Fighting Parkinson’s, and let’s play a game, 2020

Okay! We have done this idea before, so this year, it is Let’s Play a Game, 2020! Here we are getting ready for the weekend, and I want to play a game with all of you. It is a self-monitored game, and we can play together for the next week. I will call it the Positive Thinking Only game.

As I have told you many times, you are not your symptoms. Since you are not your symptoms, you need to stop being obsessed with your symptoms. That, my friends, is the challenge of the game. Okay, I did not say it would be an easy game.

Here are the rules: Think positive thoughts, only, about your recovery. When negative thoughts enter your mind about your recovery, send them away. Here is some assistance:
Click here to give them to God or whoever it is to whom you pray.
Click here to bail fear from your boat.

Keep telling yourself, “I am my recovery.” Do not judge your symptoms as better or worse, good or bad; do not judge them at all. Do not consume yourself with what your symptoms are doing; transform those thoughts into acceptance that you are having your recovery. Worrying about the future only makes the symptoms worse and it paints a picture to the Universe that you expect a worse future. Keep your thoughts light and joyful…AND POSITIVE!

Click here for assistance in keeping your thoughts positive.

View your symptoms like this:
Parkinson’s is defined as having certain symptoms. I have Parkinson’s, therefore I have symptoms. When I recover from Parkinson’s, I will have no symptoms. THAT’S IT! They mean nothing more than that you have Parkinson’s, which you already know and already have accepted. THAT’S IT! So, do not be consumed thinking about them. As you can see from the linked post directly above, thinking about symptoms is not the healthy thought to be sending out to the Universe.

You are doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, so whatever is going on in your life and your recovery is necessary in your life and your recovery, so smile, feel joyful, and SEE your recovery. Close your eyes and run or dance or drive your car or swim or ski or jump on the trampoline or play hopscotch with the effervescence of a child. SEE your recovery and open your heart to the joyfulness you will have on the inside as you experience your recovery.

SEE your recovery and feel joy in the journey. Feel the joy now! That joy releases your dopamine and assists you in finishing your recovery. That is what the Positive Thinking Only game helps you accomplish.

Do not wait for your recovery. SEE IT AND BE IT…NOW!!!

Click here and see some of the people with whom you are playing.

That’s the game. Who wants to play? Who is willing to spend the next seven days being joyful in your heart and releasing all negative thoughts and emotions while transforming them into positive thoughts and emotions?

Come on and play. What have you got to lose?

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    Most of my negative thoughts and worries are not directly about my physical Parkinson’s symptoms. I chronically worry about all the complicated paperwork and insurance instruments that come with the fabled modern American lifestyle.

    But wait, that chronic dread of paperwork IS ITSELF A PARKINSON’S SYMPTOM! It’s called Parkinson’s Mind. I can ]load it into a giant canon and fire it into space along with all my other PD symptoms. Yippee – gone. I think I could like this game.

    Sure, the paperwork is still there, but when done a piece at a time without the worry, it becomes a satisfying and rewarding activity.

    So that’s how my game is unfolding.

    Watch out Jules Verne, here I come.

    “… Worrying about the future only makes the symptoms worse and it paints a picture to the Universe that you expect a worse future. Keep your thoughts light and joyful…AND POSITIVE!…”

    You are so right! And it astounds me how many negative thoughts I catch myself thinking. And how fearful I get. I’ll play the game like it’s a lifeline. Thanks!

    Dear Howard,

    Your recent blog is very timely.

    After 8 weeks of doing the recipe, I felt I was losing and beginning of this week I decide to FIGHT BACK with positive thoughts and silent prayers.

    I am ready to play the Positive thought Game.

    Thanks and God bless
