Why "Living the Healed LIfe"?
I have had people ask me why I refer to this journal as "Living the Healed Life." There are several reasons and please feel free to respond to any of them. I love hearing from you.
Mental/Emotional/Physical: The father of my four wonderful children was a man who liked (a lot) to control and abuse. It took me 16 years to be able to get away from him. While that abuse stopped then,...
Poisoning/Cancer/Appendix: ...all the years of stress and "trauma drama" created in this body two rounds of cancer and later a damaged appendix that had to be removed.
During all of these "sick years" I learned many things, Probably the most important of these is really what forgiveness is. At first I thought forgiveness meant "making what he did OK." No. Not at all. Forgiveness, for me, iwasgiving myself those things I always wanted (love, fun, joy, safety, etc) so I didn't have to blame anyone, anymore for not having them. I had to forgive myself all the anger, resentment and guilt I had been feeling for so long. Then my body began to heal. I used only alternative healing supplements and a happy attitude as I had little money and no heath insurance at the time.
Well, it's been 17 years since I last heard I had two years to live. Guess I'm doing something right.:)
