Illness and healing as a right of passage

Healing and illness are a right of passage

Definition of rite of passage

a ritual, event, or experience that marks or constitutes a major milestone or change in a person’s life (Merriam Webster dictionary)

Time to see Illness in a new way

Isn’t it time we start to look at illness in a completely different way?

What if we choose to see illness, rather than as an affliction, as a right of passage? This is even more true when illness crops up at major life transitions like puberty and menopause.

What if we choose to see that illness is just a way of being brought back to our healthiest state?

The right time

I know it might seem like there is never a convenient time to get ill.

It often comes when least expected, and means we have to stop whatever we were doing before.

But what if that’s exactly what needs to happen at exactly the right time?

Perhaps we need to change tack, and move onto a different course.

Of course sometimes illness can bring death, but I guess that is the nature of being human.

Everything in life has meaning

And in the meantime we can choose to see that everything in our lives has meaning.

Our own innate wellness and body wisdom are always guiding us back to health.

I have noticed time and time again when I work with my clients that there is always a deeper reason for coming for treatment.

Yes, there is discomfort, yes there is pain.

But what is at the root of it?

Some change is being asked of us.

Some sense of being out of alignment in some way- mental, emotional, physical or spiritual?

What is being ignored?

My passion is to listen to your symptoms and to respect them.  What is the message? What are the changes that need to be made?

We will choose the most supportive tools in my toolbox to navigate through this together.

It might be bodywork, homeopathy, homeo-botanical herbs, functional nutrition, or a combination of all of them.
