Take a second to consider: Clean up your “healing” language.

When we are “sick”, we naturally want to complain and list all our symptoms. A better way to refer to this healing process is as a “project.”  For example, “My body has a healing project right now. It’s created a rash to push out what it doesn’t want.  I’m investigating the cause.”  Seriously! Your body is always attempting to heal.  Instead of seeing your body as failing you, honor your magnificent inner healing intelligence, starting with your words.  Words have power.  Especially with children.  I know many children who are savvy in this language, and they speak powerfully about their body’s healing ability. For example, one seven year old girl recently said to me, “I have a fever that is helping me heal.  My body is strong.”  The question is: Can you trust in your own healing ability, and speak words of this affirmation?
