85. Can the Way You Feel Create Illness in Your Body?
Can a person who is down trodden, negative and miserable become sick even when there's no illness in their bodies? Yes, it can happen! Negative attitude towards life can create physical illness within you. The saying; what you say, you are - or you are what you say you are truly rings true in many ways.
There are many sides to your wellness. Emotional traumas absolutely can manifest as physical illnesses. Prescribing drugs to provide a bandage to this multi-trillion dollar profitable business renders the health care more apt to increase prescriptions and profit instead of focusing on the root causes of it. There's no cost to see a Doctor - and yet is costs money and takes effort to see a Counsellor and heal the roots of hurt. Invaluable!
Many have experienced the connection between emotional trauma leading to physical illness. Pride stops countless from being supported in their healing journey. Brian was one of them. He was a quiet man, who just completed his 11th Ironman competition, and aroused my curiosity when the extensive scars on his chest revealed a sign of multiple surgeries he had experienced. Brian told me his wife died of cancer. He was a business man, did not exercise and ended up with a heart attack resulting in multiple surgeries as a result. He nearly died when the love of his life passes away. He went to the very bottom before he chose to seek help.
Brian opened up about his depression and loneliness. He found an emotional release of his negative and destructive state by leaning on the Lord and by exercising. He ran to release his emotions. He screamed to the Lord to release his loneliness. Psalm 23:4 states "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me." Brian received support. What about you??? There is a definite and profound body-mind connection within each of us. Please seek for help before damaging your physical body with your emotions. That is invaluable and provides longevity. Health allow you to live your life to the fullest!
