Feel Better With Healing Words of Encouragement and Strength

Thank you for sharing!

Today I’m sharing my favorite quotes and words of encouragement for healing. Whether you’re looking for the right words to uplift a friend who’s down, or need to self-heal, these healing words will help.

You should take a moment now to honor yourself for being focused on healing! All of these quotes focus on soothing your emotions, so you can shift away from victim mode and move toward well being.

No matter what you’re healing from, all the real work begins inside your mind. Law of attraction is going to bring you experiences that match your dominant thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. So the sooner you start reaching for ways to soothe yourself, the more quickly you’ll heal.

How Do Words Heal Us?

We all know that words don’t teach – only life experience can do that. But words are incredibly powerful because everything you say has a vibrational frequency. Positive words filled with love and encouragement vibrate much higher than words that evoke sadness and discouragement.

When life throws you challenges, your vibrational frequency gets dragged down. As a result, you feel negative emotion. While of course this is perfectly natural and normal, you eventually need to pull yourself up the emotional scale, so you can begin to thrive again. That’s where spiritual words of encouragement can support you.

All of the quotes below are high vibe and handpicked to help raise your vibration, which is the first step in healing your body, mind, and spirit. I’m also including a video so you can read through the quotes while listening to soothing music.

Grow Stronger By Healing Your Solar Plexus Chakra

The empowering quotes above will help to re-empower you, and bring healing to your solar plexus. Your sense of strength and personal power live in your solar plexus chakra. When a situation tests your courage or makes you doubt your abilities, this energy center can come out of balance. The result is often feelings of anxiety and self doubt.

Heart Healing During Hard Times

When life comes at me hard, I always find it soothing to read quotes that put things back into perspective. I promise, you can get through anything by reaching for the best available thought in each moment.

Sometimes I think we overcomplicate the process of healing. It really is all about allowing yourself to follow those impulses you get that lead you toward feeling relief. The healing process takes time, so try not to put too much pressure on yourself to 100% better right away.

Your soul knows the quickest way back to feeling whole again. All you need to do is follow your guidance, one step at a time.

If you’re working toward heart healing or forgiveness, here are a couple additional resources that will help:
