The so-called amazing power of the mind!!

I am just down right astounded how much power our minds have over our own body, we want to be pregnant so bad, but instead our mind plays tricks on us, and actually does things to prevent us from being so. Like causing false symptoms, stopping AF, and even keeping us from Ovulating. Is this the way it is supposed to be. To me it sounds contradicting. Why can't our minds make us lose weight or gain it when we want it too, why can't it instead give us a better complexion or even make us taller or shorter, instead we have to suffer and be with out the one thing in our lives that we want so bad. It makes me wonder what did we do to deserve this.

Please forgive me, if I ranted... I had to get this out.

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!

Anything worth having is worth the fight.

But I agree, I don't understand this process either. My mindset is that there are just too many people out there trying to make a buck in this world. I cater to their pocketbook each month when my body is screwed up or if I try to lose weight....It's neverending. I've said it 100 times before, I never knew getting pg was going to be such a science experiment! -J

Alyssium, I feel exactly the way you do. How I wish I could do this reprogramming Nela speaks of. I always seem to have 100 things going through my mind at once and even if I'm thinking positive thoughts on 50 of those things, the other 50 smack of reality! SHEESH! I hear you loud and clear...thank God we have people like Nela and LadyLight to encourage us when we can't do it ourselves! I thank you, Nela! And I empathize with you Alyssium! Good luck and keep bd'ing... <IMG SRC="">
