughts, and feelings that come to you.
Consider this process whenever you move from one cycle of growth and give birth to the next phase of your life. Honour your progress and find joy in the process.
