With my mind I shall heal my body

February 6, 2018

When I was growing up my parents didn’t have money. When one of us kids got injured there wasn’t the option of going to a physical therapist or a massage therapist or a chiropractor or an acupuncturist. I read a lot of books on the power of the mind, so when I got injured I used my mind to heal myself. And it worked. I successfully healed myself of a heart murmur. When I was young, my mind was powerful and strong.

Now that I am an adult, I can afford to hire physical therapists and massage therapists and chiropractors and acupuncturists. 3 months ago, I injured my shoulder. Since then I’ve undergone physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture. I’ve given them a lot of my money and time. The pain in my shoulder remains. Recently I remembered how, as a child, I used my mind to heal myself. Sadly, I’ve come to realize that my mind has become weak in terms of its power to heal myself. But, I am determined, my mind will be powerful again! Deep inside, I know how to heal my shoulder – do the deep relaxation that I used to do as a child. I have started doing this and my shoulder is already improving.

Beliefs are really valuable even if they are wrong

The placebo effect has repeatedly demonstrated the power of the mind. If you believe strongly in something, then the mind has the power to make it happen.

If you believe that a vitamin or an exercise will keep you young and healthy, then the mind will make it happen, even if there is no factual basis for the vitamin or exercise having such a health- and age-altering effect.

So, …. Have a good set of positive, strong beliefs!
