If we observe our human body, many of the body activities are controlled by the autonomous nervous system that takes care of the body without our awareness or interference. This is the miracle of body intelligence.
Deepak Chopra, a quantum biologist who gave a new paradigm to body-mind connection, said that the body is a quantum mechanical device and that it is subject to the laws of quantum physics, not Newtonian physics. In 1986, he changed the way many of us looked at our mind and how the body handles the rejuvenation process. The older wisdom had pegged it at 7 years while Deepak Chopra revised it to one year (approximately 98% totally renewed).
Based on the estimates of quantum biology, you have a brand new stomach lining every 4 days, new skin every 30 days, a new liver in 6 weeks, even the skeleton is replaced every three months. Within one year, almost 98% of our body is new! Such a revelation fundamentally changes the way we assist people in the healing themselves and others.
The human body consists of sixty trillions of cells living in total harmony. Each individual cell has intelligence itself and can survive if isolated and even if the nucleus is removed when it is a part of the larger whole – the body. It is not the intelligence of the individual cell at work but a central intelligence that governs and this ensures that this remarkable system of our human body can work smoothly.
Since the unconscious mind (also known as the “body-mind”) is the controlling intelligence in the body, it is also the connection between the mind and the immune system. Expression of the mind is body and experience of the body is mind. So it is not surprising that over 85% of our physical ailments are influenced by the mind and are psychosomatic. The mind has the power to both cause and cure diseases.
PET scanners show that memories evoke different chemical patterns in the brain. Instantly, this information is spread through the body to the cellular structure. We then react to these memories. In fact, if we don’t carry the disease bio-memory, after one year, the disease will leave our system with new cells. Why do people suffer from relapse of the same disease or cancer after treatment? This is because the bio-memories carry the same blueprint of the same disease and send them along with the new cells. That is why our health is a result of all the thoughts, ideas and beliefs we have about health. Our body is truly a reflection of our mental patterns.
If you are sensitive of your body, you will understand that it has deep wisdom and a natural ability to renew and heal itself. However, learning to trust this body intelligence without the interference of our unconscious mind is the first step towards self healing.
