Luckily the medical profession has started to recognize the connection between our minds and our bodies. Metaphysicians have long affirmed that physical health comes through mental health. We must discover where our thoughts and emotions have caused us pain and illness - and we must heal our thoughts first in order to heal our body. It’s not the other way around!
This booklet explores the mind/body connection and how to live a healthier lifestyle, so we can learn to make peace with our bodies. We will take a fresh look at our dis-eases and unrests through a rigorous metaphysical diagnosis.
First of all, let us recognize what stress does to us if we are not managing it properly. We can all relate to the dis-easiness, called stress, and therefore it will be helpful to you when making the connection between habitual thinking and the unhealthy effects on the body.
Here is a great little story I found online and I frequently use it as an example in my workshops, which I want to share with you:
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?” Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.” Remember to put the glass down!
I’m urging you to ask yourself: Who is holding this glass? Who decides when to put it down, or not?
