Do You See It & Can You Feel It?

There are things we know to exist without really having seen them. What do I mean.  In the current age of technology we use things that we cannot see. Think of electricity running through wires allowing us to use televisions, toasters, charge our cell phones and more. We never see the electricity but we rely on it being there and use its service. Moreover, we never doubt its existence.

Clearly, there must be some other things that we do not see but can still benefit from. It is our power of visualization and positivity.  People who received a flu vaccine and reported a positive mood on a questionnaire had an enhanced response to the vaccine and produced more antibodies to the flu virus.
People with tumors who meditate had a better outcome on their tumor growth than those who did not. Further, think of the placebo effect, which has been a common phenomenon.  A beneficial effect is produced by a placebo drug or treatment, that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and is, therefore, related to the patient's belief in that treatment.

In our age of science and proofs, we should never discount the power of the human spirit to imagine something and make it a reality or the power of feeling in a good mood and how it impacts one's health.

Only you can make it happen for yourself. To get a little help, surround yourself with positive people, uplifting reading material and some time with nature.

Stay healthy & well,
