Tinnitus Patients - Create
Your Life by Design
Contrary to popular belief, life is not a series
of random negative situations. It’s true that bad things happen
to good people and good things happen to bad people. However, most
people do not even realize that it’s possible to avoid most
negative experiences just by changing their thought processes and
There is no mysterious force in the universe that causes random
suffering. I do realize that this statement will have no effect
on those who do not have faith in the natural laws of the universe.
But the truth is, many people do not understand or are even aware
of these laws. And, that’s why life seems like one big long
epic drama with many painful experiences occurring with frightening
Tinnitus, or loud ringing in the ears, is one of those diseases
that can strike anyone, anywhere at anytime. Therefore it would
seem to most people that it’s just bad luck to get tinnitus
or the law of averages. Yet my contention is, for those who have
tinnitus that on some level the tinnitus is invited and manifested
Now, that’s probably going to be a hard pill to swallow but
the simple fact is; regardless of how anyone gets tinnitus, it’s
pretty much here to stay. Since there is no proven cure, it’s
now up to the tinnitus sufferer to figure out what to do next.
How is it possible to even say that someone invited tinnitus into
their life? Because, I believe that tinnitus is a non-life-threatening
ailment that can actually set into motion true healing. If one begins
to understand how life can be created by design (with intention)
rather than by default (by chance) then it’s possible people
can pretty much get whatever they want in life. Yet, most people
never seem to come to this realization. Very often it takes a life
threatening situation for people to take stock of their lives.
Tinnitus cannot kill you unless you let it. Therefore it’s
a gift. It’s a gift that’s causing you to wake up and
smell the roses instead of wallow in grief. I always ask tinnitus
sufferers to think back to the way life was before they had tinnitus.
Usually they say that life was much better but, after they ponder
the question some more they realize that life was not all that rosy.
In my case, before tinnitus, my life was a mess. I didn’t
realize it at the time but it was. Since going through the depression
and anxiety of tinnitus in its early stages my life has turned around
dramatically. I’m happier than I’ve ever been and I
believe that tinnitus helped me to achieve that.
So, how can tinnitus be a good thing? Simply put, tinnitus can
cause you to rethink your path. It allows you to realize just what’s
wrong with your thinking that’s causing you to attract negative
situations, people and experiences into your life. It’s a
wake up call, and a good one at that. Why? Because, like it said
it won’t kill you. Only you can do that. Therefore it’s
severe enough to cause behavioral change yet not severe enough to
kill you. Perfect!
The truth is, unless you stop focusing on your tinnitus, and use
it to fulfill your life’s purpose then you’ll suffer
until the day you die. Think of it this way; if your tinnitus disappeared
tomorrow, how would that impact your life? Would you then go after
everything you’ve ever wanted? Would you start living your
big dream? In most cases the answer is no. Therefore, tinnitus is
not the cause of your failures, you are. To blame tinnitus would
be a mistake. Blame, justification and denial are negative emotionally
charged energies that attract like energy. What does negative energy
attract? Of course it attracts negative situations, people and events.
My suggestion to you is that if you embrace your tinnitus and use
it to propel you in a new direction in search of whatever pot of
gold you desire then you’ve mastered life’s truest test.
Until you step into it, you can never achieve what you were sent
here to do. And, what is that? To live, learn, share, prosper and
be happy. Otherwise, what’s the point?
