Symptoms of Colds And The Secrets To Unlocking Them
According to the mayo clinic some the symptoms of colds are: Runny or stuffy nose, Itchy or sore throat, Cough, Congestion, Slight body aches or a mild headache, Sneezing, Watery eyes, Low-grade fever Mild fatigue.
You are probably aware of that already. What do you do when these symptoms start? Most people immediately come to conclusion that they are on the down hill slide to a few rotten days in bed or may be a day of work or school. What if every one of those symptoms of colds were actually an awareness your body was trying to tell you?
It has probably crossed your mind occasionally that perhaps you should be exercising more, or you should be looking after your self a bit more, that perhaps your body is trying to tell you eat more healthier foods or you should take a brake from work. This article is not about that sort of awareness. This article is about really engaging your body and asking what the symptoms are so that you become more aware. The target is awareness not trying to fix what you have already decided is wrong.
The thing with with symptoms of colds, or anything else for that matter, if you come to any sort of conclusion your body will create that for you so you can have the rightness of your point of view. Something like this “See I told you I was over worked!” or “I am terrible at sticking to a healthy diet!” or “My body has not got a strong immune system!”…
Some of you are resisting that. But truth, have a look at it, have a look at your kids, when they get the symptoms of colds, how often are they just wanting to get out of school? And remember when you did it? I remember when I was young I didn’t want to play football in the snow, so that morning I told my mum I felt hot and thought I had a fever. She brought out the thermometer as I knew she would. I also asked for a nice hot cuppa to ward of the cold. Guess what I did as my mum left the room? I stuck that thermometer in the hot tea. Don’t tell me you never used a symptom to get out of something! LOL.
But the really funny thing is how many of you then actually bought your own story and got sick even though you weren’t really?
Don’t let your kids read this! LOL.
Then there are things like adverts on the television, when cold and flu season hits they are ready to help you soldier on. They love to play on the symptoms of colds to manipulate you you into buying their product. How many of you actually buy that point of view that a cold and flu season is real? How many of have a bathroom cabinet of medications that you have bought for the cold and flu season?
What do you do when someone has symptoms of colds such as sneezing in the elevator with you. Do you avoid it? Do you hope you are not going to catch it? Do dive for cover. And if you get a little sniffle about 3 hours later do actually hope you haven’t caught that cold. If you do any of that then you are well on your way to instructing your body to create cold symptoms for you.
Here is that long awaited secret to unlocking these cold symptoms. Ask a question like “Mine or someone else’s?” For every symptom ask this. If you even get a little inkling that you are just buying the symptom as real then it ain’t yours. If the symptoms persist continue asking, you have had a whole life time of conditioning your self to what cold symptoms mean, it may take more than one question to change it.
If the symptoms of colds persists ask your body “Body what awareness are you giving me that I am not listening too?” And then wait. Don’t come to conclusion, you are talking to your body not your mind. Your mind will only give you the answers you have conditioned your self with. Keep asking. This is about building an awareness, about your body and not buying symptoms as meaning something that they are not.
Your body is amazing it does all this healing and do you ever acknowledge that. Or do you thank your doctor or the medication. It is not the doc or the medication that makes the change, it is your body, it is your body that takes the medication and does something with it, not your doctor. It is even your body that gets you to the drug store in the first place! Do you really think symptoms of colds are something that your amazing body cannot change?
So, please acknowledge your cute, sweet body and ask it to forgive you for all the conclusions you have come to and made it feel sick when perhaps it was not necessary. Good body, nice body, what would you like body? Once you get the knack of a different way of being, of asking questions and not coming to conclusion you will not ever have to suffer the symptoms of colds again. But then you are probably saying that is impossible. If that is your point of you then you are right! But if you are willing to change your point of view you may be the one that does not have to spend all that time in bed feeling like crap.

I have been cold and flu free for three years now and if I do have a symptom I will ask these questions and change it with in 10 seconds to 12 hours, with out drugs, doctors, diet or anything else.
