Healing Quotes from Various Authors

healing quotes

Here is a collection of healing quotes taken from some of the books we’ve covered so far as we tread along The Path to Awesomeness: our journey to becoming SUPER, being HUMAN.

Healing, in this context, refers not only to your physical body, but also your emotional, mental, and more importantly, spiritual health – all of which comprise the totality of your well-being.

May the words remind you of your AWESOMENESS!


Healing Quotes from Louise Hay

“We may not know how to forgive, and we may not want to forgive, but the very fact that we say we are willing to forgive begins the healing process.”

Awareness is the first step in healing or changing. When we have some pattern buried deeply within us, we must become aware of it in order to heal the condition.”

Love is always the answer to healing of any sort. And the pathway to love is forgiveness.”

healing quotes

“Loving and approving of yourself, trusting in the process of life and feeling safe because you know the power of your own mind make up the best diet I know of.”

“The word incurable, which is so frightening to so many people, means to me that this particular condition cannot be cured by any outer means and that we must go within to find the cure.”


“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”

Healing Quotes from Lissa Rankin

“The foundation stone, the one upon which everything else builds, is your inner knowing, the healing wisdom of your body and soul that knows what’s true for you and guides you, in your own unique way, back to better health.”

The body is a miracle waiting to happen, if only we optimize its ability to do what it’s made to do naturally.”

“Illness offers us a precious opportunity to investigate our lives without judgment, diagnose the root cause of what might be contributing to an illness, realign ourselves spiritually, and do what we can to make our bodies ripe for miracles.”

“Being unapologetically who we are soothes the mind, halts the stress response, induces the relaxation response, and heals the body.”

healing quotes

The body is designed to repair itself when it gets sick, and we have clear evidence that those who nurture their bodies, minds, and spirits while staying hopeful and believing in their ability to get well are more likely to be cured.”

“The only way to truly heal is to engage in radical self-care born of genuine love and compassion for yourself.”

“It’s not enough to focus solely on the body without taking into account the health of the mind. Promoting health of the body without encouraging health of the mind is an exercise in futility. Not until we realize that our bodies are mirrors of our interpersonal, spiritual, professional, sexual, creative, financial, environmental, mental, and emotional health will we truly heal.”

“If healers could heal themselves first, we would be able to serve and love from a place of wholeness, so we could more effectively heal the world.”

Healing Quotes from Kelly Turner

“Healing simply means bringing more purpose, happiness, and healthy behaviors into your life, which, in my opinion, are beautiful things to begin right now, regardless of how much time we each have left to live.”

Approach healing from a different perspective, where taking control of your healing is not only considered good but is actually essential for the healing process.”

recovery quote

The body has an innate, intuitive knowledge about what it needs in order to heal, and it can often also let you know why it got sick in the first place.”

“Regardless of which level the blockage is on, however, the overarching goal is still the same: identify the blockage, figure out where it came from, and release it fully.”

“When the thinking mind stops and spiritual energy begins to flow through you, a whole host of healthy changes occur in your physical body.”

Healing Quotes from Nick Ortner

“You must find a way to lower your stress levels, process your negative emotions, let go of the past, and stop repeating negative patterns. Only from there can you create the life you’ve truly dreamed of.”

“When you change your perspective, often your feelings, reactions, and the situation itself naturally change, too—most of the time for the better.”

healing quotes

“As you discover, neutralize, and eliminate the emotional baggage from your specific events, you will have less and less internal conflict in your system. Less internal conflict translates into a higher level of personal peace and less emotional and physical suffering.”

Healing Quotes from Alexander Loyd

“We believe that the energy frequency of pure love will heal anything—and that it may be the only power that will.

“The destructive feelings and beliefs we experience come from our memories. The only way they can heal is if the memory they come from heals. This doesn’t mean you don’t have the memory anymore; you do, it’s just not destructive anymore.”

sickness healing quotes

“The trigger for illness and disease in the body is always a wrong belief and, conversely, that once we believe the truth and keep believing the truth, our cells become impervious to illness and disease.”

“Tremendous power is inside you today and it can be constructive or destructive. It can block your goals, relationships and create illness and disease. Or it can empower you to fantastic accomplishments, wonderful relationships, and tremendous health. You have all the tools and resources you need to achieve the results. You just need to release that power.”

Healing Quotes from Henry Grayson

“Belief in our own powerlessness is just as much a factor in mental disorders as physical illnesses. What is the underlying dynamic in depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, traumas, addictions, and phobias? It is the feeling of powerlessness and our ineffective ways of recognizing our intrinsic power to deal with it.”

“Remember, by changing your reality about yourself and the world – and especially where the power lies – you too can begin to take steps to do self-healing, emotionally, mentally, and physically.”

recovery quote

The true purpose of healing is to use the body to help us heal the mind that “needed” the body to be sick – and to become aware of our True Self identity, which is part of All That Is, and that possesses enormous power of health, healing, and happiness.”

Healing Quotes from Gary Zukav

“Love is the energy of the soul. Love is what heals the personality. There is nothing that cannot be healed by love. There is nothing but love.”

The body needs rest, and it needs care, but behind every aspect of the health or illness of the body is the energy of the soul.”

“The journey to wholeness requires that you look honestly, openly and with courage into yourself.”

“You cannot begin the work of releasing an addiction until you can acknowledge that you are addicted.”

“When you struggle with an addiction, you deal directly with the healing of your soul.”

“Try to realize, and truly realize, that what stands between you and a different life are matters of responsible choice.”

healing quotes

“Personalities in interaction are souls that are seeking to heal.”

“When you interact with another, an illusion is part of this dynamic. This illusion allows each soul to perceive what it needs to understand in order to heal.”

Healing Quotes from Saki Santorelli

“Our willingness to see, to hold ourselves closely just as we are, while being this way with another, is a revealing and deeply healing expression of care. An embodiment of compassion. Whether offering or seeking help, we are all wounded and we are all whole.”

“Despite the embodied evidence of stress, illness, pain, or suffering in another, maybe our essential work is to meet another within this crucible of temporal conditions while simultaneously relating to them as nothing less than a localized embodiment of the divine. Our willingness to relate with another in this way is fundamentally healing.”

recovery quote

“Each of us is asked to go down into this underworld, into the darkness, to face our fears, to acknowledge and “own” all aspects of self, and in this way to be renewed.”

‘If we refuse this journey, we may never play the music of our own lives. We might never sing the song that is only ours to sing. What a tragedy would this be. For the world needs your tune, remains incomplete without it, and waits, endlessly patient, for your voicing of your song.”

Healing Quotes from Rumi

As a tribute to what I consider my personal saving grace during times of healing, I’ve included some of my favorite lines from Rumi’s poetry book, The Essential compilation.

“These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.”

The cure for pain is in the pain.”

“Where there is pain, the cure will come.”

“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.”

“If you desire healing, let yourself fall ill. Let yourself fall ill.”

“Don’t turn your head. Keep looking at the bandaged place. That’s where the Light enters you.”

healing quotes

You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.

“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”

Love is the cure, for your pain will keep giving birth for more pain until your eyes constantly exhale love as effortlessly as your body yields its scent.”

“I will soothe you and heal you. I will bring you roses. I too have been covered with thorns.”

“This world is in deep trouble, from top to bottom. But it can be swiftly healed by the balm of love.”

sickness healing quotes

Again, thank you for sharing this journey with me. We’re in this together.

I’m leaving you with these lines from my own poetry collection, One Whole Naked Me.

Healing is a journey.
It’s not always about the destination,
but the whole experience.

It’s about the people you meet,
how their stories touched your life
and how yours touched theirs.

And in the end,
what’s going to matter most
is not how you made yourself better,
but how the world became a better place
through you.
