There are no simple answers when we ask, “Why did I get sick?” but we may have some clues.
Dr. Andrew Weil, during a television interview, discussed the link between the mind and body. He suggested that we “…look at what is going on in our lives. What emotional pains could we be suppressing in our heads that are being transferred in physical ways?” This is not to say that we cause our illnesses, but, if the possibility exists that our emotions contribute in any way, isn’t it worth looking into?
Maybe all we can do is learn from what happens to us and make the very best use our time to enhance the quality of our lives. When we have an illness, we can choose to give up or do everything we can to help ourselves. We can take an active role in enhancing our well-being.
As Bernie Siegel, M.D., cancer specialist and author, reminds us, we may not be in complete control of the final outcome of what happens to us, we can control our attitudes, how we treat ourselves, and what we bring into our lives. Dr. Siegel read my manuscript for my book and agreed to give a testimonial for it: “If you have the inspiration, this book can be your education.’
All of this is the focus of my work — helping others gain The Inside Advantage. See you next week as we continue on our journey of exploring how to live more deeply, joyfully, and successfully.
