Human Mind and Astrology
The Human mind is a set of cognitive faculties that enables consciousness, perception, thinking, judgment and memory. This characterises the Human Being.
There are many theories about the mind. Some ancient religious civilizations refer to it as the connection between the body and the soul. Many religions and philosophies believe that the human soul is an immaterial essence which is combined with the physical body and both constitutes the human individual. It is also believed that the immaterial essence can exist without the physical body, considering that the soul is immortal.
Thousands of thoughts come into the human mind during its awakened state as well as during the hours of sleep. Thoughts that come into a human mind can be defined by just two words, either positive or negative. While positive thoughts bring joy, happiness and wellbeing. Negative thoughts; only bring worries, insecurity and fear. All these negativities can have a profound effect upon the human mind, leading to mental stress.
Your mind and body are powerful allies. How you think can affect how you feel. And how you feel can affect your thinking. An example of this mind-body connection is how your body responds to stress. Constant worry and stress over jobs, finances, or other problems can cause tense muscles, pain, headaches, and stomach problems. It may also lead to high blood pressure or other serious problems. On the other hand, constant pain or a health problem like heart disease can affect your emotions. You might become depressed, anxious, and stressed, which could affect how well you treat, manage, or cope with your illness. But your mind can have a positive effect on your health, too. Having a positive outlook on life might help you better handle pain or stress and stay healthier than someone who is less hopeful.
How you handle stress has an effect on your health. When you're stressed or anxious, your body reacts as if it is under attack. Your body releases hormones that speed up your heart rate and breathing, increase blood pressure, and make your muscles tense. This physical reaction is called the fight-or-flight stress response. This stress reaction is good if you need to avoid an accident or other danger. But if you constantly feel stressed, your body's natural fight-or-flight response lasts too long and your blood pressure may stay high. This is bad for your heart. Stress can also affect your emotions. It can make you feel moody, tense, upset, or depressed.
But when you are able to relax your mind and body, your body stops producing the hormones that create stress. The feelings of stress ease, and you return to a state of calm, both physically and mentally. Your brain produces substances that can improve your health. These substances include endorphins, which are natural painkillers, and gamma globulin, which strengthens your immune system. Research shows that what your brain produces depends in part on your thoughts, feelings, and expectations. If you're sick but you have hope and a positive attitude and you believe that you'll get better, your brain is likely to produce chemicals that will boost your body's healing power. Negative thoughts and emotions can keep your brain from producing some of the chemicals that help your body heal. But this doesn't mean you should blame yourself for getting sick or feeling down about a health problem. Some illnesses are beyond your control. But your thoughts and state of mind are resources you can use to get better.
Astrology in a way is a great tool for the wellness of the mind, body and soul of a Human Being.
Astrology can reveal one's life purpose, one's ascension path, and provide tremendous clarity on all matters of love, family, health, career, finance, education, experience, and of course, spirit. It offers solutions to life's most difficult, seemingly hopeless challenges as well as revealing pathways to manifesting abundance and success at spectacular levels. It empowers individuals by helping them understand their inherent strengths and potentials that they may embrace and develop them with vigor. Unlike anything else, it imbues clarity, purpose, hope, and optimism for the spiritual seekers of the world that their lives become illuminated and that they may become a vibrant, unique, yet integral part of the human family. There is nothing hidden under the heavens and nothing that one can't understand through the luminous lens of Astrology.
Astrology can greatly help in reducing the negative thoughts that occur in the human mind due to strong feelings of sadness, stress or anxiety given the fact that all these are the result of something called The fear of the unknown. Consulting an astrologer can help you overcome this fear of the unknown. The fear of the unknown can be best described as, situations or connected incidents that a human being cannot understand, but can only experience, as and when they happen. The experiences can both be positive but at times very negative in nature, leading to a total mental imbalance.
Astrology can guide a person according to the forecast of the stars and what the stars have to tell us, about ourselves. It helps us to overcome our insecurities, negative thoughts, anxieties and that fear of the unknown. Astrology prepares us mentally and spiritually, to cope up with certain situations that might not be favorable but are also not totally catastrophic and with the right advice and techniques from an Astrologer, can enable us not only to over come the adverse situations but also to convert them in our favour.
When the thoughts of a human being are positive it changes our attitude towards life. A positive attitude helps you cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worries and negative thinking. If you adopt it as a way of life, it would bring constructive changes into your life, and makes us happier, brighter and more successful. With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic, and expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing. A positive attitude leads to happiness and success and can change your whole life. If you look at the bright side of life, your whole life becomes filled with light. This light affects not only you and the way you look at the world, but it also affects your environment and the people around you. Hence the entire human body gets connected positively, through a peaceful mind to a healthy body and eventually to an enlightened soul.
