Waters of Thought...

So I was talking earlier today with a close friend and the subject of image came up. More importantly self image. She said that our bodies don't make us, our thoughts do. This is so true. How many of us stop to think though, that our thoughts are physically affecting our bodies? Today's society judges on outward appearances, and with that we have a tendency to judge ourselves, as with the case of many women way too harshly. Many times we will look into the mirror and perceive the tiniest flaw and blow it way out of proportion. As she said she didn't want to be reduced to simply body parts and be judged on her breasts and ass, however as we do not wished to be judged by others we are the very firt to do it to ourselves...

So what does this all mean?

To put it simply, we become what we believe we are. If we obsess and think negatively about ourselves, sure enough that is how the body will respond. It is like a prayer repeated over and over again. Wait, a prayer? Lance, prayers are supposed to be nothing but good things. Well, unfortunately when you put constant energy into something, be it positive or negative, that is a prayer. If you are saying to yourself over and over again consciously or subconsciously a negatively perceived aspect of yourself, you are in fact invoking that trait. Why? Because the body respopnds to the stimuli given it. It can even take the form of emotional addiction, but we can come to that later. For now we will focus on the affect of thought on the body.

How can thought affect the body? Well our bodies are made up of receivers. Be it cells and what have you, they are all waiting to receive instructions, nourishment, etc. A large percentage of our bodies are made up of water. Water is the most receptive of the four elements. An experiment was done with water to see if the stimulis of thought had any effect on it at the molecular level. A Japanese doctor (the name escapes me at the moment) photographed water molecules at the molecular level using a Phase 400 Blackfield Microscope and applied different thought stimuli on the same types of water.

In this first photo is regular water from the Fujiwara Dam in Japan.

Next is the same water after receiving a blessing from a Buddhist Monk.

Following the dam water experiment, he applied mental stimuli to distilled water and taped words on the container and left it overnight. The resulting photographs speak for themselves.

Now if our thoughts can do that to water, and our bodies are mostly made of water, what then do you think our thoughts do to ourselves?

Ponder that one for a bit....
