When we think of illness, both social and personal, we have to consider both internal and external causes.
Because we live in a socially culturally conditioned world where someone has to be blamed as being the cause of illness or the absence of our wellness, it is difficult for individuals to take personal responsibility for their illnesses and diseases.
To be ‘ill’ means to not be ‘well’.
“Well” is defined within this context as a wide spectrum of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual spheres of wellness and perception of absence or presence of suffering, happiness, inner peace, and bliss.
Physical illness can mostly be attributed to genetic predispositions, nutrient inputs or deficiencies, lifestyle choices of exercise or lack of mobility, and prevention of over-exertion or abuse through addictive behaviours.
This area of wellness is controlled and affected by the functioning of the basic, sex, navel, and meng mein chakras, while being mediated by the ajna and throat chakras providing the will and knowledge for taking action.
Emotional wellness attributed to being able to enjoy equanimity or ‘evenness of feelings’, not experiencing suffering through extreme experiencing of fear, anger, hatred, sadness, envy,or jealousy.
The main chakras affecting and controlling our emotions are the meng mein, stimulating cortisol and adrenaline, the ajna or will center which controls thoughts and emotions, the throat which is responsible for details, knowledge and speech, and major influence from the solar plexus chakras, both front and back, which are responsible for our lower emotional “I want” desires and cravings.
Mental wellness depends on our ability to control our thoughts and the extent to which we attach emotions to those thoughts, messages, and voices which live in our minds and which percolate into our energy auras and which continuously revisit our consciousness as ‘old tapes’ or ‘looped messages’ which prevent us from experiencing inner stillness of mind, and eventually achieving intuitive wisdom.
The chakras which affect mental wellness are the ajna, throat, heart,solar plexus, and basic.
Our spiritual wellness depends on our connection to our Soul. The Soul is that part of ourselves which is eternal, which contains the golden spark within us, which is that aspect of our ‘selves’ which is connected to our ‘higher Soul’ and to the Divine Spark and the Causal Essence which we call ‘GOD’.
A situation of forgetfulness allows human beings to perceive themselves as being the ‘body’ and forget that they are spiritual beings in a physical form. These individuals find themselves detached from their souls and their spiritual cord is often times no larger than the thickness of a hair.
For these individuals who are dis-connected from the ‘higher energies’ of the universe, they are truly on their own, without the resources which spiritual connection brings: access to divine help, guidance, and protection, love, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.
The chakras which affect spiritual wellness are the heart, crown, ajna, and throat.
Where do you fit? Do you have awareness daily of each of these spheres of wellness and are you taking measures to ensure that you are maximizing every chance for wellness, inner peace, joy, and bliss?
It’s up to you, finally, to make choices which promote wellness or allow your ‘self’ to slide into ‘illness’ and ‘disease’.
