Overlooked Cause of Anxiety, Depression, Migraines, Heart Attacks, and Cancer

What if the cure for stress, anxiety, and depression could never be found in a pill? What if the cure for migraines, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer could never be found in drugs, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy?

What if the billions of dollars that we spend on the application of surgical and pharmaceutical cures is simply managing symptoms, while the root of our mental-emotional and physical ills evades us? What if we are failing to address the true cause?

Whether you’re aware of it or not, it’s likely you have a bias toward seeing everything in terms of physical cause and effect. In fact, this bias may be so ingrained, that you wonder what other possibility exists. After all, isn’t this what we’ve learned from science over the past several centuries?

What if this “reduction of everything to material causes” is simply a bias—and one that discounts the very source of mental-emotional stress and all kinds of illness? What if, instead, physical symptoms appear after they have manifested from a more primary layer of your being? What if treating this more primary layer could result in real cures?

In fact, this view is not all that far out. It has been recognized and documented for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurvedic medicine, as well as in healing traditions such as Qigong and Reiki.

In all these disciplines it is recognized that the source of illness lies in the energetic dimension and it is communicated through to the physical within the bio-chemical, electro-magnetic, and connective tissue systems of your body.

Before you think that we’re talking about placebos and pseudo-science, did you know that Reiki is now accepted as complementary treatment in more than 800 hospitals in the U.S. alone? This is because it works.

Reiki has well-documented research showing that it improves patient sleep by 86 percent, reduces pain by 78 percent, and reduces anxiety by as much as 94 percent. In addition, it has been shown to increase speed of healing by as much as 50 percent. Pretty remarkable for a simple form of “energy work.”

O.K. so how does it work?

Reiki, Qigong, TCM, and Ayurvedic medicine begin by seeing the body as an expression of a more primary subtle energy system. Health is the result of the smooth free-flow of subtle energy through the energy body. Disease begins with the disruption of energy flow, with some blockage or tension that causes energy to become stagnant.

The cause of energy disruptions can be physical injuries which cause “emotional shock” such as from a car accident or, more commonly, they are the result of tensions caused by mental stress and emotional trauma. When tension and stress overwhelm our ability to handle them well in the moment, they become stored as tension in your “energy body.” These tensions disrupt energy flow. Left unresolved, over time, this is the seed from which illness grows—whether that is chronic anxiety, depression, migraines, digestive issues, heart attack, or cancer.

Subtle energy techniques aim to recognize, relax, and release that tension and restore the smooth flow of vital energy. This in turn enables your body’s own self-healing mechanisms to come back online so your body can heal itself.

Now, this doesn’t mean that there is never a use for drugs or surgery. These can be vital and life-saving first measures. These can manage immediate life-threatening symptoms. However, to facilitate true healing, we must work on an energetic level to restore the free flow of energy which characterizes good health.

What if you could learn to access this subtle energetic layer to facilitate your own health and well-being on a daily basis? What if doing this could release layers of tension that have accumulated in your energy body over the years, dragging down your energy, mood, health, and vitality?

That is the promise of energy meditation.

Here at The Mind-Body Training Company, energy meditation is our specialty. Matt and I have practiced these techniques ourselves for decades. And, it’s our mission and purpose to give you the best tips, tools, and techniques to practice effectively.

When Anger is Productive and When It’s Not

We’ve all witnessed the negative effects of anger, when it is reactive, self-righteous, and violent. However, there is also a positive energy and purpose in anger that is important to pay attention to and use wisely. In this post, we’ll talk about both faces of anger, how to differentiate them, and how to use anger productively.

As with all emotions, anger contains energy and information. In the case of anger, the energy is rising strength and the message is: “something needs protection.” Understanding this essential purpose in anger can help us to recognize what anger is trying to tell us and how we can use that energy and information in a good way.

The positive purpose in anger is to protect yourself or others in the face of a threat to well-being. For example, you see someone being harmed and the anger you feel alerts you and empowers you to step in and set a firm boundary against what is happening. An appropriate use of that anger is to firmly say “No!” or “Stop!” or to physically step in the middle and disarm the perpetrator.

When we understand the purpose of anger we can be more conscious of how to use this energy wisely. Then, we can accomplish the mission of protection while minimizing any harm done in the process. For example, we can use words and reason first and then defensive actions if required.

However, sometimes anger flares when we don’t really need to protect anything. This type of anger protects something that it is really better to release and let go. A whole lot of unnecessary conflict can be avoided if we let this anger go instead of following it. I’ll give you a small example that happened to me yesterday.

I was at the gym doing my Sunday workout. As I was going through my routine, I found that the machine I usually use next was occupied. The person occupying the machine was sitting there texting. Following normal gym etiquette, I asked if I could “work in,” which means that one person alternates with the other while the other person is resting between sets.

To my surprise, the person sitting on the machine said, “I’d prefer if you didn’t, I’m super-setting.” Whether it was the tone of how he said that or the fact that he was texting and not super-setting, I don’t know, but instantly my anger flared. In a nano-second, I rationalized my feeling into a full-blown, self-righteous anger.

I thought: “Does he think he owns the place? . . . What gives him more right than me? . . . He’s texting! . . . What an ______________! . . .”

Now the reality of the situation was, there was a machine right next to that one, that was similar enough that I could use it instead—and I did. Yet, as I was using it, I found myself wanting to verbally put him in his place. Angry words continued to run through my brain. My ego was hurt and I wanted revenge. O.K. that might be dramatic for such a small offense, but how often is anger overblown like that?

Fortunately, my better sense got hold of me and, after doing my sets on the machine next to him, I moved away to another part of the gym. Yet, I still had to work with mind. I told myself that what happened hadn’t hindered my workout at all, it just slightly adjusted my normal routine—and probably in a good way. A little variety is good for the muscles.

I also realized that his statement had triggered an old reaction of “feeling less than others”—something I’ve struggled with through my life. In some cases, it has been important for me to stand up and express myself. Yet, in this case, it really didn’t matter. I knew it was best to just let it go.

Still, little nagging angry thoughts kept running through my head—until I took one more step in my mind. I put myself in his shoes. I realized that there were many times in the past that I had felt like him. I don’t like to be interrupted in my routine and, when I am on a machine, I don’t like to give it up. Now, I usually do let others “work in” when they ask, but I understood his feeling, because I’ve often felt that way myself. When I put myself in his shoes and tried to understand where he was coming from, my anger stepped down another few notches.

Then I decided to take it one step further. I looked across the room at him and wished him a good workout. I know how important a good workout is to me, so I sent that message to him. I don’t know if it made any difference to him, but it took the final edge off my anger. I was able to completely let it go and move on.

So, the message here is that sometimes anger has a positive purpose, sometimes it arises to protect something that needs protection. At other times, anger may be defending something that is better let go. In that case, the positive purpose in anger could be to put ourselves in another’s shoes and consciously let our anger go. Maybe the bottom-line is that anger can always be used productively when we approach it consciously and use it wisely.

I hope you find this helpful when you feel the energy of anger rising up in you.

Enjoy your practice,
