5 Ways you can heal your body with your mind

A disease needs to be dealt with using all of your resources.

Getting rid of disease begins with becoming aware – it starts with the realisation that you have a problem. The procedure progresses by knowing where to go and having a clear roadmap of how to get there. It is accomplished by consistently reassuring yourself that you will eventually get better and embrace absolute health.

There’s nothing stopping you from achieving what you want – the only thing that stands in your way is the way you think. This is why I strongly believe that healing physical pain and disease begins with having control over your mind!

The connection between your mind & body

In ancient times, the relation between the human mind and body has been compared to that of the heavens and the earth. The body is like a temple, a place that’s supposed to be pure, whereas the mind is the heaven that has a divine connection with the temple below.

Not a lot of people realise this but the way we think and perceive the world has a significant impact on our overall health and immune system. Our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs towards specific situations guide our bodies to behave in certain ways that could either be destructive or beneficial to our physical selves. It’s obvious that you cannot avoid disease by just using your mind – that’s your immune system’s job – but it could very well determine if the immune system does its job well in the first place. For example, day-to-day conditions such as the flu or bloating can be difficult to avoid. However, the way your mind processes the situation affects how well you cope with the symptoms.

In this blog post, I will discuss the different ways in which you can use the power of your mind to heal your physical body. By the end of it, you will realise that a healthy mind is always accompanied by a healthier body. Let’s begin!

With a dose of positive thoughts

Thoughts create focus. Focus creates energy. And where you decide to channel that energy depends on your thoughts!

If you let negative thoughts haunt your mind, you will eventually be feeding your disease with that negative energy. Thinking that your body cannot heal, that you are destined to stay sick or that you do not deserve love, care, and support will ultimately lead to the worsening of your condition as you will be feeding on negative energy.

On the other hand, if you let your mind generate positive thoughts, you will be allowing positive, invigorating energy to flow throughout your body. Your physical self will, thus, feel much better. So, think positively and always be optimistic. The suffering, pain or disease that you are coping with right now is only temporary – don’t let it affect who you are as a person! Know within your heart that you are worthy of all the love and care in the world.

With some meditation and visualisation

Just like your body, your mind also needs to calm down, relax, and de-stress.

The practice of meditation has been followed for centuries and is a proven technique for battling stress, anxiety, and depression, letting go of negative thoughts, and becoming more self-aware. It helps in de-cluttering your mind and ridding it of harmful thoughts that could be getting in the way of your recovery. So, make a habit of meditation – sit down in a quiet place, either on a chair or on the ground with your legs crossed, close your eyes, and just focus on the quietness.

Apart from meditation, visualisation has also proven to be a promising way of building a positive mindset. By visualising that you have a healthy body, you will eventually get on the path that will make that dream come true.

With the right intentions

They say that the willpower of human beings is an unstoppable force. If you have the right kind of intentions, nothing, not even the whole universe, can stop you from achieving your goals and fulfilling your dreams.

The same is the case with disease and being healthier. If you make up your mind that you want to get better and get rid of your illness, you will do all you can to achieve that goal. Developing the intention to get better, to feel better, and to embrace a better tomorrow will lead you towards making the right choices concerning your health. You will develop a self-care mindset and will adopt a healthier lifestyle before you know it!

With a clear purpose

If you were to break down the word ‘purpose,’ you’d be left with the words ‘pure’ and ‘position.’ The meaning is hidden in the word itself – to have a purpose is to have a pure position in life, a clear roadmap and 100% surety of where you want to be and what you have to do to get there.

Purpose develops in the mind. But how can it help you heal your physical self? It’s simple: if you have a purpose in life, you will muster up the motivation and the energy to take better care of yourself. Why? Because if you feel better today, you will be able to accomplish your purpose in a much better way tomorrow!

With the placebo effect

The Placebo Effect has long been looked upon with suspicion by the medical community. What does it imply? Take a pill that has absolutely no healing qualities but have 100% belief that it’s going to work and you will eventually cure your disease or feel much better.

The truth is, it actually works. That’s the power of your mind – if you truly believe that something is true, you could very well manipulate the actual physical state and promote healing. Hence, having the belief that whatever little thing you do every day for your health – be it consuming a balanced diet, working out, or simply stretching for a few minutes – does have an impact will help you achieve a healthier body!

Take-home message

Your mind is the best weapon that you can use to combat physical illness and pain – all you have to do is to use it the right way! Implement the above-mentioned tips and I guarantee that you will experience a positive difference in a matter of hours! Best of luck.
