The above model could also be explained by the scientific paper called “the wisdom of the body, published by Dr. Gary E. R. Schwartz – Professor of psychology and psychiatry at Yale University from mid seventies to the late eighties. In his work, Dr. Schwartz explained the complex system of bio feedback in our bodies and he even went to assign the same process to every element in the universe. His work was inspired by Harvard professor – Dr. Walter B. Cannon and his book “The Wisdom of the Body”. Every element in our universe from large, small, simple or complex must have free information flow and energy circulation from within in order to be healthy, remain whole and most importantly evolve into its greater forms. In his work, Dr. Schwartz and his colleagues have proposed that there are five steps to achieving wholeness and health: attention, connection, self-regulation, order and ease. They have explained that attention is experiencing the energy flow in your body and between your body and your environment. This awareness whether it is at conscious or unconscious level (experiencing energy and information circulation in your body) promotes connection not only within your body, but also between your body and your environment. Connection enables self-regulation. As your body is very sophisticated biological system, so the full connection will allow for proper self control at a cellular level. Self-regulation will in turn promote order. This is created by the feeling of wholeness, fulfilment and internal beauty, which was made possible by organisational powers of connections allowing self-regulation. In those circumstances, the order is achieved with ease. When everything is connected properly and every cell in the body is allowed to express itself correctly, the self-regulation process can take place effortlessly. The process of health and wellness flows freely.
Dr. Schwartz has stated that reverse of this order is true and that there are also five steps to achieving disintegration and disease: disattention, disconnection, disregulation, disorder and disease. In other words, if you disattend your body (ignore its basic needs and flow of energy/information) this creates a disconnection within your body and between your body and the environment, thus promoting disregulation in the body, which would be seen as system disorder and be experienced as a disease.
In the last couple of years, science has managed to get better understanding of the matrix explained above and in particular the intricate link between the mind and the body and that the brain uses images to command the body. In this complex relationship, the body represents the physical state of your mind and thought processes. This means that the state of your health and your overall appearance demonstrates your prevailing thought processes and emotional states.
If you don’t like how you look and what you habitually do right now, maybe it is the time for you to question everything and start looking for alternative ways in which you can improve the quality of your life. The best way to start this process is to embark on the journey of self discovery, which will enable you to fully grasp all aspects of your being for more fulfilled and congruent life.
