Make us whole!

Finally finished 3 days of training to be a mediator for the state court system. My state has a non-profit center that does mediation. Mediation helps people resolve issues so they don’t have to go to court and spend court fees and have a judge decide. Mediation works to get the parties to a reasonable settlement. The training was good and I will now observe some sessions and them begin to do them.

It is so strange. The three days that I was in class I had no stomach issues but today it’s back. It just lets me know that when my mind is totally occupied there are no problems. It clearly shows that I am the problem.

dividedI have been thinking a great deal about how connected are mind, body and spirit. When science became at the forefront only the body was considered. In recent years we have begun to see that you can’t treat one part. In some ways we have moved forward and in other ways not. I think we see the connection but medicine has become so specialized that each part of our body has a different doctor. They don’t always communicate well so not only have we forgotten about the other two but the body is divided up.

It seems that the best of all worlds would be to have a clinic where every part was addressed. There would be physicians for everything, mental health people, alternative health providers and the option for spiritual guidance. How wonderful that would be. The whole team would sit down and consider the care of each person. Holistic medicine at its best! It’s not going to happen but what a healing thing it would be.

holisticI guess we have to try and pull all the parts together ourselves and seek out the best helpers that we can.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something that I feel I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very vast for me. I am having a look ahead for your next post, I will try to get the cling of it!

    1. Alex, the concept of wholeness is both vast and minuscule. It is difficult for anyone else to know us. It is even difficult for us to know ourselves completely. Part of live is striving to understand. I don’t know that I have helped at all with your thoughts. Please ask any questions and I will let you know my thinking. Peace, Suzanne

  3. I do agree with all of the ideas you have offered in your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. May you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
