We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Murphy, author of The Power of the Subconscious Mind, told a story of one his relatives who died as a result of negative autosuggestion.
The man went to visit a crystal gazer in India who told him that by the next new moon, he was going to die as something will happen to his heart.
So he came back and started telling everyone that he was going to die at the said time. He even prepared his will as a sign that he was going.
That negative autosuggestion, believed, came to pass. He died that same day.
What killed him?
An autopsy was carried out and it was discovered that his heart was in good condition. However, it’s clear that his thoughts were distorted and his body had to let go… That’s the power of autosuggestion.
You can see the result of autosuggestion around you – from kids to adults with faulty perception of themselves. They have been told they will amount to nothing from childhood and so they believed it. After a while, it shows up.
It was auto suggested to them and their minds, just like yours, cannot fathom what’s true or false. What you give to the mind, it takes.
If you believe coronavirus will kill you, my dear you are setting yourself up for death. Somehow, I feel the fear of the covid-19 might cause more harm than the virus itself.
Does it mean we should pay no attention to corovirus?
Off course not.
Take all the coronavirus safety measures but more importantly guard your mind. That’s where your life is controlled from.
The NEWS media is full of terror and statistics of those affected and dead due to coronavirus.
As you stay at home, working remotely, don’t allow the negatives of covid-19 overshadow your thoughts.
Remember the words we started with. And I’ll close with this to reemphasize the reality that we are first spiritual beings:
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all creatures that move along the ground.
Genesis 1:26 (NIV)
