There is an abundance of scientific research indicating that 85% of all diseases have an emotional component, like feelings of anger, apathy, depression, resentment, which weaken the immune system and therefore damage our health. On the other hand, positive thoughts of love, humor, joy, resiliency and compassion support good physical health. Every thought, whether positive or negative, has physical consequences, for better or worse, on our health.
The wisdom in this regard states that illness is a conspiracy cooked up in the unconscious mind and manifested in our bodies. It is no longer a question of staying healthy; it is a question of finding a sickness you like to serve an internal unconscious purpose, an “illness manual” if you will. You may choose one that attacks the body part you are most uncomfortable with, or don’t like, just to serve unconscious negative feelings.
