Change Happens when You Leap into the Unknown

I have a friend who suffers from extremely painful episodes of intestinal problems. She has had numerous colonoscopies and gastroscopies, but the results are always clean.

And yet, during one of her bouts, she couldn’t eat for weeks due to pain.

It’s painful for me to idly watch her suffer, knowing there is nothing I can do.

No matter how often I try to talk to her, she refuses to listen. And that’s ok. It’s her choice.

I see this pattern quite a lot in people who suffer from illness. My training allows me to predict where they will likely end up.

Yet, even with this insight, I believe I have no right to intervene in another person’s life, unless they come to me and ask for help.

When I see someone locked in struggle, I want to say: Just do it. Go for it. You will feel so much better if you leap into the unknown and try something new.

But, taking a leap of faith is not something many people are willing to do.

My patients’ successes depend 100 percent on their readiness to explore the unknown.

They must be willing and ready to look inside themselves, to listen to their souls.

By the time most of my clients come to me, they have experienced a period of agony and dismay. That’s when they decide: “This is it! I’m done with it. I will try something different to change my life.”

Change and healing only happen from the inside out, not the other way around.

You will know when the time is right.

You will feel when it’s time to be bold and leap into the unknown.
