“Disease and health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body. Thoughts of fear have been known to kill a man as speedily as a bullet, and they are continually killing thousands of people just as surely though less rapidly. The people who live in fear of disease are the people who get it. Anxiety quickly demoralizes the whole body, and lays it open to the entrance of disease; while impure thoughts, even if not physically indulged, will soon shatter the nervous system” – by James Allen from As a Man Thinketh
Healing powers is an inside job!
It’s simply not true that the gift of healing belongs only to certain people – or that you have to travel to the far reaches of the world to find a healer or drink a certain type of water, or that spiritual healing is a type of voo-doo magic or only based on superstition! You actually have healing powers inside of you. All you need to do is tap into your own wellness resource and use it – and best of all it’s free. A lot of people believe that healing is reliant on some outside source such as sitting on a couch listening to a psychiatrist solve their problems or running to their doctor for medications for stress, anxiety, depression or pain. Unfortunately, relying on medications only delays the healing process. Whatever issues you have will only be suppressed with unnecessary medications . Unless the psychiatrist gets at the core issues , this is not going to be very effective in the long run. When you go off medications, then there will be mighty hell to pay, because the issue will still be there. Why? Because you have blocked and suppressed the pain or issue – and it can and will come back with a mightier vengeance. Most people have not yet learned the healing secret of the ages – that health is basically an inside job, mentally as well as physically. It does not matter how successful a treatment may be in time of illness, a person often becomes sick again because they have not gotten to the root of their illness. It is the root cause of any illness or disease that needs to be dissected and analyzed. Only then will you get onto the path of true healing. If you take the word disease and dissect it – Dis – Ease. It merely means that your body is at dis – ease with itself. However, ill thoughts that build up in your mind constrict your own life force which in turn, will cause dis – ease or lack of ease.
Use your mind as a tool
I believe that a good first place to start is to use your own mind as a tool for healing. Your mind can be used in any way you wish, but when you use it as a habit to stay stuck in disease and illness, you have trained your mind into this way of thinking. Habits can be changed if you want them to be changed or at least be open to the possibility of changing.
“The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician.
Therefore the physician must start from nature,
with an open mind.”
–Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus
