Healing is our own personal responsibility. What people may fail to realize with this concept is that healing can take place over several lifetimes. There is no timetable for healing.

No one escapes a mortal life without the need for healing on some level. Trauma and abuse happen. We are all free will beings and when we learn to own our ability to heal ourselves of the hurts and wounds, it gives us ownership of our soul. The power is within us, though it may seem bleak or weak at the time. By learning how to heal, we learn how to take our power back from that difficult event or situation. This doesn’t mean we don’t need help. Oftentimes, the ability to seek help, is the first step to healing.

When a difficult situation arises, I always think, “What am I supposed to learn from this? Why do I have to go through this?” (Ok, I need to be honest here. Sometimes my line of thinking starts out something like, “This really sucks. WTF?”)

Finally, when we do come out the other side of healing, we emerge stronger and wiser.

We have changed our soul’s path for the better and when we do this, it will echo out and positively affect those around us. However, it doesn’t mean that we won’t have moments of sadness or grief.

Whether it’s recovering from a loss from suicide, to escaping an abusive relationship, or overcoming learned patterns of abuse from childhood, all healing is intimately personal and unique. Healing has no timetable. What is right for one person, may not be right for another. And that is more than ok, as we are all on our own spiritual paths. But, what is universal is that there is no healing without God (God source, or whatever name you give it).

If your need to heal stems from the loss of a loved one, one of the best and most spiritually powerful things you can do for you and your loved one is to make sure they have crossed over and are not lingering as a ghost. Crossing Over Prayers
