Maybe you don’t feel so powerful. Maybe you’re lost in what’s happening to you. Things that are out of your control. Maybe you see what’s going on in the world and wonder, what I can do to help change that?
Maybe you’re comparing your life to that of others and you think you come up short. You want what they have.
It’s true: there are many things in our lives that we can not change or control.
We CAN make changes in how we see life. How we experience it. We can become more kind and considerate. We can access our human compassion.
We can act personally and politically. We can forgive. We can become more patient.
And we can be happy for the good fortune of others.
Does any of this resonate with you? It does for me.
Often I think about my dear, dear friend and her long illness. She’d been dealt a bad hand, while mine was much better. And yet, she never once uttered the words, “I’m jealous.” She was always genuinely happy for the good fortune of others. She never compared, even when she could have. Her view of life was broader.
More than once she’d say to me, “I don’t know what this disease is supposed to be teaching me.”
My response was always the same: “Maybe you’re not the one who’s supposed to be learning. Maybe WE are.”
And this is what she taught me: that our experience of our life is what we make it, no matter our circumstances. We’re that powerful.
That life presents us with opportunities to grow and access our power in ways we never imagined.
It’s my pleasure to share with you the life-changing lessons my dear friend’s life and death taught me.
Another way to harness the mind’s power is via hypnotherapy for pain and symptom management. Yes, even by Skype or Zoom. It can be super-effective. Contact me to talk about it: carol (at) ahealingspirit (dot) org.
