“The fact that the mind rules the body is, in spite of its neglect by biology and medicine, the most fundamental fact which we know about the process of life.
— Franz Alexander, M. D.
I remember a speaker at the annual Psychology seminar in 1994 in my college who said, “if you want, your mind can be your best friend and if you want, your mind can be your worst enemy”. I felt and still feel a deep resonance with his words.
This is not to say that medicines and surgery do not have their place. When someone has been out of whack with their alignment for a long time on one or many topics (and thereby, are ill), they may need to take medicine or undergo surgery in order to buy time. In the time that they buy, they can choose to initiate working on feeling better generally. When feeling better and stronger generally, if they feel ready, they can choose to change their vibrations on that topic (or topics) which they have not been been good about for quite some time.
Here I would also like to say that there is nothing wrong in being out of whack with one’s alignment on any topic (or topics). We are all human and it’s okay. Being the creators that we all are, there will always be something to move toward for each one of us. Being kind and gentle with ourselves helps in getting back into alignment whenever we feel ready for it.
