How To Heal Your Mental Body And Transform Your Life

Our outer physical body is a manifestation of our inner consciousness. It is the product of the thoughts that make up our belief system. Whether consciously or unconsciously, our thoughts will eventually manifest in our outer world. In order for healing in our outer world to be anything more than a temporary fix we must transmute the origins of the dis-ease in our mental body. Otherwise, our outer symptoms will eventually return to reflect our inner turmoil. The bottom line is we must change our consciousness.

Not all imbalances in our mental body will have obvious manifestations in our physical body. Some may manifest more obviously in our emotional body and/or the circumstances we create in our lives. To use myself as an example, I am from a single parent family of a white mother and black father. I didn’t know my father growing up and neither did my mother speak of him. This fostered in me a deep sense of abandonment and confusion, on account of having no male influence and no connection to my black heritage. In order to cope on the mental and emotional levels I developed a prejudice against black men. This was a mental sickness. I was a child with black ancestry who for all intents and purposes was racist! Although not something I was proud of or shared with many, it was a belief system I held well into my twenties. Only when I immersed myself in African culture did I somehow find the ‘cure’. By surrounding myself with black men was I able to transmute the negative core belief that had plagued me for most of my life. It was that simple… immersion.

Your mental body lives in duality. It is ultimately conscious of both sides, but is easily conditioned and influenced to favor certain attitudes, especially when you are young and vulnerable. In my case, not only did I protect myself from a sense of abandonment through the formation of warped beliefs, my attitudes were also shaped by the fact that I grew up in an area where covert racism was the norm. When I travelled the world I didn’t consciously decide that I was going to heal my mental affliction, it seemed to just happen, but with hindsight I learned something fundamental that allows me to help others with their own transformations.

In your quest to heal negative attitudes and beliefs there are certain holistic therapies that can directly help you heal the mental body, although it’s important to note that any healing that takes place in the mental realm also affects the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Everything is connected.

Here are three examples:

Dance and Music Therapy
Do you feel a sense of joy and exhilaration when you dance to your their favorite music? I’m guessing yes! Dance Therapy has been used as a complementary energy medicine since the 1940’s and is thought to help alleviate symptoms of depression and promote overall health. I would have to confirm this based on my own experience of using dance and music to lift my mood. It’s fun!

Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is often used to treat trauma, depression and addiction. Hypnotherapy is said to be effective because it accesses the subconscious mind, not just the conscious mind. It treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms that show up in the conscious mind which typically accounts for only 10%. Hypnotherapy reaches the deeper levels of mental issues that are buried and often completely blanked out as a result of some traumatic experience.
Hypnotherapy helps to remove the underlying blocks in the mental and emotional bodies, thus making affirmations more effective. It is only our mental and emotional blockages that prevent our positive affirmations from manifesting.

Light & Sound Therapy
Light and Sound therapy works by balancing the chakras and bringing the bodies into alignment with their natural harmonics. Each part of our energy system has a unique rate of vibration. When any aspect is out of sync, ill health can occur. In simple terms, sound and light therapy works by restoring our natural resonance and continued use trains our bodies to vibrate at their natural frequencies.

Whatever beliefs or attitudes you have that are holding you back from your highest joy and excitement, find a way to shift your consciousness to believe the opposite. Surround yourself with people who have healthy attitudes and avoid those who feed your negative beliefs. If your goal is to heal a dis-ease in the physical body, surround yourself with people who believe you can heal. Avoid those that feed your fear or tell you ‘it’s not possible!’. No! Anything is possible if you believe! Your thoughts create your reality. You may have to make some difficult decisions to withdraw from certain people, but in order to successfully transmute negative beliefs you must leave behind ALL that does not serve you. Make everything you do, read and say affirm the positive mental attitude you want to cultivate. Know this, even the most ingrained and extreme negative attitudes can be transformed, and quickly. What generally takes the time is finding the willpower to initiate the change. Once you make the commitment to heal, that healing is well within your grasp. Plant the seeds in your mental body and eventually those seeds will grow and flourish in all aspects of your being. Before you know it you will be transformed.
