Desire-Led Healing

The road less travelled.

When you focus on your pain, you get more pain.

Think about it for a second, let’s say you stub your toe getting out of bed. Next, you go into the bathroom and your toothpaste has run out, you’re running late….what do you start saying to yourself? This is going to be one of those days where everything goes wrong. What happens then? Everything goes wrong and your toe throbs again.

Imagine stubbing your toe getting out of bed and then getting a phone call to say that you’ve run the lottery. Suddenly, the toe pain goes away.

I see this often in my practice where people are focused on why they are not healing. They don’t stop to think about the areas in which they are healing. What you focus on, expands. Focus on pain to expand the pain, focus on what you desire i.e. well-being and that expands.

Desire-led healing is a term that I coined to represent healing from a place of desire. When you’re following the path of desire, you’re being led and guided. Healing is done through changing the way you’ve seen your past, accepting what can’t be changed and tapping into a future version of yourself that has what you desire.

Healing is seen as an opportunity to tap into your next level of potential and the next version of yourself.

When we allow our desires to guide us through this process, magic can happen…quicker than you’ve ever imagined. 

What is the other path?

Following the path of fear. The results are not wrong, they are simply, different. The path of fear is actually an easier route. It’s one you’ve probably travelled to before. It’s usually worn out and familiar.

So, here you are, at a fork in the road.

There’s the path paved by fear and more of the same. And another, more uncertain, winding, mysterious and new, unworn, less travelled route.

Which do you take?

Take a deep breath.

Breathe in courage and follow your desire.

I’ll see you there.
