Healing quotes

Disclaimer: these quotes do not inherently heal, they're just about healing 😅 I had a friend recently travel around the world for a year, studying indigenous healing practices. He gave a presentation about his experiences and there were a few quotes that I identified with and wanted to save. Here goes:
  1. Sometimes you have to understand what people are healing from to understand their healing processes and how they heal.
    Never thought about it in this way, but it's true
  2. It's not about being balanced; it's about being centered.
    I think this is a much better way of viewing work-life balance or whatever we're trying to balance in our lives. It's exhausting trying to divvy up time equally among all the different parts of our lives
  3. You don't heal people; you help people heal themselves.
    No one can provide all of the answers for you. While other people can help you, ultimately your journey is just that - your own
  4. Healing has to do with the person being healed; not all techniques work for everyone
    You do you
  5. Sleep, diet, exercise, and mediation can solve just about everything
    The four things that are most lacking in my current life sigh
  6. The people who heal the best are the ones who don't spend all of their time healing
    If you're just focused on "healing" all the time, you're not living your life. Just go live life
  7. 😊
