Believing your way to greater wellness in 2013

Happy New Year!
January 6, 2013

Happy New Year!
I hope the Holiday Season has been joyful and full of celebrations for you and your loved ones.
Now that we are in 2013, what wellness goals have you set for yourself this year?

I was reading Bruce Lipton's Biology of Belief again whilst on Koh Tao over the holiday period and came across the following which I would like to share with you.

"In 1974 Meador had a patient, Sam Londe, a retired shoe salesman suffering from cancer of the esophagus, a condition that was at the time considered 100 percent fatal. Londe was treated for that cancer, but everyone in the medical community "knew" that his esophageal cancer would recur. So it was no surprise when Londe died a few weeks after his diagnosis.The surprise came after Londe's death when an autopsy found very little cancer in his body, certainly not enough to kill him. There were a couple of spots in the liver and one in the lung, but there was no trace of the esophageal cancer that everyone thought had killed him. Meador told the Discovery Health Channel: "He died with cancer, but not from cancer." What did Londe die of if not esophageal cancer?"

Perception is seen as a lens by Dr Lipton. What we see and experience in our bodies, depends on what coloured lenses (what we believe) we are waring. To illustrate this, Dr Lipton shares a slide in his lectures which show s an image of "love" or "fear", depending on whether the audience is wearing a green or red-coloured spectacles.
The chapter closes with Mahatma Gandhi's quote....
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

In the case above, the belief of incurable cancer became the destiny of Londe. What beliefs are you holding that is affecting your health or physical condition?
May this new year be a time for you (and me) for transmuting some beliefs that are no longer useful for our bodies, minds or lives.
Until nex time!
