Healing Feelings 

Some heal with talking about feelings.
Some heal with prayer.
Some heal with doing something constructive.
Some heal with forgiveness.
Some choose to stay unhealed as protection.
Some heal by opening to gratitude.
Some heal by simply letting go.
Some heal with ritual.
Some heal with emotional catharsis.
Some heal with bodywork.
Some heal with time.
Some choose to live with a reservoir of unexpressed pain.
Some heal by being creative.
Some heal by doing good.
Some heal by listening to the other.
Some heal by requesting help from God.
Some choose to stay stuck with the toxins.

We cannot heal another.
We can choose to heal ourselves.
We cannot prevent others from negativity.
We can choose to dis-empower its impact on us.
We cannot make another better or fix the past.
We can choose to love others and to forgive the past.
We cannot help those who seek no help.
We can choose to help those who ask.

Let us all do what we can to heal ourselves.
To heal is to make whole.
To heal is to make happy.
To heal is to let go of the regrets and resentments of the past.
To heal is to feel the good that is here now.
To heal is to create beauty and goodness with our lives.
To heal is to be truly helpful with respect and gratitude.
To heal is to be whole.

Loving us all in our self-healing,
Betty Lue
