I think emotions and positive thinking is very important in healing. I personally use positive thinking everyday. I think of all the things I am thankful for before I go to bed. I also tell myself that I will feel good today when I get up in the morning. Even though I feel this helps it does not cure my problems. I am curious about this tapping thing. I try to keep an open mind about things so you will have to let me know how it goes. I hope it helps you!
I recently watched a public TV program that said by saying you are well you can become well. This guys said he had life threatening illness and he was able to cure it with thoughts alone. There seems to be a lot of things out there saying this. However I feel this is not the case for every situation. Sometimes people are sick and need help in other ways, but i agree that positive thinking can only help everything. To me thinking that thoughts can change everything does not support the fact that there is a God that has a plan. If thinking your well would be all that is needed to heal oneself why would we ever die? We should just be able to think we will live forever and would. Don’t get me wrong I think positive thinking, emotions, hope, and most important faith are very important in healing, though I think there are also times when a problem needs to be fixed in the body along with the mind. I also believe people can get sick and it has nothing to do with their own thinking, or stress, or emotions.
I love to hear other people thoughts on this 😀
Lots of love to you,
I only think what works works and what doesn’t work is not working. Its simple. EFT has nothing to do with positive thinking, you don’t even have to believe in it. Try and see. The God issue you put into the picture is an interesting one but is not holding up in the argument. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead despite the fact that Lazarus died again. The same is with all the other humans he healed they all are dead now. Still Jesus healed them for a while. For me that is good and enough to be healed until I die. I rather have that than a shitty sick life until I die. 😉
If you hold the believe that there is a plan of God through sickness than it is wired to fight sickness through any kind of means as you are against the will of God. If God consider it good for you to be sick why are you than trying to get rid of something which is good for you?
But if you believe that sickness is bad and God wants to heal you, well, than anything goes, diet, medicine, prayer, EFT, whatever.
