The Alchemy Within: Unveiling the 4 Dimensions of Your Healing Journey

Updated: Jan 22

The 4 MUSTS of Holistic Healing

Embarking on a journey of self-improvement and self-discovery involves more than just addressing individual aspects of well-being. In fact there are four different dimensions of healing, and the more you can integrate all four, the more holistic and complete your healing will be.

In fact, to achieve true healing, it's essential to recognize the interconnectedness of all four dimensions of healing.

In this blog post, we'll delve into the significance of each dimension and explore how they collectively contribute to a holistic and transformative healing experience.

The Four Dimensions of a Successful Healing Journey

Let's go through each one, why they are needed, and how they are interweave together.


The foundation of any healing journey begins with physical well-being.

This dimension includes:

  • Exercise

  • Diet

  • Sleep

  • Going in Nature

  • Alchemy Breathwork

A healthy body provides the necessary support for the mind and emotions to thrive.

Engaging in regular exercise, maintaining a balanced diet, and ensuring adequate sleep are fundamental aspects of physical healing.

Exercise, whether it's strength training or cardiovascular activities, not only strengthens the body but also releases endorphins, contributing to mental well-being.

Getting out in nature is a MUST. Nature is SO healing on all the levels we are going to talk about today, but first you have to physically get out there…

The earth emits a frequency that is healing and that if we are out there, especially barefoot, we can calibrate to it for our own healing.

☀️ Sunlight allows us to take in healing codes, it also helps us sleep at night.  It's not about extremes but creating sustainable habits that support your overall well-being.

Imagine your body as a garden... For it to bloom, it needs proper soil and sunlight. And this isn't just about weight loss; it's about vitality, strength, and resilience.

The most important part of this healing pillar is to listen to what your body needs and provide it.

This can include:

  • Knowing what foods your body reacts to in positive and negative ways.

  • Finding an exercise routine that resonates with you and knowing this could change weekly or even daily.

  • Feeling into if your body needs extra sleep.

Emotional healing is a transformative process that involves acknowledging and expressing feelings.

Embracing emotions, both positive and negative, allows for authentic self-expression.

Our emotions are like colors on a palette, painting the canvas of our lives.🌈Suppressing them or letting them run wild can disrupt the masterpiece.

Emotional healing is about:

  1. Acknowledging

  2. Processing, and

  3. Releasing

This ensures nothing gets stuck! Emotions are produced in the body and if we are not listening to them and releasing, then they get stuck in our body… and that’s what creates imbalance and disease.

Modalities to assist with emotional healing

There are SO many modalities for this, and We are going to be eventually diving DEEP into each of these but for now, if you want to get started some things you can do is:

  • Space: Give yourself quiet space to actually feel your emotions

  • Journalling: Writing about thoughts and feelings can be a therapeutic practice, providing clarity and a release valve for emotions.

  • Therapy: Sessions with a therapist can provide a safe space for exploring and processing emotions.

  • Mindfulness Meditation: Practices that focus on the present moment, such as mindfulness meditation, help individuals observe and accept their emotions without judgment.

  • Loving-Kindness Meditation: A form of meditation that cultivates feelings of compassion and love towards oneself and others.

  • Art Therapy: Using various art forms to express and explore emotions, promoting self-discovery and healing.

  • Music Therapy: Engaging with music to facilitate emotional expression and processing.

  • Peer Support: Sharing experiences with others who have faced similar challenges can provide a sense of community and validation.

Emotional well-being acts as a bridge, connecting the physical and mental dimensions of healing, creating a more integrated and balanced self.


Now, let's dive into Mental Healing. 🧠 Our thoughts are powerful architects of our reality. Have you ever noticed how negative thoughts can manifest physically?

Mental healing involves rewiring those neural pathways, cultivating positivity, and embracing a growth mindset.

Mental Healing:

  • Supports our emotional healing

  • Helps us release anger that has been brewing in us

  • Helps with self-forgiveness and forgiving others, and

  • Clears the mind so we can focus on what matters to us

Modalities to assist with mental and mindset healing

  • Gratitude Practices: Cultivating gratitude by focusing on positive aspects of life to shift mindset and improve overall well-being.

  • Strengths-Based Approaches: Identifying and leveraging personal strengths to build a positive mindset.

  • Subliminals: Affirmations hidden under healing-frequency music in order to bypass the logical mind and help rewire your subconscious mind to abolish self-sabotaging patterns, thoughts, and actions.

  • Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT): Rewire your mind at the speed of thought! This is a mimetic therapy and is one of the fastest ways to abolish self sabotage, grief, and anxiety.

These all help challenge limiting beliefs and are potent tools in this healing dimension. When you stay curious about your thoughts without judgment you can change your thoughts, and when you change your thoughts you can literally change your life.


✨ Picture your body as an energy field. We have subtle energies within and around the body. Disruptions in this field can lead to physical and emotional issues and balancing these energies we can experience an expansive and harmonious state of being.

It can open up your chakras so energy flows and stuck emotions are being cleared out. It helps you to attune to your intuition, which has been the NUMBER ONE DRIVER IN MY PERSONAL HEALING JOURNEY

Benefits of energetic healing include:

  • Stress reduction

  • Pain management

  • Strengthened intuition

  • Feeling grounded & connected to self

  • Spiritual growth

  • Increase vitality

Here are some commonly utilized techniques:

  • Energy Healing / Reiki: Where practitioners channel universal life force energy to the recipient through light touch or hands hovering above the body. This process activates your body into healing itself.

  • Crystal Healing: Crystals possess unique energetic properties that can influence the body's energy field. Placing crystals on specific energy centers or wearing them as jewelry can cleanse, balance, and amplify energy.

  • Sound Healing: Sound, in the form of tones or vibrations, is used to resonate with the body's energy frequencies. Instruments like singing bowls, tuning forks, or even the human voice can be employed to promote healing and balance.


The four dimensions of healing are intricately connected, each influencing and being influenced by the others. Holistic wellness involves recognizing these interconnections and adopting integrated approaches that address physical, mental, emotional, and energetic aspects.

By embracing this holistic perspective, individuals can embark on a more profound and transformative journey towards sustained well-being.

Imagine how meditation can calm your mind, bringing clarity to your thoughts, and, in turn, positively affecting your emotions. It's a harmonious dance where each element supports and enhances the others.

For me, it has changed how I interact with my children… it allows me to settle into a space where I can direct my kids and respond to my kids in a very emotionally-regulated way, instead of react and overact.

00:01:35,520 but also the four musts on your healing journey. First, let me quickly introduce this podcast and who I am because this is indeed the first episode. I'm so excited. I'm Caitlin Strempel. I'm an ex-burned-out marketing agency owner

00:01:51,120 who spent seven years building a wildly successful business, but a business that was not aligned with my life's work and my soul's calling. It was built, I would say, from a place of ego and from what others just

wanted for me.

00:02:07,360 And it took severe burnout. It took two very life-altering and life threatening events with my children. I don't mean disease and a lot more for me to finally realize my life was totally out of whack and it was taking a toll on my health and my lifestyle and who I was.

00:02:25,200 And for those of you who are obsessed with all things astrological and celestial, I am a three, five emotional, manny, Jen, a manifesting generator in human design and my big three are Areas, Libra, and Gemini.

00:02:40,480 So through this podcast, we'll embark on a fascinating exploration of how healing our minds and our emotions and our spirit can significantly impact our overall frequency, leading to physical and non-physical transformation. I am passionate about sharing insights that empower you,

00:03:00,240 yourself, to break free from the shackles of disease, the shackles of whatever's keeping you down, whether it's shedding stubborn weight, alleviating burnout, finding your purpose or overcoming various pains and ailments in your body, in your mind, in your spirit. But this podcast isn't just about

00:03:21,440 theories and concepts. It's about real lived experiences. I want to share with you my personal journey of healing. I battle infertility, PCOS, eczema, autoimmune disease, depression, and I've cleared 95% of all

that away. So through this podcast, I'll unveil and I'll unravel these layers of my own

00:03:44,880 healing process, providing you with a roadmap and for ideas for your own transformative journey. Because this really is tapping into your intuition and figuring out what is best for you, what feels good for you to move forward with. It's incredible how healing the mind and emotions

00:04:05,040 can have a ripple effect on our physical well-being. I've witnessed first hand the profound changes that occur when we address the root causes of our struggles, not just put on that band aid. And as we navigate through these episodes, you'll discover practical tools, ancient wisdom

00:04:23,120 and modern insights that can truly catalyze your own healing journey. And so I invite you to join me every other week as we dive into so-called conversations, interviews, and guided meditations. Awakened healing is more than just a podcast. It's a sanctuary for those seeking a holistic approach

00:04:45,520 to well-being. We're mind, body and soul dance harmoniously in this symphony of life. I know for me, I, when I was first on my healing journey, I felt that my body had failed me, that the medical field had failed me, that everything had failed me. And I really had to pick myself up,

00:05:04,320 piece by piece and figure this out. And so if that's what you're down for, let's walk together and come join me on this journey. Honestly, whatever you have questions on, if there's something, if there are topics that you want to hear about, check the show notes, reach out, we are here to listen to you

00:05:24,320 and to provide you with what you're looking for to help you on your journey. All right, so let's get into the four musts on your own healing journey. I'm going to go through each one, explain why they are needed

and how they interweave together because they do. And for me personally, and for most of my

00:05:42,400 clients, it takes all four categories to transform it, to have a deeply transformative life and experience in your healing. All right, so let's start with the foundation. Number one is physical healing. This is about nourishing your body with the right fuel and movement. Movement is essential. So imagine

00:06:05,280 a garden, you know, your body is a garden to bloom. It needs proper soil. It needs proper sunlight. Similarly, your body thrives with balanced nutrition and exercise. And this just isn't about weight loss. It's about

vitality, strength, resilience, sleep is a big part of this.

00:06:24,720 Asking and listening to what your physical body needs is a part of this too. And you should be doing that every day. You know, for instance, knowing what foods your body reacts to in a positive and negative way

is really important. Finding an exercise routine that resonates with you,

00:06:42,240 getting out in nature. Nature is so healing on all of these levels that we're going to talk about today. But first, you have to physically get out there. The earth emit a frequency that is healing and if we are out there

barefoot, we can calibrate. We can calibrate to that frequency for our own healing.

00:07:01,440 Sunlight allows us to take in healing codes. It also helps us sleep at night. So you know, it's not about these extreme things, but it's about creating sustainable habits that support your overall well-being. And

you know, if you're dealing with self-betrayal, it helps you kind of build up

00:07:20,480 that self-trust again. All right, number two, emotional healing. Our emotions are like colors on a palette. Painting the canvas of our lives. We need all of the colors. They are all good. You know, we don't want

to suppress them. We also don't want them to, you know, run wild because that can disrupt,

00:07:39,280 that can bleed out the masterpiece. Emotional healing is about acknowledging, processing and releasing. So nothing gets stuck. Emotions are produced in the body. And if, you know, we are not listening to them and releasing them and asking them, you know, what the lesson is you're supposed to learn,

00:08:01,680 they do get stuck in their body. And that creates imbalance and disease. You know, and they're for this, for emotional healing, there are so many modalities out there. And we're going to dive deep into all of the most transformative ones on this podcast. You know, but for now, if you want something now to

00:08:20,640 get started is just to make sure that you are allowing yourself and giving yourself space to feel the emotions. And to give yourself space on this journey, so many times we wake up, we sit our alarm for the last

second, then we get up. We're rushing around. We're stuffing food

00:08:39,680 in our face. We're running out to work. You know, there is no space. There's no time. You know, we come home and again, we step our face, maybe we work out. We put kids to bed and then we sit in front of the TV. That does not, that is not space, you know, because it is a way of just numbing out. We need to

00:08:58,080 make sure that we are turning inward and feeling into those edges, feeling into those emotions so we can release them. The third pillar here is mental healing. Our thoughts are powerful architects of our reality. And if you've ever noticed how negative thoughts can manifest physically, you know, there,

00:09:19,840 I swear, the people that I know in my life, there's a few that I have that I

won't mention, but I fully believe that their situation is made worse

because they are only looking at the negative and feeling that life is just

steamrolling them instead of taking in that lesson and looking for

00:09:44,000 the little glimmers of positivity. Mental healing literally physically rewires our neural pathways and it helps cultivate possibility and positivity and if we embrace a growth mindset, everything else follows behind that. It also supports our emotional healing. It helps us release

00:10:08,000 anger that's been brewing in us or other emotions and it helps with self-forgiveness and forgiving others. It clears the mind so we can focus on what matters to us. A great example of what I been taught by my

mentor is, you know, if you're going in for brain surgery, do you want the surgeon

00:10:27,840 to be thinking about a fight that he had with his or her spouse the night before or do you want his brain and mind clear and focused to work on you? The same goes with you. Do you want a clear mind when you are going in and running your business or going into your work or interacting with your

00:10:48,000 partner and your children? You know, that stuff really matters. My favorite modality here is RRT Rapid Resolution Therapy. This is a healing that I have healed myself with. I also use in my healing sessions with my clients. It is fast, it is life changing. We'll have a whole topic about that

00:11:08,800 in an episode but look into it. It is incredible if you are looking to rewire your mind. Affirmations are great. I don't fully love them unless they're hidden under subliminals because it can bypass your logical mind.

Mindfulness practices are really good. Just challenging your limiting

00:11:27,760 beliefs can be really potent tools in this area and it's about staying curious about your thoughts without judgment. And when you can do that, you can change your thoughts. When you can change your

thoughts, you can literally change your life. So the fourth one, last but not least, energetic healing.

00:11:45,440 Picture your body as an energy field. Disruptions in this field can lead to physical and emotional issues. Balancing your energy involves practices like meditation, breaking other energy healings. Again, spending time in nature. Nature is everything. We are nature. We forget that. So

00:12:08,320 for us to be our own nature is so healing. Energy healing can open up your chakras. So energy can flow. It helps clear out your aura which attracts people and experiences and things to you. Everything you do is

magnetizing something to you. Are you magnetizing the not so great stuff or are you magnetizing

00:12:29,760 the abundance? So energy is flowing. Things are moving. Emotions are being cleared out when we do this. It helps you also attune to your intuition. Intuition has been the number one driver in my personal healing journey. I am dead set and will die on the hill that everybody should focus

00:12:52,320 on really strengthening their intuition. It's therefore a purpose. It's helped to survive when the caveman days. Now it's still here, but everything else or logic mind and all the outside external factors have

really disconnected us from our intuition. Connect that and you're off to a great start.

00:13:11,280 So just imagine how meditation can calm your mind, how this energy healing can bring clarity to your thoughts and in turn positively affect your emotions. This is all a harmonious dance where each element

supports and enhances the others. And if one is off, the restaurant. If your

00:13:31,440 mind says it's not there, everything else follows. If energetically you're not there, if your shockers are stuck, you will see the physical ailments in that. And for me personally, all this has changed my healing of all the things that I talked about before, my relationship, how I interact with my

00:13:51,280 children, how I give and receive compliments and money. And it allows me just to settle into a place where I can direct my kids and respond to my kids and respond to life in a very emotionally aligned and regulated

way instead of reacting and overreacting. And I've from these four pillars,

00:14:16,320 I've truly found an inner peace in me and a feeling of inner completion. So for your homework or you know, your ritual, I would sit down with the journal and go over these four categories. See what you're doing really well. See maybe, you know, there's one thing in each that you can

00:14:35,120 improve. Start with one. Do it every day, settle on, so you do it until it becomes a habit. Then move on to the next one. These baby steps, if you take baby steps every day for the next three years, even just year, I

promise you you will look back at the end of 2024 and not recognize yourself.

00:14:53,520 All right, that is it for today. Again, I am Caitlin. I am honored to be your guide on this path to awaken healing. Make sure you subscribe and share. And if you're desiring to go deeper in any of this, check out the show notes for my awakened healing hub with tools to help you along
