The Mind Is The Best Remedy For Poor Health …

When medical professionals give a patient a prognosis based on worse case scenarios, that suggests, in essence, that the patient can expect the worse, the patient is highly likely to prove their prognosis to be true. (- UNLESS that patient tends to buck authority, in which case, they might not be so willing to comply with the doctor's prediction! ;))

It seems that in spite of all of the preparation and precision that goes into delivering professional care, there is, perhaps, a missing link in the western approach to treating patients. There seems to be little, if any, consideration given to what is perhaps the most POWERFUL agents involved in any successful treatment process – our mental perception – do we BELIEVE the prognosis – do we swallow it hook, line, and sinker? If so, we tell the body to follow that path and then we are surprised when it does! This is where sometimes it is a good thing to be a rebel!

I think it was Bernie Siegal, MD, author and pediatric surgeon, who noted that the patients who recover most rapidly, from Cancer, for instance, are the ones who are the most difficult for those around them to handle! They ask questions, and don't always follow the doctor's orders.

The best survivors think for themselves; they refuse to blindly accept someone else's limited prognosis as being “the gospel”  for them – even if it IS their doctor who is delivering it. The thrivers in life are the ones who dare to leave a doorway in their minds open to the possibility of a radically different and much happier outcome.

It is those who hold a vision of themselves as being strong, healthy, and well, regardless of what the lab results and doctors say. This is the purpose denial is designed to play – for denial is sometimes helpful indeed, especially when we use it consciously as a way to block out anything that distracts us from aligning the radar-sharp focus of the mind only on that which we have chosen to be our point of reference for healing. We can know the “facts” about our condition, and accept whatever treatment we deem most appropriate,  without buying into the vision of our condition that those well-meaning professionals, family members, and/or friends hold for us.

Simply put it's how we see ourselves that will ultimately decide the outcomes in our life.

It is the Mind that ultimately decides our health.  When we hold a mental vision of ourselves as healthy, well, happy, and abundant, we automatically feel and act as if that mental vision is true, which then results in living a lifestyle most in alignment with bringing that vision of ourselves about.

Not only that but holding a vision of radiant health attracts us to the people and resources that already surround us; it's as if we suddenly wake up to a neighborhood that was created to meet our very needs, as if they were placed there by design for just such a moment as this sudden awakening.

But when we mentally attune our thoughts to the unhappy expectations of others, especially when those others are basing their words on scientific proof, we tend to automatically believe what we hear … and blindly live them out in life. For it is our belief in a thought, in other words, the amount of “faith” we put in what we hear, that seals the deal!

We live up  to the expectations of those we give mental authority over us away to. However, this does not mean they are responsible for our outcomes. No, even if they did plant seeds of doubt with their words, it is up to us whether we cultivate those seeds, and water and fertilize them into the outcomes we experience – or let them die from lack of attention.

These low-immunity beliefs are like gnarly roots that we trip over in our minds; they grow into fleshed out versions of the worse case outcomes prognosticated for us. What do we do about it?

The mind is a potent tool. We can burn ourselves bad with it, or we can learn how to use it's razor sharpness to work for us. We can aim the mind with thoughts of worst possible, “what if's” into realizing a life of fear and pain, or we can consciously choose to aim it's intent on a better option.

It seems to me that the critical question we must ask ourselves in relation to one another is this: “How might the outcome be different (for us, for them)  if we refuse to put our clients (family members, friends, or patients) into a box with a limited prognosis painted on the label?”

What would be different, if, instead of saying, “Here is the long list of worse case scenarios that you are most likely going to experience,” we instead work to support them in envisioning better possibilities for themselves? What if we took time to hear what vision of themselves they hold?  What if we worked with them to show them how to build mental immunity?  What if we, as care providers especially, recognized how important it is to build mental immunity? What if we were to treat the mental image our clients and patients hold of themselves as being as critical to recovery as any physical treatment they might receive?  Might we see better outcomes, more miracles in healing, if that approach were incorporated into the whole health approach?

I contend so … only because I've seen the difference it has made in my own health, and how transformative it is for others in challenging, even life threatening medical diagnoses using the tools The Reality Formula offers.

When we cast predictions for worsening conditions, we discount the power the mind has to heal the body. We can however learn how to encourage a vision of radiant health instead that will act as a “placebo for the mind” that can heal even the most dire conditions.
