If We Change Our Thoughts, Will Our Body Heal?
Updated: Mar 25, 2022
I’m living proof!
Are the mind and the body connected? Can we become healthy simply by changing our thoughts? Indeed, there are many cases of spontaneous remission. And, according to Dr. Joe Dispenza and other researchers, those people who suddenly beat cancer or banished decades of pain, all had a few things in common. All believed they could be healed or envisioned themselves as being healed. All were ready to make lifestyle changes. All focused on gratitude. So, why doesn’t everyone take this route? What holds them back.
It’s hard to focus when you are in pain!
Well, if you’re writhing in pain or perhaps bed ridden, it’s hard to focus on anything other than what’s going on in your body. You buy into the pain and discomfort and each day you do that, it becomes harder and harder to get better. Our brain creates a pattern of signals that says, “Hey, the body is in pain.” The body can heal itself, if the mind is made ready and our belief patterns interrupted from a core level. You just need to swap out one belief pattern for another.
I know this is possible because I’ve done it! I used my mind and the power of my thoughts to heal my body.
Several years ago, I herniated 4 discs in my lower back. Well, one of them was ruptured. My back had been hurting for several days while working out at the gym. I’d pop an ibuprofen and the pain would stop. I was on a roll though. My body felt amazing and strong with just this nagging pain after my workouts. Little did I realize my body was speaking to me, “Time to pay attention! Hello! Hurting here!” For a few weeks, I continued my workouts and my ibuprofen. All was well until, I decided to nudge my washing machine over just a few inches.
Something was wrong!
Heck, strong body, I’d been working out, sounded easy. Until I heard and felt a snapping. The pain wasn’t immediate but I knew something was wrong. So, I took it easy the rest of the day and went to bed early. When I awoke, I could barely get out of bed. I had trouble lowering myself on the toilet for my morning pee and then the agony of the twist to wipe myself was beyond excruciating. Oh my, what had I done? I felt this fear whelming up inside me. My body had my ultimate attention now!
I did what every respecting person would do, I went back to bed and opened my laptop. Google back pain. The prognosis was grim. Botched surgery and continued pain throughout the rest of my lifetime.
I started to sob. I felt so hopeless and helpless.
My next thought was, “I am not buying into having surgery. I know I can heal.” So I turned to my theta belief work practice. I knew I need to remove the thoughts patterns that were holding me back so my back could heal.
Changing my belief systems!
Typically when the body develops lower back problems it indicates an imbalance of power in the physical. Most likely it is an unequal exchange of energy between two or more individuals. In my case, it was my sister. I had tried for years to get her to like me and all she did was cut me down and dismiss my thoughts and feelings. In fact, she told me that she was right and that we couldn’t agree to disagree. I kept holding on to two basic thought patterns. One was that I could somehow fix her and that this would make our relationship heal. The second thought pattern was that I resented her for her passive aggressive behavior towards me. Neither one of these thought patterns served me and both gave my power to her.
Theta Brain Waves – an Empathetic State
So, I started to work. I used the theta brain wave which is an empathetic brain wave state, and a specific prayer to pull limiting beliefs and replace them with empowering ones. I took my power back. Within a week, my back started to feel much better. I also took physical action which was to walk. I took it slow because more than 7 or 8 steps literally stopped me in my tracks. I had to rest, but I walked. At first, down the street and then around the block and then around the park.
By the time I got to the surgeon and he looked at my MRI, he couldn’t believe I was sitting on the examining table, smiling. He said, “Yours is the worst back I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe you’re sitting there. What have you done to heal? When I explained my thought work, he just shook his head. “I don’t know what it is he said, but keep on doing it.” So I did.
Hurt or Heal?
Our thoughts can hurt us and they can heal us. It’s about breaking patterns of thought and replacing them with new patterns. I know it can be done because I have done it. I have seen and felt the results.
