What is the Effect of Thought on Health and the Body?

In the book “As a Man Thinketh” published in 1902…James Allen writes about the effects of THOUGHT on Health and the Body….. 1902??? I am sure many people, especially those who were allopathically inclined, thought he was flat out nuts……

But today thank goodness most practitioners (not all) but most, view the body as a whole which of course includes the mind. Pretty obvious I must say, as stress is listed right up there with the top medical ailments, as a cause of many medical ailments. Yes, sure, there is physical stress…but I think today there is so much FEAR that the mind is in overload and if there is no outlet for the mind, such as, a friend to lend an ear, a supportive spouse or government, the illusion of job security…the mind can run rampant and cause visible physical symptoms both acute and chronic.

What can one do? Well, it may be handy to get yourself a copy of As a Man Thinketh and read the two short pages and gain volumes of insight into this epidemic.

Here are a couple of excerpts from the book to get you “thinking” differently, to change your physiology.

“Disease and Health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body. Thoughts of fear have been known to kill a man as speedily as a bullet, and they are continually killing thousands of people just as surely though less rapidly.(remember this was written in 1902) The people who live in fear of disease are the people who get it.”

(ex: my mother used to say to me repeatedly….”Mona, both your grandparents *her mom and dad* died of angina in their mid sixties, I wouldn’t be surprised if I do too.” Well my mom did not die of angina – but in her mid sixties she suffered a near death experience – a severe Angina attack with near fatal complications….her quality of life was not nearly the same after…..she passed away 7 years later.)

“Strong, pure and happy thoughts build up the body in vigour and grace. The body is a delicate and plastic instrument, which responds readily to the thoughts by which it is impressed, and habits of thought will produce their own effects, good or bad, upon it.”

“There is no physician like cheerful thought for dissipating the ills of the body: there is no comforter to compare with goodwill for dispersing the shadows of grief and sorrow. To live continually in thoughts of ill-will, cynicism, suspicion, and envy, is to be confined in a self-made prison hole. But to think well of all, to be cheerful with all, to patiently learn to find the good in all — such unselfish thoughts are the very portals of ( heaven) health: and to dwell day by day in thoughts of peace toward every creature will bring abounding peace to their possessor.”

You know yourself that there are circumstances and people who have hurt you, who have wronged you. Trust me when I say that releasing them from your thoughts in forgiveness and peace will be your remedy. Don’t get me wrong, you do not have to like them, love them, agree with them or have to be around them or the circumstance…..but by holding on to the ill will or ill thoughts – YOU are letting them live rent free at your expense….YOUR good health and your abundant and vibrant life……You choose your own Outcome…….

This is the easiest thing to do, change your thoughts ….this will be the hardest things to do, change your thoughts….But YOU are worth it!
