Do you feel weak, easily swayed by others, or run down for no apparent reason? Or do you feel too stiff, so reactive to every little annoyance so that you push people and love away?
Truthfully, many of us could say “yes” to all of the above. In either case, these are signs of an un-balanced psychic immune system.
Our physical and psychic immune systems are connected, so if you’re wanting better health, especially now as the seasons change and the holidays make us take stock of relationships, consider these suggestions:
1). When we’re happy or in love, we’re usually healthy! Have you noticed that on days like this you can stay up all night, or be around people you normally can’t stand, and none of it bothers you? Do what you can to be happy, share love with others and follow your own heart, and you’ll strengthen your tolerance for potential “energy bugs.”
2). If we’re hyper-vigilant, we fight love off without realizing it. Conditions like allergies or auto-immune conditions are signs that the immune system is hyper-active. Like a dog that barks just as loudly at your best friend, a squirrel or an actual threat, we can wear ourselves out this way, not to mention scare away true love.
3). In order to set a boundary, instead be the boundary. Fill your life so full of what you love, share your true self as all that you are… and then all that you aren’t will simply have no room to be around you! It’s like filling your gut so full of probiotics (good bacteria) so that the bad bacteria just gets crowded out!
4). What you resist, persists. Have you ever had an illness or injury and gotten mad at it, mad at your body, or mad at life because this “happened to you?” Have you ever wished you could just will a health condition, person or situation away? And then noticed it got worse?
Resistance is like glue; it will bind us to whatever we keep thinking about. So instead think “Love, ecstacy, bliss” or whatever words or images help you feel what you’d love to feel instead!
5). Forgive. From an emotional/ energetic standpoint, the key to all health is forgiveness. Your health reflects your relationships with self and other. Any time there is disharmony, your immune system has to work harder to figure out what to do about it.
When we forgive we are in a state of peace and unity, and from this space of self-love we of course would never let anything harmful in! From here “protection” becomes easy because, in general, the immune system has little to do and can easily and harmoniously recognize and handle a true “intruder”.
6). Move energy through your spine. From a physical & energetic standpoint, the spine is the key to health. When the nervous system is balanced, energy flows up and down the spine and out from there into all our organs, glands and entire body.
When there is a physical or energetic trauma (sounds dramatic, but most of us have them!) along the spine, our energy can’t flow as freely in our own bodies and so they don’t function as well. So, yoga, chiropractic, massage, or any exercise or treatment that helps the spine will help your overall health and immune system!
Given what I know about the physical nervous system’s role in immunity, I find it fascinating that many of the systems of energy clearing that I practice and teach involve visualizing energy flowing up and down the spine. As we imagine energy flowing through the chakras (energy centers), I believe we’re also subtly yet powerfully affecting our physical spine and nervous system, which in turn reaches our entire physical body!
