Is There are Connection Between Spiritual Health and Physical Healing?
When one is spiritually or emotionally unhealthy, it will definitely affect his physical well being and become sick. 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. If you ask ministers and some alternative health experts what they think about physical health, they will tell you that diseases that people encounter is a result of poor spiritual health and well being. The belief that your physical well being is linked to your spiritual or emotion health is already gaining following.
If there is a strong connection between physical health and spiritual health, then we only need to strengthen our spiritual lives so that our bodies can be healed. If you are feeling great spiritually and emotionally, you will also feel good physically. When the body falls ill, our attitude plays a huge role in how the disease progresses and how long it may last. 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. All people have a predominant emotion that rules their life. Holding on to these toxic and negative emotions is exposing your body to become sick eventually. If you want to promote physical healing, you need to rid your mind of emotions that do not promote love, joy, peave, or faith. These are the fruits of the spirit. 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.
There are many ways to maintain your spiritual health and these are through meditation, reading the Scriptures, prayer, and others. All these activities can help promote emotional health and well being. These practices have to be done regularly or daily, so that you can take away the negative emotions in your life. Those who are able to read the Bible regularly will know of the love and faithfulness of God which is strong enough to conquer the negative emotions in our lives.
However, even if we have the most positive attitude, healing may not always be instantaneous. Handling your sickness in a strong manner is the effect of having a strong spiritual well being so you don’t really mind the sufferings of your physical infirmity.
