The victim virus is responsible for too many health problems.
The victim virus is contagious. It will kill your spirit if you refuse to develop immunity to it. It can start by entering any weak or vulnerable point in your system, but usually, it begins by attacking your emotional health. You feel victimised, so you feel like a victim. This may be due to physical or emotional or mental mistreatment, a lack of respect, or worse, it may be due to bullying or abuse at some point. If this situation remains unresolved, then it moves onto your mental health. You think like a victim. When it has consumed your thoughts and attitude, and overtaken your emotions, it creeps into your behaviour. You begin to act like a victim.
When you think, feel and behave like a victim, the victim virus has no choice but to seep into your physical health and reduce your wellbeing. By now, you believe you are a victim.
You can reverse this process if you want. You can conquer the victim virus. You have to start undoing the victimisation process. Calling your spirit out of the painful wounds in your past is a fast way to do it, but first you have to learn to monitor your thoughts, observe your feelings and supervise your attention. Much is written about the impact of your thoughts and emotions on your life and getting what you want, so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel on those topics, but much less is written about paying attention to your attention.
Where ever your attention goes, your spirit follows. It goes into your past, or your present or your future.
Wherever your attention goes, your spirit flows into your past, your present or your future.
Wherever your attention goes, your spirit fills to overflow into your past, your present or your future.
Wherever your attention goes, your spirit drains away when you pay attention to people, places, objects and things that do not serve your body, soul and spirit. Wherever your attention goes, your spirit drains and leaks away into your past or future, forcing your body to run on empty in the present.
How long do you think you can run your body, emotions and mind on empty?
To put this question another way, how far can you drive your car on an empty tank of fuel?
Your health suffers without enough spirit to fuel your body.
Calling your spirit back home, into your body and into present time, instead of it being in your past, can refuel your body with enough energy to live well again. When more of your attention remains in the present, and much less is stuck in the past or obsessing about the future you increase your chances of improving your energy levels.
You can be disempowered or you can be empowered. Firstly, you have to recognise that you have the power of choice inside you. You have to own your power of choice. You have to choose rejection. You have to reject the victim virus in order to eject it out of your life.
Secondly, you have to activate your will power and use it to make a decision. You have to decide to supervise your spirit. You are in charge of your spirit. No one else can do it for you. You have to retrain your spirit to stay home, in your body and command it to remain there every single time you catch it trying to escape into your past or obsess about the future. Your effort has to be unrelenting if you want to improve your immunity to the victim virus.
Lastly – or maybe firstly – imagine the outcome of your efforts. Bask in the potential glory of an empowered life.
You can make a choice to do nothing. Or you can do something. You can opt to be a living spirit or a dead one. It’s as simple as that. It’s always your choice.
