From Sick to Healthy via Determination

They told me….

They told me I wouldn’t amount to anything

They told me I would always have to be on anti-depressants

They told me I would always have to have someone to look after me

They told me I would never get better or recover from my illnesses

They told me that this was my lot and that is what life is like

They told me that there are no such things as friends

They told me money is always hard to come by

They told me my family was an unlucky family

They told me I was nothing special and the only way to get love from people is to please them

They told me that the only way to get love and attention from my family was to be ill

And the list went on and on….


Please challenge every thought and ask yourself: Is this really how you think or is this a thought that was planted into your Subconscious mind all these years?

My name is Lela Starseed and I have been on an extraordinary journey. Throughout most of my adult life, I was unable to work due to emotional, mental and physical difficulties. I had back problems, knee problems, neck problems, repetitive strain injury, severe depression, unexplained illnesses and finally I developed chronic fatigue syndrome which I had for about 5 years.

But with much determination and many fights that was within me, I was determined that I would not give up on this life. I have now completely recovered from all of these. Every single one. And I recovered because I’ve let go of anger, resentment, I’ve let go of fear and all those negative emotions that were completely consuming me.  And for many, many years I screamed, I shouted and cried the pain out until there was nothing left. I also used the power of the mind to completely recover from the chronic fatigue. One day I woke up and decided this would be the day that I made the decision to return to full health and say strongly to myself that I am fantastically well and healthy!

And so after all those years of soul searching I have now found my voice and there is no going back. I am writing a book called ‘It’s about the belief.’ Which shows that no matter who you are and what you have been through you can get through it because I did!

About 4 months ago I decided to leave a boring mindless job that was crushing my soul to embrace my life purpose. People kept saying to me you need to get a job, you need to get a job even if it is to support your spiritual work but the guidance that I kept on getting, kept on saying no!

I am now running groups, giving people voice healing and giving talks on my recovery from chronic fatigue and the power of the mind and completely expressing who you are! Because keeping your thoughts and feelings inside of me made me ill and I want to encourage everyone I meet or connect with to let them out!

On Monday 9th July I was guided to phone Hayhouse Radio and speak with Wayne Dyer on his weekly radio show and my immediate thought was that you will never get through! And then I thought why not?! I got through straight away and that encounter with him confirmed to me that miracles happen every day and you can do anything you want to! And I always say,

‘It’s about the belief! The belief that you can heal yourself and recover from any illness or disease because that is all it is a belief!’

    Absolutely – belief is the key! Belief that you are unique, with your own unique combination of gifts to the world. There are no limits, you are who you choose to be, you can be free, and you know what you can be better than anyone else. People may have said differently, and planted their own confused negative beliefs and emotions into you, but because these things are in you, you have complete power to own and control them – they may think they know what’s best for you, but you know better. Your past doesn’t have to be your future, where there’s life there’s hope, and it’s never too late to start being who you were born to be. And once you set out on that new path, believing that you are on the right path, even though there are ups and downs, and you often can’t see your destination. The benefits will come, often at first in unexpected ways, and when they do, keeping a record of them will sustain your journey. You cannot ever return to square one, because once you’ve learned how to overcome a particular obstacle, that knowledge is with you for life. Keep putting one foot in front of the other, and no matter the distance or the pace, you’ll get there.

    Thank you for sharing your powerful story. We have to let go of and process all the shadow Self stuff. I believe our healing is wrapped up in our awareness level. Your story demonstrates the power of letting go.
    Very inspiring.

    That’s wonderful for you! But so many of us are still ill in spite of “letting go”. It’s painful to read this and wonder why we are not healed. We’ve done the work! But good for you.

    What an amazing story…Thank you! I have struggled and still do with Fibromyalgia and depression; and no the medications do not help…but there are moments when I am grounded, more intune with my inner soul …it takes so much discipline! Life, family, conflicts, negativity and more toxic obstacles obscure my path and vision. Thanks again for sharing…it’s the boost I needed.

    It is interesting that you talk of Wayne Dryer…he was my first guru that I referred to when starting workshops on Self-Esteem many many moons ago…a wonderul soul who keeps getting better and better:)

    Bless you for the work that you do and being so authentic in sharing.

    How wonderful is this! I know the misery you have endured, and I know how tough it is to climb out of it. People tell you to “pull yourself up by the boot-straps; easier said than done when you are in a “deep, dark” depression. If we realize that although we may not be able to change the events that happen to us, we can always change our attitude. That is not an original thought. I found an organization that started out as “Recovery, Inc.” in 1937. It is now nationwide and in many foreign countries. “Change your thoughts frm insecure to secure” is just one of the many tools we use. I began in 1963, dragging my feet all the way. Recovery International is a self-help organization, and they believe there is no hopeless case. You’ve done a wonderful job on your own. Good luck in the future.
