Breathe Ease: Dis-Ease Breeds Disease
The idea that disease in the physical body is a result and manifestation of dis-ease in the emotional body has been documented for thousands of years.
To begin to understand this at the most primitive level, consider how you feel inside your own body with the rise of fear, anger, sadness, joy and uncertainty. The rise of fear may trigger the need to go to the bathroom, anger can create the feeling of toxicity surging through the body, sadness may invoke shortness of breath, joy elates the heart and lack of joy creates a squeezing sensation, where the heart may feel it is not receiving any blood. Uncertainty or pensiveness may surface as a stomachache.
It would make sense to learn that according to Traditional Chinese Medicine the organs that correspond with each emotion are going to be directly affected by the rise of the emotion. The kidney is related to fear, the liver to anger, the lungs to sadness, the heart to joy and the stomach to pensiveness. However, it works circularly, an unbalanced organ may also trigger the corresponding emotion.
Once you have the awareness of how your emotions affect your organs, you have the secret to amazing health. Masking the symptoms will not remove the problem. The change must be made at the root or seed level. Calming the breath, calms the mind. Releasing the Dis-ease will release disease.
Modern medicine deals exclusively with symptoms, yet physicians concede that almost all sicknesses originate psychosomatically. The translation is that thought shapes reality. Just as joy is known to bring a smile, a smile brings joy. Happy healthy healing thoughts manifest as a Happy Healthy and healed body.
The single most powerful thing you can do to release dis-ease and disease from the body is to breathe life and ease into the body. Breathe your way into balance by engaging in cellularly cleansing and balancing mind body exercises such as Qi Gong, Tai Chi or Yoga.
Being Happy Healthy and Fit means understanding that you control the outcome of your health and happiness. If you aren't controlling your emotions, chances are they are controlling you. Even if just for today, choose to Breathe Ease!
