Q: Your little blue book Heal Your Body hasn’t been updated since 1988 and I have conditions I am looking for that aren’t listed, such as fibromyalgia.
Over the years I’ve learned that there are really just two mental patterns that contribute to disease: Fear and Anger.
Anger can show up as impatience, irritation, frustration, criticism, resentment, jealousy or bitterness. These are all thoughts that poison the body. When we release this burden, all the organs in our body begin to function properly.
Fear could be tension, anxiety, nervousness, worry, doubt, feeling not good enough or unworthiness. Do you relate to any of this? We must learn to substitute faith for fear if we’re to heal. Faith in what? Faith in Life! I believe we live in a "Yes" Universe. No matter what we choose to believe or think or say, the Universe always says "yes" to us. If we think poverty, the Universe says "yes" to that. If we think prosperity, the Universe say "yes" to that. It's up to us! The Universe wants us to experience anything we desire. So let's say "yes" to all good. Be a "yes" person, living in a "yes" world being responded to by a "yes" Universe.
If you find yourself with some sort of diseases that is not listed in Heal Your Body, become your own investigator and healer. Ask yourself, is it one of the forms of fear or is it one of the forms of anger? Are you willing to release those thoughts. And replace them with positive affirmations? Loving yourself will also contribute greatly to healing your body for love heals.
So how do you love yourself? First of all and most importantly: Cease all criticism of yourself and others. Accept yourself as you are. Praise yourself as much as you can. Criticism breaks down the inner spirit, praise builds it up. Look into a mirror often and simply say: I LOVE YOU, I REALLY LOVE YOU. It may be difficult at first, but keep practicing and soon you will mean and feel what you say. Love yourself as much as you can and all of life will mirror this love back to you.
P.S. Fibromyalgia is fear showing up as extreme tension due to stress.
My book I Can Do It will give you lots of affirmations to get you started until you learn to create your own.
Q: Do you have any words of wisdom about money and prosperity?
What is it you are truly afraid of? Look within and see if there is a belief that you are not deserving of your financial good. So often we subconsciously sabotage the manifestation of what we desire as a means to protect ourselves. As odd as it seems, it is most often our success that frightens us rather than our failure. Subconsciously you may be thinking that upon fulfilling your goal you may discover that either it does not make you happy or it could be taken away from you. It is imperative to constantly remind yourself that this is the moment in which you are either enjoying or not enjoying your life. What you are feeling now is creating your tomorrow. When it comes to your affirmations, continue doing them in faith that Life doesn’t make mistakes. Open them up by simply accepting your highest good. In this way you do not limit your opportunities by being too specific and you allow the Divine Intelligence to guide and direct your perfectly unfolding expression and experience.
We affirm for you the absolute perfect working and home life situation that supports the unfoldment of your highest potential.
Q: How can I create a loving relationship?
You may still have some fear that is standing between you and the life you desire, and that you’re still holding back from allowing a relationship to be in your life the way that you wish. You may have to reach back into your childhood relationship with your father or mother to resolve deep-seated fears surrounding a relationship. Ask yourself: What do I have to give up to be in a relationship? How do I lose me when I’m in a relationship? What messages did I receive as a child that created a belief in me that relationships are painful or not forthcoming? I suggest that you work on loving yourself non-stop. Treat yourself to romance and love. Demonstrate to yourself how special you are. Pamper yourself. Buy yourself flowers, surround yourself with colors, textures, and scents that please you. Life always mirrors back to us the feelings we have inside. As you grow in an inner sense of love and romance, the right person to share your growing sense of intimacy will be attracted to you like a magnet.
