I’ve been sick since yesterday and spent the night tossing and turning with a fever/achy throat. In the middle of all of that I remembered something I read a long time ago: your mind is SO powerful that you can control not only your emotions and what they attract, but you also have the power to control your health.
If you have a disease or feel pain, and someone asks you, “how are you feeling?” and you reply “Omg awful. It’s not getting any better. I just get worse and worse and everything hurts”.... YOUR BODY IS LISTENING. If you put it in your head that you’re not healing, you either won’t, or the processes will take much much longer.
SO, I took this thought and applied it to myself. 1- I absolutely hate calling out of work, 2- I didn’t want to spend all day in bed feeling like complete crap. So even though I had the worst throat ache, was soaked in sweat, and felt zoned out, I started telling myself, “no, you’re fine. You feel great. This is nothing. You’ll wake up in the morning and feel normal.” 😂 I kept repeating it in my mind over and over.
Now, I didn’t just miraculously wake up feeling perfect. My throat still hurt and I felt like everything was moving in slow motion lol. BUT, my fever had gone away. Throughout the morning I kept getting thoughts about how I was sick, but I’d instantly say “no no no, you’re great.” Guys, I promise you by 1pm I felt like a completely different person than when I woke up. My throat ache was gone, my voice was back, no more coughing, and I was awake and alert. I KNOW, this must sound like a bunch of mumbo jumbo. But I had to share because we live so unaware of how powerful we are. I’ve been sick like this before and it’s always turned into days of feeling miserable. And here I am, not feeling 100% yet, but killed my workout, and now getting my hair done ☺️ I used my lunch time to look more into this psychology, and found an interesting article, posted the link in my bio if anyone wants to actually read about it!
Moral of the story: Even if a doctor tells you Hey you’re terminally ill, there’s no cure for you. DONT GIVE IN TO THAT MENTALITY! You’ll literally deteriorate yourself. You attract what you tell yourself.
