Have you ever wondered why sometimes when a certain season or month is approaching, you feel yourself getting sick with a particular illness? Why our bodies get sick actually aligns with our belief systems. More than sickness and diseases, our bodies get sick partly because we program ourselves to be that way. It’s the belief system that we set up ourselves as it is influenced by society. The challenge here is to take a look at your belief systems and be more conscious of yourself to understand how you feel the world.
Listen to the podcast here:
Why Do Our Bodies Get Sick?
I’ve noticed that a lot of our bodies are not feeling as awesome as they normally would, and I have a lot of people who are not feeling well. Most of you know that I’m licensed in medicine. I’m a national board-certified nurse practitioner. I have seen a lot of this throughout the years. It’s an interesting thing for me to watch at how different times of the year people buy into the belief system that that’s when people get the flu. It’s the flu season. It’s the allergy season. It’s the whatever season. It’s important for us to recognize that part of why we get illness is because we’re programmed to get ill. We’re programmed to think that at a certain time of the year we experience certain things in our body.
I was speaking to someone and she said that she had this belief system that she gets sick in the spring and in the fall or something like that. What was weird for me is I used to think of something very similar. I used to think sometime in the spring and then usually about October or November, I would start feeling I’d get sinus or whatever our default program is. Sinus infections for me are what usually will come up. For some people, it’s gut. For some people, it’s a sore throat or a strep throat. We are creating more of our experience by creating a pattern from a belief system. If we have a belief system that our bodies are going to be ill at a certain time of the year or because we do a certain thing like, “I can’t go out in the rain because I used to hear that when I was little that you can’t go out in the rain because that’s when you get sick.” I’d be dead by now because I live in the northwest. It’s a thought system. It’s important to recognize not only your own beliefs but what our society’s beliefs are. People say we get sick at certain times of the year. What are you going to do about not falling into that pattern?
Let’s talk about what aggravates our immune system. We only become ill when we are having a lower immune system. What do you think is the most important thing to do? Have a stronger immune system of course, but what causes our immune system to get low? Stress comes in so many different forms. Now, as I’m watching us as a collective, what we’re going through is a tremendous amount of data overload. We’re feeling overwhelmed. I know there’s a few, but I don’t know of anyone who is not feeling like, “I can’t keep up. There are not enough hours in the day. I have to do this and that.”We are creating more of our experience by creating a pattern from a belief system. Click To Tweet
One of the analogies I use is that we are like the CNN channel. When you turn it on, you’ve got all the data of all of the stocks, the gold prices, the Nasdaq thing and you’ve got somebody speaking. Then you have a little thing in the background about somebody else who’s doing whatever. There are a million, trillion data points that are hitting us at once. The truth is that’s happening on levels that we’re not even conscious of. That means that when we walk into a room or take it in, we have very sensitive immune systems and very sensitive experiences in our body that we are not conscious of them most of the time. Therefore, our body is being inundated with certain energies and these energies have a certain way of affecting us. If they’re high vibrating, then they might feel better. If they’re lower vibrating, it makes us feel a little heavier, maybe very heavy.
We must be conscious of what it is that’s going on with us. We know that we’ve got overwhelming data overload. We know that we have pressure at a very high level in our lives and these pressures have to do with survival. Maybe you’ve never thought of that, but I’m going to take you a little bit deeper. That is to recognize that we are in a place where we experience the whole world as a place of, “Am I okay? Am I not okay? If I’m okay, I feel good. If I’m not okay, I feel threatened that I’m not going to be able to move along in life and experience what it is that I want to experience.” It’s important to recognize that survival comes up like, “Do I have enough money? Am I going to have enough food?” This is a little extreme for some of you. It’s like, “Get over that,” but the truth is that when we get stressed, it’s from the subconscious thoughts that are going on.
There are some practical things that you can do. First on a body level, sleep more. If you’re like me, it’s like, “I’d love to do that but I don’t have time to sleep more. I have so many things to do.” You may be saying to yourself, “Who’s going to get the kids up? Who’s going to take care of this? How are they going to like it if I go to work being late because I decided to sleep more?” You have the ability to make your life be what it is that you want to do. Go to bed earlier or get more efficient with your time. Think about the things you are doing every day that you don’t have to do. What self-imposed limitations are you putting on yourself? This is a big one for me. I make up these deadlines and this increases my own personal stress level. It’s when I make up these deadlines and I’ve got to do this by this very moment. The truth is it’s not urgent. It might be important, but it’s not urgent.
When you look at your day and look at your life, are you doing things that could be put off, especially when you’re in a crunch? Think about that. The practical things mean that you reduce your stress level. You can reduce your stress level by doing the cycle of five breathing. It’s breathing in through your nose to the count of five. Hold it for the count of five and exhale through your mouth to the count of five. When you do that your body starts to calm down. Get into the habit of doing that when you’re starting to feel overloaded with all the things that are stressing you. The stress will not support your clarity one tiny bit. What it will do is lower your immune system, so your body will start to feel overloaded and more stressed, which is going to create all the bugs that are flying around the world.
There are a million, trillion of them and you have them in your body. What happens is we usually don’t get ill because our body’s immune system, our T cells are working very strongly. When we’re stressed they reduce and that’s when we start to take on stuff like the chills, the flu or all these things. There are components that go with this whole thing. It’s our beliefs and it’s society’s beliefs. It’s what we’ve bought into. It also has to do with what we’re doing physically. Are we resting enough? Are we overwhelming ourselves? Are we relaxing in the day even when we’re not sleeping? Are we watching what we eat? Are we eating strong, healthy foods? Are we eating junky processed foods because they will lower your immune system? If you are not exercising and moving the energy, then what occurs is that your body gets very sluggish. Exercise, movement, stretching increases the blood flow. What happens when you are increasing your blood flow? You are going to experience more oxygen which helps us feel stronger, so breathe in more deeply and move the energy, stretch and workout.
I did weightlifting to rocking music, so in between, we are moving our bodies. It makes us feel good. It raises our vibration and makes our muscles happy. Those are things that you can do. Make what you do fun. When you do that, your whole energy or whole vibration feels better. The higher the vibration, the stronger your immune system is going to be. Remember that your mindset is very important. Remember that what you’re eating, what you’re doing and what you’re thinking is very important. I am so appreciative of you all being with me.

I have a request for all of you. I am looking for a name of what to call these live videos. One person suggested, Ease Daily Dose of Life. You can come up with anything that you can think of and if you’ll write it in the comments, that would be great. You could private message me, but if you would do that, I would appreciate it because I’m open to your ideas about what it is that you think these could be named that would be general enough, supportive enough, and powerful enough to be able to bring people so they can get how important they are in the world, how important what they think in the world is, how important what they do in the world is, and from there we will be able to make a change that’s not only personal, but it will end up being global.
I know you want to be in the place where you love the life that you live and you love to be in an easy place with all the people that you are surrounded with. Comment or private message me, keep sharing and know that I am so appreciative of each and every one of you for being here, reading and making a difference in the world because of who you are. Until next time. Feel a hug.
