How can you permanently heal your wounds? I journal, meditate, listen to podcasts, burn incense and sage, etc. Answer : Woundology means you use your wounds — you cling to your wounds. The energy comes out of your system, your cell system.
Beware of Woundology
Wow, this is sooooooo important!
We all suffer at times. Regrettably, there are those who use the authenticity of their suffering as an excuse to not heal. But they are not healing. They have redefined their lives around their wounds and the process of accepting them. They are not working to get beyond their wounds. In fact, they are stuck in their wounds. Indeed, the last thing that many who are wounded, grieving, or ill are seeking is the full recovery of their health. Pain has its privileges. Those who adopt a victim mentality may use their wounds to manipulate and control situations and people; after all, suffering can be a convenient excuse for dodging responsibilities. Others discover that, after a lifetime of attending to others, they relish being attended to.

By the way, I strongly recommend following the youtube trai of the above link to listen to all eight lectures. That will give you a really complete picture. Woundology is the tendency to insistently hold on to old traumas.
It has significant relevance to many people who are trying to recover and heal from traumatic work experiences, including bullying, mobbing, and violence. Myss is a bestselling writer on human consciousness and an energy medicine practitioner. Her work is commonly categorized as New Age, spiritual, or alternative, which may cause some people to be immediately attentive and others to be immediately dismissive. Personally, I find myself open to a variety of healing modalities, because what works for one may not work for another, and vice versa. In any event, Myss writes wisely about her encounters with good, caring, compassionate people who nevertheless could not get beyond wanting to be identified with, and to live in, their emotional wounds. She calls this state one of woundology. She further explains:. They are striving to confront their wounds, valiantly working to bring meaning to terrible past experiences and traumas, and exercising compassionate understanding of others who share their wounds.
