Section 5 - Physical conditions and spiritual components

Our daily thoughts, attitudes and emotions help to create our physical reality, for better or for worse.

Since we are spiritual as well as physical creatures, addressing both aspects of a condition can bring profound improvement to our lives.

The descriptions below address only the spiritual component of illness, injury and behaviours. They are not meant as a substitute for seeking medical attention. If the descriptions do not fit your situation, use them as a starting point and then work with your guide in meditation to gain deeper understanding.


See full list



ConditionSpiritual component
Absenteeism / Tardiness Unable or unwilling to meet responsibilities. Form of abandonment. It is easy to become addicted to not showing up for appointments or showing up late. This pattern can infuriate those who are relying on us and is the source of many of life’s difficulties. See dawdling
Spiritual effects: Unwilling or unable to follow through on commitments
Physical effects: Depression, hypothyroidism
Change the pattern: Meditate to find the reason for being disrespectful or for the desire to annoy people by behaving irresponsibly
Accident proneness Guilt or shame can make us unconsciously seek punishment, or wish to prove that we are not as good as everyone thinks, or that we ought to be punished for doing well if a loved one is a failure. This can manifest in physical as injury-causing accidents that often occur just before our performance is to be judged or tested (fear of failure/success). Injuries are a way to show that we are in pain and distress and in need of nurturing or sympathetic attention. See bruises
ADD / ADHD Too little or too much attention being given to the child. Neither extreme is beneficial to a child's healthy development
Addictions Physical result of the spiritual desire to avoid pain or run away from truth, from life, from responsibilities. Can be to a chemical substance like food, tobacco, drugs or alcohol, or to a behaviour. See abandonment, obsessive/compulsive behaviours.

Addictions begin as thoughts which in turn create behaviours, so they can be modified, and even, in certain cases, released completely. To bring about such dramatic change requires great strength, determination and commitment, but change is possible. Of course, until the root cause of the need for the behaviour has been recognized and released, the likelihood of recurrence exists. Very often, the root cause is the belief that "God must hate me" (see unconditional love). Excessive gambling can be caused by a chronic need to win (to prove that "God loves me").

Spiritual symptoms of advanced addictions vary from telling constant stories about how everybody has 'done me wrong' (whether true or not), to pathological lying, to using guilt trips to manipulate others and avoid making decisions
Adrenal glands
Acute adrenal failure
Addison's disease
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia
Cushing Syndrome
Primary adrenal insufficiency
Other infections

Secondary adrenal insufficiency
Represent our ability to regulate our reaction to emotional stress
Acute adrenal failure (Addisonian crisis) - Can occur when one learns that a cherished belief system is false
Addison's disease - Can occur if we habitually play victim whenever someone tries to hold us accountable for our words or actions. The alternative, accepting responsibility, is out of the question since we believe that doing so would be devastating
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia - Results from parent(s)' inability or unwillingness to provide the child with the spiritual necessities of life, like unconditional love, compassion, emotional support, etc.)
Cushing syndrome - Unable or unwilling to trust and just be at peace
Primary adrenal insufficiency when due to:

Other infections of the adrenal glands - Disappointing realization that we really have no control over what others think of us
  • Spread of cancer to the adrenal glands - Severe erosion of our faith in human decency after being on the receiving end of harsh criticism, even though we are extremely critical and judgmental. It is only all right for us to be honest
  • Tuberculosis - Belief that one is weak. Feeling at the mercy of those who are strong and in a position of power. Giving up on self's ability to survive. See HIV/AIDS

Secondary adrenal insufficiency if due to:
Allergens
Animals
Dust
Environment
Foods
Insect stings or bites
Semen
Specific individual
Animals - Fear of things that one cannot control. Angry that everyone else gets to do whatever they want (see pity parties)
Dust - Which person, behaviour or situation is a never-ending irritation in the family?
Environment - Physical manifestation of chronic fear of the unknown
Food - Physical result of an unresolved traumatic situation that one fears is bound to happen again
Insect stings or bites - Chronic fear of being an unsuspecting dupe; fear of things that one cannot control
Semen - Unrecognized or unresolved issue with one's mate. See infertility
Specific individual - Extreme emotional discomfort when a certain individual is near and believing that we absolutely must not, CANNOT EVER, reveal our true feelings about them. Our feelings may be positive or negative
Allergies
Allergic fungal sinusitis
Anaphylaxis
Angioedema
Seasonal hayfever
Represent an unspoken plea for help in dealing with an on-going traumatic situation
Allergic fungal sinusitis - Unable or unwilling to acknowledge to others that we have suffered an incredibly painful experience, and there are reminders of it everywhere, making us feel it will be impossible to forget. We have built a spiritual dam to prevent our tears from flowing
Anaphylaxis - Frustration with feeling that it is unsafe to share our true thoughts about the current troubling situation
Angioedema - Keeping our true emotional reactions secret but fearing that everyone will somehow know. See embarrassment, birth abnormalities
Seasonal hayfever - Who or what around us is so irritating that we are frustrated and/or furious and just want to cry? See anniversary illnesses
Ambiguous genitalia Can occur as a life lesson for those who may have - in a previous existence - made less-than-considerate choices for someone in their care who was fully dependent. See birth abnormalities and What is karma?
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), adult-onset Denying our chronic, desperate need to avoid discussing painful issues or sensitive subjects, yet yearning tobring them out into the open. The issue here is fighting with self over whether to discuss something that is important to us or to keep it hidden. Of course we all have reasons for wanting to avoid discussing some subjects; often it is because we think others will react poorly when we raise topics that they themselves wish to avoid.

This not knowing which topics are safe to discuss - the indecision - creates a push-pull effect on the body. Nerves and muscles are unconsciously tightened and relaxed at a furious pace, creating unimaginable strain on the systems. After many years of living with this pattern, damage occurs at cellular level. The body is eventually unable to cope and certain genes become affected, creating ALS.

Not everyone with this issue develops ALS. For those with the condition, the behaviour is severe, chronic and long-standing. It is not just one topic that is avoided - the indecision manifests in all choices of topics to share or avoid discussing. Those that are discussed that meet with negative responses or reactions cause us to judge, criticise and condemn ourselves for creating trouble. Those that are kept hidden remain in the thoughts creating further damage.

The challenge is to change the pattern, that is, to share and discuss what is important to us, in the knowledge that we cannot control how others react. Their reactions are just that - their reactions
Andropause Major physical life change that can create challenges to our self-esteem. Can show how well or poorly we adapt to change. Can help us better understand the challenges facing adolescents as they experience puberty, or the physical challenges facing females throughout life (see compassion). Combining hormonal treatments with meditating to understand the spiritual component of the physical issues arising, can reduce frequency and duration of symptoms. See hormones
Ankles

Arms Represent our willingness to work and/or to meet commitments. See broken bones
Arthritis
Ankles
Bone spurs
Feet
Fingers
Gout
Hips
Knees
Neck
Psoriatic

Spine
Over-compensating for a perceived weakness in a particular area. Can develop after a joint has been injured, but releasing anger and blame over the injury can help to prevent it from forming
Ankles - Chronic self-doubt
Bone spurs - Physical outcome of chronic lack of forgiveness, whether of self or others
Feet - Emotional pain from past experiences that has not yet been released (habitual lack of forgiveness for self and others). Every new emotional injury adds to the buildup

Neck - Over-compensating for a lack of belief in self
Psoriatic - Habitually alternating self-condemnation with self-indulgence. Pattern stems from one's caregiver(s) having been alternatingly, and unpredictably, too harsh/too loving. Our immune system becomes out of control as a result of not knowing whether to expect cruelty or kindness from those around us, and over-compensates with self-protection just in case. See psoriasis
Reactive - Concealing our true reaction to a threat to our self-esteem. Since symptoms do not usuallystart until from one to four weeks after the triggering event, it can be challenging to recall the thought. Try to recall what was happening at the time of the initial infection anyway, because the information will assist the healing process
Rheumatoid - Unable to accept that we are ok. Belief that we are bad or unworthy because after all, that is what we were raised to believe. Chronic griping about what everyone else isdoing, saying and/or thinking in the hope that people will see our goodness. Anger, guilt, shame, victim
Shoulder - Belief that we are indispensable, or belief that we are carrying a heavier load than everyone else (see bunions, bronchitis)
Spine (Ankylosing spondylitis) - Firmly held, fundamental belief about a specific subject that is based in untruth and illogic, and of course that means that everybody else's belief is wrong, wrong, wrong. See self-righteousness
Autism spectrum disorder Beyond the physical causes of this complex disorder, there are many spiritual components to be considered. Family history and behavioural patterns must be examined, along with the spiritual learning requirements of the family unit and those of the affected individual. Spiritual success is measured in the degree to which love manifests. See birth abnormalities, karma, reincarnation
Autoimmune diseases Holding self to excessively high standards, but wondering why since no one else does, and using this as an excuse to harshly criticise others. Includes vicious self-condemnation for the tiniest infraction of those standards. See HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, psoriasis

Encephalitis - Primary
Encephalitis - Secondary
Huntingtons disease
Meningitis
Sensory processing disorder
Synaesthesia - Mirror-touch
Synaesthesia - Visuo-spatial
Traumatic brain injury
The brain is the soul's wheelhouse during physical incarnation. It is the first place in the human body to react physically to our thoughts, attitudes and emotions. From there, signals are sent to the nerves in the spinal column and from there, to the area of the body that is affected by our thoughts, attitudes and emotions. Conditions that can arise:
Cancer - Firm belief in one’s own badness (chronic self-condemnation). Extreme regret over something we have done or not done, and this may set up a karmic situation
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (Mad cow disease) - Degenerative brain disorder resulting from a core belief based in untruth
  • Spontaneous (sporadic) - Firm belief in a false truth that developed as a result of our negative reaction(s) to life experiences. Any attempt by others to question or challenge the belief is met with firm (and possibly explosive) anger and refusal to consider other possibilities
  • Familial (inherited) - Firmly believing a false truth that our caregivers repeatedly reinforced in a negative way, that they believed was nurturing
  • Iatrogenic (contamination through medical procedures) - Belief that medicine alone is capable of, and is responsible for, repairing any damage sustained through life experiences
  • Variant (contamination through eating beef infected with the abnormal prion protein) - A crippling inacurate belief is intertwined with our identity
This disorder raises the question of how a cow with supposedly no thoughts or beliefs, could possibly develop a disease with a spiritual component of incorrect belief system(s). The answer, while it may seem ridiculous at this point in current understanding, is thus: cows have thoughts and emotions ... all living things have thoughts and emotions (not human thoughts, but thoughts nonetheless). This planet and all its magnificent expressions of intelligence in physical form are present to learn, and to teach, one another. For more information, see Why do we get sick / suffer injuries / have accidents?

Subtle form of torture that aims to keep the asker under control. See greed, lying, revenge, spite, birth abnormalities
Sounds like: "If you don't know, I'm not going to be the one tell you." "Wouldn't you like to know."
Change the pattern: If someone asks a question, tell the truth. Resist the urge to hold back certain details

Sensory processing disorder - Difficulty in accepting that one is in a physical body. The soul may have left the previous life experience in a traumatic way, or this may be the soul's first incarnation in human form
Synaesthesia - Mirror-touch - If from birth, karmic condition provided in accordance with the soul's need/desire to experience that all in physical form have feelings and experience pleasure and pain, not just self. If occurring later in life, results from the Universe cooperating with the soul's profound desire to feel
Synaesthesia - Visuo-spatial - Karmic condition enabled by the soul's desire to assist in building humanity's understanding of, and capacity of,  existence in physical form

Chronic disease According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, “Chronic diseases, also known as non-communicable diseases or NCDs, are diseases that are persistent and generally slow in progression which can be treated but not cured.” By the definition of the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, “a chronic disease is one lasting 3 months or more. Chronic diseases generally cannot be prevented by vaccines or cured by medication, nor do they just disappear.”

According to the Universal Intelligence, chronic disease results from unrecognized or unresolved traumatic events.

Congestive heart failure - Unable to withstand the pressures of pretending to be successful while feeling like a failure (see arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure)
Heart disease - “You’re breaking my heart” (guilt trip, martyr). Those with heart disease may be perceived to be heartless, or at the other end of the spectrum, selfless. Pattern of avoiding dealing with one's own problems in favour of focusing on matters beyond one's control
Heart problems in children can be a reflection of spiritual/emotional difficulties within the family unit.

Pet hoarding
Chronic, desperate emotional neediness and a stubborn refusal to allow anyone to meet it; instead choosing to meet one's own needs.

Belief that one has a terminal disease
Compulsive need to receive focused, sympathetic attention from an authority figure, to steal attention from others (see envy), to avoid responsibilities, to be in crisis, or to punish self by assuming that we have a serious or life-threatening disease so as to compensate for any success we may have.

Worry, worry, worry. See Munchausen's syndrom by proxy
Belief that one has (or may develop) a terminal disease - Obsessive thoughts that every twitch, itch, bump, lump or pain is a symptom of a deadly disorder.

See accident proneness, fear of death/dying, fear of invasion
I don't feel like it syndrome When given the opportunity to do something helpful or productive, we often use the old excuses of: I don’t feel like it. What we are really saying is, “No”. It is all about power and control, and doing as we have been asked can be seen as a sign of weakness. Saying “I don't feel like it” is the polite way of keeping control and feeling strong. The challenge is to do as we’ve been asked, even though we may not want to. Instead of telling ourselves that we are already doing enough, make that extra effort. Be prepared to work though, because once we get started, our mindset usually changes and enthusiasm sets in. Note that this pattern is not a manifestation of laziness

See herpes, sexually transmitted diseases (STD's), tuberculosis
Autoimmune disease - Holding self to excessively high standards, but wondering why since no one really cares
Autoimmune disorders - Our immune system becomes out of control due to not knowing whether to expect cruelty or kindness from those around us, and over-compensates with self-protection - just in case
Compromised - Chronic fear of being assaulted, whether verbally, emotionally or physically
Cytomegalovirus - Feeling like a victim of one's own caring and concern
Impotence Complex disorder caused by a combination of several physical and spiritual conditions. However, the root spiritual cause can be traced to a desire (whether recognized or not) to withhold pleasure, either from self or from one's partner. See spite
Infection Frustration that our desires are always being denied and belief that they will never be met
Bacterial versus Viral infections: The difference between bacterial and viral infections is that some bacterial infections can occur spontaneously. In such a case, the spiritual component is purely from within self and requires no input from the environment to manifest in physical. Communicable infections, whether bacterial or viral, are spread by contact with infected people or contaminated surfaces, food or water. With these, the spiritual component arises from within self but the infection requires input from the environment to manifest in physical
Sounds like: "I never get what I want" or "when is it going to be my turn?" See cellulitis, fungal infections, gangrene, HIV/AIDS, sepsis, tuberculosis, victim

  • to give ourselves the upper hand in a given situation
  • to attempt to hide from or escape consequences
  • to appear benevolent
  • fear of losing the approval of one who seems to be in control of a situation

We tell little white lies to protect ourselves or to spare someone’s feelings. Sounds like “No problem!” (even if there is a problem) or “Good job!” (even though it may not be satisfactory) or “You look great!” (even if the person actually does not).There are as many reasons for lying as there are people: low self-esteem, extreme guilt or shame over a traumatic experience, victim of chronic abuse, whether physical, sexual, emotional or verbal.

Watch Lie detector, a TED Talks presentation by Pamela Meyer.

Chronic - Making up stories in an attempt to hide or escape, or to appear benevolent
Pathological - Purposely weaving a web of lies around a kernel of truth to keep everyone wondering and guessing, so that one ALWAYS remains in control and at top-of-mind. When taken to the utter extreme, can become Pseudo Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy

Marfan syndrome Whether from birth or developing later in life, a karmic situation in which the affected person either experienced, or caused someone else to experience, what it is like to be at the complete mercy of someone with a complete lack of empathy or compassion. Their challenge now is to learn, at soul level, that all are equally worthy to be treated with dignity, respect, caring and compassion.
Me too syndrome We all know the pattern: We've just told our friend about our latest project. Friend says, "Oh, I've been going to do that for a long time." And then it starts. They go on and on, telling us all about why they haven't done it yet, or why they think it’s a great or horrible idea, or what happened when their friend did it. They ask us no questions and show no interest in what we’ve said, and they may even go on to completely change the subject. This is a common pattern in people who have a fear of being left out or forgotten. They simply cannot cope with not being the centre of attention, and they cannot still their thoughts long enough to pay attention to others. See narcissism, self-importance
What can we do about it? While we cannot make anyone else change - or even want to change - we can best help them, and ourselves, by expressing our feelings about their behaviour

Memory
Alzheimer's disease
Dementia
Forgetfulness
Remembering everything
Unable to forget
Alzheimer’s disease - Chronic self-deception. Habitual denial of having played any role in our negative experiences; hence a constant need to blame. Or a strong desire to make everyone believe that we have had no negative experiences in life, in other words, wanting to live in a fairy tale. Wanting to escape being held responsible
Dementia - Progressive inability to function within the boundaries of the lies we tell self and others about the type of person we are or were. See Alzheimer's disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease
Forgetfulness - Often used as an excuse for obsessive / compulsive checking and rechecking. This is not forgetfulness - it is avoidance of being in the moment. Habitually using forgetfulness as an excuse can contribute to the onset of dementia. Can also be a means of bringing extra attention to self, as a way of saying, "You're not important enough for me to bother remembering anything about you" or as a way to cover up one's mistakes or shortcomings
Remembering everything - Constantly reminding self of events, losses, experiences, victories, or hurts in case they're needed to gain the upper hand in arguments (see guilt trips), or to give one a sense of superiority
Unable to forget - Often triggered by traumatic events. See PTSD
Menopause Major physical life change that can create challenges to maintain our sense of self. Can show us how well or how poorly we adapt to change. Can help us better understand the challenges that face adolescents as they experience puberty (see compassion). Like the flu and the menstrual cycle, menopause is often used as an excuse when one needs a rest and yet is unable or unwilling to speak up for self. It is also used as an excuse to under-perform or to be 'bitchy'. Those who have severe problems with menopause may have a victim or martyr mentality. Pain or discomfort can be reduced, or even completely eliminated, by just saying "No" without feeling guilty. See hormones
Menstrual cycle
Adenomyosis
Endometriosis
Endometritis
Menorrhagia
Menometrorrhagia
Metrorrhagia
Missed periods
Polycystic overy syndrome
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder
Premenstrual syndrome
Uterine fibroids
Can represent recognition of our limitations, or can signify the start of a new cycle, a new way of life, or a new opportunity. Can also indicate a pattern of fighting any change suggested by others, a refusal to go with the flow, or a tendency to argue just for the sake of being disagreeable. The cycle can be a guaranteed week or two every month when we can blame our body instead of admitting that we have needs. Like the flu and menopause, this process is often used as an excuse to under-perform or to be mean. See pelvis, uterine fibroids, uterus.

Those who have painful cycles may have a victim or a martyr mentality. Pain, discomfort and other effects can be reduced, or even eliminated, by not allowing self the luxury of using this as an excuse. After all, the Universal Intelligence cooperates with our desires. Some say they have painful cycles even if they do not. This results from a desire to play on the sympathies of others, or to escape responsibilities

Issues that can arise
Adenomyosis - Unresolved pain and agony over one's childhood, and/or the children one has had or not had. Agonizing over the sort of parents one had or the sort of parent one has been
Endometriosis - Needing to control every little thing. Overly dependent on one's mate (co-dependent relationship). Holding onto a core belief system that is narrow-minded or out-dated (see infertility)
Endometritis - Unrecognized anger toward self and our part in the reproductive process. See miscarriage
Menorrhagia - Results from a legacy family pattern of cyclic emotional and/or physical abuse toward the family’s female members or children. This creates an unrecognized belief that life as a woman is all about suffering, with the body cooperating with the expectation. See premenstrual dysphoric disorder
Menometrorrhagia - Results from a legacy family pattern of cyclic, albeit unpredictable, emotional or physical violence toward the family’s female members or children. See nose bleeds
Metrorrhagia - Results from a legacy family pattern of cyclic, predictable, emotional or physical violence toward the family’s female members or children
Missed periods - Can be caused by pregnancy or breast-feeding, eating disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome, pelvic inflammatory disease (inner turmoil regarding one's creativity or choice of whether to have children), uterine fibroids, or premature ovarian failure (belief or fear that "God hates me because I have done nothing meaningful in my life" or an "I give up" attitude)

Polycystic overy syndrome - Deep concern that having a child will cause our loved ones to ignore us in favour of the child (fear of abandonment), or fear that the child will cause us no end of grief, as we think we did for our parents (self-condemnation). See obesity/overweight
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder - For some, menstruation is a thing to be dreaded. There can be no comfort because the next cycle is just around the corner, waiting to hurt us
Premenstrual syndrome - For some, the monthly cycle is a reminder of all that is wrong in their life. The weight of such a concern manifests as an increased emotional burden which in turn creates physical discomfort
Uterine fibroids - Represent stifled creativity along with a desire for a life-changing experience
Mental illness
Aggressive anxiety disorder
Aggressive passive behaviour

Passive Aggressive disorder
Reactive attachment disorder
Schizophrenia
Aggressive anxiety disorder - Pattern of lashing out at others, either physically or verbally, when feeling unable to control a situation. See intermittent explosive disorder, stress
Aggressive/passive behaviour - Obnoxious behaviour designed to force others into submission. This childish, abusive behaviour results from growing up in an extremely controlled household or an environment with no boundaries at all. The aggressive phase can manifest as shouting orders, criticisms or guilt trips, throwing temper tantrums, threatening physical or financial assault, or abandonment. When the victim submits and becomes docile, the offender then shows mercy by showering the victim with affection, warmth and praise, giving gifts or rewards and generally being sweet and attentive (passive phase)…until the next time. The passive phase lures the victim into a false sense of security, and can even create a guilty feeling for having ever doubted the aggressor
Spiritual effects: Pathological lying, greed, self-righteousness, distrust
Physical effects: High blood pressure, dental problems (can result in total tooth loss), laziness or hoarding
Change the pattern: If this behaviour is an issue for you, either as aggressor or as victim, visit Section 2 to begin your inner child revolution
Bi-polar disorder - Seemingly never-ending cycle of extreme self-approval and extreme self-hatred - usually in direct response to another's words or actions that have been taken as either a reward or a personal attack. Unable or unwilling to accept self as just another soul in human form, doing well at times and poorly at other times. Chronically unmet need to receive loving attention, and so doing all that we can to receive attention whenever possible by being either the very best or the very worst - at everything
Depressive phase - Occurs after a perceived failure and thinking "I give up. I'm useless and horrible and everybody hates me. I'm not perfect and everyone sees it. I can't bear the shame. "God hates me." “I hate me.”
Manic phase - Occurs after a perceived success and thinking “I can do anything and everything.” “The rules don't apply to me (arrogance).” "I don't care what God - or anyone else - thinks of me."

Borderline Personality Disorder - Profound sense that one was, is, and always will be, a failure. Belief that one is incapable of 'correct' thought or action. Often comes as a result of a child having every choice controlled by others or of having no one to provide guidance, in other words, no experience of what it's like to make correct and/or incorrect decisions in a safe learning environment. This can result in a nearly complete lack of self-trust, along with anger at the imposed control of others and fear of having that control removed (fear of abandonment)
Chronic confusion - Can be caused by habitual repetition of negative thoughts, or by believing the constant criticism from our caregivers or loved ones. Too many people to please
Change the pattern: Do the self-esteem exercise
Depression - Behavioural pattern with its basis in our self-worth and self-esteem. A wave of depression often occurs if we suspect that we have lost the approval of someone who is very important to us. If our sense of self is completely wrapped up in that individual, as can happen when living or working in co-dependent relationships, we feel we will lose our identity without their approval. We will do almost anything to cope with our sense of loss and deprivation. Usually this means doing any number of negative behaviours in the hope of getting that person to help us recover and buy back into the relationship. Then, we tell ourselves, everything will be ok again.

And it will be, for a little while. Until, almost from out of the blue, another experience will trigger another wave of self-hatred. Then we’re right back where we started … punishing and hurting self ... going on a binge of alcohol or drug usage, starving ourselves or overeating/purging, withholding communication, shopping for things we do not need with money we do not have, cutting ourselves until we bleed, contemplating or attempting suicide, stopping doing the things we truly love to do … oh, the list is endless.

There is another way to live, but it means changing how we relate to others, and more importantly, how we relate to ourselves. It means becoming aware of our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs and desires. If this pattern is hurting your quality of life, visit Section 1 and start gaining profound change.
Depression - postpartum - Fear of losing our identity, fear that we might be overshadowed by the child. In its extreme, can become Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy
Intermittent explosive disorder - Behaviour that we feel fully justified in maintaining. Used as a means of keeping control in any situation where we might lose the war. See aggressive/passive behaviour above
Multiple personality disorder - What it is not: It is not other souls inhabiting one's mind or body. What it is:
  • Behaviour done out of a profound need to protect self from the actions and/or opinions of others
  • Fear of revealing our true nature, and protecting self by hiding within various acting roles
  • Desire to "keep them guessing".
  • The benefits are multiple: Gives us a sense of always being in control, because since only "I" know the secret, others can never be sure with whom they're dealing. If someone expresses displeasure with the us, we can tell ourselves that it does not really matter because it was not really us that they have condemned
Spiritual effects: Gradual loss of desire or ability to recall our true self, unwillingness to confront the truth about one's motives, unstable self-esteem
Physical effects: ADD / ADHD, pathological lying
Change the pattern: Meditate to learn the initial reasons for choosing the behaviour

Narcissism - Belief that everything is all about Me, everyone is thinking about Me, that Me is always correct, and anyone who disagrees is a threat to be destroyed, shouted down or publicly ridiculed. Belief that it is not enough to win - everyone else has to lose. Chronic refusal to give others a chance to express their thoughts and feelings. The pattern often leads to isolation, as very few people want to be around someone who is unwilling to listen, share the spotlight or give credit to another; however, if the narcissist happens to hold a position of power or authority, many are only too eager to forego their personal needs and sell out in favour of self-promotion. See self-importance
Paranoia - Certain that everyone (all sentient beings and the Universe) and everything in the environment that has been perverted by humans, is plotting against Me and watching and waiting for Me to fail - to teach Me that I am powerless against them. My negative life experiences result because of them, not because of Me. The pattern can result from too little versus too much control by one's caregivers and/or positive versus negative attention, as well as parental failure to model balanced responsibility. See anxiety, avoidance, child abuse, fear, self-esteem, self-importance, self-righteousness
Passive/aggressive disorder - Unable or unwilling to stand up for self but resenting others' supposed lack of respect. Constant grumbling, griping and whining but unwilling to take responsibility for our role in any negative situation (victim)
Looks like: Withholding communication, abandonment, extremely slow to act or react, to speak, to move or to offer assistance (dawdling); chronic lateness (fear of commitment); chronic procrastination (avoidance), compulsive lying
Physical effects: Accident proneness, addictions, dental problems, headaches or migraines
Reactive attachment disorder - Results from a lack of healthy attachments with caregivers forming in early childhood, due to caregivers' being unable or unwilling to connect emotionally with the child - not the other way around. Can become a generational family pattern
Schizophrenia - Can result from the following habitual thought patterns and emotions: self-condemnation | guilt | shame | futile anger | distrust | distress | anxiety; along with a childhood filled with chaos, chronic emotional instability, trauma, and/or a lack of positive parental attention. Additionally, the condition may be a karmic requirement, e.g., needing to learn to feel compassion for those who are at the mercy of their caregivers, or who are not in control of their faculties or who lack self-determination
Miscarriage
Fetal health
Maternal health
Can be caused by fetal or maternal health conditions
Fetal health
  • Fetal failure may cause uterus infection (septic miscarriage)
  • Blighted ovum - situation in which the mother's stubbornly-held belief about self being unloved by God determines the embryo's failure
  • Intrauterine fetal demise - a soul's first entry, or re-entry after a traumatic prior life experience, into human form is done in gradually lengthening stages of time being spent in physical. The same soul may or may not return to this mother
  • Molar or partial molar pregnancy - paternal desire (unrecognized) to be the biggest and the best, at any cost

Maternal health
Money problems Related to a lack of self-worth and/or self-approval. Such beliefs can result from family behavioural patterns, which in effect say to the Universe that "I am not worthy to live in comfort" or "I deserve to suffer" or "I am a horrible person". These can be related to chronic guilt or shame, or feeling like a victim. Gaining money does not resolve the pattern unless the underlying thought patterns are recognized and resolved. If they are not, having money can actually create other self-destructive behaviours like addictions, eating disorders, hoarding
Change the pattern: Do the Guilt-buster and Self-esteem exercises in Section 9

Dry mouth - Chronic - Living with a constant low-grade fear
Dry mouth - Occasional - Knowing that one’s words are false and/ or purposely divisive and are likely to meet with disapproval
Multiple Sclerosis Deep need to be perfect - not so much to be a better person, but rather to make someone else see how hard we are trying to win that someone’s approval. Feeling overburdened and hopeless that the burden will ever be lifted, but unwilling to do anything to change it (see martyrdom)
Mumps Afraid of taking the next step, fear of failure or success
Munchausens Syndrome by Proxy
Pseudo Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy
Can affect anyone - male or female, adult or child. Complete failure to recognize that others have needs and feelings too. Martyr. Constant need for sympathetic attention. Self-importance, jealousy. Can cause a spouse to kill a pregnant mate or a child to kill a parent, sibling or pet
Pseudo Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy - This condition can appear in pathological liars when they make up lies about their loved ones, sometimes claiming that one of them has been hospitalized or even died. Why? To play on people's gullibility and sympathy, in the hopes of being excused from obligations and responsibilities, because after all, they have to attend a FUNERAL!

Dystonia - If from birth - Can be a reflection of the family's emotional environment. In this case, work to identify any "tense" situations at home. Such situations could be someone using silence as a punishment, or running away by using various substances or behaviours. After identifying the situations, start to re-pattern them. For example, leaving the room to end a conversation is a form of abandonment. You can help to re-pattern that behaviour by allowing there to be a consequence for it. Start by sharing how the behaviour makes you feel and encouraging verbal expression of feelings. See birth abnormalities
Dystonia - If it develops later in life - Physical manifestation of rigid thought patterns. Meditate to learn the reason for suppressing creativity and/or verbal expression

If unable to get going (for example unable to start a project), can be due to fear of failure or success, exerting control because of a desire to withhold action (see passive/aggressive). If unable to stay still, can be due to a belief that one MUST always be doing something productive, or else! See distrust
Muscular Dystrophy Legacy family pattern of holding faulty belief systems that prevent growth, forward motion and/or fluid movement. Inability to follow through on decisions and condemning self for it. Can result from extreme over- or under-protective parenting. See birth abnormalities

Obsessive/Compulsive Behaviours Inability to cope with life without doing certain routines when certain things have happened, or a seemingly uncontrollable urge to repeat a behaviour, whether or not it is acted out. Often done in response to repression or suppression of strong emotions, to gain some measure of control when we feel like a victim.

The behaviours often end up creating the exact situation we want to avoid
Change the pattern: Meditate to identify and resolve the root cause
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Hiding our anguish and futile rage over being unable to change certain situations creates a chronic need to do something, anything, to divert our attention from them.

Look to the affected body part for information about the underlying issue. See accident proneness, self-mutilation, signals
Addiction to pain - If unable to express our emotional needs, telling others that we are feeling physical pain is the only way to get some much-needed attention. This can create an addition to pain.

Can arise after observing or experiencing terrifying events over which we had no control. Somehow we feel that we should have been able to prevent them, or at least been able to fix them or prevent them from ever happening again.

Spiritual effects: If we feel we are responsible, we can take on guilt. If we feel others are responsible, we can take on a victim mentality and become alternately passive or aggressive. See unable to forget

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Failure of our caregivers / loved ones to acknowledge our pain after an injury, and to allow us time to heal.

Side effects Unwanted reactions to the things that are supposed to help us be healthy can arise as a result of our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, belief systems and desires about any or all of the following:
  • That which has been prescribed or given as treatment
  • The person who gave us the prescription or treatment
  • Our desire to stay sick or to get better
  • Our beliefs about our ability to heal
  • Our beliefs about whether we can be helped
  • Our desire or lack thereof to be cooperative

These are just a few of the possibilities that can affect the results of treatments / medications. However, once we have recognized the spiritual components of the cause of our side effect(s), we can start healing from within by really resolving the issue. Just think how our healing could improve by doing this sort of work
Change the pattern: Recognize which of the above issues applies and meditate to find and resolve the root cause

Physical expression of our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, belief systems and desires. Some of the speech patterns below have become quite common, but since we seldom hear what we ourselves are saying, or how we’re saying it, we may not realize that we’re sabotaging ourselves
Babbling - Deep need to be in the limelight. Chronic fear that if given the opportunity, someone else might say what we are trying to avoid hearing (guilt, shame). Chatter can be used as a defense against a perceived challenge. Can be a need to gossip. Unable or unwilling to express emotions. Can be a lack of concern or interest in others (see arrogance, narcissism, self-importance)
Baby talk (in adults) - Wanting to avoid being taken seriously or held responsible, or can be used as an excuse to under-perform. Trying to stay in childhood. Form of control and manipulation
Close talker - Sharing special information or secrets to make others feel that they are our only trusted confidant, and that we have a special bond. The recipient then feels, possibly mistakenly, that they have a trusted friend who would never cause harm. Can be the foundation of unhealthy relationships. Trying to be in control. Anger, aggression, fear
Delayed speech - Early sign of co-dependent relationship(s) within a family
Falsetto - Although not a disorder as such, speaking in a high, seemingly happy tone of voice can belie a deep level of emotional pain or discomfort. Martyrs often use this tone of voice (see blame, guilt trips, victim)
Fast talker - Guilt, shame. Wanting to hide. Fear of being caught and held responsible
Hoarse - Reining in one's voice (can lead to more serious conditions like strep throat, bronchitis, etc.). Wanting to withhold communication about something important for fear of what might happen
Laryngitis - Withholding communication as a punishment either to self or another. See spite
Lisp - Trying to sound non-threatening. Wanting to remain in childhood
Loud talker - “LISTEN TO ME, LOOK AT ME!"

Silent treatment - Withholding communication as a punishment. Also called cold shoulder. Childish, manipulative behaviour designed to punish, hurt or infuriate someone who has offended us (see blame, guilt trips)
Slow talker - Note: This does not apply to those who have sustained, or are recovering from, brain injuries. Strong desire to hold the attention of one's audience so as to control the content or direction of a conversation. Can be a way to anger the listener. Can come from low self-esteem or self-importance, or an inability to think clearly (see chronic confusion)
Smooth talker - Pretending to be in control of everything yet fearing being found out to be a fraud
Soft talker - Trying to come across as non-threatening, or a manoeuvre designed to force one’s audience into silent submission

Tourette syndrome - Desperate need to divert attention from someone or something. Shame, embarrassment
Up-talking - Can come from a desire to appear cheerful, positive and non-threatening (see martyr).

It can manipulate the listener into giving her or his approval after every sentence
Vocal cord polyps - Condemning self for getting carried away with the emotions of a situation and saying too much, too loudly
Whining - Childish way to let others know that we're unhappy about something. Designed to get them to pity us and do whatever is needed to make the situation better - so we won't have to do it ourselves. See manipulation
Whispering - Wanting to make someone think that they are a confidante, an ally. See close talker, soft talker
Notes: 1) Although not a disorder as such, if one emigrates to a land where a different language is spoken and refuses to learn that new language, co-dependent relationships can result. 2) Check out WikiHow's information page that teaches how to practice speaking well
Spinal column
Arthritis
Degenerative disc disease
Dislocation
Scoliosis
Spina bifida
Spinal cord injury
Spinal stenosis
Subluxation
Vertebrae
The brain is the first place in the human body to react physically to our thoughts, attitudes and emotions. From there, signals are sent to the nerves in the spinal column and from there, to the area of the body that is affected by our thoughts, attitudes and emotions. Vertebral damage occurs when a specific spiritual tolerance threshold has been breached. See back, bones, skeleton, vertebrae
Arthritis - Fundamental belief that is based in untruth and illogic (and of course that means that everybody else's belief is wrong, wrong, wrong)
Degenerative disc disease - Gradual (or sudden) loss of one's ability to handle traumatic events. Each new difficult experience creates more and more pain and confirms the belief that life will never get better. See affected vertebrae for more information
Dislocation - Lack of spiritual stability and faith that we are doing what is right for us. See affected vertebrae for more information
Scoliosis - Fear of the next attack from a loved one and wanting to avoid it, yet not wanting the loved one to know that we are afraid of them and their power
Spina bifida - Karmic situation in which the affected person either experienced brutal physical harm at the hands of a loved one and was unable or unwilling to forgive, or caused a family member to experience same. See birth abnormalities
Spinal cord injury - See vertebrae, belief systems, What is karma?, Why do we get sick ...?
Spinal stenosis - Impaired ability to feel compassion and a lack of desire to seek understanding about the reasons for it. See arthritis
Subluxation - Not knowing which way to turn or where to look for guidance or assistance. See affected vertebrae for more information
Vertebrae - see individual vertebrae
Stage fright Paralysing condition arising from fear of failure or of success, fear of looking stupid, lack of confidence in the message to be given . See anxiety
Physical effects: Dry mouth, nausea, sweaty palms, tunnel vision
Change the pattern: Spiritually: Meditate to find and resolve the underlying cause of the fear(s). Physically: Prepare for the presentation by practicing as many times as needed to instill confidence in the message. Join a public speaking group or visit Wikihow to hone presentation skills

Peptic ulcer
Polyps
Represents our ability to use the spiritual food that we feed ourselves to nurture and sustain us
Peptic ulcer - Allowing negative thoughts, attitudes and emotions to eat away at, and destroy, self. See grief, spite
Polyps - Trying to hold onto every little bit of affection and/or kindness we receive due to fear that “they” will eventually figure out that we are not really worthy of receiving it
Suicide Often thought to be an act of sorrow or desperation, suicide is much more complex than that. It can be a form of abandonment or an act of sacrifice. Threatening suicide can be a form of control or spite and manipulation (if you don't give me what I want, I'll kill myself). It is often committed when one's partner in a co-dependent relationship breaks free (either through choice or by passing away). The person really does not see that life is possible without the partner, or that anyone else will "put up with me". The urge to commit suicide can arise when one suddenly recognizes having made a huge mistake, and feels it is unforgivable or impossible to repair the damage.

There are many forms of suicide and some are quicker than others, but they all have one thing in common: the individual loses any opportunity to change her or his life experience if the attempt is successful. Often, there is more to be learned by the individual from the failure. For example, many become maimed or crippled from a failed suicide attempt, and the opportunity for profound spiritual advancement then exists. God sees the Universal Truth of all of the circumstances that helped to create the suicidal tendency for the individual, and it is the Universal Intelligence who decides when it is time for an individual to come home. The individual is never judged, criticised or condemned by God. The individual is simply loved, unconditionally, by God and his messengers
