Your Beliefs and Your Health – Part 1

Beliefs alter the immune system. Simple. Not sure? Consider the old saying: “Think sick, be sick” and then find the research into this idea and you’ll soon find lots of evidence to support it! For example… a study found that 79% of medical students report the symptoms of the illnesses they study. Another found that more traditional Chinese Americans die years earlier than non-Chinese US citizens if they were born in a year considered to be one of ill-luck. Still another looked at patient responses and found that when they were told they might vomit if they took a...

Beliefs…

You may have read some books by Gregg Braden. If not, he may be worth looking into a little as he believes that change in the world can come about by changing our beliefs. Think about that idea for a moment. I love how he looks at words as a means of bringing about the right feelings in order to create the right effects.

I thought I spoke with passion, eloquence, knowledge and rather well. But the questioner repeated the question – this time rather more slowly. I still didn’t get what he meant so he explained. He said that outer travel only reflects our inner journey. This sounded odd and made my confusion greater still. He went on to explain that he felt that the physical world offers us...

Discovery – Part 2

What’s the biggest discovery any human being could make? Ever. I’m not sure it is a thing, a place or even an idea. I think it’s centred on ourselves. I offer to you two linked thoughts here. The biggest discovery anyone could ever make is to fully discover who they are at their core. This sounds like work and it is. But the really hard work then begins. And that is to accept ourselves fully, and to commit to being more fully ourselves. Without being critical of anyone and without striving to change. Sounds odd. I know. The other...
