The mind and body are not two separate entities but they form an indivisible whole or we can say inseparable but distinguishable by mind for easy understanding.
The mind is a general term for a person that thinks, reasons, perceives, wills and feels.The mind has two distinctive characteristics-
- First mental functions, which have been distinguished by one the conscious mind and the other subconscious mind.
- Second, your subconscious mind is constantly responsible to the power of suggestion. In addition to your subconscious mind has complete control of the functions, conditions, and sensations of your body.
You receive conscious perception by means of your five physical senses and exercise control over the movement of your body and nerves in the brain are channel of your volitional and conscious mental action.
Humans have an absolute power to control over the information that enters through the five senses. You will get a response from your subconscious mind according to the nature of the thought or idea you have in your conscious mind.
Your subconscious mind may be compared to the soil, which will grow all kinds of seeds (thought), good or bad. The dominating thoughts, if it is a strong emotion (faith, fear, love and so on) or strong desire, that remain in the conscious mind (negative or positive) make their way to the subconscious mind and influence and empowers it.
Your subconscious mind reacts and responds to the nature of your thoughts.Your subconscious mind will do anything in order to obtain the object of the desire. When your conscious mind is full of fear, worry, and anxiety, the negative emotions are produced in your subconscious mind and as a result conscious mind crowded with a sense of panic, foreboding and despair. Your conscious mind is the captain of your ship, which represents your body, environment and all your affairs. Your subconscious mind takes the orders which is based upon what your conscious mind believes and accepts as true.
According to J.T.Kent- “Thinking and willing establishes a state in man that identifies the condition he is in.”
The law of action and reaction is universal. Your thought is action and the reaction is the automatic response of your subconscious mind to your thought.
In The Science of Homeopathy, George Vithoulkas explains that "The mental level is the most crucial level for the human being. It is the mental and spiritual content of a person which is the true essence of that person".
Samuel Hahnemann himself emphasized the importance of the mental and emotional state. In the Organon, aphorisms 210 and 211, he wrote, "In all cases of disease to be cured, the patient's emotional state should be noted as one of the most preeminent symptoms,"
Rajan Sankaran writes in The Spirit of Homeopathy that "the most marked difference between two individuals suffering from the same condition lies in their mental state and in their general symptoms" and that by basing his remedy choice on the mental state he has successfully.
According to J.T. Kent- “As are the will and understanding, so will be the external of man. As the life of man or as the will of man, so is the body of man, and as the two make one in this world, there is evolved from him an aura which is vicious in proportion to his departure from virtue and justice into evils.”
You are saturating your subconscious with the negative thoughts and it responds accordingly. So you are actually blocking your own good, as a result of bringing lack, limitation, and frustration into your life.When you set up obstacles in your conscious mind, you are denying the intelligence of your subconscious mind.
This causes mental and emotional congestion followed by sickness and neurotic tendencies. Whatever thoughts, beliefs, opinions, theories you engrave on your subconscious mind, you shall experience them as the objective manifestation of events, conditions and circumstances.
If you think negatively, destructively and viciously, these thoughts results in destructive emotions. Each mental state is associated with a positive or negative effect felt in the physical body. For example, the mental state of anxiety causes production of stress hormones.
"As water takes the shape of the pipe it flows through, the life principle in you flows through you according to the nature of your thoughts."
If your conscious mind preoccupied on obstacles, delays and difficulties, your subconscious mind responds accordingly. Thoughts of jealousy, fear, worry and anxiety brings mental and physical diseases of all kinds. All your frustration is due to unfulfilled desires.Therefore these two must balance, then there will be harmony and equilibrium. So to let the life principle flow through you rhythmically and harmoniously, the impression and the expression must be equal.
