Have you watched Life Rebalanced Chronicles yet? If you haven’t, this is an episode you don’t want to miss! It’s heartbreaking and uplifting; I couldn’t watch it without crying!
When I got my diagnosis, it broke my spirit. I was questioning so many things in my life. I only had so many hours that I felt good, was I making the best use of my limited energy? Why was this happening to me? What would this suffering mean for my future? How will I live like this? Finding the answers to these questions made some of my worst days became spiritual turning points.
VeDA gives an excellent description of this powerful episode here:
In the third episode of the Life Rebalanced Chronicles – Spirit Rebalanced – we look inward, as we explore the spiritual practices that lift us out of the darkness when we are struggling with a devastating illness. Living with a vestibular disorder challenges you in many ways. How do we summon the inner strength to face these challenges? Often, people struggling with chronic illness go through a grief process similar to that described by Elizabeth Kübler-Ross – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. Many find that having a spiritual practice helps them deal with this grief and contributes to their overall well-being. Gratitude, forgiveness (of oneself and others), prayer and meditation are just a few examples of practices that support our inner wellness. Other examples include humor, self-compassion, solitude, journaling, art/creative endeavors, service to others, and spending time in nature.
