Our body is wonderfully designed with natural self-healing abilities. It knows how to keep us healthy on all fronts: healing wounds, fighting pathogens, fixing frayed DNA, boosting longevity, eliminating toxins, canceling out cancer cells and keeping us in order from head to toe.
Because it is always under the influence of our emotions and thoughts, our body mirrors any dysfunction in our subtler bodies— our emotional, mental and spiritual layers. Things inevitably go off course from time to time and when they do, the door opens for disease in all forms to manifest.
This perpetual feedback loop between our body and mind is a great opportunity for expanding self-awareness. Louise Hay’s work on health challenges and associated mental/emotional patterns was brilliant. In fact, as she found, most health challenges arise from too much sadness, which can deepen into depression; fear, which can turn into panic and anxiety; and anger, which can turn to frustration and meltdown—also, too little joy and love.
As you tackle our symptoms biochemically with drugs and supplements, consider exploring what they may represent on a subtler level. Practicing daily affirmations is arguably the simplest, most effective way to release limiting mental and emotional patterns. Here are seven powerful affirmations to help assist the healing journey:
“I am a divine being of light, and I am peaceful, protected and secure.”
“I am radiant, beautiful and strong, and enjoy a healthy and passionate life.”
“I am positively empowered and successful in all my ventures.”
“Love is the answer to everything in life, and I give and receive love effortlessly and unconditionally.”
“My thoughts are positive, and I always express myself truthfully and clearly.”
“I am tuned into the divine universal wisdom and always understand the true meaning of life situations.”
“I am complete and one with the divine energy.”
