The Point of Healing…Part 2

Written by on October 20, 2005 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

If the wound is in your emotional self – and all real wounds are – you can’t rationalize it away, because it’s not a thought. It’s an emotion. A thought, a concept doesn’t wound anyone until it’s taken to heart, until its arrowhead finds its mark there and pierces your sense of self. And likewise, a thought, a concept doesn’t free anyone until it becomes an organic part of you, a part of your emotional reality.

While intellectual understanding is a good and necessary first step, it is only a step in the total process – not the end all. Until our emotional reality is in line with our intellectual one we’re still in the same room…perhaps with the door ajar, but still stuck in that same room.

For our thoughts can open doors and we can see what lies beyond those doors, but our emotions are our legs…or wings, and it is through them that we move forward to our freedom or stay put in our prison.

That is our point of healing. Emotional healing, and it occurs through Spirit – our spirit and the Spirit that is the energy and force of life, itself. Intellect can bring us understanding, and that understanding can be emotionally cathartic, but Spirit – in whatever way you perceive it – takes all that, adds itself to it and creates a wonderful synergy, which is the healing.

I believe all healing is spiritual – no matter what the catalyst or form it takes or how you would categorize it. All healing occurs on a spiritual level within the womb of compassion, the center of the heart…your heart.
