The medical field can be magnificent, but sometimes, it has limitations. How we see those limitations matters greatly. Being told you are terminal translates to there is no hope, and the advice is to get your affairs in order because you are going to die. Then they give you your estimated life expectancy. That diagnosis is only one small part of the picture that sometimes consumes the whole view. But it only comes from the medical community’s lack of ability to help you. It does not mean there is no help that can be found. Your survival depends on you seeing the full options BEFORE you accept their death sentence on your life. Because once you accept it in your mind, it doesn’t matter what you do, you probably won’t survive.
Every struggle has miracle stories, and the physicians cannot predict who they will be. But it starts with the will to overcome. It’s the time to see it as a fork in the road and a new direction. It can be a road to healing mind, body and soul. Embrace the work of all three because now, they are telling you that you have nothing to lose in trying. Countless “you won’t make it” stories turn into inspiration of living for others, and they love life to a depth they never knew was possible.
It’s a challenge to hold a badge of honor as the Warrior to show what’s possible. You can choose whether your story will be a powerful one, or just another heartbreaking part of statistics your belief led you to. It’s a choice based on your value of your life. No one can decide it’s worth fighting for but you. Your mindset can either work for the diagnosis – or for you. It’s your job to stack the deck in your favor.
Consider this your awakening. Now is the time to explore what makes you feel alive. It’s the time to reflect on what’s really important to you. The body and mind are energy attached to the spirit. Nourish the body – it needs your love now more than ever. Feed the mind and read those books and learn something new. There is an abundance of natural alternative healing methods out there. From frequency healing music, to God’s herbs and foods. Qi Gong can help with meridian energy blockages and grounding in nature holds healing energy. Nourish your soul with spirituality. You need that important connection of gratitude and Faith. It’s how one is able to believe anything is possible.
The point is, don’t let anyone tell you there is no hope just because they are not the ones who hold it for you. They are not your maker and they cannot predict your purpose. Are you willing to step up to the plate and fulfill yours? Your life may depend on it. Do all you can do, be all that you can be, learn all you can learn, and you may just shine yourself to healing. There are those who have shown us that.
Free yourself for living
Make a bucket list – not for dying, but for living instead. Do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Have those conversations you’ve always wanted to have. Now is the time to get to know yourself deep down inside and heal the wounds you’ve held. Pour your heart and soul into being you. Hope is that light inside you. Feed it, and feed it with all you’ve got. You have within you a Warrior, a Teacher, a Healer and a Visionary. Help those parts of you thrive and it may heal you physically. Anything is possible.
No one can predict your road ahead, and it will probably be a difficult one. But you get to decide whether or not you want to give up, not the doctors, and not the diagnosis. Find your purpose and live a legacy life and it may become longer than you’re told. You still matter, and anything is possible.
