The Work on ‘I am unhealthy’

I am unhealthy.

Is that true?
Yes.

Can I absolutely know that it’s true that I am unhealthy?
No.

How do I react when I believe the thought that I’m unhealthy?

I feel very stressed out. Life seems like too much. I feel a real sense of hopelessness about my ability to really enjoy and engage with life. I am very severe on myself in terms of my diet — I am a perfectionist for a while, which is very stressful, and thereafter I react by eating a lot of junk food. After that I feel guilty, awful about myself, and completely out of control. I feel angry at myself for making my health worse. I complain and feel scared and ‘force’ Boyfriend to support me. I avoid things, like running, going out too much, getting cold. I feel terrified when I get cold or wet, thinking it’s going to lead to illness. I spend a lot of time terrified of getting sick, and being frustrated and angry and blaming myself when I do get sick. I feel very angry at the Universe/angry at God for putting me in this defective body. In fact, I feel a lot of rage. I have lots of tantrums and feel that life is really too much for me.

Who am I without the thought ‘I am unhealthy’?
I am at peace. I have so much energy. I am happy, strong and capable. I do what I do, I eat what I eat, with a sense of total peace and strength. If I get sick, I enjoy resting, knowing that I am inherently complete and perfect. I never make decisions according to an idea of myself as damaged — I make the decisions that feel right and joyful in the moment. I feel strong, infinitely so, and infinitely capable.

Is there a peaceful reason to believe the thought ‘I am unhealthy’?
I can get the help I need.

I need to believe I am unhealthy to get the help I need.

Is that true?
No.

I need help.

Is that true?
No.

How do I react when I believe the thought ‘I need help’?
I stress out about finding the right person or people to help me. I spend a LOT of money on appointments and medicines. This reinforces my idea of myself as damaged. I feel very small and very powerless, needing external forces. I feel very sad and discouraged when I see someone and the treatment doesn’t seem to help.

Who am I without the thought ‘I need help’?
I smile and look on everything as perfect. I love every sensation in my body and I am grateful for every twinge. I see a health practitioner when I decide to, but I know in my heart that I am perfect, and I don’t need anyone to heal me.
