The Mind-Body Connection: Part 1 – Endometriosis

Endometriosis

In this series I will address specific disorders and diseases and discuss some of the underlying metaphysical (non-physical) factors that may be contributing towards them, as well new thought patterns (affirmations) to use for reprogramming the subconscious mind.

Remember, our bodies respond directly to our inner thoughts, beliefs and emotions, as well as to outer influences such as nutrition, how we treat our bodies, our environment and other possible external factors. A physical issue can be our body’s way of communicating to us that something in our inner world (our subconscious thought patterns or emotions) is not beneficial to us. Listening to our body’s messages can provide clues as to which thought patterns require reprogramming in order to help our bodies heal. Continue reading

On the other hand, bestselling author Louise Hay, claims that we are each responsible for all of our experiences, including our so-called illnesses, through our own thought patterns. This might sound far fetched, but neuroscience is now backing this up with a growing amount of research showing that when we consciously change our thoughts, we rewire the brain and establish new patterns. Neuroplasticity is, quite simply, the ability to alter (positively and negatively) the neural networks in our brains. One of the world’s most respected neuroscientists, Dr Richie Davidson, says that they have now discovered that even our genes are not fixed and can be influenced by our mental environment!
