There is an intimate and very dynamic relationship between your mind and your body. What is happening in your life, your feelings and your thoughts is reflected out through your physical body. Likewise, as we think, so we become. We can specifically pay attention to what our body is feeling and to what our mind is trying to express. Deb Shapiro, in her book, Your Body Speaks Your Mind, states “When something goes wrong it is usually a combination of both physical and psycho-emotional causes.”
By learning the language that the body and the mind speak to each other we can learn what is being repressed and what we may need to bring to the foreground and face sooner to avoid unnecessary illnesses and imbalances. An important clue to keep in mind when researching physical imbalances is the specific function of the part of the body that is presenting the symptom.
- What does this part of my body do?
- What role does it play in the scheme of my body as a whole?
- How does this purpose relate to what is happening in my life?
By keeping on top of the little things, by taking a “hint” when it is first displayed as a symptom of imbalance, we can keep ourselves (both body and mind) healthier and much happier.
