Some of the present strategic pull and talk on the health of the people, challenges all and sundry.

Our today's Health Matter reads:

"In this modern world, there is stress or tension. In other words, there is work pressure, anxiety, irritation, anger and hurt feelings, along with bullying and harassment. People under great stress radiate stress energy to surrounding people. Consciously or subconsciously, they transfer a great bulk of their stress energy by being nasty and rude to others.

Prolonged stress, tension and other lower emotions leads adverse affects on the physical body as gastric ulcer, heart ailments, migraine headache, damaged kidneys, depression and other chronic ailments".

That is why the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights provides that every individual shall have the right to enjoy the best attainable state of physical and mental health. And those State parties to the Charter shall take the necessary measures to protect the health of their people and to ensure that they receive medical attention when they are sick.

It has also stated that all people shall be equal; they shall enjoy the same respect and shall have the same rights. Nothing shall justify the domination of a people by another.
"By observing one's thoughts and emotions a person can recognise if he/she is predominantly having lower emotions or higher emotions. Love, peace, joy, happiness, sharing, caring, being sensitive, and offering donations are some of the higher emotions.

 In an enlightening seminar that I attended, the speaker asked the audience to perform an interesting experiment; it took approximately 2 minutes. This two minutes exercise made us reflect how healthy we are emotionally? I would like to elaborate about this exercise. If you are interested in practicing, please make yourself free from your duties and find a place where you will not be disturbed.

During the first minute recall happy and enjoyable events that you have experienced. These experiences could be written on a sheet of paper. At the end of 1 minute please count how many happy incidents you are able to recall.

Now for one minute, recall unhappy and hurtful incidents. At the end of 1 minute please count how many incidents you are able to recall.

Were you able to recall more happy incidents, which could bring a smile on your face, or were you able to recall more unhappy incidents?

In the seminar many noticed that, they were able to recall more unhappy incidents. They were predominantly having lower emotions.

According to Master Choa the Founder of Pranic Healing, some severe ailments are emotional in origin. Some patients have so much deep-seated hurt or resentment towards certain person(s). The rate of healing would be much faster if the patient consciously exerts an effort to forgive those who may have actually or imaginarily hurt him or her.

According to medical experts more than 80 percent of chronic problems is psychological in origin. To prevent chronic ailment it is therefore needed to lead an emotionally healthy life. The act of forgiving is therapeutic and is necessary for good health.

Pranic Healing sessions and Twin heart Meditation on Peace, can aid one to have a better emotional attitude and inner peace.
