Embracing Self-Healing: A Journey to Your True Self
We dive into understanding how healing is not just about the physical. It’s about aligning with our true selves, a concept emphasized by Bentinho, who advocates for self-realization and empowerment through consistency and discipline in practice.
Bentinho has often spoken about the importance of creating a supportive environment for self-discovery. Much like a seed needs the right soil to flourish, our journey to self-healing requires an environment that encourages growth. It’s not just about the fleeting moments of inspiration but about the steady, nurturing space that allows us to thrive consistently. It’s not about the discipline we enforce on ourselves but the natural, disciplined environment that we become a part of.
Imagine you are a plant. You need water, sunlight, and good soil to grow. Just like that, for self-healing, you need the right thoughts, consistent practice, and a community that supports you. This is the kind of atmosphere that Ben encourages us to find or create for ourselves.
The challenges we face in life often stem from our own minds—the lack of discipline, the significance we give to our problems, and the beliefs we cling to that don’t serve us. To experience true healing, it’s not enough to just think differently. We have to be willing to let go of old patterns, like the belief that our problems define us or that the world exists separately from our consciousness.
As Bentinho suggests, when we let go of these beliefs, we create space for total healing. This means realizing our true selves, which exist beyond time, space, and the stories we tell about our lives. This realization can be scary, but it’s also liberating. It’s like cleaning out a closet—you have to let go of the old to make room for the new.
Now, how do you start this process? According to Ben, the simplest yet most profound step is to just show up. Sit down, listen, and let yourself be guided. It’s about exposing yourself to teachings and practices that resonate with truth and transcendence. When you consistently expose yourself to these, your consciousness begins to change.
Think of it like this: if you want to get sun-tanned, you need to be in the sun. If you want to heal and grow, you need to be in the presence of teachings that shine a light on your true self. This exposure is crucial because, without it, we get pulled back into old ways of thinking and living.
So, give yourself the gift of time and commitment. Dedicate five weeks to this practice. If, after this time, you feel unchanged, it’s okay. Not every path is for everyone. But if you feel even a spark of something new, something different, hold onto that. It might just be the light of your true self beginning to shine through.
Remember, this journey is about being fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire. It’s about letting go of what you don’t need and embracing what truly matters—your eternal self, your connection to the Divine, and the infinite love and bliss that come with it.
If this speaks to you, I invite you to embark on this path of self-healing. It’s not about changing who you are; it’s about becoming more of who you truly are. And along the way, you might just find that the healing you were looking for has been within you all along.
