Exploring the Mind, Body & Sprit Model of Healing
In mind–body–spirit philosophy, the bad news is that we don’t always get what we want; the good news is that the universe and our soul offer us what we need for our greatest good and evolution. As key tenets of this holistic philosophy, it’s important to understand that these three layers are consistently interacting internally and externally. Played out, any disharmony that exists in our external lives may be mirrored in our emotional and physical self that disrupts our spiritual growth.
As human beings, we like to stay snug in our comfort zone, and without prompts, change is not something we readily embrace. Balancing mind–body–spirit is in sync with the Hippocratic philosophy of treating the whole person, not just the disease. Reconnection to our spiritual self is what healing body and mind is about. When we adopt this model, we become engaged in a continual process that takes responsibility for our evolution as spirit in body.
