On this planet, we all endure what we at the Lightning Path call a Toxic Socialization process. This toxic socialization process damages our physical unit (our body and mind), causes extensive emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual trauma, and undermines our ability to manifest our full human potential, and connect with our highest consciousness.
At the LP we feel that most healing modalities, built as they are on a materialist paradigm, are inadequate and insufficient, often functioning more as band-aid treatment then real healing solutions. We also believe if the individual is going to heal from the damage, they must take control of their own healing process.
As a step towards shifting the paradigm and encouraging authentic healing. the LP offers the HEALING. framework. The HEALING framework is a framework that helps you, and therapeutic professionals helping you, conceptualize and map out the healing process. Withing the framework, healing involves getting help when you need it, establishing right environment so you have a safe place to heal, exploring and resolving addictions, and overcoming our socialized tendency to lie to ourselves about reality so we can engage in the necessary introspection that will help us protect ourselves, meet our needs, and put ourselves in growth mode so we can connect with our highest consciousness and reach our full human potential.
