The human body is just the vessel for emotional and spiritual beings that we are. And you cannot possibly cure your physical body from symptoms of pain, illness or disease, without also healing your mind and spirit. Balance; it’s always about balance. Our well-being or dis-ease is a direct result of the flow of energy of each of these parts equally. This is the reason treating your symptoms of discomfort or pain does not work. You need to heal the part of you that created the symptom of distress in the first location.
Our physical bodies were designed to be self-correcting with numerous healing systems of checks and balances. The autonomic nervous system is just one of the systems in our body that shows us this. This is the system in our bodies that is responsible for management of the physiological functions not consciously directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes. This system includes the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system.
The parasympathetic nervous system, also called the rest and digest system, is exactly what arouses energy as it slows the heart rate and increases intestinal and gland activity if necessary. The sympathetic nervous system’s primary purpose is to stimulate the body’s fight-or-flight response. Fight-or-flight is a physiological reaction to a perceived damaging even, attack or a threat to survival. This whole autonomic system’s design helps prepare the body to deal with stress and threats, in addition to returning the body to a resting state later.
Bear in mind that times of the previous generations were much easier. Times of today are extremely different and the challenges of two working parents or in many cases, single parent households are many. Oftentimes, the majority of us run around scattered most of the time trying to find all the necessary things accomplished in a day with no time for rest.
As a result of this consistent pressures of life during these times, we’re generally living most of our times within the sympathetic nervous system. Understand that our bodies weren’t meant to be in a constant state of fight-or-flight response system. When our bodies don’t regularly return to a period of rest afterwards, it wreaks havoc on our organs and systems with all of the hormones being released on a continuous basis. Hence, creating aches and pains, illness or even disease. This is our bodies way of telling us to stop, listen and slow down, of which, many of us rarely do.
This is only one of the physical systems of checks and balances our bodies were created with. Now let us consider our emotions. When you live in a constant state of fight-or-flight, your emotions tend to get scattered and less than positive. The negative emotions of ongoing stress, depression, anxiety, constant excitement and even possible emotional pains of our past are traumatic emotional energy.
The negative emotional energy also gets channeled into the physical body, showing too, as the aches and pains in our daily lives. This is our bodies way of attempting to dispel this energy and typically, if you stop and listen to your body, these symptoms ease and your body recovers naturally. It’s when you continue to ignore your body, it generates longer lasting effects like illness and disease.
Take the time to rest. Most of us need a reset button every day to remain healthy. I am not saying that you can not be Superman/woman and get it all done each day, since you probably can and probably do. The majority of us have grown accustomed to this daily lifestyle, but at what cost? Is it worth your health? This is such a tricky lesson for many but think of your loved ones around you. Do not you want to be there for them in a healthy and balanced condition for years to come? Because I’m pretty positive that they need that for both of you.
And physical issues generated by a less than favorable emotional place. So treat your entire being with equilibrium and rest to enable you to determine the root cause, which you can then cope with and heal fully. Throwing medication at a symptom will simply mask it, while the core problem is still very much alive. Core issues grow and fester, and at a certain point, they allow you to stop and listen.
I’m living proof of this, having had thyroid cancer at the age of 37. My symptoms started when I was 27 but I did not stop to listen to my body. I send you these healing tips from a place of love in the hopes that you might not have to go through a life altering disease like I did. Again, it’s essential to understand that you cannot heal the whole of you, without healing all the parts.
Take time to do things that are relaxing to you every day. Even if 15 minutes a day is all the time you can spare, aren’t you worth it? The correct answer here is yes. Do something just for you, which you love, which makes you joyful and whole. Balance and centre with some quiet and calm time for you. You will be amazed what a little you time can do for you. You may slowly but surly beginning to notice those aches and pains gradually fading away, or maybe you start sleeping better at night. Ah, the magic!
