Every physical illness is the result of psychological causes whether directly or indirectly.
When there is mental unrest, it affects the body as well. A physical symptom is a signal which your body is communicating to you to tell you that something is wrong and has to be dealt with. It is bringing to your attention a problem in your emotions, thinking or environment that is non-beneficial or harmful to you, so you can face it and resolve it.
Illness themselves are often the result of ignoring the signals that our bodies send us. As a result, the signals tend to get louder and louder, and the condition worsens. Until you have no choice but to make a mental and emotional change in order to resolve the problem. But some people foolishly continue in the wrong mental or physical act they are doing, that they never learn from their mistake even unto death.
Ignoring what your body is telling you or overlooking the fact that what it is communicating to you is deeper than something biological, is a serious mistake that leads to things going on a downward spiral from there.
The point here is not to get you to focus on what’s wrong with you, but to have an awareness of what your body’s messages are. Your body’s messages are never wrong, but they are always right as they are always seeking to point you in the right direction. Believe that you are healthy and that you have nothing wrong with you. Any symptom is just a signal from your body seeking to inform you of something you need to be aware of.
When you have negative thoughts and emotions such as worry, fear, anxiety and great stress, your mind communicates those signals to your body. And your body in turn communicates those signals back to your mind. This is called feedback.
Mind and body are connected to the same cybernetic loop. The mind and body are a mirror to one another. Either one can lead and the other will follow.
But of the two, the mind is truly superior. What is in the mind has the power to override the body.
Having the mindset that all your thoughts and emotions control your physical well-being rather than the other way around is to represent things in a way that empowers you. Always represent things in a way that empowers you. When your mind is the dominant one, you are in control. When your mind is the weaker one, you are being controlled.
The way to real healing is to be healed mentally and emotionally rather than just working on curing the physical ailment.
- The system of psychoneuroimmunology (the way the mind affects the nervous system which in turn affects the immune system).
Because long before you had a physical disorder, you already had a disorder in your mind and emotions causing you disharmony and jeopardizing your flow of life energy. When people focus on treating the biological symptoms alone and neglect resolving the psychological factors behind it, that’s the reason why physical illness that were cured before keep recurring again and again.
Holistic health is about dealing with your well-being on every level, physically, psychologically and spiritually. Always be aware of what your body is telling you and respond appropriately.
- Or even better, take charge of what’s going on mentally and emotionally and that will take care of everything else. Why heal the body when you can heal the emotion first? It is better to walk in divine health than to need divine healing.
