On January 1, 2023, I announced this year as the year of change. I mentioned that I realized that in order to have my full recovery, I needed to change, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Today, we wrap up the first month of change.
If you have fear of your Parkinson’s getting worse, your fearful thought needs to change for you to heal and have your recovery. I have given a lot of consideration to self-fulfilling prophecies. Almost always, a person is filled with fear that what they do not want will happen. This has three main negative effects:
1. The person stops doing the positive things that the person was doing.
2. The person engages in behavior detrimental to their health and well-being.
3. The person wants to be correct in their assessments in life and never wants to say they were wrong about anything.
Number 3 is terribly detrimental to one’s health and well-being. When you have a negative, fearful, self-fulfilling prophecy, the only way you can be correct in your assessment and not be wrong is for the thing you do not want to happen to actually happen. Then, as I am certain many of you have heard from others from time to time, you can say, “See. I just knew that bad thing was going to happen.”
So, the next time your mind says, “I am afraid that I am getting worse,” please have the awareness that in order to be correct in your assessment, you will have to get worse.Then, you can say, “See. I just knew I was going to get worse.”
The above scenario is the OLD YOU. Change means being the NEW YOU, AUTHENTIC YOU, and providing yourself a positive self-fulfilling prophecy! Then, when you prove yourself correct, it will be that you were correct about something positive that you wanted. It looks like this:
“I am looking forward to good health.”
“I am looking forward to well-being.”
“I am looking forward to my full recovery.”
“I am looking forward to reading the blog post, ‘Fighting Parkinson’s, and (insert your name) is symptom free!'”
“I am looking forward to ___________.”
When you are “looking forward” to something occurring, you already are setting the positive wheels in motion of the positive outcome you wish to see…a positive self-fulfilling prophecy.
The Western Medicine view of Parkinson’s: You have a progressively degenerative neurological disease for which there is no slowing, halting, reversing, or curing. If you accept their view, then this is your self-fulfilling prophecy: Whatever unpleasantness that occurs in your physical being from your Parkinson’s diagnosis until your death is a reflection that your Parkinson’s is getting worse, and you are filled with fear.
Our way, that is, the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® view of Parkinson’s: Parkinson’s is a symptom of your life out of balance (physically, mentally, and spiritually), and the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® slows, halts, reverses, and cures the disease itself. Our treatment plan is to work on your physical body to heal your organs, work on your mind to calm your emotions and calm your adrenaline-driven mind, and to work on your spirit to reconnect with your soul and open your dopamine faucet for full dopamine flow and finalization of full recovery.
Our view is that there is a point in trying to recover because the prognosis is that if you are doing the Recipe, you are healing every day and you can recover. If you accept our view, then this is your self-fulfilling prophecy: If you are doing the Recipe, then you heading toward your full recovery, so whatever unpleasantness that occurs in your physical being is necessary for your recovery whether you understand it or not, or like it or not…it is a reflection of your movement toward recovery, and you are filled with faith and hope.
The “way” you accept, theirs or ours, is a choice. Here are some things to assist you in choosing our way…RECOVERY:
Seven of us are fully recovered from Parkinson’s.
Over 500 people doing the Recipe have posted comments about slowing, halting, reversing, and curing their Parkinson’s.
(Nobody who has followed the Western Medicine way ever has slowed, halted, reversed, or cured the disease).
Many of you who are doing the Recipe are seeing signs that you are moving toward recovery.
The path toward recovery is filled with faith, hope, compassion, gratitude, acceptance, vulnerability, happiness and joy; don’t you want to replace the negative emotions in your mind with these positive emotions in your heart?
The path toward recovery teaches you to accept and love yourself, to be kind to yourself, to be compassionate to yourself, and that this is not selfish…it is necessary. It leads to having an open heart as you accept others, and are kind and compassionate toward others as well.
If you set your sights on the positive outcome of the path toward recovery, and you do the things in the Recipe necessary for your recovery, then you create the self-fulfilling prophecy of recovery. Once you create a self-fulling prophecy of recovery, then you are prepared to prove yourself correct as you adopt this affirmation:
“I am doing the Recipe and heading toward my full recovery, so I accept that whatever unpleasantness occurs in my physical being is necessary for my recovery whether I understand it or not, or like it or not…it is a reflection of my movement toward recovery, and I am filled with faith and hope. I am fearless. I am recovery! AND, I AM WORTH IT!!!”
Okay! Who is ready to change and to announce your positive self-fulfilling prophecy and prove yourself correct in your own Parkinson’s recovery?
YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!
All my best,
