“The highest level of health consciousness is when taking consistent care of yourself becomes your service to humanity.” -Dr. Jaena Stanley-Gonzaga
1. FIRST STAGE OF HEALTH CONSCIOUSNESS
The first stage of health consciousness focuses on getting rid of symptoms. The main purpose at this time is to quickly return to the daily patterns and activities of life with minimal change in lifestyle. The attention is put on survival needs at the expense of your health. At this stage, how good you feel is not a clear reflection of your state of health and wellbeing. The common mindset is no symptoms equals good health. This stage of health consciousness is focused on the sick care approach and can also be considered as emergency care.
Your ability to adapt to the environment is challenged. Your natural state of healing is pushed back rather than prioritized by your body. And, you may be unaware of the limitations that are holding you back from your full potential.
This mindset has a use and is necessary to be functional with all the stress that is encountered daily to survive in the moment.
2. SECOND STAGE OF HEALTH CONSCIOUSNESS
The second stage of health consciousness goes beyond symptoms. This level focuses on creating and choosing the healthiest environment and lifestyle inside and out for healing, prevention, and wellness. Wouldn't it be wonderful to feel great for no reason?
At this stage, it becomes more important to equally give and receive. It is also very important to recharge, eat well, think well, and move well. Your internal feedback mechanism is more clear and improves daily. You are more aware of what holds you back such as unhealthy choices, perceptions, habits, patterns, beliefs, relationships, and so on. Most importantly, action is taken to address your limitations. Guidance is welcomed with this mindset to cut to the chase. Once the limitations are addressed, your true potential is expressed in healing, health and life. The ability to creatively adapt to the inner and outer environment improves.
The attention and priority is to finally take care of you. You are the priority for everything else to work.
3. THIRD STAGE OF HEALTH CONSCIOUSNESS
The third level of health consciousness builds on the second stage. The catalyst for you to take care of yourself and enhance healing in all areas of life is now for the benefit of everyone, including yourself, by choice.
You now have a purpose greater than yourself. This wakes up every aspect of self down to the cellular and energetic level. This is where miraculous healing shifts occur. You are choosing to take care of yourself in order to give and serve those you love with greater impeccability, focus, strength, flexibility, vulnerability, authenticity, patience, humor and love. You become an inspiration, an effortless spark for everyone to heal, live and thrive!
This mindset focuses on giving your heart and gifts fully and completely without any expectations in return. Receiving the hearts and gifts of others with even greater gratitude and love are equally welcomed.
This stage opens infinite and untapped capabilities and creativity that were once dormant. Health consciousness has now transformed into conscious living and being.
