Healing is a Journey Not a Destination!

by Neseret on March 31, 2012

PurpleEvery vision has its own timing. Some manifest almost immediately, others take years.

You did not rush when you were learning to walk, nor did you decide after falling the first several times, that walking was not your destiny. You kept at it with curiosity, determination, and joy!

When you are enraptured by a vision, setbacks are seen as delays not denials; use the lessons of a delay to move forward rather than as a reason to give up. Stay with your vision until the vision fulfils itself. Allow the vision to grow your spiritual muscles – and then WINGS! ~ Rai Jordan, from Higher Vision Network ~

Have you ever felt like you wanted something so bad and you wanted it NOW! Even better you wanted it YESTERDAY or last year or even 10 years ago?

When you have an important big vision, dream, or even a simple goal and you’re not progressing towards that vision, dream or goal as fast as you want, it can be frustrating and discouraging. However understand every great and worthwhile endeavour takes time and patience.

The journey of healing is one of the most AWESOME and monumental endevours anyone can embark on.

It take a lot of courage to embark on the journey of healing and to do the work of healing. Healing takes time. I also believe healing is an ongoing journey and not a destination.

There will be setbacks, obstacles and challenges to overcome along the way, especially in the beginning stages of your journey. These setback and challenges are designed to help you grow and step in to the person you’re meant to be.

Often I see people start their journey excited and full of HOPE but when they encounter setbacks along the way they get discouraged and give up. We live in an age of instant gratification. “These are times of fast foods, and slow digestion; tall man and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships. It is time when there is much in the window, and nothing in the room.” ~ His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama ~

So how do you use setbacks and delays to move forward instead of giving up?

PATIENCE: As a master I understand that everything has to happen in its own good time. I am not rushed or anxious waiting for people to change. ~ Brahma Kumaris, Self Mastery ~

The biggest shift any of us can make in the process of persuing any worthwhile goal is a mindset shift/right perspective. A mindset shift/right perspective is an essential and critical step not only in the journey of healing but of self development, business development and any other important endeavour.

When we approach anything with the right mindset we will move forward, progress and succeed. When we approach our journey of healing, self development and ultimately life itself with the right mindset we will be happier, achieve our goals faster and with more ease. So what exactly is the right mindset?

The right mindset is “curiosity, determination, and joy”!

The right mindset is patience. Patience with yourself and with others. It is a willingness to keep going despite setbacks! It is a willingness to pick yourself up when you have fallen and dust yourself off and get right back on track. It is a willingness to be gentle with yourself and with others!

The right mindset is to be open to looking at your vision, dreams, and goals from a higher perspective. It is asking the tough questions such as….How can I best serve the highest good for myself and others in this situation? Is this vision, dream and goal in the best interest of me and those I care about?

What is the next right step and action I can take to help me progress in my path?

Ultimately the right mindset is to be willing to do WHATEVER it takes to achieve your vision, dreams and goals. It is also making up your mind that you are going to ENJOY the journey regardless of the outcome! Isn’t that what life is all about? Enjoying the ride!

I haven’t always thought or felt this way but these days I am finding myself delightfully waking up to each day so incredibly GRATEFUL to have another day to love, learn and grow. I’ve encountered my share of setbacks, obstacles and failure along the journey of my healing and life but I feel it was all worth it!

Today I cherish every single moment I have on planet earth!

I am so thankful for the gift of life itself. I am totally “enraptured by a vision” that has set me on fire! My vision is to be an active participant of the great global shift/movement towards a sustainable, just, and peaceful world. I am so grateful to be living my dream as a writer, nurse, healer and coach supporting people in their journey of healing and returning to wholeness!

It is my prayer that you will embrace your own unique purpose in life, vision, dreams and goals with fearless abandon! I wish you joy, happiness and success along your journey. I am here to support you in anyway I can. I am your biggest fan!

Peace, Love & Gratitude,
