Happy New Year, 2024!!! As we wound down 2023, a year of many changes, we closed that door to the past. It is January 1, 2024, and the sun is rising to awaken us to 2024 and the possibilities that lie ahead. For each and every one of you, this is a new year, a new breath of fresh air, and a new outlook on your life and your recovery: 2024…the year of knowing!
What do I mean by knowing? Let’s begin with the dictionary definition:
a. to be aware of the truth or factuality of, to be convinced or certain of.
b. done in full awareness or consciousness.
In September of 2009, I was aware that the truth for my life, for which I was certain, done in full awareness and consciousness of my life and with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, that I would be having a full recovery from Parkinson’s some day in the future. Simply put, I decided that it was my TRUTH, and it became my KNOWING.
It looked like this:
“I know that some day in the future, I will be having a full recovery from Parkinson’s, on God’s schedule, not my schedule.” And then, I threw that knowing into the future and never worried about. Instead, I did something completely different for me…I focused on “what and I doing now to support what I know will occur in the future.”
Okay, your turn:
“I know that some day in the future, I will be having a full recovery from Parkinson’s, on God’s (The Universe’s/The Energy’s/The Source’s/_____’s, [whoever you pray to’s]) schedule, not my schedule.” And now, throw that knowing into the future and focus on what you are doing today to support your knowing that you will have your full recovery some day in the future.
As the year progresses, I will continue to work on this theme of knowing. As I have discussed in the past, I saw Parkinson’s as a symptom that my life had gotten out of balance physically, mentally, and spiritually. So, I needed to know that getting back to being my authentic self in what I was doing, what I was thinking, and how I was feeling would be my way of knowing that the blessing of a full recovery would be mine one day.
This was not easy because I had become accustomed to the me I had become, the out-of-balance me. However, the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® was my road map to bring balance back into my life, to help me know the I would be cured one day, and as a result, I have been cured from Parkinson’s for 13.5 years.
Let’s begin slow and easy for each of you:
“Today is January 1, 2024. It is a new year, and I am grateful for the continuing opportunity to have my life and to head toward my Parkinson’s full recovery. Today is the day I make a commitment to myself to know that I am going to have my cure one day in the future!”
Please post a comment below by copying and pasting these words:
My brain cells are alive. My dopamine reservoir is full. I am doing the Recipe, and my recovery from Parkinson’s is happening. I know that some day in the future, I will be having a full recovery from Parkinson’s. I am extraordinary. I am recovery. I AM WINNING! AND, I AM WORTH IT!!!
Each and every one of you is winning and you are worth it!!!
Happy New Year! 2024…the year of knowing!!
All my best,
