Shall we play a game? "What do my emotions have to do with if I get injured from, say, getting hit by a car?" This kind of question is common (and very sensible) when I tell people that your emotions have EVERYTHING to do with your physical health.
So let's see what (if any) of these suggestions resonate with you? From the most woo-woo to the most scientific.
a. You're tired, you're stressed, work is driving you crackers. You are desperate for a holiday but you don't have enough leave left. You put your mind/logic ("must work, can't take time off") before your body/emotions ("I need time off, I hate my work but I'm too scared to leave"). The universe decides to step in... Bam, you get hit by a car and are forced to take time off! (Think about The Secret or Law of Attraction)
b. The same as a. but instead of the Universe, how about your subconscious? We have amazing instincts. Maybe on some level you walked in front of the car on purpose to get some much needed time off?
c. How about it was all a complete coincidence, you getting hit by a car. However, if you get hit by a car when you're totally relaxed, you're much less likely to receive a physical injury as when you're stressed. There have been incidents of skydiver's parachutes not opening and them being knocked unconscious and then hitting the ground and walking away. The thinking is because they were relaxed, they didn't get injured by the impact. They weren't tense. The same goes for the car hitting you; if you're stressed, you're more likely to get seriously injured.
I personally think that there are many layers to it, I don't think life is as simple as "oh it's because of this"... So I think that all three probably apply to this hypothetical situation.
It's becoming increasingly clear to me that our emotions play a huge part in our health and happiness. From my own journey, our whole family has seen a huge turnaround since working with our emotions, both physically and mentally.
