Why Do People Think the Mind Body Connection to Healing is a Good Idea?

You may have heard that emotions can effect how you feel. Stress is linked to the highest causes of death in the US. You have also probably heard of the expression “mind over matter” but how can we do this?

How can we control or reduce stress?

One way to shift into contentment from undesired thoughts and emotions is a breathing exercise I learned from Jeff Primack. Take 9 deep, quick breaths. Slow down on the 8th and hold on the 9th, tucking the chin.

The quiet breath provides space to think of what we DO want.

We can imagine, and feel the joy, of having our desires. Practice this breath until it becomes a habit. You may see more “Miracles”. “Miracles” are the result of learning how “The Great All” operates.

A good place to practice is waiting in line or in traffic. The material world changes when we learn to use the power of our own thoughts and feelings. It helps to love ourselves and know that we deserve to have what we want. The Body-Mind may believe that it isn’t possible or we don’t deserve to have what we desire due to past experience.

The Body-Mind’s connection to Spirit is illustrated by Michelle who came to me for pain from the stress of saying good-bye to parent in the hospital.

Two years before she had been in a bad accident and was close to leaving herself. She was pushed into oncoming traffic while riding her motorcycle. Bones broken and organs burst, the pain was unbearable.

Michelle left her body. Out of her body, she was told that it was not her time to leave. The messenger was a tall African-American. Returning to her body, the pain was so great that she popped out again. This time the fellow told her that her children needed her, she must go back. She did.

A year later she heard a familiar voice while watching a TV documentary. Her husband exclaimed, “Michelle, you’re as white as a China doll!” She had recognized the voice of a man describing an accident where his car left the California coastal highway. He had been under water for 45 minutes on the same date and time (a 3 hour difference) as her accident on the East Coast. He was describing a short-haired, olive-skinned lady. (Michelle is Italian.) The documentary then showed a tall African-American.

If the gentleman had become conscious while underwater, he would have drowned. Maybe he was enlisted to help Michelle so he could complete his own life commitments.

Michele’s experience taught me about our spiritual bodies. I felt a sense of the oneness of angels and human spirit.

Clearing the Underlining Cause of Pain

belly-black-and-white-body-42069How do you take charge of your life?

Pam called to make an appointment with me for healing back pain. She didn’t come to me for her weight issue.

I always ask people on the phone “If there was a magic wand and you could have anything you wanted what would it be?”.

I ask them to look at their relationships, health, carrier,  hobbies, and passions and make a list. I ask them what would make them happy and what makes their life uncomfortable.

“I eat well and I don’t even eat much!” exclaimed the overweight lady, who asked for help with low back pain.

I’ll call her Pam. Her emotional response alerted me to search for more information. Spirit speaks to us through the emotions in our bodies. Pam’s spirit evidently had something to share.  I asked her body, using kinesiology (muscle testing), “When was the first time you made a decision about your weight, was it after birth?”

Her arm muscle indicated “no”.

“Before birth?”        “Yes”

“First trimester?” “No”

“Second trimester?” “No”

“Third trimester?”“Yes”

“7th month?”              “Yes”

Pam did not know any details about her mother’s pregnancy. I asked if her mother had weight issues. She angrily replied, “No!” Her mother had always been slim. Pam’s emotional response clued me that her Spirit was communicating again. I surmised that as a young woman, her mother was so aware of maintaining a slim figure that she had developed a knee-jerk habit of eating less upon seeing her belly swell. Babies begin to gain weight around the 7th month.

On examination, her doctor, may have advised Pam’s mother, “You have GOT to gain weight!” Who knows how he stated it. But the Body-Mind of the baby apparently got a message, something like, “I have to gain weight or I will die!” Bringing the old Body-Mind belief into present time with compassion and understanding, the old inaccurate belief was cleared. Pam’s body felt the release. A limiting belief had been cleared along with a strong dislike of her body.

Subtle and powerful Bach Flower Remedies can assist in shifting old emotional patterns which prevent love for self. Pets respond very well to Rescue Remedy, a combination of several of the Remedies. It may be good to keep in the car for traffic issues.  Choose a Remedy according to the current emotional situation or pattern. The originating historic source is not needed to remove old blocks formore joy and self-love

The electromagnetic field of the heart is 60 times that of the brain!
A strong electromagnetic field makes us resistant to disease. Therapists, counselors, and friends can be very helpful in clearing blocks to loving ourselves and others, thereby supporting our body’s health.

Choosing to feel content is a powerful way to support the heart and strengthen our electromagnetic fields. A feeling of contentment supports our bodies, minds and spirits. Contentment comes from listening to our inner most truth, walking the path of our own hearts.

Do what makes your heart sing.

My 92 year old aunt said it another way, “Find what you love to do and do a lot of it.”
