Life hits you sometimes clear between the eyes to let you know that something is amiss. Maybe you don’t feel well and you don’t know why, your stomach feels full and yet, you haven’t eaten, you have sudden body aches and tiredness, people make you agitated, or your thoughts may have become foggy and muddled. You don’t feel aligned with the planet or people and feel like you’re on the outside of the world. You are dying to hear or see a wake-up call or answer and all along it is tapping its lovely little finger patiently waiting for you to notice.
BOOM. It hits. (The wake-up call comes….)
I hear this every day.
Someone emails me, comments on my blog, calls me or stops me the street. “I can’t believe this is happening to me…”, “I can’t believe my husband was diagnosed with this…”, “Can you believe it? She was told she has cancer? I can’t believe it!!”, “This just came from nowhere. I have no idea how I got this (disease)”.
Well here’s the honest truth: All along these chronic illnesses have been brewing and cultivating within you for years. Due to lifestyle and food/nutrition choices, we manifest these internal maladies that finally make us notice them by coming outward and bullishly pushing their way into our lives and to ignore them is impossible and only makes it worse. They aren’t going away quietly. The sad part is that it usually takes a doctor to tell us the bad news because, after all, they know best. Right? We are handed a death sentence from them (“It’s irreversible…”, “You need to take this drug now for the rest of your life”, “No, changing how you eat won’t help”).
We all try to do the right thing in life and live the best life we can. We eat as best as we know how. We are happy the best way we know how. We are kind the best way we know how. We are generous the best way we know how. We do everything the best we can. Nothing more and nothing less and in THIS moment in time, we need to be kind and honest with ourselves and admit that we are okay and to accept our present state and move forward. Our lives are playing out exactly the way they are supposed to be moving. To think anything different would be resisting our present moment and causing us anguish and turmoil.
My message is to inspire others to TAKE HOLD of our lives, our health, our bodies and our souls and wake up to the delicious, joyful, happy people that we all are. It is possible.
Are you living your life yet?
