For me, healing in various forms have been essential for my wellbeing. It has helped me in and through the darkest and happiest moments of my life. When I first discovered it as a 14-year old I was not a fan. I still remember how I rushed out of the room at the end of the session, saying “I will never do this again”. I was angry. Because I couldn’t lie. I couldn’t lie anymore to myself, what I was feeling and how I was doing. My reactions to my actions. During the session I had to face it all. And I hated it.
Still. It was the most magical and calmest experience. And I felt good afterwards… Like ten pounds lighter and five miles taller. I believed in myself. I found back. At that time it was a huge secret. Taboo really.
During the years it was my rescue. From traumatizing events and immense sorrow. But mostly it was my time for myself.. for hearing that little voice within me. Only my closest friends knew that I practiced healing, the taboo was still there, but not in the way that you’d be put on the psyche if you spoke about it. Nah, just kidding.
As a 20-something year old I educated myself to become a reiki master, and a couple years later I finished. I started a company (heartovermind, after the life philosophy I’m pursuing), and I began practice healing in various ways. I broke the taboo and went against the norms. An academic, career-woman who is (openly) spiritual? How is that possible? But it was in a time when people were starting to wake up and the subject was not that awkward anymore. I was proud (still am). It is such a huge part of me and it permeates everything I do. I mean, everything I do. It’s just there. In my way of thinking and acting and believing and seeing. In my work, in my lessons and my daily life.
Today I’ve come to the point where I no longer actively think about it. It’s just a part of me. If I am feeling down, stressed, ill or whatever – if I just feel the need to balance my chakras, to refill my energies and center myself, I do. Since a couple of years I started to not lable the healing I channel, it’s just me. Me and my own healing from my higher self. Nothing else. One does not have to lable everything. I just trust my intuition and follow the guidance that comes. We are all beings in the state of evolving, and we are all walking our own paths. What’s right for me might not be right for you, but dare to follow that inner voice and guidance of yours – whether it is going vegan, to a concert, follow a religion, becoming a doctor, eating chocolate or whatever! Just listen. And trust. It truly has helped my in ways I cannot express (at least not here, in what’s suppose to be a short post). I guess I just wanted to share. And simply say: be who you are.
Just go for it.
Longing back to Thailand where I joined Ida Warg, Anna Nyström & Josefine Bengtsson on the most wonderful and magical yoga / work out-trip ever and launched my business. That view!
