A little over a year ago I had an awakening. I realized I had the power to calm and heal my mind, even if I couldn't control what was happening to my body. I've talked about this before in different ways including recognizing sources of healing around us, how mindfulness helped me heal, and mindfulness and mobile apps. Mindfulness is a set of skills for healing, intuition, insight, calmness, focus, resilience and hope that you can develop to counter the stresses that chronic illness brings. As Dr. Berkelhammer put it, you can literally "train your mind to promote healing".
