In my journey healing from fibromyalgia, I often felt like this until I found a short video of me trying to get out of bed in the morning when it was at its height a few years previously. When I saw how bad I was, and how far I’d come it really changed my outlook!
Particularly with long-standing conditions, you need to understand that it can take time and, while healing can be quick in some circumstances, it can also be a slow process, depending on what your body needs to do. As we slowly heal we tend to still focus on what’s wrong and not what has got better. I see it all the time in clients and admit I used to be guilty of this myself. With clients who may be in this trap, I often look back and go through the list of symptoms they originally came to me with to help them realise how far they’ve come, and they always leave with a return of encouragement and hope.
The advice I can give is to keep a journal, video and written. Not only does it help to clear your mind and bring clarity, identify patterns and useful things about yourself, it also serves as something to look back when you feel like you are not going anywhere.
We are self-sufficient, self-regulating biological systems but we have been brainwashed to believe that we need to interfere and that we know better than ourselves! This is true whether you have a mainstream or alternative approach to disease and healing. But this is like trying to play God.
It must be so frustrating for our inner wisdom when we interfere – like when the computer thinks it knows best and overrides what we’re trying to do. Of course our bodies need the right tools (nutrition) to do its job and sometimes it needs support. But we need to get back to allowing the bodily processes and biological programmes to complete in their own natural way. It’s not the easiest of paths but it ensures true healing on all levels.
German New Medicine teaches us how wonderful and powerful our bodies really are. That for the most part, we do not need to rely upon corporations who profit from our lack of health with their invasive intervention.
The promotion of any information that contradicts this fact is a subversive act of terrorism, a true insult to nature itself and a crime against humanity.
We are and will always have everything we need. All we need to do is trust.
Just as we trust the trees will grow again, the flowers will bloom, the fruit will ripen…we can trust in ourselves and our body’s exceptional ability to heal itself.
Everything in nature has a special meaningful purpose 💛🧡❤
The mighty oak stood proud, and loved boasting about his strength to the blade of grass below him.
“Look how weak you are, you are so pathetic, don’t you wish you were mighty and strong like me? I stand tall, steady and strong. Look at my amazing trunk and my solid limbs.”
Every day the blade of grass felt more and more useless and doubtful of herself, and dreamt of one day being stronger than the oak.
One evening there was a big storm. Wind and rain lashed down and thunder crashed. In the morning, the blade of grasse awoke to find the mighty oak had blown down! The blade of grass realised the oak’s rigid strength was actually his weakness. While she may not be physically strong, her strength came from her ability to adapt to the challenges she faced, allowing herself to go with the flow without resistance, allowing them to pass and not holding on to them.
It is not what happens to us, but how we react to it and perceive the situation that is important. That is where our power and true strength lies.
