Have you heard that the quality of your thought equals the quality of your life? Well then, the time has come to understand exactly what it means for you and your future.
If you have a chronic illness, such as Ankylosing Spondylitis (which is what I had for 10 years) or other autoimmune disease, the quality of your life is probably not what it once was. And yet, there are people with chronic illness who believe the best is yet to come. They expect the best for themselves from the world around them, and this mindset makes a colossal difference to the quality of their lives.
Are you one of them?
If you’re like most, the answer is a resounding “NO! How can I be upbeat and optimistic when I’m in constant pain?”
I know that a goodly lot of your life is spent searching for an escape from the pain and duress of AS. It all seems to boil down to a constant effort to escape from reality, which you know to be all but impossible.
So the question becomes “How can I change my reality?”
And the answer is, very simply: Start by changing your thoughts.
Now, if this sounds hokey or airy-fairy to you, fine; you can be an onion and continue on as you were.
But if you’re up for a spirited lesson, I challenge you to disprove this nugget of wisdom and try to render it incorrect.
It’s true because all change begins in thought. If a cure-all for AS was suddenly invented (and I know you’re waiting for one) then the process started this way: We need a cure for AS, so let’s invent one. That, in fact, is a powerful thought. It’s the impetus that gets the ball rolling.
If you wanted to get that cure-all, the process would begin with a thought: I damn well need to get that cure, no matter what it costs! Where can I get it?
In the absence of a single treatment to cure you, the most important thing for you to do is realize that your thoughts predetermine your reality.
Let me give you a thought… a very, very powerful message that can change your life. Here it is…
Ankylosing Spondylitis and many other autoimmune disorder and illnesses can be healed.
This I know. How? Because there are many people, including me, who have healed from diseases and illness of all kinds. Nothing anyone can say or do can change that reality.
If there is one thought you could choose to absolutely change your life, this is it: I really can get better.
Let go of your doubts and focus on that.
If there’s one thought for you to meditate on every day, it’s this: I can heal.
Don’t let anybody or anything ever take that away from you. The quality of your life depends on it.
