In the Process of Self Healing Sometimes You Feel Like You’ve Been Fooled
Do you ever feel like you are finally getting some relief from some symptoms when they start back up again? Have you ever found yourself following your treatment perfectly only to have the symptoms sneak in and out? One day you are feeling better than ever and the next day you are feeling your worst?
It feels like a big, “Fooled you!”
It’s aggravating, isn’t it? I experience it like a bad April Fools joke. Lately, I’ve been at the brunt end of the joke. After receiving some information about my body’s systems through bio-feedback, I decided to do a thorough cleansing diet, eliminating any foods that would promote the growth of candida, or create a poor digestive environment.
In addition to the strict diet, I was taking homeopathic remedies, herbs and supplements to flush out mold, yeast, bacteria and parasites. It was a lot to do, but I knew it was worth it in order to enjoy maximum health and ensure that I don’t perpetuate an environment where serious diseases can grab hold.
In the process of cleansing, I had some really great days and some really tough ones. I noticed that it was quite easy for me to feel discouraged if I started feeling some discomfort. In fact, if I had allowed myself to do so, I could have created an entire thought process and story-line about how my treatment must not be working, when in fact it was just an uncomfortable hour or day.
When You Are Committed to Self Healing, You Need to Become Aware of Your Thoughts
I noticed how conscious I needed to be with my thoughts and feelings. The moment I felt discouraged, I paused. I had a choice. I could feed the disappointment with worry and doubt or I could use it as a moment in which to strengthen my resolve, inviting my body to perform at its best.
I opted for recommitting to my absolute healing. Now, I know it is important to honor feelings when they come up, so I gave myself a moment to just feel the disappointment in compassion.
When the disappointment dissolved, I allowed myself to enjoy the silence and the peace I was experiencing and then invited every cell in my body to enter into that peace by bringing itself into optimum health.
In mind, body, spirit healing, you need to astutely aware of your thoughts and your feelings, so that you can direct your entire being toward your self healing.
The Mind, Body, and Spirit Respond to Your Clear Intention and Choice Feel Yourself Well Until You Become Well
It was wonderful to see how quickly my body responded to that call to action when it came from such a profound place of peace and trust that I would heal—completely. The symptoms practically vanished and I was graphically reminded about how much our thoughts and feelings affect our physical experiences.
If pain or discomfort is an alarm system, then whatever had flared up for the moment seemed to respond to my influx of healing thoughts, feelings and intent. Certainly, if the discomfort had gone on for what seemed an unreasonable period of time, I would have sought out professional help. But momentary setbacks do not always mean there is a problem. (And if you are not sure, it is always best to consult with your doctor.)
I’ve learned over the years that a little discomfort in the self healing journey can be the result of a treatment that is working, particularly when detoxification is taking place. This detox reaction is also called a Herxheimer reaction: http://www.falconblanco.com/health/crisis.htm
As I discovered in my own recent healing, momentary discomfort can also be a call to discover your spiritual, healing gifts and apply more personal healing energy and clearer intention. It can be physically helpful and emotionally empowering to turn the joke around. Leverage the moment to create even greater self healing by allowing your mind, body and spirit to turn disappointment into heartfelt commitment to your well being.
