We’re so used to going to someone else to get ‘fixed’. We’ve become so comfortable in giving that power away and expecting a quick fix – by someone else!
The thing is, it’s quite likely an aspect of us that got us into our unhealthy mess to begin with, so why would we expect true healing by staying as we are and not changing? Something in our way of being – our thoughts, beliefs, identity, way of life, led to us being unwell.
This might seem far-fetched to many of you, because we’ve been so indoctrinated to believe that we’re powerless in healing ourselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. We’ve also been indoctrinated into thinking that disease is random or genetic – just bad luck. In this way we’re encouraged to deny any possibility of our role in becoming ill. It’s a double-whammy of the ‘powerless me’ myth.
DO WE CREATE OUR OWN ILLNESS?
Consider this. It’s certainly worth thinking about.
We know that by focusing on slides containing our DNA with different feelings (hate, love, anger etc) that we affect it in different ways. We have the power to create harmony in our own DNA.
We know that by looking at containers of water in the same way – focusing on them with different emotions, that we affect the molecular structure of the water to create beauty, symmetry and harmony or disharmony and asymmetry.
We know that we can develop muscle strength and mass by sitting on the couch imagining working out.
We know about the placebo effect.
We know that our body isn’t some mechanical system divorced from our mind.
We know that our thoughts and feelings have a material effect.
We know so many things now. Things that we’ve been told by wise people of the ages for, well, ages! Isn’t it time we took our knowledge that tiny step further and applied it to ourselves?
CAN I CREATE HEALTH?
Consider this: if I played a role in creating illness, then why on earth couldn’t I create wellness for myself?
Exactly – why on earth not?!
To be continued next week. Stay tuned!
