Why has illness arrived? What is it here to teach you? What lessons is it inviting you to learn? Check in with yourself and how you are relating to your current dis-ease. Are you asking it to go away? Are you blaming your physical body for breaking down? Are you searching externally for what will turn your symptoms off?
What if you shifted the relationship and asked the question: how is this condition asking me to grow? What if you adopted a stance of openness and curiosity to understand what the message of your symptoms is trying to convey. What if you shifted your orientation from one of resisting and running from disease to one of befriending it with open arms and a willingness to listen. What is the message it is desperately trying to convey?
Maybe disease has arrived to teach you the boundaries of your physicality. To show you that your physical body has needs and limits that must be respected and followed. Although humans have risen to great heights, we still have the same needs of all creatures in the natural world. Nature has physical laws that no creature is above. We all need clean water, clean air, adequate nutrient inputs, and a balance between rest and activity. Perhaps we are being invited to come learn about the boundaries of our physicality and the needs of our organism.
Perhaps disease has arrived and is asking you to examine your identity of what you say you are and what you say you are not. I am mother. I am wife. Perhaps your identity of caretaker leads to to the neglect of your own needs and boundaries. Does guilt arise when you say no or care for yourself? A wise healer once told me - Jane - your role with your own body is one of caretaker. Perhaps we need to honor - that in order to care for others we must first care for ourselves.
Perhaps illness is asking for a re-examination of what you say you are not. Is there a part of you that you are suppressing or labeling as bad or negative? Maybe it is your sexuality that has been long suppressed or ignored or labeled as dirty. Perhaps it is your feminine knowing that you have labeled as weak or less than. Clues can often be found by listening to that quiet inner voice that arises to realign us with who were truly are and the parts of us that long for expression.
Perhaps illness has arrived to illuminate a limiting belief or way we see the world that is outdated or simply not true. How attached are you? Are you refusing to see the full picture? It often shows up in language of certainty. It is this way. Case closed. Vegetarian is the healthiest diet. Grains cause disease. Fat makes you fat. I am an anxious person. Thoughts do not influence my health. The only way to get ahead in this world is to work harder and longer. Maybe illness has arrived to show you how this belief is in need of shifting because it conflicts with the needs of your body.
Perhaps your values need to be re-examined. Where do you place your physical - emotional - mental and spiritual health in the spectrum of your value hierarchy? Do you value success - significance - money - above all else? Maybe dis-ease has arrived for you to check in on what's important in life.
Are you struggling with disease? Find a quiet place each morning for one month. Shift your relationship with your illness and the symptoms it is speaking from a stance of go-away to a stance of openness and curiosity. Illness wants to teach you. It wants to facilitate your growth. Are you willing to sit and listen?
Although the answers to why we are sick already exists within us - sometimes we need help to make the invisible visible.
