I was watching PBS last night and this Doctor was on to explain how she managed to cure herself after a trip to Greece. She couldnt understand what had happened so with the help of brain specialists, she found out how the brain works and whats important to healing yourself. They noticed that what we see influences our bodies. Look at something you enjoy and your body will secrete feel good hormones, boost your immune system and lower your stress level.....thus healing you. A test was done with 2 people in the hospital. One was facing a brick wall, the other was looking out at a garden. The one with the lovely view healed better and much faster. Would you change your surroundings so you can look at pictures you like and see if it'll help with how you feel and maybe cure you of some problems you're having?

Even colors can help you heal, the mind is an unbelievable powerful tool that rules the body. The thing is that it is also very literal. If someone says you look like you don't feel well, the mind records I don't feel well and the body responds. This happens so fast that unless we are very focused we never notice. This is a very good reason to use tapping. When you are tapping you are tuned into the mind be using the acupressure points. You do not fight your mind, you just provide new information by doing this. For Information on tapping go to tapping. com. The site is free.

Yes, having lovely calm things to look at is helpful. Other studies indicate that clutter and disarrangement make even healthy people function poorly, and some behavior disorders in kids are made worse by messy, cluttered homes. Mess can lead to depression. Having said that, I wonder why I am on the computer instead of cleaning right now. Actually, I think DOING things you enjoy make you healthier as well. I notice that Ocean Tiara mentions the sea, and that is also a true observation. Being around bodies of water can improve your well being. I think we have not been taught how to help ourself in inexpensive healthy ways.

You're so right, we need to learn how to heal ourselves or make ourselves feel better with simple things. As for messy homes, Im quite anal about this, cant function when theres a mess..I have to get up and fix it right away. I think I'll try to learn more about Feng Shui, Im sure it can only be helpful. Thanks !!
