For better or worse, I glean my sense of self worth from being of service, hence my choice to become a medical Doctor. It soon became obvious, however, that within the paradigm of current medical science there is no cure for the chronic diseases that affect us.
What we are offered is a plethora of pills that maintain us in an persistent state of illness.This unrelenting chronicity was unacceptable so I chose to specialize in General Surgery. Here, I could make a real difference rather than be a manager of disease.
Even though General Surgery was rewarding and empowering, it was obvious that lifestyle changes can prevent and often cure most illnesses. Diet, exercise, and mental health practices are the corner stones of a Holistic approach to maintaining health rather than curing disease, so holistic health advice, and counseling became integral to my practice.
The next insight came quickly. Lifestyle changes make a huge impact on illness and disease but there is a deeper core of truth that most of us do not see or want to address. Our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs create the reality of our lives completely and totally.
This core aspect of health was not taught to me in Medical School. I came to this understanding through a constant and persistent search for truth, meaning, and healing in my own life.
Quantum Science has proven through direct experimentation that everything in existence both animate and inanimate is a form of energy in a spectrum of frequency and vibration. We create our lives using this energy by the focus of our attention and consciousness. For an easy to understand explanation of the laws of Quantum see Dr. Manur Samanta-Laughton’s book, “Punk Science..”http://ww.amazon.com/Punk-Science-Inside-Mind-God/dp/1905047932/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458926251&sr=1-1&keywords=punk+science
The field of Epigenetics emerged from the pioneering work of Bruce Lipton Phd. with stem cells at Stanford University. His experiments proved that genomic DNA is not the sole arbiter of our biology. Rather, the expression of DNA is modulated by our feelings, emotions and beliefs regarding ourselves and our place in the world, whether we feel safe and expansive or threatened and contracted.
This work is summarized in “The Biology of Belief”.ww.amazon.com/Biology-Belief-Unleashing-Consciousness-Miracles/dp/1401923127/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458925559&sr=1-1&keywords=bruce+liptonhttp://ww.amazon.com/Biology-Belief-Unleashing-Consciousness-Miracles/dp/1401923127/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458925559&sr=1-1&keywords=bruce+lipton
Energy medicine taught me that unexpressed emotion, (energy in motion) becomes locked into the cellular structure of the body as the amorphous feeling of stress. We now know that stress is the leading cause of chronic illness such as heart disease, asthma, fibromyalgia and a host of other chronic conditions. https://www.cmu.edu/news/archive/2007/October/oct10_cohenjama.shtml
So here are the keys to optimal health and personal fulfillment.
- Beliefs create thoughts.
- Thoughts create emotions.
- Emotions create either positive expansive feelings such as love, peace and joy or negative contracted feelings such as fear, restriction and resistance.
Beliefs are the software that directs the hard drive of our brain computers to produce thoughts. These thoughts elicit an emotional response that produces a vibration and frequency within our body and energy fields. This resonant frequency becomes magnetic to, and attracts the circumstances and reality of that belief. Belief creates reality.
These are the keys to empowerment. We may choose to consciously create what we want and desire or unconsciously create by default what we do not want.
Where do our beliefs come from? Surprisingly most are not our own.. In the hypnogogic state of childhood we download everything that we are told, see, hear, and experience into the hard drive of our brains which then forms the foundation of our beliefs. Unfortunately most are untrue and dis-empowering.
The over riding purveyor of beliefs about the nature of reality and our place in it comes from religion. We are told that we are born in sin. We are not good enough, our humanity is something to be eschewed and we need salvation so that we may escape from it.
These beliefs create within us the energy of fear, restriction, and self loathing which leads to stress, sickness and disease. Collectively, humanity is caught in the grip of self-annihilation, and planetary destruction.
So how do we consciously create health, well-being, and the life that we desire and deserve. We examine every thought that comes into our minds which is usually a recurring theme of “not good enough” repeated thousands of times per hour.
We examine our emotions, are they expansive and joyous or contractive, and despairing. Then we examine the underlying beliefs that were fed to us and see them for the gross errors that they are.
So pause, take a good deep breath, and focus on the love, and joy, that is within you and all around you. Step into the healthy, creative life that you desire and deserve, that is available in each and every moment.
