"Get into the Know"
We are taught in our western culture to think in terms of pieces of ideas or concepts rather than integrated complete ideas and concepts. We look at our bodies, minds, emotions and spirit as if each part is fully separate from the other rather than totally intertwined. Western society rewards specialization, the examination of a piece of the whole. We believe we can take things apart into small pieces and deal with these small pieces in isolation of the complete idea or concept.
This fragmented approach has lead us to look at health in a compartmentalized manner rather than as the management of a totality. We believe that our bodies, organs and systems are totally separate from our thoughts, emotions, energy fields and our spiritual selves. We need to look at how our thoughts can affect our behavior and ultimately our health. We need to understand how our emotions work and how repressed emotions can create serious illness in our bodies. We need to appreciate how our values and beliefs can directly affect our everyday health.
We do not integrate spirituality into our everyday lives. We do not realize that perhaps our spiritual lives or a lack of spirituality may be causing some of our health problems. Many of us do not known how to develop a personal spirituality so that we are connected to the greater universe. We fail to understand the difference between organized religion and spirituality. We do not appreciate the need to integrate spirituality with the practices of the religion to which we belong.
Our body, emotion, mind, energy body and soul together form the whole person. It is only by dealing with each part of the whole within the whole, that we can have vital and energetic health.
All organs, systems, thoughts, emotions, have their own specific energy or vibration. Each organ vibrates at an energy specific to it alone. Each piece of food or drink that we consume has its own vibration. Each emotion has its own vibration. Therefore what we feel, what we think, what we eat and drink, even what we daydream about, has a direct effect on our health.
