Re: The so-called amazing power of the mind!!
Well.....I'm positive the mind can do all the things you mentioned and more that we aren't even aware of!
Some people swear they can control their body weight by mind power, and it's a fact that some gurus in India can even increase their body temperature up to the point where they can sit on ice and melt it down in a couple of minutes. Others can use mind control to lower body temps and actually almost stop their heartbeats! Amazing, yes...but it doesn't help us, does it!
All we can do really is try to concentrate on the positive, because the longer you do that, the sooner it becomes a habit. trick your mind into BELIEVING it's happy/upbeat and what d'you know, it won't be able to tell the difference before long: Thus you WILL be happy!
This is called re-programming and anyone can do it, believe me, I've been doing it for years! I changed from being the shyest, most introverted kid at school to having an extrovert personality and lots of friends. Don't give up hope and keep the faith!
