I belong to several health related forums online. Recently I have been made more and more aware of the plight of many young people with young families who are suffering from ill health. Many of these families are suffering together and their whole lives are affected by their incapacity. As a health professional my instinct is to want to help them, but something tells me that in most cases this is virtually an impossible task.
The most important lesson I have learned from this is in regard to my own health situation. The fact that I have recently been diagnosed with various health issues has required me to adhere to a special, restricted diet. Although this has posed no real challenge for me, it has alerted me to the fact that I am somewhat obsessed with what I eat. My attention is focused solely on my lack of full health and my determination to do something about it. At no time do I think about myself as whole and well. I do of course want to be whole and well but that is something in the future.
I have come to the sudden realization that this in itself is an unhealthy approach to life and I need to find a healthy alternative. As a result of various coincidences in the last week I have found myself listening to the videos of Abraham Hicks.
Esther and Jerry Hicks are an amazing couple who, though a series of events over 20 years ago found themselves instruments in the process of leading people to wholeness through the collective voice of Abraham and the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction basically teaches that we attract what we think about. So if we are constantly thinking about our ill health then that is what we will get. We somehow have to change the way we think, we need a healthy alternative to our normal way of viewing our health. A way of taking the emphasis away from ill health and focusing on our well-being.
