Each question represents one of the twelve dimensions of The Wellness Inventory Wheel, which is the foundation of The Illness-Wellness Continuum, that John Travis, M.D., founded in 1972.
THE TWELVE DIMENSIONS:
Self-Love and Self-Responsibility,
Playing and Working,
C H O I C E S THAT HONOR YOU:
C ONGRUENCY: alignment of values and actions
H APPINESS: in the journey, not the destination
O H, WELL!: what you tell yourself when your mind wanders during meditation
I NITIATE: the life you visualize
C OMPASSION: for yourself and others
E NERGY: decrease withdrawals and increase deposits
S UCCESS: one small step again and again and again
YOUR COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF:
A PPRAISAL to acknowledge you are stuck and need a new direction.
A TTITUDE of learning mode versus judging mode.
A WARENESS OF YOUR INNATE ABILITY to heal using meditation and other self-soothing strategies in order to alter your gene expression and the gene expression of your future generations.
If you have a medical issue, I know firsthand that the most important factors at the time of diagnosis are mindset, habits, expectations, and methods to implement science-based, whole-person strategies.

Inside chaos is the source of outside chaos.
You are as creative, resourceful, and whole as you decide to be.
Change the thoughts that change the words that change the patterns that change your life.
When adaptive constructive coping mechanisms become maladaptive destructive coping mechanisms, problems ensue.
Things happen FOR you and not to you.
