Bridget and I connected, two kindred spirits who both knew the secret - you can heal yourself.
While at the store I noticed a handout entitled "Ten Steps To Help A Friend On A Healing Journey" written by Bridget Shaw accompanied by a DVD entitled "The Healing of Heather Garden". I was aware of Heather's story, for Bridget had shared it with me when we'd met. I picked up the handout and placed it with my purchases.
The handout explains how you can help a friend on a healing journey. Bridget simplifies it in 10 steps and she nailed them all. Great job Bridget!
Holistic healing practitioners BELIEVE you can heal yourself. But when you are the spouse, relative, sibling, or friend of the person with the "dis-ease", you don't know where to begin to help them.
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing Shaw's beautiful words of wisdom and her simple 10 Steps.
Don't miss out and be inspired to help your friend or yourself. You Can Heal Yourself!
I helped a friend on her healing journey from a wheelchair to a vibrant life. I believe that if you want something badly enough you can work towards it little by little and it will happen. The doctors told her that her disease was incurable and she would be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. She wanted to be able to run with her son.
Deep down I felt if I encourage her to follow her dream, she could recover from Multiple Sclerosis and be exactly who she wanted to be.
I have reflected on her journey and my role in it and have written this article for others that want to help a friend accomplish their goal of being well.
The hardest part of the journey is the amount of time and energy that will be required of you, in the end though it will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Be sure to practice self-care for yourself along the way.
First and foremost you have to believe, believe that they can be well and never ever doubt it. For me I set my mind on the idea that she was a well person and I never looked back.
Here are my ten steps that I think are beneficial to helping a friend accomplish their healing goals.
STEP ONE: Be with them, Listening and Watching
One of the keys to being a great helper is spending time with the person. I mean not just checking in once in awhile, but really being there.
I was with her almost every day and not just in familiar surroundings. I found it was extremely beneficial to leave the routine and familiar surroundings to focus on her health and wellness. Something in her life and in her environment had made her sick, so taking her away from that was beneficial.
In order to help someone change their patterns and create new daily rituals they have to refocus and start thinking about the life they want....every moment of every day and you there to make sure they are doing what they set out to do.
