The Amazing Power of Your Mind
Let’s look at how powerful your mind is. Let’s compare your mind to the most sophisticated man-made device ever created; the computer. The
average computer can hold around 250000 pictures, 20000 songs and hundreds of full length videos. Nowadays, on something the size of my
finger. But let’s compare it to your mind. Your mind can perform an estimated ten quadrillion operations per second, without you knowing it!
Ask yourself right now; what’s making your blood flow through out your veins with the perfect amount of pressure to keep you alive? What’s
making your heart beat right now? Are you consciously commanding your heart to beat right now? No. what’s maintaining your body
temperature to the perfect degree to keep you alive? What’s doing the six trillion things to your sixty trillion cells every … single … second?
It’s something called your subconscious mind. This is the power house to who you are. Your cat has it, even your dog has it! But of all the things
your subconscious mind can do, it can’t do one thing. And this thing can attract good things into your life, or it can absolutely demolish your
health. What is that one thing it can’t do? It can’t distinguish between a real event and something you merely think about. What happens when
you have a nightmare? You wake up. Your heart is pounding. You’re sweating. And you are anxious about words. The nightmare existed in your
mind. You weren’t in any real danger at all, but your mind didn’t know that. You physiologically reacted as if the nightmare was actually taking
place in reality. There was a study conducted where a doctor hooked up an elite athlete, a professional skier to a device that measured the
athlete’s muscle fibers. He told the skier to merely think about skiing down a hill without moving a muscle. The act of thinking about skiing
down a hill actually made the same muscle fibers that would have actually fired off if he would be actually skiing fire off from thoughts.
This has been demonstrated time after time with the placebo effect. Group A suffering from a particular illness gets prescribed a
pharmaceutical FDA approved drug specifically designed to treat that illness. Group B suffering from the same illness gets a sugar pill, thinking
it’s real medication. Both groups get cured. In fact, the New England Journal of medicine published a study involving two groups suffering from
the same degenerative knee disorder. Group A had a surgery designed to scope out the knee and relieve the symptoms of the disorder. Group
B, with the permission of the families had a fake surgery. A fake surgery. A placebo surgery, thinking that they had a real surgery. Only three
small infusions were made in the kneecap. But no real surgery was performed. Both groups reported that the surgery was a success. In fact,
researchers are suggesting that a minimum of one third of all medical treatment, including surgery is due to the belief that the treatment is
going to work… the placebo effect. Most people don’t realize that there is also something called the Nocebo effect. It’s practically the opposite
of the Placebo effect. The mind instead of curing illness, contributes to illness. That’s what a Hypochondriac is. Their belief that they’re going to
develop a disease actually causes them to experience the symptoms of it.
Whatever belief you hold in your subconscious mind will become your reality. That’s how hypnosis works. The hypnotist implants the idea in
the back of the subject’s mind and the subject experiences whatever they hold there. If they hold the belief that there is a spider on their arm,
their eyes actually see a spider on their arm. An amazing demonstration occurs when a hypnotist walks towards his subject with his finger
extended. He tells his subject that his finger is hot and burning. The hypnotist slowly touches the subject on their arm and a blister actually
forms in the exact place that the finger touched. Now this is crucial to understand in all healing. Free will as we understand it is practically an
illusion. In fact, 2 to 4% of the time you decide what you want to do. You actually make the decision. 96 to 98 % of the time you don’t. You’re on
auto-pilot. Your subconscious mind controls your decisions, 96 to 98 % of the time. Don’t believe that? Do you like ice cream? If you do, snap
your fingers and stop liking it! Do you enjoy watching sports? Snap your fingers and stop enjoying it. You can’t.
96 to 98 % of the time everything we crave, desire, and act upon comes from what we hold predominantly in the back of our subconscious
minds. Whatever we hold predominantly in the back of our subconscious minds we are attracted to in life. What happens when you buy a new
car? It’s the only car you see on the road for the next two and a half weeks. You saw those cars before you bought your car, but why didn’t they
stand out to you? Because you didn’t own that car yourself. You weren’t thinking about it yourself. What you hold in your mind, you are
attracted to in life. That’s why how subliminal ads work so effectively. They work so effectively that they are banned in over 10 countries as a
way to advertise.
So, if what you hold in the back of your subconscious mind shapes your reality. What shapes your subconscious mind practically everything that
you are exposed to? Everything you see, hear, smell, taste and feel is shaping your subconscious mind. Let’s look at some specifics; television.
Here’s a scary stat. by the time a child finishes elementary school, that child has witnessed on estimated 8000 simulated murders on TV. All of
these extremely graphic scenes are sinking back into their minds and don’t be tricked by Hollywood or cartoons. In the most important
development years when a child should be taught compassion and understanding, extremely intelligent minds behind the creation of perceived
harmless children’s cartoons are sinking violence into back of their minds. Don’t be fooled.
What are you listening to on the radio? Every single word or thought you hold in your mind has a particular vibration frequency. Negative
words or intentions have slower vibration frequencies, and positive words have higher vibration frequencies.
This is a song by Lady Gaga, called bad romance. Some of the lyrics are, I want your drama, I want your ugly, I want a bad bad romance. Our
thoughts create us. We have to be extremely careful with what we are feeding our minds. Music can be beautiful and beneficial but it can also
have a negative impact on your health. Choose wisely.
When I was growing up the most violence we had on video games was Maric and Luigi, jumping over turtles’ heads. This …… is what our youth
are playing today…! These gruesome extremely graphic images are sinking into the backs of their subconscious minds. Weakening their
immune systems and having astronomical gradual negative effects on their health. Nobody’s saying, that these games are going to cause them
to pick up a gun and go shoot somebody, but these games are affecting their health. There is zero doubt about that.
What happens when you gossip? In order for you, to gossip you have to hold a negative memory and negative thought inside of your mind. You
not only think about that negative memory, you share it with the other person that you are talking to. The second you hold negative thoughts in
your mind, the biochemistry of your brain changes and you release cortisol, the stress hormone, into your blood which then weakens your
immune system. Inhibits the actions of your white blood cells, increases the chances of infection and even promotes weight gain. All from
gossiping; all from your thinking. You can’t gossip without hurting yourself. Remember that.
But of everything you can expose yourself to, there is nothing more important than the thought you hold in your mind. We have an average
60,000 thoughts a day and the reality is, not only are most of these thoughts the same thoughts we had yesterday, but they are negative
thoughts. Either, dwelling on something bad in the past or fearing something that can potentially happen in the future. The second we have
these negative thoughts, the second we release cortisol, the stress hormone, into our blood. Our thoughts create us.
Most people believe that situations cause them anxiety, stress or cause them to be depressed. The reality is this. There is absolutely no
situation in the entire universe that can cause someone to experience anxiety; none. It’s your psychological reaction to the situation that can
cause you to experience anxiety. Not the situation itself.
This is crucial to understand. Why is it that when one person skydives, their brain releases endorphins, the good feeling chemical, into their
blood, while releasing cortisol into another? It’s the same situation. How can the company of one person cause excitement and one person
while making another person stressed? It’s because it’s never the situation that causes anyone to experience anxiety, but the reaction to it. You
create your anxiety not a situation. When you truly, fundamentally understand this truth, that’s when you realize that you control your anxiety
not a situation. It’s one of the most liberating feelings you can ever experience. If you create it, you can take it .away. Your thoughts control your
life. You are the creator of your everything. Choose your thoughts wisely.
