We have all heard about the power of the subconscious mind and how it can heal the body. Many psychics and spiritual leaders talk about this mystical place that houses your past, present, and future. The mind is where you decide what is real and what is fantasy. It is a powerful tool, but like any tool it can be misused.
Too much information can cloud our thinking and cause us to make poor decisions, such as using drugs and alcohol or picking up another hobby. The subconscious has the power to heal the body, but only if we learn to listen to what it is saying. We are not aware that our emotions are affecting what we think, feel and do. Emotions are so deeply woven into our being that they are difficult to remove.
Our emotions are closely tied to how we perceive things. For example, when we are angry, the anger causes a chemical reaction in the brain. Our mind thinks that the anger is real, but our body reacts with physical reactions. This is why getting angry sometimes does not leave you in control. You might think that you can just push those negative feelings away, but if you continue to ignore them they will continue to take control.
What is important to remember is that the subconscious does not know the difference between real and fake. It cannot differentiate between good and evil. It simply accepts both at the same time. So you can heal yourself by learning to release those unhealthy emotions. Do not try to suppress them, because they will intensify.
To heal the subconscious, you need to learn to quiet your mind. Distracting and overloading the mind does not allow you to focus. When you focus on too many things at once you become paralyzed and lose the ability to process information quickly. When you are trying to deal with a stressful situation, you may be thinking about so many things at once that it takes your mind a long time to really make sense of all of it.
In addition, the subconscious cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality. When you live in a fantasy, you will act out aspects of life that are out of balance. The subconscious also believes that everything you do is controlled by the past. So, if you dwell on the past, you will create more problems than you already have.
If you keep dwelling on negative emotions, you will only attract more of them. Negative emotions produce more pain and suffering, and so you continue to feel bad. The key to changing any habit or emotion is to focus on neutral or happy emotions.
Also, you can re-program your mind by learning to accept new beliefs and thoughts. The more comfortable you become with new thoughts, the easier they will be to accept. That's why some people take whole years to get into their most comfortable habits. They just go with what feels right. By accepting new beliefs and thoughts, you can program your mind so that your life becomes happier, healthier and more positive.
A popular belief is that bad habits are caused by a mind that is "stressed out". This is not true. Stress causes our immune system to function improperly. It affects our body's ability to heal itself. We need to learn how to relax our minds and bodies.
The third belief is that some diseases are "products of the body". Again, this is simply not true. All illnesses and diseases are merely symptoms of something else. For example, you might have digestive problems because of food allergies. Digestive problems do not necessarily indicate a poor digestive system. Digestive problems could actually indicate other health related issues.
The fourth belief is that healing requires focusing the mind. The truth is that any healing activity that includes the mind must be done consciously. Otherwise, the mind will become distracted and healing will be ineffective. When you focus your mind on your physical body, healing will be faster and more effective.
If you are wondering how to "heal the body", all it really takes is to remind yourself to relax and keep your thoughts at a positive level. You should also begin to believe that your body is healing itself. Once you have adopted these new beliefs, it will become easier to practice them on a daily basis. As you practice these self-healing techniques, your mind will also begin to relax, your immune system will function properly, and your healing powers will increase.
