That is not good news to anyone who suffers. The victim mentality is more appealing to sufferers. "I didn't do anything, I was just struck down in the prime of life. Poor me" I addressed my RA with western medicine - a handful of pills. Then I signed up for a mediumship class.
In mediumship class we were taught that everything, every little thing, happens for our greater good. I attracted whatever it is to myself to learn a lesson. I also learned that for the most part I lived in the head. I didn't occupy my whole body. My teacher said that part of the reason my RA progressed was because I wasn't present in my body The most important lesson I learned from my teacher is that if I caused it, I can fix it. Now, THAT is good news.
Louise Hay has written several books about this very topic. My favorite is Heal Your Life. Through her work she has identified the meaning behind many pains and diseases. She encourages each of us to be our own medical intuit. Every pain MEANS something. It's a message. I'm going to try listening.
According to Louise Hay rheumatoid arthritis is caused by "Deep criticism of authority. Feeling very put upon." Ever feel that way? I am deeply critical of, well, pretty much everything around me. This is something that I want to get out of life. Hay recommends the affirmation: "I am my own authority. I love and approve of myself. Life is good." I have not been a believer of affirmations but I am trying the Tube of Light and Violet Flame so I'll try this too.
As I sit here today, I have on a foot brace and can only walk haltingly. What does that mean? Problems with the ankle indicates inflexibility and guilt. Ankles represent the abililty to receive pleasure. Check your symptoms here So I can't tell you that I've conquered my problems and I am healthy and happy. What I can say - I am a Work in Progress.
