We are all self-healing. Self-healing refers to the process of recovering from either psychological or physical trauma that is directed by the patient.

Self-healing is not a new concept. Eastern and ancient medical models have been based on self-healing for thousands of years.

Self-healing is simple and easy to practice. You just  tune into your body and direct your thoughts and emotions into making changes. You can choose to change and move in a new direction; and you do this by inviting ease and flow into your life.


1. Grounding Meditation. One way to self-heal is to do a grounding meditation. Here are the steps:

        • Begin by placing your feet comfortably on the ground or the floor.
        • Take three deep breaths, and with each breath, release any negative energy.
        • Direct your attention to the soles of your feet.
        • Imagine large roots extending down from your feet and into the Earth about six or eight feet.
        • Move your awareness to the base of your spine. Imagine your spine going deep into the earth. Feel the magnetic pull of gravity coming from the earth’s core.
        • Breathe in for three counts. Hold your breath and exhale for four counts.
        • Repeat this pattern three times.
        • When you’re ready, open your eyes.

2. Resonant breathing. Resonant breathing helps you self heal. Follow these steps:

        • Lie on your back.
        • Breathe in for six counts and breathe out for six counts.
        • When you feel calm, change your breathing pattern by breathing in through your nose, filling your diaphragm and chest full of air. Then exhale through your mouth.
        • If you can, repeat this for about five to ten minutes. You might feel your consciousness shift.
        • Write down your thoughts in your journal.

3. Journaling. Practice regular journaling. It can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health. With journaling, your self-awareness increases, which allows you to enter your subconscious


4. Inner visualization. Practicing inner visualization can take you deeper within yourself, connecting you to your higher power or higher self. Follow these steps:

        • Focus on a troubled area.
        • Imagine radiating energy outward from that place and then pulling in the universe’s energy to that area.
        • Imagine the troubled part feeling better and healed.
        • Bathe in that sensation.

Our real power emerges when we practice self-healing techniques regularly. Although self- healing can take time and effort, its long-term benefits—happiness, resilience, and well-being—are worth it.
