“Hiding the Fact that We are Sick can be Detrimental to Healing”

As of late lots of people have many different types of diseases. And many of them try to hide their disease, keeping it secret so that no one knows what’s happening. Many times this is because we are brought up thinking that being ill makes us bad or less worthy, and that we should be healthy at all times. Perhaps it’s time to turn that around and know that deep down inside we deserve a great life… no matter what happens. 

One man with prostate cancer would not allow anyone to know he was going through health challenges. He wanted to hide it because in this day and age many people are shunned because they have disease. Just the opposite of what might happen if he were to open up and allow people to send light, love, and healing prayers his way. As it says in many spiritual text “When two or more gather in my name” - it’s talking about ALL things can be healed. In fact there was a study at Duke University showing that when people are prayed for they heal faster. 

Also many times ego gets in the way saying we can’t show weakness, and this is especially prevalent for men. And it’s sad because we are all weak at one time or another in our lives. And it means we are human, vulnerable, and need the help of others just like everyone else… but perhaps even a little more right now. 

First of all we have to heal the stigma of disease we feel inside. We heal that stigma by allowing everyone to know what’s happening so we can allow blessings of light to pour in. And that’s not easy if we have 50 or 60 years of dealing with everything ourselves and not allowing people into our lives… but it can be done. A shut door does not allow light to pour in, and the light of love is part of the healing process. And without sharing our predicament the light of love cannot shine… when we need it the most. 

Another person who has a viral neurological infection doesn’t want to talk about it or share anything. He’s had this disease for months and he’s shut out the world because he’s hiding the disease. It’s interesting that when we need moral support we shut the door and don’t allow anyone into our life. That’s really sad because even if a person does not survive the disease their can be amazing amounts of comfort and love that people can provide.

From a person experience I remember breaking my foot by falling off the house 3 or 4 years ago and I was in terrible pain. I ended up having a day long surgery where they inserted 11 screws and a plate in my foot, and it was painful as all get out, and I had to deal with the pain that night after the surgery. But thank heavens for all the family and friends that came over and gathered around my bed until 2AM. Finally while in pain I told everyone thank you for the support, but there is nothing you could do, and that I appreciated all their love and concern and would keep them posted as to my progress. I told them to go home, it’s late, all will be well, my healing will take time. But the feeling that all these people cared for me and loved me… was powerful… so powerful that I know for sure it was a big part of my healing process, and now I am back to walking 5 miles a day. It’s amazing what love can do, love is the most powerful healing agent in the world.

Even those that share with a spiritual support group heal faster… and even miracles happen when people pray for those who are sick. And these miracles have been talked about in Movies, TV Programs, Books, and Videos.  

Healing is a group effort and many people will attest to the group healing process. And there are many healing centers around the world that use a group model to create health and vitality. No one person is an island unto himself, we are all part of a huge mosaic of the world, and everyone in that mosaic is connected to everyone else. But to disconnect from that mosaic of love and healing is a choice. But there have been many studies showing that those who share their health challenge heal faster.  

Even one of the heads of the NIH, Dr. Krucoff said: A few years ago studies about prayer and healing would have be laughed at, but now— "All of these studies, all the reports, are remarkably consistent in suggesting the potential measurable health benefit associated with prayer or spiritual interventions.”

In fact studies show that those who have some kind of daily spiritual group practice get out of the hospital 3 times faster than those who don’t. Also older people who have a daily spiritual practice with others have strokes 50% less often than those who don’t. And those who have some kind of spiritual group practice are 13 to 14 times less likely to die from surgery. These are amazing testimonials of the great power of spiritual connection, about allowing love to come into our life from people who care.  

Be not afraid to share health challenges… we are here to help.

Why You Should be Honest About Your Health Challenges

Hiding the fact that we are sick can be detrimental to healing.

Just the opposite happens when we open up and allow people to send light, love, and healing prayers. As it says in many spiritual texts, “When two or more gather in my name...." Meaning that ALL things can be healed when we come together. There was a study at Duke University showing that when people are prayed for they heal faster.

There are also times when we allow ego to get in the way, letting it convince us that we can’t show weakness, and this is especially prevalent for men. In truth, we are all weak at one time or another in our lives. We are human, vulnerable and need the help of others just like everyone else… but perhaps even a little more right now.

It is important that we heal the stigma of disease we feel inside. We heal that stigma by allowing everyone to know what’s happening so we can allow blessings of light to pour in.
