Autosuggestion: How to Use This Powerful Mind Tool

autosuggestion mind powerWhen we face obstacles in our lives we not always try to overcome them by ourselves, but we rather tend to believe that we will certainly get some help from the world.

Suggestion, which is a pretty powerful tool, plays a very important role here.

Mind-Blowing Experiment That Shows How the Mind Affects the Body

mind body effectIn 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.

Let’s begin…
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

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
