The actual psychological personality of a person is referred to as the “self” of a person. And each one of us has a hidden self within us, though we may not be aware of it.
Human beings think their consciousness controls their actions. But actually, it’s our inner self that guides our behavior in our day-to-day life.
This self is constructed and undergoes a transformation with the passage of time as we experience new things. Ego also forms a part of our inner self. It makes us fight for our own identity in the world.
This means we identify as individuals separated from others. It can make us proud and selfish and neglect certain facts, which can then become obstacles in our self-awareness and degrade our self-development.
So if we do want to develop, we must learn the art of self-introspection. This means that we must look within ourselves and analyze our personality. This way, we can identify our strengths and weaknesses.
After this, it will be easy for us to learn the methods that add on to our strengths and obliterate our weaknesses.
We will then become more attracted to positive ways of life, like engaging in selfless service for the good of humanity and moving away from the negative feelings in life, such as jealousy and frustration. This will lead to the healing of the inner self.
Another way of self-healing is to take on an optimistic attitude towards life. Many of us are prone to pessimistic thinking, which is the reason why they fail to realize the possibility of a solution to the problem.
Taking on a positive and constructive attitude will give you the strength to face the problems of life and seek a solution to them.
Self-healing can also boost your energy level and aid in curing disorders like insomnia, aches, depression, and various physical and mental ailments.
Meditation and yoga are some of the other ways that can help you realize your best self.
Meditation is a method of healing that helps you move past your own troubles and embrace those of humanity as a whole.
It is a three-way process that works through self-regulation, self-exploration, and self-liberation. It also helps us keep a check on our animal desires and improves our concentration. This brings out our potential by way of several exercises and strengthens our character. It leads us to a spiritual realization and bridges the gap between our real and true self.
Moreover, meditating helps us learn more efficiently from our mistakes and work on our weaknesses so there is a transformation in our personality. Last but not least, it reveals to us the truth of life and death and contributes to one’s process of self-healing.
Yoga, on the other hand, helps us achieve tranquility of mind. It provides relaxation and reduces stress, which aids self-healing.
‘Reiki’, like yoga, uses improved energy flow to achieve self-healing. Reiki practitioners can help the body heal many different types of physical and mental ailments, and you can use Reiki to heal yourself by learning how to become a channel of healing light.
Self-love is another method we can use to transform our inner self.
Every person wants to care for those they love. So, if a person loves themselves, they will make every efforts to transform and develop themselves and become a better person.
