I need healing.
More and more of us are reaching the point where we give up and scream, I need healing. More often than not those of us ready to humble ourselves and make the I need healing statement, are looking for emotional healing. Mental health services across the developed world have been in steep decline for several decades. Whilst at the same time mental ill health in that same developed world continues to grow at alarming rates. Most of us shouting out I need healing have recognized we are feeling emotional pain.

The spirit is that important but also largely ignored in a modern gadget led world. Could this be the reason the worlds mental health has never been in a worse state. Have we worked out why so many of us are shouting out I need healing? I think we might be on to something!
