Fighting Parkinson’s, and 2021…the year of faith! Part 3

I began the year with the announcement of 2021 as the year of faith. FAITH was identified as Feeling Alive In The Heart. Last week, we added Feeling Awake In The Heart. Today, we grow our faith even stronger.

Faith says that you can get better from Parkinson’s. When you have faith in your recovery, then your attitude is an attitude of strength and perseverance. And, with strong faith and a “can do” attitude, you take action by doing the soul, mind, and body recovery of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.

This is FAITH:

Feeling Aware In The Heart!

Aware by definition is having knowledge or perception of a situation or fact.

Feeling aware of what? Your intrinsic nature as a spiritual being. The perception in your heart that your essence is spiritual…spiritual being in a human existence. How about that!

You are not your body…your body is an accumulation of food and drink.
You are not your mind…your mind is an accumulation of thoughts and impressions.
So, if you are not your body and you are not your mind, you must be something else, the something else that is doing the accumulating…your soul.

As relates to PD, your body has physical symptoms, and your mind has fear and anger and frustration and stress and anxiety. Your soul does not have PD. First heal the soul and the mind and body will follow. Once you can let go of the attachment to the body (physical symptoms) and the attachment to the mind (negative emotions) and you can feel safe and secure in your soul, your PD improves because you feel safe and secure in being you, with no self-criticism.

Let go of the attachment to the old perception of who you are (PD and all), and become the new you (no PD), the you that you cannot describe because you are doing and being, not thinking and over-thinking.

Feeling Aware In The Heart!

I have said for a long time that the soul is not impacted by Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is a mind and body disease. The soul healing is how you feel about yourself. I do not feel that you can give a spiritual being a human disease. You cannot give Parkinson’s to the air or cancer to the ocean.

Here is a meditation to assist you in experiencing the awareness that you are a spiritual being. Sit in a quiet spot and meditate:

On the inhale, think, “I am not the body.”
On the exhale, think, “I am not even the mind.”
Repeat for at least 5 minutes.

Feeling Aware In The Heart!

Are you filled with FAITH? Are you feeling aware in the heart? Are you having the perception in your heart that your essence is spiritual? Are you following the Recipe, which is a soul, mind, and body recovery protocol? If your answers are yes, yes, yes, yes, then you are on your way to your full recovery fully supported by the Recipe and your intrinsic spiritual nature. Good for you!

Okay, let’s chant this together for the whole world to hear:

“I am filled with FAITH!

I am Feeling Alive In The Heart!

I am Feeling Awake In The Heart!

I am Feeling Aware In The Heart!

I am worth it!!!”

All my best,

    When I am so tired physically that I think I can’t do the recipe or I am mentally in a woe is me place so I can’t do the recipe, I turn to your words Howard. They always inspire me and provide the encouragement I need. Thank you for being a true hero to me and all of us in recovery.

    Thank you so much Howard for your encouraging support.
    The following mantra from Rudolf Steiner is about the spirital human-being and it’s telling us that we can heal ourselves!
    Meditating this mantra helps me a lot.
    Faith to everyone. Miel from The Netherlands

    In English:
    In you lives the human-being
    That sees God face to face, that’s eternal
    And that’s in the circle of the seven great spirits
    It’s above everything that’s angry or timid in you
    It rules with the forces of the upper world
    And it’s served by the forces of the lower world
    It takes care of its own life and its own health and it can also do this in others
    It can’t be surprised by anything; can’t be befallen by any misfortune; it can’t be confused and can’t be overcome
    It knows the nature of past, present and future things
    It’s in possession of the secret of resurrection and of immortality.

    In German:
    In dir lebt das Menschenwesen
    Das Gott von Angesicht zu Angesicht schauet, das ewig ist,
    Und das im Kreise der sieben grossen Geister ist
    Es ist über allem, was in dir
    zornig oder furchtsam ist
    Es herrschet mit den Kräften der obern Welt
    Und ihm dienen die Kräfte der untern Welt
    Es verfügt über sein eigenes Leben und seine
    eigene Gesundheit und kann das auch bei andern
    Es kann durch nichts überrascht; von keinem Missgeschick
    befallen werden; es kann nicht in Verwirrung gebracht und
    nicht überwunden werden
    Es kennt die Wesenheit des Vergangenen, Gegenwärtigen
    und Zukünftigen
    Es hat das Geheimnis der Erweckung vom Tode und von der
    Unsterblichkeit im Besitz.

    Rudolf Steiner
    Notizblatt ca. 1924
    GA 268, Seelenübungen Band II, Mantrische Sprüche, S. 107: In dir lebt das Menschenwesen.

    Dear Howard,
    I love this. Somehow it struck deep this time and I am seeing the entire world in a new light. Insights: All my hurts and distress are not me. I (my soul) cannot be hurt and I am beautiful. All my physical challenges are not me and are therefore are not worth being scared of. I am not the crazy fearful thoughts that zigzag around my head. They are old habits and messages from the far past that I can disregard. Phew!

    So today as I carried the laundry basket through the property, I passed many birds in bushes and trees and was able to see them clearer and be in awe of them. My awareness was heightened since I was not watching my body or fighting off my fearful mind. I just recited the mantra and was aware of the world.

    Then I had the awareness that if I was not my distressed body and mind, then that was true of all other beings, including a woman I know who often brings up anger for me. For the first time, I see that she is a beautiful soul having her experience as a suffering being.

    Then, back to the mantra. I am not my body, I am not my mind.

      Hi Anne, your lovely post reminded me of one of the simple pleasures that I miss, hanging out the washing on the clothesline outside in the summer. One of the joys that I am looking forward to when I recover. 😊

    Beloved Howard,
    THE ULTIMATE SPIRITUAL TRUTH you are teaching to the community, which is the ultimate reality, while practicing on it, PD RECOVERY, becomes by-product, which is bound, bound to come. This is what my feelings are. Thank you so much ❤️. I BOW MY HEAD TO MY MASTER .

  11. Rick says:

    Thank you Howard for the encouraging words as always. I’ve been following the recovery now for 5 weeks and have been putting in over 2 1/2 hours daily followed by a 40 minute light walk every alternative day ! I do this with a smile on my face and occasional laugh. Yes sometimes I don’t feel like doing this but that’s not an option as I want to recover. I will keep this up until recovery. I can’t thank you enough. Rick from Australia 😀😀😀

  12. Kerry says:

    Just what I needed to read, what a beautiful uplifting post.
    Thank you so much Howard for caring so much about others and contributing to our lives the way you do
    I love your posts.

  13. Henrik Harinamananda Dahlstrom says:

    Hello Howard! This is perfectly in line with what I am learning from my spiritual master A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. He says I am a spirit soul who has a body temporary. The soul is situated in one’s heart and it is filled with opulences. Thank you for the inhale/exhale meditation. I will try it!

  14. Patricia says:

    Spot on Howard -thankyou very much.

  15. Kate says:

    Thank you for these comforting thoughts Howard. We all need to remember that the power to heal is already inside of us… we just need to keep the faith…

  16. Karen In Ireland says:

    Hi Howard, I really enjoyed this post, you are continually inspired by your own powerful soul, as how else would you continue to write the right words at the right time for the majority of your warriors here. Thank you. The formula is so simple if we know, trust and connect with the truth and power of who we are daily, all else will pass along with the fear and separation that created it. The essence of our soul is the cure. 🥰
    I am safe and secure in my soul….. is that the finish line that just came into view……
    Big love to you always coach 😘 love to all my fellow amazing warriors.
    Karen 💕 xx

    Thanks for the great meditation on being a spiritual being! It went straight onto my toolbox.

  18. Rabindar says:

    Another great post, right to the point.
    Howard, you seem to know what we need and always come out with the right encouragement and powerful words to helps us with the recovery.
    Thank you for being there for us.

  19. Pamela Fox Klauser says:

    Great reminder and action steps to keep us moving in the right direction. Thank you for your consistency and your dedication to your recovery.

  20. Ola says:

    Thank you Howard!

    Just a few weeks ago when I was repeating my mantra ‘I know I will be having my full recovery one day in the future’ I experienced a delay, a paused and hesitation (my Heart was not Alive or Awake or Aware) no wonder my mind was in charge 🙁

    For the last few days there is no delay or hesitation I hear my Heart … I can’t express it in words! I have FAITH!!

    Much love,


  21. Rosa says:

    So refreshing and enlightening. You pour your heart in these posts, Howard.
