One of my favourite sayings is: "Life doesn't happen to you, it happens for you"
I am sure a lot of the spiritually minded people tuning into the podcast can appreciate that statement, but why do we have a different approach when it comes to our physical symptoms?
What do I mean?
Well, we have all bought into a healthcare system that makes us think that when we have pain, fatigue, skin issues, or other physical symptoms, we have something wrong with our body!
This is the view of German New Medicine, we see your symptoms not as a mistake made by your body but an intelligent adaptation made by mother nature to help you cope with changes in your environment.
So the paradigm shift is 2 fold.
First, we need to recognise that our symptoms are meaningful. They don't happen to us, they happen for us!
Secondly, it serves us well to ask the question..."What is this trying to teach me?"
When you have some kind of symptom, say a knee pain or a back pain that comes along twice a year, ask "What is this trying to teach me?"
Using GNM as the roadmap between your mind and body, you are able to pin point what your symptoms are trying to tell you. When you do this, you can start healing on the inside.
Start letting go of the emotional pain of the past, letting go of the stress in your life.
When this happens, you not only heal physically, you start to heal spiritually as well.
This is why your symptoms are a blessing not a curse. Because they help you release and let go of patterns in your mind that are no longer serving you!
