Life is not getting any easier to live. We have to admit that there are way too many trials to face, and we just can’t go facing them alone. We naturally encounter difficulties and problems along the way, and at times that we are at our lowest we need to be reminded that we are not alone. And the best way is through the magic of touch. Surprising as it seem, even just the warmth of a friends palm on our back comforts us.
…this brings to mind the Healing touch technique shared most recently by Laura Silva. She reminded me of the comfort I seek from my mother when I was young and tumbled in the ground or when I cut myself with the toy I am playing with. True that with the mere soothing voice and the touch of love when she rubbed my back as I control my tears, everything felt better. As an adult, we still need the pampering. And the magic of touch heals even our deepest wounds. We get healed.
It is not a wonder why I connect this to the power of positive thinking. That kind of touch made me convince myself that everything is alright now, and this becomes the Holistic healing practices of being in that relaxed state, the Alpha and Theta brain state. This is when we can think straight without having the emotions interfere. In this state we become at ease, we get trained to be stressed free enough to do away with diseases, illnesses and those other factors that leads to being sick. It is said that we need to develop healing imagery where we imagine to achieve that perfectly healthy us we hope to be in. we visualize it to be a reality and it will. We also have to learn to Master our thoughts; in particular, the D-B-E process or the Desire, Belief and Expectancy. It is defined as “You know what you want; you believe it will happen; and you expect it to happen.”
The mind is powerful. If we only accept it enough to learn its capability of healing ourselves, may it be from physical, emotional or mental pain. Let us also share that capability by convincing others of its power and by using “touch” as the tool to the achievement of that goal. A firm but gentle handshake to convey your message of empathy, a warm squeeze on the shoulder, a press of your palm on the cheek, a hug…all those simple but effective ways to show that they are not alone…it will help convince that they are comforted and that they can make it through.
