We have all heard about the faith healers. These people do not practice faith healing at least in the sense that I am talking about in faith therapy. Sometimes they do though get close, but they are involved more in placebo effect.
Jesus said, “All things are possible to the one who keeps on believing.” The first thing I note there is that this maxim does not involve a one time ecstasy of believing.
and pumps up an audience. Maybe he makes 90% of them believers. But in six months or a year how many of the people are experiencing positive possible results from his speech?
It appears that the statistics are very low for real results from the speech. There is maybe a short term spike in positive results. But that fades as the memory of the dynamic presentation dims. The audience is finally left with a boat load of doubts or down right disbelief. That type belief is connected with the speaker or writer, as the case maybe, and not the heart.
What Jesus was talking about is heart belief, or as Solomon put it as a man thinketh in his heart so is he. The first type of belief is externally sourced and the second type is internally sourced.
This is sometimes a problem in medical treatment, especially with treatment that takes an extended period of time. All the patient’s faith is in the doctor and not internally sourced. So the patient may continue the treatment, but in doubt. The issue becomes chronic because there is no heart belief, and it is not in the belief area of possible. The healing may come, but it is a longer time coming than it should, if internal belief was added to the therapy.
William James, was a doctor and philosopher,
said that the doctor does more good with his bedside manner that with any drug he prescribes. This includes keeping the external belief fire burning to aid in the healing process. He was noting the short term external belief effect and the need for the doctor to keep it re enforced.
Once a belief has been internalized, then the effect is self sustained and always operative. This is why the old time doctor patient relationship was so helpful in healing. The patient had to some extent internalized his faith in that doctor. So, there was often noted better results with the family doctor.
Now the idea of faith therapy is this. You want to internalize a belief in your heart about the healing. And that can be done, and there is some scientific research to back up that this can be done.
I read once of a major university doing research into foot surgery. Without going into a lot of details here, they used all the scientific protocols for testing and worked with similar foot surgeries. One group was given the surgery, meds, and standard therapy. The other group was given the same with added self hypnosis therapy.
In the hypnosis they were sending positive healing messages to the injured foot.
On average the group that did the hypnotherapy healed in half the time of the control group. The doctors were surprised at the results. They never imagined that there would be such a dramatic beneficial result from the hypnosis.
What had happened? The patients had internalized belief that the healing was speeding along. As a man thinks in his heart so is he. It was a form of belief therapy. Since their subconscious was being blueprinted with the belief, it was worked faith therapy 24/7.
I will show you a quick way to do an easy self hypnosis session and start to internalize faith therapy. You can do it in any place, where there is little distraction, and it is private even if you are in public place.
First, get comfortable, laying down, sitting, or standing.
Second, close your eyes and roll your eyes up as if you are looking at just above your eyebrows. Some prefer to roll the eyes up as if you are looking out your third eye.
Next, notice your breathing in and out of you stomach. Just observe your gentle breath for a minute or two.
Then, when you have gotten into observing your breathing, start mentally repeating the belief that you wish to implant in your subconscious. Coordinate the phasing of the belief statement with the rhythm on your breathing. [Some say 20 times. But more or less as you have time. Do not be distracted by trying to make an exact count.] Just repeat and breathe, eyes rolled up.
Finally, when you have finished, go about your business.
This is a sample simple belief implantation that you might use. “Thank you for my rapid healing.” Of course you may adjust that to the particulars of your situation. And KEEP IT SIMPLE.
You can also do this as part of a meditation if you are into that.
Faith therapy is too simple to be true, but it is.
