Amazing Five Benefits of Spiritual Healing
With the advancement of science, modern medicine has become the mainstream go-to solution for most illnesses and diseases. Whether one is suffering from a simple common cold or a complex case of cancer, science has provided us with a plethora of options to choose from as we respond to such.
Moving forward, such methods have proved themselves to be greatly beneficial. By addressing the key issues of the disease and the sickness, pharmaceutical medicines have become the golden standard. Thus, we know that most families have their own set of medicine boxes in their house, our first-aid kits when they travel.
Given the reputation established by modern medicine, it has cemented itself as the authority. But is it the only option that we have?
Exploring the secluded civilizations, for instance, will show that there are ‘alternative’ options. Because they are not exposed to the advancement of the sciences, they rely on their own unique ways of addressing these problems. For instance, when someone experiences fever, they rely on herbal medicine, thinking that these leaves have properties which can address the issue.
Spiritual Healing complimenting the process
To complement the whole process, these individuals are usually portrayed to include ancient chants that will aid in the curation. By incorporating the power of spiritual healing together with alternative medicine, the patients are expected to be cured in due time.
Given the two examples above, we can see that there is a glaring contrast between the methods used. While modern medicine approaches diseases using science and technology, alternative medicine is often known to solve this problem by way of nature and spirituality. Why so?
Approaching diseases using these ancient methods follows a different type of philosophy. By doing a holistic approach using natural ways, spirituality addresses not only the disease but the host, which is the human body. As such, here are five benefits of doing spiritual healing for physical and mental diseases.
1. Spiritual Healing inspires/motivates people
In making use of spiritual ways to resolve one’s problems, you will eventually realize that you are effectively motivating yourself to begin the healing process. Why so?
Given the different approach that it takes, spiritual healing aims to cleanse the mind. Meaning, it doesn’t only seek to address the illness but also the host of the illness. By doing this, spiritual healing creates an avenue which is sustainable instead of responsive to the situation. Thus, when one is healed spiritually, they are also inspired and motivated, given that the positive energies of the universe enter them along the way.
2. It also normalizes blood pressure
While some won’t believe it, spiritual healing does have calming properties. Meaning, as you perform your chosen method, what’s common with it is it attempts to reach to your soul/consciousness. For instance, doing the ways of Ayurveda means that you will employ healing powers to the body with the hopes of reaching the soul.
Naturally, the by-product of this exercise is the normalization of the blood pressure. As we are calmed down by the whole process, we can relax. Unlike when we’re angry at someone, doing spiritual healing certainly brings good for us.
3. Leads to better sleep
Connected to the previous point, the sheer benefits of relaxation through spiritual healing also helps us even to the point when our consciousness is not active. During sleep, our body is essentially turned off. As proved by science, this is the time where we can rest and recuperate with the body performing the natural healing process.
However, when we are bothered by a lot of things, having a proper sleep can be quite troublesome. When we’re too attached to the things that we have to do, we carry them over even in our own homes instead of leaving them at the office.
By doing spiritual healing, we will learn to detach from such, giving ourselves enough space to do what it must.
4. Helps relieve physical pain
Surprisingly, spiritual healing is also known to address physical pain. As some would say, pain is in the mind. Someone who is suffering from pain, for instance, does so because certain chemicals are being released by the brain, telling us that we are in pain.
But by way of spiritual healing, this can also be addressed. Given that there are certain forms of such that addresses a holistic control over the body, pain can no longer influence the practitioner. For instance, we can see this in cases of monks who seem to employ higher levels of concentration.
5. Supports the immune system
Finally, spiritual healing is known to support the immune system. By creating a body that is both healthy in mind and spirit, you are also promoting an ideal condition for it. Meaning, you are not letting your body go into depression or illness because you know that it is not only moved by its functions but also by its owner.
As such, you have a stronger immune system to fight off diseases. Instead of emitting a negative vibe to your body, you are lively and positive, something that is crucial both in an out.
Thus, the way to go is to see how spiritual exercises can also affect your physiology. By seeing its effects on others, you can convince and believe that such indeed can have a positive effect on you. Instead of dismissing it as mere pseudoscience, you can use it as an effective resource to face life’s challenges!
