Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #104 … Focus on gratitude, rather than wanting!

sunlightDuring a recent conversation with a friend, I was reminded of the importance of focusing on gratitude, rather than wanting.

When you are living with a chronic health condition it is easy to find yourself wanting to be healthy, wanting to recover your health. But in the world of the law of attraction, when the universe hears, “I want,” it gives us more to want. It keeps us perpetually in this state. Whereas, when we live in a state of gratitude, regardless of what we are grateful for, the universe gives us more to be grateful for.

The truth is, we don’t need to think about wanting to be healthy because the universal-energetic-intelligence [and our higher self] knows what we want. We just need to make sure our actions are in alignment with our objective.

Wanting puts us in a state of unease, whereas gratitude puts us in a state of happiness! When we are happy, our bodies are producing feel-good neurotransmitters, like dopamine and serotonin, so it’s easy to see why it is so advantageous to be in this state!

And I have so much to be grateful for: Mari, my children, my brothers, my friends, where I live, the people who read my books, and so much more! It’s easy for me to have an attitude of gratitude! I can even find plenty of reasons to be grateful for this health condition I’m experiencing because it’s taught me so much, while helping me connect with so many wonderful people all over the world!

I am grateful for the reminder!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #98 … Life is Awesome!

hummingbirdWe may be living with this challenging health condition but that doesn’t mean life can’t be awesome!

Last night, just after sunset [which was spectacular!] a deer passed through our yard! Last week, while eating breakfast on the deck, a bald eagle flew overhead! Twice in the last few days, a hummingbird has hovered inches from my face!

My life is filled with the spectacular moments and I get to experience them every day!

I am blessed for many reasons! I live on a lake on Manitoulin Island! I have three amazing children! I have a wonderful partner! I get to play golf, chop firewood, spend time in nature and write!

It doesn’t mean I don’t have moments of frustration, because I do. It also doesn’t mean I don’t get angry, because I do. But these are just moments and they pass. And then I am blessed with the next spectacular moment!

And I am particularly blessed with the awareness of spiritual consciousness, my divine nature and my oneness with the universal-energetic-intelligence! I am blessed with love!

Yes, my life is awesome!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #92 … Shorts and a T-shirt!

shortsOh, the last two days were glorious days! I mean, every day is a glorious day, but the last two were particularly so! For the first time since last fall, I was able to spend the entire day wearing only shorts and a T-shirt!

I happen to live in a part of the world that experiences all four seasons, including winter. This past winter was particularly long. In fact, April, which is usually the start of spring, was more like winter than March! We got a lot of snow! Mother Nature’s sense of humour, I suppose!

These days, particularly in the midst of Bowen therapy purging, getting dressed is challenging and the more clothes I have to put on, the more challenging it is! So when the temperature is warm enough for shorts and a T-shirt, it is a welcome relief!

So thank you Mother Nature … you and the hippie dippy weatherman … for giving us a couple of much appreciated warm days!

Ahhh, shorts and a T-shirt! Just what the doctor ordered!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #39 … A Challenging Day!

victimTo quote a well-used cliche, “I’m not gonna lie to you,” yesterday was a challenging day! I’m not quite sure how to describe it except to say, I was a mess … and I’m not much better today! My voice was very raspy [almost inaudible at times] making it very difficult for me to use speech recognition. My entire body was very tense. There was considerably more trembling in my hands and much more loss of balance and freezing. I was also feeling very irritable and my patience was really put to the test!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #35 … Elevate Vibrational Frequency!

vibrational freqOn our recent trip to Toronto, Mari and I got around to talking about dark energies. She told me she doesn’t believe in them. She believes that dark energies are just energetic beings vibrating at a lower frequency. I realized when she said this, that she was right, and not just how we think about spiritual beings, but also how we approach our health, particularly when we are dealing with a chronic health condition.

I’m riding a bucking bronco! Bobbing on a stormy sea! Being tossed about on the Salt & Pepper Shaker ride at the fair! For the last three months I have been on a heck of a ride on my journey to recovery! Triggered by medical marijuana, I have been processing and purging fear and other long buried emotional stuff that has left me feeling panicky, anxious, frustrated and experiencing very intense symptoms! It has been a challenge!
