“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest (teach) their patients in the care of the human frame, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Health is the ideal balance between all major parts of our being (body, mind and soul) in conjunction with our environment and all we encounter. Holistic health encompasses our whole essence: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
We are all multidimensional beings that operate form physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions simultaneously.
Metaphysical means beyond the physical. It implies a causation beyond the physical. As humans we have the tendency to look at ourselves from a limited perspective. We are encased in flesh. We may speak of the soul or the spirit, but we are physical creatures. We think, feel, act and react from a physical awareness, but we are more than just physical beings. Those thoughts and feelings, although not tangibly physical, do affect physical conditions and perspectives. They are a dimension to our essence that very strongly affects our physical well-being.
Inside each of us is a level of our subconscious that responds literally, like a child, to all of our thoughts and expressions. This level also works to maintain our health. It takes our thoughts, feelings, expressions and sets them in motion so that they can manifest.
Through the holistic process we learn to bring our body back into balance.
The ancient healers recognized the importance of treating the whole person, not just symptoms They recognized the importance of paying attention to everything. They recognized the importance of knowing how the body functions and thus they were able to use methods that promoted its natural functions. They recognized the importance of the spiritual growth of the individual in the healing process.
Where we place our thoughts, that is where energy will begin to manifest. If we change our imaginings, we change our world. We must begin to dwell upon the infinite possibilities, rewards, blessings and potentials that are possible within our lives, rather than how limited we are. As we learn to do so, we find that we don not have to be at the mercy of our life circumstances or our bodies. We can bring light, energy and health into our lives and into the lives of others.
