A New Baseline
In Reorganizational Healing (ROH), it is essential that individuals have mechanisms by which they can have an awareness of the present time; how they drop to a lower level of functioning, behavior, and perception in the face of disease, problems, or life stressors; and what they can do to function at a ‘‘higher level,’’ a new baseline of well-being, in spite of life’s challenges. In this context, reorganization relates to the increasing ability to thrive in the face of greater demands in every domain (physical, biologic, emotional, mental, spiritual, social, and cultural).
This ability to thrive in every aspect of life is considered a new measure of well-being and function. Reorganization implies that the system functions at a higher level of complexity. This increase in the baseline level of organization of a system allows for enhanced utilization of energy, adaptability, and the development of new attractors thereby facilitating an emerging state of stability of the system in spite of a greater range and intensity of perturbations in the environment.
Increased complexity of the living system allows for new energetic strategies, and enables the system to remain far from equilibrium. As a model of transformational change, ROH is consistent with theories based on the chaotic and quantum nature of behavior change and life transitions. Successful reorganization at a higher baseline can be identified because the individual reaches a new level of gratitude, love, and connection (subjective, somatic, relational, and social).
