Healing with Balance
A part of me knew the Secret since I was around four years old. I never knew how to describe it, but I always went for what I wanted, such as doing what I could to succeed in school through some challenging times, going to fun parks and restaurants with family and friends, and following my childhood dream of playing soccer for fourteen years.
I have had epilepsy since birth and was recently diagnosed with refractory partial epilepsy. Having repeated seizures felt frustrating for me because my condition has not been under control, even with the various treatments of medications, clinical neurological treatment through an epilepsy clinic, and finding that surgery wouldn’t help me either.
Deep down, I have had this strong gut feeling for years that somehow I could find a treatment that would make my life a lot easier and heal my condition. I felt that I could find ways to become more seizure-free if medical treatments wouldn’t help me control my seizure activity, but I did not know how I would do that. So, after I saw the film of The Secret in mid-2006, I began first with affirming to myself daily: “I am seizure-free.” Then, I came up with this idea of putting together a program for myself which I call: “Epilepsy Balance and Healing Program.” I now use a group of strategies and therapies, which include deep breathing, journal writing, art therapy, music therapy, exercise, spending quality time with family and friends, meditation, watching funny movies and shows, and following a list of self-adapting boundaries. I also use the strategies discussed in The Secret such as the gratitude list, visualizations, and positive affirmations.
Ever since I have been learning how to use The Secret and using this new program to help myself heal from my condition, I have gone through positive transitions that expanded throughout my life. I have had seizures much less frequently, they have become less severe, and I am recovering from seizure activity much quicker. I have also found more support in an epilepsy group, I got to go to some very fun epilepsy events for the first time in my life with others who also have epilepsy, I get to use a transportation system often and travel to places, I have been more successful in college, I have had a lot of support from the college I attend, and I am now a Secretary of a club for students with disabilities.
All of these great miracles and achievements happened, and continue to take place, because of using The Secret, believing I can heal myself, and finding ways to balance different areas of my life. In many ways, we can become our own treatments with using our minds and create self-adapting boundaries where others only see limits existing.
I thank The Secret Scrolls Team for their teachings, help, and positive messages that continue to make a big, positive difference in my life.
