Love is the Healer By Nick Ralls

I came across another one of Nick Ralls pieces and thought how very fitting it was. I will explain how I felt it pertained to survivors after.




Love is the Healer
By
Nick Ralls

I realise that I am a healer... and the people in my life are healing me too with their thoughts, words and actions. We are here on this planet to heal one another. And when we give another something that makes them feel better that is our medicine to give. When we receive the same we get medicine from others.


OUR LIFE is all about healing.
You and I are healers
And the only way to heal is through love!!!
The best doctors and the best nurses are those who love their patients... even if they might not actively think they are loving their patients when they go about their caring
It is the love that heals.
When we go into a loving and caring environment the healing begins... that is why so many of us start to feel better when we sit in the doctor's offices even before we have seen the doctor. We know instinctively that the healing is beginning.
When the health practitioner gives us loving and healing attention we start to feel better...so we heal faster.
But if, on the other hand, the practitioner is miles away we feel unconnected and not trusting of our healing process. We always feel the best doctors and the best nurses are those who show us by their actions and their words just how much they care for us and want us to get better. The worst doctors are those who detach themselves from our situation and make us feel they could not care less.
But each of us is a healer. We heal one another in our daily life
When we give another something that makes them better or makes them feel better then we are giving them medicine.
We heal the people in our lives through:
* Giving time to them... hearing them and being there for them
* Encouraging them... making them feel good
* Serving them... carrying out acts of kindness
* Offering therapies...hugs, kisses, massages, back rubs and so on
* Lifting them when they are down.. reminding them just how special and important they are
* Being at their side when they need a friend
* Sending them loving thoughts, prayers and energy.
And so we can go on.
And we get healing from others in our life when we accept their gifts of support, love and nurturing.
Those who look after us, look out for us and keep us in their thoughts are healing us.
When we send those loving thoughts to communities and the world at large we are healing larger areas by the positive energy that we are able to transmit... after all we are all connected at the source.. we are all One at the source.
And then we need to be open to heal ourselves.
We do this by pouring goodness into our lives
We do this by pouring truth into our lives
We do this by allowing beauty into our lives.
In that way, we allow our soul to express in its magnificence.
So let us open ourselves up to loving people... giving those who display unloving actions a wide berth.
So let us nurture and pamper ourselves
So let us allow healing to come into our lives. How much have we got planned for the next week that will be healing our lives? How much are we doing to make our lives so much better and more pleasant in the days, weeks and months ahead?
We are all in need of healing. Our life is a healing journey
We heal ourselves of all the fearful experiences both in our minds and our bodies so we can set ourselves free and find our way back to love.. as a state of being all of the time.
Love heals and love is our final destination.

So dear and special friend.. I wish you all the healing you need... all the love that you need and always remember just how special and how important you are in the world.


I think this piece is just wonderful. Although not directly intended to be directed at a rape survivor, I felt that is certainly was.

The love that a survivor needs may be more then they would have usually needs. In this Nick writes of how others heal others. That is part of the reason I created RASA Survivors. Survivors together listening and understanding one another, offering them comfort that others may not know how to give.

As Nick Ralls goes on to explain how we can help heal others, it reminded me of what survivors should be doing with themselves daily maybe twice as hard. Allowing beauty into their lives, nurturing and pampering themselves. After a rape or any other violent crime that is desperately needed.

Although, I will still have my tough times, I will try and remember this piece of work by Nick Ralls. It maybe one of the best tools yet!
