You Are Your Own Guru






When I first started on this inner journey toward my path to wellness, I was seeing an energetic healer, kinesiologist, holistic chiropractor, life coach, health coach, acupuncturist, reiki master, body worker, naturopath, herbalist, Chinese doctor, western doctors, and meditation master. I was doing yoga, oiling pulling, juicing, getting colonics and much more — and spending thousands of dollars in the process

Essentially, I was hoping for these people and modalities to fix me. I so desperately wanted someone else to do it for me, to help me. Fix me. Save me.

The problem with this was that I put all my power outside of myself — in these people and healing modalities. I forgot that I am my own best guru. None of these people or modalities can do it for me. 

Don’t get me wrong! These services and healing modalities are definitely supportive and incredibly powerful. They are great tools to help you on your journey. Heck, I still use some of them! But, they aren’t the final answer…You are! You have, within you, the power to heal yourself. All you have to do is make the conscious decision to heal.

I just finished reading Dying to Be Me by Anita Moorjani. In it, she talks all about being her own best healer after her near death experience. I highly recommend this book! Moorjani talks about how she lived in a constant state of fear which fed her cancer. Dying to Be Me is a must read.

When I realised I was my own biggest guru, it was such a profound moment for me. This meant I was in control of my health and happiness. With this realisation, then, comes responsibility. It’s a responsibility some aren’t willing to accept. That’s okay, too. The main thing is to do what’s right for you. It really is that simple.

Have you ever experienced this — where you put all your power in healers and alternative therapies? I would love to hear from you, so share with me in the comments below.

Thank you for your honesty and insights. The love here in our tribe is truly incredible!

    This is so true. ..

    I’ve always search for someone to fix me, heal me and love me enough so I can love me back, but it doesn’t work. There are no quick fixes in life no matter how hard we all search for it at times.

    I have recently realised that the only guru who can (and will)heal me is me, but it’s not easy nor quick and that means it’s worth it and it WILL work.

    So many emotions. ..

    Thank you Melissa, you and the tribe! The articles and comments always feel like a cuddle when I read them..
