It is possible to heal the body with the mind, and there is scientific proof


Heal the Body with the Mind
The mind is the control center of the human being, even more so than you know. The mind can make decisions, learn new things and feel emotions — it can also heal the body. You heard it right, the mind can completely and utterly destroy all signs of disease from the body.

One of the worst things to hear from your doctor is that you have a serious illness. The plans will be altered and your life will now revolve around treatments and medications, right? In most cases, this scenario proves to be true. In those few cases, this couldn’t be further from fact, especially if you know how to think correctly.

In case you didn’t know, and chances are, you didn’t, you can heal yourself with thought alone. The myths of this aren’t myths at all. There is proof to this idea.

Miracles and Science

Miracles may be one way to look at healing with the mind, and science could be the other way. With miracles, we place our lives in the hands of a great deity, praying that our ailments will go away. Science, on the other hand, provides a physiological explanation for this phenomenon.

Lissa Rankin, during a recent TEDtalk, explained the reality of healing with thought alone. It seems that the placebo effect has great power over the way we think and function, repairing our imperfections. This talk has shaken the medical profession. Doctors have a problem believing their treatments and medications could potentially become useless. If the mind heals the body and itself, then this is true.

Tests and the Truth

Of course, the only way to convince those who may be a little skeptical, would be to reveal the results of the latest placebo tests. People of various diseases such as HIV, cancer and heart disease, 3500 to be exact, were tested using the mind healing placebo effect. After the test was completed, the illnesses were improved or healed completely.

According to a paper published in the Journal of Projective Techniques in 1957, a man called Mr. Wright was given a medication and told that the drug would cure his cancer. After taking the medication, his tumors shrunk drastically. Upon realizing the drug didn’t really work, his cancer grew again. He was then administered, what he was told, was a better version of the same drug, and his tumors shrunk once again, half the size! Unfortunately, news broadcasts reported that all versions of the drug were worthless. The next day, the cancer patient died. Because of his beliefs, his mind took control over every aspect of his body and repaired what was wrong. When the placebo was revealed for what it really was, the doubts, depression and frustration defeated the patient’s will to live.

Comfort for Healing

It has also been understood that patients suffering alone are not as likely to survive as those who use health care. Doctors and nurses do more than administer drugs, they also provide comfort during the illness. Even when these doctors may be administering fake treatments, they are also providing a positive environment, which the body needs.

What the mind can really

The mind basically works through stress response and relaxation. There are many stress indicators throughout our day which contribute to an unhealthy system. Relaxation stimulates the brain to heal from the stress. When these things are out of balance, they can produce illnesses or make us more prone to contracting illnesses. Basically, the body’s defense system is not at peak performance when the brain is occupied with other issues.

In balance, the brain can work wonders. Not only can the mind heal illnesses of the body, it can also heal itself. The mind can do many things like cause hair to grow back and heal irritating issues that aren’t necessarily deadly.

With this being said, since the essential idea of staying healthy and living a long life seem to come from the power of the mind, it is obvious that our environment plays a huge part in how we think as well. Surrounding yourself with positive situations and people may just be the secret to maintaining a healthy body and stimulating the natural human control center — the mind.

A few minutes of Reiki a day can restore harmony on all levels and provide the base for a joyful day.


Reiki is called the Universal life force energy. In essence it is true yet there is much more to it than that; and the explanation of, what it is, and how it works, is in the name Rei-Ki.
We know what Ki: is it is the Chi that we can map in the meridian system and throughout every thing that lives. It is quantifiable and measurable. It is comprise at the atomic level to electron and proton and neutron that make up everything that exists, from your hand to the screen you are staring at! And yet these particles that make up matter are at the quantum level so tiny and separated by so much space that we are told that 99/995 of everything is nothing! That’s; right it’s non energy. The ancient called it Wuji or Rei. Some also call it the unifying field. But it is that non stuff between all “things” that binds them together with intelligence.
In fact, the greatest force in the universe is not the strong or week or nuclear or gravitational force. There is a force like no other that holds creation together and it is LOVE. It is the divine intelligence that abides in every cell of …anything! It is the Rei in Reiki than justifies that this energy channel from Source is indeed intelligent and when his the purest intent is flowing through any system will then harmonize it for it’s highest good.
As such Rei-Ki is your catalyst to transformation on all level: physical, emotional, mental, karmic and spiritual. It is indeed your catalyst to spiritual awakening.
