Research in the field of Mind-Body Psychology has demonstrated the destructive effect of negative self-talk upon the immune chemistry of the physical body. The same research has demonstrated that the immune system strengthens with positive self-talk and feelings.
Let's say you are like tens of millions of people who continually use negative self-talk through out the day. Negative affirmations such as "I'm no good," "I'll never succeed," "Life is difficult," "I'm just not lucky" combined with the negative feelings such words can produce result in a depression of the bio -chemicals which assist is staving off infection.
A fascinating addition to the science of bio-chemistry regarding self-talk and feelings is the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto. He developed a process in which he studies the effects of thoughts, feelings, prayer, intention, energy, music and anything which can produce an energy vibration on the development of water crystals. Photographs as well as words on a glass can change the crystal development of the water.
Negativity produces photographs of misshapen and rather "ugly" water crystals. Water taken from the same source at the same time, and then prayed over or held in the hands with positive intentions, form beautiful photographic water crystals.
If you are not aware of Dr. Masaru Emoto's work with the photography of water crystals, I suggest you use your favorite search engine to see some beautiful photographs. There are also videos showing how he takes the photographs of his beautiful crystals.
Although I can not evaluate Dr. Emoto's work scientifically, I can tell you his before and after pictures of water crystals are dramatic.
The human body is about 70% water. If Dr. Emoto's work is accurate, then how you feel about yourself, how you talk to yourself, has an effect up the water in your body.
A powerful method of changing the negative messages you've been giving yourself, brings together the information from Dr. Emoto's work and a healing tool known as a Healing Silk. Healing Silks are made with fractals found in nature, such as those seen in the nautilus shell.
When you take a Healing Silk with its healing vibration, place it over a glass of water, and fervently state your affirmation, your vibration, that of the Healing Silk and that of your intention has a changing effect up the water.
Through the day, take a sip of the energized water and allow the vibration of your affirmation go to every cell of your body. When you look at the Healing Silk, the vibration also resonates within you further encoding the affirmation within you.
The key to drinking the water is not only the vibratory changes from the Healing Silk and your affirmation, but the fact that every time you take a sip you are bringing to mind your intention. Your mind is focusing on the positive, changing your previous negative self-talk.
