What’s up, ladies!
So your doctor told you that you’ll never heal, that you’ll always be sick with this thing and always be on this medication, and you’re asking, “Is that true?”
Well, I don’t know, but I do know this: I have been told that I would not heal from multiple diseases and illnesses. I am talking multiple illnesses and multiple chronic symptoms that went on for 20 years!
It doesn’t really matter the specific things I’ve overcome. What matters is how I went about it.
I have faith in food. I have faith in my ability to heal.
Because I believe food will heal me if I take the steps to eat the right food. I eat clean foods and did research to find out what serves me best. And then checked in with my body. So far it’s worked for me.
Granted, it’s not just food, sometimes lifestyle change is in order and sometimes a massive overhaul of my lifestyle is in order. Other times, I just need to switch up how I work or just get enough sleep.
There are numerous things at play in your life that create the illness, the disease, the symptoms or whatever else you face – it’s entirely unique to you. But I believe that we can heal if we believe we can heal.
There’s a saying from Wayne Dyer, “If you change the way look at things, the things you look at change.” I have found that to be true in my own life and certainly in my own healing.
I know it may sound a bit out there, but it’s true. There are so many examples of miraculous healing that stems from what we believe is possible.
Healing can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you tell yourself that something will happen often enough, it will eventually happen… whether it is negative or positive. For example, you are at a batting cage and you are swinging at the ball with the bat. If you are looking at the ball and believe you are going to miss it, then you will miss it because you are convincing yourself that you are not good at this that you can’t do it. So the ball flies and you go to swing… you miss it.
You’re disappointed. But what did you expect? You told yourself that would happen.
Focus your attention on what it is that you WANT to happen in your life. Believe you can get better and do better. Believe you can heal. It does not mean that you will not have challenges along the way, but you’ll be much happier with the end result. If you believe that you can heal, you will take action that aligns with that goal.
So, if I believe that I am fit. I am healthy. I am strong. I am gorgeous. Guess what? The world will respond to me that way. It also inspires me to wake up each day with purpose.
I get up each morning, go to meditation, go to work and make good food choices because I know that I Am fit, strong, healthy and gorgeous.
And I’m not giving you lip service. This is how I live my life. I get up in the morning, meet my meditation buddy at 5:30 am. I hit the gym (or hit it in the evening after work). I come home and get dressed. I get camera ready and then go to work doing work that I love.
My life was not always like this.
I used to be depressed, overweight, and constantly feel inferior. I was one of the most insecure people you’d ever meet but I had this really good mask on of “fake confidence.”
Eventually, all of that changed.
It took a lot of work, patience, solitude and time. I had to LOOK at my fears and insecurities straight on. I had to face what was happening inside of me and stop focusing, competing with, or trying to “prove myself” to what was outside of me.
It wasn’t easy and I’m still doing work like this every day.
For a long time, I only focused that I believed that I could heal, but I did not believe that I was good enough. I did not believe I was smart enough.
I felt fat, ugly, unattractive and depressed. I felt like it was too “late for me” and that I had “missed the boat” on so many opportunities in life. When my thinking changed, my whole world changed.
If we want to heal, we have to stop running, sit still, and look at what’s happening inside of us. We are responsible for what we see. Our perceptions are our own. Our assumptions are our own. And the world we see is a figment of our own imaginations and expectations.
If you choose to blame and see yourself as a victim of people or circumstance, you have relinquished yourself to something outside your control. It seems like an easier thing… if we blame other people then it’s “not our fault” and there’s “nothing we can do to change it.” But that’s lying to ourselves. Because what we see is OUR perception, it’s not fact, and it is subject to change.
If you want to be well, it is your responsibility to see yourself as well and to change your perception to see yourself and your body as healing. It is your responsibility to see yourself as fit, strong, healthy, and well and to adapt the world around you AND inside you to support that.
If you are sick and blaming the sickness for your circumstance, you are shirking your responsibility and pretending you have no control over your circumstances. When in fact, you have a massive amount of control and contribution to your current circumstances.
So in response to the question, my doctor says, “I’ll never heal, is that true?” I say, “What do you believe?”
Work on taking responsibility for what you see. This is a practice in developing the faith and trust that you can heal, you do know what to do, and that your body is smart and wise. Decide to trust that when you are not sure what to do, you will be guided to the right and perfect solution for you.
And remember that with the illnesses or symptoms, it’s your body telling you, “Hey! I need attention.” It’s not that your body is at war with you. Just that you need to give it some attention and change something that YOU are doing.
Your healing is within your power and control but you have to get serious about making changes in your life. So it’s time to start collaborating with your body and become an experimenter. Get curious: What is it that your body is asking for?
