The mind can be a very powerful assistant in the healing process when it truly trusts and believes it can heal. The mind can assist in creating the proper environment on the mental level for healing to occur. The mind can support the healing process by being open to and accepting that healing can occur instantly and over time.
The mind can also be a very powerful blockage in the healing process when it does not trust or believe it can heal. The mind can assist in creating an environment of sickness and ill health. The mind can create blockages of feeling like a victim and that it is not possible to heal.
People who suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have incredible discipline and willpower to perform compulsions to relieve themselves of the obsessions they are experiencing even in exhaustive or unideal conditions. Their minds have incredible power to endure through many types of painful conditions.
I have found through personal experience in my healing process and in those people who suffer from OCD that their incredibly powerful minds can either assist the healing process or block it from occurring. When they allow their minds to block them, then it is very difficult to make much progress in healing, even when the soul mind body blockages are removed. When they allow their minds to assist them, then they have a powerful, disciplined and strong ally in their healing process and can progress much further.
The mind assisting or blocking the healing process is true for people who suffer from any condition. Here is an example of one of my students in Berlin who was experiencing severe back pain. Even after the soul mind body blockages were removed, she still was blocked by her mind in accepting the healing. I was honored to help her through the process of trusting, believing and accepting that the soul healing could occur and becoming pain free.
