The Power of Thoughts

Modern science has established that our thoughts influence our reality.
But just how powerful is a thought, and what are they capable of doing? Do thoughts heal? The power of placebos is a well proven medical reality.
The placebo effect occurs when a treatment or medication with no real therapeutic value (like a sugar pill) is given to a patient, and their symptoms still improve.
What is believed to occur with placebos is this: The patient thinks they have been given something to heal their condition, and because they expect to improve, they actually DO improve.
Doctor Bruce Lipton, a remarkable geneticist and researcher, claims that over 30% of all medical healings and surgeries are the result of the mind-controlled placebo effect.
He is also convinced that our thoughts actually control how our genes express themselves.
The case of people with multiple personalities is another interesting example.
The physical appearance (and even the actual health) of people with multiple personalities can instantly change depending on which of their personalities is present at any given time.
For example, studies have shown that one personality may have blue eyes, while the other has brown eyes.
There has even been a case where one personality had clinically serious cancer, while the other personality did not.
In short, the thoughts of the personality that is manifesting have an immediate and very real impact on their physical body.
Can thoughts change physical outcomes? Decades ago psychologists determined that some people can influence the outcome of a coin toss or a roll of dice simply by focusing their thoughts on a preferred outcome.
Similar experiments are currently being conducted by the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program using computerized random event generators.
The subjects use their thoughts to influence the subsequent random number sets.
The success of some people is so exact that their results are mathematically equivalent to winning the lottery 9 to 10 times in a row.
Do our thoughts affect other living things? Years ago biologist Clove Backster began to measure the responses of plants to stress.
He discovered that plants DO have increased stress levels during times of danger.
If an experimenter threatened to burn a plant with a match, for example, the plant registered a spike on the stress machine.
But what intrigued Backster even more was that plants registered a stress spike even if the experimenter only thought about burning the plant.
Other scientists have conducted studies that clearly indicate the power of thoughts (both positive and negative) on animals, bacteria, and even living cells.
Do our thoughts affect other people? Pairs of people (strangers unknown to each other) were placed in separate isolated rooms to determine if a stimulation of one would be felt by the other.
One person was subjected to images, sounds, or mild electric shock while the effect on the other person was measured.
Interestingly, both individuals experienced similar physical reactions and brainwave patterns during the stimulation - even though only one of them was stimulated.
Such synchronization of brainwave patterns and physical reactions is not normally found in people who have never met.
There is also growing evidence that remote healing and prayer have an impact on other human beings.
In one study, remote healers from various backgrounds sent healing thoughts to AIDS patients.
The remarkable results included improved T-cell counts, fewer illnesses and increased longevity.
Can thoughts transcend time and space? Remote Viewing (RV) is the ability to access and provide accurate information about an item or event that is located remote from the viewer.
An example might be a person who is sitting in an office in California accurately describing in detail a building in Australia that they have never visited or seen in any way.
Both USA and Russian experimenters and many university programs have long investigated remote viewing.
Although remote viewing is not 100% accurate and reproducible, there is strong scientific evidence to support it.
Russell Targ, the co-founder of Stanford Research institute, reports accuracy of up to 10,000 miles away, and abilities to describe the past, present and future events for target locations.
Do thoughts truly create our reality? Add up the above, and it becomes evident that we truly create our own reality, from our physical health...
to our ability to influence other people and even our environment.
But there is something else at work here.
That something else is the power of the subconscious mind, which operates much like a movie camera from birth on.
True, your thoughts DO create the many aspects of your reality (even how your genes turn on or off) - but it is ultimately the lifetime of memories and impressions stored in your subconscious mind that sets the stage for your thoughts.
This underscores the importance of becoming aware of our automatic beliefs and assumptions (which rise up from the subconscious mind), and replacing them with more positive and current thoughts.
Life is full of opportunities and second chances.
The secret is to be willing to take them!
