What Are You Going To Do About It?

A friend relayed a story about telling his doctor that he felt horrible every time he ate pasta. His doctor said, “Quit eating pasta!”

It reminded me of getting a medical work-up because I thought I had an ulcer. My gut hurt but all the tests were negative. I had been in a protracted argument with someone and I was giving away my power by not taking action. I was awaiting his permission and even though I was free to act on my own, I wanted his agreement.

I said to the doctor, “I’d hate to think that every time I get upset, my gut is going to hurt.” He asked me, “What are you going to do about it?”

I took action (without anyone’s consent) and my gut was instantly cured. I’ve since learned that when I’m not true to myself and can’t hear my intuition, the truth is in the body.
