The human body is simply the vessel for emotional and spiritual beings that we are. And you can’t possibly heal your physical body alone from symptoms of pain, illness or disease, without also healing your mind and spirit. Balance; it is always about balance. Our well-being or dis-ease is a direct effect of the flow of energy of all these parts equally. This is the reason treating your symptoms of discomfort or pain doesn’t work. You need to heal the part of you that created the symptom of discomfort in the first location.
The autonomic nervous system is only one of the systems in our body which shows us this. This is the system in our bodies which is responsible for management of the bodily functions not knowingly directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes. This system includes the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system.
The parasympathetic nervous system, also called the rest and digest system, is what arouses energy as it slows the heart rate and increases intestinal and gland activity when required. The sympathetic nervous system’s primary function is to stimulate the body’s fight-or-flight reaction. Fight-or-flight is a physiological response to a perceived damaging even, attack or a threat to survival. This entire autonomic system’s design helps prepare the body to deal with stress and threats, in addition to returning the body to a resting state later.
Bear in mind that times of the previous generations were much simpler. Times of today are very different and the challenges of two working parents or in many cases, single parent households are many. Oftentimes, the majority of us run around scattered most of the time trying to find all the necessary things accomplished in a day with no time for rest.
Due to this consistent pressures of life during those times, we’re generally living the majority of our days within the sympathetic nervous system. Understand that our bodies were not meant to be in a constant state of fight-or-flight reaction system. When our bodies do not frequently return to a period of rest later, it wreaks havoc on our organs and systems with each of the hormones being released on a constant basis. This is our bodies way of telling us to stop, listen and slow down, of which, most of us rarely do.
This is only one of the physical systems of checks and balances our bodies were designed with. Now let’s think about our emotions. The negative emotions of continuing stress, depression, anxiety, constant excitement and even possible emotional pains of our past are traumatic emotional energy.
The negative emotional energy also gets channeled into the body, showing also, as the aches and pains in our daily lives. This is our bodies way of attempting to dispel this energy and typically, if you stop and listen to your body, these symptoms ease and your body recovers naturally. It is when you continue to ignore your body, it creates longer lasting effects such as illness and disease.
So stop treating your symptoms of pain and listen to your body. Take some time to rest. We all need a reset button for ourselves every day to stay healthy. I’m not saying that you can not be Superman/woman and get it all done in a day, since you probably can and probably do. The majority of us have grown accustomed to this daily way of life, but at what price? This is such a difficult lesson for most but think of your loved ones around you. Don’t you want to be there for them in a healthy and balanced state for many years to come? Because I’m pretty positive that they want that for the two of you.
And oftentimes, physical issues manifested from a less than positive psychological place. So treat your entire being with balance and rest to help you to ascertain the root cause, which you can then cope with and heal fully. Throwing medication at a symptom will simply mask it, while the core problem is still very much alive. Core issues grow and fester, and at a certain point, they make you stop and listen.
I’m living proof of this, having had thyroid cancer at the age of 37. My symptoms started when I was 27 but I did not stop to listen to my body. I send you these recovery tips from a place of love in the hopes that you may not need to go through a life changing disease like I did. Again, it’s so important to understand that you can’t heal the whole of you, without recovery all the parts.
Take time to do things which are relaxing to you every day. Even if 15 minutes a day is all of the time you can spare, are not you worth it? The right answer here is yes. Do something just for you, which you love, which makes you joyful and whole. Balance and centre with some quiet and serene time for you. You will be amazed what a little you time can do for you. You may slowly but surly beginning to notice those aches and pains gradually fading away, or maybe you start sleeping better at night. Ah, the magical!
