The power of the mind is a curious thing, because it is so powerful yet so difficult to control sometimes (well, for me – most of the time). We find ourselves thinking a certain way, knowing that this thought may be creating trouble for us yet, we find it difficult to stop. For example, many people have the experience of getting sick at the same time every year or every time they go on a plane or eat a certain food. They may even be aware that their beliefs impact their experience, so they continue to think they will get sick and so they do.
Sometimes we need to get sick in order to process something or move something through our bodies. But often we get sick or feel exhausted because we don’t make the effort to galvanize the power of our minds in the service of our physical health, which is one of its most important functions. We really can use it to communicate to our bodies, yet we often regard the two as separate entities that have little to do with one another. Isn’t that interesting? We use the power of our mind – to repeat patterns or beliefs, but don’t use it to get rid of patterns or beliefs???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
So, we have the power to create physical health, mental/emotional health simply by paying attention to the “tapes” running in our minds. Once we hear ourselves, we have the option to let that tape keep funning or to make a new recording. We harness the power of the mind in our defense when we choose supportive, healing words that foster good health and high spirits. All we need to do is remember to tend the “field” of our mind with the attentive and loving hand of our “inner self”….
Try it…. it works…. My “inner voice” is telling me it is time for coffee… hear it???? I know you do.
