Time and Pain
I encourage you on your journey to health.
You have worked hard, you have had many battles, and you see light at the end of the tunnel.
But what happens when we hit a bump in the road? When memories and symptoms of our old sickness come into our bodies.
Does this mean you aren’t healing? Not at all.
I had Lyme disease for a long period of time, and every once in a while, I have a memory or feeling that reminds of the infection.
This does not discourage me, but literally makes me happy...because I know I’m healing.
These are memories like rungs on a latter. It’s your journey, your story, and you have to remember where you came from so your gratitude grows and grows. A grateful heart heals.
You body is healing and constantly repairing. If old symptoms or memories trigger your immune system, it is because your immune system is working.
The body CONSERVES energy and chooses to heal parts of your sickness in small increments. Why? Because you have to use some parts of your energy for healing and the other to function in EVERYDAY LIFE.
When the healing body finds pockets of toxins, bad emotions, or hidden infections it goes to clean it up, even after you have felt symptom free for a long time. You now have the energy to heal deeper.
If you are living a healthy lifestyle, eating right, drinking enough water, sleeping, etc., and have an old symptom, know that TODAY is the day that you heal.
I leave you today with this thought from a story of old: “And who knows but that you have come to this position for such a time as this.” ✨
