Health means wholeness in every aspect of our being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The terms ‘health’, ‘to heal’ and ‘holy’ all come from ancient words meaning ‘whole’.
Health is a spiritual condition. It has its origins in the invisible energy field from which atoms are formed, and is influenced by our thinking. Good health is no accident. It is a by-product of good habits, physical and mental. It is no coincidence that happy, positive, emotionally balanced people tend to be healthier and live longer.
Mind and body are one. Doctors used to believe that they were separate, but enlightened practitioners admit this was wrong and are changing their entire approach to medicine. The body is energy in vibration, and energy is disrupted by wrong thinking. Research shows conclusively that the mind can make us ill, and the mind can make us well. When we give our bodies what they need, including plenty of loving attention, we increase the flow of life-giving energy.
Strive for health and wholeness. If it were somehow CI’s intention that we be sick, any attempt at healing would be against its will – which is inconceivable! Encourage the Life Force work through you and a healthier mind and body are within your grasp.
‘The same stream of life that runs through the world runs through my veins day and night and dances in rhythmic measure. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth into numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of flowers.’
What is your body made of?
The body is mainly carbon, water and waste, but this is only its outward appearance. Through a microscope, we see that it is made up of cells. Cells are made up of molecules, which are made up of atoms. The atoms in our bodies are no different to any other atoms, being made up of subatomic particles spinning in formation, moving so fast that they appear solid. Thus we are made of the same stuff as everything else in the universe. We are, in a very literal sense, stardust.
The body is a marvellous machine, but it is the life force which makes it function. It appears to be a solid collection of muscles, bones and tissue, but is formed of energy. We’re a paradox – we live in physical bodies formed out of something non-physical, animated and held together by an invisible ‘life force’.
We are, in fact, 99.999% empty space!
Your body is your autobiography
The cells of the body are constantly renewed, and the renewal process is directed by the mind. A healthy mind produces healthy new cells and an unhealthy mind, unhealthy new cells. Moreover, our attitudes become etched on our features. You’ll have noticed that some elderly people look vibrant and happy despite the lines on their faces, while others lack energy and look miserable. It is not their years or their experiences that make them this way, but their thinking.
A lively, responsive mind draws spiritual energy into the body, and vice-versa. Our attitude is reflected in our physical make-up, including our appearance. This is why it has been said that our faces and bodies are our autobiographies. ‘Perhaps,’ wrote spiritual teacher and endocrinologist Dr Deepak Chopra, ‘our bodies are just the place our memories call home.’
Good health comes from within
The body is self-regulating. Every cell possesses energy and intelligence to enable it to perform its function. Cells know what the body needs and what is good for it.
Good habits create a healthy body. The body needs high-quality nutritional material (food, fluids, oxygen etc.) for constructing cells, and effective elimination of waste materials. Give it the care it needs. Eat, drink, exercise, rest and cleanse yourself regularly – these are essential for good health. So is natural daylight and exposure to healthy electro-magnetic fields.
Regulating nutrient absorption and removing waste depend on the flow of vital energy in the system. If this flow of energy is interrupted, the body becomes ill. Illness is in effect the body is protesting about mistreatment and striving to free itself from its unhappy condition.
Good habits are not like medicine, though, to be taken only when you are ill!
Health and the Law of Vibration
The mind exercises control over the body through the Law of Vibration. Every change in vibration brings about chemical and electrical changes at cellular level.
You can affect your body by raising your vibrations. Higher vibrations override lower vibrations, and the highest vibration is love. Think of your body in loving terms. Cherish it. Bless every part and be grateful for what it does for you. Since like attracts like, the quality of these thoughts will be mirrored in your health.
