My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 228 … The purpose of parkinson’s … Understanding the gift of the disease

giftContrary to the language used on most parkinson’s disease websites, I do not consider myself to be battling parkinson’s. Nor do I think of myself as suffering from a disease.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 186 … Ride out the storm!

stormy seasI had an epiphany of sorts today! It occurred while I was listening to a spoken word poem by blogger James Fielden. I was connected to James by another blogger, Michelle Marie. I realized while listening to James speak that I want so desperately to recover my health and put an end to the symptoms I’m experiencing, I’m not allowing myself to fully engage in the experience, and in so doing, likely perpetuating it. It’s like the sailor who wants the raging storm to end, The storm is going to end when it ends, not because he wants it to. Desperately wanting the storm to end adds to the level of stress.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 142 … Unhaunting the past … The magic bullet!

magicIn 1993, I learned about the relationship between present suffering and unresolved emotional pain from the past [especially from childhood experiences]. Since then, I’ve been healing unresolved emotional pain from the past almost on a daily basis, and I’ve experienced many positive results.  For instance, I was able to overcome migraine headaches that I had been experiencing at a rate of three to four a week.  I have been a big believer in the concept!

Since then, I have also been on an on again, off again quest to discover a process whereby I can dissolve all unresolved emotional energy from the past in one-fell-swoop! In essence, a magic bullet!

I’m thrilled to say that I have been successful in my quest!
