How To Boost Your Immune System
Continued from yesterday…
Jeremiah, another spiritual writer of old, suggests that no one can understand the heart because it’s deceitful. We ourselves cannot even know why we act the way we do. The original translation of the text suggests that the heart has been trampled upon because it contains footprints. Jeremiah implies that external voices and forces have shaped our unconscious sense of self.
Emotional scars from the past have affected us unwittingly. Whether others made us feel inferior, inadequate, or incompetent, what they did or said left debilitating marks on our self-worth and self-identity. Which is why humanity is weak, feeble, and even sick, according to Jeremiah.
Solomon also suggested that the heart as your unconscious self-perception is so central to your current reality that even your health is established there. “A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body.” Another poetic proverb suggests, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”
Written thousands of years ago, they were onto something that science is just now discovering. When you feel good about yourself, remain happy, and live with less stress, your immune system improves and our bodies are healthier.
