I can see the future and I invite you to envision it with me.
It is a place and time when the model for healthcare has taken a turn for the healthier and more humane. In this future the human being is seen as the self-healing system that it truly is and always has been. When injured and in pain an integrative method is employed to awaken the individual’s natural inner healing properties, potentialities and possibilities.
Prescriptions For Healing
This future that I see makes use of multiple therapies, both modern and ancient, including chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, psychotherapy, yoga, physical therapy, meditation, topical creams and ointments, among others. Primary care doctors prescribe all of these treatments, many of which are available within the primary care facility.
Long gone are the days when people craved a pill to end their pain. Patients are actively involved in their health care. They take self-care seriously and because of their demands the entire medical establishment was forced to change to meet those demands. In this future/present that I see, people are continuously waking up to their own innate healing potential. They no longer want to mask their pain, they want to get it out of their body.
Mind And Body Are One
The mind plays a primary role in this future scenario which I see so vividly. Humans have stopped giving their minds and bodies over to people who believe that those are separate entities. Ancient cultures throughout history have espoused the wholeness of being. Only in the western culture beginning with what has become known as the “modern age” did this belief that mind and body are separate begin. Fortunately, we have come full circle. Once a majority of people stopped believing their bodies and minds were separate is when the real healing began.
This is why meditation also plays a major role in pain control. Even though meditation sounded foreign to most Americans, it is a method that has been enjoyed and employed by ancient traditions as well as contemporary spiritual leaders. It took some time before meditation was demystified enough to become widely practiced by regular folk. But, that happened, thankfully and now if you don’t have a meditation practice you are simply considered not yet awake.
The Socratic command to “Know Thyself” has survived from ancient Greece. It’s no wonder since it epitomizes what’s at the very essence of self-healing beginning with the practice of meditation. Unlike what many people have thought about meditation, the goal is quite simply to focus and understand your own mind. To Know Thyself. Scientists are still discovering all of the benefits meditation offers. A regular meditation practice can help a person control emotions, enhance concentration and decrease stress.
