The Science of Being Well
Chapter 3 - Life and Its Organisms (20:42)
Sometimes something is so important to me that I just want to SHOUT IT OUT LOUD....This is one of those moments. The medical community is a BUSINESS....Whether we are talking about the local GP or the whole industry, it is a business that only makes money if we are sick and NEED their services....
What if the recommendations for check-ups and screenings are just a marketing ploy...what if all the commercials for drugs condition you to look for symptoms and call your doctor....
What if everything the medical community does is a means of keeping you sick.... and coming back for more treatment to keep them in business....
Our basic blueprint causes perfect functioning, but our thoughts, and sometimes our actions, alter the blueprint. For the most part, we are trained from birth that we need a doctor to determine the state of our health. This conditioning inserts an additional step into the healing process so that we must "visit the doctor" in order to move toward health.
This step is unnecessary and creates an unnatural disconnect, but very few of us rely on our own "knowing" to determine the status of our being.
This disconnect is fueled by outside warnings and dictates that danger and disease are lurking all around and even inside us so we must have checkups and tests. This leads to dissecting and picking apart the systems of the body where we will surely find something "wrong" that needs to be treated. This leads leads to more treatments that get more systems out of whack. Then we will probably need another checkup that leads to more treatments and we should study our disease and worry about what will happen next and we should find a support group so we can dwell even more on our disease.....All to keep the medical community in business....
Fortunately, we can stop the madness....
If we want better health then we must devote our thoughts to HEALTH. Regardless of our circumstances, we always have a choice of where we focus our attention.
Getting control of our thoughts and reconnecting with our body will go a long way to improving our health. Wattles advises us to "sever mental relations with disease and unify our thoughts with health."
The body is a magnificent mechanism and has an amazing ability to repair and regenerate itself.
There are many things we can do to help. Understanding how the body works is not necessary, but learning to effectively man the controls has many benefits. The controls are our thoughts and beliefs. With a little effort, we can monitor our thoughts.
The body also reacts and conforms to the beliefs that we hold. It is possible that some of these beliefs may be held in our subconscious without our awareness. There are methods to release these beliefs that are relatively easy and painless to perform.
Tapping is one of my favorites because it is easy to learn, anyone can do it and it releases the emotional charge attached to events that have lasting effects on us.
I was recently introduced to Rikka Zimmerman and Access Consciousness as a way to "destroy and uncreate" unwanted thoughts and beliefs. This is an interesting process and feels very uplifting, but I have very limited experience with this method.
Once again, I say awareness is crucial. Pay attention to what you are thinking and saying that pertains to your health.
Start with something easy, such as how you answer the routine question "How are you?"
Do you answer with a positive statement such as "I am great and getting better every day?"
Continue to choose each thought carefully as the day unfolds. Cancel any negative thoughts that come up and reframe them with a positive counterpart.
The important thing is to keep the mental body free of negative thoughts. Have faith in the process and believe in wellness.
Tip for the Day: (From Pat Carrington)
A Stress Check is easy to do. It simply involves bringing to mind any problems that are currently bothering you. When doing the Check you ask yourself, "What is uppermost in my mind right now that is causing at least some tension or stress? How much stress do I feel about it (on a 0 to 10 point scale)?" Then use tapping to clear any issue that turns up.
The issue you identify when answering these questions can consist of almost anything -- something that is going wrong with your plans, a physical distress, a deadline which must be met, or whatever else may be causing tension in your life. The point is to stop as soon as you identify a troublesome issue
The point of an Stress Check is to bring your stress level down to as close to a 0 or 1 as you can by using tapping, then ask yourself, "what else is bothering me somewhat (or a lot) today?"
This second question may well bring up other issues to tap on. If you don't have time to tap right away on your next issue I suggest write it on a 3" x 5" index card, put that into your pocket or purse, and tap on it later in the day.
Clearing issues when they come up stops them from accumulating in the mental body where they can eventually damage the physical body.
