The Mind and Healing from Cancer and Disease

Physical Body, The Mind, Transforming All of YOU Add comments

What else can our mind do to our body?

If you are in a dangerous situation what happens to you, how do you feel? For example think of a time when you almost had a car accident and in a split second you were safe. What happened to your body, your breathing? Your muscles tense, your heart races and beats faster, and your breathing is fast.

This is your body’s natural instinct to react with this fear. This is instinct. Emotions now are similar but different. They are your body’s response to a thought. So for example you are begin to worry about your daughter who hasn’t come home and you begin to think about the freeway she is driving on and then imagine a horrible accident. Your heart beats faster, your muscles are tense and your breathing is faster.

 To the body a thought like this of fear and worry means danger and the body responds accordingly. “Although the body is very intelligent, it cannot tell the difference between an actual situaltion and a thought. It reacts to every thought as if it were a reality.” Eckart Tolle

This is all a mental game, not real, but it is producing a lot of bodily functions to change. Over time what happens to all this negative energy in our body?

 I had to learn this lesson to survive my cancer. My mind was controlling my life, my health, my body, my spirit. And all the thoughts were not even real. As a cancer survivor speaker I use my story of learning this and healing to help others see and feel and change their thinking too.

    Reading your story reminds me of an author in a very similar situation. Alesia Shute is a childhood cancer survivor and wrote her story, and has dedicated her life to fighting this disease. Check out her website becaue the two of you might be able to help each other. http://www.everythingsokaybook.com
