Consciousness is a force that most of us undervalue. Generally we do not focus our inner awareness or use its real power, even in the most difficult moments of crisis. That may account for why “miracle” cures are greeted with a mixture of awe, disbelief, and reverence. Yet, everyone possesses consciousness. Perhaps these miracles are extensions of normal abilities.
What marks a survivor as opposed to a non-survivor? Apparently the successful patients have learned to motivate their own healing, and the most successful have gone much further than that. They have found the secret of quantum healing. They are the geniuses of the mind-body connection.
Modern science cannot even begin to duplicate their cures, because no cure that relies on drugs or surgery is so precisely timed, so beautifully coordinated, so benign and free of side effects, so effortless as theirs. Their ability springs from a level so deep that you cannot go any deeper. If we knew what their brains were doing to motivate their bodies, we would have the basic unit of the healing process in our hands.
As yet, medicine has not taken the quantum leap, and the word quantum has no clinical application. Because quantum physics works with ultra-high-speed accelerators, you may think that quantum healing uses radioisotopes or X rays. But that is the opposite of what it means.
The deepest core of the mind-body system is where healing begins. To go there and learn to promote the healing response, you must get past all the grosser levels of the body–cells, tissues, organs, and systems–and arrive at the junction point between mind and matter, the point where consciousness actually starts to have an effect.
