Every minute of every day, your body is physically reacting, literally changing, in response to the thoughts that run through your mind. It’s been proven over and over again that just thinking about something causes your brain to release neurotransmitters - chemical messengers that allow it to communicate with parts of itself and the rest of your body through your nervous system. Neurotransmitters control virtually all of your body’s functions, including hormone production, digestion, heartrate, muscle function, glandular activity and particularly, emotions.
Scientific studies have shown that thoughts alone can improve vision, fitness, and strength. The placebo effect, as observed with fake operations and sham drugs, for example, works because of the power of thought. Positive affirmations and expectancies have been shown to change brain chemistry and circuitry which results in real physiological and cognitive outcomes, such as less fatigue, better immune system reaction, normal sleep patterns, and reduced anxiety and stress amongst other things.
A sizable body of research exploring the nature of consciousness, carried on for more than thirty years in prestigious scientific institutions around the world, shows that thoughts are capable of affecting everything from the simplest organisms to the most complex living beings. A thought is not only a thing; a thought is a thing that influences other things. Thoughts and deep intentions are vibrations which interact with and affect other vibrations which make up the material particles and substance of our universe.
It’s been well documented that directed thoughts can affect a person’s own body in numerous ways. But thoughts have also been shown to alter some biological processes in another person, including gross motor movements, and those of the heart, eye, brain and respiratory system. Researchers have demonstrated that deep human intention can affect a variety of other living systems such as bacteria, mice, cats and dogs and even the direction in which fish swim.
Such evidence is the basis for some belief systems made popular by the non-physical Law of Attraction (LOA). All too often, this concept has been exploited in books, promising anyone that they can get rich and famous, find the person of their dreams, or get skinny instantly and effortlessly just by thinking the right thoughts. All you have to do is visualize it, and it will happen. However, it’s not quite that simple or direct.
Let’s assume for a minute that there is some truth to the concept. If you are constantly thinking about how you don’t have enough money and all the bills are piling up, how do you think these thoughts are going to influence your reality if they do even a little bit? If you worry unrelentingly about getting cancer and freak out at every little thing, what kind of energy are these thoughts emitting and subjecting your body to? Conversely, if money is tight, but you concentrate on your competence to find solutions, and focus on gratitude for things that you do have in your life, how is this going to influence your reality?
Worry has become seen as normal, usual, and even an unavoidable part of life. In my own experience, not worrying felt so foreign to me at first, I would actually search for things to worry about. This is not to say that there are never things in life that cause anxiety, but focusing on the solutions to problems is for more affirmative than living in and dwelling on the problem itself.
It has now been proven beyond doubt, that stress is the main cause of a number of physical illnesses, such as allergic conditions e.g. asthma or ecxma, fibromyalgia, migraine, heart problems, gastric ulcers and other intestinal complaints, nervous system complications (neuropathy), panic attacks or full-blown epilepsy and even certain types of cancer.
The lesson to be learnt here is this: Understand how to control your mind and thoughts, in order to improve your life and your physical health.
