What you balance on your fork predicts more about your health than the lines on your hands.
Are you killing your family with kindness?
I met a manufacturer of insulin recently who said: more people on this planet die each day from overeating than from starvation.
This may sound shocking and unbelievable (my first reaction) but actually its true.
Most illnesses and deaths are self inflicted through misinformation.
The problem is, with so much conflicting information out there, how do we know what’s good and what isn’t?
And, even more confusing: What’s good for one isn’t necessarily good for another! Which is why one should never force children to eat their food. It could well be good for you but toxic for them.
So how can you tell what’s good for you and what isn’t?
The body knows. You just have to find a way to ask it.
The most effective way I’ve ever come across is “Gansheitliche kinesiology” this is a system developed in
Switzerland that allows the body to choose solutions across a broad range of techniques, but any simple form of tuning into the body and asking should work.
Can hand analysis diagnose illness?
I steer away from health diagnosis. Even though your hands are an accurate mirror of how your body, mind an spirit interact, hand analysis is designed to solve emotional health issues (relationship and life meaning, purpose and career) rather than physical health. Even though all are interrelated.
“Your biology reflects your biography” Carolyn Myss
Many people have made the study of physical health, and how spirit and emotions impact on it, a life work.
For example, Norm Schealy and Carolyn Myss. Follow your inner wisdom to find the right system for you.
Richard Moss says there are three spiritual teachers that we learn from.
One is the body.
Sooner or later this is a teacher we all must meet.
“the body will humiliate every idea you have of yourself” until you see that you are not your body.
More than anything else, the body brings us into the present, which is where we connect with the divine.
If you would like to learn how to manage deep-rooted emotions, that illness stirs up, or vice versa, then hand analysis can help you understand the broader picture. You can manage your emotions very effectively using EFT but then you won’t necessarily understand the dynamics of what keeps triggering you. The combination of the two together is very effective.
The body as a portal
Many spiritual people totally ignore or neglect the body but it’s how we connect with the divine.
A daily practice such as tai chi or yoga or dance helps you do this.
Transcending the body
The person who has made this study his life work is Michael Murphy, author of The Future of the Body.
I find this subject fascinating.
Our health is our most precious possession. Take good care of yours.
