One of the keys to health and happiness is self-love! I truly believe this! I also believe that the opposite … self-loathing [lack of self love] and its partner, fear … is at the root of all chronic health conditions.
I recently watched a Super Soul Conversation Oprah Winfrey conducted with Gary Zukov, author of Seat of the Soul. During their delightful chat, I was reminded of how important it is for me to acknowledge and be grateful for the wonderful gifts of this Parkinson’s experience!
The last four months has been a remarkable journey of ebbs and flows, fearful moments and spiritual insights, culminating in a renewed focus on acceptance, surrender, gratitude, forgiveness and love!
A couple of days ago, I was in the forest that surrounds our home, collecting kindling for a fire. I was dressed only in shorts and a T-shirt, enjoying the warm sunshine, when it occurred to me how truly special was the moment! This was rare! Shorts and a T-shirt so deep into autumn in our part of the world! Then the thought came to me that the key to eliminating fear and stress [which is the key to good health] is spending time in nature, completely free of thought! It was illuminating indeed! The universal-energetic-intelligence will communicate with us and guide us on this road less travelled! Being in nature, without thought, opens us to this potential! It was a phenomenal moment and I felt awesome!
Touchwood, but I feel very fortunate that I sleep well! Most nights I sleep straight through, 7 to 8 hours!
A couple of weeks ago I decided to change the focus of the blogs I was posting. I did this for two reasons. First, I have already covered everything I know about recovering from Parkinson’s. It is all included in my protocol! Second, I decided that my posts would be more beneficial if they were more inspirational in nature and content. Help others to experience happiness, even if only for a moment!
Conflict arises when one party tries to impose its will on another party and the second party resists, or worse still, counters by trying to impose its will on the first party.
We are presently having such an experience on the road we live on!
Let me begin by saying, even though I’m writing a post about anxiety, I thankfully, do not experience a lot of it. The situations that cause me to experience anxiety include speaking in front of a crowd, packing for a trip or being late for something. These situations are infrequent.
Since being interviewed by Robert Rodgers last week I have spoken to several people who are really struggling at the moment. And even though we’ve all been diagnosed with the same condition, our challenges are quite varied. Severe trembling, anxiety, panic, headaches, paralysis and immobility, disorientation and the like.
I am presently in the midst of an intense healing period. I’m grateful to say that a few blog readers are doing the same protocol and we are sharing our experience. I’m so happy not to be doing this alone. The healing we’re doing is based on a protocol developed by Janice Walton-Hadlock of pdrecovery.org. Walton-Hadlock believes that Parkinson’s disease is not the result of being in a chronic fight-or-flight state of fear, but rather, it is from being in a chronic “pause” state of fear or from being in a chronic “disassociative” state of fear.
