In our desire for spiritual healing, it is important for us not to be attached to a specific image of how the healing should appear. Spiritual healing manifests itself in as many ways as there are individuals manifesting it. Spiritual healing is a movement toward a greater wholeness of being. This can take many forms.
The first step in spiritual healing is to recognize our own needs for healing. With physical illness these needs may seem obvious. In other situations the needs may not be so obvious. Some conditions of suffering seem to involve other persons or external circumstances. If we are blaming other persons or circumstances for our suffering, then we are not seeing the need for our own spiritual healing. Spiritual healing begins with the recognition that “I'm the one who needs to be healed.”
