Self-nurturing through a holistic approach

When first starting off on my healing journey, it took all I had to be able to focus on my mental and emotional wellbeing. I had little time and energy to focus on other areas of my life. Had a great support team in form of therapist and teachers. They encourage a holistic approach to healing. Engaging mind, body and spirit supported me while I worked on building a foundation for my life. I was picking up the pieces of many poor decisions made through substance abuse and untreated mental health issues. I committed to running, therapy and engaging school which had always been a strength of mine. In my schooling, I learned about spiritual principles and techniques that I now share with others. I supported me in learning about intention, affirmations and meditation. These spiritual techniques supported me as I sifted through limiting beliefs about myself, others and the world. The combination of mind, body and spirit strengthened the authentic piece of myself, and I became less identified with the ego. My perspective started to shift from staying connected to the old me and I became dedicated to this new conscious way of being. It all started with the doing of activities that supported my mind, body and spirit. I kept doing the next best choice that supported my wellbeing. A strong self-nurturing practice is essential to the healing process whether you are just beginning or have been on the journey for a long time.

    Thank you for sharing your process. It’s always a huge help to me to learn how others process their journeys. I’m connecting with what you say about making the best next choice to support your well being and am coming to see my process as a series of choices to move forward, always with the understanding a different life is always one choice away. I can be more adventurous in my decision making as I drop attachment to outcomes and come to see how negative results are less a setback and more an opportunity to grow through any adversity. As I learn to connect with and trust my intuition, my willingness to be open to new ways of choosing my own direction is strengthening and moving me away from ego identification with the familiar, habitual choices that would keep me small and stuck. Self nurturing has been a big part of this shift as it brings me deeper into connection with authenticity through commitment to the sense of purpose its provides. Practices such as meditation, journaling, connecting with supportive people and making the next best choice open me to the non resistance of simply being and support my intention to deepen in my process towards my best self
