It’s not necessary to pit the physical real vs spiritual realm in this world today. We have to understand that we are citizens of two worlds and that wholistic living is the key to healing, problem solving and more. The spiritual realm or the spiritual world is important to understand and study because that is the aspect of us that we will take with us when we transition from this earth. The physical realm (or material world) must also be studied because we also experience things physically considering we were given a physical vessel to use as a platform to show who we are spiritually and leave our imprint here in the 3rd dimension.
When you experience a disease or sickness, it is not a matter of simply taking drugs to cure your condition. You have to be willing to tap into and develop yourself both in the spiritual realm and physical realm. Meditation, affirmations, traveling, reading books on the science of spirituality further help develop your knowledge and awareness on spiritual awakenings, the spirit world and beyond. Getting a consistent amount of exercising, proper rest, eating clean whole foods as much as possible all assist your efforts to maintain a healthy physical body that allows you to be productive here on earth.
