Last week, I concluded one of my posts: “‘I have the power to heal myself.’ And I did. ‘You have the power to heal yourself.’ And you are. ‘Together we have the power to heal the world.’ This blog regularly is being read in 60 countries, so have no doubt that together we have the power to heal the world.” Today, let’s focus on “‘You have the power to heal yourself.’ And you are.”
To begin, please repeat this phrase until you feel it sink in and you own it: “I have the power to heal myself.” This is something you have to believe if you want to recover from Parkinson’s Disease. Ask yourself these questions, and a simple process of elimination will prove the point:
1. Does my doctor have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
2. Do my medications have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
3. Do my supplements have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
4. Does my physical therapist or massage therapist have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
5. Does my yoga, or Qigong, or Tai Chi, instructor have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
6. Does my Yin Tui Na (FSR) foot holder have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
7. Does Howard Shifke have the power to heal me to recovery? No.
8. Do I have the power to heal myself to recovery? Yes.
So, if we want to recover, we need to look at ourselves and individually say, “I have the power to heal myself!” And we have to know it, and we have to take action to implement it. We need to welcome the responsibility of our recovery and feel empowered that yes, “I have the power to heal myself!” Yes I do!!!
Although I do not have the power to heal you to recovery, I offer you my Recipe for Recovery, my personal road map following my path to recovery. Also, I offer one-on-one coaching for those who want one-on-one personalized guidance in following the Recipe for Recovery, and insight and assistance with the daily ups and downs of dealing with Parkinson’s and dealing with recovery from Parkinson’s.
I am hopeful that by providing the Recipe for Recovery, you feel empowered to scream, “I have the power to heal myself!” This is important because it is you, not me or anybody else, who has to take the responsibility to explore your own Parkinson’s and do something about it if you wish to recover. The feedback I have received privately echoes what people have commented publicly — once we understand that we have the power to heal ourselves and we start down the path to recovery, it becomes very empowering, and “I have the power to heal myself” becomes self-perpetuating.
Why? Because as we do the Recipe for Recovery, we feel ourselves healing from deep within. Some people have expressed it as an emotional shift; some have expressed it as feeling empowered; some people have expressed it as feeling energy circulating in their bodies; some people have expressed it as an improvement in their bowel functions; some people have expressed it as getting back their sense of smell; some people have expressed it as a spiritual awakening; some people couldn’t put words to it but expressed it as that nice feeling you get inside when you know you are doing the right thing. All of these actually say pretty much the same thing: “I have the power to heal myself. I have taken the responsibility to do something about it. I feel empowered by doing this, and I am seeing positive results.”
Quite a few people have expressed to me that what makes sense to them about the Recipe is that all other Parkinson’s “therapies” that they had tried had them relying on somebody else to help them…and the somebody else who was helping them did not believe they could recover from Parkinson’s. With the Recipe, they are relying on themselves, for the first time, in their Parkinson’s recovery, and not only do they believe they will recover, but they are on their path to recovery holding the personal road map of somebody who recovered. How empowering is that?
So, no, I do not have the power to heal you. However, my Recipe for Recovery healed me, and many people have been posting the positive results of how it is healing them on their path to recovery.
As Dr. Sha would say, “If you want to know if a pear is sweet, taste it.” If you want to know if the Recipe for Recovery will work for you as well as those who are doing it, give it a try. Aren’t you worth it?
All my best,
