Are we capable of causing our own diseases?
Is it possible to cause our own Dis-ease?
Not too long ago it was strongly believed that diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease "just happened" and we had nothing whatsoever to do with it. A product of fate cursed upon us for whatever reason. I recently had someone tell me that their brother’s ongoing fight with cancer has nothing to do with the fact that he has grown tired of his life because of his wife's consistent nagging. I not only believe that he is wrong, but I believe that I can prove it.
We are all beings of light. This is not some new age Mambo Jumbo, but a hard core proven fact! Another proven fact is that all diseases have an electrical connection. Western medicine has just recently discovered what Chinese medicine has known for centuries, life force "is" energy. The meridian system was mapped out in 1994 using high-tech instruments that measured the tiniest amount of electricity. Along these meridians travels our life force energy. It was discovered that living cells produce light! The amount of light is determined by the health of the cell. The healthier the cell the brighter the light, all life is electrical! There are many who are under the illusion that disease begins with actual symptoms, when in fact disease begins with a blockage or disruption in energy flow. By the time you witness symptoms it's because energy flow has been being blocked for some time. When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur.
Conventional medicine may work wonders to alleviate physical symptoms and to treat illness, but allowing your energy to flow through your meridian correctly and allowing your cells to receive that precious energy is the first step to not getting sick in the first place. Your physical body reflects whatever is happening on that cellular level energy field. Imbalances, blockage or disruption in energy flow can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts, and feelings. Feelings which have a way of disrupting that energy include fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, and not expressing emotions in a healthy way.
There is a very powerful connection between your mind and body. We have just recently come to the conclusion that mind and body cannot be separated during healing. They are 'one" bidirectional system. If this is truly the case, and both are needed for healing than why wouldn't both be needed to enter into a state of disease? According to Hans Selye, MD, “The modern physician should know as much about emotions and thoughts as about disease symptoms and drugs". The main four factors in determining whether you become ill, and are more important than cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, or any other risk factors in determining whether you will live a long and healthy life are attitude, social networks, community, and spiritual beliefs.
Feelings of anger, resentment fear, worry, and doubt tend to have a serious negative and destructive effect on a very deep cellular level. Not only do these emotions do damage to your cells but they also affect the body’s pH levels by making it more acidic. If you’re living in a constant negative mental state it can create more metabolic acids than the food that you’re eating. In fact, you can create three times more metabolic acids from your thoughts, then from ingesting acidic foods. Think about that next time you experience acid reflux! Your thoughts and words become matter, as you continue to have a negative thought you start to begin using energy. That energy then produces a biological waste product called, lactic acid. If that acid from those negative thoughts is not properly eliminated by the body it moves into your fatty and connective tissue. Your body now has to deal with the first signs of dis-ease and you’re not even aware of it yet.
The next step in the process is that the buildup of that acid now begins to destroy the cells electrical charge. Without the charge, the cells start to suffocate. Cells cannot replicate without oxygen. This now impedes the process of cellular exchange, or letting nutrition in and letting wastes out. The buildup of acid now requires huge amounts of glucose to metabolize in a form that could only be described as fermentation. You now have a prime breeding ground for e-coli, typhoid fever, H.pylori, cancer and diabetes. If you are constantly looping a negative experience in your head and you’re constantly thinking about it, this process only continues to get worse. Emotions are "energy in motion." When you see someone that’s emotional, they are energetic, either in a positive or negative way. Your negative thoughts become biology or metabolic acid s that can make you sick and even end up killing you.
Now I want you to think back to my friend or even yourself if you’re stuck in a bad situation. The negative emotions of anger, resentment, and fear - are the most powerful and acidifying of all emotions. People are literally being consumed by negative acidic thoughts. More and more people are becoming ill of "thought attacks" and "stinkin thinkin" then any other disease combined. Did you know that 80% of heart attacks are emotionally triggered?
I feel that one of the best books you can pick up on this subject is written by a wonderful woman named Louise L . Hay entitled “You can heal your life". I love this book because at the end you can find an A-Z dis-ease dictionary which can help you pinpoint, and mentally deal with physical problems before they have a need to go any further. This book has been a great way for me to "check in" with myself to see what is really lying beneath the surface. Last summer I had a bought with some pretty severe colic which I had never experienced before. I decided to look up the meaning and found that it meant impatience and annoyance in my surroundings. After searching my heart and soul, I found this to truly be the case. I then attacked the problem head on and have not had to deal with either issue since.
In another wonderful book titled "The game of life and how to play it" Florence Scovel Shinn writes that continual criticism produces rheumatism, as critical inharmonious thoughts cause unnatural deposits in the blood, which settle into the joints. False growths are caused by jealousy, hatred, unforgiveness, fear, etc. Every disease is caused by a mind not at ease. “There is no use asking anyone 'What is the matter with you? We might just as well ask, 'who is the matter with you? Unforgivness is the most prolific cause of disease. It will harden arteries or liver, and affect the eye-sight. In its train are endless ills. There is no doubt left in my mind that, not only can we cause our own diseases but consciously or subconsciously we do!
