The following practice is one way to deeply honor ourselves and thus increase our capacity to heal.
I challenge you to do this every day for one month. It has the power to change your life.
Take a few moments each morning before you get out of bed to check in with your heart's desire for that day. Then before your head hits the pillow that night, make sure you have done whatever is necessary to satisfy that desire.
Heart's desire for the day is never something that is bad for us or is something too large or impossible for that day. Often it doesn't even take long to do.
If healing your arthritis is part of your heart's desire, doing this exercise will strengthen the inner trust and faith in yourself that you can and will do whatever is necessary to heal.
It will train your awareness of how much deep healing often comes from carrying out small, doable, often enjoyable steps, on a consistent basis.
It teaches you how to honor yourself even in the midst of a difficult life situation.
It will open you up to your own inner knowing and authority.
