I’ve just watched Anita Moorjani’s preview video lesson, How Authenticity Heals You, from the Hay House HEAL Summit and this got me thinking of the connection between body and spirit.
Authenticity Heals You
As I look back on my life, I realize that for a while I would constantly suffer from allergies, get a cold and fever or just feel really down when I was at my lowest spiritually. While I never felt this at a conscious level, I realized I was stressed and just very unhappy at work. This happened both times I worked in corporate companies. Was my body telling me I was a misfit there?
It’s often hard for us to realize who we are and what we want. But, our body seems to signal that all is not well with our spirit.
Think about it. What happens to your body when you get angry? It tenses up – your jaw seems to tense and your shoulder rises. Sometimes, emotional pain leads to a stomach ache. When we acknowledge our emotions and not fight them, our body eases up.
I have found that when I am being true to myself and my calling, when I am sharing my fears and my pain, my health is very much better.
“What is true for us tends to make us feel stronger and more free. And lies tend to feel like constraint and constriction.”―Christine Carter
I’ve found too that the times I am not able to forgive myself for mistakes I’ve made or I’m struggling with my weaknesses, are the times that I start to feel ill. Not accepting ourselves too is being inauthentic. When we start to project ourselves in a way that is different from who we really are, we have to expend so much more energy to keep up the myth. This too takes a toll on our spiritual and physical health.
Though our experiences may differ, each of us has varying areas in need of healing, including healing of the mind, body, spirit, or healing from our past. The more we start to journal, be open to talking about our experiences, the healthier we become.

The connection between body and emotion is startling and enlightening. Truly, we are fearfully and wonderfully made!
The mind-body-spirit connection is very real. So often people ignore it, though, because there’s no “science” behind it. But science is only just catching up to what spiritual practitioners already know through experience. And I’m wondering how come I haven’t heard of the Heal summit! Going to check it out now. Thanks! 🙂
This post comes at the right time for me, Corinne. I have been doing healing meditation to lessen my physical pain and I can see some positive results of it. I am going to watch the videos of Heal summit one at a time from tomorrow. I am aware of authenticity and emotional healing but I am yet to explore a connection between authenticity and physical sickness.Let me see what I discover with Heal Summit.
I remember someone telling me listening to the body aches where this aspect of mine is communicating with me. I follow Anita Morjani, an influential and inspiring lady, remembering how stress can wreak havoc on me what with anxiety. That’s true and got to learn in accepting things rather than fighting them.
Very true that mind body and spirit are intricately connected. I will check out the Heal Summit. Thanks for sharing.
The more we talk the better wee heal. And this is so true. Knowing this very well, there are elements of my life I tend to not talk about. I wonder why. Am I afraid ? Or am I just not emphasising on the need to heal? Sigh! Life and its myriad questions.
I agree that our body responds to our emotional well being. We get sick when we are stressed and dissatisfied with something or are going through some kind of emotional turmoil. It is a natural response that we get sick.
And I signed up for this. Thanks a lot.
This is something I ought to check out, soon!
Thank you for sharing, Corinne!
I could relate to this article. During one of the job stints, I used to try and find excuses for not showing up. I could literally feel the sickness. I quit soon after. Emotional well-being and physical well-being are intrinsically connected.
Thanks for sharing, Sonia. This is interesting since we both worked in Banks! 🙂
I needed this post right now ! To quote one of your comments on one of my posts, “Did you write this for me?” 🙂
Ah, it just seems that we’re more connected than we realize, Sunita. So glad we are!
Agree. Our mind affects the health of our body. Our thoughts and feelings can positively or negatively affect the functioning of our body. Stressful or panicky situations give me tummy aches and headaches. Will check out The Hay House HEAL Summit. Thanks for sharing, Corinne!
How true Corinne. When mind and body are in sync, we experience highest joy/health of both the mind and body. I was reading a book by Mitch Albom (The art of Purring) where he talks about something similar – when we meditate, our mind is freed of any and every obstructions and gradually we begin to experience a lightness that transcends physical part of life. This conciousness carries us forth (if we let it) and helps us to trigger happiness and contentment in our life.
Incidentally, Louisa Hay’s book is next on my TBR 😉
Too often we try to separate mind and body. Louise Hay’s books are wonderful!
