Hello Warriors, I am writing a quick post in the spirit of Thanksgiving to talk about 5 things I am thankful for. I wrote a post on Thanksgiving last year, here is the list I put together then:
- My Family & True Friends
- My Health & Prosperity as a Free Human
- My Intellect and Intelligence (the ability to make conscious choices)
- This beautiful planet I get to roam
- MY HOMEOPATHIC PSORIASIS TREATMENT THROUGH DIET IS WORKING!
This list remains the same, but throughout the year new meaning has resonated with me so I want to elaborate on that a bit and I’m going to freak you out with #5 ;).
1. My Family and True Friends
All alone is all we are without our relationships and the experiences we gain with each. We don’t realize how beautiful our life is sometimes, especially when we are struggling internally.
I was planning on writing this post yesterday on Turkey Day, but one of my best friends and business partner had an emergency. He was admitted to a hospital with a severe infection that the doctors had trouble identifying.
He’s been through a living nightmare the past two nights as the diagnosis goes from Cellulitus to Pneumonia, to a blood clot, it’s truly nerve-wracking.
He’s on the road to recovery and sleeping peacefully right now, as I sit next to him and count my blessings and realize how little my challenges are in comparison to a fight for your life. It has really put things in perspective.
He has been my #1 supporter this past year as I heal my Psoriasis, he does green juices with me, eats salads with me and is inspired to get as healthy as he can be which is helping him fight right now.
So, I am here for him and all those who need me. I love my family and friends, they are my biggest fans and my concrete foundation.
With them, I am Everything.
2. My Health & Prosperity as a Free Human
Our freedom, health and prosperity are oft taken for granted. I have been so very humbled and my awareness level to the power I have to help myself heal is peaking into pure understanding. I need my body, my body needs me.
I will never again, take any of them lightly. Especially as I watch my friend battle for his. We must take responsibility and be fully accountable to Self, vitality and wellness. It makes you a better person for those who love you with an insurmountably positive influence, and even for those you don’t even know yet, whom will need you greatly at some point.
Self-power and awareness are the keys to solace, peace and reason.
3. My Intellect and Intelligence
(the ability to make conscious choices)
This is the natural next step of being aware of health, prosperity and freedom. Our intellect is somewhat inherited and instinctual. Yet, our intelligence comes from our teachers, those we respect and our experiences throughout life.
When the two are cohesively balanced, you are reaching wholeness and calm. I will always use both to help those that need me. I will always use both to help myself before it’s too late. I will always use both for the greater good of mankind.
We all have the power of choice. Even when it’s a rock and a hard place scenario where there is a feeling of no way out. There is, and all the tools we need are right inside of us. They blossom in the form of our heightened intellect and growing intelligence. Always be an ambassador for peace and wellness.
4. This beautiful planet I get to roam
What a gift we have in the form of Earth and all of it’s eloquent beauty. Nature is a powerful force that goes mostly unnoticed as we commute in our cars, communicate on our cell phones and live more and more in a virtual space.
I have found taking time to go to the beach, or the top of a hill, or the woods, and just listening to life take its course can be extremely peaceful.
Let the energy and circular flow of Mother Earth rush through you like a raging river and feel that sensation of being a wave, gaining tidal momentum, or a glacier spurting out of the Earth from hot to cold.
Realize, that we beings are connected to this planet and it provides us everything we need to heal, balance and blossom like a beautiful flower.
Our environment is the space in which we heal, be aware and benefit
5. I am thankful for Psoriasis
Wait, what?!? I know, it sounds crazy. Some may stop reading right now, but don’t deprive yourself of this upcoming epiphany.
Psoriasis has taught me a great many things about myself. As soon as I chose to get in the game, take action and be a part of my healing…I started to heal, at that Very moment.
I am taking an active role to heal myself, which simply means my wellness, physical fitness, diet, and all other aspects of the physical manifest are the premises of my practice, that’s what I can easily control and has adjusted my attitude, I believe.
Don’t let anything or anyone strip your God-given power. We are divine creatures with the beautiful essence of choice, don’t waste that, use it and realize true happiness and fulfillment.
I woke up this morning to seeing my arms with no flakes of skin for the first time since 2006. SEVEN years ago, was the last time I looked at my arms and saw what I saw this morning. That, my friends, is a revelation, and I am the key player of this reckoning.
So are you. Take control, make a plan, create an active role for yourself and watch how the practice you formulate drives your healing.
As SOON as you see that first sign that your Psoriasis is healing, that your symptoms are reversing in the form of your skin clearing or your joint pain dissipating, you will be truly born again and renewed as a self-healer and a prophet for others who need you.
What do you have to be thankful for? Do you look at your Psoriasis as a curse or a blessing? Think about it and never take life for granted, it can be gone in an instant, but our souls, they go on forever.
Live soulfully, speak your truth, and live by your word. That is your best.
