Holistic healing is a comprehensive approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. It is based on the philosophy of holism, which recognizes that all aspects of a person’s being must be taken into consideration for optimal healing and wellness. In the holistic belief system, imbalances in any one area can affect the entire person. If there is a disconnection or disharmony in one area of human life, it will have an impact on the whole person and not just that particular area of the body.
Holistic Healing can be considered as a complete lifestyle, that aims to foster balance and harmony between physical health, mental health, emotional well-being, and spiritual beliefs, with the goal of promoting overall wholeness and well-being.
What does a Holistic Healer Do?
Holistic Healer acknowledges that a person’s discomfort in life is a symptom of a disharmony in the mind-body-spirit equation. The mind refers to a person’s thoughts, emotions, and mental processes. The body refers to the physical aspect of a person, including their physical health and the functioning of their various systems and organs. The spirit refers to a person’s sense of purpose, connection to something greater than themselves, and overall sense of well-being.
In order for an individual to experience optimal health and well-being, all three of these aspects of their being must be in balance. A holistic healer’s focus is always on the entirety of a person’s condition, including their mental states, emotional well-being, attitudes, environments, and social connections because everything is connected.
It is important to remember that not all Holistic healers work the same way, each one has their own specialty and way of working according to their own expertise. Depending on the need, a holistic healer might be brilliant for your friend but not so much for you. Therefore, I always recommend people to choose their holistic healer based on their needs and what resonates with them the most. Your decision and free-will matters.
Why Healing is Important?
In my opinion, the importance of healing can best be explained by the saying: if you never heal from what hurt you, you will bleed on people who never cut you. People hurt us because they too are in pain or hurting in some way. Hurting people, hurts people! Sooner or later, someone will hurt you. You cannot avoid this, it will happen.
Most times, our lives are the extension of our previous hurts. We tend to carry previous hurts to present relationships. If you are hurt- you will hurt others. It is a loop. It is a cycle which continues unless we heal our self and break the chain. We see it every day- Unhealed Parents hurt their children. Unhealed children turn into hurt adults and in this way, the cycle continues.
The question is: Is it ever going to stop?
