Can Our Minds Heal Us?

Can Chinese healers reduce or eliminate a tumor in less than three minutes with the power of their thoughts? Your tyrannical left brain will tell you that's impossible. Your eyes and your right brain may tell you a different story.

OK. I'll give the standard disclaimer for our left-brained laws on topics like this. We are not giving medical advice here. We are not suggesting you stop standard treatments, fly to China, and undergo a treatment like the one described below. We are suggesting we should open our minds to see beyond our conditioned views of how the world works. Because, at the end of the day, those views are just a habitual way we have been taught to see the world.

Throughout the ages our greatest sages have repeated a profound truth almost like a mantra. Our minds and our thinking literally create our reality. Our modern mainstream scientific view scoffs at such insights, at least in the West. However, in other parts of the world, these are used to heal and create what we would call miracles.

In the opening chapter of the Buddhist Dhammapada, Buddha is quoted as stating, "All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts."

Proverbs 23:7 states, "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." James Allen, who can truly be called the father of modern positive thinking, extended the quote in his book, As a Man Thinketh. Allen wrote, "As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains."

Henry Ford once said, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right."

20th century sages continued to put forward the idea that the mind creates our reality.

  • Earl Nighingale famously said, "You become what you think about most of the time."
  • Napoleon Hill, who spent more than a decade hobnobbing with the wealthy and successful and then wrote about their methods, said, "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
  • Dr. Norman Vincent Peale was, perhaps, most direct of all. "Change your thoughts," he said, "and you change your world."

"OK," I can hear the skeptic saying, "people have held this idea that the mind creates reality throughout history. Where's the proof?"

Gregg Braden is an engineer by trade. He's spent the past couple of decades traveling the world to understand the power of the mind and the heart to heal us, change our lives for the better, and remake our world.

In this lecture, Braden shows a video of Chinese energy healers healing a tumor with the power of thought and the feeling of love in less than 3 minutes. Below the video, you can see a close up image of the tumor, circled, that was moved during the procedure.

My own experience over the years is that our thoughts do create a great deal of our world and our experience of it. Are we truly capable, operating with belief and determination, of creating miracles that transform ourselves and our world?

The skeptics will always say no. If we simply go with their answer, we eliminate the risk of disappointment that not all of our dreams will come true. We also eliminate the possibility of a higher potential and understanding that exceeds a merely atomic view of the world. Why must we limit ourselves to this singularly left-brained version of the world? This is the province of the ego, the tyrant, the Father Figure who wanted to hide information from us in The Garden.

In Matthew 21:21, Jesus unequivocally tells that a focused, faithful mind does have immense power. "Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done." Later, in Luke 17:6, Jesus said, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you."

Perhaps we need to right-brain rebellion. We need our creative, spiritual, holistic potential to see beyond the tyranny of appearances to the truth that underlies it. That's the world where our thoughts make our reality and eliminate tumors.

Our results won't be 100 percent because we will have to grow into these abilities. We cannot allow that fear to keep us limited. Never to start is always to fail.
