Healing through mind
    #11347223 - 10/29/09 08:28 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

This guy is very interesting. He is an old british guy who doesnt like the way medicine and society has turned in Britain. He has experience with a variety of subcultures and he talks about it. He also talks about his experience during the sixties. He is a bit eccentric in some of his views, he has a lot of videos at his youtube site.

:strokebeard3: Wow, gives whole new meaning to "the American dream" 

You know those little things your parents do that can drive you up the wall and make you cringe like listening to knives and forks being scraped on a dish?? 

Yea, dentures whistling.  Very hard to listen to ever since.  New High quality earbuds as well. :drgonz:

me too, I've been reading "the healers manual" by Ted Andrews lately, he goes through and explains the theories behind it and as far as I can tell, it works. Everything is just energy in some form including thoughts.

In the introduction to the first Law of One book, the Ra Material, the authors discuss their trip to South America and subsequent cure with a faith healer. Very interesting account, I'll try and find it online.

Robert Anton Wilson had some interesting thoughts on faith healing as being the activation of one of the four higher circuits. You can find it in Prometheus Rising.

I have had work done to me by shamans. They work wonders. But in a way I think they are able to open us up to the possibility and help us tune into our own circuits. So they trick us into healing ourselves.

Tricksters, you know.

Anyone who is finely tuned in will have tremendous effect on hir surroundings.

Of course the mind has the power to heal the body.  It's called the placebo effect.  Doctors have known about it for a long time.

Alexander Shulgin had a full blown trip on pure placebo. It blew his mind in many ways. :grin:

Indeed. Some speculate Shamans were very clever at projecting the placebo onto others. The Shaman was a skilled Magician.

Having been involved with the natural health care field for over 25 years I have come to certain conclusions.

As far as self healing goes I think it's entirely possible. However here's how I think it works. The body is a self regulating system. It tends to right itself. Stress and tensions inhibit this process. If a change in mental attitude reduces stress and body tension the body has a much better chance of righting itself.
