Biography Becomes Biology

I have been reading Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss. There are three basic principles. This is the first one the second one is Personal Power is Necessary for Health and the third one is You Alone Can Help Yourself Heal.
Biography Becomes Biology

According to energy medicine, we are all living history books. Our bodies contain our histories - every chapter, line, and verse of every event and relationship in our lives. As our lives unfold, our biological health becomes a living, breathing biographical statement that conveys our strengths, weaknesses, hopes, and fears.

Every thought you have had has traveled through your biological system and activated a physiological response. Some thoughts are like depth charges, causing a reaction throughout the body. Some thoughts are more subtle, and still others are unconscious. Many are meaningless and pass through the body like wind through a screen.

All our thoughts, regardless of their content, first enter our systems as energy. Those that carry emotional, mental, psychological, or spiritual energy produce biological responses that are then stored in our cellular memory. In this way our biographies are woven into our biological systems, gradually, slowly, every day.

Accepting the idea that every part of your life - from your physical history to your relationships to every attitude, opinion, and belief you carry inside yourself - affects your biological makeup is only part of the healing process, however. You also have to move from the mental level into the physical level, into your body, to feel the truth viscerally and cellularly and believe it wholly.

It is very easy to learn something new and apply that knowledge only casually. The idea that biography creates biology implies that we participate to some degree in the creation of illness. But - and this is a crucial point - we must not abuse this truth by blaming our selves for becoming ill. Illnesses develop as a consequence of behavioral patterns and attitudes that we do not realize are biologically toxic until they have already become so.

Energy is power, and transmitting energy into the past by dwelling on painful events drains power from your present-day body and can lead to illness. Power is essential for healing and for maintaining health. Attitudes that generate a feeling of powerlessness not only lead to low self-esteem, but also deplete the physical body of energy and weaken overall health.
