Remember what Rene Descartes said: “I think, therefore, I am.”
The late comedienne Joan Rivers wrote in one of her books: “I, whine, therefore, I am.”
So enlightening and true.
If what you’re thinking internally is not what you wish to appear outwardly, change it. If it feels incongruent, where your conscious is in conflict with your subconscious, Quantum Techniques (QT) can help.
In the above video, Dr. Carolee Johnson, a QT practioner, says that “psychology becomes physiology. What we believe about ourselves alters the fact.”
Dr. Johnson went on to detail some case studies about how changing our psychology has a profound impact on our lives, not to mention on our health.
She cites research from Gail H. Ironson, M.D., Ph.D., who has over 100 publications in the field of behavior medicine, who found that having a negative belief increases a person’s likelihood that the patient will develop an opportunistic infection or die. “These beliefs predict disease progression even more strongly than depression,” says Dr. Johnson.
In another example, Dr. Johnson cites a 2007 Harvard study that examined the difference between physical exertion plus belief. In other words, the researchers aim to find out whether “the relationship between exercise and health is moderated by one’s mind-set.” Researchers divided the 84 female hotel housekeepers recruited for the study into two groups.
One group heard a brief presentation explaining that cleaning hotel rooms qualified as good exercise whereas the other group didn’t. Although their actual behavior didn’t change, 30 days after the intervention, the changes in the body of the women who had heard the presentation were significant.
The exercise informed women perceived themselves to be getting markedly more exercise than they had indicated before the presentation. Members of that group lost an average of about 2 pounds, lowered their blood pressure by almost 10 percent, dropped in body fat percentage, and found a decrease in their waist-to-hip ratio and body mass index.
This marked physiological change occurred in just 4 weeks after the researchers exposed the women to new beliefs about their level of physical activity.
What these two studies show is that beliefs have a powerful impact on our health and by changing them you can change your body and physiology.
If you have some health issues, more likely than not, you have some negative programming driving the illness. Of course, negative self-talk is just one causative factor. According to Dr. Johnson, making just one small change in this program can lead to a significant change in your health.
Dr. Johnson also says:
“And, this is why Quantum Techniques is so effective for healing the body. We’re finding the negative programming that’s running in the background and changing it. And these psychological changes in beliefs and emotionally charged data that are running in our unconscious change the physiology of your body, allowing it to heal.”
As you can see, beliefs are powerful. But, the good news is that beliefs can change when you’re willing and are ready to change them.
