Healing

How disease gets

created


  • The biggest factor that causes blockage of the body's healing energy is emotional issues, particularly how these are stored in - and processed by - the body. Stress and negative emotions aren't in the head; they are stored as tensions in the body. If you think about the last time you were angry or scared or depressed, notice where you felt those emotions inside your body.

  • Stress and negative emotions are frequently stored in the smooth muscles. The smooth muscles are those muscles that function automatically, without our conscious control. If people store tension in the smooth muscles of the blood vessels going to the head, we might call this a migraine headache. If they store tension in the smooth muscles of the air passages of the lungs we might call that asthma. If they store tension in the smooth muscle of the intestinal tract, they might have symptoms like nausea or bloating, or diarrhea alternating with constipation, or vague abdominal pain, or we might call that Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • Emotions stored in the body also affect our immune systems and affect the flow of healing energy because wherever stress and negative emotions are stored in the body, they create a 'functional boundary condition in the nervous system' a blockage of the flow of the body's natural healing energy. This explains why chronic conditions persist. For instance, the stomach sheds all its old cells and produces a new lining every seven days. So how can ulcers continue to exist for long periods of time? Why shouldn't all ulcers be healed within a week? They might be, unless the body's healing energy is not getting to that part of the stomach.
  • EMOTIONS AND OUR INNATE HEALING ABILITY
  • Emotions and their effects on the body can be categorized in one of two main ways. First, there are distinct traumas that occur to people in their lives. Some of these might seem minor to an outsider looking in, but to the person who has experienced them they can have a big impact. Other times the traumas can be severe, including shocks like childhood abuse, rape, losing a parent or close friend, seeing or being involved in a serious accident, or war-time stress. These traumatic experiences are stored as memories inside our bodies at an unconscious level (some say at a cellular level). Later on the unconscious mind will try to re-present these memories to our conscious minds so we can deal with them and resolve them. But because these memories are so painful, a part of us resists feeling or re-experiencing the memory. In order to keep these memories from coming to conscious awareness, the body has to clamp down internally. This internal clamping causes tension in the smooth muscles or skeletal muscles and is responsible for many of the functional diseases that people present with, ranging from hypertension to migraine headaches to chronic back pain to IBS.
  • Many times, the initial traumas are so deeply buried inside the body that they cannot be easily accessed by the conscious mind. It may take years of therapy to get in touch with the deeper emotional pain and the early memories that caused it. Often we present with a physical disease and are not consciously aware of any emotions that could be contributing to it. Real physical ailments have underlying stress or negative emotions which have physicalized in the body. The person may be thinking 'But I'm not aware of any stress or negative emotions in my life right now.' However if they were consciously aware of the stress or emotions, they wouldn't have the disease. Your body is doing such a good job of keeping the emotions or traumatic memories deeply buried that they are not coming to conscious awareness. But, the presence of the disease you have requires the existence of these emotional issues. Emotional issues or traumatic memories are stored in that person's body, preventing the flow of healing energy.
  • Vast amounts of energy must be expended in order to keep painful emotions and memories held down in the body and outside of conscious awareness. This energy drain is one of the leading causes of chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple chemical sensitivity disorder. These diseases are very real and the people who have them are truly run down and depleted. The place to begin with these patients is by clearing any past emotional traumas so as to free up more energy for physical healing.
  • A second way to categorize emotions and their effect on the body is to assess how early events shaped the way that we handle or process emotions. One of the main functions of the unconscious mind is to keep us safe in our family while growing up. Often when we are young, events happen in our family that cause us to develop beliefs such as, 'It's not okay to show our anger or anxiety.' Showing these might upset our caretakers which would compromise our survival.
  • The problem with developing a global unconscious belief that says, 'It's not okay to feel your anger or anxiety' is that life will elicit these emotions whether we like it or not. As these emotions begin to arise in the body, the unconscious mind says, 'It's not okay to be feeling these things, it's not safe. Not feeling or showing these emotions is what kept you alive when you were growing up.' Then the unconscious mind prompts the body to clamp down on these emotions, to hold the emotions down in the body and prevent them from coming to conscious awareness. This internal clamping down can present as a back pain or hypertension or asthma attack or headache or IBS or urinary urgency. It may present as susceptibility to catching a cold or the flu. It may show up as difficulty recovering from surgery, injury or illness, because so much of the body's healing energy is tied up in the internal tension.
  • Here is a true example with the story of Peter who was presenting with chronic throat problems. Peter told me that as far back as he could remember, whenever a powerful emotion came up (either positive or negative) his throat would clamp down and get tight. He was also susceptible to getting sore throats and had three to four episodes of laryngitis a year during which he'd lose his voice. We decided to look at Peter's past history, so first I had Peter focus on the tight sensation in his throat. Then we regressed that feeling, traveling all the way back in time to the first event he could recall. Peter was about 6 months old. The scene that unfolded was that he was crying inconsolably in the middle of the night and his father came to pick him up and comfort him. But his crying persisted, and after about 30 minutes his sleep-deprived father got frustrated and put Peter back somewhat abruptly in his cot with a mild jar (perhaps letting him drop 2 inches down into the cot).
  • As a result of this seemingly minor event, Peter's unconscious mind developed several beliefs, one of which was, 'It is not okay to express strong emotions like anger or fear.' As I had Peter re-live several repetitions of the event, I had him get in touch with and express his anger towards his father. Next, I had him look at the event from a more adult perspective during which he could understand that his father hadn't meant him harm, and certainly didn't mean to instill a belief that engendered lifelong emotional stifling. He proceeded to have a real breakthrough at the unconscious body level in his beliefs about expressing his feelings. Latterly Peter had no more problems with either laryngitis or sore throats. He is able to feel and appreciate and express all of his emotions now in a healthy way.
  • Interestingly, it is not our negative emotions that cause the problem - but rather our resistance to feeling these emotions. All emotions are gentle and short-lived, unless we resist feeling them. A great healing technique when you have pain is to ask yourself 'I wonder what I am angry or anxious about?' Once you get in touch with your anger or anxiety, the goal is not to push these emotions away or to act them out, but rather to allow ourselves to feel them fully. I describe this technique as putting awareness on what you are feeling. For those of us who have spent our whole lives repressing or running away from our anger and anxiety, this can seem like a very strange approach. However, it is essential to go through this process if we want to learn how to free up the flow of our body's healing energy and regain our health and well-being.
