It’s a wonder, our bodies’ natural inclination to heal and be whole. Sometimes a little nudge helps to support that natural inclination.

Debra taught me a technique she learned someplace. It’s a bedtime technique for healing. I use it a lot, like a mantra as I fall asleep, and I love it.

“Tonight my dreams solve the problem of     my sore toe     and cure it.”  Fill in the blank — my sore toe, my anxiety about________, this cough, etc.

And it’s interesting to notice how the healing comes about. Sometimes it’s straightforward — my toe is soon just better. Sometimes it’s in strange and mysterious ways, ways that tell me that all of creation participates with our natural inclination to heal and be whole.
