The Healing Law of Giving

This title is the same as an article by Christiane Northrup, MD. You have probably seen her on PBS a time or two if you watch that sort of thing. She is author of Womens' Bodies, Womens' Wisdom. She wrote a wonderful article about giving and why it is good for your health.

Below is a citation from her article:

Because of the seamless connection between our bodies, our thoughts and our surroundings, you can actually achieve health in your physical body by giving away something of value. Think about this carefully. though it seems this can't be true, it is true. Thoughts tend to become their physical equivalents. Thoughts that are resentful, critical, self-centered, and bitter create congestion. When you believe that your doctor charges too much, that wealthy people are ripping you off, or that it's too expensive to eat healthy, you're thinking thoughts that increase congestion. Ponder (Catherine Ponder) points out that unhealthy people are often self-centered people who clutch their health problems to them for dear life ! Giving helps them to think about others in a way that is very therapeutic, helping to free both their minds and bodies.

This article was printed in The Well Being Journal. I highly recommend this journal and the cost is not bad. It is a great source for natural healing information. If you would like a reprint of the article on The Healing Law of Giving please let me know and I will fax to you.

Hope you have a great weekend.

I like your write up on this and it is also in line with what the scriptures have to say about giving: "give and it shall be given..." It is by the very act of giving that we get rid of the congestion and open ourselves up to all kinds of possibilities. When we become ill in some way, be it physically, emotionally or spiritually, we find ourselves withdrawing, closing up and tending to our wounds. Though necessary for a time to gain strength and health again, if done too long, it can cause all kinds of even further unhealthy habits. Everyone's time to heal is different, so there is not need for judgement here. But even in the healing process there is room for kind deeds, kind words and a loving heart that reaches out to others.

Thanks for this gentle reminder!

Really great blog! I noticed a mention about rheumatoid arthritis medication . I thought you might be interested to hear that both my parents and several of their friends have had problems with arthritis and we have been very lucky to have come across Bioflow. They are sold at rheumatoid arthritis medication and they have been worth every penny. They don't seem to work for everyone but they have helped reduce the pain in my parents arthritis so that they almost don't notice it any longer. They'd still be taking painkillers if it wasn't for wearing a Bioflow on their wrist

I bought the book "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" today by Chrstiane Northrup, MD. Just looking through it, I know this will be very helpful and insightful as well. She has some pretty good material out on Mother/Dauther relationships as well.
