Embracing the Non-linear Healing Process


Overview: The Non-Linear Nature of Healing

Healing is a process that is often depicted as a linear journey, where you start from a point of pain and gradually progresses towards complete recovery. However, this oversimplified view fails to capture the true nature of healing, which is often non-linear and unpredictable. In reality, healing is a complex and multifaceted process that involves a range of emotions, experiences, and setbacks. It is not a simple matter of moving from point A to point B, but rather a windy road filled with ups and downs, progress and setbacks.  Healing is a progressive journey that requires patience, perseverance, and self-compassion.

It's easy to become discouraged or frustrated when you experience setbacks or feel like you're not moving fast enough.  But when you practice self-compassion, it helps you cultivate resilience and perseverance necessary to weather the various storms of the healing journey.

And once you understand that healing is non-linear, it can help you accept that setbacks are a natural part of the journey and not a sign of failure.  Embracing this aspect of the healing journey is an opportunity for profound growth and self-discovery.

Additionally, while there are common themes in everyone's life stories, your healing journey is unique to your individual life experiences and circumstances.  Healing is deeply personal, and there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to it.  It requires self-awareness, self-compassion, and a willingness to explore and address the root causes of your pain.  It's so important to honor your own path, understand your unique needs, and go at a pace that feels right for you.

You Are Not Alone:  Key Steps to Navigating Your Healing Journey

Remember that you do not have to navigate your healing journey alone.  There are numerous healing modalities and support groups to help you navigate the various stages of your healing journey.  No matter what path you choose, be sure to honor your intuition regarding the practitioners you choose to work with, and be open to exploring modalities that call out to you to find the tools and resources that resonate with you.  

  1. Embrace the non-linear nature of healing and recognize that setbacks are opportunities for growth and self-discovery.
  2. Seek help and lean on your support system. Surround yourself with people who understand and support your journey. 
  3. Prioritize self-care and be compassionate with yourself.  Give yourself the same grace you so generously give to others.

Holistic Approaches: Shamanic Healing and Hypnosis

Shamanic healing and hypnosis are holistic approaches that can complement traditional therapy and support systems, providing additional avenues for personal growth and well-being.

Shamanic Healing

Shamanic healing is an ancient spiritual practice that aims to restore balance and harmony within your energy blueprint by connecting with the spiritual realm. Practitioners use energy medicine techniques such as energy clearing, soul retrieval, ancestral healing, and cord-cutting to facilitate healing.  Learn more about Shamanic Healing Ceremonies I offer and what you can expect in a session.  


Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique that involves guiding you into a deeply relaxed state, allowing you to access your subconscious mind. In this state, you are more receptive to suggestions and address root causes so you can align your conscious and subconscious minds to achieve desired results.  Learn more about Hypnosis and various hypnotic intentions we can explore together.
