We all have grown up with a lot of conditioning and programming due to the influences of those around us; our parents, our cultural roots, our educational upbringing or the society in which we were raised. As a result of these influences, we have all developed our own unique belief systems that determine how our life is created each and every day. When I was diagnosed with M.S. in 2003, I spent two years in contemplation of my life path and the factors that had influenced me. You might say the the disease woke me up and acted as a catalyst for my own personal transformation. In fact, I have written a book on this experience and I plan on self- publishing this year. The M.S. was a huge gift because it started a path of self search for me that was deeply insightful and awakened a state of joy in myself that did not exist before my diagnosis.
What I didn’t realize is that this state of personal transformation is happening to a lot of people all over the world. I have realized that almost everyone is waking up in their own lives in their own way; this is part of the evolutionary shift in people’s consciousness well underway right now that will culminate in the year 2012. I am seeing the shift in all of my patients in different ways. I don’t share my own personal beliefs about this state of awakening because that is not my job as a naturopath to talk about this sort of thing. I may be a silent observer but I see that people’s hearts are opening more to others in their lives, many are more aware of determining the factors that make their own personal heart sing so that they can live more authentically and most people are doing a lot of self searching. I see that people that are challenged right now whether it be financially, professionally, personally, or with regards to their health are being forced to do a lot of self searching. That is the gift inherent in any challenge- pain whether it be mental, emotional, physical or spiritual is a great motivator. It motivates you to search for the answers to your own well being. Each person’s journey is unique but we all share the need for compassion and understanding from others especially in a difficult time.
In this time, we are being challenged to rewrite our own script for our life. We are not to settle for what we were raised to believe about life or to look to others to validate our own need for self acceptance or belief in ourself. Our basic worthiness must come from within. If you look to the external world to validate you at this time you will likely feel disappointed. You must believe in yourself and your ability to have a better life whether it be financially in terms of abundance, personally in terms of relationships, physically in terms of health and well being and even spiritually whatever that connection looks like to you.
It is time to claim your worthiness, your goodness, your sparkly light, your healthy vibrant self who is capable of accomplishing anything that you set your mind/body/spirit to at this time in your life. The question is how do you want to rewrite your script to reflect more of who you are? How can you live your life more authentically and align yourself internally with your own inherent goodness so that you can share the highest most divine expression of yourself with the world and touch others around you with your love and kindness? I dare you to rewrite your script this year…you can do it!
