Your mind and body are very closely linked. Your thoughts and emotions can have a physical effect on your body.
Can you really make the law of attraction for health work in your favour? Keep reading as I share powerful tips that may help you improve your health..
Feeling depressed or worried can trigger minor ailments such as itchy spots or mouth ulcers. I used to regularly suffer from migraines if I was worrying over something or felt anxious.
Stress can have a direct affect on blood pressure and heart rate. So staying calm will greatly reduce the risk of a stroke, a lesson I learned only too well 3 years ago. Thankfully I’m almost fully recovered, but never let anything make me worry anymore. Health is far more important!
Dwelling on feeling ill can often worsen symptoms. Have you ever noticed that if you get a cold, talking about it and saying how bad you feel can make it ten times worse? Focusing on your cold can actually increase the time it takes to feel better.
Instead of thinking how bad your head hurts or how constant sneezing is making you feel poorly, focus on feeling full of energy instead. I know you may not feel healthy if you have a bad cold, but visualizing your body full of vitality may help shorten your recovery time.
To do this take a few deep breaths and imagine a beam of pure white light entering your body through the top of your head, and zapping all your cold germs. You’re now feeling full of life and vigor again. Do this simple exercise repeatedly during the day as well as drink plenty of water to flush out harmful toxins.
If you get anything more than a minor ailment always go to the doctor. You can still practice visualization while you’re taking medication. There are illnesses and conditions that can’t be cured, but keeping an upbeat positive attitude may help you heal mentally and view it as a challenge rather than a curse.
The effect of stress on health
As I mentioned previously one of the worst things for your health is stress and anxiety. Negative thoughts and constant worry can cause high blood pressure, strokes, heart disease, and diabetes. Your mind directly affects your physical health, so by working on your mind you can improve your overall health and wellbeing. Click here to read my post on how to stop worrying and start living
Small amounts of stress can be good for you. It motivates you to take action and is a driving force. For example, if you have a busy schedule with a lot of tasks to complete, stress will drive you on to work quicker.
In prehistoric times stress and the release of adrenalin could save your life if you were being chased by wild animals, or needed to hunt for food. In modern times thankfully most of us don’t have those problems but your body is still producing adrenalin.
Law of attraction for health tips to boost your immune system
As I’ve mentioned before in this post your thoughts have a direct effect on your physical health. No matter what problems are going on in your life always find ways to solve them as quickly as possible, and find something positive about them.
For example you could see a problem as being a lesson sent to test your resolve or view it with a glass half full not empty mindset. Focus on gratitude and your problems will diminish very quickly.
Showing gratitude for all the good things in your life is a very powerful way to improve health and wellbeing. Even a slight shift in your attitude and being more positive will boost your immune system. You’ll feel happier and more relaxed.
Go outside for a walk every day. Even if the weather isn’t perfect as you’ll feel energized. Exercise releases feel good hormones such as serotonin and endorphins making you feel good about things and improving your wellbeing.
Heal your body with meditation
One of the best ways to boost your health is through meditation. Just 20 minutes of meditation a day can have major health benefits including lowering blood pressure and improving your quality of sleep. While you’re meditating imagine every cell in your body bursting with health and vitality. Controlling the breath is a big part of meditation. When you focus on the breath your heart rate slows down, and you can’t help but feel calmer.
This is why your blood pressure becomes lower. Hypertension is a very dangerous condition and if you suffer from it you’ll need medication, but introducing a daily regime of meditation may help to lower it naturally.
Playing gentle relaxing music in the background will help you focus and calm the mind. Focusing on the breath can also help to slow down your thoughts. If you’re stressed or anxious your mind will be racing with hundreds of thoughts, all competing for your attention
Find a comfortable place to meditate and wear loose clothing. Make sure you’re not going to be disturbed, and allow yourself 10 minutes of quiet time. As you’re breathing in deeply visualize yourself surrounded by pure white light, and breathe in it’s healing energy. As you breathe out imagine you’re exhaling negative, toxic energy.
The power of visualization in healing
Visualization is a very powerful tool, and constant daily practice can reap big rewards. If you’re tired and need to lose weight visualize yourself brimming with vitality. Imagine your body as being slim and youthful. The subconscious mind is very powerful and accepts whatever you tell it as being real.
The only thing though is that you truly have to believe in whatever it is you want to manifest. If you have underlying negative beliefs then your subconscious mind may fight against, and sabotage any attempts to change your reality.
Creating a vision board will help you to affirm your goals. Find photos from magazines or those you’ve taken that show fit, active and healthy people. Images of places you want to travel to, and anything that aligns with your goals of good health and wellbeing.
Add affirmations as well. eg “I am bursting with health and energy,” or “I avoid junk food. I eat healthy, nutritious food that’s good for my body and drink plenty of water to hydrate and cleanse every cell” Keep your vision board nearby during the day and spend time looking at the images and reading the text.
The power of the placebo effect
The placebo effect is proof that visualization can alleviate and even cure some conditions. Many trials are carried out on people suffering a range of health conditions. Some are given medicine and others placebos that will have no effect whatsoever. In some cases those who took dummy pills reported improvements. Findings can conclude that believing the pills will make them better was actually curing them. They expected and visualized that they’d feel better and that became a reality.
Think yourself young and healthy
Of course getting older is inevitable and we can’t stop time, but keeping a happy and positive outlook can not only make you look younger, but also feel healthier.
If you believe yourself to be old then you will project this to the outside world. it will show in your face in the form of frown lines and a downbeat look. You may even dress old because you see a lot of fashion as being too young for you. This in itself can have an impact on your health.
Thinking yourself as being too old for different things and expecting health problems associated with old age could well manifest some of them. Resigning yourself to failing memory may cause you to start forgetting things. You hear people talk about old age and memory loss as if it’s inevitable. Read my blog post to learn how to stay young and defy age!
Anticipating or worrying that you’ll get ill means that you’re thinking about it, and what you think about becomes your reality
One of the best antiaging tips is to smile, as it instantly lifts your face making you look younger. Laughter releases endorphins, great for pain relief and making you feel good. Regular meditation will help you de stress, and yoga will keep you supple.
I hope my post has given you inspiration on how you can make the law of attraction for health work in your favour.
