The Healing Powers of Forgiveness, Listening & Touch

It’s so routine to run to the doctor for a prescription or pop a pill for a headache. It’s much harder to listen to what our bodies are trying to tell us, just like it’s often difficult to listen to what other people are saying.

We get so caught up or distracted by what we have to say or what needs to get done that we may be tempted to hit the “easy” button and sweep grudges, emotions, or fears under the rug.

These buried feelings often find a way to surface at some point through physical symptoms. Breaking this cycle and inviting in true healing to our lives and bodies is completely possible, but requires us to first stop and take a closer look at our lives and bodies.
