Fighting Parkinson’s, and 27 months symptom free

Twenty-seven months went by in a blink. There were many times that the nine months fighting the disease seemed like an eternity. I have learned that much of this is based upon our attitude, where our mind is. And, much of where our mind is finds itself fluctuating on how we are feeling physically and spiritually. Our minds can assist our full recovery, and our minds can deter our full recovery. Getting control of our minds and keeping control of our minds (and emotions), not only helps us in reaching full recovery, but also helps us in reaching 27 months of being symptom free without even noticing along the way how long it has been.

Our minds take us out of the moment. Our hearts put us back into the moment.

Our minds look at increasing symptoms and have fear. Our hearts look at increasing symptoms and feel compassion.
Our minds say, “You are getting worse.” Our hearts feel, “I am getting better.”
Our minds say, “Why are you doing the physical part of the Recipe for Recovery? You know Parkinson’s is incurable.” Our hearts feel, “I am doing the Recipe for Recovery because I feel that Parkinson’s is curable. I am worthy this recovery.”
Our minds say, “Why are you meditating? It is pointless.” Our hearts feel, “When I meditate, I quiet my mind and often feel my symptoms decrease.”
Our minds say, “Why are you doing spiritual work? You know there is nothing there to help you.” Our hearts feel, “I am doing spiritual work and I absolutely feel I am getting help.”
Our minds say, “You are being selfish spending all this time on your recovery.” Our hearts feel, “I feel I am worth putting in whatever time it takes me to recover from Parkinson’s. I am not doing the Recipe to the detriment of anybody. Doing something for myself that does not interfere with anybody else is not selfish on my part. Somebody telling me to stop doing the Recipe because they do not believe Parkinson’s is curable is selfish on their part.”
Our minds say, “You will never recovery.” Our hearts feel, “I have the power to heal myself!” “And I am!”

Here are some thoughts, or mantras, for quieting our minds and opening our hearts and our dopamine for full recovery (each of these is linked to a post explaining them more in-depth):

Faith. Attitude. Action. Progress.
My faith is more powerful than other people’s beliefs.
Acceptance. Faith. Action. Recovery.
I am a tortoise, slowly recovering and enjoying the journey.
When faced with things in life, I choose to say “okay.”

Our minds take us out of the moment. Our hearts put us back into the moment.

Be in the moment. Do not think about your recovery. You can see in what is written above, the more you think about your recovery, the more your mind says it is not possible. Also, you can see from what is written above, the more you feel your recovery, the more you are in the moment of actually experiencing your recovery.

Our minds take us out of the moment. Our hearts put us back into the moment.

Our minds look at the past with anger and frustration and resentment and stress and anxiety.
Our minds look at the future with fear and uncertainty, which causes FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real).
Our hearts live in the now, fully accepting what is occurring in the moment.

And, what is occurring in the moment? YOUR RECOVERY…FEEL IT AND LIVE IT. BE YOUR RECOVERY!!!

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

    Howard —

    I am writing you from Lake Como,Italy where Kipra and I are vacationing — and decided to check emails.

    What a perfect blog — such a synchronicity. Background: as you know it was only a couple of months or so ago that I got in my soul that I really could heal myself, that I knew what to do and who to be. Then, about 3 weeks ago, I “fell off the wagon,” and began having gnawing feelings I was a fraud. Arrrgggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh. And what a cloud it cast over me, our holiday. AND, yesterday, I regained my certainty, faith, and conviction. Yahooooooo. And today your blog arrived and the sun is shining, brightly. THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE FOR ALL OF US.

    Love, Barry
