Perhaps you’ve been wondering why I keep talking about the emotions behind health conditions. Firstly, because I’m interested, I want to know, learn, find out and understand myself and also for the world and others.
We are lucky to live in a time where there is more advanced, traditional treatment and diagnostics, which mostly deal with the consequences, not with the cause or the stress. It doesn’t deal with the initial triggers of discord in the mind or body. The best combination of course is to work with a medical doctor and do your inner work. These practitioners do what they know best, and you do your part; you know you the best. That’s where healing ‘miracles’ happen.
How about knowing why you have the health discord in the first place? Actually, knowing feels lighter to say than understanding. Knowing is just something you are, understanding feels like a bottomless hole where there’s a lot to do.
The body gives us chances to learn again and again, and is forever forgiving if you think about what you have created for it. If you do not pay attention to small illnesses, bigger ones can be created, to get your attention.
It’s about acknowledging that you have illness as a consequence of your own distorted thinking, while at the same time, it gives you the acknowledgment of the root cause, when it was created and understanding why you have it in the first place.
It’s not the same with children; small children are expressing everything that their parents are, their thinking and problems; even if these are not obvious to other people, and most often these are hidden. Once parents understand the issue, the child gets well.
Surgery may be seen in one view as violence towards your body, and it’s better not to let your health decline that far. If you think for a moment – what is natural about the steel blade inserted into your sweet, vulnerable, beautiful body?
By cutting out the problem in a surgical way, the problem stays, unless it’s a lesson learned or understood why it came in the first place. If it’s not understood, it will come back in a bigger way, as a more serious health issue. One organ gets removed, and the disease spreads to another one.
Serious illnesses or addictions require a long term/forever commitment to your health, and there’s no going back.
It’s very important to take responsibility rather than make yourself wrong, once you understand that you, yourself created the problem or the health condition. These are our life lessons, and this is the evolution leading us to a new understanding, new awareness of our self and the world. That’s where you see people who have turned their unimaginable health issue into a blessing. It’s a mindset; the point of view on it.
What would it take to reset the mind? What is kindness to your body? What would it be to be kind to your sweet body?
Get well; stay well!
