Nearly a year ago, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 27. While it definitely came as a shock to me, I haven’t let it define the person that I am. My father was diagnosed with PD when he was 51 (which is still considered young) and I sadly watched Parkinson’s completely take over his life. The smallest things such as walking and even talking have become difficult for him.
I was wondering, because I am diagnosed at such a young age, will I become as symptomatic as my father by my 40’s?
My answer may come as somewhat of a surprise to you. Your future state of health and wellness is primarily a function of what you think will happen. More specifically, do you think in your heart, mind and soul that you will suffer the same fate as your father? If you do, then you will.
If on the other hand, you hold the belief that your body can heal itself and that the symptoms your currently experience are an indication that something is out of balance in your body, then you will search for answers and find them.
You want to know what happens to people in your same circumstance. The outcomes split into those who believe their fate is sealed – they get gradually worse – and those who know healing is possible – they get better. At the foundation of all healing are our thought forms.
The pessimistic thoughts have low frequencies which impede healing. The optimistic thoughts have high frequencies which facilitate healing. In the end, the engine that drives what happens to you lies in your moment to moment thoughts about what is possible to manifest. I have written about the impact of thoughts on healing for Parkinson’s in Five Steps to Recovery.
If you are interested in exploring options that can potentially facilitate a reversal of symptoms and to flood the cells of your body with an energy of optimism, attend the Parkinsons Recovery Summit this June! It is the happening of the decade for anyone who has set a course to recover.
