In the movie, The Secret, there is a section in the film that discusses health and disease, shown below, which explains the power of our thoughts as it relates to our bodies. It discusses how people have been cured from their physical illnesses, once they started living and thinking differently.
This is not to say that we should ignore our pains and avoid medical testing or about blaming ourselves for our pain or sickness. If something hurts, it is important to get it checked out by a doctor.
However, it is also important to check out our thinking and see how it is contributing to the problem as well.
If we have a physical pain; we could ask it what it is trying to tell us. This exercise can provide some insightful answers.
For example, if you have back pain, you may discover that you have been, ‘carrying the world on your back’ by trying to control everything or living in fear and worry.
Additionally, maybe you need to slow down or forgive someone for an old hurt. Stuffing your feelings or carrying lifelong resentments around is bound to show up in your body if you don’t find a healthy release for them.
Once we get the message of what our pain may be trying to tell us, then we can go about making changes in the way we are living and bringing a more relaxed mind to our life.
Write down what your pain may be trying to tell you.
