10. The core of who you are, your true nature, is Love.
Health challenges bring us opportunities to release layers of who we think we are so that we can find who we really are and what is most important to us. A common misconception is that trust is something we can feel only when “good” things happen. Fear-based thinking during a health challenge takes you away from your true nature and always sees situations as either/or, as black or white. When we realize we are engaging in such thinking, we can pause and realize there are other options, other ways of seeing the situation. A fearful mind and the negative emotions it creates contribute to illness and reduce the ability to recover fully. Any approach to healing that fails to reduce fear, anger, guilt, hostility, and stress is never going to lead to full health.
