She was suffering from a pneumonia, congestive heart failure and renal insufficiency but the major issue was her severe arthritis. Her pain exacerbation was managed with medications and we saw a good response.
She was among one of those patients who asked me about how my day was going every time I visited her. Every time when she asked, I replied that it’s my line; every time it brought smile on her face.
I remembered her interaction with me and her claims of keeping a positive thoughtful mind to heal an ailing body.
To some, a mind body connection heals us all. The belief may comes from the notion that the positivity of thoughts creates positive fields of energy for healing and recovery. But it is not a simple recipe, as we all know.
Others while understanding the strength of connections go beyond. They are the ones who know that the positivity of thoughts count but the neutrality of mind matters. It is that neutral mind which let the Universe in to channel what is required like healing and hope..
I wonder with amazement that even positive thoughts can be polarizing and may even delay creativity. I think that keeping a neutral mind may be the biggest challenge for a mind body connection seeker.
