In order to maintain good health and well being, we are obliged to follow the Laws of Nature. These laws are universally valid, without exception. Although they may appear to be simple logic, or even blindingly obvious at times, it is remarkable how many of us choose to stray away from and even ignore these laws completely. Let’s have a look at these Laws of Nature and how we can apply them to our own health and healing.
The Law of Reciprocal Action is the fact that every action, every thought, every process will have its repercussions on all other actions, thoughts and processes. To put it more simply, we reap what we sow, or, to be blunt, what goes around comes around. On a physical level, we could say that a diet consisting of primarily junk and processed foods will have a direct repercussion on our long term physical health. This seems quite obvious.
In my case when I was ill, the doctors prescribed many surgical interventions and strong medications. These, unfortunately were poisons for me. I soon discovered that each new medication and intervention created a negative knock-on effect within my body, giving secondary complications and some very unpleasant side effects. This too is the Law of Reciprocal Action.
This law is not exclusive to the physical level, however, but concerns body, mind and spirit. Therefore, constant dwelling on fearful thoughts and negative emotions will certainly not produce a light and optimistic nature, and may even attract the realisation of your fears and the reinforcement of your negative emotions. We will come to the Law of Attraction a little later.
The Law of Movement states that all living things must keep in motion to stay alive. The whole of the Cosmos is in constant motion, from the solar systems right down to the cells in our own bodies. If we cease to move a part of our body after an accident or injury, after a certain time the process of atrophy will set in. We all know the importance of regular exercise and have been warned of the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle, and yet our modern way of living has never been more sedentary. The less we move, the more it becomes a problem for our physical and mental health, and spending most of our time seated and staring at computer screens is incredibly detrimental to our health and well being.
The Law of Balance seems so obvious, and yet our lifestyles seem to be increasingly out of balance on every level. For example, work-life balance seems to be almost impossible to achieve these days. The demands placed on us at work and our own resilience and resistance to these demands are increasingly at odds. Burn out and mental health issues, even amongst young people at the start of their careers, are on the rise. What little leisure time we do have is also out of balance. Many of us have lost regular contact with nature and the natural world, and all that it offers us for healing and inner well being. In our fast paced world we often prefer a session at the gym to a long walk in nature, and equally time spent on social media rather than quiet time alone with a good book. As with all of these Natural Laws, the Law of Balance applies to the Whole person – body, mind and spirit.
The Law of Attraction of Homogenous Species is a law we can easily relate to; “like attracts like”. This is easily explained with our relationships and the people we attract to ourselves, and it also applies to both health and healing treatments. No one treatment or therapy will suit everyone. There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach to healing. In my own case I had an acute physical aversion to the pharmaceutical drugs I was prescribed by my specialists. (Opposites repel). This was in stark contrast to the affinity that I had to the natural forms of healing that I embarked upon later. If we learn to truly listen to the messages that our body sends us, we can discover what resonates for our own unique health and well being.
Equally this Law of Attraction of Homogenous Species applies to our thoughts and emotions. A light and happy person will have predominantly light and happy thoughts and will attract other light and happy people like a beacon. “Birds of a feather flock together”. If we focus on what we truly want, using our thoughts, words and deeds to reinforce this, provided that it resonates with our true, authentic vibration, we will most likely manifest it into reality. We need to be consciously aware of this Law in relation to every aspect of our lives and ourselves.
These Laws of Nature are also Laws of Health and we ignore them at our peril. Physical and mental health problems are on the rise and a simple prescription drug won’t be enough to compensate for a lack of balance and harmony within these Natural Laws.
Chronic stress, obesity, lack of physical activity and work-life balance are causing even young people in their teens and early twenties to develop health problems. The more common maladies of our modern age, which include burn-out, chronic fatigue, depression, OCD, digestive problems and anxiety to name just a few, come as a direct consequence of these important Laws of Nature being ignored.
