Physical Healing and Spiritual Health
Sickness if often a results of an unhealthy spiritual or emotional condition. If we have many fears, negative thoughts, anger, resentment, or abnormal amounts of stress, it can lead to negative effects of both our spiritual and physical health. There are many ministers and alternative health experts who believe that the disease that people encounter today have their roots in spiritual health and well being. Many other people believe that physical diseases can be linked to spiritual or emotional factors.
So, if our spiritual health affects our physical health, then this means that we need to strengthen our spiritual well bring so that there will be healing in our bodies as well. If you are feeling great spiritually and emotionally, you will also feel good physically. Illnesses can progress and last depending on the attitude that you have while you are experiencing the illness. Even in the midst of illness, we can still keep our faith in God to heal and guide us through times of uncertainty and to ward off fear.
You alone can judge your spiritual health. You should examine your heart or mind for thoughts of fear, anger, anxiety, unforgiveness, negativity, or other emotions that can harm not only your soul but your body as well. Each person has a predominant emotion that is the one that rules his mind and his life. When we hold onto negative or toxic emotions, it is like giving your body points which will eventually make us physically sick Ridding yourself of emotions that do not promote love, joy, peace, and faith in God will help promote physical health. These positive emotions come from the Spirit of God. If these good emotions from the Spirit fill your heart and overflows with it, then God’s healing door is opened and the emotions that keep you dark spiritually and causes physical illness is removed.
If you maintain good spiritual healthy, you will be better equipped to face the problems around you. If you build your faith in God during uneventful times in your life will help you keep the faith during times when your circumstances and health are challenged.
The best methods for maintaining and staying spiritually healthy are meditation, prayer, deep breathing, reading the Bible and other good readings, and spending time in nature. Emotional health and well being are promoted by all these activities. Bad emotions like fear, anger, and bitterness can be overcome if you do these activities regularly. Reading the Bible helps us to focus on the love and faithfulness of God, which puts negative emotions out of your heart.
However, even if we have the most positive attitude, healing may not always be instantaneous. If you are strong spiritually, you will be able to bear your sicknesses well.
