Healing Your Body with the Help of Your Mind
“Busy your mind with the concepts of harmony, health, peace, and good will, and wonders will happen in your life.” ?
Joseph Murphy, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Our body and mind are always in sync. You might find it difficult to believe, but there are numerous scientific theories that have proved; that with the help of a healthy mind, you can actually get a healthy body. If you are suffering from extensive serious sickness, if you are feeling that the treatment is not really working for you, even after giving it a lot of time, if you are constantly feeling unwell even when there is no visible sickness, maybe it is time to work on your mind.
As the author, Joseph Murphy puts it forth, our mind has the infinite capability, like a gold mine within us. All we have to do is to explore how far we can go with our subconscious so that we can experience harmony, health, and ultimate bliss. And for this, you need to prepare your mind with regular exercises. Once you attune your mind with your body and the well being of it, you will experience how easy it can be to heal yourself. Unbelievable, isn’t it? To be honest, there are many instances around that can prove that miracles happen and that too with the power of your mind.
Are you wondering how you can attain that bliss of a healed body with the help of your mind? I won’t make you wait for a long time, dear reader. I am going to tell you about a few techniques that can help you in healing with the help of your mind. When you are reading them and thinking of following this path, make sure you are sticking by it. Though they are extremely helpful, yet they are not a magic wand that will heal you overnight. Practice and you will gain the placebo effect. How cannot you? Just like the famous neuroscientist, Dr. Joe Dispenza says, “You are the placebo.”
Relaxation Technique to Help
The most common and easiest technique that can help you is relaxation. For this, you don’t need any specific environment or any assistance from the world around. All you have to do is just sit back and relax. Yes, literally that! Start with loosening your postures and then with your slow inhaling and exhaling. After that, you can shift your focus on muscle on any part of your body, for instance, your leg. Tighten it and loosen it for a few times. If you want, you can keep your eyes closed as well. Doing this will not only help you deal with stress but will also aid you in dealing with palpitation or hypertension.
Since the ancient ages, people have been following this path in healing. In fact, many religions around the world, like Buddhism and Hinduism have made meditation a part of their religious practice too. If done properly, it can offer you a plethora of benefits that will astound you to your core. Unlike relaxation technique, you need a specific environment for this. Find a peaceful spot where you can spend a few minutes to maybe one hour meditating. It would be great if you can start your day with it as meditation will fill you with an immense amount of positive energy.
Self Positive Talk
Now, this technique needs constant practice as well as a powerful subconscious mind that will make you amazingly positive about everything. When you are suffering from a disease and pain, it is easy to give in to the despair that it brings along. Joseph Murphy, renowned writer of the book The Power of Your Subconscious Mind says, “Never finish a negative statement; reverse it immediately, and wonders will happen in your life.” So, when you are suffering and the world seems to end like that, don’t think negatively. Self-positive talk continuously can have an immense effect on your body. If you are finding it difficult to say anything positive to yourself as your mind is drifting away, then write it down whenever you get time. Writing is connected to your muscle memory. With this, your mind will make you believe in faster healing. Eventually, it will help you recover faster too. This way, you can deal with the incessant pain too.
Are you already attuned with your deepest desires and thoughts of quickly recovering from your ailment? If yes, then this can be quite an effective healing process. Subliminal can work with the help of message or audio that will help you listen so that you can achieve your goal. In this case, you have to keep in mind that the subliminal message is not tangible to your conscious mind. Only your subconscious and unconscious mind can hear and understand the message as a reality.
When you are thinking of hypnosis, the first thing that might come to your mind is a movie scene where someone is hanging a watch like a pendulum while the other person or the receptor is going in a trance and is able to do things like robots. However, it is far from reality. Hypnosis doesn’t need to lie down and sleep or go in a trance-like situation. Rather hypnosis makes your mind and senses much more aware than your usual state. There had been many experiments that have proved it many times that hypnosis can be actually the best way for treatment and most importantly pain management. In fact, a team of researchers headed by Carol Ginandes of Harvard Medical School and Patricia Brooks of the Union Institute in Cincinnati has successfully proved with an experiment that patients have healed faster after surgery with the help of hypnosis rather than those patients who were only treated with medicines and medical care.
It has been acknowledged all over the world that music can play a huge role in our well being. Music therapy has quickly become one of the most recognized alternate healing processes that have made it much easier for people to deal with pain, stress, chronic illness and so on. So, when you are in distress or anxious, you can think of listening to soothing music that can help you concentrate more and deal with stress. In fact, listening to natural sound can be soothing too. No wonder, there are several software as well as mobile apps that enables you to concentrate on work or daily life with the help of natural sound and instrumental music.
Healthy Food Habit
Our body is formed with the inherent ability to heal itself. When you cut a finger or burn your skin, after some time, your body will start working on healing that particular place. However, when there is any deficiency in your body, it affects that natural process of healing. That is why following a healthy diet regime will be essentially helpful for you. It will not only enable your natural healing process but will enhance the ability to make the process faster. For example, if you cut down excess sugar or carbohydrate and replace it with natural food full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, it will immensely help you enhancing your healing and immunity.
So, now as you know how you can improve the quality of life by using your mind for healing your body, start working towards this goal today. Take a small step every day. Set a new realistic goal with it. And with time, you will reach the ultimate bliss of a healthy life. Just like Dr. Joe Dispenza said in his book You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter, “Most change starts with the simple process of something outside of us altering something inside of us. If you begin the inward journey and start to change your inner world of thoughts and feelings, it should create an improved state of well-being. If you keep repeating the process in meditation, then in time, epigenetic changes should begin to alter your outer presentation—and you become your own placebo.”
