Thought Forms and Body Health
Louise Hay was one of the most interesting people to put forth the concept that every illness is a manifestation of unresolved emotional thoughts and experiences. In fact, she stated that, “for every effect in our lives, there is a thought pattern that precedes and maintains it. Our consistent thinking patterns create our experiences. Therefore, by changing our thinking patterns, we can change our experiences.” Many other healing philosophers have also examined this idea, and it seems to be the consensus that four emotions particularly are responsible for the most dis-ease in the body: Criticism, Anger, Guilt and Resentment. The mind carries unresolved emotions and ideas, that change the way the body functions and moves. This causes blockages of circulation, lymph, nutrition, oxygen and toxic buildup in certain areas. Each area corresponds to particular types of emotions because we correlate physical responses to certain ideas with each body area. For instance if someone is “galling”, we are obviously relating them to the function of the gall bladder. So if they are “galling” to us, our gall bladder will store those emotions if they are not expressed and resolved in a timely manner. The longer emotions remain in our bodies, the more changes our body will experience in trying to accommodate these difficult feelings. Also, each negative emotion that is stored in our bodies makes us more susceptible to infection, imbalance, disease and death. Most types of emotional-oriented bodywork focus on the storage of memory patterns from traumas and emotional crisis that have locked down areas of muscles and limited body movement and the ability to heal. In order for the body to fully discharge the pent-up energy from these blocked areas, we must both physically release the tissue of the area and also acknowledge and work through the attached emotional issues. Somato-emotional release is a name for a number of styles of bodywork that focus on this release process. At ISIS we offer Myofascial Release Unwinding which is one of the most powerful hands-on treatments to stimulate this healing process. Shamballa also helps to balance the energetic blockages and allow for gradual dissipation of physical problems as we proceed through the difficulty of emotional healing. Louise Hay also published in her book Heal Your Body, a listing of dis-ease conditions of the body and the probable emotional causes that begin the process of dysfunction.
