02 Apr How Anger is making (and keeping) you sick
Hello my lovely person,
Today we’re going to dive somewhat deeper than usually. Ever since I healed my sciatica solely with the power of my mind, I was pulled into the mind-body connection phenomena. I read one book after another, and my journey is getting deeper and deeper.
I want to show you why it is so essential that you let go of your old repressed anger, resentment, guilt, shame and any other negative emotions. I like to call them the old negative baggage and you need to leave them where they belong: in the past.
So how on earth is this connected to dis-ease and why would you do this to yourself? “I’m not insane and I want to feel good – what are you talking about?!” This may be just some of the thoughts you are having right now. I was the same and it wasn’t until I tried absolutely everything else I could think of, that I was ready to try the unspeakable: check if there really is something to this dreadful, terrifying and unknown thing called ‘your mind can influence your body’. I was terrified! And filled with questions like “What does that mean than?” “Am I doing this to myself on purpose? I don’t want to be sick! This is ridiculous!”
There’s nothing wrong with you and of course you want to be healthy. This is usually one of our first responses when we realize that we can heal ourselves using our mind and that we need to let go of the old emotions. You see, negative and repressed anger, guilt, shame, fear, anxiety are creating an acidic terrain in your body.
What is an acidic terrain?
Well there’s basically acid (0 – 7), neutral (7) or alkaline terrain (7 – 14) and our body thrives in an alkaline terrain. The normal range for our body is between 6 and 7.5, so slightly alkaline.
How on earth can emotions create an acidic terrain?
So tell me something: How do you feel when you’re angry? I feel my blood pressure going higher, heart rate goes up, I start sweating and my muscles are tense. Now imagine a couple of years of this, or rather a decade. Of course these body signs won’t be as strong every single day of your life, but they will always be underneath the surface. Always waiting. Waiting for another situation and person to get mad at. Because these emotions, and the underlying reasons for these emotions haven’t been released, ever.
And why is acidic bad for the body?
It has been shown that our body is working best when in an alkaline range. You can support yourself with lots of healthy foods, but there is lots of foods that will fall on the acidic range. These include coffee, alcohol, fast food, processed foods etc. This is just to give you a picture. But the thing is, no matter how well you eat, if you don’t let go of these old negative emotions that you’ve been dragging with yourself for the past couple of years, decades or even half a century, diseases will catch up. They don’t have an expiration date like our food. They stay there, under the surface. Until released. And that’s also when you get liberated and give your body the freedom to breathe and really relax.
And this is what happened to me when I let go of the old emotions: my body got a chance to breathe and relax, and start healing. It was wonderful and very soothing! The best remedy you can cook up! 🙂
You see, walking around with that negative baggage, or bag of rocks, is like trying to climb a mountain with huge bag of rocks, while at the same time trying to get healthier, lighter and free. This doesn’t sound very promising, does it?
And here we are. What are you going to do for yourself? Letting go liberates you and makes you lighter. And it is the best gift you’ve ever given to yourself.
