Another condition of dis-ease is the lost identification. The lost identification can be the empty nest syndrome for a housewife. She was a housewife, raised the children, now the children are now leaving the nest, going to college, and moving on. Who is she now? What is her identity? Or there’s the corporate executive whose company gets downsized, so he/she gets forced into retirement, and goes out of business. Who is he now? Or you might lose stuff. Like your house or home, your business, your boat, your car, or whatever it is, and you just become this person of loss.
What happens is that unconsciously or consciously, you don’t know who you are and you give your unconscious a clean slate to create whatever your unconscious thinks you should be, you might end up being the person with the physical issue. This is not conducive to wellness.
Here are some ideas for wellness in dealing with your identity. First of all, you’re a spiritual being. Your soul was created by God at the beginning of time and will continue to be here to eternity. Your soul was created by God. For the Bible readers, Genesis, “And, on the seventh day, God rested.” Everything was done. It was complete, nothing more to do. So, that means your soul and that soul essence has been here since the beginning and will continue to be around forever. That’s who you really are. That’s your true inheritance.
I mentioned earlier that Christians and their view of Jesus who is the Son of God, have the belief that “Even the least among us can do all that I can do and even greater things.” So, you begin to internalize that. You’re no longer that person with the “stuff.” You’re no longer the person with the “dis-ease.” If you knew who you really were, and if you knew what you were really connected to, and if you really knew who walked beside you, dis-ease could not exist.
