How Mental Illness Arises
Mental illness can affect anyone – even famous, successful celebrities have suffered from it. A common contributing factor appears to be how one manages one’s inner state (emotions and thoughts).
From experience, we’ve seen that most cases of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, other mental/emotional issues arise from not receiving adequate emotional support during childhood. Statistics also confirm that 50% of mental health disorders start before the age of 14.
When a person doesn’t receive the emotional support they need as a child or young adult, or feels that they cannot match up to what is expected of them, it can lead to them feeling vulnerable, inadequate and rejected. They carry these experiences with them through life, and they help to embed their beliefs and assumptions about themselves, and life, and what they believe others think of them. These thoughts, beliefs, emotions and fears become stored in their subconscious mind, and continue to influence the way they experience life and the world around them. They may trigger unhelpful ways of thinking and reacting – without them realising why. E.g. a child who was compared to siblings may continue to believe, “I’m not good enough.”
Anxiety, fear, depression, self-esteem concerns all arise from such negative thoughts that imprison one in negative responses and feelings.
Although we tend to believe only what we can perceive with our physical senses, quantum physics is indicating that all matter, including ourselves, is vibrational energy – and can therefore be affected by other vibrational energies. (healingtheplanet.net/mym-and-science/)
The brain and entire nervous system (responsible for coordinating all body functions) is based on electrical charges moving throughout the body. Every thought and emotion generates electrical activity in the brain, which translate into images, forms, symbols, imagery and language that the mind can understand. Any disturbance in this is likely to disrupt normal body functions, and alter mood and behaviour. Traumatic emotions/ thoughts which one resists become suppressed as energy forms – hence one experiences memory.
When there is a blockage in the body’s circulatory system, that part of the body malfunctions. Similarly, when there is a disruption in the body’s bio energy, that part of the body malfunctions. This is the underlying cause of many disorders and diseases.
