Your personal bank account

Your personal bank account

Physical diseases, ailments, imbalances and disharmonies are directly related to emotional disturbances. When we allow toxic overload to overcome our life it will manifests as symptoms which, when ignored long enough, will become disease.

We are each made up of four bodies, spiritual, first and foremost, mental, emotional and physical. Think of each of these bodies as being a bank account in which you can make deposits or suffer withdrawals. Each account starts out every day with zero dollars, and based on our daily activities and the nurturing of each body, we are able to add to our account.

The actions that allow us to add to our bank accounts are prayer, meditation and time spent focusing on God, mindful stimulation, growth and awareness, healthy life giving food and fluid intake, exercise, love, happiness, nurturing relationships with ourselves and others, pleasurable and rewarding work and play, and a vocabulary of kind and positive words emanating from you and to you.

Let’s say that each of these will give you a dollar a day. They will feel so good in your life that you won’t need any more than that. So, you eat three good meals a day, pray twice, attend a job you are passionate about, exercise for 30 minutes, praise people all day, love and value yourself daily, and play (hobby) once a day. You just put at least $10 in your account. Times that by 365 and then by 85 years. You have banked 310,250 dollars and that is based minimally.

Now, negative actions affect the system at least 10 times more. So we have to take out $10 for every negative action. Let’s say you never pray or give thanks, eat fast food two times a day, add in a candy bar and an ice cream sundae, feel devalued by your work all day, sit in front of the TV all night, never pick up a stimulating book or try to learn anything new, don’t allow yourself to laugh or have fun, argue with your spouse, yell at your children or offer no acts of kindness or praise to yourself or others. We have just caused ourselves a withdrawal of $130 by these 13 acts. Which again, times that by 365 days and then by 85 years. Your lifetime of withdrawals has cost you $4,033,250. Whew!!! That is a devastating loss.

Where do you suppose that deficit will show up in your life? Well, it begins to show up in your four bodies, and when one is completely bankrupt it has to withdraw from another to compensate for the loss. Over time, they will all bankrupt, and you will be left withering away, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.

As I have stated, you must add 10 times more positive to your life and in each of your accounts just to maintain a balance. If you want to come out ahead in your accounts, you must strive to leave the negative behaviors and relationships out of your life and replace them with positive actions and relationships.

Listed below are areas of the physical body and what is needed to support the system and also the reasons in which the systems can become weary. Look at each representation and see if any correlate to your own personal illnesses or imbalances. If you recognize and identify with any them, then I urge you to seek out healing in those specific areas.
