Does the US Insurance System Contribute to Increased Illness and Disease?

Are we paying into a system that's making us sick?

by Sarah Petruno, Shamana

Let’s talk about the power of prayer.

Millions of people, worldwide, believe in the the power of prayer:

That is, their well wishes and positive intention have the ability to heal and help people out of difficult situations.

Medical miracle after medical miracle has been routinely attributed to prayer and divine intervention.

Most churches have prayer circles, where groups of individuals get together and send prayer to individuals who are suffering. And their positive energy heals.

These circles are known to work, otherwise, people would have stopped participating long ago.

When people join together in prayer, they direct large amounts of positive energy and intention towards the idea that whoever they are praying for will experience healing and relief from suffering.

It’s a beautiful thing that this happens. Love, energy and intention all poured into the healing of another person.

Now, let’s consider the converse scenario.

Imagine that a group of people got together and decided to pour their energy, thoughts, and intention into the idea that someone would experience sickness.

Enter the US health insurance system.

We believe that US health insurance system exists for good reasons and to provide support to people who are in need of healing and wouldn’t have the money to access it otherwise.

Through contribution to the medical insurance system, millions of americans are pouring energy and intention, in the form of thousands of dollars per year per family, into the belief that something bad is going to happen to someone.

This is billions of dollars per year - all matter (including monetary bills) is a form of energy - and this energy is directed at the idea that illness, tragedy, and disease is going to strike someone.

It’s like a prayer circle, but focusing the intent of illness happening.

Think about that for a second.


That’s a whole lotta focused energy on the idea that dis-ease is going to happen to someone.

Now, take into consideration the rate of chronic illness in the US as compared to other developed nations whom do not have a similar system of out-of-pocket paid insurance.

It’s commonly known that rates of disease and illness have been exponentially climbing in this country, in correlation with many things, one of which is the growth of the health insurance monster.

People that pray know that when you focus your prayer for something, it happens.

When you focus your energy on something for a long time, it does tend to happen.

The United States has built a system that demands that people focus lots of energy into a machine that exists on the premise that you are going to get sick.

Does the US insurance system contribute to increased illness and disease?

My theory says yes.


What can you do about it?

1. Choose to stop paying into the system and pay bills as you need to

This is perhaps the strongest step you can take to protect your family by removing your energy from the ‘something bad will happen to me’ system. However, it requires an immense trust in yourself and your own ability to take care of your health. All of us have an innate power to heal ourselves - and our bodies are designed to self heal when you give them the chance (and the proper fuel required) to do their best job.

2. Focus your energy on facilitating healing, rather than eventual sickness.

Eating organic, GMO free, more fruits and veggies, less processed foods, engaging in exercise, massage, acupuncture, and therapeutic self-healing spiritual methods like the courses I offer on this website are all great ways to start shifting your focus to wellness, rather than illness.

3. Support organizations who are working to reform healthcare the right way

Find an organization that you trust that supports the movement to switch to a universal, pay as you go, health care system and donate your time, money, or intentions to their efforts.


What you water, grows. When we shift our collective intentions to manifesting wellness, it’s more likely to happen.
