Is Self-Healing Possible?
Dear Ms. Morrill, I am writing you in regard to an article you wrote, 'Hypnosis and the Laws of Natural Healing'. I am 29 years old and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis nearly 13 years ago. I have tried every traditional medication, am currently on 7 pills 2 x/day, and feel like a walking pharmacy.
Most people have thought I was strange, but I believe many of the points you made! It sounds strange but when I lost the use of the right side of my body 2 years ago and neurologists wanted to place me in a wheelchair for the rest of my life saying my MRI showed that the brain lesions were so deep they would never heal again, I disagreed. I would lay in my bed at night, close my eyes, and silently 'talk' (if you will) to each affected body part. I would tell it to remember the days when it was fine, worked properly, envision it working again, etc. Within 10 weeks, I was able to stand on it again. I did the same with my completely paralyzed right arm...I too regained all use of the arm back within a couple months and am now only suffering from the loss of my fine motor skills in my right hand. An MRI at the end of the 10 weeks, revealed 50% of the lesions gone.
Neurologists were stunned and are still unable to offer an explanation. Everyone I talk to about my 'self-healing' thinks I'm crazy. Do you feel it is possible that I helped to heal myself? I still require a cane and cannot (no matter how hard I try) regain the fine motor skills in my hand. Do you believe with assistance, it is possible to heal those as well?
Well, I apologize for the length of this letter but I believe in hypnosis and had to write. I believe the bodies we inhabit are just that. I believe we can heal ourselves. Several times I have laid in darkness and felt I was inches from leaving my body. Please, don't think I'm strange. I am normal, in fact, but I wanted to thank you for your message and agree that there is so much our bodies are capable of doing that are yet to be discovered.
You leave me in absolute awe. Of course, I believe in healing. If I didn’t I wouldn’t be doing hypnotic work as a major part of my counseling practice. I believe our minds are incredibly powerful – that what you believe strongly enough can come true. I’m not simplistic enough to think that this is true of everything in the world, but I certainly have seen some amazing things happen in terms of our mind, spirit, and body improvement and even full cure through using one’s imagination. It’s why I continue to do this work. And a person like you gives me courage to continue.
Thank you so much.
