HeART of Healing – Mind, Body & Soul
Physically, biologically anger and fear create a neurochemical cascade from the brain to the body triggering powerful stress responses. These two emotions interfere with physical healing and are incompatible with spiritual healing.
Healing was the focus at the last HeART of Spirituality workshop. The medium was journaling.
Since you couldn’t attend here’s the materials for you!
My personal experience with fibromyalgia and my Baha’i belief is that ultimately all healing – physical, emotional, situational, is spiritual. Basic to my belief are:
- We learn how to develop God’s virtues through pain and earthly trials & tribulation.
- God does not want us to suffer, He wants us to learn.
- Suffering comes from our distorted perspective of spirituality and our ego needs.
- Praying for “healing” is first and foremost for spiritual growth, not physical remedy.
Our first exercise “Stacked Writing”: focusing on releasing the emotions of anger and fear. Participants wrote, non-stop for 20 minutes, filling the page with sentences, phrases, words on top of each other so that what was written became indecipherable.
Second exercise – “Found Poetry”: Everyone cut out approximately 20 words from newspapers and created a poem from their words. Take a look!
