How to Heal Yourself (Part-1)

Need of Natural Healing Therapy

Although the term ‘healing touch’ is quite commonly used by everyone, not many people know that it is within the power of any individual to become a ‘healer’. It doesn’t require any supernatural power or divine intervention to be able to exercise the power of that ‘healing touch’ which all of us are born with. All it needs is to have fully activated and balanced Chakras and a heart filled with love and compassion as a healthy heart Chakra helps us to connect with people with greater ease. As I have mentioned in my earlier series on Chakras that there are seven major Chakras in the body and two minor Chakras (in hands and feet) which regulate the flow of energy in and out of the body. Every organ in the body is associated with a Chakra which means that if any Chakra is blocked or releases inadequate energy, the organ associated with it gets affected adversely. We see so many people suffering from depression, heart aches, hurt, sleeplessness, amnesia, lack of concentration, chronic physical ailments like arthritis etc in our daily lives; the worst part is that even medical science does not seem to have a complete cure for such diseases. At best the doctors can prescribe medication for temporary relief or for preventing further deterioration which, in no way, heals a patient from the ailment; it just minimizes the intensity of the discomfort to a certain extent. This is perhaps why Alternate or Natural Therapy has been preferred over the conventional mode of treatment. The Alternate Therapy not only brings comfort to the patient but, in most cases, has proven to eradicate the symptoms of ‘dis-ease’ completely.

Some astonishing results of ‘Natural Healing’

Let me start by sharing some case studies with you in order to show how inner suffering manifests in the form of physical ailments. All these patients were cured of their physical discomfort not with the help of any medication but with the help of a ‘Healing Touch’.

1. A 45 year old woman had been suffering from arthritic pain in hands, knees and elbows for more than a year. Her medical history revealed that her son had passed away about two years ago which made her quit the job for not being able to cope with her loss. With the death of her son, she had lost all her hopes with nothing to look forward to. She developed suicidal tendencies as she felt that there was no reason for her to live. She constantly sensed a vacuum in and around her; the feeling of emptiness engulfed her and devoured her vitals. The result was that her body responded to her mental agony in the form of arthritis.

2. A 25 year old woman complained of chronic headaches accompanied with heaviness and partial blackouts. Some digging into her past revealed that she had consented to marry a boy against her wishes as she had got tired of constant nagging by her overbearing mother. The marriage turned out a nightmare for her and after six months of her marriage, she left her husband and came back to her parents' house. Even after coming back she could not get rid of her traumatic memories; headaches continued and she suffered from loss of interest, depression and total disorientation.

3. A 30 year old woman was compelled by her circumstances to quit her high profile job in one of the top notch companies. She had a tough choice to make when her sister died in a car crash and was left with no option but to take care of her two nephews (2 year and 4 year old). Even though she loved attending to her household chores, yet she felt suppressed, suffocated and drained out of energy all the time. The fact that she was not able to use her creative skills in the way she wanted to, depleted her energy levels and gradually resulted in the blockage of her heart chakra. A direct consequence of this energy imbalance was depression and constant upper backaches.

How Body Mechanism gets disrupted

Our physical body is the outer manifestation of our inner feelings. It’s a strange phenomenon to see our body reacting to the external stimulus which might exist in the form of our situations, daily stresses or the people we interact and live with. Needless to say, the positive experiences do not disrupt the chemical balance in the body whereas the negative ones lay an adverse impact on our body system, pushing it to the verge of organic malfunction. Some common instances of the adverse effects of our negative thoughts / uncompromising attitude / taxing situations on our body are as follows:

1. When we worry a lot about our future and the responsibilities which we have to ‘shoulder’, our shoulders (literally) get affected.

2. When we are obsessed to do things ‘our own way’ without paying heed to the advice of our near and dear ones, the back of neck gets affected. The rigidity in our thoughts and attitude manifests itself in the stiffness of the neck. Isn’t that strange?

3. It is said that our ears tend to get affected when we have a bad habit of ‘not listening’.

4. Our arms and hands get affected when we don’t like to indulge in much of physical work. They can also get affected if we constantly harbor a feeling that we are not given the freedom to decide for ourselves and that someone else is in control of our life.

Lower backache
Lower backache

5. Legs help to walk and move forward in life and if they get affected, it means that somewhere deep down we have lost trust in our potential or abilities to make things happen for us. Metaphorically we are ‘not able to move on’. Our knees connect with our ability to cope with our changing situations; they also connect with our deep seated fears. The ankles are directly connected with our ability to be flexible and balanced. Similarly thighs relate to trust in one’s own potential and calves associate with the ability to keep oneself focused and not getting distracted. People, who have imbalance in the above stated areas of life, develop problems in the related body parts as explained.

6. Pent up grievances and hurt feelings can cause energy slither down in the lower back which causes unexplained backaches.

7. Left part of the body, in general, relates to the past and the right part relates to the future. This means that if left knee or left shoulder gets affected, it means the person has not been able to alienate himself from his past memories. Likewise a problem in right knee or right shoulder would indicate worrying too much about future and being scared of shouldering responsibilities.

Hi Anj,

Incredible! I heard of people having a healing touch but I didn't know that everyone is born with with this power. It is truly amazing how "Our physical body is the outer manifestation of our inner feelings" and how people, who have imbalance in the above stated areas of life, develop problems in the related body parts as explained. Thank you for making more people aware of this God given gift that can save lives! I am going to try this!

Anjali: I know I say "wow", a lot, LOL! but that was exactly my reaction after I finished reading this article. I am eagerly waiting for part two!

I have developed an issue with my left ankle and I realize now that I am holding on to past energy, feel the sadness on an energetic level about my childhood, choices, events and such, but I should know better as I am spiritually aware, but the human part of me needs to totally release this, and I am close.  I don't conciously dwell on memories, hardly ever,

but the energy of regrets instead of understanding is there. When I had issues about my future and felt trapped when I was involved with the emotionally abusive ex, I broke my right elbow. I am surprised I didn't connect my body's reactions to these events. Best to work on releasing instead of waiting for something to show up!

Thank you so much for writing this, and for this reminder. It has helped to pay attention and to listen. 

BTW, do you teach spiritual truths in your offline life?  I think you would be a gifted teacher.

Interesting hub. I love reading and learning more about things that can improve our lives through self-healing. Very good stuff to know and practice. Thanks for writing this and will also look forward to part 2.

my-success-guru: Yes that's right. Even you are born with this healing touch. It is just about energy and channelizing it for yours and someone else's benefit. Try doing it. That's called 'pay it forward' or 'one act of random kindness' (ARK). Only quoting Morgan Freeman in 'Evan Almighty'. Lol. Thx for liking this hub.

Violet Sun: I'm glad that you found this informative. I had the same kind of issue with my left knee but since I knew about this science (connection between state of mind and physical body), I forced myself (literally) to let go of my past. It definitely took lot of time and effort but (trust me) the weakness / pain in my knee disappeared completely. I usually choose topics (to write about) which I firmly believe in. The earlier Chakra series was also conceived only after I went through those mystical experiences. Speaking of 'being a spiritual teacher'....I don't consider myself an expert but I do try, whenever someone needs, to give best possible advice on related issues. Thx very much for being so generous all the time. 

Dottie1: I've always  believed in 'healing powers' of a human being. If we are children of God, we are bound to inherit some of his powers; the only thing is that these powers remain unused / untapped until we realize how potent we are. Thx a lot for your kind comments.

Anji: The information you shared was literally healing to me early this a.m. Awareness/understanding as you know can be very healing. I really got it! It was like an "aha! moment. I took a look at myself, and said, its "okaaay, to have been wherever I was, to have made the so called silly choices and such", (I can be very hard on myself), and my ankle feels so much better today. Its amazing stuff and a blessing to be able to learn how to listen to the connection between body and emotions.

I printed your hub on chakra clearing last night and will be doing the exercises.

Once again, thank you for sharing of your self.

Hi Marie: You have a beautiful name...as beautiful as you are. You, perhaps unknowingly, hit the bulls eye. 'Awareness / understanding can be healing.' It is said that the first step towards eternal happiness is... 'knowing yourself', 'accepting yourself and your surounding situations'. If you accept, you tend to surrender (to the Unseen Forces) and from there the doors to happiness open up for you. Just like the treatment of any disease starts from 'diagnosis', we need to understand the root cause of our suffering and take action to mitigate the pain. Once we are able to do this for ourselves, we should go a step forward and heal others. Healing others heals the healer too. (Hugs & Kisses). Thx for coming back.

'"knowing yourself', 'accepting yourself and your surounding situations'. If you accept, you tend to surrender (to the Unseen Forces) and from there the doors to happiness open up for you"

I totally resonate with the above, and the rest of your comments; the knowing, acceptance and surrendering is where I am getting closer to at this point in my journey. Its humbling.

Thank you for your kind words. :)

Love and hugs,

You take energy healing in a different direction than I take it. I treat it as a matter of fact form of healing without a lot of emotion.

I recently posted on an energy healing forum to see if anyone had any opinions on how effective the top energy healing methods are and I didn't get any responses just a bunch of questions about what I do.

I'm still curious; I developed True Cures before I knew it was energy healing. I am curious to know who is most effective in the world of energy healing. Is there one method known to be more effective than others or is there an unwritten understanding that one energy healer does not discuss shortcomings of another?

Anjali, it is very true, I use Mudras and I find incredible how it helps to alleviate and cure problems with just a touch a fingers. I would love to read more about Chakras when I have time. I believe in a medical system which employs the best of all treatments, more research should be done to find the ideal mix instead of ignoring other medical systems.


anjalichugh profile image

anjalichugh 7 years ago from New York Author

True Cure: First of all there is nothing like a good or bad healer. I will be discussing in my next hub certain misconceptions about healing and to avoid repetition I prefer not to reveal those facts here, so kindly bear with me for another day or two. :)) Thx for visiting and showing interest in this hub.

Cgull8m: In some cases, the doctors do recommend a blend of  conventional and healing techniques for treatment. That is definitely the ideal combo. Chakras is an amazing subject. It really intriguing sometimes; the fact that the energy centers are capable of making or breaking the body is mind boggling. Thx for your kind comments.

I have experienced energy healing from a healer here locally--

Sharon Seitz and have always thought, as you say, that each of has that capacity to heal. Your hub was helpful to me in understanding more something I "know" but have a hard time talking about to another person. I am going to enjoy rereading your hub and the follow up ones and becoming clearer about my energy and where it is out of whack, so to speak. My son, David Bradley, just posted a series of hubs on Intention. Reading his first hub last night on Intention and then your hub this morning on energy healing has nudged me back into alignment, so to speak. Thanks

anjalichugh 7 years ago from New York Author

vrbmft: Now you're being generous. All of us need such kind of reminders on and off. I'm glad this hub helped you connect with your inner reservoir of untapped energy. I would want to read David's hub on 'intention'. Would you please care to post a link here. Thx very much for your kind comments.

serialkisser: I wonder why you chose that handle.

Speaking of guidance, you've to let me know what exactly you want to know from me. I guess all the information about Chakras is already in my hubs. If you go to my profile page, you'll find quick links to 'Hubs on Chakras' (part-wise). Please go through it first and if you still have questions, feel free to come back. Thx for your kind comments.

Great hub, and thank you for sharing. I wonder if you've ever heard of Dr. Mitchell E. Gibson; a well known and highly respected 'spiritual healing' practitioner from Phoenix, Arizona. If not, I have a few of his seminar video clips on my site @ http://fromwithinirise.com/knowthyself.htm

This is correct that many medical treatments will only give relief temporarily, where I see what you are saying in regard to eradicating the symptom completely.

I will certainly be looking into natural healing therapy with more interest.

Jules: I wish you good luck with your pursuit. Hope you're able to keep your interest alive (for natural therapy) for a very long time. :)

I have seen many people around me who got more sick after changing to a more stressful job. "Phenomenon to see our body reacting to the external stimulus which might exist in the form of our situations, daily stresses or the people we interact and live with" has become a common situation around me.

I am glad that you put them into words. I will share this article with my friends. Thanks a million !

anjalichugh 6 years ago from New York Author

Ingenira: I feel sad to see how we almost ignore our most valuable asset, our body, in the process of fighting our day to day battles. Energy healing is the only way to harmonize our body functions with Nature. Thx so much for your wise words. Keep coming back.

neeleshkulkarni 5 years ago from new delhi

wow!!!! resonates exactly with what i beleive. despite not beiong a trained healer i have been able on a few rare occasions to chanelise the vast energies that are there around us into healing.those energies are out there and just raring to take a go at helping us, we just got to believe in them and have pure intent.

i am going to find it difficult to post new and novel comments on everything you have written since i am going to read every word of it. i guess will just say "was here" which translated into english will mean, wowow, superb ,fabulous, deeply impressed, what great stuff and most other such things that were ever invented.
