The power of the mind

Wow!  I can’t believe it’s been 5 months since I wrote anything.  There have been a few times where I’ve thought about things to write and the synchronicity of the past week has pushed me into action!

Since I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I could never understand why my father wasn’t diabetic as well.  His diet is filled with fat laden processed crap and has been for a long time.  He is overweight as well.  This injustice, in my thinking, used to infuriate me because I couldn’t figure out why he didn’t have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.  Last week, my husband, one of our daughters and I stayed with him for two nights while attending an orientation at my daughters soon to be college.  During one of the evenings he says to me “Did your mom tell you about my blood work?”.  She hadn’t so he proceeded to say to me that his doctor had talked him into having a physical since he hadn’t had one in about 10 years.  I’m thinking “Oh, finally, his diet is going to catch up to him”.  WRONG!!!!!  My father’s blood work was PERFECT!!!  No high cholesterol, no high blood pressure, no diabetes!!!!  In fact the only thing that was “off” on his blood work was he was vitamin B12 deficient!!!!!  I was, needless to say, completely dumbfounded and shocked (and initially really pissed!).  How could this be???  For the past almost 7 years I have lived and believed in our vegan diet.  How can this man, who eats CRAP have better blood work than me???

So, we start talking about it and to be perfectly honest I think he was a little shocked as well.  He chalks it up to two things:  Good genes (he was adopted so we aren’t sure exactly how good his genes are although his sister (biological) is in her 80’s and doesn’t have any health concerns that I’m aware of and we know that one of his biological uncles lived well into his 90’s) and VISUALIZATION!!!!!  My father, for I don’t know how long, has practiced visualization.  He visualizes an army of little scuba divers going through his arteries and veins scraping any plaque off and carrying it out of his system.  He visualizes these little armies throughout his body keeping him healthy.

About 10 years ago, or maybe longer, there was a movie that came out called “The Secret”.  The bottom line message of this movie was that thoughts become things and that if we could learn to control our thoughts our external, and in my father’s case internal, world would change for the better.  My sister recently invited my mother and I to a workshop based on this “thoughts become things” concept.  We are required to watch a 9 hour online video course prior to going to the workshop in June.  The gentleman who is presenting this workshop has documented scientific proof of “miracles” happening to lots of people just because they were able to control and change their thought patterns!

The synchronicity of my father’s blood work “miracle” and our discussion of his visualization practice along with the invitation from my sister to attend this workshop within 24 hours of each other, said to me that the Universe was trying to tell me something and get my attention.  So, I decided to start putting my father’s visualization practice to work.

For the past 3 years I have been in chronic pain that has, for the past year, been getting increasingly worse.  I have been to various doctors that don’t have any answers for me and haven’t provided much assistance except to put me on prescription pain medication (which I won’t take).  When I got home from my dad’s last week, I decided every night to visualize an army of little people inside my body putting the muscles, tendons and ligaments in my legs (where a majority of the pain is) through an old fashioned taffy puller!  It’s the kind of machine that they used to (I don’t know if they still do) use to make taffy and it would pull and stretch the taffy.   A week later and I am almost back to where I was when I first started noticing the pain!!!!!!

So, for the next few months I will be working on a few different things.  I’m working on a NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) practitioner online course that my sister has designed; the online course, book and the in person workshop that my sister invited me to and the continued use of my visualizations.  By the end of the summer I should be well on my way to creating the reality and future I want for myself!  Stay tuned for the adventure as I will be blogging about my discoveries and miracles!


One thought on “The power of the mind

  1. YES! It’s the same reason I wanted to go to the progressive workshop in Las Vegas – get control over my thoughts – mostly the unconscious ones I don’t know are happening. Dad’s visualisation exercises prove to me that it works because his diet and lifestyle certainly would be pointing him in another direction! I’m very excited about what is to come – for both of us (and Mom too!)!
