What To Do When You Hear “You can’t do anything”

Injured women (and men) so often tell me (too many times, really!) that they hear there’s nothing they can really do about their healing in a given moment. That they just need to give it time (or something similar).

I could not disagree more with this thing they’re so often told.

Yes, it might be true to a degree… but! And this is a big BUT, followed by an even bigger ‘…NOT in a way that is presented so often.’

There are 3 situations when this famous sentence is said – and you can find yourself in 1 or all 3 of them (I was actually in 2). And it doesn’t matter how many times you hear this because it absolutely is not true.

In this video, I’m gonna explain what I mean by that and…

What are the things that you actually CAN do no matter the situation.

After watching the video, I’d like to hear from you. What will you start doing today as a result of watching this?

(P.S.: Yes, the image is the “Seriously?!” look I get when I hear this sentence.)

Please continue…

“There’s nothing you can do about it, so just accept this.”

“This is how far you’ll go.”

“I’ll be candid with you… you won’t get back to normal”

Heard any of the above from your doctor or health practitioner? How did you feel about it?

To be honest, I don’t completely agree with any of these statements.

Allow me to explain.

When you’re injured, you might hear these grim words in any of these three situations:




The first scenario happens when, say, you come out of surgery and you got a cast on. The doctor comes to you and tells you that you can’t do anything about it at the moment.

The second scenario is when you’re informed of your diagnosis. Let me use my own example. Avascular necrosis was one of several potential complications for my broken and dislocated talus bone.  It’s when bone tissue dies due to an interrupted low blood supply. My doctor told me that there was nothing I could do about it except go for replacement surgery in a few years.

The third scenario is when you’ve given your potential outcome. In my situation, for instance, I was told that developing osteoarthritis was a huge possibility and there was nothing I could do about it.

Often, the first conversation I have with many of my clients involves the first scenario. Physically, it’s true that you can’t do much in the beginning. When the injury is fairly recent or if you’re in a cast, you definitely won’t be able to walk around or move as much. But that’s just physically!

However, the physical part of healing is just one aspect of your recovery. While you wait for your body to heal, there are so many things you can do in that period of time. And the best thing? While doing other, not so ‘obvious’ things, you’re actually helping your body to heal better and potentially even faster. So, I absolutely don’t agree that there is “nothing” you can do while waiting for your bones to mend or soft tissue to heal.

I’m often asked if there ever is a guarantee that my Mindful Injury Recovery Method works. Let me tell you… there are no guarantees in life. If you had surgery, you had to sign papers signifying that you understood that the surgery may or may not succeed.

But what I am absolutely sure of are these…   

When you take your healing power back,

When you bet on yourself,

When you do the mindful work,

When you deal with your emotions, thoughts, and perception,

When you let go of what isn’t serving you,

When you work on the things that are happening on the inside,

the progress and growth you feel on the inside will manifest physically.

And this is scientifically proven as well.

So does my Mindful Injury Recovery Method work? Yes.

Complete recovery IS possible. While I can’t guarantee that you will get back to 100%, there are chances of it happening! And when you do the internal work necessary to heal, something will DEFINITELY change.

What do you believe in?

Believing what you hear in the doctor’s office is one thing. But believing what you can do is another.

Out of those two, you have to bet on yourself.

It’s a scary prospect because most of the time because WE DON’T WANT TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY. We want someone else to tell us what’s going to happen. But doctors (and other medical professionals) are trained in many things that are useful to your recovery. They are definitely NOT trained to help you align yourself with the healing potential you carry inside you. You have to decide to do so.

Our conscious and subconscious decisions either move us towards or away from what we want.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a roadmap to complete healing of your injury?

Now you can have it! Just click the button below.

In this in-depth masterclass, you’ll discover all the important things that are not covered in your doctor’s office so that you can heal quicker and better with ease & bounce forward from this physical trauma.

Are your decisions moving you towards a direction you want, or away from it?

Think about it. Your emotional, mental, and spiritual states influence your progress. What are your thoughts? Your perceptions? How are you dealing with your fears, worries, anxieties, and anger?

When you work on your inner world, you change your body’s biochemistry.

When your biochemistry changes, so does your body. 

When you become aware of something that you possess, you can turn things around. And it’s also possible to do that with ease.

Science is slowly catching up with things that healers have been doing for centuries. Some of the healing techniques and practices I teach my have been around for thousands of years, and they work.

There are so many things you can do. But you must first decide that you want to do that. If you resign yourself to accepting that there’s nothing you can do, you’re probably right.

My advice? Don’t give your power away. The magic happens when you take this healing power back. 

And we all possess it. 

Sending you much love xx

  1. Dear Maya,
    Very important topic for healing not just for injuries of broken bones etc but for other health problems people may have. I used the meditation course while recovering from breast cancer and still go back to them sometimes.
    Thanks so much for the support on Facebook; even though I don’t use it anymore I know it’s there if I ever need it again.

      I so agree, Julia. We can apply so many things from the mindful healing approach to other situations and it will do the ‘magic’. I’m so glad our paths crossed. ❤
