Choosing Illness

Choosing a pathway without suffering may take longer, and so is it any wonder that we in our impatient world sometimes opt for the shortcut, however difficult that may be?

“I think I choose sickness when I’m ready for a break from the world.”  A day after writing this, I came down with a virus that gave me a fever and mild aches for a week. 

My pipe dream that I could be happy just reading all day quickly evaporated, and in its place came a great need for people, which sent me to the phone.  When I wrote those words,did I know I was getting sick, just below the surface in my unconscious mind, or was I doubly psychic (intuiting sickness and giving my reason for it)? 

It is also true that I was at a turning point in my work, ready to take a new direction after finishing the tasks of the past months. 

Was God trying to get my attention? 

It is only in retrospect that the answers to questions like these ever come.

  1. When you have a high energy personality we often don’t give ourselves permission to rest and take a break unless we make ourselves sick. We need to keep our own energies in balance in the heart of the three fold flame of Power, Wisdom and Love.

  2. I believe that sometimes folks choose illness. Sometimes it can provide an escape. As an RN and a Bodywork Therapist it seemed true to me on a number of occasions. However I try to be careful not to look at an illness and place my “judgment” on it.
