The greatest challenge I face is standing in my faith as I experience the torture of chronic pain invading my body.
And at the moment I begin to cry, I remind myself that my thoughts create my reality. I cannot allow myself to think negatively where I may further fuel this autoimmune disease.
I stop. I breathe. I rest. I will not allow fear to take over my mindset. I am stronger than the Lupus traveling within my body. Immediately, I begin to utilize my smorgasbord of healthy practices that completely nourishes my body, mind and spirit. I use visualization to see my desired outcome of wellness. I will arrive there my way…using natural and organic solutions. I remind myself again that given the chance, the body will heal itself. All I need do is listen for what it needs…and breathe…Mindful breathing as I visualize this foreign invader exiting my body. And my pain exits along with this disease.
As my body speaks to me, I understand what it needs to heal…Love, rest, water, healthy foods, connection to loved ones, positive thoughts and visualizations, and my deep connection to Spirit.
I pray. I meditate. I am certain of my outcome.
You see, I choose to be well. And as the late Wayne Dyer, psychologist and author of over 20 books states, “ it’s been proven that the thoughts we choose have everything to do with our emotions. I can tell you that a commitment to feeling good can take away a stomach ache, fear, depression, sadness, anxiety…you name it. Any stress signal is a way of alerting you to say the five magic words: I want to feel good. This is your intention to be tranquil (well) and stress-free and it’s a way of connecting to spirit.”
It feels so good to feel good. And it’s up to me to lead myself out of fear, out of pain, and into wellness…body, mind and spirit. I take back my power. And sometimes I need to take back my power often during the day, as I experience fear. And, I am always ahead of this visitor, and I show it the door.
Pain is a mindset. Wellness is a choice.
Love and blessings,
