The great American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said that ‘you are what you think about all day long’. The wisdom of the ages teaches us that ‘as within, so without’. In other words, if you think about lack and limitation, you will experience lack and limitation in your outer world. If you think prosperity, you will experience prosperity. If you give hate, you will get hate. If you give love, you will get love. So it is with the state of our physical health. Negativity and complaint is reflected in the state of our physical health! Accordingly, if you are angry, sad, envious or jealous, hateful, anxious, those negative emotions will ultimately be reflected in the state of your physical health. Positive thoughts lead to positive emotions. “Whatsoever is true, whatsoever is honest, whatsoever is pure, whatsoever is lovely and of good report, if there be any virtue, dwell on these things Phillippians 4:8
Cellular biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton asserts that 85% of disease is stress-related. Accordingly, if you are feeling stressed, it is possible to adjust your thought patterns to minimize, if not eliminate entirely, the stresses you are feeling in your life.
