Recently I reached out to Kami Lingren of the blog Living Grace. Kami also has Lyme disease and writes a blog to cope with her illness and raise awareness. I asked Kami to contribute to a post of the Global Lyme Alliance blog called, What It's Like to Have an Illness No One Believes In.
Kami expressed an interest in a blog post I'd been working on for a while about making the changes your illness was designed to inspire. I got the idea from a quote by Caroline Myss:
"When an illness is part of your spiritual journey no medical intervention can heal you until your spirit has begun to make the changes that the illness was designed to inspire."
You can read the full post here:
How to Make Changes in Order to Heal
Writing this post was very healing and I was grateful to have an outlet to share this perspective.
In the post I write about the book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, M.D. I highly recommended it for anyone with health issues:
What changes have you made in order to heal?
