The Link Between The Body And The Soul

Each and every year, more and more doctors, psychologists, and psychotherapists go beyond their standard learnings and expand their field of work.

Regardless if they do it through their therapy sessions, publications, or online articles, they blend the “soul’s energy” or “consciousness” concepts with their professional practice.

And they do so without being frightened by the unseen.

But it wasn’t always like this.

Not long ago, most professionals were quite reluctant to explore these ideas, let alone apply them to their work.

Modern science is fairly clear that our emotions and feelings are linked to brain activity. Anything else is boxed in the pseudoscience corner.

While this has truth to it and can be helpful, it still leaves a lot of unanswered questions on the table. This is because there are so many instances when your symptoms emerge from an “unknown cause.”

Today’s medical field specializes in alleviating the symptoms – therefore, the root cause is often overlooked.

But could this be an incomplete approach?

Could we see beyond this mountain of knowledge and focus more on what triggered that imbalance?

For example:

When we’re upset, our stomach aches.

When we engage in an unpleasant conversation, we may get a headache.

Maybe all these negative thoughts and behaviors are part of the reason we get sick.


Just maybe…

A better approach would be to use modern medicine to alleviate the symptoms while constantly asking where the imbalance originated from.

The unfortunate/fortunate reality is that this is work you have to do with yourself.

And it’s important because if you don’t address the root cause, you’ll fail to understand why the illness initially occurred. This will make you ignore future behavior, and the symptoms most likely will reaper.

For millennia this topic was explored by ancient philosophers from India, Egypt, and Greece.

Aristotle, Plato, and other famous philosophers tried to bring a new perspective on the connection between the body and the soul.

In fact, Aristotle named the soul “psyche” and believed it was an integral part of our physical body and the essence of any living creature.

Still, there’s no question that the knowledge we’ve gained from studying human behavior and the brain is quite impressive.

We’ve come a long way from the days when people thought that mental illness and other ailments were caused by demonic possession.

But there are two main facts I recommend you take into account:

  • Emotions are indeed linked to the brain, but in the sense that the brain reacts to the impulses of that emotion and filters its quality through the cortex;
  • The brain cannot be solely responsible for generating emotions as they are felt through specific regions of the body and present on a vertical axis;

Allow me to further clarify this second point with a few examples:

  1. When you feel scared, the first body region that reacts is your abdominal area, often known as “having butterflies in your stomach.” This happens because the solar plexus chakra’s energetic field becomes stimulated to protect the body;
  2. When you feel love, the heart area responds by stimulating the heart chakra. If you are physically attracted to someone, you are able to sense this in your lower abdominal area, corresponding to your sacral and root chakras;

There are countless examples, but the point is that our emotions are felt within an energetic vertical axis that goes from the crown chakra, located at the top of our head, all the way down to our root chakra, located at the base of our spine.

This region holds the primary chakras and our soul’s energy.

NOTE: The soul’s energy is spread throughout the body and concentrated within the heart area.

What Generates Our Emotions

My experience and knowledge have taught me that the elements that enable emotions to exist are the soul and chakras.

Each feeling has a different vibration level and becomes present in the body area it resonates with. We then express it through the corresponding chakra.

But here’s the thing.

If negative thoughts can be detrimental to our health, high-vibrational emotions have the power to heal us at all levels.

We cannot live without negative influences, but we can certainly control the amount we’re exposed to. Constantly working to balance our emotions towards the positive side of the spectrum can lead to a major shift in our lives.

The physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual layers are and will always be interconnected.

We function as a whole, and each component plays its role.

Therefore, when we experience an emotion, it’s not just the soul or one chakra that’s affected. The whole system is involved in the process.

How To Cleanse Your Soul And Chakras

All the above leads to a simple conclusion:

Cleansing your chakras and balancing your emotions should be a priority if you want to live a healthy and happy life.

When symptoms occur, it means that the imbalance is already there. The work you do with yourself by bringing the subconscious information into the conscious spectrum will help reveal the behavior that led to that specific condition.

​Reiki, meditations, and other spiritual practices can definitely help. They are tools you can use to set the process in motion and guide you along the way.

But regardless of the option you choose, the goal is the same:

  • You want to release yourself from old and harmful patterns. This includes anger, self-judgment, sadness, resentment, and so on;
  • The idea is not to forget the emotions and experiences that have hurt you but to understand, forgive, and let go. Don’t live in the past. Try and understand why they became present and what behavior triggered them. With time and practice, you’ll learn how to replace that behavior with a new healthy one;
  • Changing your daily approach from negative to positive will help attract the people and events that are aligned with your vibration level;
  • When you choose to let go of the past and focus on the present moment, the soul is able to heal itself. This is how positive emotions are born;
  • Cleansing your chakras allows stagnant energy to flow freely and effortlessly through your system. This helps prevent energy blockages that can lead to physical symptoms;

You can think of the chakra system as a river. The water will flow smoothly if it’s free from debris, stones, and other obstacles. The same principle applies to the energy movement within your body.

That’s why I constantly like to highlight the importance of “knowing what you are healing.” It might take some time, you can even feel it’s going nowhere, but once everything clicks, the benefits are immense.

So stop and reflect on your behavior. Become aware of what actions triggered certain emotions and what thoughts led to specific situations.

This will help you understand your patterns, break free from them, and focus on creating new healthy habits.
