It is easy to get lost in Parkinson’s Disease. It is confusing…the disease is confusing, the medical profession saying they do not know what causes it is confusing, being told you can’t get better is scary but also confusing, and even holding out hope and faith that you are healing yourself still can be confusing. Sometimes you feel lost. How do you find your way back home?
When you are confronted with Parkinson’s, you can become scared and feel lost, much like how Dorothy felt when she landed in Oz. (For those of you who have not been following the blog for a while, I will occasionally draw references from Dorothy’s adventure). Parkinson’s Disease is a strange territory outside your comfort zone and sometimes you can lose confidence in who you are and what you should do. So, what do you do?
When you are uncertain what to do, like Dorothy, you try to find a path with the faith and hope of finding the answers from somebody on, or at the end of, the path. Along her path, Dorothy asks a scarecrow with no brain what he thinks she should do, and Dorothy asks a tin man with no heart how she should feel, and Dorothy asks a lion with no courage how she should be brave on her journey. Clearly, she has lost confidence in herself…truly she is lost. She is so lost that she is even willing to take a ride from a complete stranger who is supposed to fly her back to twister-ridden Kansas using a hot air balloon.
So, how do you find our way back home? Doing the soul, mind, and body parts of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.
Glynda let Dorothy know that she had the power to get back home all along. She needed to open her heart and repeat: “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home….”
When you finish reading this post, find a comfortable place to sit, set your timer for 5 minutes, and do the following:
1. Close your eyes.
2. Tilt your head back slightly.
3. Smile. (It helps open your heart. Also, when you smile into the world, the world smiles back into you).
4. Silently repeat, “I have the power to heal myself.” “There’s no place like home.” “I have the power to heal myself.” “There’s no place like home.” “I have the power to heal myself.” “There’s no place like home.” (Repeat until your timer goes off).
Look inside yourself and see your heart opening to the joy of life…the joy of being on the path to Parkinson’s recovery. It is true, home is where your heart is.
Look inside your heart and find your way back home.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,

Hey Howard and my fellow Warriors, this is a very truthful and creative post. we all have the power inside all of us. The doctors say there is no cure because they’re looking at the outside when the cure comes from the inside. So, follow the yellow brick road to your heart and be healed.
Thanks Howard for all the latest posts and for warming my heart.
Thanks Tony for keeping supporting us now you’ve recovered.
Going to try to get up earlier tomorrow to fit in some more recipe.
Wow all I can say is wow..
Just what I needed. Tytyty
GRACIAS HOWARD……GRACIAS TONY
Thank you, Howard!
This delightful post fits into an idea I thought of and I have been using for the last few days. In the morning, when I wake up and feel certain body areas vibrating, I rub them off as though I was removing mud or dirt. I then throw this invisible whatever into the air as though it is solid. It instantly stops.
Love and hugs to everyone!
Hi Howard, lovely lovely post. We might have to start calling you Glynda Howard! 🙂 Only teasing lol, I know you will smile. Lovely exercise! Thank you Howard for all the extra posts of late. 🙂
Big Love to all warriors.
Thank you Howard for all your posts and thank you Tony for being there with helpful words for the rest of us Warriors. Thank you thank you thank you!
Thank you Howard .. much needed post .. Thank you. Gratitude
Great analogy Howard, Dorothy always had a power to come back home (by clicking her heels three times) but she was not aware of this. It is similar with PD. People become scared by tremors, stiffness and all the others symptoms of PD that they forget that power healing comes within, from their own heart. Let’s do this together!
