Heal Your Body from the Wounds of Skepticism

I recently found this book by Louise Hay called “Heal Your Body” Her work often emphasizes the connection between mental patterns and physical health. Her book offers strategies on how to manage all kinds of dis-ease. This week my topic is anxiety.

    Anxiety can be defined as a multifaceted psychological state characterized by feelings of apprehension, worry, and unease. It often involves a sense of impending danger or doom, even when there is no immediate threat present. Anxiety can manifest in physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, trembling, and shortness of breath. It can also impact cognitive functioning, leading to difficulties in concentration, restlessness, and racing thoughts. While experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life, chronic or excessive anxiety can significantly interfere with daily functioning and overall well-being. In Louise Hay’s book, Heal Your Body, she observes that anxiety is not trusting the flow and the process of life.

    An affirmation from her book is I love and approve of myself, and I trust the process of life. I am safe. Here are other examples: I am safe and secure in this moment; I release all worries and embrace peace, I trust in the process of life and let go of fear. Repeat these affirmations throughout the day, especially during moments of heightened anxiety.

1. Mindfulness and meditation or deep breathing exercises to calm the mind and body

2. Engage in hobbies that bring enjoyment
