How to Release Fibromyalgia with the Law of Attraction – Cure Fibromyalgia and Attract Wellness
Summary: As I feel, I attract. So, by the Law of Attraction, when I spend at least 51% of my time in a state of resentment, anger, frustration, and worry, I am attracting fibromyalgia or a disease like fibro.
Curing anything is really a misnomer when it comes to the Law of Attraction because you don’t cure or treat your illness with the Law of Attraction; you attract wellness instead.
So How Did I Attract Fibromyalgia?
Now, there are hundreds of definitions of fibromyalgia, and hundreds of theories as to exactly what causes the illness and the symptoms. Read my short version below or check out my long version here: detailed description of what I believe is fibromyalgia and what must be done to treat it.
My short version is stress chemicals that are created when negative emotion is present aren’t always cleared from the body and so are deposited in cells. Muscle cells, nerve cells, tendon cells, organ cells, every cell. When enough of them are built up in enough cells this creates pain and fatigue as the body is constantly trying to clear the cells but never able to. The cells are overworked, overstressed, and nerve cells especially are constantly irritated.
How did I attract this state of dis-ease?
I decided (completely unconsciously), or accepted the influence of others who had decided (unconsciously) that negative emotions were an unfortunate reality of life that were to be expressed and acted upon, or, ignored, suppressed, resisted, stomped out (especially in others) and feared.
I lived in a state of anxiety, irritation, anger, blame, or resentment a lot of the time. As I got angry at something and gave my attention to that thing – ranting and complaining about it, it got worse. Then that bad thing and my subsequent reaction attracted something I considered worse, and on an on until my life was mostly pretty crappy.
The older I got the more ‘negative’ things I attracted, the more negative things I attracted, the more negative emotions I had.
The more negative emotions I had, the more my body deteriorated. The more my body deteriorated, the more I noticed it was deteriorating and the more I got scared and anxious about it and then ignored it. The more I got scared and anxious about it, the worse it got. And I was stuck.
Now, this isn’t to say my life was horrible. I have always had a job. I took trips. I did fun things sometimes. I had a husband who loved me. I always had food. I owned a house. I had cute dogs. I enjoyed reading books. I enjoyed exploring. In short, I was pretty normal.
Negativity is the Norm, as is Illness
But, I believe it is normal, in our society, to have a negative attitude about many things. Most everybody I used to spend time with and work with cannot go more than a few minutes in a conversation without complaining about something.
And most everyone I used to spend time with spends a lot of time throwing their back out or dealing with unexplained pain or psoriasis or irritable bowel syndrome or the flu or colds or bladder infections or weight gain or fatigue. I believe all states of illness or less than ideal wellness are brought to us by our willingness to live in states of negativity.
How, Exactly, Do I Attract Wellness
- Pay attention to how I am feeling right now and try to feel just a bit better, even if I already feel good
I pay close attention to how I am feeling at all times. Whenever I feel a bit tense or anxious or fearful I stop what I am doing and ask myself “what thought caused that feeling?” When I know what thought I try to work it into a better feeling place.
So, if the thought is “I’m worried I won’t have the money to pay my rent” and the resulting feeling is worry or anxiety. I do whatever I can to find a thought that feels better than that – NOT a thought that I think will feel better but a thought that *actually* feels better.
Which means I must be listening or feeling for my feelings while I am working at this process.
I can do it on paper or in my head. On paper is usually better for me.
Abraham-Hicks processes are excellent. They have many designed specifically to help you release resistance no matter how you are feeling.
- I deliberately guide my thoughts, all my thoughts, to the best feeling thought I can find.
See, in order to allow wellness, the bulk of your thoughts, which means at least 51% of your thoughts on a daily basis must be allowing thoughts. Allowing thoughts are thoughts that make you feel good. Thoughts that make you feel good are thoughts that allow wellness, abundance, health, love, and peace to flow into your life.
If you are thinking about your fibromyalgia, only you will know which thoughts feel good to you, but for me, for a long time, the thoughts that felt good to me were:
- This stretch really feels good.
- I feel really good today (if that wasn’t true I could hope to feel good tomorrow, or imagine the last time I felt good, just to try to get that good emotion)
- my muscles are responding well
- I bet I will be able to work a little bit tomorrow
- I can’t wait to work a little bit tomorrow
Today, thoughts about my fibromyalgia that feel good to me are
- I love how wonderfully and completely my body returned to a state of wellness
- I love that I have all these wonderful processes to share with others
- I love that I feel so wonderfully good today
- I am so glad I discovered this stretch, it really feels good
- Boy, did I sleep great last night
- I really appreciate my body and how it taught me about balance
- I am so glad I found my massage therapist – she has been instrumental in my healing.
- Yay! I get to get a massage today!
Now, the trick is to deliberately guide your thoughts to what feels good emotionally, no matter what the circumstances. Abraham-Hicks provides an emotional guidance scale, to kind of give us a guide as to what we could be reaching for.
Abraham says that there really are only two emotions: one feels good and one feels bad, but we call them different things depending on how intensely we feel the emotion and the circumstances we are in.

So, for an example from my own life.
I think I spend a lot of my time currently in Joy, Appreciation, Love, Passion, Enthusiasm, and Belief – sometimes contentment, thought I have to be careful here. If I dip down to boredom I seem to be sucked down to lower states.
If I feel myself in boredom I start reaching for enthusiasm really quick (mostly I just grab a book or project I am currently excited about – writing this book on how I cured my Fibro has been incredibly exciting to me for weeks now. It’s kept me up, up, up. :)
However, there are some topics I dip down in. I used to dip down to worry, and sometimes fear in relation to money. Which is funny, because I’ve never in my life had less than I needed, but somehow, it used to get me. So, this is one that I practice allowing thoughts in often, just to keep myself primed.
I spent years and years in fear, guilt and unworthiness regarding body and self and relationship issues. This is where my fibromyalgia came from. I didn’t have to sit around and think “oh, I’m scared I might get fibromyalgia”, and in fact I never did, but I did have an underlying sense of not-good-enough, not-worthy-enough, I-must-guard-against, and so I eventually stored up enough of this in my body that fibromyalgia manifested.
So, these are the issues that take the most work for me. I had habits of thought that could very swiftly take me to a place of not feeling good, and if I was not feeling good my fibro was getting worse.
I believe, regarding physical conditions, you are either getting better or you are getting worse, and this can change from moment to moment. If you can think allowing thoughts 51% of the time you will get better, but probably slowly. If you can think allowing thoughts 80% of the time, you will be getting better fast!
Many of my thoughts were not even thoughts anymore, but more like states of being. I never have been able to identify an actual thought of “I am not good enough for that” but I can identify the feeling of shrinking, contracting, avoiding, hiding, and the negative emotions that go with it. These feelings are equal to thoughts to me – it just means that I’ve spent so much time thinking the thought that I don’t need words around it anymore.
So, to take an example from my life on how to find allowing thoughts regarding fibromyalgia that will allow you to attract wellness:
A month ago my family and I went on vacation. On the flight back (california to Hawaii) the last two hours were very bumpy. I have had a pretty extreme fear of flying (death) since my son was born. I did not practice my allowing thoughts on the plane unfortunately, I just sat there and tried to ignore my fear. I read my book and held it in a vice-grip.
When we got home I was sore. When I awoke the next morning, I was really sore. It felt like a major setback to me. Like I had forgotten everything I had learned, like I had failed. Crappy feeling.
So, I had a choice, I could have continued thinking thoughts like “I failed, I’m stupid, I should have known better, I should have done different, etc” and I probably would have had a real setback and not recovered for a long time.
Instead I deliberately sat myself down and said
- Ok, I know what happened and it wasn’t pleasant
- I would have liked to have been more prepared to ‘allow’ on the flight, but now I know
- There’s always next time
- Next time I will do better
- I will feel better soon
- I will be back to my old self soon
- This is very minor
- I can’t wait to feel good again!
- I sure had a good time on the trip!
- I wouldn’t have traded it for anything, even this pain!
- I can’t wait to do it again!
- Next time I know it will go better!
- Yay! I appreciate my body and it’s healing abilities and I am so glad it can recover from this quickly!
So, I moved myself up from dissappointment to appreciation in a few minutes. Then I tried hard to keep thinking that thought of appreciation. I did recover very quickly and now feel better than new.
This is an example from my current life, although if I had given you an example from 3 years ago, I probably would have been trying to move from fear to worry or something close. It is impossible to move from fear to appreciation in one sitting, in my opinion. But just one move up the scale has value.
In fact, many friends of mine advise only moving up one place on the scale a day. So if you are in fear, you would try to move up to guilt, by thinking thoughts that make you feel guilty, and then you would stay there all day, essentially stabilizing there. The next day you would start out in guilt and try to move up to jealousy and stabilize there.
It Gets Easier and More Natural
Eventually, as you become better and more practiced, you will spend much more time in the higher states on all issues and moving up will be a joy (moving from hopefullness to optimism is fun, while moving from revenge to anger is not – but it’s still better than just sitting in revenge – lol)
And remember, you don’t only do this on thoughts about your illness. You do this on all thoughts. Abraham says that if you could just stop thinking about whatever is bothering you and focus on something that makes you feel good, all pieces of your life will become more how you want them.
So, while you are moving up the scale on money, your body will be healing too. How great is that! And conversely, while you are moving up the scale on your body, you will be attracting more money, if that is something you want.
