When a loved one becomes ill, there is intense focus on it. There is a deep want for them to be cured and a severe dump of life force energy goes into the fact that they are ill. Sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, everyone is involved in this energy dump around illness. Doing so causes the one who is ill to focus on that illness intently.
There is one small problem with this, and it isn’t so small.
Where thoughts go, energy flows.
With all that focus on illness, it actually can cause a dramatic growth and exacerbation of the illness. There are many studies from all around the world which prove this to be the case.
Of course we want to help our loved ones. We want to do everything in our power to increase their chances of becoming well, or healing to the greatest extent. We want it so badly that we make ourselves sick with worry. Hence, where thoughts go energy flows, not only for our loved ones, but in us as well.
The most powerful thing that can be done is to step back from the fear about illness and shower the situation with love, acceptance and joy. Fear, and a form of panic does not do the situation any good at all, it increases discord and fear ~ it promotes uncertainty and loss of hope. Essentially, it can cause one to just give in and give up.
Love must be allowed to over-ride the fear of loss, it must over-ride the fear of the future outcome. Loving … day to day, day after day, is what brings peace.
It is important to take a deep look into the situation and consider what type of energy is being contributed. Where is the power of the human creator going to? Where is the focus of will going? What is being empowered?
