Is Your Other Immune System Working?


Published:


We live in a strange world where millions, if not billions, are spent on maintaining the health of our bodies, while, by comparison, little is spent on the wellness of our being. While they are intimately connected, health and well-being are different, and only a few seem to recognize that our well-being is primary and physical health is secondary.

Some of the symptoms of an unwell being include feeling stressed, grumpy, critical, resentful, defensive, resistant, closed, depressed and frequently unhappy for no apparent reason. The signs of a well being include being contented, easy, open, warm, accepting, flexible, enthusiastic and having a sunny attitude. Some people have ill health but remain well in their being. Others have perfect health but are almost always unwell. 

We all know about the body’s built-in immune system to maintain its physical health, but less evident is that we also have an immune system designed to maintain our well-being. However, while our physical immune system is working automatically at every moment of our lives, the immune system of our well-being has to be consciously activated every day.

Both our physical health and the wellness of our being are affected by the influence of energy. Imagine you are sitting with a group of friends. You are all talking happily, feeling upbeat and positive, while enjoying each other’s company. There are frequent moments when you all break out into peels of laughter. Then Mr. Grumpy arrives. He's just had a run in with someone who pressed his angry button and he enters the group conversation with moaning, whining and complaining, passing his anger onto the group. The group energy suddenly becomes dark, smiles disappear, the laughter has gone. As if Mr. Grumpy was a virus, a dis-ease has instantly spread through the group.

When a deviant energy in the form of a virus or harmful bacteria finds its way into the body, it influences the cellular energy of the body. Some diseases are minor and temporary while others are major and fatal. Within our consciousness we also suffer from moments and periods of dis-ease. These moments can range from subtle feelings of uneasiness to extreme emotional disturbances involving anger or fear. All moments of dis-ease are also the result of a viral infection, known as beliefs. As a result, we can create and feel various forms of emotional disturbance, otherwise known as suffering and unhappiness.

Body and Consciousness 

Like the energy of our body that can become polluted by material substances, the energy of our consciousness can become polluted by beliefs we are fed and assimilate through our parents, teachers and society. Even as children there are some foods we reject and just will not eat. However, children haven't yet refined their ability to discern the consequences of adopting certain beliefs, so they accept all the beliefs they are fed as truths.

When we adopt others’ beliefs as our own truths, we start to generate moments of dis-ease as we blindly follow and defend those beliefs against perceived threats and possibly attempt to impose them on others. The first symptoms of any dis-ease are felt at an emotional level. For example, the perfectionist suffers from perfectionism and therefore experiences frequent moments of irritation. The perfectionist feels irritated simply because he or she lives in the world that is not, and can never be, exactly, precisely, the way they believe it should be. The curing of perfectionism requires three steps.  

First is the awareness there are feelings of irritation and frustration and that they are self-created. Next is the realization of the viral belief that the application of a specific methodology should result in an outcome that is…perfect! A cure is only possible when there is the realization of the truth that there is ultimately no one right way, no perfect way, that can be prescribed for anything or anyone. When this truth is fully assimilated, the dis-ease disappears and there is a transformation of the energy of the perfectionist.

Arthritis is a common disease of the body, especially in the older age ranges, but it is also a dis-ease of our well-being. Just as the joints of the body start to become rigid and painful to move, so we become rigid in our beliefs. It becomes painful to move our thinking enough to be open to new ideas and ways of understanding.

One of the main symptoms of arthritic thinking will be a feeling of resentment toward those who seem to know more and want to help us explore new viewpoints or learn something new. There will be frequent thoughts like, "I know the best way. This is the way I have done it all my life and it’s still the best way today." However, one day, the arthritic soul may become aware that they are “fed up” with their own resentment, tired of their own suffering and probably lonely at the lack of friends. They let go for a moment and realize there is no one right idea or belief, there are always different ways to perceive and a new flexibility gradually replaces the old rigidity. By activating the immune system of our well-being it becomes possible to eliminate dis-ease and restore our being to a state of consistent wellness.
