How Wounds Heal | Johns Hopkins Medicine

Most of us take wound healing for granted. If you get a small cut, you may clean and cover it with a bandage, and move on with your life. Yet under that bandage (or in the open air), the body orchestrates a complex cascade of events designed to heal wounds big and small.

The basic steps of wound healing are:

  1. Stopping the bleeding (hemostasis). When your skin is cut, scraped, or punctured, you usually start to bleed. Within minutes or even seconds, blood cells start to clump together and clot, protecting the wound and preventing further blood loss. These clots, which turn into scabs as they dry, are created by a type of blood cell called a platelet. The clot also contains a protein called fibrin, which forms a net to hold the clot in place.

  2. Inflammation. Once the wound is closed with a clot, the blood vessels can open a bit to allow fresh nutrients and oxygen into the wound for healing. Blood-borne oxygen is essential for healing. The right balance of oxygen is also important — too much or too little and the wound won't heal correctly. Another type of blood cell, a white blood cell called a macrophage, takes on the role of wound protector. This cell fights infection and oversees the repair process. You might see some clear fluid on or around the cut at this time. That is helping clean out the wound. Macrophages also produce chemical messengers, called growth factors, which help repair the wound.

  3. Growth and rebuilding. Blood cells, including oxygen-rich red blood cells, arrive to help build new tissue. Chemical signals instruct cells to create collagen, which serves as a type of scaffolding, and other tissues to begin the repair process. Occasionally, you see the result of this process as a scar that starts out red and eventually dulls. 

  4. Strengthening. Over time, the new tissue gets stronger. You might notice stretching, itching, and even puckering of the wound as that happens. Within 3 months, the wound is almost as strong in its repair as it was before the trauma. The entire healing process might take a couple of years to complete.

The process seems simple enough, but wound healing is actually quite complicated and involves a long series of chemical signals. Certain factors can slow or prevent healing entirely.

One of the most dramatic factors is reduced or inadequate blood supply to the wound. The oxygen and nutrients that new blood carries to the wound are essential to successful healing. A wound that is not getting enough blood could take at least twice as long to heal, if it heals at all. By some estimates, as many as 6.5 million people in the United States suffer with wounds that are not healing well. These are called chronic wounds, which are more common in elderly people or people with diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, or other vascular disease.

If you have a wound that is not healing in a reasonable time frame, make an appointment with your healthcare provider. If your injury seems to be getting worse or appears infected — that is, if it is more swollen, hot to the touch, painful, or oozing pus — see a healthcare provider right away.

10 Tips on Healing Naturally and The Nature of Healing

1.  What is healing? Let’s look at that in contrast to what is disease, or dis-ease. Illness is a lack of harmony with Nature and with our true selves, a dis-integration between mind-body-emotion-spirit. We become out-of-sync so to speak when one of our levels, usually the mind, is superseding or over-riding our heart and soul’s path. Healing involves the allowing and supporting of our different and multiple components to come back into alignment. Illness and disease is conflict and represents the ways we block our growth and development. For example, we block our growth with fear, doubt, worry, etc. and illness represents these blocks. Healing is the resolution of conflict and progressing along our evolutionary path. Many teachers suggest that our primary purpose on Earth is to grow and learn—to evolve.

2.  Relationships are important to all of us, and so they should be. Yet, this is where most conflict arises, from the lack of integrated relationship with our self, with others in our lives, and with Nature. Women tend to be more open to work on relationship communication than men, and keeping all lines open is usually necessary for successful and loving relationships. Men will do best also if they support this process. When we hold onto emotions and don’t express ourselves, these energies create turmoil, conflict, and dis-ease in our body. That’s why talking preventively, even when things aren’t bad or there isn’t a fight, can really keep our relationships healthy. Communicating openly, clearly, honestly, and thoughtfully is very important, especially when there is a delicate or sensitive issue at hand. Being this caring can prevent misunderstandings or hurt feelings, and keep things harmonious and open to growth. Yet, most of us must evolve to live this consciously. We can move toward this with some professional counseling on an individual, couple, or family basis can help us stay out of trouble. Our issues can be with our love partner or spouse, child or parent, or a work associate. Communication pays off, much like practicing Preventive Medicine, in the long run. Yet, talk is only one way to work things out and heal. Try a walk and talk, especially along a flowing river or at the beach. Plus, write a list of your issues and know that healing can take place on many levels and may take time. Give it that space and know that even if you change, it often goes slowly. Have patience, and take some time to organize your thoughts and feelings rather than react and vent. Learning to “fair fight” with a loved one is one thing, yet being able to prevent confusions and altercations is best.

Do we go for things that cannot be true, too much, too many, too often and who are we negotiating into a relationship? Are we looking for ourselves in others or who we wish we were and that shocks the relationship off its foundations—it’s a relatio-quake ratio…and so many wander from one to the other and often once it’s begun it’s too late because you are not properly prepared for the respond-ability required for rational relationships.

3.  Opening to the Spirit and asking for help from the higher levels of our self is often helpful for healing. As I mentioned, much illness comes from this lack of connection or ability to listen to this Higher Self. If and when we do, we can receive the guidance we need and the new ideas and actions necessary to fulfill our purpose and move us forward in our life. We can heal and evolve. Healing the male-female conflicts will help each of us, as we have these issues within our core. Some of our most brilliant psychology minds, like Dr. Carl Jung, suggest that we each have our opposite sex energy as our subconscious. He termed these the anima and animus. The relationship between our thinking mind and deeper selves affect our lives and outward relationships. Thus, working in this inner healing realm and resolving the conflicts we all have between father-mother and male-female can fully improve and heal our worldly relationships. The more we evolve within us, the better our personal connections become. I have had many patients experience and tell me that they were able to improve their love relationships (and work as well) when they stopped running away from the conflicts they encountered in their personal lives. They tended to reach the same impasse with each relationship. Until they took a break and worked out these very intimate and personal issues they have about intimacy and personal relationships, they couldn’t meet and be close with the right person for them. At least, this is the ‘more right’ person, since with every relationship there are some issues and growth to experience.

4.  The way we eat is crucial to health or illness. Much disease comes from poor food choices, mostly over decades, but also in the short term. That is why establishing the foundation of healthy eating should start in childhood. And if we’re parents, we need to follow the Number One rule for feeding kids right, and that’s “Set a Good Example!” This is where Nature comes in and eating foods closer to the source, which is our Earth Mother. She blesses us every season with foods that are best for us—fresh greens in the Spring, cooling fruits and vegetables in the Summer, lots of richer foods like grains, beans, nuts and seeds, plus many veggies in Autumn to help us last through the cold or wet Winter. Connect with this and minimize all the processed and junk foods and chemicals so readily available everywhere in our modern societies. This one area can help protect your health and keep you well throughout your years.

What about NURTURANCE? Nourishing ourselves with care, food from loving cooking, friendship is investing in self, and this investment can comfort and heal us. Being sensitive to our own needs, truly caring for ourselves, nurturing our own being by knowing what will nourish our body and spirit, we can learn the uniqueness of our being, as every human is different.

5.  Exercise activity is crucial to staying healthy and vital, as well as to good circulation and a strong immune system. A balanced daily and long-term program that includes stretching for flexibility, aerobic activity for endurance, and weight work for strength. This all leads to better relaxation and getting our minds out of the way so that healing can happen more easily in our bodies. A vital body rarely gets sick. Yoga and other flexibility-enhancing movements are helpful at keeping us youthful. “We are as young as our spine is flexible.” So, stay young and healthy with regular exercise.

6.  Nutritional supplements support balance and healing. They nourish our cells and tissues, and support optimal function to allow healing to happen biochemically and physiologically. Deficiency symptoms such as fatigue and coldness may require nutrients and hormonal balance (and a more nourishing diet) while congestion and toxicity problems like headaches, allergies, aches and pains, and digestive maladies can be helped by detoxification with herbs (and with a more cleansing diet) and nutritional support. Make sure you or your guide knows what they are doing, and don’t overdo it. We can find the right program for each of us if we listen to both our inner guidance as well as outside wisdom and experience.

7.  Avoid the victim and blame game, the name game. Most of us get into trouble because of the way we think and the judgments we make, both for others and ourselves. When we say things to others out of anger and with an attempt to hurt them, as we may feel hurt, we generate a war of words and feelings. That is not a healing feeling and creates separation. Separation and upset emotions generate dis-ease while love and connection/cooperation toward unity help us heal. Many people have bad habits, self-destructive behavior because they feel victimized by life and don’t feel deserving of love, health, good food, and other ways of nurturing and pleasuring themselves. Sometimes, the number one thing we can do is to heal our attitude towards self and life. I encourage my patients to adopt the philosophy that “this is the only body I have, and I want to treat it in a loving and respectful way.” Then, if we can really feel and believe this, we will begin to eat better, exercise more, learn to handle our stresses, and have a new and different approach to life. Wow!

Don’t live on the harm farm, where no matter what you do ends up out of balance or so it seems. Re-learn to think positively and act confidently. Read the biographies of those who have overcome great obstacles to live fully and use their inspiration as motivation. Live simply, Live well!

8.  Where can we go to Heal? The answer lies within. Some people tap their deeper levels only when they get away from home or work and their everyday world. This may involve a retreat or just going into Nature. Others may benefit from some workshop or therapy program. Getting out of the way, relaxing and letting things flow allows healing to happen—it’s a natural experience our body wants. When everything is flowing through our channels (blood, lymph, energy), we are healthy and vital. Tune in and go to your stress; allow the conflicts to surface. Also, allow your dreams to bring you insight and give you passion for action.

Dream Exercise for Healing—Before you go to bed, write down these three important questions and then meditate on them a few minutes as you drift off to sleep. Our subconscious has the answers we need to solve our health dilemmas if we are willing to listen to this innate wisdom. Make sure you write your questions on paper, ideally in your personal journal as this brings them into form.

  • Body, why am I experiencing this problem (you can be more specific to your concern) right now?
  • What do you wish to tell me?
  • What is needed for healing?

Or use some variation of these questions, and you can make them specific to your personal issues. This is also a technique in guided imagery work to have an internal dialogue with the wise part of your self. Give this a few nights or even weeks to see what comes back; you may be surprised and delighted, and certain conflicts may be resolved.

9.  Shifting and balancing with the Seasons is vital to Staying Healthy. Being aware of your own cycles within Nature’s is a key knowledge to acquire and use throughout life in regards to personal choices, activities, diets, etc. How did you feel last year at this time and what were your dreams then and now? If you journal these things, you’ll have some reference for yourself and this will help you learn. Tune in and you’ll find yourself in there; yes, you’re in there…meet up with yourself and have some fun. Discovering the many dimensions and mysteries of our humanness can be quite an adventure. We were all gifted with treasures — that is the gold at the end of the rainbow of love. We are loved…we are love, love is all around us, let us celebrate and radiate love, which is healing. There is love to light the way…my first book, Staying Healthy with the Seasons, is a guide book for traveling through the cycles of light and dark and the effects on inner and outer climates.

10.  In summary, imbalance occurs primarily from a dominance of thoughts or excessive, stressful emotions, or from a diet that causes congestion or deficiency (too much or not enough, usually both). And the balance and healing lie in the inner work and enhancement of spirituality. Explore all parts of yourself and work/play to integrate them by working through weaknesses and other challenges, and allow yourself to become your full and true Self. Blessings to you all.

10 Tips to Enlightened Eating

  1. You can renew your relationship with food and all life, and plan how you can grow even a little bit of your own food. A garden–whether it’s a window box herb garden or an urban plot–can provide enlightened eating enrichment. Herbs in pots, flowering fruits such as strawberries, or decorative and edible vegetables can be grown in a window box. If you have a balcony or a patio-container garden, there are many other possibilities – flowering peas, nasturtiums, peppers, lettuces, and tomatoes – perhaps mixed with fragrant flowers that will discourage insects. Good spring foods to consume are the leafy green vegetables, such as chard and kale, and lettuces (all of which add many important nutrients to your diet). Also, growing (or buying) fresh sprouts is a fun and simple way to see Nature in action, and these sprouted grains, beans and seeds have good protein and many nutrients.
  2. If you do have space for a larger garden, become familiar with organic methods of pest control. Also be aware of the quality of the seeds you use. (The “terminator technology” is here with non-viable seeds and genetically-modified foods, especially soybeans and corn. The seeds of these foods cannot be replanted EVER and the chemical and genetic changes in the plants are toxic to insects, the Earth, and ourselves.) Sharing the bounty of your garden with others is a great way to build community and get others interested in healthy eating.
  3. Investigate the possibility of community gardening, either in an existing space or somewhere new. Working with other people is a great way to stay motivated, and to get results that would be difficult to achieve alone.
  4. Investigate Farmer’s Markets in your area. The more local the food, the less processing it generally has to go through to get to your table (and often the less chemical spraying, in contrast to out-of-season produce and products shipped from other countries). Talk and listen to the people that you are buying from and make discerning choices. You will likely find that the growers are committed to the idea of healthier foods, and are a good source of information about what is available in your area.
  5. Become aware of which foods are most likely to be handled in ways that are detrimental to your health (pesticides, chemical additives, irradiation, and genetic engineering) and eliminate them from your diet, or buy them in organic form. Check my book, Staying Healthy with Nutrition, for more specifics.
  6. Always carry fresh water and a healthy snack with you. Avoid making food decisions or doing your food shopping when you are ravenously hungry and will eat anything. Eating on the run often involves poor nutrition, unnecessary packaging, and inadequate digestion time, which can leave you more tired and run-down. Making time for your own needs will lead to having more energy for your busy day, and more importantly, not having to spend your valuable resources and time recovering from the results of years of unwise choices.
  7. Talk (and listen) with family, friends, and coworkers about the changes you are making in a supportive way. The more people that are aware of food health issues, the more impact we as consumers will make on the market, NOW! Get involved by making your views known in the marketplace. Many groups are lobbying for better labeling laws, more humane and less toxic farming practices, and cleaner food.
  8. Support and eat at restaurants that provide wholesome menus or advertise “No MSG.” Ask about additives and other health issues. I do! Request that your food be prepared without extra salt or MSG, and find out the quality of the oils used. The reaction you get will determine whether that restaurant is a good one for you. These questions may influence restaurateurs’ decisions if they know it affects whether you spend your money there. When eating out, avoid killer desserts, big starchy meals, and poor food. Remember that it’s not usually the fat that makes us fat; it’s the overeating of sweets and starches.
  9. Be aware of other ways chemicals enter your life. Household cleaners, detergents, and even toothpaste can contain additives that are potentially detrimental to your health and the health of your loved ones, especially children and pets who are more vulnerable, even the familiar products we take for granted. Exposure to chemicals in the workplace or in department stores can be significant. Indoor pollution is often a greater concern than outdoor exposure.
  10. Above all, let these changes occur naturally. Be mindful of what is important to you, and work to educate yourself on those issues. Small changes can have a snowball affect, and the better you feel, the more you will want to do.

P.S. If you have school-age children or aging parents, be sure to inquire into their dietary provisions in school or other care facilities. Let us exercise our nutritional rights while we still have them, because without these treasures, life is not the wondrous adventure it can be.

How do apricots help with depression? Why does diabetes love fat? Why are antibiotics harmful? This and many other things are told in his book by Anthony William, a medium with an unusual gift - to "see" people's ailments. You will learn the secret causes of diseases that modern medicine cannot cope with, learn to listen to the needs of your body and help it heal.

When everything falls apart

Pema Chodron is one of the first Western women to become a Buddhist nun. In her book, based on the teachings of her teachers - the legendary masters of meditation and practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism - she tells how to live the most difficult periods of life, cope with mental pain and change yourself.


Dear friends!

I wrote this book to share with you my knowledge and the theory I preach. It has already received wide recognition as a credible study of the different mental attitudes that cause disease.

I have received hundreds of letters from readers asking for more information. Many of my patients and seminar participants here in America and abroad asked me to explain in more detail the essence and methods of my theory.

My new book is written as a manual. Imagine that you came to my reception or attend my seminar. If you follow my recommendations in the sequence indicated here, then after reading the last paragraph, you will already begin to change your life.

I advise you to read everything first. Then slowly re-read a second time, carefully completing each exercise.

Take your time, pay attention to each of them. If possible, do the exercises with a friend or close relative.

Each chapter opens with an affirmation that is good to use in the area of ​​your life that you are having trouble with. Spend two or three days studying each chapter. Repeat and write down the affirmation many times.

All chapters end with a healing meditation that will help you internalize positive ideas and thus change your pattern of thinking. Reread each meditation several times a day.

Here are a few points of my philosophy:

1. Each of us is responsible for our life experience.

2. Every thought shapes our future.

3. Our strength is in the present moment.

4. We all suffer from dissatisfaction with ourselves and consciousness of our own guilt.

5. Everyone's secret thought: "I'm not good enough."

6. This is only a thought, and a thought can be changed.

7. Resentment, condemnation and consciousness of guilt are the most detrimental states of the soul for us.

8. Getting rid of resentment can even cure cancer.

9. Everything works out for us if we really love ourselves.

10. We must get rid of the past and forgive everyone.

11. One must want to learn to love oneself.

12. Self-respect and agreement with oneself in the present are the keys to positive changes in the future.

13. Every disease in our body we owe to ourselves.

Part 1

Philosophy of Louise Hay

The road to wisdom and knowledge is always open.

What I believe in

In essence, our life is very simple: we get back what we give.

Everything we think about ourselves becomes reality. I am convinced that all of us, including myself, are responsible for everything in our life - both good and bad. Every thought we have shapes the future. Each of us creates our own life experience with our thoughts, feelings and words.

We ourselves create different situations, and then, wasting energy, we blame others for our disappointments. No one and nothing has power over us, since we are the only thinkers in our lives. Only by creating harmony in our minds, we find it in our lives.

Which of the two statements is more typical for you: "People want to harm me" or "Everyone is ready to help me"? The point is that each of these beliefs creates a different experience. Our ideas about ourselves and about life acquire real features.

The cosmos supports every thought that we want to believe.

In other words, our subconscious mind absorbs everything we want to believe in, that is, my ideas about myself and about life become a reality for me, and yours for you. We have unlimited choices about how and what to think. Understanding this, it is better to choose the statement: "Everyone is ready to help me" than "People seek to harm me."

The Cosmic Power never judges or condemns us.

It accepts us for who we are and then reflects our beliefs in our lives. If I want to believe that life is dull, I am alone, no one loves me, then this is how my life will turn out.

If I convince myself that the world is permeated with love, I love and can evoke a response feeling, if I repeat this affirmation many times, then this belief of mine will become a reality. People who love me will enter my life, their feelings will become even stronger, and I will easily express sympathy and heartfelt affection for others.

Most of us have ridiculous ideas about who we are and have strict rules about how we should live.

I say this not in condemnation, since each of us, to the best of our ability and ability, tries to do everything as best as possible.

If we were wiser, understood ourselves and life better, then, of course, we would act differently. Do not reproach yourself for the situation. The very fact that you have discovered Louise Hay means that you are ready to change your life for the better. Thank yourself for this. "Men are crying", "Women don't know how to manage money"... What a rigid framework they drive us into!

Our attitude towards ourselves and life is formed in early childhood under the influence of the adults around us.

It is then that we get our first ideas about ourselves and the world. If you have lived among unhappy, angry, frightened, or guilty people, you have learned a lot of bad things about yourself and your environment. "I always do everything wrong", "It's my fault", "If I'm angry, then I'm bad." Such thoughts make our existence sad and full of disappointments, reflecting the way of life that we want to realize along the way.

Growing up, we strive to recreate the emotional atmosphere in which we spent our childhood.

It is difficult to say whether this is good or bad, right or wrong, but this is what in our minds is associated with the concepts of "home", "family". In building our personal relationships, we try to recreate the family ties that we had with or between our parents. It is no coincidence that our beloved and bosses are often “exactly the same” as mom or dad. We treat ourselves in the same way as our parents treated us, as they did, we scold and punish ourselves. Listen to yourself! You use almost the same words that you heard in the family.

If we were loved in childhood, then now, as adults, we also nurture and cherish ourselves.

How often have you said to yourself: “You are doing everything wrong! It's all your fault!"

“You are wonderful! I love you". How often do you say this to yourself now?

Anyway, I wouldn't blame my parents for this.

We are all victims of those who themselves were victims in their time. Probably, parents could not teach us what they did not know themselves. If your mother or father did not know how to love themselves, then, of course, they could not teach this to you either. They tried their best and acted as they themselves were taught in childhood. If you want to understand your parents better, talk them into remembering their childhood. After patiently listening to the story, you will understand where their fears and sidelong glances came from. It turns out that the parents who, in your opinion, "mistreated" you as a child, were just as intimidated as you are.

I'm sure we choose our parents ourselves.

Each of us decides to incarnate in a certain way, place and time on this planet. We decided to come here to gain certain knowledge and life experience that would ensure our further spiritual and emotional development. We choose our gender, color, country where to be born, and then we look for suitable parents who will reflect the lifestyle that we want to realize on our life path. Then, having matured, we look at them reproachfully and whimper: "It's all your fault!" However, in fact, we ourselves chose them, as they perfectly matched what we would like to accomplish in our lives.

We form our beliefs as children, and then throughout our lives we create situations that respond to them. Look back at your past. You will see how often you find yourself in the same circumstances. I'm sure they reflected what you yourself believe. And it doesn't matter how long this problem existed, how serious it was and to what extent it threatened your life.

Our strength is in the present moment.

All the events of your life up to now have been created by your thoughts, beliefs in the past and words that you uttered yesterday, last week, last month, last year, ten, twenty, thirty, forty years ago or earlier , depending on your age.

However, this is your past. It is gone forever. It is very important to know what you are thinking and what you believe and what you are saying right now, because it is these thoughts and beliefs that will shape your future. Your strength is in the present moment. It is he who determines your actions for tomorrow, next week, next month, etc.

It would be good if you paid attention to what you are thinking about right now. Are your thoughts positive or negative? Do you want them to determine your future? Remember them and keep this in mind in the future.

The main thing in our life is a thought, and a thought can always be changed.

It doesn't matter what the problem is before us; our action is just a reflection of a thought. Even if you experience a feeling of deep dissatisfaction with yourself, it is only the result of what you yourself think so about yourself. "I am a bad man". This thought forms the feeling that you give in to. Be that as it may, if there is no thought, there will be no feeling. And thoughts can be changed.

The thought will change and you will get rid of the feeling.

All this only explains the origin of many of our beliefs. But let's not use this information to justify obsession with our pain or troubles. No matter how long our negative attitude is, the past has no power over us. The source of our strength is the present moment. How wonderful to know this! We can start a free life right now.

Believe it or not, we choose our thoughts.

We can habitually think about the same thing over and over again, so that it does not even seem that we ourselves choose these thoughts. But we have made a peculiar choice, and we can give up some thoughts. Remember how often you didn't want to think positively about yourself. And now you can give up negative thoughts.

It seems to me that everyone I know or have treated suffers in one way or another from dissatisfaction with themselves and consciousness of their own guilt. The more we hate ourselves, the stronger the feeling of guilt, the less prosperous our life is. And vice versa, the more we value and respect ourselves and the less we blame, the more we achieve success in all areas of life.

The deepest thought of everyone I've treated is "I'm not good enough." You can also add to this: "I work little" or "I am unworthy. " Well, how do you recognize yourself? Have you often told yourself, hinted at, or felt "not good enough"? But for whom? And by whose standards?

If this opinion is ingrained in you, how can you make your life prosperous, full of love, joy and health? This subconscious belief will conflict with your life one way or another. You will not be able to combine them in any way, something will definitely go wrong.

I am convinced that resentment, criticism and self-criticism, guilt and fear create the biggest problems.

It is these feelings and states that cause most of the problems in our body and life. And the reason is that we condemn others and are not responsible for our actions. Indeed, if we ourselves are responsible for everything that happens in our lives, then there will be no one to blame. Wherever and whatever happens “out there, outside of us”, it is only a reflection of our own consciousness. I am by no means condoning the bad behavior of some people, but it is our beliefs that attract them and provoke them to treat us so badly.

If you catch yourself saying: “Everyone treats me badly, criticizes, does not help, humiliates and insults me”, then this is your mental attitude, your stereotype of thinking. Probably, some of your thoughts attract the attention of people who allow themselves such behavior. But if you change your attitude, they will step aside and behave like this with others. You will no longer attract them.

I will give the results of the influence of the psychological attitude on the physical condition of people. So, a long-term feeling of resentment and anger devours the body and can provoke cancer. The constant habit of judging and criticizing causes arthritis. Guilt is associated with the expectation of punishment, which forms pain. When a patient comes to me complaining of numerous pains, I know that he is tormented by the consciousness of more than one guilt. Fear and tension can contribute to baldness, peptic ulcers and trophic ulcers on the legs.

I came to the conclusion that forgiveness, getting rid of resentment and peace of mind can even cure cancer. While this may sound overly simplistic, I have experienced the truth of the above.

We can change our attitude towards the past.

The past is gone forever. It is not in our power to change it. But we can change our ideas about it. How stupid it is now, at this moment, to punish ourselves for the offense inflicted on us by someone in the distant past.

I often say to people suffering from resentment, “Please start getting rid of this feeling now, while it is quite easy to do. Don't wait until you're under the surgeon's knife or on your deathbed. Then horror will seize you, you will start to panic, and it will be very difficult for us to focus your thoughts on treatment. It will take time first to get rid of your fear.”

If you convince yourself that you are helpless and defenseless victims and all our efforts to cure you are useless, then the Cosmos will support this belief, as a result your condition will worsen every day. It is imperative that you get out of your head the stupid, rigid and sad thoughts that do not support you. Even our concept of God should work for us, not against us.

In order to get rid of the past, we must be willing to forgive

We must be willing to get rid of the past and forgive everyone, including ourselves. Maybe we don't know how to do it, but perhaps even the phrase "We intend to forgive" means the beginning of a healing process.

Healing is only possible if we let go of the past and forgive everyone.

“I forgive you for not being the way I would like you to be. I forgive and release you." This affirmation makes us free.

All sickness comes from an unwillingness to forgive

The Miracle Lecture Course (by Kenneth Wapnick - Ed) says that all sickness comes from an unwillingness to forgive others and ourselves, and that every time we we get sick, we need to look around and see who we have to forgive.

And I would add to this: you will find that it will be most difficult for you to forgive the very person who needs to be allowed to leave before the others. Forgiveness means giving up, giving in, letting go. But this has nothing to do with bad behavior. It's just getting rid of the whole problem. We don't need to know HOW to forgive. The only thing that is required of us is to have the DESIRE, the INTENTION to forgive. The cosmos will take care of how to do it. We always feel our pain. But it's so hard for many of us to imagine that those who need forgiveness the most have also felt pain. We must understand that they tried to do their best, using the knowledge and information available to them at the time.

When people come to me with problems of their own, whether it be poor health, lack of money, less-than-perfect relationships, or reduced creativity, the only thing I work on with them is LOVE FOR YOURSELF.

I believe that when we truly love and accept ourselves for who we really are, everything in life works out well. Our health improves, we earn more money, our relationships become more harmonious, and our creative abilities are fully unleashed. It seems that everything happens without our efforts, by itself.

Love and peace of mind, a calm, friendly and trusting atmosphere make your work more organized, relationships warmer. In this state, you will quickly find a new job, better housing than before, and even be able to normalize your weight. It is known that people who love themselves and their bodies never mistreat themselves or others.
