Revealed: How to Heal Your Body and Spirit

Revealed: How to Heal Your Body and Spirit
Did you know that disturbing emotions can be bad for your health? Emotions such as anger, frustration, anxiety and even jealousy can manifest in the physical body and end up as ulcers, allergies, migraines and even back pain, if not more. 

This is one reason that simple practices such as yoga, tai-chi and even chi-gong can be so restorative for the mind, body and spirit. Reiki is also one of the most effective methods to heal your body and spirit.

Everything is energy, and the truth of the matter is that energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be transformed.

If you believe in this theory, you see that hurtful emotions can often transform into illness and disease. Physics tells us that if you match the frequency of the reality you want, you cannot help but get that reality. 

If this statement is true, then if you focus on healing, then healing will come. Wellbeing encompasses all of your parts, not just your physical body. 

When your emotions are in turmoil and you are continually anxious and stressed, you aren’t really doing yourself any favours for healing. A wonderful way to heal the body and spirit is through physical practices such as yoga, tai chi and chi-gong. 

Yoga 


The ancient practice of yoga has been around for over 5,000 years. Most Westernised yoga classes focus on physical poses, also known as asanas. 

Many cultures practised some kind of yoga, dating back as far as the mid-third millennium BC. Yoga is not only beneficial for strengthening the physical body, but it also helps one heal the mind and spirit through its meditative focus. 

Yoga has many benefits, including helping to decrease depression and lower anxiety, and it can even help with sleep disorders and help you better manage pain. People describe Yoga as a general term that represents the physical, mental and spiritual disciplines that originated in ancient India. 

Yoga is one of six schools of Hindu philosophy. Most forms of yoga include a breathing technique and some kind of meditative technique. 

While some forms of yoga focus purely on relaxation, others focus on core strength, muscle toning, balance, and flexibility. A simple yoga practice can help you both physically and mentally, similar to the practices of tai chi and chi-gong.

Tai Chi 


Tai chi, an ancient Chinese tradition, is a very graceful form of exercise. It involves a slow, focused series of movements accompanied with deep breathing. 

Tai chi, also called Tai Chi Chuan, is a noncompetitive traditional form of exercise and movement. You perform poses at your own pace, with each pose flowing gracefully into the next. 

There are many styles of tai chi, each with its own subtle variety. Research has shown that tai chi may have some health benefits besides improved mental wellbeing, as some studies show favourable effects on balance control, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. 

Studies also show that tai chi can help reduce the risk of falls in elderly patients and those who are recovering from heart failure, stroke, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. 

Tai chi may also be beneficial for stress relief, besides improved mental health, with one study suggesting that one hour to one year of regular practice can increase psychological well-being while reducing stress, depression and anxiety. Tai chi can also help also in enhancing the mood, so it is beneficial to both the body and the spirit. 

Chi-Gong 


The ancient practice of chi-gong or qi-gong, however you want to say it, is based on the idea that chi or qi is energy that flows through the body. The energy pathways can get blocked at any point in the body, creating illness and disease. 

When you engage in a practice such as chi-gong, the theory is that you free up these energetic pathways, increasing the flow of chi, which can help you improve your health and your spirit. Chi-gong involves different movements that are done in different orders. 

You may use chi-gong to improve posture, coordination, endurance, or even flexibility. The practice also helps you maintain good health and improved quality of life. 

According to the theory of yin and yang, a Chinese-based principle, these types of gentle movements can help balance the body’s yin and yang forces. Any way you put it, these kinds of gentle exercises can help you because they are not only beneficial for restoring physical health, they are also beneficial in restoring and maintaining good mental health. 

For simple ways to heal the body and spirit, these ancient practices can give you a lot of bang for your buck.
