Eliminate The Belief That Your Illness Is Genetic

Many illnesses, emotional and otherwise, are often said to be genetic in origin. When one is told that their particular problem is of a genetic nature it often leaves them feeling helpless since, to date, the idea of reversing something that is stored deep within one's structural DNA, which exists in every single cell of one's body, is considered an impossibility.

So where is one left when one is given such a "genetic diagnosis". Well apart from feeling helpless one is also given the option to try to correct the symptoms of their problem, and only the symptoms, with some form of medication or other supplementation. This can come from allopathic or alternative medicine sources.

The root cause, i.e. the genetic root, is still in place however and apparently can never be eliminated. Hence we have a situation where the treatment is essentially a palliative one. That is, it only tries to stem the symptoms but not eliminate the cause itself. Unfortunately, many individuals accept this as a solution to their problem because of the fundamental belief that the illness is genetic and therefore its complete elimination is accepted as impossibility.

In an article entitled "All You Problems Are Based in False Beliefs" I make the point that any problem is essentially the result of deeply held false beliefs. One belief that causes a problem for an individual is the belief that their particular illness is of a genetic nature.

Now this may sound strange to you perhaps. You might say, well that's just a fact, and I can't change it, so what does the belief have to do with it? Well as I hope to show you here it is the "belief" that your illness is genetic that is the problem.

Now I'm not suggesting that you choose to believe that it isn't. That would just be going into denial. Denial is really a state of trying to lie to oneself about something that they already believe inside. The purpose of such denial would supposedly be about trying to stem the sadness about knowing that the illness is genetic and that nothing can be done about it.

What I am suggesting however is a brief analysis of the belief itself. Let me show you what I mean:

We choose to believe that a given illness is genetic so that,

a) It will allow us to accept that there is little we can do about it other than try to manage it, so that,

In accepting it we can feel better, more at peace, happier and so we can live a more contented life.

Or that,

b) It will relieve us of responsibility for having caused it, so that,

We can feel we're not at fault so that,

We can feel better, more at peace, happier and so we can live a more contented life.

Or that,

c) It will allow us to work hard at finding a way to find a cure, so that,

We can find it, be cured and so that,

We can feel better, more at peace, happier and so we can live a more contented life.

Hence in all three scenarios above the conclusion appears to be that:

d) Believing that our illness is genetic allows us to feel better, more at peace, happier and so we can live a more contented life.

Now does statement d) above make sense to you? Probably not. However please notice whether you agreed with a), b) or c) above from which d) was derived in each case.

So you see, if you believe any one of these and you don't believe d) you are faced with a paradox, aren't you?

On the one hand you believe something and then in the next breath you say it's not true. So which is it?

If you recognize that d) is not true for you then quietly acknowledge this to yourself and then notice how you feel.

Now if you wish, say this statement to your self:"My illness is genetic" and notice how it feels.

Does it make you feel good inside. If not then please acknowledge this to yourself and again notice how you feel.

You see this belief is actually "toxic" to you, isn't it.

That is because it likely makes you feel helpless, hopeless and sad inside. Do you therefore want this kind of toxic belief living inside you?
