In previous posts, we have talked about the pro-cancer condition of the internal physical environment or “terrain” of our bodies. We have mentioned that, as Gary Sinclair points out in his Your Empowering Spirit, “Miracles are interactive events that have a beginning inside of you. At the level of desire, you create the seeds of miracles.” Sinclair’s own story of overcoming Multiple Sclerosis and a progressively debilitating congenital lung defect is his “case in point” because his level of desire was enormous. Am I saying you have to want to be well? I am saying you have to fully intend to become well in order to do so. Are there people who don’t have a high enough level of desire? There are, and they may not realize it. How can that be? They are caught up in the “drama of the trauma” and the disease has moved into their body and soul. How can God allow this to happen to a beloved one?
Dr. Caroline Leaf, world renown psychologist and author of Who Switched Off My Brain: Controlling Toxic Thoughts and Emotions, says in an interview for www.lifetoday.org, that “There is a point in your brain called the “free will” and it is a genetic structure….You can use that free will to accept or reject incoming information.” Dr. Leaf says that “The first and most advantageous point of control is when the thought is initially introduced to us. It’s at that point we that we can make a decision to accept or reject the information. She also explains that the second point of control is after the thought has been accepted. If thoughts slip through into our brain and become toxic, we need to start the rebuilding process. What it boils down to is a renewing of the mind process just like the Word of God says. We must think on things that are good, pure, of good report. God said that for a reason.
I am going to use “optimism” as a familiar term often considered “positive freewill” because most people view it that way pragmatically.
Dr. Larry Dossey, MD, in his book, The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things, (pp 19,20) quotes M. Seligman’s book, Learned Optimism, who gives four explanations:
“First, the brain registers the experience of optimism and reaches down via humoral, chemical, and nerve pathways to affect cellular function throughout the body, including the cardiac, immune, and other systems. Second, because optimism is correlated with motivation and taking action, optimistic people are more likely to want to be healthy and to believe they can be healthy. This makes it more likely that they will follow healthy regimens and medical advice. Third, optimists experience fewer noxious events in their lives than pessimists, including fewer threats to their health because their sense of control assures them that they can make a difference in what happens……Finally, optimists enjoy greater social support than pessimists, and evidence shows that even mild social interaction is a buffer against illness.”
The wise King Soloman, writer of the book of Proverbs in the Bible, put it simply: “For as a man thinks, so is he.” Prov 4:8.
Yes, Gary Sinclair is right, miracles ARE “inter-active” and the first action is to take every thought captive. The second is to realize the power of the words we speak or allow to be spoken to us.
People dealing with disease attacks need support from loved ones; however, they do NOT need sympathy. They need those around them who have faith in healing rather than those who fear based upon circumstances. They need laughter rather than long faces. They need compassion which is quite different from sympathy. If you are dealing with disease, it will help you to be aware of the importance of keeping positive energy around you. It may also mean avoiding negative energy and negative people who emit it.
And, always, that positive energy in your atmosphere can be boosted by listening to readings of God’s Word and keeping worshipful and praising music playing. The enemy of your soul cannot endure hanging around in such positive energy.
