Healing Your Fears and Trauma at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers

5 Ways to Confront and Heal Your Inner Demons

By Jennifer McDougall

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.” – August Wilson

Facing your inner demons takes great courage. Bringing forth all of those memories, fears, pain, regrets, and causes for your current conditions, can cause a range of many emotions. Many of us have pain from the past and fears we live with every day that often times get suppressed as a way to ignore them rather than acknowledging them. If you are ready to heal your inner demons and overcome the blockage that has been holding you back from living your best life, this article is perfect for you.

Through professional therapy and compassionate care that is tailored just for you and your specific needs, it is possible to overcome your innermost darkness and experience true freedom.

Helpful tips to heal your inner demons:

  1. Address the core issues and unresolved events from the past with a therapist

  2. Practice letting go through meditation, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and other holistic treatment methods such as the ones offered at Passages Rehab

  3. Develop a strong self-care routine that you stick to on a daily basis (time alone, quality time with friends and family, massage, hair & nail care, facials, reading, writing, painting, disconnecting from technology & social media, healthy dieting etc.)

  4. Forgive yourself and others from previous events by telling them personally or just quietly saying the words to yourself in your own privacy

  5.  Bring your fears, pain, trauma, and worries to surface– be real with how you feel as you experience a vast range of different emotions as you heal through this difficult yet courageous process

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.” – Eckhart Tolle
