Checkin' Perceptions with Guest Lawson Patterson
  The word "healing" when it comes to Mental Health, is a bit misleading to me. Especially if you look at in terms of our physical health. We think of a wound being smoothed over. We think, two pieces being mended back together. I've started to look at healing differently now. I look at my growth and my healing as one thing. If I don't keep opening up I'm not growing, and if I am not growing I am not healing. The more closed off to anything I am, the more I choose to form walls and boxes around me and my thinking. We might think particular boxes or walls are small and insignificant. They are not. However, we walk our path with opening those spaces and claiming them. Thats what I talked about in this week's episode with Spiritualist, Medium and Healer Lawson Patterson.
