Many people believe we at the mercy of our genetics – that whatever we’ve inherited from our parents is likely to pop up in our own bodies sooner or later. But that’s not the full story. Yes, our genetics might mean there is an underlying susceptibility to a particular type of physical weakness.
However, whether or not it is triggered is down to our own outlook and state of mind, and whether we choose to focus most of the time on thoughts that make us happy, or thoughts that make us unhappy. Stem cell biologist Dr Bruce Lipton explains the science of this in his book ‘The Biology of Belief’. He refers to this as Epigenetics, the study of how environmental factors such as behaviour, stress and lifestyle influence whether or not certain genes are turned on or off.
Of course, taking regular exercise, getting proper nutrition and drinking plenty of water are extremely important for us to be able to maintain a healthy body; but our mental and emotional outlook has far more influence than most people realise.
What you choose to think about in every moment is key. You might have lots of things in your life that make you happy and only one thing that makes you unhappy, but if you keep focusing on the one thing that makes you unhappy, as people often do, it brings down the energy of the rest. If you keep feeling stressed and anxious, or if you have fear of being ill, it starts to pinch off the flow of energy from your Inner Being - the part of you which is non-physical and is your life force and core spiritual self. Then when you feel ill, you start to focus on feeling bad and pinch off the energy even more. Therefore the body starts to get less and less of the energy it needs to sustain it. Without the energy it needs to sustain it, the body will decline, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly.
If you are able to focus on one of the hundreds of things in your head that do make you happy, in each of those moments your Inner Being can increase the flow and give your physical body more of the healing energy it needs. But if you are only able to focus on feeling ill and feeling unhappy because of it, then the more the restorative energy from the Inner Being gets pinched off. So laughter really is the greatest medicine!
A positive outlook and attitude of mind also has a huge influence on aging and susceptibility to illnesses associated with aging. Who would expect to be healthier? A person of 80 who continues to actively follow their interests and remains physically active or a person of 70 who feels they should sit in their chair all day because they are starting to feel tired and that’s what they saw their parents do?
When a sick person comes for energy healing, the connection to their own Inner Being is fully opened up for the duration of the session to flow the healing energy accessed by the healer. But it’s very important to also explain to them that whatever thought-forms they are creating determines whether they will stay healthy afterwards. (A thought-form is a thought that is often repeated and believed.) If they return to negative thinking, the benefits of the healing are likely to be lost. They might feel much better after healing, but if they are convinced the illness can’t be healed, they may soon return to the same state as before.
When people are in hospital ill, weak or even dying, and in much fear, they look at others in their beds and feel more fear around them, which pinches off even more their flow of positive energy from their Inner Being. This is why the elderly often worsen when they go into hospital.
So is it possible to heal others by our intention regardless of their state of mind? A person who is ill and has predominantly negative thought-forms might still be open enough to allow in the positive thought-forms of a healer or other well-wisher, which can have a beneficial effect on their physical bodies, if only temporarily. But it’s very important to tell them not to focus on fear and pain, but to think of any things that make them happy, such as hearing in their head a song they love, or seeing and tasting in their head a food they love. Then the Inner Being can again start to flow in enough restorative energy to help them recover.
