Healing and the various ways we can heal are common issues that come up in my conversations with many folks, and in private readings with my spirit guides.
Recently I read an interesting article about playwrite David Seidler (who won an Oscar at the Academy Awards). David healed his cancer with visualization. As you probably know, this is a contentious issue among medical professionals and the public alike.
The article quoted several prominent medical doctors with differing opinions.
Dr. Christiane Northrup said “The mind has the power to heal.” Dr. Bernie Siegel agreed. He spoke of a patient who “pictured white blood cells carrying cancer cells away, and he beat his cancer.” Dr. Marcia Angell disagreed: “There’s a tremendous arrogance to imagine that your mind is all that powerful.”
So who’s right? Can our thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes heal even so-called “terminal” diseases? Can our minds be our healers? Or our killers?
Your minds are powerful. They are tools you can use to heal yourselves. They can also be used to harm yourselves, though most of you would not deliberately do harm to yourselves.
First, it’s important to realize your physical body is your ally, your friend. Its natural state, always and with no exceptions, is that of perfect balance and well-being. In other words, perfect health. Your body is capable of living many years beyond what you consider a normal life span. And it is capable of doing so in a state of perfect health, right up to the moment you choose to die physically.
Having said that, however, we realize most of you do not unconditionally accept those words we just gave you. Therein lies the “problem.”
It’s not a problem in the usual sense. But it is a problem if you want to heal your body from, for example, a so-called “terminal” disease, but believe you must rely on outside powers to achieve the healing for you.
We are not saying you should not consult with medical professionals if that feels right for you. We are saying to choose a healer, traditional or non-traditional, who is convinced of your body’s natural ability to restore and heal itself.
All any healer can do is to facilitate your body in doing what it knows perfectly well how to do — to heal and be whole again. Choose a healer who’s willing to be your equal partner in your healing.
Of course, all of what we’re talking about here hinges on one critical element — your belief in natural healing, or your lack of belief.
Your state of health has little to do with your genes, your DNA, your family history, what you eat or drink, etc. It has everything to do with how you focus and use energy. Which is what your so-called “metabolism” is — it’s the way you use and focus energy (or vibration, if you prefer) for or against yourself.
It’s that simple. You can use your mind to heal yourself through your unshakeable belief in a whole, healthy body. Or you can use your mind by refusing to believe your body is naturally whole and healthy.
So it is true, as John said, your mind can be your healer — or your killer. It’s your choice.
