Healing your mind

November 30th, 2010 § 0 comments

I come across a lot of talk about healing the body, in medical and scientific contexts, but I don’t usually come across talk regarding healing the mind. I first encountered such an idea through the Oregon Ki Society. Conceptualizing part of my mind as patterns of thought, and patterns of perception, helps me to think about health. Just like amputees can still feel their missing limb, my mind continues in patterns which aren’t needed anymore. For instance, the pattern of taller people being worthy of authority. Made sense when I was a child, but it’s not really a useful pattern anymore. Feeling crummy and unmotivated is another example. When I exercise, eat right, and engage in a variety of tasks, I don’t need to continue a negative way of thinking. I can strengthen my mind to be positive.
