The Science Of Mind Over Matter
We possess an incredible power. It's the power of
mind to heal or attract that which we focus our
You have most likely seen it at work in many people.
You probably know those (or perhaps you are even
one) who constantly talk about their aches, pains and
illnesses. They seem to always be sick.
Sometimes we may wonder if they are making it up
just to get attention. But they are not making it up.
They do feel that they are sick. The aches and pains
are very real to them, even if tests done by their
doctor show no problems. Eventually they do get
worse and become very sick because that is what
they are focusing on and bringing into their life
It can happen rather quickly once we put our
attention on the negative. For example, have you
noticed all the advertising in the media concerning
symptoms for various diseases? When you hear
those, your mind will start checking out your body.
Natural aches and pains will make you start to
worry and wonder if you have the disease. You
may even start to feel sick!
Now go back. You were feeling fine until you
started thinking about disease. These negative
thoughts have started to create an energy blockage
in your body. Your energy or life force is no longer
flowing freely. If the blockage remains, it could
develop into illness.
You can develop energy blockages without even
realizing it. They can come from everyday stress.
Usually these blockages will go away on their own
just by resting, such as getting a good night's sleep
or during meditation.
Our beliefs can also cause blockages. We believe
that we are limited in what we can do to prevent
disease, aging and other aspects of our lives. We
generally do not believe that we can use the power
of our mind to heal ourselves and achieve our goals.
Even if we do come to the realization that we can do
these things, it may take awhile for us to develop it
as we have been taught since birth that we don't have
much control over what happens to us.
Now think again how quickly the negative thoughts
can make us feel awful. How quickly they can turn
to stress, depression and even illness. That goes to
show how powerful our minds really are. We have
been practicing the negative for a long time and we
are very good at it!
Now it's time to practice the positive. The greatest
power of all is that if you don't like your thoughts, if
they are not working to make you a healthier, happier
person, then you have the power to change them.
An exciting awakening is taking place all over the
world about the role these powers have in healing,
self development, and success. Even science is
taking note of this wonderful power. It all comes
down to quantum physics, a branch of science that
describes the nature of the universe as being very
different than the world we can see. It is a study of
the building blocks of the universe.
Quantum physics can be rather complicated so I won't
get into it in detail. I have been reading a lot about it
and the following will give you an overview of what
it's about. If you have even the basic understanding
of quantum physics, you will see clearly how faith
and positive thinking actually work.
Your body is made of cells, which are made of
molecules, which are made of atoms, which are made
of sub-atomic particles. Everything is made of large
groups of sub-atomic particles, your body, trees,
planets, light, your car, your home, even your
Sub-atomic particles are not actually particles, they
are energy packets sometimes called "quanta". They
are pure energy and they are also "probabilities of
existence". It is these energy packets that are at our
Everything in the universe is made of these energy
packets. Therefore, everything in the universe is
energy that exists as waves over space and time. So
nothing is really solid. It only appears solid when large
groups of sub-atomic particles come together to make
Quantum physics has discovered that it is the act of
observing an object that causes it to be there. These
energy waves only become particles when they are
observed. Withdraw observation and they become
waves again. Therefore, it is your observation,
attention and intention to something that causes it to
come into your experience or reality. Nothing is real,
until we make it real by giving it our attention.
This is the scientific basics on how faith and positive
thinking works. We don't really need to understand
how it works, just know that it does. But if you feel
you need more scientific facts to help you believe, you
can do a search on quantum physics and learn more.
It is a fascinating subject.
Energy healers know how to manipulate this energy
to heal a body. They use their energy, as well as
visualization and their intention to heal, to work with
their client's energy to remove the blockages and
help the body to heal itself. Many healers find that
the healing works faster when they call upon the
universal energy of God, their spiritual guides or
Learning how to manipulate this energy can bring
much more than healing. Many people are using
it to manifest great improvements in their lives, such
as better jobs, relationships, and material things.
There is still much to be learned about this great
power that we possess. But the wonderful thing is
that you don't have to know how it works, just learn
to have faith in it. And you can start practicing it right
now. Don't be too hard on yourself if you don't see
improvements right away in whatever aspect of your
life that you are working on. Like any new skill, it
I have found that one of the best ways to keep
yourself focused on using this power to manifest is
to read all you can about it. There are an abundance
of books both online and offline that will help you
get your energy flowing in the positive direction.
So why not get started? You have nothing to lose
but the negative aspects of your life and the rewards
will be great.
I wish you all the best in great health, happiness
