“An illness is merely our consciousness calling attention to something that needs to be looked at. There is something about which we are feeling guilty, fearful, or other negative emotion. There is a belief system we are holding that has to be let go of and canceled. There is something that has to be forgiven, and something within us that has to be loved, so we thank whatever it is for bringing it to our awareness. We say, “Thank you, ulcer. I see. You forced me to look at the way in which I was condemning myself and not loving myself. Thank you, hypoglycemia, for showing me how much I have been living in fear.”…The pain serves a purpose, and we now hold it in a different way. We are going to make lemonade out of lemons.
Instead of going into self-pity or resentment about an illness, instead of “poor me” or being a victim, we say, “What is this trying to tell me? What is it I’m supposed to learn?” We get interested in learning about the nature of consciousness and finding out what is underlying the illness so we can heal it through a greater understanding.”
