Changing your mind to the positive is a key aspect in taking back your health. I remember very clearly when I changed my mind. I had just become separated from my wife. She told me when she was leaving, that I would find my strength and my power if she left. I didn’t believe one word of it. It made me sad and angry actually. For a time, I sat with that sadness and anger. Nothing changed. Being sad and angry and remaining on all of my pharmaceutical medications certainly wasn’t going to change my life for the better. But I couldn’t see that. Then one day, I was thinking about the victim that I had become. A victim of the medical system, of the diseases that I had, of the failing economy, of the 16 pharmaceutical medications that I was on, and of the pharmaceutical companies themselves. I decided I didn’t want to be a victim anymore. To do this, I realized that I had to change my mind. Once I started to change my mind, I could see everything with more clarity.
Next, I began to change my language. I realized that I was owning the diseases that I had by saying things like “my” dermatomyositis or “my” psoriatic arthritis, “my” diabetes, or “my” myasthenia gravis. So instead, I said, “I have 4 autoimmune diseases, but they don’t have me”. Or I said, “I am healthy and whole”. I not only said these things, but I believed them. I couldn’t just have faith that I would change my mind, it was key to believe it, and to know that it was happening. And to never waiver on that.
To empower myself further, I read everything I could on the diseases I had and the medications that I was on. I then began to investigate what alternative treatments might help me. I had read all about the diseases before, but this time it was through the eyes of someone who was going to be victorious over them, find alternatives that worked, and teach my body to heal itself. The body knows how to heal itself, but it can only do so under the right conditions.
There was one more belief system I had to conquer. You see, the doctors had told me that I was going to die repeatedly. I believed them. It was like they, in their white coats with their diplomas on the wall, had some inside information from my maker, and only they had the key to unlock my ability to remain alive. Our beliefs are very powerful. So in changing my mind, I had to change my beliefs. Or more accurately, I had to stop believing what the doctors were telling me. I am a trained medical professional, a spiritual healer, and a very intelligent woman. But all that went out the window the minute they told me that I was going to die from the disease that made me gravely ill or the medicine that they believed they had to give me to treat it with. I had already been a survivor in my life. With this illness, I had to realize that I already had survived it too. Once I did, I was determined to find a way to live well, not just be a survivor.
Our mind is a powerful thing. We are a product of our genetics, intelligence, family, experiences, beliefs and more. That said, we can change our mind at any time to the more positive. In doing so, we find our truth and change our lives for the better.
Change your mind, change your life. You’re victorious, beautiful life is in your own hands.
