MY PERSONAL HEALING ATTITUDES

About thirty five years ago, I was very ill. In addition to following a nutritional balancing program, I adopted some attitudes that, without question, assisted my complete healing:
1. Where there is life, there is hope.
2. Your primary job is healing. All else is secondary. Keep your priorities straight. For example, do not let work, family, Christmas or anything else stop your progress. This may sound selfish, but it is absolutely necessary.
People would sometimes ask me what my work was. I did not hesitate to say that my primary job was healing myself, right now.
3. Laugh a lot. A good way to do this is to watch funny shows on TV or rent funny movies. Anything or being around anyone who is too serious is not helpful.
4. Stop analyzing your condition. Instead, do the Pushing Down Exercise more often, and harder. The more and the more forcefully, the better. This brings up your issues, and will give you insights you need, when they are needed.
5. Don’t compare your life to those of your “healthier” friends and family. This can be hard, at times, but in reality we don’t know the reasons why one person’s life is different from another’s.
6. Remember the line from the bible: “Those whom God cherishes, He chastens.” This means that because you suffer, it does not mean you are a bad or worthless person, and it might mean the exact opposite! Maybe your “rough edges” are being ground away, like a diamond that must be cut and polished to be really valuable and beautiful.
7. Be willing to take help. Realize there are people out there who want to help you. In other words, it is a benign world and ask in prayer every day to connect to those wonderful people and energies that are just waiting to assist you.
8. Watch out for doctors, most tests, diagnostic labels and prognoses. They may mean well, but very few have even a clue about nutritional balancing, and they can easily scare you. Realize that blood tests are often skewed by a nutritional balancing program. Read about this in the article entitled Blood Tests And Nutritional Balancing. So stay away as much as possible.
9. Decide that your illness is teaching you many good lessons. These include patience, becoming more empathetic, becoming a better listener, and you will be much more able to help others in similar situations.
10. Go down swinging. When things get rough, decide that giving up is somehow not as much fun as just keeping going, doing your best each day.
11. Ask the Holy Spirit, or the Masters, for help, support and guidance each and every day. You don’t have to believe in these beings. Just do it, anyway.
12. If possible, take a slow, gentle walk every day for up to an hour. During the walk, breathe very deeply and do the Pushing Down Exercise the whole time.
If walking is not safe outside, maybe you can walk at a mall. Or consider buying a medium-sized dog, and maybe a mean-looking dog, to walk with you.
13. Stop listening to the naysayers in your family and among your friends and colleagues. Don’t discuss your health with naysayers. In some cases, you will need to cut them off altogether.
Instead, hang out with those who are on the same healing journey as you are.
Also, do not spend time with the whiners and complainers, but only with those who are actively healing their health condition and their life the way you have decided to do.
14. Read inspiring stories of people who suffered and overcame. Watch movies of this type as well. There are many inspiring stories and biographies.
15. Do a coffee enema or two every day, and an extra one if you feel very out of sorts or toxic.
16. Stay in touch with your nutritional balancing coach or doctor. Never isolate yourself from your support team.
17. Keep a “toolbox” ready for emergencies. It should include very inspiring and uplifting reading material, maybe a CD or DVD, and reminders to rub the feet, do an enema, meditate, and call for help.
18. Know that healing can seem like spiritual warfare. Some days you will win and some days you will have a setback or defeat. That is okay. Losing a battle is not losing the war. Be sure you are aligning yourself with the forces of light at all times by eating correctly, getting plenty of rest, taking your supplements, doing your procedures and keeping your mind positive as best you can.
This is not about denial of your pain and suffering. It is about looking on the bright side and knowing that the “enemy” wants you to be depressed, sad, despondent and despairing – so don’t give your foe that pleasure and victory. Read the articles on this site entitled Commandos, The Secret Society Of Loving, Light-Hearted Warriors and The Warrior Path.
19. The twenty-third psalm is very powerful. Repeat it often. Read more about it in the article entitled The Twenty-Third Psalm.
20. Let go of anger. I know it can be difficult, but it just makes you more ill. So forgive everyone for everything – no exceptions allowed!
21. Let go of worry as best you can. It accomplishes absolutely nothing. A good way to do this is to stay in the present, and take one day at a time. Living fully in the present is, in fact, the best way to prepare for the future. The pushing down exercise will slowly help greatly to keep you focused in the present. In contrast, living in the future tends to cause anxiety and worry.
22. Let go of regret, remorse, guilt, and feeling sorry for yourself. These do absolutely no good at all! Staying present will help you with this as well. In contrast, living in the past leads to regret and remorse.
If you need to apologize to someone for something from the past, get it over with and do it.
23. Learn to love and accept yourself at all times, no matter how rotten, despondent or afraid you feel. This can be done, I assure you. You don’t really know what is going on at deep levels, so stop judging yourself. There is nothing like despair to help wake a person up. Perhaps the entire reason for your situation or illness is so you will wake up and not live or think like everyone else, many of whom are not as happy as they seem.
