It is true that drugs play a key role in the relief from pain, but in cases of chronic pain taking them may be accompanied by serious side effects.
Fortunately, numerous studies have shown that there are alternative methods to treat pain, which have to do with concentration and mind power.
1. Thinking about food
Research at the University of Wisconsin showed that when one thinks of his favorite food, the intensity of pain decreases. Chocolate was proved to be the favorite food fantasy.
2. Controlled breathing
Deep diaphragmatic breathing can be very helpful, since it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which Continue reading
In this article I will show you a small, simple experiment that anyone can do to see with his own eyes how the mind affects the body. We all know the most famous principle of quantum physics which states that the observer affects the observed. There are thousands of books and articles on how the mind generates almost all diseases in our body.
With this simple experiment you will see what happens in life or, in particular, how the quality of your thoughts is implemented in your body.
Close your eyes… make some deep breaths and relax your body. If you have never performed any form of relaxation techniques before, then you can use your breath. Focus on your breathing and notice how your body expands during inhalation and how it contracts during exhalation. It is very likely that after about 10 cycles of breaths you will be relaxed enough.
If this has not happened sufficiently, you can relax your body “manually”. Focus your attention on the bottom of your feet and visualize that with each inhalation you get golden light, which goes to your feet, and with each exhalation the tension is removed from your feet. Do as many cycles as necessary until you feel completely relaxed, and then proceed to Continue reading
The most important thing about the subconscious mind you need to know is that it is always “on”. That is, it is active day and night, regardless of whether you are doing. The subconscious mind controls your body. You cannot hear this silent inner process with your conscious effort. You need to start taking care of your subconscious mind. It is vital to maintain your mind in a state of expectation of only good events and make the usual mode of your thinking based solely on loyalty, justice and love.
Faith and belief are the foundation of the subconscious. Do not forget that “you will be rewarded according to your faith”.
A Protestant minister who suffered from lung cancer wrote about his methods of transferring thoughts of perfect health into his subconscious mind: “Two or three times a day, I put my body and soul in a relaxed state, repeating these words: “My feet are completely relaxed, my legs are relaxed. Right now my stomach muscles are relaxing. My heart is beating quietly, my breathing is calm and relaxed. My head is completely relaxed, my whole body is completely relaxed and calm.” After about five minutes, when I got into a drowsy, sleepy state, I repeated: Continue reading
Meditation teaches to focus, reduces stress, helps get rid of bad habits, improves memory and self-control, lowers blood pressure, normalizes metabolism, lowers the heart rate, and many more.
1. Spend on meditation at least 2 minutes a day
That will be quite enough. It would be silly to say that you have no time to meditate. Two minutes – it’s very, very little! So no excuses!
2. Create a ritual
Link your meditation to a particular time of the day or to some action. For example, in the early morning when Continue reading
Most likely you’ve experienced a sudden strange sensation of falling when going to sleep, which rudely awakens you. In reality it is not a dream of falling, which happens in deep sleep, but an instant physical sensation that wakes us and is accompanied by a hallucination, not a dream.
To better understand this phenomenon, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of sleep.
Dream begins in a part of the brain called reticular formation, which sends signals to the spinal cord to relax the muscles and suppress stimuli. The jerk that you feel when you wake up does not wake you when you have already fallen asleep, because the body absorbs its own consciousness. Everyone agrees with this. But then the scientists’ opinions differ. Here are 3 possible explanations of this phenomenon: Continue reading
Beethoven once said, “Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.” As it turns out, music enhances learning, too. According to a College Entrance Exam Board Service study, students involved in musical extracurricular activities scored 51 points higher on the verbal portion of the SAT exams and 39 points higher on math on the SAT exams.  Through this and other research findings, educators believe that music relaxes, soothes, and helps people concentrate better, making it the perfect study companion to diminish distractions and keep students learning.
In Don Campbell’s book The Mozart Effect, Campbell has condensed research on the topic to enlighten readers about how music affects their brain. Continue reading
What is a wish? It is your thoughts that arise in your mind, and that can become a reality, thanks to you and that inner power that you possess. Researchers have long studied the human subconscious and made the following discovery: any thought just like a magnet attracts and transforms the outside world.
And it is very joyful discovery, since it gives a person the tremendous power and creative energy and makes the fulfillment of wishes possible for everyone.
In order to enhance this power of thought you need to train your mind and increase energy every day, because one’s wishes become a reality much faster if they are supported by a large supply of inner strength and a positive attitude.
What destroys your energy and your power of thought?
All sorts of negative thinking – fears, doubts, disturbing thoughts – take away your energy, so your mind should be exempt from such beliefs. Try to think positively, switching to the thoughts full of positive energy and light. Continue reading

Hypnosis is a great healing instrument used by psychologists. Also hypnosis can be used in general medicine too, for instance, for calming the physical pain.
What is hypnosis? It is a form of therapy in which the therapist sends affirmations or suggestions to the client who is in a deep relaxation state.
