1st things first: Get people on your program…this means organize your caretaking team, fully communicating what you want and need, posting your mission and creating a charter of care AND making a binder of notes, recipies, preferences etc… Such that anyone can pick it up and contribute in the ways that make the biggest difference for you.
I guess I’ve always been a bit of a lone wolf…so it’s been a process to train people on my care team to know what I’m wanting, needing and looking for with a mimimal amount of frustration. IE: fresh raw veggie juice doesnot equal V-8! And avoiding dairy does infact include sour cream… I’m finding it useful to post guidelines and outline standards of how I want to handle things in and around the house for instance very helpful for everyone.
But let’s take a step beyond the basics~ there comes a time when you have to choose how your treatment will go and what elements it will include. There is an attitude and intention behind it all, something far beyond “make me comfortable” something that traffics in the realm of MAKE ME WELL. You have to create your purpose and get that purpose fully communicated into your family and friends, such that when you can no longer see it’s possible to heal they will hold the space for your full recovery while you self-correct. This is critical to enroll your environment to carrying the banner forward and pull your experience along with it if neccessary. Together you all create a healing ETHOS and ATMOSPHERE.
They must believe in the face of no agreement. If people are unwilling to keep the faith regardless of how you look, what you are saying, what it looks like right now YOU MUST allow them distance and get them out of you’re space. FAITH. KISS MY ASS IT’S GOING MY WAY unshakable, undauntable faith. Held close to the heart by a large group can and will cause miracles. It’s your way or the high way…period. Non-believers need not appear, apply nor approve. Fake it til you make it…you don’t have to know how just hold the space for the way to appear.
This is not easy. But it beats the heck out of being a space suck! Contribute Energy! Be clear that it takes something to hang with those of us that are intensly sculpting life out of every breath. This is the GAME of life folks…Let’s Play!
