“The wish for healing has always been half of health.” – Seneca
Nowadays the word “healing” has been taking different meanings, it can refer to physical healing, moral, mental or spiritual alleviation.
The pharmaceutical industry has been presenting an image of physical healing as something you will obtain only by the consumption of chemical medicaments. Religions have given us the image that spiritual and moral healing (“salvation”) is obtained by attending to a place to worship divinity and follow certain rules implemented by humans etc.
It seems we all have our own concept of healing, but have you noticed that there are people who apparently are searching for healing but that are avoiding it at the same time?
Our body is a real marvel, it has self-healing qualities and they are working 24/7, we have been giving all we need in nature to heal ourselves, our ancestors had a great notion of nature´s healing power. Probably you even know a few “recipes” from your grandparents that helped you while you were a child and you still use from time to time.
Of course back then there wasn’t many diseases that have been now “created” by our modern way of living and the addition of thousands of chemicals to our food and environment. But that is a different subject.
As I was saying before my ranting, have you noticed that there are people who actually do NOT want to be healed?
In a subconsciously manner they have found their “illness” will bring them some benefits: Attention, compassion, pity, economical help, sympathy and the list goes on and on.
