The Mind Body Connection & Preventing Disease

The Mind-Body Connection & Preventing Disease

When it comes to taking care of our bodies, we know that preventative measures are always more favorable than dealing with disease. When people hear they have a terminal illness or have to live with something for the rest of their lives, their mind immediately goes into shock and acts in a place of fear. Instead of figuring out what their body needs holistically, they put all of their energy into fighting the fire.

 

Many people will say that “Oh, it’s genetics, I was bound to get it.” or “This is just what happens to people my age.” But the truth is, that’s not technically true. 

What are the facts?

Studies from Dr. Bruce Lipton shows that our genes are influenced by our environment. That means, when you live in an environment that is conducive to stress, anger and negative emotions, your body remains in fight or flight, activating your sympathetic nervous system. When this occurs, your genes are susceptible to disease.

 

In Dr. Deepak Chopra’s Radical Well Being he talks about how our genes are responsive to our lifestyle, and that meditation can heal our bodies. And if we can use our minds to heal our bodies, that means we can also use our minds to harm our bodies through stress. He claims that 95% of diseases are caused by stress and the implications that has on the body. 

How to change

But how can we change our environment when our world isn’t always conducive to that? We have jobs, families, overexposure and connection to everything in the palm of our hands. As a society, we are more stressed than ever.

 

There are many things we can do to heal ourselves. The first and obvious ones are sleep, diet, and exercise. Our genes respond to meditation and our thoughts. Before bed and when you wake up in the morning are optimal times to meditate because your body is still in theta, a frequency that is connected to the unconscious mind. This allows you to connect to a higher source and raise your frequency, making you less reactive to the environment around you. And in turn, this decreases the inflammation in your body. Less inflammation = less disease.

 

Energy Sound Frequency Therapy is a great way to remove the lower vibrational frequencies in your body by raising your frequency. We store emotions in our body every single day. Whether we’re aware of it or not. It can take years to uncover stored emotions and release them. But Energy Sound Frequency Therapy can release them immediately. This brings you into a state of alignment, making it easier for you to meditate and keep your body in a parasympathetic response.

 

When it comes down to it, preventing disease is easier than we think. Instead of using negative energy to worry and program our bodies to believe that we are genetically inclined to get a certain disease, it’s beneficial to program our minds to believe that we hold all the power. Through meditation, energy sound frequency therapy, diet, exercise, lifestyle and our thoughts, we can influence our lives in significant positive ways that benefit more than just our health. If we start living in a positive and aligned state, we won’t have to wait until we’re living with a disease to realize we deserve so much more in our lives.

Dealing With Negative Thoughts

Everyone deals with negative thoughts. The average person has anywhere from 60,000 – 120,000 thoughts a day, 80% of them being negative. That is a lot of negativity to deal with in one day. No wonder we’re exhausted by the time we’re ready for bed. 

 

Thoughts can come out of nowhere, and sometimes we don’t have a choice of what pops into our brains, depending on the scenario. So how do we control our thoughts and emotions? The first step to releasing some of the negativity in your life is by deciding how you react to the negative thoughts. If you find yourself spiraling with a thought and you’re continuing the negativity, stop yourself in your tracks. Think of three positive phrases you can tell yourself for situations like these.

 

For example: Let’s say you are at work and you can’t figure something out. You find yourself thinking about how incapable you are, and questioning your intelligence. As soon as you notice these thoughts, think to yourself these positive phrases. “I am doing my best. I approve of myself. I allow myself to take a break.”

 

The positive phrases could be anything that means something to you. This will help break the patterns of negativity that we have created in our minds. We are physically rewiring our brains when we break patterns, causing new, more positive patterns.

 

This can be difficult in major scenarios, like a breakup or losing a job. In those instances, allow yourself to feel the emotions and honor the thoughts that come up. Once you allow yourself to grieve, start to break the pattern of unwanted thoughts by including positive phrases throughout the day when you start to notice yourself feeling heavy.

 

When we react to the thoughts that come into our minds, we tie an emotion to that thought, making it harder to forget or move on from. If you become angry at yourself for thinking something or frustrated that you keep thinking something, you are making it harder for yourself to move on. By simply acknowledging the thought, and detaching it from your identity, you are conquering that pattern. A thought is simply something that your ego created in your mind, it is not you, your personality, or your identity. It is nothing but a thought. And fortunately, we can change our thoughts whenever we choose to! You hold all of the power.

 

Here are some positive phrases to say to yourself when you are stuck in a negative thought:

 

  1. This is simply a thought, which I can change. I choose to think positive thoughts.
  2. I am at peace with myself.
  3. I can do anything I set my mind to. I am in control of my life.
  4. I approve of myself. I am worthy of my desires.
  5. Today is a good day. I am grateful for my life.
