Biology of Belief

So we’ve established a connection between emotions and illness--- but can emotions be a predictor of cancer?

According to Bernie Segal, a cancer doctor and surgeon for over 40 years, the answer is yes.  The connection is so strong that a psychological questionnaire is often a better predictor of cancer than a physician’s physical exam!

Let’s first take a look at the biology of cancer.  It is well understood that oncogenes play a role in cancer.   An oncogene is a gene that contributes to converting a normal cell into a cancer cell.  If these genes were the only predictor of cancer, patients would develop tumors throughout the body simultaneously---but this is not the case!  There is usually one area that has psychological significance to the patient where the cancer forms.  This is called the target organ (Love, Medicine, and Miracles pg. 90).

The link between cancer and emotions has been known since 1926 when Elida Evans did the Psychological Study of Cancer and found emotional loss---is---a---predictor---of--- cancer!   More recently, Marjorie and Claus Bahnson developed a questionnaire that is 88% accurate in assessing for cancer and another researcher was able to pick out malignancies based on patients perceived hopeless and recent emotional loss.

Doesn’t this all sound familiar?  Isn’t this very similar to the question of why don’t we get sick all the time if we are constantly exposed to germs?  What’s causing us to be more susceptible to illness more than other times?

It’s because our thinking strongly influences our biology!  Did you know it's possible for a person under anesthesia, to change her heartbeat from 130 beats per minute to 85 beats per minute on command!!!

What’s so wonderful about these revelations---mind over body---is that it has lead many people to survive what is deemed a terminal illness!  Dr. Bernie Segal understood this mind body connection so well that he formed ECaP (Exceptional Cancer Patients) to provide a therapeutic environment to confront the psychological issues most cancer patients face.  This support group often lead to personal change, healing and hope.

These patients had to do the dirty work.  They rolled up their sleeves, looked at the unhealthy patterns in their life and changed them.  Sometimes it meant leaving a spouse, changing careers, or voicing their concerns to family---but it saved their life.

They didn’t rely on something or someone outside of them to “fix” them.  They took responsibility for their emotions and how they were manifesting in their bodies.  They listened to their bodies.

Doctors can minimize discomfort and cover up wounds--- but what people need most is hope---to give us the confidence to go within---the place of true healing.

I love a good skeptic.  Especially the nuclear physicist kind.

Recently I found myself in conversation with one trying to explain energy healing.  They know splitting an atom (which is essentially making something less than what it was!) results in more than they can handle--- but energy healing under the very same sky is impossible!  I think not!

We all hear people say things like, “I like her energy,” “she’s really positive,” “I got a good vibe from her,” or “I’m getting mixed signals” ---yet many can’t seem to believe our energy is readable.

Here’s the physics of it all-- our bodies essentially flash in and out of existence.  Yeah, I know, hard to believe.  This is because on the most basic level, we are composed of atoms and the components of an atom flash in and out of existence.

From a biological view, each strand of DNA, contracts several BILLION times a second!  That’s just amazing! Each contraction releases a photon of light carrying all your genetic information!

It turns out the brain doesn’t have the circuitry (RAM) to be able to process all this information and store it.  So it is released from the body in frequencies.  The information is then stored in the electromagnetic field (the aura) that encapsulates the human body.  This field is photographable, measurable and well documented to exist.

Essentially, our field (aura) is a magnet holding on to all our information.  Scientists know this because they have seen Alzheimer patients (missing 40% of their brain) be able to recall information from their past under hypnosis---with great clarity!!!  That means that the information is being stored outside of the brain.

If our information is suspended in the air like radio waves, it’s understandable that we could tune into these energy frequencies and listen to what’s going on.  Some refer to us as human antennas.

We’ve probably all seen a mangled antenna incapable of receiving a radio station--- our bodies are the same.  If they are “mangled” by inappropriate diet, lack of exercise, and detrimental thoughts, we aren’t going to be clear receivers of guidance.

To be able to hear clear guidance you have to treat your antennae really well.  I look at my body like my instrument.  That’s why I have become so adept at sensing energy.  I continually feed my mind, body, and spirit with things that create alignment so that I am able to clearly differentiate between my body’s energy and others’.  I also do this so that I am in vibrational alignment with the things I want in life.

If the Law of Attraction isn’t working for you, your antennae might need adjusting!
