The Effects of Negative Emotions on Our Health

“If someone wishes for good health, one must first ask oneself if he is ready to do away with the reasons for his illness. Only then is it possible to help him.” ~ Hippocrates

A positive mental attitude and powerful immune system will be the result of a healthy spiritual, physical and emotional state. It is only when we ignore our bodies that illness is able to take control of our own bodies natural defenses.

Think of the time when your heart was racing with anticipation or fright, or that feeling in your stomach – its a result of the thoughts and emotions transferring to the physical body.

Your thoughts and feelings are linked to specific parts of the body and different illnesses. When you fall sick, the body is communicating that your way of thinking (unconscious) is out of sync with what is beneficial to our being. Your body is asking you to live in harmony, at peace with your self and your surroundings.

I came across this emotional chart which shows the mental thought patterns that form our daily experiences. It is also part of the book, “Heal Your Body” by Louise Hay – where she has listed all the common illnesses and diseases with the possible metaphysical cause.

If you maintain a negative attitude, that invariably attracts negative vibrations and feelings – which disrupts your body’s natural energy flow.

According to Davis Suzuki in ‘The Sacred Life’, condensed molecules from breath exhaled from verbal expressions of anger, hatred, and jealousy, contain toxins. Accumulated over 1 hr, these toxins are enough to kill 80 guinea pigs! Imagine the harm negative behaviour does to your body?

I was quite astounded when I read in the chart some of the pain areas for my Mom and the related thought patterns – it was very appropriate. So if you become aware of your health problem, you can use the power of your mind and heart to heal the body. There are several ways to achieve that like Yoga, Meditation, Earthing, creative visualisation or relaxation to name a few. The power is in your mind and never forget your thoughts have tremendous power!

Here’s an excerpt from the book, “Heal Your Body” by Louise L. Hay. It shows the physical symptoms are related to a prevailing mental or emotional state.

Imagine the power of your thoughts, when you are feeling some kind of pain, that can be aggravated or alleviated by your mind. If you think “I am in too much pain,” then you are going to be in pain, whereas if you think the opposite, it begins to subside. (Try it out)
