As I’m focusing in on making a 2nd half push, I’m visualizing how far I’ve come. With a skin issue like this, even if there is improvement, I have an overly-hypercritical perspective on myself. This analysis paralysis will affect emotions greatly. The key to keeping emotions intact and balanced is based on THREE aspects, I believe:
- Continuous Practice
- Give Yourself Some Credit
- Love Your Body Every Moment
Continuous practice is where faith is built.
I say this all the time to my entrepreneurial clients and students. “Faith is built through practice”. The simple essence is deeper than that, which is practice keeps us busy on the constructive path. Ever since I stopped visiting so many Dermas, Doctors and Specialists, and started researching literature myself and practicing the principles in those pages, I was in the game.
I instantly felt empowered, accountable and responsible. I grew a self-awareness in these first days. “I can take action to help my body and soul” I have awareness of my emotions and how they move. I understand how important food is on my emotions and biology, I can control that. This thought process is the basis for my practice. For the past year, I have been going to work on this. I don’t wait for referrals, recommendations, appointments and more news I have already foreshadowed getting. Now, I make my own headlines;
“31-year-old Male Reverses His Auto-Immune Disorder Naturally”.
Find the methods that are feasible for you and your lifestyle at first, but understand that what you are preparing to experience is a paradigm shift of your lifestyle. You will be looking at food differently. You won’t be thinking about the word “diet” as we perceive it now, which is to subtract. You will be thinking of diet as a ever-growing list of natural home remedies for psoriasis you NEED to ADD. That is my #1 principle to practice. I added specific foods, juices, supplements, drops to my Psoriasis diet and now I am healing my Psoriasis.
What do you have as your practice field? What can you start doing to keep track of your practice? This keeps us honestly attached to results and outcomes we experience, good or bad. When bad, you can reassess and adjust, and you will be honest with yourself always this way. Practice leads to consistent empowerment which is why we will continue to take action.
I always remember to pat myself on the back now and get back to work.
I am done punishing myself. For many years, I became so swept up in my appearance, the pain, the symptoms and the “why me?” side of Psoriasis. Now, I’m in the game. It’s not “why me?” it’s simply “what do I need?“.
“Why me?” always made me feel stricken with this issue, always positioning myself as the victim, powerless. “What do I need?” put me in a power-position for the first time. Granted, it took me five years to make the necessary fundamental changes to push my paradigm shift, but now I’m here.
Am I still covered in P? Sure I am. Am I still afraid of it never ending until my life ends? Not anymore.
I am not punishing myself anymore for it. I am giving myself credit at every turn. I have tools in place to make up for mistakes. I have two beers, and four slices of pizza, I simply say “whoops I’ll make up for that with more alkaline fluids right now!“. Give yourself credit for the steps you are taking. Understand that since Psoriasis is so tied into our mind, bloodstream, organs and tissues that it will be constantly flaring, fluctuating and freaking. It will be most drastic as we are climbing the mountain of healing Psoriasis naturally.
I love my body and it needs me now, more than ever.
Doesn’t that just sound like a Warrior’s cry? My body needs me. It simply can’t defeat this beast without a lot of assistance from my Earth and environment. The Earth provides all that the body needs to heal. I must find it and eat it, that is my task. This will be healed from the inside-out, not the other way around.
I will use the Earth’s grace and improve the internal environment of my body. When our power and choices are given to an expert to make, our bodies and health are a product of his/her practice.
When we have our own practice in place, using natural items we can afford with great ease, we are the product of our own practice. Always seek the opinions of experts, but always seek education and make choices.
When I adopted this mindset, I found it much easier to love my body. Now, when I look in the mirror, I don’t think “this is awful, I can’t believe this happened TO me, I think “I’m on my way, keep pushing and I’ll get there“.
Practice. Persistence. Patience. Passion. Psoriasis…POWER
These are the ingredients for a Paradigm Shift of Lifestyle. That is what I am striving for, and slowly realizing, as my P slowly goes away, and my Power quickly comes about.
