The four elements of healing from an indigenous point-of-view are based on connection.
- Listen. Listen to yourself and your environment. It’s never too late to learn how to listen. You can identify when something is out of place by listening what is happening inside and outside of yourself.
- Supportive relationships. Seek supportive relationships that shine the light on things when something is amiss. Be supportive of yourself.
- Unconditional love. You can’t help but heal when you are loved, especially by yourself. You’re connected to yourself, other people, nature and the spiritual world. You are worth loving.
- Positive action. It’s okay to hope, wish and pray for things. Action is necessary to make change. You won't change if you return to the same routines. See a therapist, priest or counselor to talk through your trauma.
