Illness - What Is it And How Is It Caused ?
Illness has never been a pleasant subject to talk about. Maybe, this is because illness is connected to our pain and suffering. What you will read here might be quite challenging for you. But first, let me explain something about knowledge and understanding. We as a human beings have four levels of understanding:
- 1. Unconscious not knowing – This is a stage where you are not aware that you don’t know.
- 2. Conscious not knowing – In this stage you are aware that you don’t know.
- 3. Unconscious knowing – In this stage you are not aware that you know.
- 4. Conscious knowing – And finally you know that you know.
Most of us are taking our health for granted, and usually we are not even aware that there’s a problem until we become sick. It’s then that we wonder: What happened, and why did we become ill?
To answer that question, we first need to understand, what it takes to be healthy and become aware of our mental health as well. Unfortunately, today’s mainstream medicine is focusing only on our physical health regardless of the undeniable fact that mental health is equally important to our well-being.
In today’s modern society, it is normal to push away our unpleasant feelings and emotions so we don’t have to deal with them. Thinking “out of sight, out of mind” will help us to go on with our busy life. But unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth.
Those suppressed and unprocessed emotions are not only weakening your immune system, which is influencing your current health, but they will keep bottling up in your subconsciousness. I challenge you to think back to a time when you got sick last time. If you retrace a few days prior to the onset of your illness, you will find out, that you went through some turbulent emotional experience, didn't you?.
What is health and how can we define it?
I think we may all agree on the following definition:
The body is healthy, when all its organs and all systems are working to their optimum capacity.
My understanding of the body is that it's a complex self-healing mechanism. This mechanism needs to have proper fuel (building material/ nutrition) to be able to repair itself and keep illness free. Just think what happens when you cut yourself. Definitely, you start to bleed from the cut; and this has two purposes:
The first one is to flush out any impurity from the wound.
The second one is to deliver the white cells to the place of damage, so they can plug the leak and allow mending of the skin.
A similar process of self-repair happens with every illness. And I can tell you straight away, that no doctor or healer heals anybody. All they do is facilitate the healing process, but the actual healing is only done by your body.
If you see the doctor with a broken arm, all the doctor does is straightens the bone and sets it in plaster. The rest is left to your body’s healing ability, which needs to allocate appropriate building material like calcium and other necessary nutrients to mend the bone.
A similar situation is when you come to me with the desire to quit smoking. I might have the best 'quit smoking' hypnotherapy clinic in Melbourne; but all I can do is, to help you with the process in reaching your goal. I can easily reduce your craving and correct your bad habits, or motivate your state of mind for a healthy life, but you're the one who needs to do the work. You are the one who decides whether to smoke a cigarette, or not. I can’t do it for you!
But let’s go back to the topic. By now, we should have a fair understanding of our body’s ability to heal. But how does it actually happen? It just can’t happen randomly by itself. There must be some intelligence guiding this process. Otherwise, your body’s cells would not know what is damaged and what needs to be repaired.
And here it is!
It is called the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.
Your subconscious mind is driving every organ and every function of your body. The actual illness is a communication of our subconsciousness that something in our life is out of balance. Our subconscious mind is communicating via our body all the time.
Our body is always letting us know, if something is out of balance, and isn't working properly. If we pay enough attention to the body, we may prevent the problem from manifesting itself into a full - blown illness. It is fair to say that the symptoms every illness is the way our body is telling us to pay attention to it.
I can tell you with certainty that no cancer just suddenly appeared so advanced, to the extent that a patient only has a few weeks to live. So we need to learn to pay more attention to our body and what it's telling us.
As you can see, there's definitely a mind-body connection, and every illness has to be approached from this aspect. For example, if you visited a doctor for the treatment of insomnia, the doctor will give you a script for sleeping pills. But will he have solved your problem? Maybe yes, because now you can sleep.
Will the pills cure you? Definitely not, because regardless of the side-effects of sleeping pills, once you stop taking them, the insomnia will be back. Why? Because the pills only managed to treat the symptoms of the insomnia, but not what actually caused it.
The same effect scenario occurs when you take a Panadol for your headache. The Panadol will just remove the headache which is a symptom of something else. Unless you discover the root of the problem, the cause of the headache will remain untreated. The reality is that you can heal the illness by treating the cause, but not by just removing the symptoms. The underlying cause of the headache might simply be a hangover which is dehydration of the brain and could be relieved by just drinking plenty of water.
Hypnotherapy is a natural way of healing. It does not require you to purchase pills that may produce unpleasant side - effects. If you are looking to be healed naturally, you have certainly come to the right place and I will be more than happy to help you.
