Week§18: On Health
As I am meditating a lot on ‘truth’, on listening to the truth of my heart and the wisdom of my body and following my inner compass, the link between living your truth, being in truth and ‘being able to’ (= allowing yourself to) speak your truth and physical health became more and more clear, aware and undeniable.
A lot can be said about it, and it is not my intention to write books on it…. But this I definitely wanted to express: living a lie, lying to yourself about who you truly are and ‘are about’, ignoring your inner wisdom, deafening that inner voice of your heart in time literally makes you physically ill. Because very simply: your cells are directly responding to your inner state of mind and your emotions, they are ‘you’, and if you lie to yourself, to them — and as extension of that to your outer world and/or the other way round, you keep your cells ‘hostage’. You deny them their (your) existence, their (your) true vitality. And of course, they will not ‘flourish’ and be happy and entertain a healthy body. No, they will in time ‘abandon’ you the same way you deny, ignore and abandon them. They will start to ‘rebel’. This may sound far-fetched to some, but as I am more and more surrendering to that inner truth of mine and expressing it more and more firmly and clearly — and as a result of that, get physically healthier– I ‘bump’ on stuff in the most beautiful synchronic ways….. like this Ted-video I wanted to share here… take the time to listen all the way to the end….
(And oh, by the way: living in an environment that is filled with lies, also has an impact on your health, since we all are linked, we –our cells — SENSE that something is ‘off’ even if consciously we do not (want to) notice anything, and the result is un-well-being to say the least. Of course we mostly do not recognize the physical symptoms as actually being a reaction on the ‘un-truth-full’ surrounding, so we keep going on in denial, IF we are unable to listen to our intuition, to the truth in our heart that KNOWS, have no doubt about that…. So in that sense, we still are lying to ourselves by not listening and trusting that inner whispering. It’s a ‘great’ way of manipulating ourselves and each-other….. never getting to the root of things and letting it all ‘rot’ inside… does not sound ‘healthy’, does it? Well, it isn’t…. not mentally, not emotionally, and not physically, making ourselves and each other sick. How kind of us. :p 😀 … )
So … be authentic, be YOU, discover that true You, bring it to the light, radiate it, express it… Listen very closely to the truth of your heart, that inner whispering, follow that compass. Your heart is immensely powerful, and opening (it) up to the truth, your truth, HEALS. It heals you, and everyone else around you. Even if (finally) being honest breaks things open into a process where everyone may have to go through a catharsis first. But stay focussed: in the end, everyone wins.
Truth serves the highest good of all. But yes, it takes courage to begin with. Your choice.
So here you go:
