Inspired by my colleague who’s working with me in night shift at the psychiatric hospital, I write this.
He just told me about his hospital experience in the past. He became very ill. For some reason, blood coagulation didn’t work in his veins which could lead to traumatic and even lethal internal bleeding. Not the doctors nor my colleague knew where the illness came from. He had the best doctors around him in the best hospitals, who could test him, but couldn’t heal. They could try out treatments but couldn’t ever give the promise it would work. He was scared, scared to death even.
In this sudden moment of a total mental and physical crash, he knew that the only thing he could do to get healed was practice Satya, truthfulness, to himself. At that time he didn’t know what it was he was doing ‘wrong’ but he did take full responsibility for ‘it‘ in his own body. After taking all the space and time in the hospital he needed to think about himself, his life, his choices he decided at one moment to make radical changes in the way he was living. Knowing he would create personal insecurities that might have enormous consequences on his life and relationships, he took that risk. He trusted his gut feeling.
It didn’t take more than one day after this radical change to start the physical healing process. In a mysterious way his body started to create healthy blood corpuscles, not many, one or two the doctors concluded. Later these two became six, ten, fifteen healthy blood cells maybe. And very very slowly his body transformed from a sick one into a healthy one again without treatment.
I am not telling that nobody needs any treatment, I accepted medical treatment for a while when suffering from Hyper Thyroidism. But I also knew I was responsible for what happens to my body. My body is my vehicle and I need to take the best care of it I can. Which I didn’t do for a while. I knew I was crossing my personal borders mentally, my body reacted on that, gave me messages daily which I refused to listen to up to that day that changed my life radically. From my experiences I must say, to make that one choice for drastic change is most the difficult action but the most powerful as well. I had to work hard on myself, the cure was very close to me… In nature the cure is never far away… My Yoga was one of the things that helped me enourmusly. I didn’t need medication anymore after a little while. My Thyroid taught me something and the imbalances never came back after.
