    The process of healing begins from within. Even before the cast is set on our broken
    bones, our bones begin to knit themselves back together. Just as there are physical laws
    that affect the healing of our bodies, there are laws that affect the healing of our minds.
    We have seen how our intellects can override some powerful instinctual forces of our
    organisms.
    Sometimes, traumatized individuals have an investment in being ill and may form a kind
    of attachment to their symptoms. There are innumerable reasons (both physiological and
    psychological) to explain why this attachment occurs. I don't think it's necessary to go
    into detail on this subject. The important thing to keep in mind is that we can only heal to
    the degree that we can become unattached from these symptoms. It is almost as if they
    become entities unto themselves through the power we give them. We need to release
    them from our minds and hearts along with the energy that is locked in our nervous
    systems.
