8 Secrets for Wellbeing Revealed in the HEAL Documentary
As soon as Kelly Noonan Gores learned the science of epigeneticis, showing we are not victims of our genes, she wanted to share that message with the world. She began putting all of her lessons in meditation, yoga, self-help, bodywork, and healing together to tell the story of how the body, mind, and spirit could heal. With her background in film, she felt the best way to do this was make a documentary.
#1. – Share Your Healing Story
Kelly believes that one of the greatest aspects of HEAL is the healing stories and testimonials that give viewers hope. Sharing stories like this is a great way to open people’s minds and take the fear out of taking that next step. Films are a great vehicle for sharing rich stories in this way. Remember to share your stories with friends, loved ones and in your community as well! Or ask people to share their story of healing with you. We sometimes forget how much one person can inspire and influence another just by sharing what worked for them.
#2. – Once You Start Looking, the Answers Will Come
Even if it seems like the deck is stacked against you, we have great news from science: your genetics are only 5% of your health, which means you have 95% of your health in your own hands.
#3. – Being Willing to Be Vulnerable Is Essential
Kelly made the point that being vulnerable is not weak. It takes strength to be vulnerable. Many of the patients who shared their stories in HEAL were willing to be vulnerable and share their hopes, fears, struggles and wins on camera. Interestingly, those of us who’ve healed from chronic or serious conditions know one thing for sure: healing is a surrender and when you surrender, there is huge vulnerability. It’s this surrender that allows even deeper insights, shifts and transformations. I’ve had some of my deepest healing moments at times when I was on my knees. This is the celebration of the strength of the human spirit and the resilience of the body.
#4. – Find Out What You Came Here To Do
When asked if there were times she was scared as she reached for her big dream of filming HEAL, Kelly said absolutely there were! What got her through the hard and scary times was her passion for this work. She recommends that we all think about what we’re passionate about – what gets you excited or what could you talk about for hours? When you’re passionate about something, it helps you bust through the roadblocks that often get in the way of any big project. In Native American medicine, there’s a focus on finding out what you came here to do – your sacred path. The belief is that if one becomes ill, we must look at a variety of aspects, including whether there are unfulfilled desires of the soul. If you’re living what you feel is a mundane life and not according to what you came here to do, symptoms may show up as a way to get you to re-evaluate your life. Finding out what you truly love to do and having courage to focus on that can be incredibly healing!
#5. – Take Time For Yourself
These days, we are becoming more and more aware that healing is not found in taking a pill and going about our days. If you have a chronic condition, healing often requires taking time for yourself. It’s almost as if life wants us to get still, slow down and re-evaluate how we’re approaching life. So that we can be more discerning about whether our lives are being lived in alignment with our heart’s desire. This takes time. And it’s the kind of time that is incredibly worth it because you have the opportunity to find out how to truly nourish yourself and create the kind of life that feels satisfying, joyful and fulfilling. Most of the time, we are rushing from one obligation to the next, without thinking about what we really want. Or figuring we’ll get to the good stuff once all the work is done. Part of healing actually requires us to stop the presses and re-evaluate how we’re living our lives. If you’re willing to do this, you may find that your healing is actually a life transformation.
#6. – Listen to Your Body and Intuition
You live in your body and you know how it feels. You also know what you feel drawn to and what you don’t. It’s important to trust this on your healing journey. Some people will lean toward allopathic treatments and others are much more interested in complementary health. Still others will blend the two. Regardless of which path you take, always trust your body and your intuition. If something doesn’t feel right to you, or you are prompted for a second opinion or a completely different path than the one recommended, trust yourself. Trusting your body and your intuition is part of the healing process.
#7. – Ask For Help
If you have a big goal or dream, tell people about it. Ask for help! When Kelly wanted to make HEAL, she asked Salima to introduce her to Deepak Chopra. Deepak was the first person to say yes to the film and everything started flowing from there. Kelly also described how getting a no from someone could open doors as well. For example, she asked Dr. Christiane Northrup to be in the film and when Dr. Northrup said she was not available, she gave Kelly 3 other contacts who were amazing for HEAL. All of them said yes! You never know what will show up if you are willing to ask. Remember, most people love to offer support, advice, resources, and connections!
#8. – Take Time to Be In Community
At the end of HEAL, there are often discussions with the viewing community. Kelly shared that this was one of the great aspects of the film because it allows the community to share their own stories and responses to the film. These dialogues have prompted new insights and connections. Many people have received inspiration and guidance in these discussions, so they have been an important part of the screenings.
