Getting Sick to Get Well
I currently have the flu and yes I am still writing a blog post lol. But it occurred to me that every time I get sick it is always linked to a moment when there is a big change going on in my life.
I am getting ready to move to a new home. And its as if getting sick is my body’s way of telling me. “Hey slow down, be present this moment is an opportunity to get quiet and notice what’s going on underneath the surface.” All illness, from a spiritual view, is about separation from ourselves, the world around us, and the Creator.
Our greatest wound is the belief that we are separate and alone. To bring peace and healing to sickness one must befriend and engage a relationship with it. And that is exactly what I am doing. SLOWING down and being with myself and listen inward. Many of us want to avoid that which is calling our attention. A peace approach moves us away from turning sickness into the “Other”. When we are in a relationship with that which is sickening us, we are joining together to learn the stories within that wish to be expressed.
