Do you know that you have the capability to heal yourself? Of course, seeing a doctor is a given. But there are some things that you can do as well to help aid in the healing process and ensure optimum health and wellbeing.
If you are feeling any symptoms of illness, that is your body’s way of telling you that something may be wrong with your body. If this happens, do not brush it aside. Generally, any serious illness does not develop overnight. It will take some time. And long before it happens, the body will keep on sending signals and it will not stop unless you do something about it.
That is why it is important to boost your immune system. You can do this by adapting some healthy habits towards physical wellness. These habits include:
- Exercising regularly
- Drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day
- Eating healthy foods
- Getting Enough Sleep
- Avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol
- Deep breathing
Almost everyone knows the basics to good health but the question is, are you doing it? Do you have a healthy lifestyle? If you are not yet convinced, there are a lot of people out there who can attest how a healthy lifestyle led them to achieve optimum health.
Mental & Emotional
Have you heard of the mind-body connection? The mind-body connection is the link between a person’s thoughts and feelings and physical health. Because of this connection, sometimes, we do get sick even if we are following all the protocols of a healthy lifestyle. This is because, whether we like it or not; what we are feeling and thinking do affect the state of our physical body. When you feel sick and your medical results indicate that there is nothing wrong with you physically, the doctor says, “it is stress“. That is your cue that you should take a closer look at your mental and emotional state.
If this is the case, engage in activities or practices that promote relaxation and enhance positivity such as:
- Creative Arts
- Prayer and Meditation
- Exercises such as Qigong, Tai chi and Yoga
Sometimes, we just have to learn to let go of of the past and other things that are weighing us down. If it is difficult to do it alone, maybe it is time to consult with a clinical psychologist to help us with the healing process.
When you have exhausted all physical, mental and emotional ways of healing and you feel like you are not yet totally healed; then maybe it is time to take a look at the spiritual level. Ask yourself, are you spiritually well?
In spiritual healing, there is a belief that there is a spiritual energy that can heal all ailments. With this comes a realization that you are more than your physical body. You are more than your thoughts and feelings. And that within you resides a spiritual being.
Spiritual energy is often referred to as the Chi or the Qi. In Asian culture, the Chi or the Qi is the vital life force or the path of flow that resides in all human beings. This is the concept behind gentle exercises such as Tai Chi and Qigong. It is also the concept behind martial arts practices such as Aikido.
Spiritual healing meditation is kind of a holistic energy healing technique that taps into the inner vital force of human beings. Its basic principle is that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. it addresses not just the physical body but also the emotional and spiritual aspects of the person. It is a belief that if the energy flow gets fixed, the person will get healed. Examples of energy healing techniques include:
- Pranic Healing
- Reiki Healing
- Crystal Healing
- Quantum Healing
There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life.– Rumi
