Do you believe you can heal? You probably do if you have a paper cut. But, what about when you encounter a more serious wound or disease? Do you still believe you can heal? If you don’t believe, you likely can’t heal. But, if you believe, you just may heal. Believing is healing.
Why Believing Is Key
Believing is one of the four pillars required for healing . When you believe that you cannot heal, your energy is infused with pessimism and negative thoughts. In this state, you consciously and subconsciously stop trying to heal. Your energy dims and it is very difficult to be motivated toward healing.
In contrast, the belief that you can heal sparks your energy, brightening it and energizing it. Then, your energy goes to work healing you even when you are focused on other things. Your healing is amplified and it becomes easier and easier to heal. Even when full healing is not in the cards, believing makes your life much better than when you do not believe.
The Power Of Believing
We know someone personally who was fighting multiple debilitating medical conditions. Her situation got so bad that she could barely leave the house. Then one day something changed. Despite questioning herself, she started taking actions toward healing. She did yoga, changed her diet, and made other adjustments. Slowly, she began to improve. Although her conditions are deemed incurable, today she is healthy, active, and free of medicines.
Staying Positive Even When The Odds Are Against You
Even when full healing is not in the cards, believing makes your life much better than when you do not believe. Michael J. Fox is a good example. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease when he was only 29 years old. Initially, he did not take the news well. He was in denial and fell into depression and alcoholism. However, he too hit a point where his life changed.
He stopped drinking, acknowledged his disease and he started the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. He had a new focus on helping people. Since then, he has shared his message of hope, encouragement, and gratitude with patients and supporters. His optimism and belief in a cure hasn’t healed his disease, but it has healed him as a person. Today, he continues his work with the foundation and his work as an actor.
Choosing To Believe
When you choose to believe that you can heal, it changes your energy, which can change you mentally, emotionally, and even physically. In The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton discusses scientific research into the impact of thoughts and beliefs on the cells in a person’s body. This is an indicator of how important thoughts and beliefs are to the physical aspect of your being.
With the belief in healing, comes optimism and determination. Thus, you are much more likely to take actions toward healing. This concept is quite simple. If you think something isn’t going to work, you aren’t likely to do it or at least not do it regularly. On the other hand, if you believe that medicine, exercise, rest, or whatever is prescribed will heal you, you are much more likely to follow the doctors orders. Thus, your actions also help drive healing.
You Have A Choice
Thus, when faced with an illness or injury, you have a choice. You can believe that you can heal or simply succumb to it. Belief in healing doesn’t guarantee that you will heal as there are other factors involved. However, believing that you won’t heal nearly guarantees that you won’t.
