Here is an extraordinary new approach to healing by an extraordinary physician-writer -- a book filled with the mystery, wonder, and hope of people who have experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from cancer and other serious illnesses.
Dr. Deepak Chopra, a respected New England endocrinologist, began his search for answers when he saw patients in his own practice who completely recovered after being given only a few months to live. In the mid-1980's he returned to his native India to explore Aruyveda, humanities most ancient healing tradition. Now he has brought together the current research of Wetern medicine, neuoscience, and physics with the insights of Ayurvedic theory to show that the human body is controlled by a "network of intelligence" grounded in quantum reality. Not a superficial psychological state, this intelligence lies deep enough to change the basic pattenrs that design our physiology -- with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, and even aging itself. in this inspiring and pioneering work, Dr. Chopra offers us both a fascinating intellectual journey and a deeply moving chronicle of hope and healing.
Chopra sifts through some studies, as well as uses examples known to him to showcase that the power of the mind is vital in healing. In fact, in some cases it could be said to be the main driver in someone's ability to heal.
Although this particular book was published over two decades ago, the information still holds as true now as it did back then. Serendipitously, more and more studies have come about showing the inherent link between the mind and body and how that can play a crucial role in the art of healing.
Unfortunately, the opposite is also true. While the author doesn't discuss this, it has been discussed elsewhere however. Individuals that allow their thoughts to err into more detrimental states can set themselves up for failure at the outset. Or sometimes, doctors will tell people that "they can't be cured" as happens to so many, and people run with those beliefs [and they are beliefs, because this has been proven wrong a lot more than people realize, and am a living example of this myself] all the way beyond the cliff's edge.
One of my favorite parts of the book, although not explored at length, was delving into the power of meditation. As some of you may know, meditation has outstanding healing powers, and it has helped me in conquering disease. It wasn't used by itself however, but it was an integral component in my healing repertoire and will always will be part of my life. Let's digress, though.
In its totality, the book was good, but not great. If you've researched this subject the book won't have a lot that you probably won't know, or have already come to the conclusion too yourself. If you haven't however, this book features information that should be pondered deeply by society, for its implications spawn at warp speed and its ramifications are deep in scope.
As a side note, a new revised and updated version is available. Although haven't read it myself, it might be a decent jump-off point for individuals seeking additional information.
Regardless, please keep in mind, the thoughts we plant in our minds ultimately may grow into healing, or disease.
What I especially enjoyed was his description of the quantum intelligence within us.
He explains that our bodies cells naturally regenerate over time--time and time again. A traumatic event that he/she experiences at one point in time can be relived dozens of years later--and can be truly re-experienced emotionally as if the trauma has just again occurred. Chopra poses the question ' if the cells that were present during the actual traumatic event have since died and have been regenerated--where then is the being drawing the emotions from the past from?'...(I ask not to be quoted as I am not quoting Chopra word for word).
This idea stirred within me a great sense of awareness.
Our bodies truly are extensions of something much much greater than what our physical senses are able to reveal. If our eyes could sense radiation, our physical experiences and thus perceptions and thus realities would change...What then is our reality?
I was left feeling fully content and satisfied with knowing--we know nothing--not really anyway...
I am comfortable and even more excited about life--because I know for certain this physical life is simply just one form of that which we human beings call 'physical life.'
We are quantum beings having a dense physical experience...and our perceptions--or shall I say--what we choose to perceive alone dictate our realities.
What we focus upon--will ultimately define that which we define as reality....
