The Emotional Issues Behind Your Auto-Immune Disease

Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?

I have been shocked by how many of my YOUNG, VIBRANT and DRIVEN followers are struggling with pain and illness on a regular basis! I believe we are seeing more and more disease, pain and sickness on a larger scale because of our mentality as a society.

If you are struggling with health issues—specifically autoimmune disease—I want you to keep reading. I believe I can help you change your perspective and heal from the inside out.

Symptoms of Autoimmune Disease

An autoimmune disease occurs when the body stops acting in a normal function and starts fighting itself. Some of the most common autoimmune diseases include:

  • Arthritis
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Hashimoto thyroiditis
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Celiac disease
  • Graves disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatic fever
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

The symptoms are very real and can be very uncomfortable. In some cases in can include body tissue degradation, abnormal growths, organ function issues, etc. You might also have more than one autoimmune health problem.

While there are a lot of different symptoms that are specific to the different autoimmune issues, here are three of the most common overarching symptoms.


Most autoimmune diseases result in discomfort and pain. Not all of them last all the time and some may have very specific triggers that lead to the pain. But, most autoimmune diseases cause chronic pain issues that return regularly and becomes a point of frustration in your life.

Lack of Energy

Your body is beaten down with a mistaken idea that it needs to fight itself instead of intruders. This leads to destroying healthy tissues and staying in a constant state of stress on a cellular level. So, it’s no wonder that autoimmune diseases lead to a lack of energy!

Invisible Disease

Many doctors are extremely frustrating to work within this space. You know something is wrong, but their tests aren’t showing anything measurable. Sometimes, people with autoimmune disease are treated as if they are faking it. It is VERY real.

Even if you get a diagnosis, few doctors have any answers for how to truly TREAT autoimmune disease. Their treatments and medications typically can’t help with autoimmune disease. In most cases, you need to follow a strict diet and change your mentality to heal yourself from autoimmune disease.

What Causes Autoimmune Disease?

There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to autoimmune disease. Most of the time, genetics gets blamed for the illness. While genetics likely play a role, personal circumstance and perspective also play a big part.

How Physical Conditions of Dis-Ease are Impacted by Emotions

I teach a lot about dis-ease in my book, “Mastering Affluence.” A lack of ease (or dis-ease) can be directly caused by your negative perspective and self-talk that starts to impact you at your very core. This energy helps attract like energy and create your reality.

I first read “You Can Heal Your Body, You Can Heal Your Life” by Louis Hay in the 1980s and she was a pioneer in this understanding.

You may find that you are able to heal without changing your thinking, only to later replace one condition with another. The limiting beliefs can be the cause of health issues and patterns of autoimmune disease. This means that pinpointing and correcting those limiting beliefs is the best way to cure the illness, starting deep within.

4 Common Limiting Beliefs and Emotional Themes that Feed into Autoimmune Disease

There are four common limiting beliefs I hear over and over that I want to touch on. Most of these come from a very early point in childhood. It’s really important to realize that you may have formed these limiting beliefs even if your parents were doing their best and cared deeply for you.

If you have any of these beliefs popping up, I highly recommend you join my Healing Center where I have some incredible plans to help remove that old hurt. I will help you catch the negative self-talk you don’t even realize you are doing and replace it with powerful positivity!

“I am not enough.”

Early in childhood, you can get the idea that you are not enough. This may come from your needs not being met (just the minimum provided). It might have occurred because your parents didn’t understand your Energy Type.

You came to the conclusion: I am not deserving of wellness.

Because of this, you don’t believe you deserve to feel good or live an affluent life. This belief keeps surfacing, making you lose faith in the good things you can have in this life. You are afraid to enjoy the good times and fully expect the bad times to be right around the corner.

You need to flip your internal mantra to: “I AM ENOUGH!”

This will include statements of “I have enough ______” and “I am worthy of _______.”

“It doesn’t work.”

If you kept trying to fit a very specific mold as a child and faced a lot of failure, then failure may become your internal expectation. You gave up as a child and started accepting that your best efforts won’t work.

You may try one thing or another, but when they didn’t fix your health issue, you decided you must be stuck with it. You stopped trying other solutions and your self-talk became resigned to the problems you are dealing with.

No matter how hard or how discouraging things seem, show up! In my own personal life, “I wake up! I get up! I SHOW up!” is something I refer back to a lot. It helped me get through my depression and it helped me get through COVID shutdowns.

Rather than let yourself default to believing your efforts aren’t enough, you need to turn on the mantra that they ARE enough and they WILL work.

You need to flip your internal mantra to: “I am SHOWING UP.”

“Everything is out of my control.”

So many of us feel like life just happens to us. We feel like we are reacting to some overarching story that might be directed by a higher power or pure chance. I fully believe that Creator God gave us the power of control over our lives, energy and reality—and He expects us to use it well!

Patterns of needing control or giving control away are signs that you aren’t in the right state of alignment with this power. Rather than creating the life you want, you try to control others or let them control you.

You will most likely see this play out in the toxic relationships you form. You will internally believe either, “I can only love you if I control everything,” or “you are controlling me is because of love.”

You need to flip your internal mantra to: “I am the CREATOR of my life.”

“I have to please others first.”

This is another tendency that could have developed because your parents may not have understood your energy type and tried to make you more like them. You learned from early on how to please your parents, teachers, coaches and friends.

You tend to create codependent relationships where one person is burdened and the other is needy.

You may have started to internalize, “I only get what I need if something is wrong with me.” And, that thinking can easily feed into a series of very real health problems.

You need to flip your internal mantra to: “I am healthy and well, and my needs are IMPORTANT.”
