vWe do ourselves a great disservice when we believe that we have a particular sickness and call it by name. When we do this we are discounting the fact that each of us is a unique being who has had different experiences, different parents, different genetics, and so forth that brought us to the state of imbalance we are dealing with. By believing what a doctor or someone else tells us about ourselves we lump ourselves in with everyone else who has ever had similar symptoms to ours, not realizing that our mind, in it's infinite wisdom, will begin to send messages to our body, telling it to create the symptoms we are believing in. And, since our thoughts are always creating our experiences, our body will immediately comply with the mind's wishes and begin to manifest the disease we believe we have.
Wouldn't it be better to hold a vision of ourself in our highest light and manifest that message instead?
Many years ago the Rosicrucians set up experiments to show us the power that our thoughts have upon our body. They hypnotized people and then approached them with a normal pencil or pen, telling them that the pen was a red hot poker, like a branding iron. Then they touched the pen to the person's arm and guess what? The person would immediately cry out in pain and a blister began to form. Within moments, the arm took on all the physical characteristics of having been burned.
Stories like this have been hidden from us, but their message is clear. We human beings are very suggestible and it serves us well to remember that we are each unique. Likewise, it does not serve us to believe everything everyone else tells us about ourselves. Not only could their suggestions be entirely wrong, but if we believe them, we run the risk of manifesting all sorts of things we're apt to wish we'd stayed away from.
