health requires the careful, consistent application of certain
fundamental principles among them the need for balance, and
an awareness of the creative power of our attitudes and emotions
in shaping the condition of our physical bodies. But
healhty living also means having positive supportive loving
relationships with other people. And the key to such relationships
is to first have a strong relationship with the Spiritual
forces within ourselves."
~The Essential Edgar Cayce-M.Thurston, MD
is an active state of being that addresses certain underlying
principles about healing and integration of the body, mind and
Spirit. The "key" Universal principle of good health
is Balance-a mutual
dependency and interrelatedness of the physical, mental and Spiritual-"a
goodly body, an open mind and a loving
Spirit." True balance requires a sensitivity
to interrelationships. This
is best discerned by engaging in a spiritual lifestyle. Since
each of us has a purpose in life and the means to acheive that
purpose is through our bodies, we can begin to appreciate our
vehicle as a gift, which can serve the Divine Plan.
When the body
is nutrimented with whole foods, sufficient exercise, sleep and
sunshine it feels energetic and in balance. Such a state of wellbeing
provides a foundation for ones unique energy potential to be realized
through a mission, a task, a destiny, karma, or ones Soul purpose.
When the personality vehicle is unaware of its Soul mission, the
virtues of our higher Self cannot be made into concrete reality.
Any unrealized potential begins to show its opposite or negative
side as a personality defect. This negative energy state produces
disruption, congestion, friction, distortion, disharmony and loss
of energy in the body-mind whenever
the personality is not connected to the great Kosmic energy field
by its soul. Lack of coordination is experienced as unhappiness,
depression and in negative mood states before it developes as
disease in the physical body. Anything that darkens consciousness
is negative and will sooner or later lead to illness!
these principles makes suggestions for treatment much more likely
to be effective. Since
or illness is an interplay of the body, mind and spirit-a coordination
of body systems or lack thereof creates our physical condition.
physical conditions play an imporant role beyond the digestive
organs. If the body is exercised and the mind is not, the whole
being has difficulty responding properly via assimilation of nutrients
in the diet. In this case an approach would be to use the mental
to enhance the physical perhaps through visualization while eating.
Food also stimulates states of consciousness as in the relationship
with flour and sugar.
Addressing the three
principle systems and their coordination are the key elements
of wellness. These are the circulatory system, the nervous system
and the internal organs. The interconnectedness of the systems
demonstrates how an imbalance in one area creates a reflex or
reaction to something that is out of balance elsewhere in the
body. The four phases of self-care of the body-mind-Spirit
levels are: Circulation, Assimilation, Relaxation and Elimination/Detoxification.
The acronym spells CARE. Therefore, the principle focus of self-care
is detoxification, purification (treating attitudes, motivations
& emotions) and rejuvenation (the potential for longevity)
to bring coordination between the physical, mental/emotional (emotions
are a sublevel of the mental) and spiritual dimensions of being.
beliefs and attitudes are the starting points for healthy
we respond or fail to respond to what is occurring will
determine the resolution of any problem. By establishing
the right mental orientation in life we set the stage for
healthy expression at every level of our experience. This
will enable us to choose well for ourselves -to create with
intention, exercising our FREE WILL.
our body wisdom is the key to wellness. Listening to the
way it feels and by honoring its messages is the pathway
to feeling whole and joyful. When we experience a less-than-comfortable
state, as a subtle shifting of moods, an inability to stay
physically grounded or centered in our emotional body, feel
pain and misery, there is an inability to let go of inner
resistances. The attachments to things, experiences of the
past, unrequited feelings, and so on produce an internal
craving or deep hunger that finds expression through unhealthy
patterns causing dis-ease. The angles of dise-ase are a
lack of awareness, extremism, agression and invasion, misuse
of energy, rebellion and willfullness.
Lindhar's Tree of Disease is
a reminder that in addition to the central focus of infections
and toxins as indicated on the branches that emotional and
lifetsyle issues often trigger the root of the dis-ease.
living is earned choice by choice evoked in every corrective step!
