2 Patterns of Thinking That Create Disease

Your Patterns of Thinking Either Create Health or Disease

I remember when I was sick, and desperately searching for answers.  I tried every diet.  My linen closet was over taken with expensive supplements that didn’t seem to help much.  Our bank account drained from all the books I was buying, practitioners I was seeing, among other things.  Deep down I knew I wasn’t destined to be a sick person.  That just wasn’t me.  I use to have so much fun.  I loved life.  I use to be happy and free from any worry about my health.

I found myself stuck on the couch, researching and hoping to just FIND THE ANSWER.

On that journey, I started finding a lot of books and experts saying that I needed to release stress and change my thoughts.  Really?  I can just THINK myself out of an auto-immune disease?  I could THINK myself out of fatigue?  Anxiety?  Stress?  Right.  I figured, I would worry about the woo-woo stuff and my thoughts when I feel better.  Right now, I’ve got a disease to reverse.  I didn’t think there was any possible way to heal my body with my thoughts.  So, I kept on doing what I had been doing for the past 8 years - changing my diet, upping supplements, reading, researching, stressing, hoping things would just shift.  

 

When you do what you've always done, you will continue to get what you've always gotten.  My health didn't improve.  

 

I got to this point of rock bottom desperation that made me crack open in a way I never imagined.  I didn’t care how woo-woo this stuff was anymore.  I needed to get better, and I was willing to do whatever it took.

 

So began the journey

 

I started working regularly with an energy medicine practitioner (doing much of the same work I do now for clients).  I put affirmations up on my bathroom mirror.  I started thinking and acting like I was already better.  I did small things every day that made me feel happy – going for walks, dancing with my kids, spending intentional time with friends and my husband. 

Slowly, I was letting go of the wall of rules I had built up around myself to support illness. 

 

2 Main Patterns of Thinking That Create Disease

Here are 2 of the main thoughts I had built into my life that supported illness.  These were core beliefs that I was basing my life around.  Which kept me stuck, no matter how great my diet was or how many supplements I took or how much I exercised. 

 

1.      There is something wrong with me.  FYI, this is a huge lie.  One that is, unfortunately, underlying most of the alternative health world right now.  Marketing makes us think that there is something wrong with us that needs fixing – if that’s the cover of Cosmo magazine telling you how to lose a dress size in a week, or a high profile alternative health guru selling a supplement, diet, or product.  The underlying message is still there same.  There is something wrong with you, and you need to do something about it.  It’s a lie.  If we fall trap to it, it can take you down a long dark rabbit hole of illness.  Trust me, I've done it.

2.     I’m not good enough.  Another big lie that undermines our health, happiness, and vitality.  You ARE good enough.  Simple as that.  Believe it, and surround yourself with people who support that idea too.  If not, your life is going to feel like one shortcoming after another.  You are worthy of thriving health.  You are worthy of joy, and laughter, and community, and success.  Joy is your divine birthright.  Period. 

 

It doesn’t matter when or where or why I started believing these negative affirmations.  But, somewhere along the journey, I started to internalize that there was indeed something wrong with me.  I mean, why else wouldn’t the miracle diets and supplements not be working for me?  I thought there was some mystery I needed to solve about my health.

 

Actually, all I had to do was to start thinking, believing, and acting like there was NOTHING wrong with me. 

Within 3 months, after 8 years of being sick, it was all gone.  Change your thoughts and your life will change.

The Unexpected Solution to Healing Your Anxiety

This post is an excerpt from my e-book, Keys To Calm.   

 

 

You Hold The Keys to Your Health 

You are the thoughts you think, the emotions you feel, and the choices you make.  And it happens in that order – you have a thought, you feel an emotion, you make a choice.  So, how do we change our life?  We change our choices.  To changes our choices, we must change our emotions, and to change our emotions, we must change our thoughts.  It all starts with your thoughts. 

“The fact that the mind rules the body is, in spite of its neglect by biology and medicine, the most fundamental fact which we know about the process of life.” –Franz Alexander, M.D.

The key to healing anxiety (or any other health concern) is locked in your thoughts.  The only limit to your healing is your beliefs. 

 

Your physical life is a manifestation of your predominant thoughts.  Sometimes when a client of mine realizes that their thoughts are a large contributor to their suffering, they feel even more fear. 

Because, what’s coming next?  

How do I control my negative thoughts? 

What if all you seem to do is complain and find fault in yourself? 

Good news!  A positive thought is more powerful than a negative thought, period.  No matter how long you’ve been thinking negative thoughts, you can change that today. 

Healing cannot occur when we are focused on what is wrong.  It only occurs when we shift our intention to what is right.  Instead of focusing on being sick, focus on being well.  Right this minute, you can initiate healing in your body. 

Ok, great, now what?

How do you change these old beliefs and thoughts?  

The first step is to become aware of them.  Notice when you are complaining, thinking negative thoughts, or acting out of an old belief system.  

When you notice it happening, stop.  

Breathe.  

Give yourself compassion - you are always doing the best you know how!  

Put your hand on your heart, and repeat, "I recognize what I feel.  It's safe to feel the way I do.  I now lovingly release these negative thoughts and beliefs.  I am worthy.  I am enough.  I now welcome love, joy, health, and prosperity into my life."

In Keys to Calm, much more insight around this topic is provided.  I also provide you with a list of negative thoughts and belief patterns that create anxiety.  I also offer you a new thought pattern (affirmation) that can heal anxiety and ill health.  

Thriving health is so much closer than you can imagine.  

It's right behind your fear.  

All it takes is a change of perception.

Your Path to Radiant Living

I have clients in my office on a daily basis who are suffering from anxiety and/or depression.  I feel safe saying that almost everyone has suffered from anxiety or depression, is suffering right now, or knows someone who is.  If you, or someone you know struggles with anxiety or depression, this post is designed specifically for you.  Your struggles are close to my heart.

I suffered from both of these emotional imbalances – anxiety and depression - for several years.  I had panic attacks that would put me on the floor and keep my husband home from work.  Depression that was mild enough to keep me out of the doctor's office, but severe enough that my life felt heavy and overwhelming.  Both of these struggles can wreak havoc on an individual’s mental, emotional, and physical life – as well as entire families. 

My journey to healing involved many different diets, supplements, naturopaths, homeopaths, chiropractors, energy healers, self care, tears, money, frustration, and patience.  My journey was complicated for a very long time.  Then, all of a sudden things became very simple.  Healing happened almost overnight. 

Healing doesn’t have to be hard.  Sometimes we believe that getting better takes a lot of time, a lot of money, and a lot of work.  It doesn’t.  It can be as simple as a change in perspective.

Our bodies are divinely created and know exactly how to heal.  If you are alive and reading this blog, your body is in a state of healing.  Despite how “bad” things might seem on the outside.  Our bodies are always working hard to support us and keep us healthy, despite all of the self criticism was give ourselves.  All it takes is a few little tweaks of our minds and emotions to shift into peace.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our stories of “getting better” that we never get better.

Illness is simple and so is health.  The science of vitality continually proves itself over and over.  What we think in our minds and then feel in our bodies, creates our physical reality. 

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.  Thoughts are things!  And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.” –Napoleon Hill

Your health truly does begin in your mind.  If we realize how much power our thoughts have over our circumstances, we could guard our thoughts and keep them positive as our top priority.

Our thoughts drive and create emotion.  Emotion is what causes us to make decisions.  Those decisions turn into our reality.  Specific thoughts turn on different emotions, and different emotions produce different outcomes. 

I am going to share with you a flow chart that came to me a few months back.  I have been sitting with it, implementing it in my life, and preparing it for the world.  I am so excited to now share this with you!  This is truly the simplest path to radiant living.  

We have our information input at the top – this is the part of life that we don’t have much control over.  This is something we read on social media, a news story, a conversation with a friend or spouse, the weather, other peoples actions, and even past experiences.  Have you ever been on facebook scrolling through your feed feeling good, and then happen upon a heartbreaking story and it shifts your whole vibe for the day?  Have you ever woken up happy and ready for the new day, to turn around and have one of the kids wake up grouchy and it brings you right down with them?  All of these examples represent “Information Input” – or, outside circumstances we cannot control. 

“You have power over your mind – not outside events.  Realize this, and you will find strength.” –Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor

We cannot control the information input, but we can control the next step on the chart – our thoughts!  Did you realize you have complete control of what thoughts you think?!  You do!  Until we begin to train our minds, it can feel like they are out of our control and just ‘pop’ up out of nowhere.  THIS is the key to your health (and prosperity, and joy, and relationships, and career…).  Our thoughts directly create our emotions, and our emotions directly create our reality.  How do we control our thoughts?  Meditation, visualization, affirmations, and awareness.  I discuss the chart and ways to change our thoughts in the video below.
 

 

Our thoughts, no matter what they are, funnel into 3 main emotions

Depression
Thoughts, conscious or unconscious, that center around not being good enough funnel into that “drained” feeling.  It’s that feeling of overwhelm that freezes us in our tracks.  Those feelings funnel down to depression, which funnels down to stress, which funnels down to disease

Anxiety
Thoughts, conscious or unconscious, that center around fear and being unsupported will bring racing thoughts, excess energy, and a burned out nervous system.  That feel of fear creates anxiety, which creates stress, which creates disease

Love and Healing
Here’s the good part.  Thoughts, conscious or unconscious, that center around an open heart full of love and trust, will bring feelings of peace and compassion.   Those feelings create empowerment and joy, which create health in all areas of your life. 

One more thought about thoughts
Thoughts are just that – thoughts.  They come and go.  Do not place any judgment around whatever comes into your mind.  Don’t take your thoughts so seriously.  Bring awareness to the patterns and then lovingly change them if you want to.

Love is your first line of defense against anxiety, depression, or any other physical, mental, and emotional imbalance.  Love is the greatest tool we have at our disposal.  Loving thoughts are more powerful than any food you eat, supplement you take, or book you read. 

We cannot change the information that comes at us, but we can change our thoughts around it.  Change your thoughts, change your emotions, change your life.
