The power of a self-fulfilling prophecy is evident every time you think positive about yourself. Your mind is a great factor of your fate in terms of health, stress, and memory. You may not know this but the power of your subconscious mind is as important as the power of your food nutritional intake. Research proves that people who generally think positive receive better health and longer life.|
First of all, your subconscious mind takes hold of your emotions. Positive emotions contribute to better body chemistry. It is likened to a vehicle with clean fuel mechanism. Negative emotions like hate, anger, and sadness are like fuel impurities that clog the body’s chemical mechanism. In turn, it affects the health. Emotions are also capable of inflicting pseudo-illnesses on the body.
Ever heard of the placebo effect? This is one great example of the power of the mind to heal the body. Placebo effect is described as an improved medical condition after a pseudo-treatment is administered to the body where the patient believes he is already healed. I remember an episode of House MD when the Dr. Gregory House prescribed a vial of tablet candies to a man who has an imaginary headache. The man believed that the candies were medicine and was indeed healed. In reality, the man was just using his mind to cause pseudo illnesses and his subconscious is also responsible for his “recovery”.
The power of your subconscious mind is not a thing to be neglected. In pregnancy, for example, wives who were supported by their husbands during delivery generally claim to feel lesser pain than those that have no emotional support with them. This proves that a tiny change in mood affects the body’s tolerance of pain.
Your subconscious mind is also the keeper of memories. The subconscious is in charge of the long term memory. It is responsible for your association of meanings on things or connotation. For example, for a basketball player a ball is a source of livelihood. Non sports lover may associate a ball with shame for being one of the persons who don’t know how to play the sport.
People who know how to use their subconscious mind are able to create sharper judgment on situations. Scientists explain this as the ability to use full power of the brain. If you use all the parts of the brain (speech, emotion, memory etc…) to arrive at a conclusion, the chances that it will be logical is highly possible.
We now remember Timoun and Pumbaa of the Lion King. These 2 characters are famous for their philosophy “Hakuna Matata” or “No Worries”. No matter how dangerous their lives are because of lurking predators and forest hazards, they still maintain a positive outlook in life. They know that there are 2 ways to face problems: dread it or live with it. They choose to live with it because they know that problems are just a part of life and to drown life with these matters is like slowly committing suicide. The power of your subconscious mind can never be neglected and must be used to gain positive effects.
