Healing is something that is near and dear to my heart. It is the space that I am in right now, it is my focus. I have been through a lot and some of the things that I have been through inhibited me from moving forward in my life. Living in the past has left me confused and directionless. When I acknowledged that I needed some clarity in my life, it was time to start reading Healing Your Past and Releasing Your Future.
Have you ever felt directionless, a lack of clarity or even like you don’t know your purpose? Maybe it is time for us to start our healing journies instead of looking for a purpose.
I have had this book collecting dust or in the back of a bag somewhere and I finally decided to read it. I needed to read it. This book for me was going to be the blueprint for healing.
While Reading Healing Your Past and Releasing Your Future
Healing is a process. It includes letting go of baggage and replacing it with positive things. Healing can mean not replaying a particular part of your past, which can happen subconsciously or consciously.
Some steps towards healing include acknowledging, letting go and moving on. One of the parts of Healing Your Past and Releasing Your Future is the structure and steps provided. At the end of each chapter, there are steps to healing, freedom, and restoration and then charts showing healthy and unhealthy development.
Structure of Chapters
Each chapter starts off with a story/example and breaks off to explain what is suppose to happen at each stage. After the explanation, we get the conclusion of the story which is when the primary person goes through the healing process and is restored.
The chapter concludes with the charts as mentioned earlier and steps towards healing.
What I learned
One of the most interesting points that the book makes is that the world doesn’t run on feelings. That phrase made me think of my relationship with my emotions. I had confused my feelings with intuition. My feelings had ruled my world and told me what to do. After reading that phrase, I decided to let that way of thinking go.
This book also helped me identify roots and triggers. I found that going through each stage of development was helpful and learning the outcomes of each step has also opened my eyes.
The Ending of Healing Your Past, Releasing Your Future
The end ties everything together. The Fabiano’s compares physical and emotional development with spiritual development which I found to be very helpful. The ending could have been a little bit more polished as far as ideas are concerned. Otherwise, it tied everything together.
If you are someone who is looking to get started on their healing journey I recommend this book as the first step. Healing your past and releasing your future is a blueprint for you to begin mapping out triggers or specific struggles that you need to work through.
Even though the book can be classified as a self-help book, after reading it I feel more encouraged to go to therapy. This book has helped me identify some internal struggles of mine, and it’ll make my therapy journey much more thorough.
