How to Master The Placebo Effect
September 6, 2013 3 Comments
The placebo effect is a rather interesting topic to discuss having prior knowledge and understanding the infinite potential of the human mind. You get to believe whatever you want, good or bad, positive or negative. If you believe something to be beneficial to you, it will. If you believe you are limited in what you can do in life, well guess what? You will experience various roadblocks that confirm this belief until you decide to consciously overcome them.
What is The Placebo Effect?
A placebo is a simulated or otherwise medically ineffectual treatment for a disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the recipient. Sometimes patients given a placebo treatment will have a perceived or actual improvement in a medical condition, a phenomenon commonly called the placebo effect. Why does the placebo effect work? Because the human mind can be trained to heal itself through the power of intention and belief.
There is simply no explanation for how a placebo actually works, but we know for sure that it does. When people discredit the power of the placebo, they are simply demonstrating their unawareness of reality.
Taking a “pill” with the belief that it will heal you works whether or not there is anything in the pill. You manifest healing through the belief that you will in fact be healed. Who is the real healer? The doctor or the patient? Ultimately the patient in every case, the doctor is simply there to assist in the process.
Become Your Own Therapist
You are your own doctor, healer, and therapist. You know yourself better than anyone else, so it is up to you to decide to improve your life if you so desire. Recognize areas of your life that bother you. Why do these aspects of your life bother you? Is there anything you can do to remove the fear and insecurity from your mind? You can start by becoming aware that you have the power to heal yourself without the use of any “pills.”
Once aware, healing requires action. Take action by learning about techniques you can use to remove negativity from your life. You can consciously create your own placebo effect by committing to improvement. Your mind is like a sponge, it absorbs whatever information you put into it. With useful, valuable, positive information, the mind acts on auto-pilot to create a positive experience of reality for you. You are the dreamer, you live in a subjective reality. This subjective reality is unique to you and you only, no two people think alike.
Mastering The Placebo Effect
What kind of “pills” are you going to prescribe yourself? What kind of belief systems are you going to install into your mind? What kind of positive, enriching thoughts do you want to have on auto-pilot throughout your day? How are you going to think in terms of abundance, rather than scarcity?
List some beliefs you have about yourself. Be honest, they all wont be positive….for now. Become aware of the negative dis-empowering beliefs you have, and decide to eliminate them forever. Decide that they won’t be able to affect you anymore. Recognize that negative beliefs are simply an illusion you believe about your life. Unsubscribe from the illusion, and open your eyes to the infinite possibilities in front of you.
