Healing emotions and mental healing are deeply intertwined.
Thoughts, feelings, beliefs and emotions are in a perpetual dance with each other. Thoughts and beliefs lead to emotions. Your feelings and emotions influence your thoughts.
Whether your aim is focused on emotional healing or on improving your mental state, you are likely to address and affect both aspects regardless of your 'way in'.
From a holistic viewpoint, when you are experiencing physical dis-ease, it is always beneficial to explore your emotional and mental wellness along with symptoms manifesting in the body. Sometimes, there is a direct link between an emotional trauma and a physical illness. This is because your mind, body, and spirit are entirely connected.
Experts used to believe that the mind was another name for your brain. Now they realize that your mind is also in your body. This may sound strange, but think about it. When you feel anxious or stressed, do you feel butterflies in your stomach and get sweaty hands? Have you ever observed babies? They have not yet learned to mask their feelings so every nuance of emotion shows in their faces and bodies.
This mind-body connection can work in your favor.
It is not uncommon for positive beliefs and healed emotions to create spontaneous healing in the body without medical intervention. Likewise, correcting imbalances in the body positively affects your mental wellness.
On the flip side, negative emotion and beliefs contribute to illness and poor outcomes. They sap energy needed for a healthy, happy life and can close you off from opportunities to heal and change your life for the better.
With this in mind, it is easy to see how mental healing is almost always needed along with physical healing. Sometimes it is all that is needed.
