One of my horoscopes for the year ahead promised healing. My goodness I need that.
The last seven years for me have been of such loss and personal horror, with so much aggression and difficulty at home, that healing would be very welcome.
It almost seems like a negative wish, if you were hoping for massive progress on a project or a huge rise in income, or even a slowdown in outgo. Just healing.
Like some of the best things in life it happens from within. It happens slowly at first without you even recognising that it’s there. The signs are subtle.
If it’s healing from a bereavement the first sign that something is happening might be the day you wake up and don’t have that awful moment when you remember and your heart sinks. It might be as simple as waking, knowing but accepting.
For me it has been freedom from fear. Not examining myself in a panic in case the cancer has started again, somewhere else. Not having to fear the next awful medical procedure. Thinking that when I declined further treatment that I might have made the right choice after all and wasn’t the most monumental idiot letting myself in for a slow painful death instead of just toughing it out a bit longer.
Not having to tough anything out for a while is a sign of healing, I think. Having to spend your life doing dreadful things and be incredibly strong with gritted teeth, has been difficult when actually I am only five foot one and quite cuddly and vulnerable. If I had a year when I didn’t have to do that, I would be glad.
When you believe that healing is actually taking place you begin to relax, which, in itself, promotes more healing. Finally you can just be yourself.
The dictionary defines healing as: To make whole or sound, to free from ailment, to make a conclusion, to restore.
I wish it for us all and the earth. To restore the seas to a plastic free environment would heal so many animals. To conclude wars would heal so many countries and save so many people. To make sound the atmosphere drenched in carbon emissions would heal the weather and restore it to something less dangerous.
For you I wish that a happy conclusion to previous problems would eventuate. I wish that you and yours would be sound and free from ailment. That if your life has been unhappy, happiness is restored.
Healing, yes. Let’s have some of that.
