healing

A Quote by Saint Seraphim of Sarov on god, faith, action, growth, healing, heaven, peace, spirit, kingdom, and sorrows

Bear sorrows for the sake of the Heavenly Kingdom.  Without sorrows there is no salvation.  On the other hand, the Kingdom of God awaits those who have patiently endured.  And all the glory of the world is nothing in comparison.  My joy!  I implore you to acquire a peaceful spirit.

A Quote by Michelle Skye on brigid, candlemas, fire, goddess, healing, imbolc, imbolg, inspiration, light, mind, soul, transformation, and quickening

Brigid has been known by many names: Brigit, Brig, Bride, Brigantia, Saint Brigid, and Mary of the Gael.  But no name encapsulates her personality as well as the term Breo Saighead (or Breo Aigit), meaning "fiery arrow or power."  Although this term was thought to be the root source of Brigid's name (as stated in the ninth-century book Cormac' Glossary), modern scholars have proven this early etymology to be based on folk legends and rumors rather than on scholarly sources.  Yet the term Breo Saighead will not go away.  It remains with this powerful triple goddess of the fire, as she inspires, transforms, and heals.  Brigid is the force behind grand ideas and simple comforts.  She is direct, quick, enlightening, and enlivening.  She is the shaft of lightning or the glowing candle that illuminates our world.  Fast, furious, bold, and strong, she arrives quickly and departs just as fast, leaving behind a brighter mind or soul or heart.  Brigid's gifts lie not in what she brings to you, but rather in casting light on what you can bring to the world.

A Quote by St. John of Kronstadt on god, christianity, truth, spirituality, meditation, death, healing, renewel, love, and life

Christ is our hope, our cleansing and santification, our resurrection, life and repose.  He alone is what we all need, and therefore, the Orthodox Church constantaly pronounces these words aloud so that we may hear them during Holy Services of the Church, and be constantly renewed.  For we are inclined to forget the only thing we need.  With death all will be taken from us, all earthly goods, riches, beauty of body and raiment, spacious dwellings, etc., but the virtue of the soul, that incorruptible raiment, shall remain with us eternally.

A Quote by Gerontissa Makrina on god, spirituality, christianity, forgiveness, healing, love, psychology, peace, and truth

Continually forgive others.  Forgive AT ONCE, not one second latter, not one half second later, because if you hesitate to forgive, jealousy comes in the door, then hatred and envy.  Forgive instantly as Christ forgives instantly.

True forgiveness is a self-healing process which starts with you and gradually extends to everyone else.

A Quote by St. John Chrysostom on god, christianity, spirituality, healing, forgiveness, shame, evil, truth, and love

Be ashamed when you sin, don't be ashamed when you repent [To repent means to have a change of heart and mind.  It is not simply a feeling of sorrow ,but a psycho/spiritual growth away from evil/death and a turning to God/life].  Sin is the wound, repentance is the medicine.  Sin is followed by shame; repentance is followed by boldness [ Boldness means to beg God for undeserved mercy].  Satan has overturned this order and given boldness to sin and shame to repentance.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on life, healing, mind, and health

Healing requires far more of us than just the participation of our intellectual and even our emotional resources. And it certainly demands that we do more than look backwards at the dead-end archives of our past. Healing is, by definition, taking a process of disintegration of life and transforming into a process of return to life.

A Quote by Father Arseny on god, christianity, spirituality, awareness, forgiveness, healing, love, and compassion

Remember and have no doubt!  The God who can punish us for our sins is also capable in His limitless mercy of absolving us from our sins.  There is no heavy sin or curse that cannot be redeemed by deeds and prayer.

A Quote by St. John Chrysostom on god, christianity, healing, miracles, spirituality, love, freedom, hope, and truth

For if you change from inhumanity to alms giving, you have stretched fourth the hand that was withered.  If you withdraw from theaters and go to church, you have cured the lame foot.  If you draw back your eyes from a harlot ... you have opened them when they were blind ... These are the greatest miracles.
