Healing Cancer With Mind Over Pain
I received the most interesting email.
“Thought you might be interested in that on June 13th I underwent a 1.5 hour hernia operation without ANY anaesthetic - no general, no local. I did it with the power of my mind using only relaxation techniques that I teach my clients. (I am a psychotherapist.)
6 days after the surgery, I have just returned from the gym after running 5K and doing a gentle workout. I have developed a healing program that has really worked for me - I feel wonderful.
This is a dramatic demonstration of the power of thought and intention. There is a known surgeon in Valencia who has carried out complex surgery without anesthesia in more than 900 instances, film cameras were invited into his operating room, and captured on film a woman who was having an operation without anesthetic. All she had to do was keep her mouth full of saliva and keep repeating to herself, “My leg is anesthetized.” A dry mouth is one of the mind’s first warning signals of danger. When the mouth is kept lubricated, the brain relaxes, assumes all is well and turns off its pain receptors, assured that anesthetics had been given.
Hypnosis is a type of mental intention, made during an altered state. Hypnotists have been able to demonstrate that in many remarkable instances, the brain or body mistakes a thought for the thing itself.
A professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University in California, carried out a fascinating study demonstrating that the brain’s visual cortex, the area responsible for processing our images, cannot distinguish between a real image and just an imagined one.
His participants were shown a colored grid painting and asked to imagine the color draining from the picture, leaving only black and white. Through the use of PET scans, which record physical activity in the brain, the tests showed that blood flow and activity were noticeably diminishing in the part of the brain dealing with the perception of color, while the areas that process black, white and grey images were being stimulated.
When the experiment was reversed, and the participants in the study were asked to imagine grey images turning into color, the opposite changes in brain-perception patterns resulted.
The point is, the body and the brain cannot distinguish between an action and a thought. When we tell our brains that we are seeing black and white, our brain actually registers black and white.
Through hypnotic intention, spinal surgery patients about to undergo their operations have been able to reduce blood loss by nearly half, simply by willing their blood supply away from the site of the surgery.
Pregnant women have been able to turn their babies from breech positions, burn victims have sped up their healing, and those suffering hemorrhages in the gastrointestinal tract have willed their blood to stop.
The most remarkable example of this concerned a small study of people with a mysterious and illness known as fish-skin disease. For those afflicted with this condition, unsightly fish-like scales cover most of the body. In the study, five patients were hypnotized and told to focus on parts of their body and visualize it becoming normal. Within just a few weeks, 80% of each patient's body had become normal. The skin remained smooth and clear.
Clearly, during a relaxed, meditative state, conscious thought can convince the body to ensure any pain, cure many serious diseases, change virtually any condition.
Research has also shown that the electrical activity of thought and an action are also similar within the brain itself. When an EEG is used to measure the electrical activity of the brain, the brain waves are similar, whether we’re thinking about doing something or actually doing it.
We have remarkable powers of healing that have been largely untapped. Obviously if we have the ability to heal ourselves from within without the use of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, the medical industry is going to be none to happy to see its billion dollar industry disappear to our own healing powers. However, this power has been demonstrated in numerous studies and thousands of cases of spontaneous healing. Dr Magne is an expert in spontaneous healing and relates many stories and case studies in her ground-breaking book Cancer-Free-For-Life.
