Welcome to my blog site!
Over the next year I am going to start you on a journey similar to my own, which was and still is a quest to understand what it means to be truly and fully healthy. True health is not just about being physically “ok”, it is about truly knowing yourself fully on all levels; physical, mental and emotional. Being self aware at all times and taking responsibility of yourself and all your actions and reactions.
True health does not mean that you will never have problems or issues, since we are human and alive that means that we have something to still work on, process and learn from. Life as we know it on earth as a physical being is a slow process of evolution and is always in process of some sort. Being flexible and able to change as change is needed is healthy. My hope with this evolution of information through my blogs will help those of you who are ready to really find true health, take ownership of yourself and your life and realize the incredible strength and freedom that comes with this process will joyfully follow my ramblings along.
Please post comments so that this blog can inspire everyone on this particular path at this point in time to realize we are not alone.
So lets get started.
I don’t know about you, but I honestly can not recall how many times over my life I have asked the question, why? Why are we here?
What really is the point of life. Who are we really. There has to be some deeper reason behind our being here on earth.
Even if you have never admitted it to yourself, I know we all have wondered these things at some point in our lives. For me it was when I was just entering my teen years. For most of us that will be the time when we really question our existence, since we are moving into a time in life when we are more aware of ourselves as individual entities and not so much a part of our parents and family. Rudolf Steiner calls this the opening of our Astral body, which is our individual emotional body. I will discuss who we are more fully in later blogs.
For me these questions also mainly centered around health, since I had become quite sick in my early teen years, which I now realize was more due to the emotional and mental stress I had been under for years catching up with me, than any real physical pathology. Even though I truly did feel horrible physically for a good year or more. My symptoms also worsened once I was prescribed a number of different heavy duty medications all of which had no specific purpose since the doctors and specialists where unable to find any conclusive reason behind my illness even after countless tests at various hospitals.
The first direction my journey took me on was to realize that the so called modern medicine I was relying on really was not safe or curative. In most cases when I needed to take something that was considered medicine by conventional standards, I inevitably felt worse due to my body not being able to handle to toxic onslaught it provided. Some people like myself are so sensitive that we are aware of every little difference in our energy patterns and what is happening at the physical, chemical level. After this major illness and the loss in my faith for what I knew as modern medicine, I was left feeling confused and uncertain as to what to do when I felt ill again. At this point in time I knew nothing about homeopathic remedies and so the only thing I could do was to allow my life force to do what ever it needed to do to keep me healthy. I had also started going to see a natural health care practitioner at this time to see what else I could do to help myself. I learned that I did need to do something to help boost my system and so I changed my diet, worked on detoxifying some of the toxins my body had accumulated and supporting organs with specific nutrition and herbs.
Since that time I have never looked back, I have never used any conventional medicine to this day and know I am much healthier due to this decision. Instead I have turned to what I feel and now know are safer, more natural methods. To me a natural method means that it works in a way that does not defy who we are and how we function but supports every aspect of who we are in a dynamic, functional and wholistic way. I use the term “wholistic” because that is how I see myself; as a whole being. I can not be segregated in to compartments like, just my eyes or just my physical body or just my emotional body etc. Every part of me recognizes instantaneously what is going on within the whole at all times. So even if say I have a problem with my eyes or eye, I can not simply just look at treating the eye, I have to understand why my whole has allowed something to befall my eye (unless I accidently jab something in my eye then obviously I know why there is a problem!) but in order to repair and heal any individual health issue I must look at every reason behind how this problem has developed and fix the whole not just the part. By fixing the whole I affect the part and it will rebalance once all the obstacles or causations have been removed. True health entails digging out the root cause of all problems. If you want to clean your yard up of dandelions you don’t go out and just cut the heads off each day, it only seems like the problem is gone, until the plant grows again. You need to go and dig out the root to fully eliminate the problem!
It was at this point in my life I also came across an amazing woman who was in her early years of helping others, her name was and is Louise L. Hay and she had written a small truly life altering book at the time called – ‘You Can Heal Your Life’. Which explains very simply how your emotional life affects your physical body. She has since gone on to create an amazing empire of self help, you can check her out at http://www.louisehay.com/. This book was my early bible and I checked it often as I was struggling with my own health issues and wanted to understand why? It was my first real understanding that our mental and emotional body affects our physical body. I was still deeply searching for the meaning to life, and why we have to struggle with life, why do we fall ill, what is the point of illness? This initial information to me was a great source of comfort and just the starting point.
What I have learned along the way is that life does have meaning. It has a cosmic order, laws and rules that govern us as living organisms and provided we know, understand and follow these natural laws we will live and grow and evolve as we are meant to with relative health and freedom. Just taking chemical drugs to palliate our symptoms at best or worst to suppress our symptoms and mask them so we aren’t aware they are there is not curative or healing in any way and many people are slowing waking up to this fact. We are also becoming very aware of the damage that these toxic drugs are creating as side effects to the possibly and very questionable aid they may give us. But once we know this then what are our other options in order to find health.
What I would like to do over the next year is create blogs that will unfold for you all that I have learned regarding health, healing as well as true disease removal. The deeper understanding about why we are here on this planet, as well as how natural medicine is more superior to conventional medicine when it comes to true healing and curing and how you can easily learn how to apply the true natural laws and principles that affect us in this realm.
So open your minds and souls and get ready to learn some amazing truths about yourself and how to achieve your ultimate goals in true life long health, naturally.
