How to Activate Your Self-Healing Ability

Your body houses not only your blood and organs but also your soul, which is an infinite, limitless energy that can truly create miracles if you are open to them.

You may have heard of people healing their bodies, returning from life threatening illnesses or experiencing spontaneous healings. Despite what it may sound like to your rational mind, all of this is possible and is accessible to anyone.

True healing happens on an emotional and spiritual level first and then moves out into the physical realm. For this reason, sometimes it is necessary for the internal work to be completed first before the external work can begin.

Sometimes your healing may just come in the form of an energy shift or an emotional shift. Other times, it may come in the form of a physical transformation.

Everyone is ready in their own time, and there is no judgement on what constitutes as feeling ready, however usually there is a strong sense of knowing that you are ready to let it all go.

1. Leave your ego at the door- healing can happen on any level and the outcome may not be as your ego expects it to be.

2. You must be willing to be healed. You have to be willing to fully release and let go of your illness and to give up personal or egoic gains in regards to your healing.

3. You must be open to the idea of instant healing and be ready to let it happen.

4. Ask for assistance from your angels or spirit guides.

5. Once you have welcomed in the idea of healing, you must stay open to the signs, messages and synchronicities that occur. You must be willing to take divinely inspired action in order to assist with your healing process.

Once you have prepared yourself to receive your healing, you must activate your healing by letting your body and soul know that you are ready.

Find a quiet place. Sit and meditate for a few minutes to clear your mind.


Place your right hand on your belly and your left hand on your heart. Gently breathe in and out.

Start imagining a golden light surrounding your entire body. Imagine this golden light travelling up through your body from your toes to your head. As the light surrounds you, imagine it going into your body through the top of your head and down through your spine. Continue meditating on this visual for at least 3-5 minutes until it feels strong in your mind.

As you watch the golden light pass through your body, imagine it healing and clearing everything that no longer serves you. Ask the light to heal and cleanse everything that no longer serves you.

Allow your breathing to get deeper and deeper and has you clear things with the golden light, allow your exhales to become longer and deeper, as if you are pushing out the stagnant energy. Continue this for 10 minutes or so. Allow yourself to feel any emotions or blocks that arise and try to push past any ego driven thoughts or distractions.

Once you have completed your meditation, say a little prayer. There are no rules to this, but hopefully this gives you some guidance and understanding of how to activate your ability to self-heal.

This is not designed to replace the advice of a medical professional, however your body is an amazing, intelligent instrument that contains so much power and knowledge.
