This documentary featuring Bob Proctor from the movie, “The Secret,” Dr. Bernie Siegal, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Bruce Lipton, Dr. Sue Morter and Gregg Braden, discusses the role that our belief system plays on our health. It focuses on the power of the mind, and emphasizes the importance of choosing healthy thoughts.
They compare the human body to a car, and the mind to the driver of the car. They propose that instead of reading our body’s warning signs, which are much like warning lights in a car, we mask and ignore them until a problem becomes so large that it can’t be ignored any longer. They admit that there are times when cars wind up in a junk yard because of mechanical failure, but they drive a point home (a little pun there) that the majority of the time, cars are junked because of driver error. We’re not choosing our thoughts carefully enough.
The Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy says, “Ninety percent of disease is caused or complicated by stress. Some of the leading conditions that cause the greatest health burden in this country — heart disease, stroke, cancer, and severe depression — are linked to stress, and to a large extent are preventable.”
So how, exactly, are these things preventable if they’re caused by stress? Most of the time we can’t change the things in the world that stress us out, so what we have to do is change the way we look at our stressors. In other words, we have to change our thoughts.
According to the movie, “The nervous system reads the environment and sends signals to our cells. Between the environment and our cells, is perception. It’s not the environment that controls our cells. It’s our perception of the environment that has control of our cells.”
Changing our perception, our thoughts about what’s happening around us, is a key to preventing heart disease, stroke, cancer and severe depression.
If thoughts of stress bring on and exacerbates disease, does that mean that beautiful, positive and loving thoughts can make us healthy? As the movie suggests, “Consider the possibility of infinite possibilities.” What if we truly had the power to keep and make ourselves well? Would you be willing to work at being calm while in a difficult situation? Could you find it in your heart to forgive someone who has done you wrong? Could you set aside fear and anger, to allow thoughts of pure health and happiness? These things are not easy. In fact, they can be a big challenge, but they are possible.
If you’re interested in how optimism, love, forgiveness, positive affirmations, the law of attraction, and your conscious and unconscious mind directly affect your health, see this movie. It’s an hour and 15 minutes long.
I will be showing this inspirational documentary, free of charge, as a community service, at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at the Valley Alternative Healing Center, 719 Roskilde Road, Solvang. A complimentary and complementary restorative yoga class, including meditation about health will follow, for anyone who would like to stay for it.
Remember, when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at, change.
