Illness is caused by an imbalance in the body. Are you naturally inspired about your life? Do you consciously take care of your health and well-being? When you wake up in the morning, what are your first thoughts? How do you spend your days? If money, freedom and health were no object, how would you spend your days? Do you ever feel powerful and vital? What is a feeling of power and vitality like? What is a generic, mundane life like? Is that you? Are you a big consumer of pop culture entertainment and useless material goods like home décor? One thing is certain, your life is lived alone in your head therefore it's up to you. You create your own attitudes therefore your own biochemistry as I discuss elsewhere. Joy breeds the release of more neurotransmitters in your head that give you greater joy while depression depresses your biochemistry even more. The bottom line to a full, powerful life is to what extent are you naturally inspired?
