Love Your Uniqueness!


Think about it. There is only one of you.

No one else has your fingerprints. There is not another person on this earth that has your heart, your lungs, your brain, your personality, your physical characteristics, or your spirit.

Your physical uniqueness also means that you may experience certain illnesses and malfunctions of your physical and emotional body unlike anyone else.

Value these unique expressions of your body, and trust the messages that they send you.

Do you need to slow down a little? Set aside more time for self-care?

Perhaps you need to practice better preventive medicine such as choosing more healthful foods, moving your body more, and finding ways to de-stress. Maybe a supplement is in order.

Honor and surrender to the messages that illness brings you. Welcomed wellness will result.

The Experiment: Sit quietly with open arms and allow yourself to remember a physical or emotional illness that you previously experienced, or one that you currently have. Close your eyes and feel the pain and inconvenience that this illness caused or is causing you. Feel deep compassion for yourself.

Ask yourself what message this illness might be sending you. Breathe deeply and relax into your slowed breath. Say out loud, “I am willing to learn from this illness. I am willing to use this illness to discover my innate health.” Then, go within again to follow your breath.

Embrace this experience for 5-10 minutes and note any wisdom you receive.

Silence Your Inner Critic: You may think that illness has nothing to teach you. Your mind will tell you just to ignore or rebel. Do the experiment anyway. Remember that bogus thoughts are not worth your time. And, an open heart brings healthful rewards.
