"Sickness Is a Defence against the Truth": Reading the Messages of the Body

The Body, with all of its "complaints", "sicknesses" and "dis-eases", enacts the thoughts and messages of the mind. As such, it is both insightful and healing to "read" the body's language and communication.

We can take our experiences of chakras and what it is that blocks their energy (whether of this lifetime or another) into reading our own bodies' communications which is present, even in the moment. Where did the headache start? Why did you just cut your finger? Why are you prone to digestive disorders, arthritis or whatever it is? Even why have you experienced injury from an accident which is, metaphysically, "no accident"?

ACIM states in Lesson 136 "Sickness Is a Defence against the Truth". In this lesson it states that "like all defences, it (sickness) is an insane device for self-deception." "Healing will flash across your open mind as peace and truth arise to take the place of war and vain imaginings."

The body is an outward expression of inner thoughts and energy. Recognising this can help you in the process of healing i.e. of becoming whole.
