Diet, sleep, and exercise obviously have a significant impact on our bodies’ overall health and well being.
What may not be as obvious is the huge effect that our minds have on our body.
Our minds whisper to our bodies. Our bodies listen to our minds.
Three ways that our minds powerfully affect our body are through our thoughts, beliefs, and imagination.
As far as thoughts go , toxic thoughts are literally toxic to our bodies… especially when we give them energy and emotion.
Our bodies are a manifestation of our mind.
Thoughts have a powerful affect on our body especially fearful and judgmental thoughts about ourselves and others.
Judgement causes the cellular structure of our body to become weak and break down. When you judge, your cells’ function is affected.
Conversely, loving thoughts, thoughts that are in alignment with the truth of our being, promote health and vitality.
Your body will let you know what you have been thinking.
If you could see how your thoughts affect your body you would reconsider where your focus is.
Don’t be discouraged. Thoughts can impact your body negatively but they can also help heal your body. This is evidenced in the Placebo effect.
A belief is like a thought you have thought enough times that you believe it to be the truth.
Beliefs are like software programs. When you strongly believe anything, your brain and body will go about making that belief into a manifest reality.
One example of a prevalent collective belief is the belief that as you age you will progressively develop more and more health issues. I other words, aging and degenerative disease go hand in hand.
Many believe that health problems are a natural outcome of aging. But that isn’t necessarily so. This is just a belief. You may subscribe to it. Or not. If you choose to subscribe to this belief, remember the following- your mind is so powerful that it can and will manifest this belief into existence.
When you imagine or visualize an event and do so with some feeling your body and brain will register that event as if it is really happening.
For example if you visualize running a race, the neural networks in your brain will fire in the same way as if you are actually physically doing the activity.
I am not suggesting this as a replacement for physical activity. lol.
So, if you want to have a magical body then have a magical mind.
