Pillar 2: The Mindbody Connection

the mind-body connectionWhen God designed us, he chose our minds and bodies to relate to each other, hence the mindbody connection. Neuroscientists, like Caroline Leaf, have been invaluable in explaining how traumas impact upon our bodies. In fact, the body is a reflection of the mind.

We can develop coping strategies, patterns of thinking and learned behaviours which often appear to us as ‘normal’, but results in our souls not prospering the way God intended. We cannot look at healing therefore without exploring the possibility that our thinking, emotions, environment and the traumas we’ve lived through have contributed to the onset of the illnesses we now live with.

If you’re living with a chronic illness, your healing could be in understanding the mindbody connection. The good news is, our brains can be rewired. Whoop whoop!

“Our souls are dismantled from birth and we must reassemble them as we age” Paul Scanlon

A really great prayer to pray when we’re unwell is ‘Lord, where is my soul not prospering?’
