“Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us now knowing this truth. We are at our best when they give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.” – Albert Schweitzer

It’s flu season, a time when people all around us seem to get sick. Believe it or not, we have a choice. We’re not talking about the vaccine, although as a precaution we get that ourselves. What we’re talking about here is whether or not we get sick based on our mental focus. Come again? Yeah, there may be something of value for our readers here. Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t get colds or the flu? Your author used to get the flu and also nasty colds that lingered on for weeks or more than a month. We don’t anymore. Can we share with you why?
“It’s going away now.”
This simple advice as to what to say to ourselves when we feel the first inkling of getting sick sounds to good to be true. It’s not. It’s amazing how well it works. If we have child-like, unwavering belief that whatever has begun to ail us is already leaving our body, it will. We’ve been doing this for more than 10 years and it’s awesome not only for its ease of use but its simplicity. Try it and see. You will be floored at how much control your body has with the right instruction.
Oh- that brings to mind some words of caution, don’t tell yourself “I’m sick” or “I’m getting sick” or “I don’t feel good”- these commonly misunderstood phrases aren’t a statement of fact. No, rather, these are actually commands dutifully obeyed by your subconscious mind. By telling yourself or others these things you are actually overriding the healthy norm your mind and body aspire to.
Your subconscious mind is so amazing, it took you from a single cell and created all of that which is you. It has the perfect pattern of a healthy being in it’s code. Within it’s capabilities are healing no doctor can dream of applying. The mind is by far the most important factor in wellness, often times surpassing the ability of medicine. We’ve had to go to outrageous lengths to try and eliminate the presence of mind in clinical trials. We do “double blind” studies, not telling the patient what they are taking AND not telling the person administering the drug as to whether it’s real or a placebo (sugar pill). Even then, mind isn’t entirely eliminated from the study.
We’ve got more to say on this topic next time, so stay tuned. For now, remember this important truth which you should want to repeat often, preferably when you’ve gotten into a relaxed sleepy state so it sinks deep down- “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.”
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“Why would I ever want to give voice, and thus power, to sickness?”
