In this thread I want to explore some positive aspects of spirituality.
A short list to think and talk about would include – The Placebo Effect, Co-incidences, The Power of Thoughts, The Importance of Water, The Self-Healing nature of the Human Body and Mind, The Original Purity and Power of the Human Soul, - there are many more. I will make a start now and add more later. I will be glad to read any additions, comments, anecdotes, etc.
I will start with my first Weapon of Mass Construction;
- The Placebo Effect.
In every test conducted some of the people who received the placebo experience a real and measurable reduction in their illness, sometimes even a complete cure of their disease, which may or may not be a serious disease, depending on the trial. Scientists call this the “Placebo Effect”. Often spontaneous remissions or cures are attributed to this placebo effect. For example a disabled person may go to a place where there is “Holy Water” such as Lourdes in France, take the treatment there, which according to current medical science is religious mumbo-jumbo and complete nonsense, and that person will be cured completely.
The scientists would say that this is just the Placebo Effect. JUST! By any terms it is a miracle. These miracles take place during every scientific trial, as I said above, you don’t have to be religious to be healed. The truth seems to be that if a person believes a pill made of nothing but chalk and sugar will cure their illness, then it will work. In fact it is not only not necessary to go to Lourdes, it is not only not necessary to be religious, it is not even necessary to take the pill. I am a Reiki Master (Reiki is a form of “spiritual” healing), and I have seen many people cured of illnesses just by putting my hands on them. Even this “Laying on of Hands” is not necessary. The real truth is that I am not healing that person, the Lourdes water is not healing that person, the sugar pill is not healing that person. So what is?
I think it is the power of their own minds and bodies to heal themselves, and that we all have this power. The Placebo Effect is simply the power of thought and, if you like, faith, although that is a loaded word and I don’t personally use it much. So if we can heal ourselves by the power of thought what else can we do with it? My answer is we can do anything we desire to do. Anything. Walk on water? Sure, yes, if we believe it enough. I am not at that stage, but I have manifested many things in my life just using the power of thought. Examples – A wonderful wife, a good financial income, my dream home, the best friends a man could have. How have I done it? Just by knowing that I will get exactly what I desire and then leaving it to the universe to fill in the details and deliver what I want without a further thought or an ounce of effort on my part. This part is important.
Once I have made the initial intention I do not worry about the details or try to make efforts towards my goal. I wait for the co-incidences and miracles to happen, that is all. I am ready for the opportunity and I take it when it presents itself, no more. The universe exists to give me exactly what I want. I create it all. If I worry or entertain negative thoughts then I will get back negative results. Just set the intent – then trust in the result I have visualised – then forget it. I will recognise the right time to act when it comes. Live in the present. One day at a time. Trust the universe to provide me with my desire, and be careful about what I do desire.
I want a good relationship, so don’t think about all the old ones that have gone wrong, just visualise my perfect relationship and absolutely know it is mine. I want plenty of money, so don’t think about debt or lack, just see myself having an abundant income, and trust the universe to do its job. This is all working for me right now. I have all I want. I am not any different from the rest of humanity. Anyone can do this. Look back at the placebo effect. When there is a miracle cure the scientists say it is just the placebo effect, then they dismiss it. Do not dismiss it or you will end up like those fools. It is the most important thing that they have discovered in their drug trials, and they dismiss it! Use it. Use it all the time. Wake up with it. Go to sleep with it. Live with it as your constant knowledge. You create your own world through the power of your thoughts.
Your thoughts are a "Weapon" of Mass Construction. They can make anything if you are plugged into the power of the universe and aligned with that power. If you believe in the power of your own thoughts you will be gods, supermen, superwomen. You will be able to create anything you desire.
You may need a little practice – so don’t stop taking your medications, or doing your exercises right away, but practise this, see how it feels. When you start to experience the results then your belief in your self will become greater still. There are no limits here. Only our own doubts and fears have to be overcome. You don’t need Jesus or Baba or Buddha, just a belief in and alignment with your own higher self. It is your own higher self that creates all that you perceive anyway.
You are already creating your own world. Why not create a good one. Go ahead. Give it a try. It is working for me. When you get some good results then let me know. Then the real work begins. If I can create my perfect world for myself, by myself ... and you can do the same ... think what a paradise we will create for ourselves when we start to work together!
Love & Luck
