[Health] One Simple Understanding Changes Everything…Ready?

One Simple Understanding Changes Everything…Ready?
Your poor health (external) is the most efficient “check engine light” God could rig to show you problems with your thinking and beliefs (internal).
This week I’ve coached three different people with varying health conditions. One person with a crazy ER level flu, a person with serious bedrest pregnancy & and someone with near paralysis.
My flu sufferer was a teenager and she was the most flexible and accepting hearing the source of her illness. That makes sense because she’s only had a good decade or so to build her defenses and denials up. Origin? Crazy break up with on again/off again guy who she KNOWS isn’t right for her but is having difficultly allowing that truth and truly leaving.
A Course in Miracles says sickness is merely a defense to truth. Sorry to spring this on you-but it’s correct.  And yes, I hate that too sometimes. I want the source of my cold to be that kid that sneezed on me at Walmart, not ME.

Most of you reading this can remember the way cars used to be. If the oil got low in your car, a little red light came on that said OIL or showed an oil can.

If the car was overheating there was a gauge or a light for that too. Only the incredibly foolish or overly optimistic kept driving a car for days and weeks after these lights came on expecting nothing bad to happen. Most of you probably remember hearing of somebody who blew up a car engine because it was out of oil.
So here is the radical news: Your illnesses and sicknesses are basically a check engine light on your life lit up by the Universe.
Everything begins with thought. You already know that, but do you carry it to its logical conclusion and apply it? When something is wrong with your body it is because something was first wrong within your mind and your thoughts, feelings and emotions.   As within, so without.
In fact whatever was wrong – as in “not aligned with love or truth” – had been there for a goodly while before it rose to the level of strength required to trigger your “Check Engine Light”.

Maybe. You. Ignored. It.Yep, you know that’s a bad idea for a car but when it comes to your body (which is in doing more precious work) we just tend to ignore these things and kind a hope they’ll go away on their own. We think fear-based thoughts and make ourselves anxious, stressed and uneasy and we expect absolutely nothing to come of it!

Even if you didn’t like physics class we can all recite “Energy is neither created nor destroyed, it just changes form.” So if you focus (purposefully or not) until you have a big wad of fearful, stressful energy INSIDE of you and even if YOU don’t do anything with it – it is doing something WITH YOU.
When we get sick we get tempted – because we are seeing the illness signs on the External – to apply only External solutions to an Internal problem. Except this is not only an external problem. All external problems have internal origins. As within, so without. Sneaky how true that is!
Should you do some external things for relief? Sure. But for real resolution? Start with the Internal first. When you are sick, you are wrong about something that you think you are right about.


You are not telling yourself the truth or accepting the truth about something. (That can be as simple as you let people treat you horribly, like you are not enough and you are wrong – You ARE Enough. You were BORN enough).


Your illness is the check engine light. It’s how God talks to you to tell you that something has to be done with some belief that you have right now. And yes, it can be a subconscious belief you can’t spot. That’s what coaches help with.



********  More About Beliefs Hidden in Your Subconscious


Here’s the crazy scary part – if you’ve been working on yourself for a while you may have cleared all of the obviously “off” beliefs that you know you have. I got mine all clear. If you did that too, we are now down in what I call the “Sub-Basement Beliefs”. Meaning beliefs that we cannot see and don’t even know are even there, even though we’ve looked for them.  We don’t know they are there, until something goes wrong.


You only know there is problem with your mostly invisible Sub-Basement Beliefs because something is going wrong in your life without apparent reason.  Our fabulous Check Engine Light turns on. That check engine light always means something is wrong. Illness always mean something is wrong (“out of alignment”) with your creation level which are your thoughts and beliefs.


If things are going well for awhile and then start to go sideways, it has a cause.  Spotting and dragging Sub-Basement Beliefs to the light is tricky. It’s some of most resisted but most satisfying coaching work. 

Just remember: The conditions you observe right now are the thoughts you had previously. If your health is compromised and your “Light” is on – Investigate it! Get under the hood of your mind and poke around and ask to know what is causing the signal light.
If you attempt to shut off the light using medicines and surgeries without fixing what caused it originally, it can and likely will reappear somehow. Don’t get angry at or resist your health condition, its TALKING to you. It is loving you. It is trying to HELP you.
Am I a healer? Never thought of myself that way, but I help heal root causes that turn into cruddy stuff on the external. I’ve reversed my own 2 runner’s knees, a serious bone infection in my jaw during a dental implant and a scary mammogram.  And yes, I can track the “truth I was defending against” for each. The jaw infection with x-rays below came on the heels of a romantic disappointment with Mr. E. for instance.

Anything out of order in your external is pointing you to the control knob inside of you. Go there. Look for it. Be ruthless with yourself if need be. Find it, release and love it. Forgive yourself for not seeing it sooner  and heal.
Did this help you?
Write me and let me know if these articles are helping you. I am coaching you. I can either write “12 Ways to Decorate Your Bedroom for Valentine’s Day” or I can write articles that make you think and stretch and question how you’ve operated in the past so you can grow.

Keep emailing me and telling me your thoughts.  Is there a problem you want tackled? If it is common enough, I’ll answer it for you and everyone else if you ask. Maybe we’ll do a Spiritual Dear Abbey in February? We’ll see… 🙂
