The Mind-Body Connection
August 9, 2022
There is a mind-body connection. In fact, your body is your friend. I know those words might seem strange to you if you're have a particular ailment you're dealing with. But it's true.
If you stop looking at your body as "trying to hurt you" when things go wrong; when in truth "it's trying to heal you" you won't panic as much (or at all) when going through trials with your body.
Bodily troubles happen to the best of us no matter how well we try to take care of it. However, if we maintain "mental awareness" we find that even though the body is signaling that something is wrong...it won't frighten you.
You see, the body is not only a physical manifestation. It's a manifestation of our consciousness as well. And if you can find the mental component that's making your body "sick" it will help greatly with healing. This is where we go into metaphysics i.e. beyond physics. For every part of the body there is a mental component.
The author Louise Hay has written a number of books on the mind-body connection. She states that "Illness however mild or severe is an indicator of your emotional state, caused by your thoughts and focus" Read more HERE.
According to hopkinsmedicine.org:
How does the brain work?
The brain sends and receives chemical and electrical signals throughout the body. Different signals control different processes, and your brain interprets each. Some make you feel tired, for example, while others make you feel pain.
Some messages are kept within the brain, while others are relayed through the spine and across the body’s vast network of nerves to distant extremities. To do this, the central nervous system relies on billions of neurons (nerve cells)."
Put in metaphysical terms "your brain/mind is where you live and what goes on "up there" 100% effects what's happening "down there" i.e. your body.
The Pineal Gland
An extremely important part of the brain is the pineal gland. This wonderous gland is said to be "the place where our God connection takes place within the body."
The site siddhaspirituality.com provides an accurate description of the pineal gland:
"The pineal gland, a pine-cone-shaped gland of the endocrine system, is a highly essential part of the brain necessary for our survival. It is often associated with the third eye or the Agya chakra, when activated, which leads one to higher realms of consciousness.
Some may think of the spiritual world as being completely beyond and outside of our bodies. In fact, the opposite might be the case. Scientists cannot confirm or deny the role of the pineal gland (third eye) in spiritual experience, but the pineal gland plays the dominant role in spirituality in many cultures around the world, and this for many thousand years.
Just as we have organs like our ears to help us hear sound waves, we have the pineal gland to help us attune to the spiritual world.

The article details various aspects of the pineal gland such as pineal gland function, pineal gland physical importance, benefits of the awakening pineal gland, and more.
I would also like to add that once you awaken the pineal gland, you will see the spiritual eye. This "eye" is a beautiful deep-rich azure blue with a gold center. You will definitely feel a difference within your being once "this eye is opened." It is also associated with the sixth chakra. Learn more about the spiritual eye's chakra connection HERE.
I believe that working on the power of the mind will solve many of your life problems whether physical or spiritual. There's a whole new world to discover once you discover the power of your mind.
