Connection between Mind and Body


"Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day
become a reality." – Earl Nightingale

More and more people are becoming aware of the mind-body-soul connection, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Exactly what is it and where is it?

The relationship between what we think and believe and how we choose to act as described above is the essence of the mind body relationship. However, it goes much deeper that what is described. The concept of the mind body connection goes well beyond what we choose to do in the external world. The mind body connection is about how and what we think and believe creates our experiences and creates the reality we experience at each and every level of our being including the body and the conditions of the body.

Many ancient healing systems emphasize the interconnection between mind and body in healing. Famous theories and research indicates that good health depends on a balance of mind, body and environment.

Thought power is the key to creating your reality. Everything you perceive in the physical world has its origin in the invisible, inner world of your thoughts and beliefs.

It's all about learning to control the nature of your dominant, habitual thoughts. By doing so, you will be able to attract into your life that which you intend to have and experience as you come to know the Truth that your thoughts create your reality.

Power of Positive Thoughts & Emotions


Positive thoughts are far more powerful than negative thoughts. One positive thought can cancel out hundreds of negative ones. Your soul stops your lower and negative thoughts from becoming realities unless having them manifest will teach you something that will help you grow. You are loved and protected by your soul and the universe. As your thoughts become higher and more positive, your soul allows more and more of them to manifest.

The more you evolve the more power your thoughts have to create your reality, and the more responsibility you have to think in higher ways.

This state-dependent theory of mind-body communication and healing can be expressed as four integrated hypotheses:

  • The connection between mind and body occurs via the limbic-hypothalamic system.
  • Information transduction between mind and body is done by the limbic- hypothalamic encoding of information into state dependent memories, learning and behavior.
  • All healing methods of mind and body function by accessing and reframing these state dependent memories and behaviors that encode symptoms and problems.
  • Psychological and physiological healing is accomplished by accessing the state dependent encoding of mind-body symptoms and problems. The placebo response is a synergistic interaction of both healing methods.

The mind is about mental processes, thought and consciousness. The body is about the physical aspects of the brain-neurons and how the brain is structured. The mind-body problem is about how these two interact.

Human beings are material objects. We have weight, solidity and consist of a variety of solids, liquids and gases. However, unlike other material objects (e.g. rocks) humans also have the ability to form judgments and reason their existence.

Emotional intelligence is a topic that is attracting a considerable amount of popular attention. Some of the discussion is, in my view, superficial and misleading. In this section, we shall focus on the problems inherent in the manner in which the idea of emotional intelligence is being conceptualized and presented.

These if we provisionally understand critical thinking as Robert Ennis defines it, namely, as "rational reflective thinking concerned with what to do or believe," then it clearly implicitly implies the capacity to bring reason to bear on emotions, if for no other reason than that our emotions and feelings are deeply inter involved with our beliefs and actions. For example, if I FEEL fear, it is because I BELIEVE that I am being threatened. Therefore, I am likely to attack or flee. More on this point later
