So maybe I have not revealed this yet, but I am WAY out there.. Just ask my wife and well… basically anyone who knows me… 🙂 A while back I came up with this theory, while journeying toward God, that you must accept anything as a possibility to even begin to approach the unanswerable questions we all have. The problem in general is the unknown condition being present at least as a mental block. Therefore I adopted the mantra “Anything is Possible” in it’s most literal sense. This perspective accounts for the unknown condition while at the same time allows acceptance of any point of view without bias. So before I lose everyone reading, I will get to the point. I am as much a dreamer as I am a skeptic… Ya have fun with that one… So I can ‘concoct’ some pretty interesting ideas, but I also must test them for validity… all the while keeping my mantra about me. So in doing just that, I decided that if I were able to heal myself in the known way, like with a cut or a scratch, why wouldn’t I also be able to heal every other part of me? Our bodies clearly have the ‘techology’ to facilitate this presently, are we sure that it is limited to that which we know? Interesting… at least I thought so, enough so to carry out a real test. A bit of background, I was born with a Congenital Heart Defect, VSD (a hole between the ventricles of the heart) as well as a bi-cuspid Aortic Valve and Mitral Valve Regurgitation/Prolapse (the valve leaks backward to varying degrees causing the heart to have to work harder to compensate for its inefficiency). I had open heart surgery when I was 3 to make the available repairs. I have been told all my life that I would need to have the leaky valve replaced @ some point in my life and have thus been on watch, annually with EKG’s and ECHO’s (?) to monitor the leak(s) in the valve and the integrity of the patch (for the VSD). Incidentally your valves are supposed to have 3 leaflets not 2, like mine. So back to my test… for as long as I can remember, or at least remember being told, my condition has remained static, no better no worse. Not a necessarily bad thing, but no better prognosis from an inevitable valve replacement perspective. So I put my mantra to the test. Some time ago I decided to focus myself on visualizing my valve “healing” itself. I spent time in a meditative state, keeping in mind that I have really no idea what I am doing, but again, this is the beauty of my mantra… accounting for the unknown condition, in this case that I do not ‘know’ how to meditate… but does that matter? I believe that my minds ability is far more powerful than its perceived inability. You should be able to see that on some level, personally. I continued to visualize my valve, something I have never seen before (my own that is) being repaired. I saw it working properly, closing perfectly in a nice healthy red/pink hue. So I don’t recall how long I did this, or if it even matters, as the mere suggestion of this should be all that is required to initiate the process. Again as anything is possible, I can say that one single thought of this can instigate the actual physical change. I mean, no one understands how or why our skin heals, or what part of us “tells” it to do so automatically… it just does it. To me there is no difference in any part of us… Just a little enhanced programming is all that is needed. I want you to keep in mind here that I did not spend an inordinate amount of time concentrating on this either. As a matter of fact, I am thinking about it right now, in passing thoughts, as I often do, which again should be enough to restart the condition if in fact a restart is even needed. I went for my annual check up with my Cardiologist and guess what he said to me… “… Hmmm your valve looks great, in fact it looks to have improved…??? You may never need repair surgery…” Yes he actually said that, and he said it with disbelief in his inflection. So… on some level, one of 2 possibilities have presented themselves here. Coincidentally and quite unlikely I might add, my heart’s valve just got better… or the fact that my mantra test actually worked. Either way, if a simple thought can instigate even a tiny change, maybe we should have LOTS more of these thoughts everyday… Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂 Believe in the power that you don’t understand… everything else is just a limitation.
