Mind Body Connection
Humans are naturally emotional, this is simply because we are capable of experiencing a wide range of emotions from sadness to joy, in fact, the more we steer away from emotion seems to be a deviation of our natural self in my opinion. In this life experience we learn some very difficult lessons through emotion, but on the other side of the coin, we also attain profound wisdom.
While we can always work to move beyond our definitions of each experience and move into a state of mind/awareness/consciousness where we simply accept each experience for what it is and use it as a learning grounds for us, we may not be there yet and so it’s important to understand how certain emotions can affect our health.
The connection between your mind and body is very powerful and although it cannot be visually seen, the effects your mind can have on your physical body are profound.We can have an overall positive mental attitude and deal directly with our internal challenges and in turn create a healthy lifestyle or we can be in negative, have self destructive thoughts and not deal with our internal issues, possibly even cloak those issues with affirmations and positivity without finding the route and in turn we can create an unhealthy lifestyle. Why is this?
Our emotions and experiences are essentially energy and they can be stored in the cellular memory of our bodies. Have you ever experienced something in your life that left an emotional mark or pain in a certain area of your body? Almost as if you can still feel something that may have happened to you?
“If someone wishes for good health, one must first ask oneself if he is ready to do away with the reasons for his illness.Only then is it possible to help him.” ~ Hippocrates
