In “Fighting Parkinson’s, and your personal vibration” we discussed the beneficial ripple effect of your positive vibration out into the world. Today, we will take this positive vibration to the next level.
When diagnosed with Parkinson’s, here is what most of us are told: You have a progressively degenerative disease of which we do not know the cause and for which there is no cure. We can give you medications to help with your symptoms, but they do not help you get better.
As a result of this diagnosis and prognosis, many people’s personal vibration becomes fear, anger, emotional stress, and anxiety. They feel that there is no chance of recovery, and this negative vibration becomes their ripple out to the Universe.
I chose to look at Parkinson’s this way: Parkinson’s was a symptom that my life had become out of balance, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I would do the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® to bring balance back into my life, and once I balanced my soul, mind, and body, the symptom known as Parkinson’s would go away.
In September of 2012, I wrote about it like this:
“Three years ago today, I got my final wake up call, my body’s final notification to make me sit up and take notice that there was something dreadfully wrong with me…tremors. As I pointed out recently, for the previous 7 or 8 months, I had received polite, and not-so-polite, notifications that my physical body was falling into disrepair. I chose to ignore these. Tremors got my attention. I have discussed that the symptoms are not the problem, but instead, they are the messages that there is a problem, so we have to look behind them as to why we have them. This morning I realized that Parkinson’s is a symptom…a message that says, ‘your life is out of balance.’
Parkinson’s…the symptom reflecting a life out of balance. Physically, you are off balance. You move slowly and cautiously, often looking down instead of forward. What does that do? It puts your body in a posture that makes it virtually impossible to walk balanced. Your neck is bent, your spine is bent, the fluid in your semicircular canals is moved, and your visual frame of reference (important for balance) is your legs or the floor, and you acquire what is often referred to as a Parkinson’s gait. Mentally, you then become off balance because you are afraid of falling or freezing, and you are afraid of the future with Parkinson’s. This is right where Parkinson’s wants you…not living in the moment, but instead living in the past (getting Parkinson’s) and being fearful of the future (life with long-term Parkinson’s). Spiritually, you give up hope that you ever will get better. At that point Parkinson’s is winning.
Essentially, when you stare at your legs and feel unbalanced, you are looking at the past. When you feel unbalanced, you fear the future. How can you move forward in life in a balanced manner if you are staring backwards and it makes you fearful of where you are going? Faith.
Faith in yourself that you are the cure to Parkinson’s, and that you can see your recovery through to the end. Yes, that carries a lot of responsibility, but you have help. You have the Recipe for Recovery. The Recipe for Recovery is your road map to bring your soul, mind, and body back into balance.
Over time in my recovery, I came to see Parkinson’s as a grand opportunity to fix the things in my life that had gone out of balance. The Recipe provided me with the physical tools to re-balance my body, the mental tools to calm my mind and re-balance my emotions, and the spiritual tools to re-balance my soul and find again the essence of who I am.
Am I grateful for having had Parkinson’s? Yes. Through that bump in the road in a life already out of balance, Parkinson’s stood as a bump at a fork in the road leaving me two choices: 1. Fix the imbalances in my life and it would go away; and 2. Do not fix the imbalances in my life and it would stay with me forever. I chose the road less traveled, I had no plan B, and every day I did the Recipe for Recovery to find balance in my life. And every day that I awoke with Parkinson’s still there, it was a reminder I still had more work to do.
However, in the end, when I awoke on June 12, 2010 with no Parkinson’s, I knew it was not coming back — I had re-balanced my soul, mind, and body, and I no longer needed the message or symptoms known as Parkinson’s as a reminder that I had more work to do.
I was finished with that part of my life, and I am grateful for that as well.”
It has been nearly nine years since being cured from Parkinson’s. I stopped doing the physical part of the Recipe the day of my full recovery. The mental and spiritual parts became who I am, my real self, and how I live my life…the constantly positive personal vibration rippling out to the Universe.
You can send this same positive ripple out to the Universe with your personal vibration. I know you can.
Okay, let’s all chant this together:
“Parkinson’s is a symptom that my life has become out of balance, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I am doing the Recipe to bring balance back into my life, and once I balance my soul, mind, and body, the symptom known as Parkinson’s will go away.”
Excellent! I can feel your positive vibrations rippling through the Universe, and they feel glorious! Good for all of you!!!
You are worth it!
All my best,
