Healing is a process…..it involves Faith, Planning, and Execution. Faith involves belief and prayer. Planning is the map to follow. Execution is the action.
The following are my thoughts on what is needed for a person to ask themselves at the doorway to health, especially if the illness is life-threatening. Here are some of the tools I would use:
1) I would ask myself, “Do I want to live?” Strange as it may seem, it may be surprising how people can lose the will to live.
2) During the healing process, I would be careful of any negative thoughts I was either taking in, or putting out. Energy is like breath…..the caliber and the content of that energy can make a vast difference.
3) You’re never too old. Can you believe that some people think that after a certain age they have no right to live? I recently overheard a conversation where a young teenager said to a man in his seventies, “Hey Pops, will you hurry up and die so there will be some money left for me for social security?” The elderly man replied, and rightfully so, “Up yours!”
4) I would tell the people I love that I love them. It’s just amazing how many of us never say I love you….we just assume that the other person knows. A friend of mine who was having surgery told me that his father came to visit, stuttered, and said, “If anything happens to you, I will stick my head in the oven!” That was the best way my friend’s father could say I love you. My friend replied from his hospital bed, “Dad, I love you too.” Upon hearing this his father said, “Son, men don’t say I love you to each other.”
5) I believe, overall, healing does not involve the physical…..it involves everything else. To heal, to want to live, involves drive and determination. The will to live rises beyond our bodies.
6) Last but not least, the soul and the mind must interlock and become one. The life force is the energy between the core, which is the soul, and the mind, that is the home of thought. The body is the shell that we use here on earth. For the body to heal, the energy between the soul and the mind must stay strong.
My final thought on all this is that miracles can happen. The unexplainable does occur, but it’s nice to give it a helping hand…….
