healing from the inside out

“I could never shake the blame for being sick.” – chronic-critical illness survivor

IMG_0083a person battling it out with a chronic and critical illness writes to me:

“I could never shake the blame for being sick.”

my response:
first of all, I HEAR YOU!
life is mutual and we all go through this, those of us challenged by an ongoing and serious condition that pulls the rug out from under us, sucking our life energy and affecting our families and everything in our lives
i had to learn to JUST BLESS IT – whatever’s going on.  it’s certainly ‘enough already’ that we’re having all this to deal with in the first place
how does it serve us, or anybody, to add self-blame on top of the whole discombobulated scene? (isn’t that a good question – i know it knocked my socks off when someone proposed that i think about it)
go figure – here’s a little yoga exercise:
each time your mind downloads a blame message onto the screen of your awareness, consciously put your cursor on it, select it and move it over to the side
and now, simply observe it – just let it sit there and feel it, how it affects you
check it out
is it TRUE?
is it possible that it’s an old defense mechanism that your ego (whose job is to totally protect you biologically and physiologically) created at some dramatic point in the development of your innocent self, to protect you and make sense out of something that felt extremely threatening and totally out-of-control?
…and how many times did this scenario continue to play out in your life, gaining momentum and force?
and just how strong and  loud and sickening is that message by now?
is it locked in as a HABIT, a broken-record-syndrome that automatically jumps up, acting out and getting in your face when in fact that subliminal message no longer serves you ???
i’m sure you agree that you can’t control the future, and the past is gone
but don’t you agree that in this very moment, you DO have control? –
the ONLY place where we have any power is RIGHT NOW!

how do you want to spend this moment?

when that blame message pops up, recognize it for what it really is and leave it on the shelf (don’t put it in your shopping cart!)

don’t buy it

it’s not TRUE


and repeat this mantra, swipe it across the top of the thought no matter what – it’s just an exercise

i am a life. I AM I AM

let it be, because that thought IS there in the space of your psyche, but run a positive thought on top of it
now there’s TWO thoughts in the space of your present moment
one is ancient and has a negative energy and one is fresh and has positive energy, by way of your very own choice to employ it NOW
i found that this practice gave me a sense of being in charge of my life.  eventually the negative messages took a back seat and started to dissolve as i embraced my truth and allowed a positive projection to reign as my latest choice for reminding myself and the world who i truly was – and who i was NOT!
i believe you will find that your conscious, self-supporting choices and actions, moment by moment, will remove you from victim-mode and give you an experience of the victorious YOU via your inner power to choose your reality
think about it – how much credit do you deserve for making it all the way through to this point, all things considered in the arena of those of us busting our butts to survive the challenges on our plates
be ever so kind to yourself and give yourself a break
let your mind serve you and insist on spending you next moment residing in your VICTORY
