As discussed in the previous post, the words “You have Parkinson’s” evoke fear is almost everybody who hears those words. In large part, this is because what follows those words is a blur of words like “incurable,” “progressively degenerative,” “neurological disease,” “don’t know what causes it,” and “our treatment will not slow, halt or reverse the disease.” Fear, hopelessness, despair…those are the feelings on the way home from the neurologist’s office…and fear…all of those feelings are driven by fear. IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THAT WAY. FAITH IS A CHOICE. CHOOSE FAITH, AND CHOOSE TO BE YOUR OWN CURE!!!
“You have Parkinson’s Disease.” (Now, let’s change it up a bit). Suppose your neurologist followed those words with this, “Parkinson’s is a symptom of your life out of balance, and you can repair the imbalances and be cured! There is a protocol called the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, and if you do it every day, you will be cured!” Do you now have hope? Do you now have faith? Do you now work on your cure? And what if your neurologist added this, “Oh, yes, I need to let you know that along the way toward your cure, there will be times when it will appear that you are getting worse because your symptoms will be appearing worse, but please do not worry, it is part of the recovery process, and you have nothing to fear. Have faith, and you will be cured.” Do you choose fear when you face what appears to be a worsening condition, or do you have faith in your cure?
The reason I give you this example is to show you that the fear you have in your mind about what is going on with your Parkinson’s is a self-created fear…it is the FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) that I have spoken about in the past. In the paragraph directly above, all I have done is taken what I have been telling you for the last 3 and 1/2 years since my recovery and hypothetically put those words in your neurologist’s mouth. Suddenly, you have no fear. Why? Because you chose to have no fear.
Currently, you are doing the Recipe, but instead of listening when I explain in great detail why you need not have fear when symptoms appear worse, https://www.fightingparkinsonsdrugfree.com/2012/05/16/fighting-parkinsons-and-trusting-in-your-recovery/, you look to the gloom and doom you received at the neurologist’s office and choose to have fear. Yes, choose to have fear. If you are doing the Recipe every day, then you are curing yourself every day no matter what your symptoms look like and you need not be afraid.
If you are choosing fear each time a symptom appears worse, then you are still engaged in the type of Adrenaline-Mode-fear-based-mind-chatter that helped you get Parkinson’s symptoms to the surface in the first place. Living in this fear prevents recovery. Realize that fear is a creation of your mind, and you are choosing fear.
Fear is the only Parkinson’s symptom that is a choice. That is why I talk about it so much. It is a choice in how you decide to look at your Parkinson’s, your symptoms, and your lives. It is so powerful of a symptom of this disease, that in the midst of improving from a disease the experts say there is no chance of improvement, one bad day, one extra pain, one extra stiffness, one increase in tremors…one unfavorable change in any symptom causes people to stop their improvement dead in its tracks and say, “I guess I am getting worse just like the doctors said I would.”
That interpretation is a choice, and the choice is fear. And it leads to FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real). And that leads you down the path that causes your own fears and FEARs to come true.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY. MAKE A DIFFERENT CHOICE……….
How about if you choose to interpret the events like this: “I trust myself in knowing what I am doing is the correct thing. I trust myself that I correctly have interpreted all of my improvements. I am willing to surrender control of having to fully understand every nuance or every energetic change taking place inside my body, and I am empowering myself to look at everything I am doing as long-term progress in my being cured from Parkinson’s without being fearful of the day-to-day changes that I do not fully understand. I have faith, and my faith defeats my fear.”
That interpretation is a choice, and the choice is faith. Faith leads to staying with the Recipe on your path toward your cure. Faith leads you down the path that causes your cure to come true.
Choose faith over fear and visualize your future cure.
Say this affirmation with me: “Parkinson’s is a symptom of my life out of balance, and I can repair the imbalances and be cured. I refuse to allow appearances in my physical symptoms to make me fearful. Fear is a choice. Faith is a choice. I will choose Faith. I will be cured. I am worth it!”
You are worth it!
Have a happy and joyous holiday season.
All my best,
