'M really into the idea that you have to exert your will to improve things, not just sit and wait. You can exercise their free will to make life better in every respect, "he said.

The first part is called "Mind Healer, Mind Slayer, how does the mind" and includes an interview with Anderson, series and Darline Denudt Moderator Donna Thompson, a licensed in the center of spiritual life.

"Since I was a small child was healthy is very important for me, in general, and worth more than that," Thompson said in the video. "I am attracted to a life of service because I need to feel that it was worth it. This need was obvious that I'm often sick as a child and get the idea that I was not good enough and not worth much as a child healthy. So that was my first "trick of the mind," as Andy. "

Thompson comes to the "mental traps" that negative thought patterns that describe reinforced by repetition.

"The truth is that at the deepest level, the unconditional support, even if we do not know. If nothing and gave us everything we think we do not have enough, the universe offers us an unlimited amount of them. Protection and security, we seek is within us. "

Thompson will give tips on how to use the power of the mind to work for us and not against us, and it is clear that the people to love yourself, before you can begin to love others.

"We must love, no matter what happens, I think is worth loving, alignment of a love that is not dependent on the success or approval and love as much as possible, whenever possible .... Especially deserve not only our to love ourselves, we can not live without him, "Thompson said." We need to be friendly with ourselves, compassion, and accept that we are not to judge or to leave. start we must, for us, no matter what . the second part is that gratitude is the fastest way to love. A closed heart can be dangerous for your health. "

Wait until you are very sick and then expect doctors all do not resolve with prescription drugs and painkillers. Physicians in the practice of treating a patient as" downstream "known how do we prevent "up" to disease or infirmity, is a minimum in the first place, and I hope to keep other medications. "

You can choose to be happy or you can wallow in negativity attached to this belief is justified with a litany of complaints .... Attitudes and can be changed."
