As I move along on my journey I am developing a deeper appreciation for the non-separation of things. We are all connected, yes. All things living and nonliving. Past. Present. Future. We all share a common energy field. Not a breath, thought, or feeling is experienced by one that does not affect every other. Our science is beginning to admit this now. And the implications are transformational.
This truth is paralleled within us as well: Our physical, emotional, and spiritual centers are also one. Have you noticed? You cannot experience a change in mood, for example, without a corresponding change in your physical and spiritual aspects. A physical illness is as much an emotional and spiritual crisis as it is a manifestation in the body. And a shift in spirituality is often accompanied by changes in emotional and physical health. If you observe carefully you will see that this is true.
The implications of this are also transformational. For true healing to take place you must address all aspects of your experience rather than going after the single most obvious physical, emotional, or spiritual manifestation. This is not as difficult as it might sound. The simplest way is to use affirmations.
A fail-safe way to choose the most appropriate affirmation for your situation is to consult the suggestions of someone like Louise Hay, who for many decades has observed and cataloged the emotional correlates of nearly any physical problem you can experience. There are a wealth of related resources available with a quick web search.
The most comprehensive source I have found to date though is, All Is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations, and Intuition by Louise Hay and Mona Lisa Schulz. This book takes the reader through a process of self discovery, a connecting of the dots if you will, to train you to notice and understand the interplay between your physical body, your emotions, and your spiritual life.
Practice thinking in integrative terms and see the differences you will notice!
