Choose To Integrate Body, Mind & Soul
by: Kristine Peterson
Our bodies were made in such a way that everything is integrated. The mind appears to control everything. When something happens to the body whether good or bad, it registers in the brain and the brain then dictates the bodies response. Scientists has found that it also works that way within the body. Biofeedback has shown that the mind can direct the immune system to fight various infections in the body includ- ing the dreaded strains of cancer. For the average person this is a wonderful idea, but biofeedback costs money and besides not everyone has a life threatening problem. Imagine being able to do this for yourself in the comfort of your own home, office or anywhere else you can go to be alone for a few minutes! There are another kind of science that is telling us that the body listens when we talk. Think about that for a minute. When we talk we are saying what the mind is thinking; we are just saying it outloud. So, it follows we can do our own biofeedback anywhere we want. A very simple illustration of this will prove this to you. Hold your arms out in front of you extending your two index fingers. Shut your eyes and repeat our loud, “fingers come together”. Think it and say it and within two minutes your fingers do come together. When I first tried this it was very exciting to me that it worked because for me it opened possibilities in my mind! Since then I have become a talker to myself! A self whisperer if you will. I talk to my body and to my sub conscious even and I have gotten amazing results. This is one thing that I think will work for everyone because this is one of the functions of the body, mind and soul that was part of the design, just as blood running through everyone’s body is the same. But, you must have an open mind! Your mind accepts that blood runs through the body in a specific manner and so it must accept that the body, mind and soul will listen when it is spoken to, no matter who is speaking, yourself or someone else.
In the morning when you first wake up, lie still, calm your breathing, still your mind, and have a talk with yourself. Tell yourself what kind of day you are going to have. Keep everything positive! Tell yourself that you are happy and that you are going to be happy all day and that you are going to smile all day. Tell yourself what you are going to accomplish during the day. Tell yourself you will be relaxed and feel good about yourself. Tell yourself that you are a good person and that you have a lot to offer others. You will be surprised at how well your day will go. Always be honest with yourself! If you are a person that has low self esteem, spend some time telling yourself what areas you excel in, list your good qualities. When you are caught in traffic on the way home from work you can tell yourself what a good day it has been, list your accomplishments, tell yourself you are going to have a nice relaxed evening. Tell yourself you will be kind to your mate and your children.
Talking to yourself in this manner can change your life! I challenge you to try it!
