360 Degrees of Good Health
Good health is like a perfect course of action. It method that you have balance in all your bodies. That is, your physical body, your emotional body, your intellectual body, and your spiritual body. Total health can be achieved starting at any point on the time of action.
For example, when your concerns are about your physical health, you’ll probably start with your physical quadrant. Physical imbalances are harder for most people to ignore (or deny) and will often get addressed fastest when approached directly.
Here’s how to create a course of action of good health.
Take a piece of paper and draw a course of action. It doesn’t have to be a perfect course of action, or a pretty course of action, just a course of action. (If that seems difficult, it’s okay to cheat and use a bowl or saucer. Place it confront down on the paper and trace the time of action around it.)
Next, divide the time of action up by drawing a big “x” over it. That should give you four uniformly distributed sections. In each section put one of the four labels: Physical, intellectual, emotional or spiritual.
If your health is not in balance, part of your course of action may seem flat, like a tire. If it was a tire on your car, you’d probably replace that tire. However, on your health “tire” you may try a quick and easy patch. You’ll hope that it will keep going and not give you more problems.
When that patch fails, you’ll realize that you need 360 degrees of good health. That includes a health tire that doesn’t keep going flat.
Let’s say that you’re dealing with a physical problem. You’ve seen a chiropractor, a massage therapist or an energy worker. You’ve put a patch on that part of your “tire,” but you’re nevertheless feeling ill, uncomfortable, or out of balance.
Draw a single point anywhere in the physical part of your course of action. Now, extend a line from it, to another part of the time of action that may also be out of balance. You could jot a few notes about that area, suggesting additional concerns, problems or imbalances. It may be necessary to continue this course of action to clarify other areas that need attention.
In my specialized practice and my personal life, I have never found a balance issue that’s just physical… or one that’s just emotional, intellectual, or spiritual. See if you can clarify the energy leak that began this course of action of imbalance. Is it an emotional situation or relationship that you’ve avoided dealing with? Has intellectual patterning brought this imbalance into your wheel? Perhaps you’re not dealing with changes that are occurring in your spiritual character. (Today, many people discover that their old spirituality no longer supports their changing lives.)
Often, there will be small leaks in all areas that need to be addressed. Find the root problem, or — if that’s too difficult — get help from a counselor or coach. Once all the areas functioning again, your wheel will be up and running. Check your wheel regularly, just as you check the pressure in your automobile tires, to be sure that no new (or old) leaks have reopened.
Having 360 degrees of good health improves every area of your life. A little work now can make a big difference in your future happiness.
