Emotional Healing Takes Time To Achieve

Emotional healing and freedom

Written by Sheyla Zayas

Emotional and mental healing is not a one-track course. When you come to realize that something is out of balance, more than likely several areas of your life need a bit more love and attention.

Step by Step Emotional Healing

Although everyone is different, emotional healing usually is best done in layers. Wanting to feel better from anxiety and sadness is understandable. But the fact is, that the peeling back of emotional layers is necessary so that you don’t spill open a Pandora’s box and end up in a healing crisis, which is a temporary worsening of your situation or symptoms.

The good news is that once you start the healing process, it feels amazing to get to know yourself on such a deep level and to truly get to the root cause of why you feel down/anxious or why you keep attracting negative situations/people.

Personal Healing Process

Here is a loose timeline of my own healing process. The journey is different for everyone. This is to show you the number of years and the process I personally went through of peeling back my layers to realize more about myself. Your personal healing journey  will look different than mine because your experiences and the lenses through which you perceive them are different from mine. Yet the end result – joy, peace, calm, abundance, love, etc – are all the same!
