Everything in this universe God created is composed of energy. Every thought, emotion and word is energy in action and affects your physical body at a chemical and bioenergetic level. Your body is affected by something physical like falling or being involved in an accident. It is affected just as much by angry words, the shock of bad news or conversely a happy surprise phone call or expression of love or gratitude.
Those negative energetic hits we all experience can many times result in illness. Your immune system, and ultimately your overall health and well-being, is profoundly influenced by your emotions. Very basically, positive emotions, like gratitude, care, love and joy, can help strengthen your immune system, while negative emotions like anger, shame, guilt and fear, can deplete it.
A study done in the 1990’s measured the release of IgA, a substance your body produces when your immune system is kicked into high gear. They found that when the study participants spent five minutes remembering something that evoked feelings of care and compassion, those levels not only increased, but remained higher for six hours. Conversely, when asked to think about a situation that made them angry, their levels increased initially, but over the next 6 hours they dropped well below where they were before that experiment, proving that negative emotions can suppress your immune system for up to six hours!
In fact, it is not uncommon for devastating life events to trigger illness. For example, a car accident could precipitate panic attacks or asthma; extreme shock or stress has been known to result in development of diabetes; the sudden loss of your job could result in asthma; skin problems like eczema or acne could erupt after the death of a loved one. Even watching a scary movie not only affects you emotionally, but physically as well. Same is true if you see graphic pictures of an accident. You may feel nauseated. Being in an angry environment can bring on a tension headache or upset stomach.
Could this be why sometimes even when an illness is treated only with the conventional drugs most doctors prescribe, the problem may not be resolved? It’s been well documented that 90% or more of all illness has an emotional root.
Three Dimensional Vitality refers to health in all three dimensions, spirit, soul and body simply because all three are so closely interconnected and what affects one, affects all! Since energy connects spirit, soul and body, we would be wise to always stop and consider whether there is something that might have triggered a symptom or illness. Symptoms are simply your body’s way of communicating.
All illness has an emotional/energetic component or is the result of energetic influences, whether energy that is stuck and can no longer flow freely, or is trapped in a negative feedback loop that you keep repeating over and over. It becomes easy to see why a surgical or chemical approach alone may not be effective. We are created to be emotional, feeling beings. Our God is a compassionate, feeling God and He intelligently created these bodies we live in here on this earth. They speak volumes if we only listen.
