The Keys to my personal personal healing are extensive but very simple
I didn’t waste any time exploring the illness
I made a commitment to heal my life
I was willing to do what ever it took.
I discovered the power of fear and faith and how they represented the driver of my life. This illness was my wake up call to show me that chronic fear was driving my life, long before the chronic fatigue and pain showed up.
My mission was one of raising faith and lowering fear until faith became stronger.
I came to terms with the importance of spirituality being the real sense of self, and self healing. Without this we allow sickness to sneak in through the gaps. Without this real sense of self, we also deny our self the natural inner healing essence.
I had to shift my perception. I adopted the attitude: This happened for me not to me.
I learned that it was not the illness I needed to address but the beliefs which were at the root driving it. This saved me the time and energy exploring what was present and I focused on finding the missing piece to wellness.
I changed my self-talk and used I AM words to raise myself up instead of putting myself down. This brought my attention to wellness and my focus away from the idea of lack and sickness
Surrendering all of my old beliefs and being open to remembering the truth of who I was, before I adopted those beliefs, brought the struggle to an end.
It’s only in looking back that I can see that my illness was a part of the greater picture in my request and quest to find myself. It’s like I had to lose who I thought I was and all the limitations I put on myself in order to find who I really am and the full potential that comes naturally with it.
I discovered that we don’t have to get sick to know true well-being and wellness. All we have to do is to be our self right from the beginning and let that be enough. Unfortunately many people have to go through some sort of crisis to wake up to this simple truth.
I learned that as I raised my faith, I healed and I became a natural conduit for others to find themselves or to heal them selves.
I accepted that this passage of healing as a two-way street. As I give I receive.
I accepted that simple acts of kindness (being my self) does actually make a significant difference in the lives of others: a smile, a genuine compliment or lending a hand. The only degree required here is a degree of faith in who I am is enough. It took many experiences to accept that being truly present is the most precious gift we can offer
I remembered I had choices in every moment which meant I could give into fear or I could surrender to faith. And as fear was my adopted program it would have been easier to give in to that. Somehow, Faith was pushing those layers of fearful beliefs up and out. Instead of holding onto those beliefs, I held onto faith as we went through a very uncomfortable ‘letting go’ process.
I checked inside to see of my decisions were coming from fear or faith. This awareness left me with choices.
I honoured my feelings – all of them – and in time I could do this without judgement. This was a huge stepping stone for me. I began to do what I thought was impossible: I started to embrace myself and my own hurts. Self compassion replaced self pity. As I let go of playing the role of a victim I was reintroduced to the inner victor.
Today, I know that the presenting problem is not really the problem. I ask: What’s the truth in this? Show me the truth? What would love do now? Having asked the question I let it go and I am willing to be shown the answer. And always the answer comes; not always straight away and not always without an inner fight. Faith always wins and the answer always comes.
I learned the power of prayer and gratitude. I learned that giving thanks for what I have is important. Giving thanks for what I wanted as if you I already had it was equally important.
I gave up making my self wrong, and thinking there was something wrong with me, and I began to accept that I am simply different, and that’s okay. I never took the wrong path, because, although I changed direction many times, I found my way home to wellness.
I could say I learned a lot about my self, or did I simply go through the process of unlearning and remembering what was always here, right under my nose, right inside … my Faithful Self?
I came to realise that real healing doesn’t come from fixing or changing myself but from finding myself and from being myself and the realisation that who I am is good enough and Godly enough

Thank you Marie 😍
Is happiness a state of mind? Mmmm this is an interesting one. Years ago I would have said nonsense. But then I was caught up in the “When I, then I” syndrome. This means I was always looking outside myself for something or someone to make me feel better about myself and to be happy.
I was always looking ahead of myself saying things like: When I have enough money, then I will volunteer my services in the things I love and believe in, and which has a purpose. In the mean time I have to work hard doing this job I don’t like to make money. In other words I was putting happiness on hold until I had enough money.
This is what we can often hear. When I get my masters, then I will be happy. When I make a million dollars, then I will be happy. When I get married then I’ll be happy. When have kids, then I’ll be happy. When my kids get a good job, then I’ll be happy, When I leave home, then I’ll be happy. When I get a job, then I’ll be happy. And the list goes on and on. Is this true? Think about it. Soon after you get what you thought would make you happy you are looking for something else to sustain those feelings of happiness, right?
All the while we spend time waiting until, we put the lid on real happiness in the present. The real happiness we seek is already here and lays within each and every one of us as an aspect of our natural blue print. And when we connect with that flow of joy or happiness, others will feed off of that flow and will share in our happiness, naturally.
I found real happiness to be very different to what I thought it would be. It’s more like a feeling of contentment, calmness, peace, love, and much more. It’s a shift of attitude which has set me free to allow the joy of life and all it stands for to move through. I know for sure now, this real sense of happiness doesn’t come from the outside; from getting somewhere, achieving something, but from the internal environment of Being Myself. https://ezinearticles.com/?Yes,-Happiness-Really-Is-Just-A-Decision-Away&id=9495043
We lose this real sense of happiness when we lose touch our real sense of self. We simply shift from our natural program of being who we are, to a man-made program which has the ability to run our lives successfully or ruin it successfully. It will all depend on the quality of the beliefs we hold about our self and life.
As we take on board all those man-made beliefs about what success, worth, happiness, failure, etc. means we opt out of our blue print and we chase something outside of us. https://mariebrunger.com/how-redefining-success-changed-my-life/
This doesn’t mean we can’t have all the success and material possessions in the world because we can. It’s just that if our happiness depends on all of that, what happens when we lose it? We feel lost and we have to go out again to find something else to fill the hole. Instead, we can simply reconnect with the essence of who we really are. As we make that our foundations for life, happiness becomes a natural attitude or state of mind. Now, we can go out and build a world on the outside knowing that if all else fails, who we are won’t crumble.
Be Happy, Marie 😍
