Muscular Dystrophy is characterized by the wasting away and atrophy of muscles.
It is believed to be a genetic defect in muscle metabolism that can be inherited from one generation to the next. Typically symptoms show up early in life, and it is more common in males than females.
Having Muscular Dystrophy indicates the existence of an ancestral issue that has left us weak, debilitated and afraid (paralysis).
A guilt issue has become a family script and now there is a level of self-attack.
Somewhere in the past generations of our family, there is a belief that being strong, powerful or cruel, caused damage, and therefore we are afraid to have strength now.
Muscular Dystrophy is a compensation to cover over and make up for this issue.
We are being called upon to let our weakness be heaven’s strength.
This inspires us to let heaven be in charge so that we know our power and strength will be used with the highest integrity.
