Healing Journeys

I received an email yesterday from one of my distance clients. One of the things he said to me was very curious, "I wish healing was as easy as you make it out to be."

Whoa! Is this the impression I left him with? As you well know sometimes the written word does not translate as well as a face-to-face conversation. Maybe I didn't get through to him clearly.

We can take two points of view on this; one from personal experience and the other from knowing that our thoughts create our reality.

From personal experience, my healing journey has been far from easy. To quote Jerry Seinfeld,

"Life is truly a ride. We're all strapped in, and no one can stop it. As you make each passage from youth to adulthood to maturity, sometimes you put your arms up and scream, sometimes you just hang on to that bar in front of you. But the ride is the thing. I think the most you can hope for at the end of life is that your hair's messed, you're out of breath, and you didn't throw up."

As it was explained to me when I was dealing with depression and some serious layers of healing, "If you want to find peace, happiness and harmony, you have to do the work." The transformation has been painful as I'd imagine the shift from a catepillar to a butterfly might me. Although, I'm not sure anyone has ever asked the butterfly?

The second view point we could use is Abraham thinking. If we focus on how hard and challenging healing is, then it will most certainly continue to be. I really must apologize to this individual for leaving the impression that healing is as simple as waving a magic wand. But then again, if we allow our thinking to change, maybe it is?
