Learning to be more in control of your mind can lead to huge life benefits | ⠀
Mind Over Matter⠀
Most of us have heard stories involving mind over matter principles. People walking over hot coals is the first one that pops into my mind. Such a feat is rather extreme and far removed from our daily lives, but learning to harness the power of the mind is a sure way to improve your life! Biofeedback, hypnosis, and the Relaxation Response are three effective approaches (among many) to use to utilize our minds more efficiently. Before discussing the approaches just mentioned, I’d like to look at a few examples of mind over matter in action, so to speak, to give more credence to the practice.⠀
The first example comes from Michael Talbot’s The Holographic Universe. In the book he relates the story of Jack Schwarz, a Dutch-born author and lecturer who was able to willfully control his body’s internal biological processes (p. 102). In the 1970’s Mr. Schwarz submitted to examination by doctors at the Menninger Foundation, among others. In these studies, large, six-inch sailmaker’s needles were stuck completely through Schwarz’s arms without bleeding, without flinching on the part of Schwarz, and without his producing any beta brain waves as would be expected from a person in pain! He did not bleed when the needles were removed, and the puncture holes closed up tightly. Additionally, Mr. Schwarz altered his brain wave rhythms at will, held burning cigarettes against his flesh without injury, and carried live coals in his hands. He stated that he had learned to control pain while held in a Nazi concentration camp, and that it was his belief that anyone can learn voluntary control of their body (p. 103).⠀
