Another idea, don’t allow people around you to talk about medical issues. What happens is when people are discussing their medical issues, it becomes a focal part of the conversation, becomes focal part of their identity. They’re no longer this person. They are now this new person with the “issue” and because of the “issue,” they get attention. They have something to talk about.They’re somebody now or they think they’re somebody now.
The last thing you want entering into your conscious or unconscious idea is an identity with a physical issue. Let’s look at our example of when a person yawns and another person on the other side of the room starts yawning. What went across the room? The idea.
Looking back at our sneeze example, do you think it’s any different when somebody coughs or sneezes on the other side of the room and next thing you know, somebody on the other side of the room starts coughing and sneezing? Were there really these “sneezing molecules,” some germs that went across the room that infiltrated a body that couldn’t handle it? That their immune system was so weak it could not deal with whatever got across the room? No. What they couldn’t handle was the idea. “This person sneezed, so this means I must get this and sneeze.”
Well, let’s take it up a notch.
This person’s talking about their personal condition, all the treatments they go through and all the “stuff,” and all the symptoms and the stuff happening, and things falling off and all kinds of things. Where is that going to end? Is it in your conscious? Yes. Is it in your unconscious? Yes.
How healthy is that? Do not...and I mean it when I say it...do not allow people to discuss their medical, physical issues around you. That is not conducive for your wellness. In fact, it’s quite the opposite and you’re not helping them. You are fueling their fire and reinforcing their identity. There’s no benefit in it. This why throughout my teachings. the term “issue” is used instead of using a medical term.
