The missing part in health strategies.

MY 2-PART ‘HEALTH SOLVING’ STRATEGY

I know you know – especially if you actually read my blogs – that the universe is made up of the seen and the unseen. The physical and non-physical. Energy and matter.

Therefore, it stands to reason that if we want to ‘solve’ something, we might need to work on both the seen, and the unseen.

It has been my experience over the last 52 years, and particularly in the last 23-years that I have been immersed in the personal development and optimum health field, that if you just focus on solving things in the ‘outer’ world (the seen or physical), you will get a 50% effective (or less) outcome.

So essentially my 2-part health solving strategy, is about doing the OUTER work as well as doing the INNER work.

Here is what I do when I am feeling crook, off, ill, in pain or unwell.

Part 1: The Outer Environment (the easier and more obvious part)

The first part, like in triage, is to remove things that can be directly attributed to the pain or discomfort you are feeling. This can be really obvious, like removing a piece of glass you have stuck in your foot, but in most cases (in my experience), the probable physical causes of your pain or discomfort, are a lot more subtle.

Therefore if I am in pain or discomfort, I look very closely at what is seen or knowable in my external environment, and adjust if possible.

This includes things like (but it not limited to):

  • Is there something I have consumed, food or drink, that may be causing disharmony?
  • Is there something affecting the quality, or quantity, of my sleep?
  • Am I being over-exposed to harmful chemicals in my food, on my body, in my household, etc.?
  • Am I being over-exposed to radiation or EMF from technology devices (including staring at a screen for multiple hours a day)?
  • Am I taking a medication which has a disruptive side-effect?
  • Am I drinking 3 (or 10) too many beers on the weekend?

You get the idea. The greater our knowledge of health, the better idea we have about the external environmental influences on our health; so we can make changes in our outer environment to ensure our ‘terrain’ (where we live, play and work) is conducive to healthy living.

Part 1 is very important, but I actually think Part 2 is more important, less known, less understood, and less often applied.

Part 2: The Inner Environment (where the body’s intelligence resides)

First, let me come clean.

This is actually where I really wanted to take you today. Where I believe the most impactful, and miraculous healing and wellness takes place (or doesn’t if ignored).

The INNER work is also the place that most people avoid, as we have probably experienced during our lives, that the emotional stuff can be a whole lot more painful than the physical stuff, plus harder to ‘figure out’.

But here is the thing. A lot of the emotional stuff, actually creates, causes or exacerbates, the physical pain.

I personally don’t think you can fully heal a ‘physical issue’ – long term – if you don’t also do the inner work.

That is, doing work on the inner environment.

The two – physical and emotional – are connected.

The principle aim of this post today is to plant the suggestion that if you are only work on healing yourself, by focusing on the outer environment, and only the ‘physical’ aspects of it, you are going to have a harder time of it, or you may not get the result that are actually possible.

We need to do the INNER WORK if we want to heal root causes, as opposed to keep putting plaster on the symptoms.

The first step to doing the inner work, if you are new(ish) to this, is to acknowledge that your thinking and feeling (non-physical things), affect the chemistry within your body, which affects what happens at a cellular, organ and systems level.

Neuroscientist Candace Pert PhD, coined the term ‘molecules of emotion’ and proved that our emotions create biological effects in the body.

Pert said: “Most psychologist treat the mind as disembodied, a phenomenon with little or no connection to the physical body. Conversely physicians treat the body with no regard to the mind or emotions. But the body and mind are not separate, and we cannot treat one without the other.

My Main Point

If you are experiencing a health issue, most definitely look to everything in your outer environment, which might be contributing to it, and make the necessary changes.

Then explore your inner environment (your thinking, feeling and emotions) to see what is not in harmony. Acknowledging the ‘feelings’ you have about certain things in your life, or certain past experiences in your life, have an emotional and therefore ‘physical biological’ influence on your health.

Unfortunately most people avoid, ignore or play down the impact of their inner world, in favour of primarily focusing on their outer world.

Don’t let that be you. Boldly face the fact that your inner ‘stuff’ might be causing a health situation that is not explainable by a physical and reductionist worldview.

(I encourage you to download and listen to my free-no-strings-attached Audiobook – The Successful Mind – on the inner landscape of the conscious and subconscious and then next week, I will talk more about my top ‘inner work’ protocols).

I will leave you with those thoughts to ponder and then we will get even more practical next week.

Have a super fabulous day and all the very best.
