By raising awareness of automatic processes, we are providing the heart with the missing information it needed. Once the heart has all the data, it is able to heal itself much like the body’s own immune system. When our hearts begin to heal, our symptoms take care of themselves. When that happens, we find the freedom to discover our true identity, we gain the power to take hold of it, and we enjoy living out of a deep sense of who we really are!
Medication and Biological Conditions
Sometimes our problems are partially, or even completely, biological in nature. Solutions such as diet and exercise or other lifestyle changes are important to consider as one evaluates where her or his difficulties might be coming from and how to address them.
Medication is another important consideration. Some people find medication very helpful for a period of time after which point they can taper off and eventually live without it. Others may be lifelong dependents on medication to maintain a certain quality of life. Still others may require no medication at all.
Different people have different views on the proper role of those medications intended to effect primarily mental change, such as antidepressants. Some may say that the mind is off limits for such invasive measures, while others may hardly give it a second thought. This is an important issue to consider, as medication may present as an option for addressing certain concerns.
There is still much that is empirically unknown about the inner workings of the brain, and even less so about the mind. There may be some biological agents at work in an individual’s difficulties that must be addressed if that person is to achieve his or her goals. Whether through diet and exercise, medication, or even more invasive medical approaches, responding to the physical components of our difficulties is a necessary step toward healing.
