The Law of Attraction is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring correlating experiences into one’s life. This is especially true with our health. For example, have you ever felt like you were coming down with a cold and said to yourself: “I can’t get sick right now I have to work”- and you find that you were able to fend off the bug? Or told yourself yourself you are feeling sick only to find yourself in bed for a week?
The mind is probably the most powerful tool we have and has the ability to manifest our inner thoughts, dreams, or fears. If you go around thinking negative thoughts you will attract this energy into your life and the same holds true if you think positive thoughts.
You are the master of your own mind and what you were taught at an early age can affect how you view the world. Were you told not to talk to strangers, and that the world is a cruel place? Or perhaps it was instilled in you that people were friendly and the world was a safe place? Life experiences shape and mold our outlook on life.
In dealing with any illness or disease it is imperative to have knowledge of the illness, be an informed patient and take control of your health. Medicine is sometimes necessary in treating disease but not a magic pill for some if they are unable to change their mindset and overcome negative thoughts and unresolved feelings. Remember disease is when the body is at DIS-ease with itself. The most common mental thought patterns that may cause disease in the body are anger, resentment, and guilt.
Louise L. Hay the founder of Hay House believed there is a mental cause to physical disease after healing herself from advanced cervical cancer. She believed that long held emotions from sexual abuse as a young child had attributed to her disease. She credits her healing to working through the long-held feelings of anger, pain and hurt caused to her as a child and lived to the age of 90. In her best-selling book Heal Your Body, she lists many diseases, their cause mentally, then she adds an affirmation to help heal the body.
In today’s world cancer seems to be rampant and if we take a moment and look at how we live, and how this effects our well-being this may be one factor in the rise of cancer. Years ago, the leading causes of death were heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. The number one cause of death in today’s world is stress. We stress ourselves to the limit physically, emotionally, and mentally. We need to slow down, have balance in our lives, avoid stress like the plague. Take time to take care of yourself not only physically, but also mentally.
Of course, no one lives forever, but we can live a better and healthier life if we believe we are! We are what we think after all.
