from the part II of Concept of Health, happiness and Emotions
of the Mind:
The Mind is the very powerful organ of our body. It represents our
emotions, feelings, thoughts, memories, and intellect. Every good and bad feelings or sensations first come into mind and thereafter the physical body starts responding accordingly.
When the body is inflicted with pain, it is the mind that suffers.
is the most important component of mind. Memory teaches us an experience from which we base our reaction to a
The child who has been burnt by fire will be very careful of the next fire, he comes across. Similarly, the memory of the hot chilly will warn the diner to go slowly on the chilly in the next meal.
Therefore we can say that our present behavior is an outcome of
our past memories. Past memories of joy, contentment or
satisfaction sends positive vibrations to mind and
mind reciprocates happy moments, conversely past memories of
sorrow, regrets or agony generates negative vibrations and
mind reciprocates negative emotions like melancholy, insomnia
or hypertension. This means that, when we are in happy phase,
our body systems will be perfectly tuned to our mind (-emotionally
balanced state of mind) and they will work as per standard parameters
and will remain in harmony with each other so that their basic involuntary action will not
be altered or hampered. The entire working can be outlined in following diagram.
Our mind, with the help of past memories guides us at all the
times, simply because it possesses the exceptional thinking ability. Our
thinking ability makes us differ from animals.
Animals do not have a thinking ability as we have. Thinking ability in animals is restricted to the extent of their basic survival
needs; means hunger, sleep, sex, fear and defend. Their mind aptitude can only think of their basic fundamental needs. When they are hungry they eat. When they are tired, they sleep. The zebra does not plan the night before to avoid the cheetah the next
day! The deer has memory of the tiger eating up its fellow deer and therefore it is running away from the tiger as fast as it can. After escaping from the tiger the deer goes about doing its usual things with no plans about the next attack. While running away from the tiger, it does not worry whether it will succeed or not. It just runs. The animals do not worry about what will happen when the next drought hits them.
We are different from animals because we have the exceptional thinking mind, but
it does not mean that what our thinking mind
guides us is always correct. Why?
simply because our present thinking mind is an outcome of conflicts between
If our mind is finely tuned to our 'true-self' OR is least hampered by
obviously we will be able solve the personal problems by the use of our finest intellect. Only the 'true-self' can be creative and only the 'true-self' can
perceive real. The true-self is the inner, most sacred part of each person and
is a true representation of their soul. Personalized Bach essence
formulations tailored to unique needs of an individual, may help them in finely tuning
their soul to their 'true-self'. It will enhance their grasping potentials due to positive vibrations, ultimately
lead them towards
radiant health. Bach Flower essences work at vibrational level and mold
the innate nature of a person in a way to tune with their 'true-self'.
life journey, sometimes we may not be able to acquire
those things that we have dreamed before for wealth, position
or respect, which makes us unhappy. At such pathetic state of
mind, something like fear, phobia, uncertainty, doubting nature, irritability, anger or any other factor
could soar up, leaving us miserable. When those negative emotions dominates psyche; triggers emotional
imbalance. This "Emotional imbalance" travels via nerve paths to all parts of body or lodge in a certain organ to cause pain or
damage; like uncontrolled anger can raise blood pressure, remorsing past memories may lead to insomniac
or melancholic tendencies, depression may cause hyperacidity which may convert into stomach ulcer in
later stage. The doctor may prescribe some antiulcerants
(omeprazole, rannitidine etc.) for availing temporary
relief from ulcer,
however it is evident that such illness can only be removed by eliminating their
root cause from the core of the mind and not just treating their
"side effects" on the basis of the symptoms.
hearing a shocking news like a death of close relative or associate,
how would the mind react with such incident? What would happen? The
mind would react immediately. That reaction would set off negative vibrations into soul,
those negative vibrations would trigger several hormonal secretions.
Those secretions would help the body systems to cope with that event.
It would continue till the restoration of normal health.
Over the period of time, most of the people would get adjusted with
their circumstances -because it is our natural instinctive tendency to return to
normal life, so as to return to
our natural state of health-
still few of them could not be able to cope with
such incidents. Their mind would remain lingering in their past regrets and sorrows. They
would seem 'dead' in their present circumstances and their interest in life ahead
would be lost. For them, the mind would cause disharmony between body and soul. Their
innate nature would start emitting negative emotions
causing "emotional imbalance", this "Emotional imbalance"
-as mentioned above- would bring about an ailment or ill-health condition like loss of appetite, loss of interest,
In this way, our 'inner-self' repels or attracts the negative emotions at all the time.
When the 'Life-force'
gets weaken, it would make the body easily prone to various diseases. It is
indeed not necessary that the
health impediments -that invite negative emotions- would be of long lasting nature and
would necessarily affect the psyche for a longer period of
time, even the simplest thing can piss you off. Take for e.g. -If the
wallet is picked during journey, A. C. is not working in
running train. Such trivial
incidents are also capable of disturbing your normal phase of mind, which in turn
would disturb the functioning of Normal
by making you unhappy. Persistent unhappy phase of mind would provoke the disease-producing microbes leaving
your body unhealthy. Persistent negative emotions like jealousy, rivalry,
paranoid nature etc. would certainly trigger disturbances like
hypertension, sleeplessness, piles etc. at your body level. A jealousy between in-laws
would adversely affect both of them and may bring about an unhealthy conditions like blood pressure, insomnia, melancholy
such emotional imbalances continues over a longer period of time then
it may turn into a chronic disorder in future.
mind has memory of every event
that we've experienced in life. Our overall nature and
attitude towards life is an outcome of our emotions, our beliefs, our understanding of reality and our feelings expressed at good
or bad times. Invisible mind is controlled by invisible illusions, lies, as well as absolute truths, intuition and inner wisdom,
which makes one's personality. Often our pains, conflicts, unresolved issues in our lives
or even pleasures in excess (elations) can become a source of chronic uneasiness, blocked growth and even physical illness.
Such deeply embedded negativities
could become a core of many problems
that we experience in life, even though we seem to have a clear intellectual understanding of them. Many times,
those behavioral negativities resist healing until they are addressed and finally
purged from the core of our innate nature.
