Soul Healing – Integration of Body, Mind & Consciousness

‘Spirit Woman’, Oil Pastel Drawing by Ingrid Cryns

What is the difference between healing your soul and psychotherapy work? And why would you want to heal your soul at all? Well, soul healing is about working with a broader understanding that embraces the world of spirit and how energy moves through your body and soul. It is also about the integration of your body, spirit & mind consciousness along with a possibly more collective awareness that can transcend a personal sense of self.

Psycho-therapy actually originated as a form of healing (therapy) with the breath of spirit or soul (psyche). Today it is a practice with many different theories that ultimately aims at bringing greater well-being to the individual. It can heal dysfunctional past family relationships, traumatic experiences or help to gain greater confidence or vitality for living. Psychotherapy is also often about talking to someone in a safe space, expressing emotions with someone who can truly see you and reflect back to you a deeper and more authentic truth of who you truly are.

This is Part 2 of a 2 series blog on Facing my Fears Alone in the Wilderness; Click here for Part 1.

Reflecting over those 2 days alone, I felt a beginning peace and contentedness grow within.  Although my journey to get there was fraught with all sorts of mistakes, fumbles, wrong paths taken, I eventually did find my way to a new ‘home’ base. I was persistent, I never gave up, and I faced the unknown with ‘fearlessness’.  Essentially, I felt lots of fear, yet I kept on going, regardless.

Facing my Fears………of Being Alone: Part 1

Initially in my journey to find myself, who I am, or why I even exist, I often went up north to Algonquin Park, or the Frost Centre area (Haliburton, Dorset, Minden in Ontario) and did many solo trips.  I consciously did this to meet my great fear of being ALONE.

On my very first trip, I was so bold, naive and rash that I didn’t even know how to carry the canoe all by myself.  I found myself at the first portage and suddenly realized how I forgot to figure this out and learn it before I left.  After my initial panic & despair, I relaxed a little, slowed down, took some deep breaths and looked carefully at the canoe.  I then lifted it up at one end, jimmied myself up to the middle underneath it, put it on top of my head, turned around until I was facing out and then lifted it up onto my shoulders. I did it!  Then I started walking on the portage.  Except that I forgot to check the map and somehow there was a fork in the road – AND I TOOK THE WRONG FORK!

Hello World!

2013 golden age fireworks picInner and Outer Energetic Shifts 2013

We continue to move through the shifts of these intensely auspicious times. December 2012’s energetic shift prophesied as the end of the world, was in truth the beginning point of a collective shift of consciousness. The old order is showing signs of collapse all around us.  As we are all inter-connected collectively, we are all affected by this growing chaos on some level.  I can experience it at times as a deep, underlying tension or old fears in my body, a need to let go of levels of ancient grief in my system and a huge desire to be part of various grassroots movements to create a newer, utopian reality.  There is the organic food, slow food, tiny house, occupy and homesteading movements to just name a few.
