Healing is easier said than done. It takes time to truly heal, there's patterns that has be broken and reconditioning of the heart and mind to stop seeking a system of coping that has failed us, basically robbing us of joy. The healing journey is a deeper inner working dealing with our shadow, the part that we don't want to speak about due to fear, embarrassment or shame, but this part of us has to be acknowledged in order for us to be able to fully heal. The shadow can and will hold us in bondage if we don't bring it to the light and assess our inner most being. Only then can we break the chains that hold us prisoner, and begin our soul restoration.
