The Biology of Belief
You can choose what to see. You can filter your life with rose-coloured beliefs that will help our body grow or you can use a dark filter that turns everything black and makes your body/mind more susceptible to disease.
You can live a life of fear or live a life of love. You have the choice! I can tell you that if you choose to see a world full of love, your body will respond by growing in health. If you choose to believe that you live in a dark world full of fear, your body’s health will be compromised as you physiologically close yourself down in a protection response.
Learning how to harness your mind to promote growth is the secret of life. It is not our genes but our beliefs that controls our lives….Oh ye of little belief!
Living in love and living in fear create opposite effects in the body and in the mind.
Not only is there nothing wrong with going through life wearing the proverbial rose-coloured glasses, in fact, those rose-coloured glasses are necessary for your cells to thrive. Positive thoughts are a biological mandate for a happy, healthy life.
In the words of Mahatma Ghandi:
“Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”
