We’ve all heard of the “mind-body” connection. The main concept is that physical illness and disease are linked with our emotion of stress. Common examples are the relationship between heart disease and “type A” personalities, and how suppressed anger can result in hypertension and strokes.
Much of the research looks at the bodies immune system and the impairment of our bodies defenses, when we are stressed. But does this also apply to our belief systems and attitudes? The origin of stress relates to the way we respond to stimuli in specific patterns. So it makes sense that our interpretation of the world, which is guided by our belief systems conditioned patterns, that determines how we deal with stress in our lives.
There is well documented research from the mathematics of nonlinear dynamics and attractor research, confirmed by kinesiology and acupuncture, that gives us a basic foundation and understanding of the human disease process (Hawkins, D. “Power vs. Force”. hay house, Inc. 2002).
We have millions of thoughts in our mind everyday. A constellation of these thoughts shapes our reality and presents an attitude that persists over time. This attitude, according to David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., author of “Power vs. Force,” is associated with an attractor energy field of corresponding power or weakness. “The result is a particular perception of the world, and appropriate events are created to trigger the specific emotion,” according to Hawkins. All of our attitudes, beliefs and thoughts are connected with various pathways known as “meridians” of energy to all of our body’s organs. You may have heard of the heart meridian, or spleen meridian. So how sensitive are these thoughts we have to an immediate result? It depends on the repetition of the thought over time. Think about it…
All of us have many of the same thoughts over and over again. You can label them as being more pessimistic or optimistic; thoughts about our past or worry’s about the future. The repetition of these thoughts and beliefs become amplified until it eventually affects the entire system and a new energy pattern evolves. Eventually, an accumulation of these thought patterns can manifest as a disease or sickness, or optimal health, depending on your attitude and beliefs.
Think more globally about the state of the world and the shift that has happened. The internal communication of our nation has consisted of negativity, greed and corruptive behavior, selfishness and fear. Eventually, it was a matter of time until some event or events were created to trigger those emotions. This invisible universe of thought and attitude becomes visible as a consequence of these prevailing thought patterns. The results are an observable dis-ease process. The stimulus may be so minute but the persistence and repetition of the stimulus is what determines the end result.
We are now faced with new choices and new opportunities. We have seen spontaneous recoveries from every disease that has ben recorded throughout history. We see specials on TV shows like 20/20 about people being “cured” but don’t know how or why such a dramatic change has happened.
With the election of a new president and new administration, we have an opportunity to shift our old thought patterns to ones of hope and change in a direction that will take us further to a healthier future. First we must start with ourselves. Are there conditioned responses you have that are not serving you anymore? That is what we must focus on, before world change is to happen.
Our thoughts are powerful! We are at a crossroads, and have decisions to make that start with literally one thought at a time. Be conscious of the voice in your head. Be open to change and trust in yourself.
