Healing means becoming more whole, more able to accomplish what you wish to accomplish, and more able to enjoy your life. This wholeness may involve the healing of a physical wound, an emotional disturbance, a manipulative behavior (rage, addiction, shyness), or conflictual relationships.

Healing is an active, living process. You can learn how to heal yourself. Medicines, supplements, surgery, exercise – they help but are only support for the self-healing process. Antibiotics can weaken a bacterium, but only your immune system can actually kill and get rid of it. Studies show the single most important thing you can do is to learn to create mental and physical relaxation and balance. These, along with guided imagery, meditation, self-hypnosis, and prayer are very potent mind tools for getting you well and keeping you well.

Definition of Self Healing

The term self-healing comes from two words, namely self and healing. Healing means healing, while self means self. So, the term self-healing means self-healing.

Self-healing here can cover a very wide realm. Starting from healing the soul, healing inner wounds, to the mind. In short, self-healing means healing inner wounds that affect one’s emotional state or mental health.

The existence of this inner wound can occur due to various factors. For example, traumatic feelings that arise as a result of improper treatment or failure in the past.

Basically, every internal wound has a different time span. However, in general, the inner wounds that reside in a person can last for a long time.

This inner wound that is continuously left will have a negative impact on our mental health. For example, we become susceptible to anxiety disorders, stress, depression, and even the risk of self-harm that leads to early suicide attempts.

Signs You Need Self Healing

The presence of inner wounds sometimes cannot be realized just like that until finally there is an incident that succeeds in making us realize that self-healing means that it needs to be done.

Here are some signs you need self-healing.

1. Become More Sensitive

The first sign that often occurs when someone needs self-healing means that there is a change in attitude that becomes more sensitive than before.

For example, it is easy to cry over small things, be easily offended by a word, to easily angry over trivial things.

Well, when this condition happens to you, it’s a good idea to start considering self-healing.

2. Often Thinks Negatively

In addition to being more sensitive to small things, people with inner wounds who need self-healing are often plagued with negative thoughts.

They begin to develop bad scenarios for something that can happen to them, easily feel pessimistic when doing something, to despair with their lives.

If this happens to you, self-healing means that it is very necessary to help get rid of these negative thoughts.

3. Replying to Bad Treatment by Others

When a person’s inner wounds are just buried, especially for a very long time, that person will have a tendency to treat others the way they are treated. In other words, revenge.

They will retaliate for any form of bad treatment that has been done by others to them. Not only that, they also have a tendency to always want to be prioritized, and to satisfy the existing ego.

4. It’s hard to forgive and trust people

One of the meanings of self-healing is trying to accept and forgive the past. People with emotional wounds often find it difficult to forgive and trust others (trust issues).

If left unchecked, this condition can interfere with a person’s social life. They will find it difficult to get along, lack empathy, and only want to be selfish.

5. Tend not to care about many things

Inner wounds that are left for a long time can turn a person into apathetic or indifferent to those around him. They don’t care what other people are like, even if it’s the closest people.

If you feel this way, it is a sign of self-healing, meaning that it must be done as soon as possible.

Although the signs above are sufficient to describe your current condition, you should do further consultation with the experts so that you do not self-diagnose. In addition, consulting can also help you heal your inner wounds appropriately and efficiently.

Those are the benefits that you can get from self-healing. As for how to do self-healing, you can do it by following the steps below.

Types and Methods of Self Healing

There are 5 types of self-healing, meaning that you can apply it along with how to do it.

1. Forgiveness

Self-healing means making peace with yourself and forgiving the mistakes that have been made by others. Making peace with what has happened is not easy to do.

However, if done seriously, this can release negative emotions that are in us. We return to being fully human beings who are able to sympathize, empathize, respect ourselves, and enjoy life.

You can make peace with yourself by meditating. The method is as follows:

1. Close your eyes, and calm your mind while regulating your breathing to be more relaxed. Do this for about 3 minutes.

2. Next, put your finger on your forehead

3. Begin to give thanks and be grateful for all the things you have

4. After that, slowly recall the mistakes you’ve made and start apologizing to yourself while accepting the situation

2. Self Compassion

In addition to making peace with the situation, self-healing means being honest with yourself. Be open to what we are feeling right now.

It can help you to love yourself, express yourself, and get to know who you really are. When you try to be honest with yourself, you will find it easier to build relationships with those around you and with other people.

3. Positive Self Talk

Talking to yourself doesn’t always have a bad connotation. If this is done properly, it will make you more relaxed, improve your mood, be more positive, and relieve anxiety or despair.

To do self-healing on this one is quite easy. The trick is to choose a quiet place, regulate your breathing, and start talking to yourself about everything that concerns you and the environment around you.

4. Gratitude

In addition to the three things above, self-healing means being grateful for everything you have by expressing it through actions or words.

For example, you thank people who have always supported you. Be it parents, spouse, or closest relatives. You can say it directly or send a short message via Whatsapp and other social media platforms.

5. Mindfulness

Mindfulness is one way of self-healing that you can do to gain full awareness of yourself and the environment around you.

By applying this you will be more careful when acting, behaving, and making decisions. Because, those who have full awareness of themselves will find it easier to control everything, such as stress, anxiety, and negative energy.


Self-healing refers to the things you can do to cause your internal system to function better and heal you faster and more thoroughly. Self-healing involves behaving wisely, tuning into the true needs of your body, mind, spirit, and soul and making wise choices – to eat the right way, exercise the right way, and get the right amount of sleep. Learn deep relaxation for ten or twenty minutes each day, three times a day if you want even better results.

During this time focus on peace, harmony, beauty, love, and other similar experiences. Meditation, prayer, and other deep relaxation techniques will help you eliminate distractions. During this time, allow yourself to feel completely accepting of yourself, exactly as you are and accepting the world just as it is at this moment – after all, it cannot at this moment be any different from how it is at this moment!

Fill your mind with the things you feel grateful that you have to feel and experience in your life. Give thanks and feel the gratitude in your body. Visualize your body healing itself and becoming more whole and functional. Then picture yourself as completely well, happy and healthy.  That’s the key to the secrets of self-healing!  Just remember to do it several times a day.
