Many of you may know by now that I like to call our current situation a process called healing (and never as a fight.) Being a caregiver to Luis has taught me a lot over the years. And although we're still going through it, I would still ask many questions. Such as, "What is it that heals?" "And where does this healing power come from?" Finding the answers, has allowed me to help support him mentally and spiritually- not just physically.
This blog post was actually inspired through visiting the site CancerCompass.com. There, I've met some incredible patients and caregivers. Everyday, these great people inspire me with their strength and courage. And they remind me to keep pushing forward with Luis.
I will explain how I became aware of this healing power (which we all poses.) But first, in order to understand, one must be willing to put their old beliefs aside- (you know, the ones you were brought up believing) and be open minded to this new way of thinking. This is where my blog title "Health For The New Mind" truly gets its meaning from. New mind = new beliefs. Beliefs that will inspire you to become an optimist.
HOW YOUR MIND WORKS
(For those who don't know). There's 2 levels of your mind. The conscious- (rational) and the subconscious- (irrational). You think with your conscious mind. And what ever you think about sinks down into your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is the seed of your emotions and your creative mind. If you think good, good will follow. If you think evil, evil will follow. Once the subconscious mind accepts an idea, it begins to execute it. You must remember though, the subconscious mind works for good and bad ideas the same.
ONE UNIVERSAL HEALING POWER
In the past, I've visited many links to sites with groups of people who offer different methods and therapies to patients with cancer. I noticed that they all claim that because their theory produces results, it's therefore the correct one. I realized then, that they must be something common to them all. Specifically the subconscious mind. And the one process of healing is Faith.
All of these groups, such as, psychiatrist, psychologist, chiropractor, doctors and all the churches are using the #1 universal power in the subconscious mind. And they all claim the healings are due to their theory. But the one process of ALL healing is a positive mental attitude or a way of thinking called faith.
A patients healing is due to their confident expectancy that acts as a powerful suggestion to the subconscious mind releasing its healing strength. One patient doesn't heal by a different power than another. Yes, s/he may have their own method but there's only one process of healing and that's FAITH.
BIBLICAL TERMS ON THE USE OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS POWERS
For inspiration, I sometimes read passages from the bible and follow Dr. Joseph Murphy's teachings. He was a new thought minister in divine science and religious science. Some of his teachings also come from inspired writers in the bible- (as mentioned below).
The prime condition which Jesus consisted upon was faith. Over and over again you read in the bible, "According to your faith is it done unto you." If you plant a seed in the ground, you have faith it will grow. And trusting the laws of growth, you know that the seed will come forth after its kind. Faith (as mentioned in the bible) is a way of thinking, an attitude of mind. Knowing that the idea you completely accept in your conscious mind will find its way into your subconscious mind- and made manifest.
A classical instance of bible technique: Matthew 9:28-30 When he entered the house, the blind men approached him, and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I can do this?" "Yes, Lord," they answered him. Then he touched their eyes, saying, "Let it be done for you according to your Faith!" And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus warned them sternly, "Be sure that no one finds out!"
The words, "Let it be done for you according to your Faith." You can see that Jesus was actually appealing to the cooperation of the subconscious mind of the blind men. Their Faith was their expectancy and their inner feeling that something incredible was going to happen. And that their prayer will be answered- and it was.
Faith is when you accept something as true, while you reasoning senses deny it. It's also important to ignore the rational conscious mind and always have an attitude of complete trust on the inner power of your subconscious mind. :o)
Until next time................choose the method (or theory) you prefer and you can be sure, if you have faith you will get results.
