If you watch the movie The Secret, one of the exercises is to write a note to yourself from a future perspective. I believe in this concept and use it often when coaching people. Below is my letter written from a future, healthy me.
I’m so excited now that I have recovered fully from _______. Once thought an impossible illness, I am living proof that you can heal your body with the right food, the right treatment, and the right mindset.
Now, less than six months after diagnosis, I am happy, I am working, and I have been profoundly blessed by God and the people who have stepped forward to provide everything when I needed it most.
I’ve learned a lot during this healing journey and I know I will continue to grow as we continue to support each other. Thanks to a few VERY generous sponsors, we’ve now expanded this site to include the latest information on treatments and protocols, an online support group, education/awareness items, and (my favorite) a powerful new tool to help you create your healthy, new future.
Never, in my wildest dreams, did I think that something that seemed so hopeless could turn into my greatest blessing. Just as I prayed for last December on Christmas Day, my family is now healed, my husband and I now have meaningful work, we live in a great neighborhood, and indeed we are expecting a beautiful, healthy baby--due next year. The Universe really does work in mysterious ways.
Keep Believing and Keep Altering Everything.
