OUR THOUGHTS, MINUTE-BY-MINUTE…
Our thoughts, minute-by-minute, are playing a significant role in the way our body is behaving. The parasympathetic/sympathetic nervous system cannot tell the difference between something that is powerfully visualized and something real. Image this: you sleepily walk in the bedroom, and mistake the cord of your dressing gown for a snake. You know what happens next! You jump out of your skin and run out of the bedroom. You stand on the landing, shaking like a half-blind one-day-old puppy. Eventually, you build up the nerve to creep back in the bedroom and look down at the carpet. You think, what a fool I’ve been – it’s not a snake lying on the floor, it’s the cord of my dressing gown.
Let’s zoom in on this with the camera lens – let’s analyze what just happened. Isn’t it true; to say we just completely fooled our nervous system by telling it we have a snake in the bedroom and cajoled our body to turn on the fight-or-flight response? When you jumped out of your skin at the sight of the snake, your body received an avalanche of biological chemicals that came together to give you the best shot of escaping the immediate danger.
Look at what the power suggestion can do!
When we see and when we think it produces corresponding chemicals in our body – obviously not in such a dramatic way as when coming up against immediate danger. Negative/positive thoughts create matching chemicals. For instance, you might negatively respond to a person you dislike before he has even opened his mouth because a negative response to the individual automatically rises to the surface of your consciousness. Through inner discourse, we continuously manipulate our bodily functions and the distribution of our bodily chemicals.
But aren’t we supposed to have free will? Isn’t having the ability to be able to think for ourselves and act out our desires the features that intellectually puts us above all other species on this planet? Yes, this is true. Yet we don’t seem that much in control over ourselves. The brain is a computer, and all through life, we have programmed it to carry out regular operations we undertake, and we have programmed it to think for us when we are not consciously thinking. Our brain has limitless memory capacity. Whatever your age, if you want to learn how to speak and write French and Russian, and are willing to put in the time to program your brain with these two languages, then your personal biological computer will gladly accommodate the new information.
We have the power to program the brain with new thinking patterns and commands that will subsequently change bodily functioning and chemical distributions. Many moons ago, I decided to create some mind exercises in the hope that I might achieve some responses in the body to my work. I designed mind exercises to trick the nervous system in the same way you tricked your nervous system when you thought you saw a snake lying on the bedroom carpet. I decided to tell my brain and endocrine system by way of a repeated statement that ‘I am 7 years old, happy and healthy’. I started to see and feel responses to my work. I looked younger and felt younger. People who had no idea I worked on a mind program made comments about how young and healthy I looked. At the time of starting on my adventure, I regularly attended a self-help group – ‘Cancer Link’ – and many of the people attending this group either had cancer or were in remission and enjoyed many alternative therapies: meditation, guided imagery, aromatherapy, hand-on-healing, etc. Many individuals in the self-help group were more than eager to allow me to put them on my mental exercise program. The positive results were staggering. I have included in the last chapter of this book some testimonials.
Spurred on by my responses and the cancer patients’ responses to the mental exercises, I have developed a comprehensive program designed to give you back some of your youthfulness and natural health.
Isn’t it time for you to rediscover the child within?
