Adding Intention to Injury

The last couple of days my body has had a pain in it's right foot. I've been noticing that I've been saying "My foot hurts...my foot hurts...my foot hurts..." That's an intention to continue to have my foot hurt. And each day, in fact, the pain has been getting worse.

This morning I'm remembering that as I spirit I don't have to agree with the physical universe. Yes, at this moment there is a pain in my body's right foot, but as a spirit, I can start right now to create a new future for my foot using my intention.

So now I will
  • acknowledge the pain as an indicator that something is wrong that needs treatment,
  • find out what that treatment needs to be and do it,
  • change whatever behavior resulted in this symptom, and
  • intend that my foot is completed healed, comfortable, and has the ability to walk on it so both my feet can take me, the spirit, and my body, wherever on earth I wish to go.
I appreciate that my body uses symptoms to guide my choices in the direction of health and longevity. But once I get the message, there's no need to continue the discomfort--especially by continuing to intend it!

As a spirit, sometimes I use a body symptom or injury to bring to my attention a pattern of thinking or belief that does not serve me. Over 30 years ago I broke my right femur (thigh) and it has caused problems ever since. I have pondered what the message was- does it have to do with fear of moving forward, etc? This week it became clear to me that I have never felt supported by other spirits in creating what I want to experience in my life. So now it is my intention to see others as supporting me and to allow others to support me in moving forward.

Hi Mary ~

I was so moved by your comment when I just read it. I spent much of my life feeling exactly the same way...not supported by other spirits to be a spirit and use my spirit abilities. Fortunately, Larry and I do now feel supported as spirits by each other and other friends we know, and want to extend that support to more people. We acknowledge you as a spirit and support you in moving forward.

I keep thinking about this thread. I, too, am having a foot problem. It dates back 30 years. I broke my leg and the doctor said it was a bad break. "It was a bad break" became my mantra. I was on crutches a year. As a result of this injury, I wear a special shoe. I just had a new pair of thong sandals made. Yesterday they were rubbing and I heard myself complain. Then I realized what I was telling myself. I changed course and told myself that in a few minutes my feet would be fine. Later that day I realized that I had worn them most of the day. I was pleased that my intention was actualized, but even more important, I interrupted my old negative habit pattern and directed my thoughts in the direction of what I wanted to experience. And that is my new intention!

Excellent, Mary! Interrupting an old habit pattern and creating a new intention is the first step.

Now, let me tell you about the old thought pattern. It's a decision you made in the past that is stored in your mind in a picture, like a frame in a piece of movie film. Just like you said. There is a picture of that moment when the doctor said, "This is a bad break."

Even though you as a spirit have made a new intention, that old picture is still there and can resurface. This is the point where a lot of people give up. They say, "Oh, I made that new intention and the old thing is still happening, so intention doesn't work!" But here's the thing to remember. *YOU, the spirit, made a new intention.* That change HAS occurred. Getting your mind and body to catch up is just details. The spirit intention is the important part.

So if you see the old thought pattern coming back, as a spirit, just assert your new intention again. And again and again until that old thought pattern disappears. Remember, you as a spirit have the power! Those old thoughts are just thoughts...

First, you change your intention as a spirit. Then you as a spirit change the thoughts in your mind. Then the body responds to the new thoughts in your mind.

A lot of people write about using your mind to change your body. That's correct to the degree that the body does respond to the mind. But what is usually missing is the deeper part of the existance of spirit. For it is the spirit that changes the mind. The mind is just data banks. It can't change itself any more than a computer can change it's data. Like a computer, the mind needs an operator. And that operator is the spirit.
