As of this year… I’ve only had one ‘cold’ in 18 years.
I remember 15 years ago, I hadn’t had a cold in about 3 years and I was talking to a girlfriend and she asked me did I ever get sick? Jokingly, I told her that I didn’t have time to get sick.
She totally cracked up and ever since then, that was what I always said when people asked about or talked about getting sick.
I remember a few years later, when I was running my paging company, I was having a conversation with one of the employees who’d asked me about taking off a few sick days. He said, ” Man, I feel horrible, I need to take a few days off.”
I said sure
He went on to ask, “You never take any days off, do you ever get sick?”
I told him, “No, I haven’t scheduled getting sick…I might put it on my calendar in a few years or so, when things slow down.”
He laughed and we went on our way.
Fast forward to 2006…post knowledge of the Law of Attraction. I can totally understand why I never got sick. Between the first time I made that statement to Kim, back in 1991, I’ve probably said “I don’t have time to get sick” a few hundred times.
I said it so much that it became a superficial conscious belief. I say superficial, because intellectually, I didn’t really think I was too busy get sick, but my subconscious didn’t know the difference. My subconscious said, “hey this guy ‘doesn’t have time’ to get sick so I need to make that happen”… and it did.
And here’s where things get a little cloudy for most. I became a vegetarian around that time…just out of the blue, I stopped eating meat. I also started finding out and reading about herbs – and this was back in the early 90’s when vegetarianism wasn’t the cultural taboo it is now. And around that time – virtually no one was using herbs.
Now it’s easy to say, “Oh that’s why you didn’t get sick…it was because of the herbs and being a vegetarian.” Well I know a LOT of vegetarians who still get sick.
I’m making two very important points here:
1) Saying I don’t have time to get sick over and over and over again, was telling (programming) my subconscious to make “not getting sick” my reality.
2) My subconscious responded by tapping into the Universe and bringing me the information and resources to help keep me healthy.
So, here’s a classic example of subconscious manifestation at work.
If you’re having trouble manifesting the things you want in your life, create an affirmation around it and follow it up wit belief that you already have it.
Keep in mind that I didn’t say, “I’m not going to get sick…” I said, “I was too busy to get sick…” as if that were the reality I was living already. Affirmations work…but only when they’re followed with emotion and belief that they are already yours.
Also, be conscious of what negative affirmations you’re saying regularly that might be mis-creating for you. I talked about this in the “Are You Killing Yourself? post.
Just as I never got sick. A buddy of mine (she doesn’t want me to use her name) gets sick all the time… and guess what her favorite phrase is?
You got it….. You Make Me Sick!!!
A few people were curious about the one time I did get sick… it was about 3 years ago, when my fianc? left me and I was ‘sick with heartache.” I told all my friends how sick I was that she left and I’ll be doggone if I didn’t end up with some horrible flu-like bug for a week.
Amazing isn’t it…?
