Interesting website, thanks for posting. Actually I have Donna Eden's book. I started reading a while ago, but stuff came up and I have never gotten around to finishing it. I must do that.
After the discussion yesterday, I got to thinking a lot about the mind-body connection. I used to be a very spiritual person and spent a lot of time in mediation and spiritual practices. Since discovering CZ I have been totally obsessed with physical problems and solutions and haven't given my spiritual side nearly the attention I used to. I was so convinced that I could find the "magic bullet" supplement or protocol that would return me my health.
But I am also aware that what you focus on increases, and I keep wondering if the reason I don't get well, is because all I focus on is being unwell. With the talk about hormones yesterday, I got to thinking, what comes first, the chicken or the egg. Do we control our hormones or do they control us. I have certainly been a "victim" to my hormones in the past (and present). But where is the mind-body connection. If our bodies aren't producing the right balance of hormones, is the answer to supplement with hormones, or to ask ourselves "why"? Is it the lifestyle we are living? Is it the food or drink we are consuming? Or is it the thoughts that we are thinking?
It is generally agreed on CZ that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when given the right conditions. Surely part of those conditions is a good attitude, positive thinking, and spiritual practice. It was suggested to me that I might need more blood tests, more supplements. Which costs more money, which in turns leads to me feeling more guilt. I have had so many tests. Swallowed so many things. Spent so many hours focusing on what is not working in my body, instead of what is.
I believe I can get well. And I am now more convinced than ever that the way to do that is with simplicity. No more complicated tests and interpreting results and trying to convince doctors that I need this or that. No more searching for the right specialist who will listen to me and give me what I need. I am the only specialist of my body. I "know" what I need. I just need to listen.
And I agree, energy work can be tremendously beneficial. I don't think it worked well for me in the past because I placed all my faith in it and neglected the physical side. Recently I have put all my strength into the physical and ignored the metaphysical. The answer is so simple. Balance in all things.
Mind - Body - Spirit = HEALTH!
