Four Keys in preparing for healing and health:
1. Be prepared for what you want by thinking of it as inevitable.
2. Be prepared now for what you want now.
3. Give your whole self to the idea of the healing you desire.

It makes no difference whether one is
Kneeling on a prayer rug in the Near East,
Dancing around a fire in the jungle,
Sitting in a cathedral in France,
Entreating an intercessor at the Shrine of Lourdes,
Burning lamps on the steps of Chichicastenango,
Painting with sand in the land of the Navaho,
Spinning a prayer-wheel in Tibet, or
Receiving the laying-on-of-hands anywhere-
At all times the Healing Power is within every person. It is always ready, and it is always the same. It demands no ritual, showmanship or fanfare to bring us the healing we seek.
Smith, Harry Douglas (1965) The Secret of Instantaneous Healing New York: Parker Publishing Company, Inc., p 37.

AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. DENNIS JAFFE
books = Healing from Within; Mind, Body, and Health, From Burnout to Balance negative thought patterns, developed while growing up = cause of current misery; change belief structure by re-education, positive imager, and psychotherapy; most difficult thing to learn = to stop blaming world and being victim and realize that if you are unhappy, its your choice; stress has to do with the interaction between a changing environment and you - its not stress but your own response to that stress that's causing a problem; 2 different types of destructive behavior patterns or habits:
1. over-control = Type A; being supercharged which can burn out circulatory system and gastric system; resulting in heart attack, hypertension, chronic headaches, ulcers, colitis
2. under-control = helpless/hopeless syndrome of cancer, aids, RA, allergies, immune system: (If you give up, your immune system will too)
optimal control = point in middle of 1 & 2 key to change = self-awareness and relaxation/meditation
Padus, Emrika and the editors of PREVENTION magazine, 1986.YOUR EMOTIONS AND YOUR HEALTH: New Dimensions in Mind/Body Healing, p 242-248
***********
AN INTERVIEW WITH BERNIE SIEGEL
Dr. Bernie Siegel, Love, Medicine, and Miracles; medicine is failure-oriented, i.e. only deal with patients who do not get well, they don't expect to see patients who they told would die come back to the office, so they do not know when these patients live either! patient who healed of cancer said "I went home, decided to live to be 100 and leave my troubles to God"; surviving cancer has a much to do with our mental attitudes as it does the extent of the disease;
Padus, Emrika and the editors of PREVENTION magazine, 1986.YOUR EMOTIONS AND YOUR HEALTH: New Dimensions in Mind/Body Healing,
***********
two mechanisms to open the lines of mind/body communications - to send "live" messages to the body:
1. through emotions: "if you want to die, stay depressed; if you want to live, then love and laugh"; Positive emotions like love, acceptance, and forgiveness stimulate the immune system.
2. through images: select symbols to represent your disease and your white blood cells; (i.e. food and a hungry bird or cat or Pac Man); then close your eyes and play out the action in your mind; repeat at least 6 times/day; look at what's right with the person rather than what's wrong
"I take the position that everything in the universe is trying to help us regain health and move in that direction"
O. Carl Simonton, (in Carlson & Shield, p49) Carlson,Richard & Shield,Benjamin (Editors) , Healers on Healing Los Angeles, Jeremy P.Tarcher,Inc.
***********
Decide to be open and contact the inner guide
find what makes us feel better, then physical changes will follow
"Healing is simply attempting to do more of those things that bring joy and fewer of those things that bring pain"
O. Carl Simonton, (in Carlson & Shield, p50) Carlson,Richard & Shield,Benjamin (Editors) , Healers on Healing Los Angeles, Jeremy P.Tarcher,Inc.
***********
"To our outer consciousness, it is what is done - whether taking a medication, prayer, healer's touch, exercise,, or diet - that seems to be the cause of the healing response, not the consciousness in which the action was taken" (39) element of grace = surrendering to life on its own terms "True healing...is never fully on our terms"
...because the very process of trying to change things on our terms blinds us to listening more directly to life. We are compelled to fix rather than to come unto the Kingdom through the agency of Life"
Richard Moss (in Carlson & Shield, p37-40) Carlson,Richard & Shield,Benjamin (Editors) , Healers on Healing Los Angeles, Jeremy P.Tarcher,Inc.
***********
"The moment we start identifying with the body, we become dominated by it. Then the ego gets involved and we start wanting to overcome or "conquer" the problem rather than to see and understand clearly what is actually in disharmony."
the body needs to adapt to the mind (not the mind to the body)
attitudes important, i.e. immune system = defense system => already in battle vs. transcending & looking at promoting high energy fields so immune system can take care of itself
any healing technique = form in which the healer's love can be transferred
"We need to begin developing more faith in the process of transfer than in the particular technique used to bring it about"
Jack Schwarz (in Carlson & Shield, p19-21) Carlson,Richard & Shield,Benjamin (Editors) , Healers on Healing Los Angeles, Jeremy P.Tarcher,Inc.
***********
"If our highest duty is to follow wholeness, peace, and kindness of our being, to treat others fairly, and to help where we can help, then the condition of the body is only meaningful as it makes concentration on love easier or more difficult. Healing is therefore accomplished through love and is love. And love is the uniting principle in all healing approaches - insofar as they truly heal. Healing's opposite is judgment, and any system (or practitioner) of healing loses in effectiveness when it becomes judgmental." "The true healer merely gives the gift of healing but does not watch over the patient to say in what form it is to be received"
Hugh Prather (in Carlson & Shield, p13-15) Carlson,Richard & Shield,Benjamin (Editors) , Healers on Healing Los Angeles, Jeremy P.Tarcher,Inc.

For healing:
-visualize yourself (or someone else) directly in front of you, as if you were looking in a full length mirror
- analyze the problem for 2 minutes
- move the picture to the left; imaging yourself getting better, see all areas being healed for 12 minutes
- move picture further to the left and see self totally healed for 2 minutes. Hold picture of being normal and healthy
