Healing through the Subconscious
The power of the subconscious is beyond measure. Your subconscious controls your heart beat, the circulation of your blood, your digestive system, the growth of your hair and nails and the repairs to your body. Every time you cut yourself your subconscious mind immediately starts the clotting process, the knitting of tissue and the healing of your skin. Every time you catch a virus your subconscious starts the attack to fight off these unwanted bugs and you recover. Your subconscious mind never sleeps; it is always alert to ensure it does the best for you.
During the 1840s a Scottish surgeon, Dr James Esdaille, was practicing medicine in Bengal. This was before anaesthesia was used, but Dr Esdaille performed hundreds of major surgical operations, including amputations, removal of cancerous growths and all the usual ordinary procedures under mental anaesthesia. That is to say … under hypnosis. These patients said they felt no pain and unlike so many operations performed else throughout the world at that time, none of Dr Esdaille’s patients died. Over one and a half centuries ago this man used the power of the subconscious mind to successfully treat his patients!
Can we heal ourselves?
Worry, fear, depression, anxiety all upset the normal functions of the heart, lungs, stomach and the digestive system. The American philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Man is what he thinks all day long.” If you are weighed down with worries, fear or anxiety your thoughts will reflect this. In fact, your thoughts will feed all of the above and the more you dwell on these negative thoughts the worse you feel physically.
I once read a story about a Native American Indian who was sitting at the camp fire with his grandson one night. He was explaining to the boy that inside all of us there are two wolves. One wolf is good, the wolf of kindness, confidence, generosity, love, tolerance etc. The other wolf is bad, the wolf of fear, greed, self loathing, lack of confidence etc. These two wolves are always battling inside of us. The little pondered on this for a few moments and then asked his grandfather “Which wolf wins?” The Grandfather replied, “The one you feed!”
We can heal ourselves by giving positive life healing suggestions to our subconscious minds; we can exchange the negative thoughts for positive thoughts. We all have an active mind and a reactive body and when we “feed the wolf” within with positive thoughts we experience wellness and health.

Living life to the full with harmony and equilibrium.
