The functional Mind.


The greatest discovery of the 19th century was not in the realm of the physical sciences,but the power of the subconscious mind touched by faith. Any individual can tap into an eternal reservoir of power that will enable them to overcome any problem that may arise. All weaknesses can be overcome, bodily healing, financial independence, spiritual awakening, and prosperity beyond your wildest dreams. This is the superstructure of happiness.

~ William James.


Case study 1 – Using the Mind in Sports

Dr. Charles Garfield, former NASA researcher and current president of The Performance-Science Institute in Berkeley, California, talks about a startling experiment conducted by Soviet sports scientists.

The study examined the effect of mental training, on four groups of world-class athletes just prior to the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. They were divided as follows:

  1. Group 1: did 100% physical training.

  2. Group 2: did 75% physical training, 25% mental training.

  3. Group 3: did 50% physical training, 50% mental training.

  4. Group 4: did 25% physical training, 75% mental training.

They found was that group 4 the group with the most mental training – had shown significantly greater improvement than group all the other groups.


Thus i'm lead to believe that weight gain could be as a partial result of watching too much cooking TV channels. Could you be tricking your mind? I hope a study is done on this.

The placebo effect.

Doctors have found that patients can often cure themselves of illnesses when prescribed sugar pills and made to believe that these sugar pills are powerful drugs. Most of these effects are thought to be a psychological triggering of a physical response. Not all forms of placebo administration are equally effective. A placebo that involves ingestion, injection, or incision is often more powerful than a non-invasive technique. Placebos administered by authority figures such as general practitioners, spiritual leaders and other people whose capabilities are trusted are often more powerful than when the psychological or spiritual authority figure is absent. Now I will demonstrate to you how critical it is to truly believe in what you want to achieve. Lack of complete faith can and will ruin your minds hard work.

Case study: 1

“Physicians want to think it's the medicine and not their enthusiasm about a particular drug that makes a drug more therapeutically effective, but now we really have to worry about the nuances of interaction between patients and physicians,” said Dan Ariely, A behavioral economist from Duke university, whose findings appear as a letter in the March 5 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Ariely and a team funded by Massachusetts Institute of Technology used a standard protocol for administering light electric shock to the study group wrists to measure their subjective rating of pain. The 82 study subjects were tested before getting the placebo and after. Half the participants were given a brochure describing the pill as a newly-approved pain-killer which cost $2.50 per dose and half were given a brochure describing it as marked down to 10 cents, without saying why.

In the full-price group, 85 percent of the participants reported a reduction in pain after taking the placebo. In the low-price group, 61 percent said the pain was less.

“The results fit with existing data about how people perceive quality and how they anticipate therapeutic effects,” he said. More amazing is how the mind filters quality over being told a pill works. "The placebo effect is one of the most fascinating, least harnessed forces in the universe," Ariely said.

"And how do we give people cheaper medication, or a generic, without them thinking it won't work"" he asks.

Case study: 2

In April 2004 researchers in Denver University found that patients who underwent a placebo surgery for Parkinson’s disease reported a better quality of life twelve months later.

The power of the placebo effect has been seen before in Parkinson’s disease but not to this extent. Clearly the mind-body connection is very strong in this condition and it s to be hoped that ways can be found to exploit this to benefit the patient.

The placebo effect is now being conducted in cancer research, patients are encouraged to cure themselves of cancer naturally by visualizing themselves healthy and cured.

This shows how powerful the mind is. It has the ability to cure the body of anything if only used in the right way. Most people know this by now because of the many “coincidences” they have had in their lives.


Casually referred to as gut instinct, sixth sense, a hunch or weird vibe.

We all have it while some people use it better than others; some just decide to ignore it. Women especially mothers have been said to have stronger intuition, such that they can sense when something is not right with their children even if the child is miles away. When you sharpen your intuition you will;

    • Tune in to your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

    • Establish instant rapport with anyone you meet. Create a feeling of trust, connection, and enjoyment.

    • Find lasting inner peace because you learn to trust your decisions.

    • Clear your mind and heart of baggage.

    • Improve the lives of others. Live a life that’s fulfilled and happy.

    • Make all your relationships more fulfilling and meaningful.

    • Learn correct attitude that will unlock the door to your intuition.
