So, if a guru were to tell you that “om” might be the healthiest sound you could utter—would you believe it?? Well, it’s true. Of course, that is what a guru believes, right?? Now what if your doctor told you to sit, focus and be “mindful” every day?
Would you believe that can trump typical western medicine for health and wellness in some circumstances? Well, it can. Participants in an 8 week mindfulness meditation class experienced structural brain changes including increased grey-matter density (aka good brain tissue) in a region of the brain known to be important to learning and memory.
Also mindfulness practices increased activity in structures associated with self awareness, compassion an introspection. This study showed a structural change that could underlie health improvements. It meant people were healthier because of meditation and not just the relaxation associated with meditation. Participants had brain MRI’s two weeks prior and 8 weeks (YES—just 8 weeks) after beginning a short two month mindfulness stress reduction program. The meditation course included weekly meetings, guided meditation and audio meditations to do at home daily.
Thinking or how you think is very important in healing. In fact, you thought yourself into sickness, infirmity, ailment, injury and disease. Your thinking is what started your sickness or disease. As all comes from thought, so does sickness and disease. Most people don’t have a clue of this, but they thought themselves into their present state, whatever that state may be.
First, you think yourself sick; then you speak yourself sick. Take fear for example. It is very true that “what you fear will appear.” When you fear a thing, you attract the thing you fear via the Law of Attraction (LOA).
This is why it pays to only think positive, especially when the thought of a thing is recurrent or consistent because consistent thoughts magnifies the thought and brings the thought ultimately into physical manifestation.
If you keep having thoughts of contracting some new virus, you’ll eventually “catch” that virus. Basically, your body will give you the new virus by developing the new virus. Your body can develop poison or it can develop a nepenthe, panacea, or antidote. Your body (it’s endocrine system) is a laboratory. It is alchemical, mystical, and magical.
You must watch your thoughts and you most certainly must watch your words. Again, people are speaking themselves into sickness. Saying things like: ‘I can’t stand you!’, ‘You get on my damn nerves!’, ‘You make me sick!’; ‘You make my stomach turn!’, or “you’re a pain in my neck!’ actually causes your body to respond to these statements (words) and eventually manifest such statements (words) in your physical body and in the precise or specific geographical areas of your body. Your body responds to everything you say, positive or negative. The impact of words, be they positive or negative, are stored in your tissues throughout your body.
This is why in order to heal you must positively change your thoughts and thinking, which should change how you speak.
If you doubt the efficacy of health products, herbs, or healing modalities or therapies, you lessen their efficacy.
If you think you can’t be cured or healed from a so-called incurable disease, chances are you won’t be cured or healed and it’s nobody’s fault but your own. Doubt is the subconscious will to fail.
You must think POSITIVE! You must think OPTIMISTICALLY! You must think PROGRESSIVELY! You must think PROACTIVELY!
Negative thinking blocks your healing. It keeps you in a diseased state. A clear mind is needed in order to successfully heal.
Visualize yourself the way you desire to see yourself. Feel how you desire to feel. If you desire a clean bill of health, FEEL IT! How would you feel if you released 20-30 pounds (if you needed to do so)? Then FEEL it right now! Use your mind! Well, at least use your mind for yourself because perhaps up until this moment you have been using your mind for someone or something else.
Your thoughts create your reality. Think yourself out of disease and into a state of optimal health and well-being or homeostasis (balance).
What you visualize can and will materialize! So constantly visualize a healthier and happier YOU! Visualize this into reality! So, what are you waiting for? In as little as a few months, a daily practice can structurally re-wire you to a healthier physical body.
