You Are Not Your Illness
“Our bodies are merely blank canvases onto which we project our thoughts. Disease is loveless thinking materialised.”
– Marianne Williamson
You’ve been diagnosed with something, right? You have adrenal fatigue. You have Ménière’s. You have Chron’s. You have a disease.
No, my love. No, you don’t.
Right now, there is an imbalance in your body. In your mind. In your spirit. But do you have to identify with it? I say no.
You are so much more than your illness. You are so much more than the extra 10 kilos, so much more than the redness on your skin.
I can see it. I can feel it.
All of us – we are divine and we are unique. We were brought into this planet at this time so that we could learn some deep lessons, lessons that are expressing through our bodies and our lives.
Whatever it is you are going through, whatever so called illness you ‘have’ – it’s not you:
It’s just a lesson waiting to be expressed + transformed.
We’ve been made perfect. We are. We are so perfect. But, we’ve manifested blockages.
We have these issues in our bodies as mere teachers to remind us that we are perfect already!
We don’t need to identify with these man-made diseases. Because let’s be honest, these didn’t exist until this century. Have you heard stories of the cavemen, Adam and Eve…having adrenal fatigue? Having diseases? No. We have created them. And we have identified with them. And now, they’ve stuck onto us and our minds.
But, we can turn it around. We don’t need to fall into the trap any longer.
To heal, you need to identify with the person you really are. You are not a person with an illness – you are a magnificent being here on a mission. What that mission is – it’s unique to you. But every one of us has one.
This is mine. To remind you.
When I identified with my bodily imbalance, I felt sad that nobody else saw it. I felt sad that nobody could recognize the fact that I was suffering. But, why? Why did I want others to know that I was in pain? You see, it was inside my body. Yet nobody saw it – but me.
Maybe, just maybe, we can start to see ourselves how other people see us.
When I see you, I see beauty. I see truth. I see love. I see light.
When I see you, I don’t see anything wrong.
Can you start to see yourself this way as well?
Can you detach from what you cling to? That name. That stigma.
Can you transform your illness, your bodily imbalance, into something for the greater good?
You are beautiful.
I love you.
That is all.
