ACTIVATING YOUR PLACEBO RESPONSE
Jose Silva was a man who had little formal education but was fascinated with the power of the human mind. He studied hypnosis, psychology, and parapsychology and discovered his own ability at extrasensory perception was quite good. He could pick up information while in deep states of mind that would guide him in business and personal matters. Later he developed training courses that became world wide education on mind expansion. While his ideas might be considered primitive today, the neuroscience research suggest he was on the right track when it came to remote viewing and activating the healing response.
Years later research on the placebo response found that when people believed they were getting a medical intervention, they miraculously overcame health challenges. A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences is suggesting a person can indeed have a placebo response even when they’re unaware of any suggestion of improvement or anticipation of getting worse. Researchers discovered that the unconscious mind plays an important role in people getting better. So if you believe in the placebo response and say take a supplement for a cold, even if you don’t consciously believe it will help, it actually activates the placebo response. You can trigger your own healing response. The power of the placebo effect is illustrated in the movie classic, The Wizard Of Oz. The wizard didn’t actually give the scarecrow a brain, the tin man a heart, and the lion courage, but they all felt better anyway because they believed it to be true. Now we know, even if they didn’t believe, they would have increased intelligence, empathy and love, and courage without doing anything.
