Never give up on your Body and I promise it will never give up on you. You and your Body are in this to win this!
Healing is a process that unfolds according to its own sacred timeline. Yes, there are things I can do to support this beautiful and sometimes terrifying process, but ultimately I can’t know the exact time or ways in which Health will manifest within me. I do my best, and I surrender the rest.
It can be difficult, the not knowing. When doubt creeps in I can remind myself that while I don’t know exactly when I will be healed, I do that I can. How do I know that? Because of the miraculous healing I’ve already experienced and because I know that others have healed too. Hold on tightly to HOPE, trust that you will heal and you will.
Recently, some incredible healing has manifested. It is so affirming when we have physical proof that our efforts are working! See folks, I’ve started having natural bowel movements. Unless you’ve suffered from chronic and severe constipation, I’m not sure there’s an adequate way to describe my elation here.
I’ve had constipation my whole life, an uncomfortable condition which had progressively became worse and worse until I was first dependent on laxatives, and later on enemas and colonics. The last six years of my life I have required these daily to produce bowel movements. That is quite a lot of enemas!
My stainless steel enema bucket and I go way back…
At times I wondered if I would ever regain the full functioning of my intestines. My digestive system was so thoroughly ravaged by Chronic Autoimmune Lyme Disease that I have feared that I would being doing daily enemas indefinitely. But here’s the thing about fear: it’s not real. It’s a construct, something we form habitually in response to the unknown. This is why unknowing is such a wonderful thing: what we can’t know has unlimited potential. Yes, there was the possibility of continued constipation, but also of total intestinal recovery.
It’s so easy to fall into asking “What if I don’t get well?” But here’s an even better question, “What if I radically and completely heal?” Ask yourself this and have patience as the answer is revealed to you in its own perfect timing. You are incredible, unrepeatable, and unbelievably loved. Trust me. Trust you. Trust your body. Trust the process, and always: give thanks.
