I think most of us suffer from guilt and regret. Some more than others. Sometimes guilt is good. Most times it is not, guilt can make us sick. To learn more and bypass my preamble scroll down the page and click on “How do I Heal from Guilt?” by Reverend Misa Hopkins.
Most of my readers know that I am on a healing journey; physically, emotionally and spiritually. My life-long propensity to discover the meaning of life has propelled an insatiable appetite for seeking answers “out there” in the world.
I’ve researched, studied and filled bookshelves and bankers boxes with information relating to physical and emotional healing, spiritual development and enlightenment. I think I could be a most enlightened and healthy person if those states were found in information. But alas, enlightenment and health are not acquired through information we get “out there”.
However, that is not to say that “out there” is invalid because it is only by seeking outwardly that I’ve been led to where the real learning is; “in here”.
The events of the past six weeks have provided another opportunity for inward (in here) learning. I think that the most impactful learning was to realize that the most important state is to feel loving-kindness toward oneself as well as others. To move toward loving-kindness is the goal, nothing else is really that important.
One of the spiritual teachers and healers whose work led me to look inward is, Reverend Misa Hopkins. Misa personally experienced physical and emotional healing. Her book titled, “The Root of All Healing” tells of her experience as well as offers reasons why some people don’t heal and guides the reader on an inward journey to discover their own potential for health restoration.
I follow Misa’s blog where she writes articles about the healing process. Her article titled, “How Do I Heal From Guilt” is well worth a read and that’s why I share it with you now. From my own personal experience and research, I firmly believe there is an emotional component to illness.
Hope you enjoy Misa’s article, thank you for reading and following my blog while I ramble about my life experiences.
