Healing Meditations

These healing meditations enable you to use the power of your mind to heal your body.

There's a fascinating book called The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge MD and in it, he describes exactly why and how when you visualize or imagine something deeply, the brain (and subsequently the body) cannot tell the difference between reality and the imagined event:

To give you one example, on page 201, Doidge tells a story about Pascual-Luone, who taught a sequence of piano notes to two groups who had never studied piano before. One group just sat in front of the electric piano keyboard and "imagined" playing the sequence and also imagined hearing the notes being played. The other group actually physically practiced the music on the piano keyboard.

"Both groups had their brains mapped before the experiment, each day during it, and afterward. Then both groups were asked to play the sequence, and a computer measured the accuracy of their performances.

Pascual-Leone found that both groups learned to play the sequence, and both showed similar brain map changes. Remarkably, mental practice alone produced the same physical changes in the motor system as actually playing the piece."

So, in this way, when we imagine or visualize a healing action or sequence - especially when we are in Theta brainwave state, the brain will action it without question or hesitation. Personally, I feel that when the "imagining" is done in deep meditative state (when the brainwaves are in Theta frequency), this will potentiate the effects/results.

The more we visualize a particular occurrence or sequence, the brain builds neural pathways, or maps, to support that sequence - like grooves being worn deeper and deeper. This continues until it gets to the point where a habit is formed, or you will automatically do that thing without thinking.

The Custom Healing Meditation is a loose framework that can be customized to your needs. For example, let's say you suffer from constipation because your peristaltic mechanism is not working properly.

Peristalsis is a muscular contraction, so you can train your body to activate those muscles. Re-read the section in Listen To Your Gut where I discovered I could train my rectum to move the stool back UP into the colon when I didn't want to have a bowel movement - something that is also supposed to be uncontrollable (pg 368). I've had feedback from numerous people who have successfully implemented this technique, so I know it's something that anyone can implement.

So, then you go online and find videos of peristalsis, this one is quite grisly, but it really shows what intestinal peristalsis looks like, so will help you to visualize it:

This video shows colonic peristalsis in pigs - which is very similar to humans:

Then you play the Custom Healing Meditation and once you are deeply relaxed and in theta brainwave state, you visualize your peristalsis in your colon (and intestines) working perfectly - all the way down to your rectum and then visualize the stool being expelled naturally and easily from your rectum - without you even having to push.
 
The next time you are on the toilet, repeat this visualization - don't expect immediate results, just keep doing the visualizations until your body learns how.
 
I used these same visualization techniques to teach my bladder to open easily and void completely whilst pregnant - when it is very difficult to achieve complete evacuation of the bladder in one go. I just stood up over the toilet and tilted forward to take the pressure of the fetus off my bladder. Then I imagined my bladder releasing, relaxing and letting go, and the urine flowing down my urethra and out into the toilet. Again, I first found photos of what the bladder/urethra looked like, so I could visualize effectively.
 
So do these healing meditations every night before you go to sleep, or perhaps during your quiet time in the daytime, for whatever needs healing in your body. Do them often, until the neural pathways have been reinforced to the point where you see the change in your physical body.

An added bonus will be the deep physical relaxation your whole body will receive by relaxing into deep meditative state every day.
