Remember that everything about your health is perfect.
We often give thanks for our good health; the ability to walk, talk, see and hear. The fact that we are mobile, able to perform daily functions, and engage with others easily. When we are faced with a health challenge, though, it’s common to forget to feel gratitude for this as well.
I’ve suffered from back pain off and on through my adult life as a result of childhood sports injuries. Those times when I was flat on the ground unable to move (and there have been many), I would often forget to offer my humble gratitude for that experience. During the worst of it, my mind would often get caught up in cursing the pain and expressing frustration and regret that I ever injured it in the first place.
At some point, though, I would remember that I was a Spiritual Being having a
human experience. And my human experience included pain and limited movement at certain points of my life. Gratitude for these experiences brought me peace, calm and understanding almost immediately. Of course, with the peace and calm came a more relaxed muscular state, lowering my cortisol, reducing pain and allowing my body the space to heal.
As a result of these times, I’ve learned many life lessons. A big one affected my healthcare practice. My Connected Inner Self knew that my passion lied in helping people with chronic, organic problems–more-so than adjusting spines and fixing muscular pain problems. My human brain had a belief system that said I had to do it all. The conflict resulted in pain in my low back.
I learned in order to take care of myself, I could no longer provide chiropractic
adjustments in the same manner than I had done for years. I couldn’t see so many people in one day, and had to slow things down. This forced me to finally shape my practice into one that I love – offering energetic chiropractic adjustments to accompany Functional Healthcare for hormones, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, menopause, post-chemo and trauma recovery, and more.
If I hadn’t allowed myself to feel Gratitude for that low back pain, I don’t know that I would have allowed myself to realize the truth of what I am supposed to be doing here on this plane. And I am also very Grateful that it was only pain; if I hadn’t felt the Gratitude at that point, what would Spirit have had to do to get my attention?
So when reciting your Gratitude this Thanksgiving, remember to express it for everything; the bad blood test, the pain in your body, fatigue, hot flashes, brain fog – whatever it is. It is all perfect.
