Hello Farhan, thank you and I’m so pleased my book is helping you!
That’s reasonable at the start I think as you are starting to take steps in the direction of more allowing and less resistance. To me it sounds like you have a lot of resistance to the work so “deciding” to do it only makes you feel worse. If the work is necessary and you must do it, then you need to find a way of changing the way you feel about it. For example your family can’t starve because you don’t want to cook, so it’s important to change how you are perceiving the “work”.
I usually try and find a positive aspect to the work, to make it easier for me to start. Or when the task is so large or complicated it’s overwhelming me, I break it down into smaller more digestible sub-tasks because it feels good to at least finish one task, however small it is. You still feel like you’re making progress in the right direction.
Just remember to be easy about it and kind to yourself. I used to force myself to study, work, spend time with people I didn’t like and it was crippling me.
These days, even when I decide to do something from a place of excitement and passion, I may not have the feeling or momentum to continue it the next week. In my case it’s usually from physical exhaustion, if I don’t sleep well or rest, I lose all excitement about my life. So I quickly make sure I address this by taking time out, cutting technology out and just resting my mind or body. You need to work out what your triggers are.
Re downhill decisions, it’s 100% possible if you pay attention to how you feel. You feel better about downhill decisions, so try to feel each decision and see which feels better to follow. Then go in that direction. You will be surprised to find that later you might actually be excited about decisions you’ve previously made, and didn’t follow through with.
Best of luck!

Thea, that is wonderful news! Thank you for sharing your story and I’m looking forward to hearing more good news from you in the future 🙂
Have a lovely Christmas!
Your body is not able to heal until you heal emotionally. So do whatever it takes to make yourself feel happy.
Did you study the resources I mentioned on this website?
As with anything you want to practice, you must get started on practicing happiness and you will get better over time. Just pay attention to how you feel, it tells you if you are practicing well or not.
Thanks for reaching out to me. In order to heal any problem in your life, you need to heal emotionally. Once your body is in a healthy state emotionally, it will heal itself naturally.
What you should do is take your focus off the problem and give yourself some relief from the stress of trying to “fix it”. Your ultimate goal is to get happier because happiness is tremendously good for your body. When you are in a bad state emotionally (upset, angry, worried, embarrassed) your body is under stress and cannot heal itself.
I expect that as you start to look for ways to keep yourself happy, the real solution to your problem will either reveal itself or your body will naturally heal itself and one day you will realise your issues are a thing of the past.
Have you read any of my websites articles on self healing? I suggest you read these.
I have also outlined in great detail how my body healed itself after I started to feel better, and I recommend you also read my book The Alchemy of Healing. Everyone who has read it has found success in their healing path.
