There are two ways to view the same idea: as blaming the victim for their disease/condition – which is indeed offensive; or empowering a victim to take control of a situation that was forced upon them outside of their control – which is the best news a person can receive. The problem is, those two opposite perspectives come from the same message: your body can and must be your own healer. Don’t shoot the messenger. Consider which message you CHOOSE to receive.
If “Science” hasn’t worked for someone, and still, after 50 years, doesn’t know how to cure chronic Lyme, wouldn’t that imply that we need to open our eyes to something “Science” isn’t considering? Isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
Don’t see this as a black or white issue: Science or innate healing. Understand that it’s BOTH. You’re not being asked to choose a side, you’re being asked to embrace BOTH. That is the power: two together.
When we get a disease or injury, what do we do? We see a doctor, we ask for the medicine, we get the surgery. We immediately, as we are taught, look for all the things outside of ourselves. We’re desperately looking for the cure OUTSIDE because we believe its the INSIDE that’s diseased. But from the tiniest papercut to the biggest virus, WHAT IS HEALING US? It is, and always has been, OUR OWN IMMUNE SYSTEM. It’s INSIDE us! People have healed injuries and diseases for thousands of years without anything we have at our disposal today. How is that possible? Because they had immune systems! Healing is, always has been, always must come from, INSIDE OF US. Because that’s the very SCIENTIFIC DEFINITION of a body and an immune system!
This is NOT saying ALL we need is inside, that you can heal with mind alone (though some do!) This is the problem - our inside isn’t strong enough or is too dysfunctional to do the healing by itself. So we do need “Science” or medicine or systems outside of ourselves to AID in healing.
But the critical point is that we’ve totally lost sight of what is happening: the medication and the procedure is NOT what heals us! Things that kill the pathogen are NOT what heal us! What heals us is our OWN IMMUNE SYSTEM, and what we’re clamoring after should be things that SUPPORT OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, teach it how to work again, and do not interfere with its original purpose. Sometimes we need the help of pathogen-killers. But that should be to the purpose of helping the immune system fight them. Too often we get to the point where the medication kills EVERYTHING, including our immune system. Then our “science” becomes detrimental.
Keep the focus INSIDE and what your own body can do. The best doctor is the one who teaches you how to not need a doctor. My doctor’s job is to never have to see me again. Not because I can go buy my own pills online, but because my own body and mind have been taught how to manage its own immune system!
Thoughts and mental patterns matter. They - through hormones, the nervous system, the limbic system, whatever – are PART of our immune system! They are what BUILDS our immune system, our entire life, just as much as what we ate, what germs we were exposed to, and what medications we took. That cannot be ignored, or the body will never heal.
Healing comes from the immune system. If you ignore part of the immune system – the mind – can you ever really heal? Or will you relapse until you've learned to address it? It will not be ignored. That's the pattern. Your life will tell you the same things over and over until you stop running and LISTEN. If you're hearing the same story over and over... you didn't get the message yet.
Thousands of people are flocking to this forum desperate for answers. When someone says they are in remission or cured, they are overwhelmed with messages asking What did you do?!?! How do I do it?!?!?! And when that person says, “You have to take control of your healing and your mind,” instead of thanking them for their help, they get attacked for being offensive…
Think about that. Crucifying your own savior. Mind blown.
All the way out in Oz, Dorothy finds she had the power to go home all along. What do we conclude, that the stupid b***h shoulda just clicked her heels in the first place? No. She met people along the way and learned deep secrets. It wasn’t about HER getting HOME, it was about the journey, and it was about ALL of them, each finding what they sought. Some of us are Dorothy needing home. Some of us are Scarecrow needing a brain. Some of us are Tinman needing a heart. Some of us are Lion needing courage. Just because Dorothy tells you the Yellow Brick Road leads to Home, don’t attack her because you’re still looking for your brain, heart, or courage. GO WITH HER! Healing is for everyone!
Very well said!
