I know this can be a very controversial topic… I’ll share my thoughts on it below and I would love to hear your thoughts as well on this statement:
If there is no source of illness, why are there so many sick people? It is because they have found lots of excuses to hold themselves in vibrational discord with wellness. They are not letting it in. And when they don’t let it in, the absence of it looks like sickness. And when enough of them do it you say, “Oh, there must be a source of sickness. In fact, let’s give it a label. Let’s call it cancer. Let’s call it AIDS. Let’s call it all kinds of terrible things, and let’s imply that it jumps into people’s experience.” And we say it never jumps into anybody’s experience. It’s just that people learn through trial and error, and — through banging around with each other — patterns of thought that don’t let it in.
So, they way I see it, and I remember when I first heard this concept, it seemed too far off, not true and I had a lot of resistance to it. However, over the past 20 years I have come to learn, through experience, that it is VERY true. I see it everyday, not only in my own life experience but in that of my clients and students. To simplify it, I would say this…
What I truly love about this way of believing is that we are not some random number that is assigned an illness or disease. We are powerful beings creating our experiences, sometimes unknowingly. However, do we not also then have the opportunity to learn and grow and expand to greater understandings? Anytime I am sick, hurt or just not 100%, I choose to look within to see what might be going on inside of me. Where my emotions are, what I have been thinking about consistently, what I might be resisting… and generally, with that awareness, the sickness starts to release.. and generally heals quite quickly.
There have also been times where it has taken longer to heal… based on my resistance or unwillingness to truly look at the issue. In those situations, I can usually see afterwards… when I am out of the fear.. what it was I was holding on to or in fear of. How about you?
By the way… having an illness is not a punishment. It is not a measurement of if you are a good or bad person. Please know it is only an external (the diagnosis or awareness of the illness) manifestation of an internal energetic pattern.. and one that can be healed.
They way I work with illness is pretty simple. I say to myself, where is it that I am resisting my natural good? What emotion have I been focused on? What fear am I feeling? Talking about? Observing? My BODY knows and I can never fool my body. So, once I listen, I can then begin the work of healing that pattern.. and becoming healthy again. It’s like once I get really honest with myself… it (the illness) releases from my body.
