As Within, So Without
Carl Jung once said that until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. As human beings we are constantly evolving and changing the way we see things. Our health is no different.
Current neuroscientific theory tells us that our brain is organized to reflect everything we believe and know, consciously, and of course, unconsciously. Now we know that all the knowledge and experiences we have been exposed to throughout our lives, and what we have inherited, are stored in our brain’s synaptic connections.
Our beliefs, in the form
of knowledge and experiences, create our reality.
That means our beliefs, in the form of knowledge and experiences, create our reality. These concepts are labelled in terms of modern medicine. However they are as old as humanity itself. They have been expressed and passed on since ancient civilizations.
Let´s make a connection here: everything you learned about health and disease during infancy and early childhood is stored in your subconscious mind. You are creating and manifesting your health and disease, in large part, due to those beliefs.
Why is this especially true for the period from birth to age 7? Because we experience those earliest years of life in a theta brainwave state. This is essentially like a hypnotic state of absorbing all that we see and hear like a sponge. With the conscious mind not fully developed as a filter, all these implanted beliefs will determine our reality.
The concept of health being more than just about eating or workout habits is becoming more commonly accepted. A more complete and holistic approach involves recognizing our beliefs and actions, especially those that are limiting. These beliefs determine our choices about food, exercise and how we manage our emotions. They influence our decisions to either cover up and avoid dealing with unresolved issues or dig deep within ourselves to expose and release what no longer serves us.
A familiar and widely embraced universal law is this: nothing outside of us exists that does not exist FIRST within ourselves. Notably, the following quote is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, whose teachings are a basis for ancient Greek-Egyptian religious and philosophical traditions:
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…”
Many claim to have gained a sense of immense personal power and responsibility (as opposed to blame) by acknowledging these concepts and universal laws. So why is it that so many others keep denying that emotions are a significant contributor to disease and health imbalances? Have they not considered, or perhaps do not agree, that covering up uncomfortable or unresolved memories can prolong the path to self healing?
Are you up to confronting these mental obstacles towards regaining your health and making better lifestyle choices? Then start by going within to heal, forgive and release. Let go of the root causes of disease.
I encourage you to visit and share on my Facebook page @LauHHC. Tell us what you were told and internalized as a child about health and disease.
