A Radical Perspective on Health
I was having a conversation recently. Every time you hear these, you think, “She’s having another conversation,” because I chat a lot. The truth is I have some of the greatest coaching sessions ever. I have some of the most amazing people that I have the opportunity to interact with. In this conversation, we were speaking about how this whole ‘create your own reality’ thing has also created a tremendous amount of difficulty for people. In particular, around health, actually around everything, but health is what we were speaking about. Have you had something occur in your life where you feel like it isn’t the way you would like it to be? You felt guilty about it or you felt some shame or someone who had acquired cancer or broken their leg or had a car accident. The list is long because there are a lot of things that occur in life.There is a plan and a program that is happening in your life everyday and you are here experiencing what that is. Click To Tweet
When you assign yourself to the belief system that it is your fault and creation, it doesn’t make one feel very good. I wanted to speak about this because it’s not part of my belief system to have that as anything that I even consider a reality. What does all of this mean? It means that we don’t create that reality. For some of you, that might be a startling statement, but we do not. Ultimately, we are experiencing life through moments that are coming from who you truly are, your source, creator, God, spirit, whatever your word is. There is a plan and a program that is happening in your life every day and you are here experiencing what that is because of the experience.
It’s not because you’re trying to learn something or you’ve done anything wrong or there’s something that you need to pay back some karmic debt or any of that other kind of stuff. You are on an adventure. You are in a game. You might want to look at it as if you’re on a tour bus. I was using an example down in Escondido, San Diego. There’s the wild animal park. You get on this train or bus and you are taken through the park. You get to see the zebras, elephants, giraffes, and whatever it is out there. You’re not driving the bus but you are on the bus observing what it is that’s brought to you. What if your life was like that? What if you are awakening every morning with a blank slate and you had an opportunity to just be with what was happening in life? For those of you that have studied any kind of Eastern philosophy, you know that life just happens.
Do you think for a moment that you would have sat there and said, “I think I’ll have cancer next week,” or “I think I’ll have a car accident and spend a year in a wheelchair with broken sinuses, 150 stitches in my face, and a compound fracture of my right femur.” That’s my own personal story. Do you think I would have made that up and thought, “That sounds like a fun afternoon?” Do you think that anybody who has any kind of illness wants to have that? Do you think that somebody would think that up through even negative-thought processes? If that were the case, how would you explain a little child, a newborn, coming in with all the things that they do? Some of you will say, “That’s their karma coming back to them from another life.”
I don’t happen to abide by that. I have a little bit different perception. That perception is that your source point, your God, your true self is here in this game called life, experiencing what is. It wants to know what it’s like to have cancer or a car accident, to have anything and everything that’s going on because it knows in its essence that it’s not real. We are pretend selves of our true selves. That personality or ego piece that I call the Pretend Self is here to allow itself to experience for your true self whatever life has. The idea is to experience it as a raw experience and not as a storyline. That means that when you start using adjectives and reasons and you start coming up with all the brain chatter that comes up with why certain things happen, then we start getting into self-denigration.
We get into things where we feel like we don’t do it right, we can’t do it right, we’ve been wrong. We are wrong because nothing that we experienced most of the time feels like stuff we want to be responsible for. Am I saying you’re not responsible? Take a breath. From one perspective, you aren’t. I know that will probably upset a few people. I’m saying this from one perspective because, ultimately, it’s coming from who you are, so you are responsible. What if there was no good or no bad or no right or no wrong about your health or your money or anything else for that matter? What if you were experiencing it so you could see what it was like to experience it? What if you were at an elevated-enough vibration or perception to be able to see it as a raw physical interaction with yourself?Our true self is here in this game called life, experiencing what it is.

In other words, you had a pain and you didn’t label it with anything. What if you took away the word pain and you just had the experience of a sensation in your physical body? What if you took the storyline out of it and you just stayed with, “I have a tingling in my belly. My heart is beating quick. My jaw is clenched. That’s interesting.” You just observe the pure raw experience without the storyline that goes with it. What if you didn’t have reasons, excuses, and justifications for everything that you did or think or everything that you were going through? What if it was you just being on the bus observing the elephants and the giraffes? What if it was brought to you because it was a fun adventure?
I know your personality is going to say, “You got to be kidding me. I don’t think this is a fun adventure.” There is a time and place where you will recognize that you aren’t in pain, that you are enjoying what you’re doing because it is an experience that you can’t have anywhere else. It’s something so far beyond what the conscious mind wants to accept or believe in and yet, it is so. The more that you allow yourself to divest yourself from the story and stay with the raw experience and observer-ship, you will start to see that you have nothing to feel guilty for. There’s nothing that you need to do and there’s nothing that you need to feel shameful about in any way, shape, or form. You are experiencing what it is that your true core wants to experience. The you that I speak of is a fabricated self, a pretend self, an ego, a personality. It isn’t real from all perspectives.
Another part of your mind is going to say, “I feel very real.” Another part of you is going to recognize that it isn’t real like you think of real. Your true self is expressing itself through a pretend self, which I’m calling you or your personality or your ego. If your mind is literally scrambled up right now, that’s okay. That’s awesome. What if what it was that I said was true? What if the idea is to break up the pattern and constricted belief systems that you have? There will be more on these incoming messages. For now, take a breath because I know that we might have put a sledgehammer through the plate glass window. Enjoy it because it’s just what’s happening. Until next time, feel a hug.
