Becca, is there some lesson I need to learn before I can heal?
Frustrated in San Francisco

Dear Frustrated:
Pain and illness may be your body’s wake-up call that it is overstressed by poor diet and lifestyle, or by exposure to toxins, negative emotions or limiting beliefs. If you listen to the body’s first signals and make a change, you can recover more quickly than if you wait for a knock-out punch of serious or chronic illness.

“People change and heal when they have learned the lesson that the illness was trying to teach,” explained holistic counseling teacher Amara Karuna. “Pain and disease are always calls for attention from the body and soul. They are like flags showing where energy is stuck and blocked, and in need of loving and help.”

Making the decision to take responsibility for our own suffering and making the changes needed in our lives is the first step, according to Karuna. “It is essential to understand that no matter how the pain got there, we are the only ones who can really take care of ourselves,” she said. “Don’t wait for someone else to love and care for you. Do unto yourself as you would have others do unto you. Also, reach out for support and help from others.”

“The mind-body system has almost unlimited self repair capabilities and any positive physical, emotional, and mental behavior will enhance a person’s self healing abilities,” said Serge Kahili King, PhD, Huna philosopher, teacher and author.

I encourage you to try stress reduction through yoga, meditation, chakra balancing… whatever works for you. And use your intuition to guide you to the right person to help you move toward positive change in your health and in your life.
