For my inaugural #healingwords post, I thought I would share the words that turned the way I felt about illness completely upside down.
Not long after I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, I was scrolling through Pinterest and saw this quote by Caroline Myss:
I had no idea who Caroline Myss was and I'd never thought of illness as a vessel of change. The moment I saw this quote my entire mentality shifted from martyr to student. I realized this illness was a transformative force to take me from the stagnant place I was in to the unbounded place I was supposed to be.
Right away I knew some of the changes I would have to make in order to heal. As if by magic when I made those changes, healing started to happen.
Because of these words I continue to ask myself every day, "What am I here to do?" and try to act in a way that leads to me to that purpose.
For those of you who don't know who she is, Caroline Myss is an author and speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition. Her books are truly life-changing.
What are your thoughts on these healing words?
