HP means Higher Power like God or Buddha or Mohammad or whomever you believe in if you believe in anything at all. I know this because I am a member of Alanon (support group for loved ones of alcoholics) and one of the step in both AA and Alanon the 2nd and 3rd steps are these:
2.Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God or our Higher Power as we understood Him/Her.
your HP could anything, such as God or as obscure as a coffee mug or tree or whatever.
MY HP personally is God.
Hope this helps

Question, in 'Beyond telling their story, but always aware they have created their own healing with HP' what does HP mean?
HP means Higher Power like God,Buddha,mohammad whomever you choose.
Also your HP or Higher power does not have to be religious in nature your HP can be anyone or anything that you want that you are comfortable with

I don't think there is a time frame that any of us can put on our healing process. It all comes to us at our own pace. Its like the previous poster said...maybe wanting it is the first step. Then, maybe pick a category or two from the list to work on.
You are not alone...

I promise that everyone else will get there. It take a lot of work, and a lot of pain, but it's very possible!

(I am big NASCAR and Jeff Gordon fan...bring on the boo's LoL!)
It reminded me of the encouragement chart that Jeff Gordon had when he first started driving in the Cup Series:
From Rookie to Upstart
From Upstart to Winner
From Winner to Champion
From Champion to Dominance (I think that was what Champion was to turn in to)
I think it a motivation to see how you can get from one to another. And it kinda gives you a path to get there!
Thank you for sharing that!
