One of the things I am most grateful for is my health and my knowledge about health and wellness. I was sickly when I was child, but now that I'm an health practitioner, I hardly get sick even after getting exposed to some pretty ill patients at the clinic.
As a child, yes I was vaccinated, but beyond that, my mother hardly ever brought me to a medical doctor, unless she thought I was dying. I remember having measles twice. Whenever I was ill, she would bring me instead to a local "hilot" (hee-lot). A hilot is somewhat of a "wildcrafted" massage therapist-midwife-herbalist-energy (faith) healer-shaman rolled into one. Their healing skill/talent/knowledge/gift was typically passed down from one generation to the next. I was a regular "patient" of my beloved hilot, and I'd always feel better after seeing her.
I think it's because of this that I grew up believing in the body's innate healing intelligence...and with a propensity to the "woo-woo" stuff (I admit it) which would eventually lead me to my current profession. I believe there is a Higher Intelligence/Power that is guiding us, and that this Higher Intelligence resides inside of each one of us. I believe we are the microcosm of the macrocosm, within the macrocosm, and at the same time, we are both the micro and macrocosm...if that makes any sense.
In today's polluted, marketing-hypnotized, media-driven, war-addicted, gmo-laden, corporation-controlled and politically-divided world, we are bombarded with ideas 24/7...ideas that make us believe that we are less than who we truly are.
Well, my friend, I tell you this. It is time to stand up. It is time to reclaim the truth. It is time to shed the lies.
I urge you to start listening to your body. I encourage you to reconnect with your soul. Your body knows the truth. On the same token, your body listens and follows your beliefs. I challenge you to question your belief system...who did you get it from, where and when...is it really true...I challenge you to suspend your belief, and for one moment, look at your life with a different paradigm, a paradigm that is based on love, compassion, and respect for the body, honoring its Divine wisdom...not the ones based on fear or guilt or shame or loyalty to the "authorities". Would that paradigm change your life for the better? I believe the answer is a resounding Yes.
YOUR BODY CAN HEAL ANYTHING...AND I MEAN, ANYTHING...GIVEN THE CHANCE AND THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT.
This environment is our thoughts, feelings, our core belief systems, intentionality, clean, unadulterated food, inner congruency and integrity, and external environment. Just like a pool with dirty water, you have a choice to clean that water before swimming in...or not swim there at all. You can change the environment.
YOUR BODY, YOUR HEALTH, YOUR CHOICE.
Your body is more powerful and intelligent than you give it credit for. Your body's only job is to love and serve you. Love and serve it back with all your might. Give it a chance.
