emotions; Heal Your Body with Emotions


Emotions can have a significant impact on our overall wellbeing.

To begin with, a positive mindset and emotions can help to support the healing process by reducing stress levels and promoting a sense of calm and relaxation which can lead to improved Physical health.

In addition, Research has shown that emotions can impact various bodily functions including the immune system, cardiovascular system and even the expression of genes.

Similarly, when you focus on your emotions, you can initiate healing in your body.

For example, chronic stress can weaken the immune system and increase inflammation in the body which can contribute to a range of health issues such as heart diseases, type 2 diabetes and autoimmune disorders.

moreover, As human beings, we are thinking from the time we wake up to the time we sleep. So, if we are thinking all the time, we need to examine the quality of those thoughts. Every emotion we feel is because of a thought we have.

We can’t feel unhappiness without unhappy thoughts, anger without angry thoughts, similarly jealousy and laziness. Thus, it becomes extremely important to monitor the thoughts going through the mind.

It’s very easy for others to have positive thoughts but it is not always practical.

When someone going through depression or feeling sad or worried telling them to think positive is just scratching the wall. It is not a solution. Even the happiest person also has negative thoughts and stress.

It’s all depends on how to handle negativity in life. We must have to learn and accept that negativity is real.

Furthermore, We have the power to stop it or allow it to grow more and more. At that time, we could try to focus on what positive things happen in life, each and every one of us has something positive in life, whether in the present or in the past.

So far, we have learnt that thoughts and emotions have negative or positive effects on the body. 

But let’s try to understand it in depth with a few facts and myths. Most diseases are psychosomatic, they originate in the mind.

“Once you heal your mind, the body follows.” (J.J. Gold wag)

Facts about the body that could heal your health; –

Myth 1; Diet + Exercise = Healthy body.

Fact 1; Diet + Exercise + Healthy mind = Healthy body.


We believe that if we follow a healthy balanced diet and proper exercise routine daily, we will get a healthy body.

But, A healthy body is not possible if the mind is trapped by negativity. Negative emotions suppress the immune system and our body suffers from disease.

In addition, A healthy mind and a positive mindset can certainly support the healing process and promote overall health and wellbeing. Healing process in body is depends on 80% positive mindset and 20% body’s function.

Myth 2; Diseases Cure = Treatment + Medicines

Fact 2; Diseases Cure = Environment

Let’s understand with an example, a fish in a tank or aquarium, when the fishes are sick, do you give them a pill? Of course not, we change the water, right? I don’t want to say that we should not take medicines to treat disease.

I am not against medicines. Medicines are necessary in many chronic diseases or in severe cases but the surround environment also needs to be changed.

Along with medicines, a fresh positive and spiritual environment also plays a major role in the healing process.

Let’s understand with another example, In Solomon Island, the tribals don’t cut down trees. They Surround the trees and curse it for hours every day. Within a few weeks, the tree dries up and dies.

This is hard to believe but it is true. If there is this effect of negative over trees then with negative emotions, our body cells could vibrate and become weak.


Myth 3; Diseases can’t be reversed.

Fact 3; Every second, our body is changing and getting renewed.

Every second, cells are dying and new cells are being made, it is scientifically proven. every second body is renewed,

Example; Intestine lining- Every 3 days,

Skin- Every 28 days,

Liver- Every 8 weeks,

Nervous system- every 8 months,

Bones- Every year,

98% 0f atoms changed in a year.

Furthermore, Let’s try to understand deeply, What builds our cells; – 

-Exercise- Once a day,

-Food- 3 to 5 times a day,

-Thoughts and Emotions- Every second of the day.

That means we can do the exercise once a day, 3 to 5 times a day, eat food to create new cells, but we can generate new cells every second from thoughts and emotions.

So, think for yourself, what is more powerful and shapes your body? The answer is thoughts and emotion, right?

We have every single second of our life to heal the body and generate new cells.

John Hopkins University, have established that resentful thoughts may not be cause for diseases but they can aggravate the symptoms.

Likewise, emotions can be powerful tool in the healing process for our body.

Myth 4; We need to repair the body.

Fact 4; Body has a self-healing system.

The body is naturally wired to heal itself (employee), but the mind operates the self-healing system (Boss). The problem is we are not allowing the body to heal itself.

Now, we have understood how emotions can heal the body, but the question is how will the change come?

One powerful tool will change that. That is Responsibility.

Take 100% responsibility of your health and life. stop criticizing yourself and others.

“Every human being is the Author of his own health and diseases”.

                                                                (Swami Sivananda Saraswati)

Many people have assumed that my life is like this, whatever good, best or worst, there is no such change in my life. we should take responsibility for that “I am willing to change”.

Responsibility = Response + Ability

It means that, in any situation, whatever positive or negative comes around us, how to respond to it is in our hands.

How to heal body with our thoughts; –

(1) The power of belief;

 “Start to believe that you can heal yourself”.

Initially, Our Subconscious mind accepts what we choose to believe. The subconscious mind does 95% of the work, if you feed it with such thoughts in the same way our body cells will work and we get health.

Similarly, The law of our mind is the law of belief. The belief of our mind is the thought of our mind. Our subconscious mind is like a huge memory Bank. The conscious mind can be described as whatever we are currently aware of.

Moreover, Consciousness does not involve stored information. In contrast our subconscious mind is always working in the background. Our subconscious mind stores information such as what we feel, touch and think.

Therefore, Never use the term ‘I can’t do’ this. our subconscious mind except what we choose to believe.

Likewise, Let’s talk about one story of a real athlete, Roger Bannister Who is known as the first four-minute mile, won the mile race with a time of 3 minutes and 59.4 second. For years, so many athletes had tried and failed to run a mile in less than 4 minutes that people made it out to be a physical impossibility.

Since then, from 1954 to 2023, 1064 athletes have finished this one mile, under 4 minutes. Do you think? How can it be possible? Because then the subconscious mind of athletes started to accept that, it can be possible.

This is called power of belief and power of subconscious mind.

(2) Our health and well-being are enhanced when we feel joyous. Positive thoughts of love, hope and courage are the best vitamins we can offer to our body. They nourish organs and rejuvenate our energy levels.

According to Ayurveda, the most effective way to bring our kapha, pitta and vata into balance is to self-love, forgiveness and acceptance. About 2500 thoughts run through our mind every hour.

Just imagine their potential of healing power if they are joyous and optimistic.

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so”.                       

The Buddha had declared 25 centuries ago; “All that we are is the result of what we have thoughts”. His words have powerful implication that our present is made up by our past thoughts and our future is made up by our present ones.

That is why all authentic systems of spirituality focus on inner transformation.

(3) Effects of placebo on the mind; – 

Now we will discuss the placebo effect. The placebo effect is more than positive Thinking, believing, treatment or procedure will work. Sometimes doctors give vitamin tablets to highly anxious patients for pain relief or calm the mind temporarily.

However, patients feel relief over pain and relaxation, because the subconscious mind of the patients has assumed that these medicines will work.

Now let’s learn the science behind placebo effects. It involves a complex neurological reaction that includes releases of feel-good neurotransmitters such as endorphins and dopamine.

Endorphins is natural painkiller and dopamine is reward hormone, providing a pleasurable effect.

“You can change How your DNA is expressed based on what you believe”.                                            (Dr. Bruce Lipton)

(4) Bonding with emotions; –

As the saying in Hindi, “Khali dimag, Shaitan ka ghar”. An empty mind is a Devil’s address. If we do not consciously nurture progressive thoughts, our mind creates productive ones on its own.

Stimuli from the environment make our emotions rise and fall. So, one event makes us angry, a second creates frustration and the third stimulates anxiety and so on. This becomes the roller coaster of our emotions.

Negative thoughts in the mind lead to a more serious problem. When a particular emotion is repeated multiple times, a neural pathway gets damaged.

If we become irritable a few 100 times, the feeling of irritability gets locked in. The brain’s programming begins to control us. When we make excuses for emotions, our focus is away from self-improvement to self-pity.

Therefore, we do not bother to manage our mind which starts to decay with negativity. The quality of our health depends on the quality of our emotions.

Similarly, by nurturing positive emotions, you can promote healing within your body.
