In this human evolutionary process, we have gone way ahead technologically, but we are still living pretty “unaware” lives when it comes to our body, mind and spirit. Yes, we are awakening, but we are still very young from that perspective. We are still leading very disconnected lives, separate from our true selves, far from knowing who we really are and what we are capable of.

It is this separateness that keeps us running around like headless chickens when it comes to helping ourselves. When we get hit by a health challenge, most people are not aware of the fact that they have been responsible for creating that pain in their bodies. You may be thinking, “why would I do that? why would I make myself ill?” I know. I’ve been there. But in my own healing journey, I learnt that we create our own reality every little bit of it. Even the most unwanted pain in the body, whatever label you give it…autoimmune diseases or chronic conditions, and mental health problems, we are responsible for them unknowingly.

As undesirable an information this may sound, the fact is, the moment you realise that you have been responsible for creating your pain, you have taken your power back. You have taken responsibility for yourself because if you know that you have created it, then you can un-create it! At that moment, you have started your healing journey. How powerful is that!

Any discomfort in the human body and mind is a result of some underlying emotional cause. When we release that cause and work on ourselves from within, the physical manifestation releases itself automatically.

We go about with our daily lives, feeling all kinds of emotions, constantly reacting to situations and people around us. Each of those emotion has a vibration. That’s why when your partner walks in through the door, with a fit of full-blown anger…you go, “Wooaah”! You can feel it instantly. It is the vibration you are feeling. Similarly, when someone walks in with a smile and a calm demeanour, you immediately feel peaceful. Again, it is the vibration. We are all energy beings, and we vibrate all the time.

Unbeknown to many, these vibrations play a key role in our wellbeing or illness.

E.g., when you feel fear or anxiety, they reside in your solar plexus, which is in your abdominal area, just above the navel. Let’s say you go about feeling any of these emotions or both regularly. You may say…“but it’s triggered by somebody!” Or “but I’m right.”

It doesn’t matter, whether it’s someone who has played a part in triggering those emotions in you or whether you project it onto someone else; the vibration is yours, and it stays inside you. Now, what happens to those vibrations that remain within you for years?

They become physical symptoms over time and are called psychosomatic symptoms like IBS or diabetes, or liver-related problems, as all these organs reside in the solar plexus region. This is your body’s way of communicating to you, “Hey, look here, the cause is here.”

Any vibration generated by emotions such as fear, anger, grief, guilt, shame, envy, jealousy, no matter how valid your justification, are all low in frequency…and our body is designed to be in high frequency most of the time.

Subconsciously, we know that these lower frequencies don’t feel good. That’s why we feel low when we are going through grief. We also know that we are not meant to keep these emotions inside us. Hence, we throw our anger onto one another, or we may start using wrong defence mechanisms. You just want to take it out, don’t you? However, shouting at somebody is not the correct method of release.

That’s where therapy can help, where a professional can help you reclaim your thoughts, feelings, and your power. Unknowingly, we fill ourselves with emotional junk. It is time to release that.

Some might ask, “Does therapy really work?”

My answer is yes! It might take time to manifest concrete results, but it does. You have to be patient and trust in the process. Above all, you have to believe that you can take charge of your thought grid to learn and unlearn, to grow and heal.
