ACTS that MATTER: Act 1. Be Honest

0 Comments

ACT ONE: BE HONEST Healing begins with honesty. Without it, healing is impossible. It is the act exposing ourselves without distractions or inhibitions.

ACTS THAT MATTER: Act 3. Reach Out

ACT 3. REACH OUT FOR HELP Being honest and identifying resources are the first two acts in healing. The third is reaching out for help.

ACT 7:  FEEL! A commitment to feeling our feelings, passions, desires, and wants are the fuel for change, transformation, and clarity.  We must desire something before you can see it, obtain it.  For example, before we can have freedom, love, healing, there must be a desire for them.  Feelings are like magnets.  They can repel, […]

ACT 9: THINK POSITIVE If gratitude is the gateway to transformation, thinking positively is the road map. Envisioning the road map and infusing it with positivism is necessary for healing. Our thoughts being on the healing journey will vary: they can be positive, indifferent, negative, incredulous, and so on. Negative thoughts will create obstacles, and […]

ACT 10: HONOR Honor is an act that matters in healing.  It is the act of acknowledging and accepting the role that every person, experience, and event has played in our lives.  Our healing, our participation in a clarified life depends on our ability to honor difficult experiences and relationships–not judging them to be bad.
