Holistic wellness versus illness
WE’llness versus “I” – Illness, an interesting concept.
“We”llness is a team effort. A team of organs and daily routines, as well as well as a team of supporters that strengthen you continuously. When you are surrounded by negativity, that brings you down, and keep you from reaching your potential in life, work & home. It follows the concept that if you internalize negative experiences (the “I”), keeping them bottled up, then those negative thoughts and feelings get buried within the body. When you leave them buried, they can “eat away at you” causing imbalances in your health. This ties in to having emotions stored within certain organs such as anger in the liver and grief in the lungs.
When you surround yourself with a positive team (the “we” or “team”), it allows you to vent, share, and work through your emotions. Thus, not burying them. When you can do this in a healthy way, it allows you to own those emotions, so they don’t own you. It is a healthier way to process negative situations and turn them into a positive. Having a support team, their positivity and optimism will elevate your energy, spirits and motivation level. These people and influences will strengthen your sense of unity and belonging. It diminishes feelings of loneliness and abandonment, which are two key factors that play into the reasoning behind buried emotions. This in turn, elevates your immune system, and the mind and body’s ability to function at its best. When you can manage your emotions and negative situations in a healthy way, it allows you to own those emotions, so they don’t own you. It is a healthier way to process negative situations and turn them into a positive.
How boundaries play a role in positivity
Further, this process ties into establishing healthy boundaries, to avoid invasion of your boundaries. This a theme within the immune system and its functions. Invasion and internalization decrease immune functions, which further buries you into a negative and unhealthy state.
When you detox and release the invaders (includes negative thoughts and feelings, as well as environmental and food toxins), this keeps your immunity stronger and mind more positive. It is especially important to be surrounded with positive people that honor and strengthen your boundaries, rather than tear them down and disregard them.
