You Can Do This!
The journey into healing at the Optimum Health Institute (OHI) can be very simple, yet full of challenges that take guests out of their comfort zone. It is a time of discovering how the body works, how thoughts impact our overall wellbeing and what happens when we let the world slow down, let go of expectations, and seek silence. To support and encourage guests, OHI San Diego and OHI Austin create a safe space for the healing to happen.
During first week classes, guests are encouraged to follow OHI’s 5 Ps and have a positive mental attitude , clarify their purpose for doing the cleansing program, be patient with self and others and persist in their efforts toward reaching their healing goals. They can also pray to our Creator for strength, comfort, and healing.
New guests are assigned an OHI “buddy,” a staff member or missionary, to help them navigate the program and offer an understanding ear. The first week can be challenging. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
The process of cleansing and healing can be an adventure, exploring new ideas and new ways of seeing one’s life. It can be a celebration of personal power. I offer my presence to guests to listen, to share ideas and encouragement. I always suggest there is a power, a love that is greater than we can imagine. I encourage guests to be open to that connection to Mystery. This is perhaps the greatest encouragement available, an inner energy from Source with limitless resources.
I offer prayers that your life is full of meaning and blessings.
