17 mins What is the healing journey? How intimacy helps with healing. How can we start?
19 mins. When an organism wants to heal the organism will go into self healing by putting itself in situations that will allow that reflection. There are many different ways to heal but the person must take a journey to their own full healing – the biggest factor in this is that the person is willing.
50% of the healing is the person taking responsiblity, 20/30% is the medicine. The rest is the practitioner guiding them.
The other key is also self awareness, but most people want to stay comfortable, to stay as they are… anything to stop us having to take the journey.
