Everyone has a doctor in him or her. We just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. ~ Hippocrates
The holiday season is upon us. And so too is the flu season—or so the news media (and probably the drug companies) would have us believe. But I know many of you reading this do not buy into that propaganda.
I quit believing in flu season long ago. The last time I got a flu shot was about 30 years ago. That year is also the last time I ever had the flu. As far as I’m concerned, flu season is a myth. So let’s focus on the joy of the holiday season, and forget about the flu season.
This week our good friend Barbara Clark is going to talk about the deeper meaning of the flu season, and the aches and pains that go with it. Here she is.
Why Aches & Pains You Thought You’d Healed Reappear at Holiday Time: It’s Not For the Reason You Think!
The holiday/flu/cold season is almost upon us and it can be a very challenging time!
For many people, it’s happy, fun and busy! For some people it is deeply painful and lonely.
It can also be a time when old aches and pains you thought had healed reappear! You might choose to believe in things like “the flu season” or “seasonal ailments,” although, if you are reading this, you probably know it goes much deeper than that!
Listen To Your Body!
Family, festivities, anniversaries and celebrations create powerful emotional attachments. Memories come to the surface whether we are consciously aware of them or not. Even if you don’t remember, your body does!
Whether they are happy or sad, of love or loss, unresolved emotions around these memories can trigger you big time!
If you are not conscious of them, the chances are your body will manifest some type of ailment in an effort to bring these unresolved emotional issues to your attention. For example, lower back pain often coincides with anniversaries. These occasions confront us with our own mortality and can bring up deep layers of fear and insecurity about what lies ahead or about our standing in life.

How Do I Know Which Emotions Have Been Re-triggered?
Listen to your body! If you are not consciously aware of which feeling or emotion has been triggered, the painful area in your body will give you a clue.
Download my free Guide To What Your Everyday Aches & Pains Really Mean to discover which areas tend to hold specific emotional issues. Or click on the image map on my home page to find healing clearings and affirmations which tell you the emotional issues most likely to be causing the pain.
Check Your Beliefs!
Become aware of your words and beliefs!
If you tell everyone, “I get three colds every winter,” should you be surprised when your body manifests three colds? Your body hears your words and does its best to follow your instructions. If you say, “I always slip on the ice,” are you surprised when you slip on the ice? Take a good look at your beliefs, thoughts and words.
A Top Tip To Stay Well
If you don’t want to get coughs, colds, sinus infections, etc., PLEASE don’t watch ads for cold and flu! You might think I’ve forgotten the word “remedies” at the end of that last sentence, but I didn’t. Remember all these ads are there to make money and constantly reminding you it’s the “flu season” is a surefire way to bring flu into your consciousness. Whenever you see them, remind yourself that is no longer your reality. Affirm that you are healthy, your immune system is powerful and re-set your intention to remain healthy. Give no energy or attention to the imaginary “flu season.”
I wish everyone a very happy, loving and peaceful Holiday Season.
