Your Body is a Mirror of your Life.
You are an Energy Being.
Everything starts in your thoughts, your consciousness …
Energy follows thought, thought creates action, therefore everything that happens in your life, and within your body, starts within your consciousness. This is who you are, how you experience your ‘being’. Your experience of ‘being’ is energy which is not just in your brain, it is in every cell of your body. How you communicate with your body, through your consciousness affects every organ and every tissue. This you already know.
Throughout childhood, adolescence and adulthood, as you decide what to believe, what to accept or reject throughout life some decisions leave you with residual stress.
We absolutely know that stress affects our health. Every magazine on the bookshelf will carry a topic on stress and its affects from time to time. The interesting issue is which stress affects which part of our body. (e.g. stress associated with type “A” behaviour patterns, people who are highly competitive and work to compulsory deadlines, has been linked scientifically to heart disease.) The way you are able to cope with stress, your mental attitudes and how your consciousness is communicated throughout the body will, needless to say, affect you in the moment, but also have a lasting affect on your future health.
How we each deal with emotional stress depends on the understanding that:
- Energy follows thought
- Energy can be felt
- Energy can be changed before it affects the physical body.
- We create our reality
To many of us these statements are overly simplistic. We have known that stress is carried in the body for a long time. Science proves this. We have learned that certain areas of the body carry memory in the cells of different areas of life; such as heartache and grief in the chest and lungs, anger in the solar plexus, (liver and gall bladder) and bitterness and resentment in the joints.
We may already have an understanding of the force flows through our body, whether we think of the Chinese meridians used in Acupuncture or the Indian chakra system. In Chinese medicine the flow of energy is called ‘chi’ and in Indian ‘prana’. These ancient systems were brought to us from the eastern philosophies at the turn of the twentieth century but have become better known during the eighties and nineties with the popularity of yoga, Reiki, Thai chi, meditation etc.
This is one way of understanding how the energy circulates through our body and governs the important physical, emotional and mental well being. The vital energy centres, called Chakras (Chakra ~ pronounced with a ch sound as in church ~ is Sanskrit for ‘wheel’) are each seen as a cone shaped vortex of spinning energy from the front and back of the body. Each spins at a different speed, holds a different vibrational frequency, and relates not only to the area of the body in which it is situated, but the various sacred passages through life.
We can re-align our thoughts and energies to heal our bodies by deepening our connection with the Divine, getting to ‘know’ our angelic helpers, strengthening our spiritual practice and the regular use of affirmations such as “I am safe, happy and loved”, “I am loving and attract loving people into my life”,”Every cell in my body works in perfect harmony” and my personal favourite “I am blessed”.
