The following is based on an outline found in a book called the Healing Code by Dr Alex Loyd and Dr Ben Johnson. Much of what they present in the early part of the book aligned with my own knowledge through research and life experience. The seven statements (called secrets in the book) are a useful framework on which to hang and explore ideas. For a more detailed exploration, I recommend the book.
1. There Is One Source of Illness and Disease
There is one thing that the majority of the health sector agree on (based on scientific research) and that is, that almost all health issues originate from one thing. Stress. Stress is what results from pressure applied either physically or mentally.
Examples of research in this area include examples such as
- Carnegie Mellon University. “How stress influences disease: Study reveals inflammation as the culprit.” ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 2 April 2012. www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/04/120402162546.htm
- Life Event, Stress and Illness. Mohd. Razali Salleh Malays J Med Sci. 2008 October; 15(4): 9–18. : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3341916/
Here are three simple statements to frame both the problem and the solution
- There is one thing on planet Earth that can heal just about any problem in your life. This is your immune system.
- There is one thing on planet Earth that will turn off your immune system. This is Stress
- There is one thing on planet Earth that will turn your immune system back on. This is the removal or cancelling of stress
2. Stress Is Caused by An Energy Problem in the Body
“Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual” (1) – Richard Conn Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University (quote taken from “the mental universe)
“If you want to know the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla.
Energy has two common elements.
1. A frequency (the rate at which something occurs over a particular period of time or in a given sample),
2. and a wavelength (the distance between successive crests of a wave, especially points in a sound wave or electromagnetic wave.)
Dr Bruce Lipton, a former professor of medicine at Harvard University and author of the best-selling ‘Your mind is greater than your genes’, explains that if you drop two equal pebbles at exactly the same time into water, from the same height, they will both produce the same wave ripples. Ie, their waves will be in harmony with each other, and when their ripples meet the combined effect will be an amplification of the wavelength – in other words the merged waves become more powerful. But if you drop the pebbles from different heights or a millisecond apart, then when the resultant waves meet they will not be in harmony and will cancel each other out – the waves become weaker. You can try this out for yourself. http://www.lifetrainings.com/We-are-made-of-Energy-not-Matter.html
“…their waves will be in harmony with each other, and when their ripples meet the combined effect will be an amplification of the wavelength – in other words the merged waves become more powerful.” Think too much pressure, more stress.
“But if you drop the pebbles from different heights or a millisecond apart, then when the resultant waves meet they will not be in harmony and will cancel each other out – the waves become weaker.” Herein lies the core of the issue and the answer to the problem.
3. The Issues of the Heart Are The Healing Control Mechanism
A few years back I purchased a memory foam mattress on the promise of a comfortable nights sleep. The problem is that it remembers the weight of my body and now I have a dip in my bed where I sleep. So rather than being supported, I sleep in a hole. (I must get a new mattress).
This is the analogy I use to introduce cellar memory. Our cells have memories in them that are passed down from our parents, transmitted to transplant recipients and indented into our being through trauma, over-reaction, and general imbalance.
Put simply, if these memories are energy, then if I apply the opposite energy the effect will be cancelled out or lessened just like the pebble in the pond example above. This sounds simple enough. However, there is another factor at play.
4. The Human Hard Drive
Everything we experience gets recorded into our cellular memory as data gets stored on a computer hard drive. If we were actually a computer hard drive, all the data would be easily accessible. The problem is the most is hidden. We don’t have much control over the hidden stuff. It’s there to keep things running, keep us breathing, sleeping, processing stimulus that we are constantly receiving. However, on a normal hard drive, you can choose to hide and unhide things whenever you want to. When I learn a piece of music, I can read the score and play it enough times until it becomes part of the hidden data in my memory. I can make music by drawing on that hidden data whenever I want, not a music score insight. If only that were the case for everything we experience and record in our cellular memory.
5. Your Antivirus Program May Be Making You Sick
The problem is that we have a protection mechanism that although usually highly effective, is over-reactive and I would argue basically dysfunctional. It’s called our fight or flight response. If you hit your thumb with a hammer, it really hurts and from then on you are extra careful not to hit the thumb again. Even if you whack it three of four times after that, you will eventually stop as the thumb will be so painful, you can barely hold the nail. You now have a cellular memory. Your fight of flight mechanism steps up and instructs your body to find a solution. Get someone else to hold the nail, use a pair of pliers or something equally imaginative. Anything but put your thumb where it might get hit again.
Now lets say, that the only reason you missed the nail and hit your thumb in the first place was that you were distracted. The distraction is now gone. There is no reason for you not to hit the nail this time. Try using a hand with a banged up thumb to hold the nail. No way. Something else is at play. Somehow you believe that if you try hitting the nail again, that bruised thumb might just get hit again. It is so powerful, it will pull all stops to make sure your hand doesn’t go anywhere near the wrong end of a hammer.
You can substitute any trauma for a bruised thumb. Rejection, abuse, failure, a put down you name it. Now to the even more powerful agent that comes into play to ensure that the response of the fight or flight response remains permanent. NO more thumbs getting hit with a hammer!!! Period! We now move to the belief. Belief is sourced from the heart.
6. I Believe
What we believe is tied to our spirit. The force and power of belief is evidenced everywhere for us all to see. The runner that trains for years to win an Olympic event believes he has a chance of winning. We sit in chairs as a routine because we believe they will hold us. Islamic suicide bombers will destroy themselves and others through the power of belief. If you can engage the heart, there is almost nothing you can’t achieve. Is it any wonder that a famous wise King once wrote. Watch over your heart with all diligence, For out of it are the sources of life. Proverbs 4:23
7. When the Heart and the Head Conflict, the Winner Is …
Yes, the heart. You will do, say and live according to your heart, no matter what you try. Go against your heart for a period and you won’t get far. If illness doesn’t stop you, depression, anger, any response your spirit can muster will bring you back into alignment with what you believe in your heart. So, fix the heart issue and you can fix the stress issue. Problem solved.
The heart is Spiritual and much of what we believe is wrong. A child told by a parent or teacher that they will not amount to anything if they choose to believe it will do exactly that. They will never reach their true potential because they believe a lie.
So in a nutshell, to be explored in more detail, healing comes from solving the issues of the heart. Bring truth, cancelling energy (in this case positive) and a desire and you have the tools to start a journey to healing. Be blessed Aryeh.
