“When nobody listens, how can healing occur?
How many people go through life truly understood, truly heard? How many people go through life instead striving to prove to their friends, family, and colleagues that they can care for themselves in this demanding world?
Deep, authentic understanding grants a person more than just a freeing sensation—it helps one to heal, removes blocks from one’s consciousness, and changes a person’s energies. Think of the first time you found a true friend and how fulfilling it was that they understood you. Consider how this built up your confidence and self-worth. Those who validate your positive attributes are, in a way, healers.
Self-worth is one of the first things to go when a person becomes sick. Depending on the length and intensity of the health disorder, this waning confidence in one’s own ability to be well can lead to intense insecurity and despair. This is because one vital component of self-worth is understanding–feeling that practitioners, doctors, and healers fully comprehend your symptoms and what it is like to live with them. Feeling that family and other loved ones recognize your illness, emotional state, and chosen path of treatment is highly beneficial.
Unfortunately, it’s quite common to become isolated in this time of struggle with your health, as those around you may listen yet they never truly hear.
