Therapeutic Healing

Enhancing your ability to be "body aware" has been described as a key element for therapeutic healing often being categorized as the mind, body, spirit approach. This therapeutic approach combines the known with the unknown to encourage concentration, focus, relaxation which will eventually lead to a sense of accomplishment, and well-being.

Clear Perception

Awareness is the capacity for introspection and having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. The added ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning is a often called a state of heightened awareness. With practice we can learn to engage these types of heightened states which will allow us to see these new opportunities of awareness as glimpses of greater knowledge. This type of intuitive insight remains mostly unknown to the pure rational thinking mind.

Follow your Higher Self

By following your higher awareness rather than the voices of those around you telling you what you should or should not do, you allow the higher sense innate in each human to begin to see things in a way that brings an entirely new light into difficult situations. This is a vital ingredient in the creation of a better world and a healthier you. It is a spiritual insight that is undistorted by half-truths, selfish desires and emotional illusions.

Focus Completely on your Task

Being present and focused completely on a task, and only that one task by setting aside everything else and just being present is an ability that will allows everything else to fade away. This leaves only you and whatever you’re dealing with right now to be brought into this state of higher awareness.  Think of mindfulness and meditations as mental skills to control emotions and to soften the impact that external events that often bring difficulties in your life, such as relationships, money, or other stressful events which all have a profound effect on your health.

The Body a Scared Garment

The body is a sacred garment.  It is our duty to take care of our body’s needs by being aware of the wisdom it possesses.  The body rights and needs can only be trampled on with peril. The body ought to be the soul's best friend. If a person doesn't breathe deeply they will eventually reduces the life of their body. If they don’t move freely, they restrict the life force of their body. If they don't feel fully, they narrow the life of their body and its creative self-expression which will be constricted. Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude.
