This is a really tough one. But it’s also the most valuable step you can take.
Here it is.
What if it was to…
I used to be terribly sickly. Sick every few weeks to months. Chronic cough, looked anemic, migraines that would put me down for the count etc.
Right now, everything is perfect the way it is, and it’s all your fault.
It’s what you need, because it’s what will help you grow, become a better person and build a better character.
It’s not a perfect journey but it’s perfect for you where you are right now.
And it’s okay.
What does it really mean?
Well, look at it like this.
Chronic disease is usually created by us.
It’s usually created by the way we think, feel and behave in the world and with the world around us.
And at the end of the day, a health professional will be with us maybe an hour or two a week TOPS.
But we are with ourselves 24 hours a day 7 days a week, for our entire lives.
Each week that’s a 168:1 or 84:1 ratio…
We spend much more time perpetuating our disease then our health practitioner does healing it.
So we need to take responsibility to take the actions and make the changes to stop the vicious cycle.
And we are adults.
We usually know the changes we need to make
We usually know what our bodies need and we know we need to listen to the voice inside us that comes from our heart and guides us down the right path.
And even if we don’t specifically know, we know how to find the answers.
And it’s okay because it’s who we are as humans.
If something makes you mad, pisses you off or creates fear in you, spend some more time with it.
Go into it and investigate why.
Most people know their next step, they just need some help in taking it.
I’m always here if you have questions, feel stuck or need some advice, just ask.
What if you weren’t sick?
What if you didn’t have “migraines” and you just had a problem with hearing your body say no to certain foods, behaviours and environments?
What if it was just a way your body said NO?
But giving you the monster and possibly the angel that is migraines is just a protective mechanism?
I know for me it was an angel…
In the moment, it felt like nothing of the sort, not even close.
But over time, as I learned and listened, it was the biggest voice my body could create for me to listen to.
