I want to touch upon the power of the mind, power of love, power of prayer, meditation, visualization, positive thinking, etc.
There are a lot of different words and concepts that we can use for such things.
Everyone has different beliefs, but regardless of belief systems, religions, or philosophies, the power of positive thought has been demonstrated, and in recent decades has even been proven and accepted by science.
To give you more confidence about such efforts, and to hopefully empower everyone to help themselves a bit more, I want to share some supportive information with you.
To get you started, here is a ‘feel good’ story about a hollywood producer that revealed his story to CNN:
This stuff is not new. There is actually a medical profession that focuses on such concepts, and I know it well because I was studying it on my own and in college. It is the field of psychology known as PNI, or psychoneuroimmunology, and it studies how our psychological state affects the immune system. If you want to know more, an easy reference is here:
Now, PNI studies the impact of a person’s own mind on his own body. Wonderful stuff to be sure, but we can actually go a step further than that…
Back in the 1980s I had already collected many books and magazine articles detailing double blind experiments and stories of people healing better when OTHER people prayed or meditated for them. These experiments showed positive results, whether or not the people knew they were the focus of such positive thoughts. Very encouraging research.
But you guys don’t need me to tell you this stuff. All of us have some type of religious background that encourages such practices. Be it christianity or voodoo, the idea is the same. I just wanted to reinforce this practice. And to that end…
Dr. Bob Beck, who I have mention elsewhere on this blog, provided us with some other astounding verifications on this topic, quite by accident. In his efforts to develop a ‘Brain Tuner’ that could help people recover from addiction, depression, and other such conditions, he did extensive testing on ‘supposedly’ extraordinary people in various cultures. Some excerpts:
“We found almost invariably that when they were in their working state—which was only a few seconds—you’re here you get the information you come back, you can talk about it for hours. It’s a flash, in the twinkling of an eye. They were showing about a 7.83 hertz, almost pure coherent maybe 20 microvolt signal frontal to occipital midline. That’s between F1 and F2 in the standard nomenclature system to halfway between 01 and 02 if you’re an encephalographer. In other words the third eye … which shows whole brain alpha. Over and over again we found these frequencies in people with remarkable talents—healers, radionics operators, dousers, shamans, witch doctors, mystics, golden don, priests and priestesses—if they were authentic.. “
There is tons of other more ‘mainstream’ stuff out there. Do the research.
