Hubpages Review: How Hubpages Becomes a Healing Ground

I bet you know this to be true in your hearts but have never really focused on the matter. Or maybe you started out using hubpages as a means of income and later on discovered its ability to become a venue of expression for pent up feelings or unresolved issues in your life. And maybe for most of us it has become a place to find answers to our current situation not just through the articles and forums but through comments left by people as well. What I like most is the fact that the people around here seem to be the no-non-sense beings. One, therefore, feels secure enough to be truthful. This atmosphere provides good ground for allowing oneself to experience the joy of finding friends from across the universe.

This may seem mushy and all, but I have been a witness to how this network has effectively become a healing ground, courtesy of some of my personal friends who are members. Hubpages does wonders in nourishing the mind, body, heart and spirit where healing takes place. And no, I am not getting a special commission from the staff for making this hub.

1. HUBBING IN MIND. Most people join network communities to help augment whatever online business they have. This alone helps the members with their financial concerns. Getting new concepts, ideas, philosophies, tips and guides from other members feed creative thinking allowing them to get out of the box. The constant flow of new information paves the way to discovering paths to living a more successful and happy life. Healing, after all, has much to do with the mind - it all starts with a thought.

2. HUBBING IN BODY. When thoughts of good health pervade the mind then you can be sure the body follows suit. You will be drawn to open hubs that deal with health matters, food recipes, tips on workout and the like.

You may just find the right regimen for your particular need. The healing process moves on to feeling better about yourself, as you achieve success in whatever health and fitness program you choose to do.

3.HUBBING IN THE HEART. The body is our very own personal pharmacy (producing chemicals needed in response to bodily functions) and would be able to supply us with every need if our emotions are just in the right place. Reading hubs, creating one, commenting on some and participating in the right forums can get us to the feeling place of love, joy, peace, gratitude, hope, trust, faith, triumph, encouragement and the like where healthy happy cells are bound to be produced or renewed. Read the hubs of ripplemaker and you'd be in the right feeling place which will lead you to get in touch with your true spirit.

4. HUBBING SPIRIT. Believe me, the spirit in which you write transcends time and space and reveals much of where you are at this point in your life. Your personal truth is that which emanates in your words. Hubpages is the sacred ground for which you may reach a level of awareness of who you truly are, devoid of all pretenses and masks then learn to love this spiritual being that forms your very essence. Healing continues in Hubpages. Enjoy the adventure of healing!

I agree that we all start out at Hubpages for a particular reason, and discover way more than expected. I love this hub. It is lovely to see "ripplemaker" at work. :) You are both gifts to this community. Many thanks Dayzeebee.

Thank you for bringing into the light this beautiful perspective about this great community of hubbers. I am happy to be a hubber myself! LOL I love the way you are able to incorporate hubbing and healing matters too. If you do think about it, it is indeed a healing ground when we are able to learn and grow in different areas of our lives and be able to reach out to others as well. :)

I never thought of it as a healing ground but come to think of it, we are drawn to hubs which interests us which in turn nourishes not just our minds but our spirit as well. Great hub!

You are very right about your analysis of the affect Hubpages has had on many of the Hubbers here. I love the people and the environment here on Hubpages. Mingling with everyone here and learning about them and myself through their writing, has truly been a rich experience in my own life.

Beautiful.

Dayzee, another beautiful hub. Not bragging, honest, but I recognized, almost instantly, the international bridge-building potential of HubPages. I made a request (and wrote one myself) asking hubbers -particularly those in other countries- to write a "Day In The Life" hub so that we could recognize each others' similarities, and better understand each others' differences. There were some very nice hubs that followed in response, but not as many as I'd hoped for.


dayzeebee profile image

dayzeebee 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

hello constant walker, you are indeed a traveler. i see your point and will work on a hub capturing that which makes us unique as a people. maybe you can point me to the hubs that answered your request. thanks

Happening upon your hub at this time brings special meaning to me. 

There's been enough said, argued, disputed, and ranted about regarding what HubPages is, is not, should be, can't be, won't be, will be...

Thank you for a breath of fresh air. 

HubPages is a place where minds meet.  Where there is meeting, there is healing.

I started Hubbing as a way to gain control of my situation. I was feeling pretty helpless acutally. Hubpages was the one place i was able to express some things without the fear of being harrassed. maybe hubpages isn't the forum for what I had to say but I was glad for the opportunity. It did help me feel better!

That would be great, Compu, and there's certainly no rush, ay?

marisuewrites profile image

marisuewrites 8 years ago from USA

Hey, you are so right, I have found it to be more than an audience but a freindly warm reception to thoughts and heartfelt comments; as well as some pretty dern good information regarding just about EVERYTHING. I, for one, think most writer's here are doing things just right. no pun intended.

Writing is healing...and I like that we are free here to express ourselves, and not always in the forums. Most of our writings abot daily life are the ones most read. Keep going writers....its a great experience.

another thought...there is something for everyone here....and that's ok. the writers world is one of respect for the pen...yes?? food for thought....

constant walker thank you for all the links you posted. it certainly adds to the enthusiasm finishing the hub. will keep updated.

thanks compu-smart. i know your hubs are of great help to many around here. i will be using some of your tips soon..

ms chievous i'm glad to hear that. i believe the act of expressing your present truth through hubpages is already part of the healing process. raw emotions displayed in words help release tension allowing more room for positive energy to flow. do allow yourself to feel. all is well

I completely agree with your sentiments... HubPages is helpful in many ways, and you have touched upon them well!


cvaughn570 8 years ago

You completely put together what I feel HP is about. I have found a great many friends and lessons here.

As I said in a comment on one of my more personal hubs, "This hub was my way of letting it go. Writing is good for the soul."

I think that you have conveyed that message here.

Thanks,

Carol

dayzeebee 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

thanks glassvisage, it's good to hear comments of that nature especially from those who have been in this community for years.

carol, i appreciate your spontaneity..yes..writing is very good for the soul indeed. this i believe is what draws people into hubbing.

I can attest to hubpages as a healing ground. A very close friend of mine, whom I spent much time with, died last year. Hubbing and the hubpage community was, and still is a source of great comfort. Wonderful hub. Thank you Dayzeebee.

Oh that's touching Dottie1. I'm glad there are many of us here finding comfort and healing as we share our knowledge, wisdom and expertise on various subject areas. do take care.

Madison Parker 8 years ago from California

I am so glad you wrote this. I don't want to dwell on my personal tragedy here but I have to mention that after the death of my only daughter in 2007, I found solice in writing. At that time, I didn't know HubPages existed. An old, dear friend of mine recommended Helium.com where I started to write voraciously. I wrote about my daughter, my life, my family and about everything else that crossed my path.

I like the caliber of writers on Helium but have found it a cold site and not warm and fuzzy like Hub! When I discovered HubPages, a few really nice people began to communicate with me, and in turn I met them and others through them. I love the personal feedback on my work and I love to read the work of people I know and the work of people I may get to know.

There are many good people here; people who genuinely care about their world. Even if I don't always agree on everything, I have so much respect for the messages that these fine writers (and people) are getting out to others.

In a very real way, I credit writing (and my beautiful family) with saving my life and my sanity at a time when I wasn't so sure I would ever survive my loss.

Thanks for a great hub

dayzeebee 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Daisy. This is such a terrific community, both for the freedom of expression and the meeting of wonderful people who become good friends.

I believe that people are brought together to help each other, and I think that has happened here. I know I have benefitted from my HP friendships on a healing level, sometimes without the other person even knowing that they've helped me.

This is a another terrific hub, Daisy.

dayzeebee 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

very well said shirley. the experience i've had in this community has gone far beyond my expectations and i continue to be grateful. the "connections" established with people all over the world is simply amazing. love is indeed boundless and such a powerful source of healing. thank you for the friendship. have a great day:)

G'day dayzeebee, like you I am so pleased that I was introduced to Hubpages and able to reach across the world and meet people like yourself who instill happiness into ones being. I cannot stay down when I read one of your Hubs.

On a sadder note I called heavily on the writings of Deepak Chopra when my sister passed away some 6 years ago. I found him to be very helpful!

Hi Agvulpes, thank you for beautiful sharing and your compliment. Meeting people like you allow more healing to take place as we share a common bond of expressing our deepest thoughts through hubbing. I am sorry for you loss and pray you are handling things better now. I look forward to knowing you better:) Be blessed:)

Hello Jerilee Wei, Nothing is ever too late her in hubpages. I guess that's the beauty of having our work published online -- it stays there waiting to touch another life at any given time. Thank you for your valuable sharing. It lends strength to this hub. May we continue to journey on and heal together with love. God be with you always:)
