Know Your Body Part 2: Spiritual Meaning Of Autoimmune Diseases

An Autoimmune Disease is a condition where the immune system attacks itself rather than foreign bodies such as bacteria and viruses.

Living with an autoimmune condition can be frustrating, however when you learn about the energetics behind autoimmune diseases it can help you take better care of yourself.

Autoimmune diseases remain a mystery. No one knows why some people get them. Doctors consider it to be caused by genetics, food, and stress. And although there is no specific cure for autoimmune diseases, various treatments and lifestyle changes can help lessen the pain and suffering caused by them.

Let’s break down the Meanings based on the Symptoms and possible causes of Autoimmune Disease.

1 – Long-Term Stress

If you have been living in a stressful situation for a long time, or have unprocessed trauma and abuse (probably from childhood), this can result in taxing the body’s defence system and affect the nervous system. When we don’t have successful stress management strategies, the stress gets stuck in our bodies and attacks the nervous System. You may want to ask yourself:

– What are your stress management strategies and are they working for you?
– Do you feel safe, calm, and relaxed in your own energy?

2 – The Body Attacking Itself

We read, earlier, that autoimmune disorder means the body is attacking itself. Consider asking yourself the following questions to understand why this could by happening:

– Do you put others first and totally discard your own needs and feelings?
– Are you rejecting parts of yourself that you feel are not worthy and should be punished, suppressed, or made to disappear (Shadow Self)?
– Is there am experience or memory that haunts you? Perhaps your immune system is trying to release the guilt, shame, memory, and stagnant energy of a past experience?

3 – Inflammation and Heat

Inflammation can be helpful as it helps heat up the body and kill foreign bodies. However, when the body turns on itself, it can be very painful. And discomfort that can feel self-perpetuating.

Energetically, inflammation is related to emotions of anger. Anger is a mask for several underlying emotions: do you feel unsafe and use anger to protect yourself? Are your boundaries being crossed?

When you consistently ignore or suppress your anger, it has nowhere to turn but inward.

Consider these questions if you are dealing with an Inflammation type of autoimmune disease:

– What is your relationship with your anger?
– Has your anger been protecting you or helping you get your needs met?
– Do you feel you can safely express your anger in your current work/family/life situation?
– Do you feel your needs are generally met?
– Are your boundaries generally respected?
– Is an autoimmune flare-up the only time you are forced to attend to your own needs?
– Is there and positive outcome from your flare-up, eg: allows you to shut down, slow down, process emotions, or care for the needs of your body and mind?

If the information resonated with you, and you found yourself deeply thinking and pondering over the questions related to the different types of autoimmune diseases, then know that you are NOT to blame in any way for being ill. However, you may be able to use this insight to consider caring for your emotional and spiritual self more often and in combination with other treatments to support your body, mind, and spirit.
