Sunday, March 1st, 2015 Focus: I seriously consider illness as a message from my soul encoded in my body.

?????
We have all heard someone say, “It’s all in your head!” when the doctor has been unable to identify a medical condition even though we feel miserable. The term often applied to these sorts of complaints is “psychosomatic”.

While we should exhaust all the possibilities of medical diagnosis, we should also seriously consider these sorts of conditions as messages from our soul encoded in the body. The hard-driving executive (or middle-manager trying to survive) who has a heart attack at 40 or 45 is a classic example in our society.

Working sixty to eighty hours a week leaves very little time for anything but eating, showering, commuting, and a little sleep. Usually, the overworked person in our society neglects personal health and “matters of the heart” — meaningful relationships, compassion, empathy. Eventually, the heart protests against such mistreatment in the form of cardiac problems, sometimes preceded by noticeable symptoms.
