Self-fulfilling prophecy: “A self-fulfilling prophecy is a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to become true, by the very terms of the prophecy itself.” Source: Wikipedia. “…causing something to happen by believing it will come true.” Source: Urban Dictionary. When thinking about life, and Parkinson’s, and fear, and FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real), I realized that most people’s self-fulfilling prophecies involve negative things. So, today, let’s explore making recovery your POSITIVE SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY!
Their way, that is, the Western Medicine view of Parkinson’s: You have a progressively degenerative neurological disease for which there is no cure. Their treatment plan is to give you medications or brain surgery to assist you in tolerating the disease for the rest of your life as their view is that you cannot recover from this disease, so the best they offer you is to try to make the rest of your life more tolerable while you progressively degenerate. Their view is that there is no point in trying to recover because the prognosis is that you cannot recover. If you accept their view, then this is your self-fulfilling prophecy: Whatever unpleasantness that occurs in your physical being from your Parkinson’s diagnosis until your death is a reflection that your Parkinson’s is getting worse…and you are filled with fear.
Our way, that is, the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® view of Parkinson’s: Parkinson’s is a symptom of your life out of balance (physically, mentally, and spiritually), and the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery™ is a cure. Our treatment plan is to work on your physical body to heal your organs, work on your mind to calm your emotions and calm your adrenaline-driven mind, and to work on your spirit to reconnect with the soul and open your dopamine faucet for full dopamine flow and finalization of full recovery. Our view is that there is a point in trying to recover because the prognosis is that if you are doing the Recipe, you can recover. If you accept our view, then this is your self-fulfilling prophecy: If you are doing the Recipe, then you heading toward your full recovery, so whatever unpleasantness that occurs in your physical being is necessary for your recovery whether you understand it or not, or like it or not…it is a reflection of your movement toward recovery, and you are filled with faith and hope.
The “way” you accept, theirs or ours, is a choice. Here are some things to assist you in choosing our way…Recovery:
Howard did the Recipe and fully recovered.
Marie did the Recipe and fully recovered.
Pratima did the Recipe and fully recovered.
(Nobody who has followed their way ever has recovered).
Many of you who are doing the Recipe are seeing signs that you are moving toward recovery.
The path toward recovery is filled with faith, hope, compassion, gratitude, acceptance, vulnerability, happiness and joy; don’t you want to replace the negative emotions in your mind with these positive emotions in your heart?
The path toward recovery teaches you to accept yourself, to be kind to yourself, to be compassionate to yourself, and that this is not selfish…it is necessary. It leads to having an open heart as you accept others, and are kind and compassionate toward others.
If you set your sights on the positive outcome of the path toward recovery, and you do the things in the Recipe necessary for your recovery, then you create the self-fulfilling prophecy of recovery. Once you create a self-fulling prophecy of recovery, then you are prepared to adopt this affirmation:
“I am doing the Recipe and heading toward my full recovery, so I accept that whatever unpleasantness occurs in my physical being is necessary for my recovery whether I understand it or not, or like it or not…it is a reflection of my movement toward recovery, and I am filled with faith and hope. I am fearless. I am recovery! Oh, yes, AND I AM WORTH IT!!!”
Yes you are…you are recovery, and YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!
All my best,
NOTE: WORKSHOPS UPDATE. The Boston workshop formerly scheduled to take place on July 27, 2013 is being postponed. Many of the places I contacted only can rent space to a non-profit company, some are doing renovations, and some are not available; late September looks like a better time to have the Boston Workshop. The Los Angeles workshop will take place on August 24, 2013. Marianne, a woman who I am coaching, has graciously offered the Community Room at her apartment complex as the venue for my Los Angeles workshop. Click here for more information and registration.
