It is my firm belief that nothing holds greater value to your state of health than your own belief that good health is your birthright. I believe my natural state is one of good health. I do not anticipate getting ill and as a result I enjoy very good health. On the other hand I see many who plan on getting sick at regular intervals and, of course, they do. If I get exposed to illness, I mentally affirm that my immunity is strong and I will not be affected by the exposure. In fact, I tell myself that; “Every day in every way I’m getting better and better.” This is not a half-hearted wish, it is a strong expectant affirmation.
A French psychologist and pharmacist, ‘Emile Cou’e literally healed many of his patients by having them recite a healing affirmation multiple times a day. The affirmation takes about six seconds to repeat and may be repeated aloud or silently as many times a day as you wish. At first you may experience resistance but as you continue repeating the affirmation it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. The affirmation is simple: “Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” This method has become known as the Cou’e Method of conscious autosuggestion or cou’eism.
The beauty of the affirmation is in its simplicity. The affirmation requires no discipline whatsoever except remembering to do it. With repetition it becomes a habit. And when you accompany the affirmation with a strong visualization of its accomplishment you create the fulfillment of the affirmation.
I’m not saying that this affirmation is a substitute for medical care. It is a very powerful adjunct, and may well prevent the need for medical care. What I am saying is that your expectations and your belief in health as your birthright very strongly affect the state of your health.
A great book to read on this subject is written by Raymond Francis, a MIT-trained chemist. The book is entitled Never Be Sick Again.
For now, Earlynn’s just sayin’: “If you stay focused on the power within your own mind, you can ensure that “every day in every way you can get better and better.”
