The belief is that we all “want” to heal, but the reality is that many people fear becoming healthy. Wounds become a part of a person’s identity, consciously or unconsciously, and we are not ready to give that up. Caroline Myss believes that we have relied upon the mind to do the soul’s task. While the mind continues our wounded narratives, true healing belongs to the power of our soul and confronting truth. We need to embrace the mystical power of the soul to truly understand that healing is an act of transformation, not a confrontation with an illness.
