Heal your Mind, Heal your Body
Health is one of the most important aspects of our life, when we have it, we often take it for granted and get busy enjoying all the other things in life. However, when we do not, it can hang over our lives like a dark cloud.
Let me tell you something startling and I believe it to be true with all my heart. In many cases disease of the body is a result of dis-ease in the mind, soul, spirit, subconscious, call it what you will. The good news is, that means we can do something about it.
disease of the body results from dis-ease in the mind
Eastern societies have long recognised this link and their medicinal techniques reflect a much more "holistic" approach to healing. It is a reality that our thoughts are closely linked to our physical bodies, dysfunction in one is often reflected in the other. Western medicine tends to treat symptoms, often successfully "making it go away", but fail to treat the cause, raising the possibility of recurrence in one form or another.
Mind-Body Link and Causes of Illness
There is a large body of scientific evidence now showing that the immune system, previously thought of as the prime internal defence system, actually works closely with both the nervous and endocrine systems to carry out its task. These findings clearly indicates that our mind and our emotions can influence illness.
physical patterns are created in sympathy
Our mind and our bodies are so closely linked and used to working automatically with each other that I believe that both positive and negative internalized beliefs in the mind are reflected in other parts of the body. Or to put it another way, physical patterns are created in sympathy with mental patterns. I call the negative effects of this the "dark shadow", negative patterns in the mind casting a shadow into the body and the positive side "healing light", positive thoughts basking the body in healing light, summoning all your natural defences to action.
You do not have to look far in our society to see how negative self-image or beliefs lead to various degrees of self harm. From the deliberate self harm often seen in troubled teenagers to self destructive lifestyle choices and actions. These actions are often subconscious and compulsive or addictive in nature.
The subconscious will go to any lengths to achieve a perceived beneficial goal... including becoming sick, breaking a leg, just about anything if the mind can see that it is the only way to achieve its goal. When examined, these perceived beneficial goals are often based on fear.
Of course there are many other reasons why we get sick and some of those are out of our control, but being strong and healthy mentally is our very best defence against sickness and our strongest ally when it comes to healing.
Have a look at our healing cards, these cards show possible metaphysical causes of many common conditions and illnesses.
