The idea that childhood experiences come to bear on who we are as adults has now been accepted as common knowledge. One of the therapies that attempts, in a very explicit and direct manner, to achieve mental and spiritual health by addressing and healing childhood experiences is Inner Child work. This work suggests that the human psyche has child-like aspects and that these aspects or parts can be accessed and communicated with to facilitate healing...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Arvick Baghramian's article explores the opportunity of bridging inner child work and shamanic journeying. Arvick provides insight on how directly interacting with the inner child can restore our connection to the wisdom, power and grace that comes from reintegrating this core aspect of ourselves.
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Wendy Ida has a remarkable story and here she talks about her journey toward self-acceptance and physical well-being. This is the first video in the Strive to Thrive series on Wendy. We will include Part 2 of Wendy’s story when it becomes available.
At age 43, Wendy Ida was 80 pounds overweight; by age 56 she was taking home the top prize in a body building competition. For Wendy and the three other experts featured in "Strive To Thrive," an original video series produced by Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, the difference between accepting the status quo and being transformed hinges on one thing: taking the first step.

For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives...
Editor´s Note: Because this article resonated with millions of people around the globe over the last couple of years, a book was born, released independently, and was then recently released internationally by spiritual publishing giant, Hay House. It is called, "TOP FIVE REGRETS OF THE DYING - A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing" and like this article, is based on the wisdom shared by dying people, but in addition, Bronnie tells her own, personal story and how her life was transformed through the regrets of the dying people she cared for. It is an uplifting, courageous and inspiring journey first begun through this equally uplifting, courageous and inspiring article.

Perhaps the best place to start my first article for All Things Healing is with my own journey to becoming an Art Therapist. A journey that’s been long and convoluted, full of twists and turns, dead-ends and road blocks, false starts and turning back and starting all over again. Ah yes, not to mention lots of being lost and consequently, lots of searching - for both my own self and for a path that would serve me well through life...

Finally in a conversation with this one particular customer service representative I heard myself saying, “I just feel like crying right now, I am so angry!” And then, I did start crying. I was embarrassed, because my ego really likes its persona of being in control. I pride myself on handling conflict with aplomb...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: Do you sometimes feel like lie down and cry? I experienced a major change in my life when I stopped hiding from my emotions but embraced what I felt in each moment. Emotions can be challenging, but they are also an important signal on our healing journey. Embracing painful emotions helped me to create more joy and inner peace in my life. Read this article by Kimberly Schneider can help you to do the same. Enjoy the read.
