Navigating Through Your Healing Process (Stage 1)

No one is voided of going through life without getting hurt whether it is physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. Oftentimes these four can be intertwined with each other depending on how deep your wounds go and the situation that causes the hurt. But you can overcome those wounds with time and self-care. I always like to use different analogies or scenarios that will give you a better picture to understand the process of healing.

I am pretty sure most people do not like to experience pain in any shape form or fashion. But unfortunately, we are not voided of being hurt as long as we have breath in our bodies and moving about this earth. But we can learn how to heal those wounds. Whether it is physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual wounds.

Let’s take a physical wound and tie that in with the other forms of pain that I listed above. You have received a deep wound and it hurts like heck! You began to feel the pain shooting throw your body because it is sending signals to your brain (mind) screaming to you that you are hurting.  The next action that comes after that for some people is the emotional part, and that is crying because it hurts so bad. Lastly, the encounter from the wound will sometimes produce a sense of uneasiness within, which may produce fear of not wanting to try certain things again. Now, this is just one example that I am using but there are many other scenarios I could use but that would be too many for this post.  

The body starts to react instantly to stop the flow of blood coming from your wound. Your blood vessels start to narrow to let less of the blood cells through. In minutes, the blood cell platelets rush to the site so they can clump up and stick to the opening of the blood vessel to form a clot to stop the bleeding. This process is a great way to show you how to take action according to the wounds that have affected you. When you are in a place of feeling pain and heartache, start by recognizing what caused the pain and then start assessing the wound.  Examine how deep does your wound(s). Is it superficial? Moderate?  Deep-rooted? Once you recognize and assess the severity of your wound(s). Start by writing down the things that caused you those wounds. Look over what you wrote and began to pray about it if you are a believer. Start your day with positive affirmations. This is the start of your vessels (spiritual vessels) narrowing and pinpointing where the healing needs to focus on so the clotting can begin so you can start to heal from the inside out. 

I pray that this short article helps start you on your pathway of healing. Come along with me every week as we navigate through this journey in the process of healing.
