Where to Begin

By linda leigh · July 25th, 2007 · The Road to Wellness
Many people have an interest in holistic healing and spiritual growth but are uncertain how to proceed. Their problems seem overwhelming, or they're simply too bogged down with responsibilities to take action. Sometimes it's easier to stay in the comfort zone of stagnant negativity rather than explore the unknown possibilities of a positive, balanced, happy life.

Circumstances change and people come and go from our lives, but the soul remains the same. These changes are opportunities and not threats or failures.

Our life experiences are there as lessons. If you keep having the same problem occur repeatedly you haven't learned the lesson. The idea is that you'll eventually understand the teachings you need in order to open your heart and grow spiritually.

No one can learn for you.

Are you ready to make a positive change? It's not enough to say you're ready or think you're ready. You must be ready. Your mind, body and soul have to be in agreement. When that happens, you'll be able to take the steps toward a new knowing of your true self.

You must set goals. You must redirect your thoughts toward your goals. What is it you want? Maybe a better job, a healthier body or better communication with others. You decide. You become what you think about the most.

There are many methods to help you on your spiritual journey. Reading books, daily meditations and yoga are common ways to begin to focus your awareness within.

For some, meditation is too difficult because it's not easy to quiet the mind. Massage, reiki, aromatherapy and crystal healing can be great starts, as they allow you to take time for yourself and not much effort is required from the receiver. All of these methods will aid in balancing your energy, releasing blocked energy and helping you become aware of your true self.
