We all know that body, mind, and spirit are one. One influences the other, and one can heal the other. For me, change and healing still begin within. An illness or even accidents are often manifestations of something that comes from an imbalance in our inner world. But can it be the other way around? I mean, can an imbalance be in the body first without there being an imbalance in the mind? We have the body we need, with all its subjective advantages and disadvantages – subjective because everything our body provides is a tool to bring us back to our(-)selves. So it keeps us in line with our destiny either by finding other ways due to its limitations OR by overcoming limitations or diseases.
But what if in certain cases we need to adjust the body first in order to heal our inner world? The reason I’m thinking about this has to do with personal strange psychological developments in the last 2 to 3 years. Out of the blue, I was experiencing anxiety and panic attacks, and my stress tolerance was dropping more and more to a minimum. In addition, my concentration began to drop dramatically. I wondered what was wrong with me? What was wrong with my attitude? This wasn’t me anymore. I was sure it was in my head and that I could (and had to) get it under control using all the tools I knew. I did not manage to re-establish a stable balance in myself. It only got worse. The constant self-motivation, while I didn’t understand why I was no longer resilient, became additionally exhausting. One day I thought I needed to check if this could be a side effect of menopause. Now I have two independent opinions that confirm this theory. My treatment (herbal-based hormones) will start soon, and these disturbing feelings will most likely disappear completely.
So, what is it now? Was there an imbalance in my mind that manifested itself in my body? Or was it my body that independently developed an imbalance in its natural evolution to trigger something in my mind and spirit? It is not one or the other but all the three at the same time. There is communication and permanent interaction between them. They are truly one. Although the mind was not the trigger for the hormone problem, it was still cured by the body’s reaction. It was so convinced that it could handle this problem itself and refused any other way. It needed to be taught that to step back and look at the bigger picture. Impressive how one affects each other so naturally.
More comes to mind in this context. As I said above, physical limitations can lead us to find ways to overcome them or find alternative ways to live our destiny and become the person we want to be. For example, if you think you were born in the wrong body, adjusting your body can bring that sense of wholeness. A change in attitude is probably not enough at the highest level. It is the soul that prevails to take a step for a drastic change so that it can thrive unrestricted.
Nevertheless, it is the soul (our intuition or gut feeling) that tells us which screws we have to turn so that we are in harmony. The soul is already whole in itself and survives without body and mind. But it still needs the two to experience this life in its wholeness.
Listen to your soul
Be open to its call
And trust, it makes you whole
In Love and Light
