It’s All in Your Mind – and That’s the Good News

The most successful path to a wholesome life may be short, says European physician Roy Martina: the distance from the left brain to the right.

Eastern monks and Western yogis have spent centuries meditating to enable the creative right brain to serve as a healthy counterpoise to the usually dominant left brain and to synchronize both halves on the path to a deeper awareness. And a growing body of research shows that this harmonious balance does indeed create greater vitality and happiness.

The meditative path is a long one for most people. But Martina found that it is possible to activate the right brain through hypnosis, linking that hemisphere with higher consciousness and neutralizing the left brain. In that case, the most important thing isn’t the synchronicity between the halves of the brain, but the connection between the right half and higher consciousness.

The connection with higher consciousness overrides the ego-driven subconscious sabotage that keeps illness alive, Martina believes. This method adheres to Albert Einstein’s adage that a problem can only be solved on a different level from the one on which it arose. Healing takes place on a higher level than the physical level of illness. Martina says he has seen tumors disappear, kidney patients stop dialysis, cartilage regrow and prevent the need for a hip replacement operation and striking improvement in “impossible” diseases like Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.

Is the opposite also true? Do we create our own illness? Are we responsible for our suffering? “You create your disease,” Martina says. “But no one does that intentionally. If a child doesn’t work through an emotional trauma, it may express itself as a liver malfunction 30 years later. It’s not your fault. Most things happen on a subconscious level. And that’s why an aspirin or an operation doesn’t always help and why symptoms keep recurring.”

And that’s why working with the subconscious mind holds such potential for healing.

Vita P. You're right! many years ago, Oprah and Dr. Oz explained that the nerves in our brain are directly connected to our gut. it was stated that when we have anxiety, or overwhelmed thoughts, it causes the brain nerves to swell creating inflammation. The stress goes directly to our stomach causing it to inflame as well. It is also said, that when we are sitting in traffic, or at our desk, and we are under stress, the pituitary gland releases "Cortisol" or "Vitamind K." The Cotisol goes to our "dormant areas (aka: stomach, hips and thighs) and it just sits there. It is said to be the hardest "fat" to get rid of! ALL BECAUSE OF HOW WE THINK!

Thanks for sharing - I will point out that the West has recently discovered meditation and energy healing, therefore the 'Western Yogi' is a very new has been in the East where they found all this knowledge and the Western people have adopted it...
