Scientific Healing Affirmations

Why scientific healing affirmations can work to help us improve our bodies ability to heal. How they work can be explained by the Tetris Effect and a weird thing your brain does as a result of this effect.

Scientific Healing Affirmations: The Science

According to Wikipedia: The Tetris Effect or the Tetris Syndrome happens when people spend so much time in an activity that it begins to pattern their thoughts, mental images and dreams. It is named after the video game.

Those who play video puzzle games such as Tetris in time may start to see moving images, like in the game, at the edges of their visual fields, on closing their eyes, or when falling asleep.

They may at times think about ways real world items can fit together using a similar logic as when playing the game. The Tetris effect is considered a form of a habit.

This effect can happen with other video games as well as non non-video games, such as the the curved lines of a jigsaw puzzle.

A form of the Tetris effect can be experienced when a person spends a long time at sea and first steps on the dry ground. The lack of the feeling of the rocking motions is at first disconcerting.

The effect is a shift in the way our brains think and process things. It happens as a result of doing something over and over so that our brains incorporate it into all of our thinking. Understanding this process, it is possible to tap into this effect and change the way you think and change your life. This process our brain goes through is why scientific healing affirmations work.

Scientific Healing Affirmations

The repetition of playing Tetris causes a patterning of our thoughts. This may cause us to take the gaming thinking to overflow into real life. In my personal experience, it helped me to rock at packing trucks on the loading dock of freight companies when I was younger. I had a knack of knowing how to pack the trucks full of boxes and crates high and tight with no or very few open spaces.

The same applies to healing. Part of the healing process our bodies go through is in our mind. No doubt you have heard of the Placebo Effect

The Psychology of Affirmations

Just as when you were in school and repeated things over and over to memorize, our brain responds to that kind of thinking. Doing something over and over causes our brains to think we need to be good at doing this. When our brains try to learn and remember skills, going over and improving previous learned skills. Thus, it runs a program where it is practiced even when we are not gaming.

Maybe you heard of the studies where people practiced bowling in their minds, shooting basket ball hoops or other things and improved their scores, even though they did not physically practice. This demonstrates the power of our minds, if we tap into that power.

Now imagine that instead of playing a game or being involved in sports, we game our brain or game our thoughts in order to improve our life, to improve our health. In effect, hack our brains using the Tetris Effect to change the way we think. We change the way we think to change our life or improve our health.

Affirmations: Dreaming of Tetris

Just as the Tetris Effect is our brains way of trying to learn and remember a skill, the same can happen in our dreams. In our dreams we review things we do over and over and create subtle improvements that show in our waking moments.

So to, the affirmations we program our brains over and over with the words we use and these may show up in our dreams. Just as our brain tries to solve a puzzle, likewise our brain tries to fulfill the challenge we put before it, namely, attaining the thing we are affirming.

For instance, if you need to be more outgoing for business reasons or personal choice and your affirmation is, "I choose to be more socially outgoing and to speak to strangers. As you repeat this over and over, even saying it into the mirror, you will start to see opportunities to do it and at times you would have previously passed up, you will take the time to fulfill your affirmation. Most likely it will be a positive experience that will make it easier to do it next time.

What does this have to do with health though?

Where there may be a tendency to give up, to give in or just accept your health as it is. What would happen if you had a healthy obsession to get better. How can an obsession be healthy. Simple, when it is stealthy. In other words, when your mind is constantly working subconsciously to solve your challenge, in effect obsessed with getting you better.

Affirmations and Being Positive

There should be no surprise that one of the benefits of the Tetris Effect is improving our positivism. This likewise, is important to healing.

Why do we ruminate over insults or criticisms, sometimes for decades? Why do some have a greater challenge with depression than others? Why do political smear campaigns usually work better than positive ones?

This is all because of our brains 'negativity bias.' Our brains tend to have a greater attraction to the negative than the positive. As a result, we focus on that and it tends to be our own personal self fulfilling prophesy.

One study involved showing pictures that aroused positive feelings, ones that show negative feelings and those that produce neutral feelings. The study involved recording the electrical activity in the cerebral cortex of the brain. The researchers found that the brain reacts more strongly to stimuli it considers negative. This results in our attitudes having a greater influence from the negative than positive news.

Some will argue that the negative bias is most likely to keep us out of harm's way. Regardless of the reason for it, we know it can be unlearned.

While the Tetris Effect may seem to control us, we can use it to change the way we think. In addition to being more positive, it can help us to attain a fundamental shift in thinking that can change our lives.

Just as people bring the Tetras Effect into daily life, seeing boxes or buildings and mentally arranging them, we can train our brain to see positive things all around us or we can train our brain to fit improvements into our lives that we otherwise may not feel adequate for.

In Tetris, in order to get a piece to fit as it is falling, it can be spun around and shifted side to side to find its best fit. Likewise, we can spin thoughts around in our head and shift them as well. Can we see a positive in any negative thing that happens? Even the Bible suggests this is possible. It says "...Day of ones death is better than the day of our birth?" Why? Where is the positive? Because at birth, we have not made a name for ourselves. We have not accomplished anything good or bad. Also, for the mourners, going causes us to reflect on how fleeting life is and to appreciate it even more.

Likewise with our minds, start by creating an affirmation of where you want to be, what you want to do, what you need to accomplish. Make it pithy if you can. Make it complete. Make it specific.

How much do you want to make a year. What kind of car, model, make year, color. What kind of person do you want to be. What would you like to accomplish? Perhaps even more important, what health issues do you want, no, need to improve? What condition do you need to improve to have a better quality of life?

Create Your Own Affirmation

While you can write affirmations on numerous aspects of your life, we will focus on the scientific healing affirmations.

Once you know what you want, write it out and create a memorable pithy affirmation. You can grow it as needed or shrink when appropriate. Just do it.

Then start to repeat it. Every day, on awaking, say it to yourself. Before sleep, say your affirmation. Then print it on a card and look at it in your bathroom. Put it on your fridge. Put it on the dash of your car.

Say it to yourself in the mirror as you look at yourself

The point is, by making the saying of it a habit, it taps into the Tetris Effect. Go....start to create a scientific healing affirmation for yourself. Once our brain taps into this effect, our mind starts to make it part of who we are. It makes completing the affirmation our mission in life. This happens both on a conscious and subconscious level.

When you come up with and start repeating the words, it helps your subconscious mind make the scientific healing affirmation happen, it makes it come true....for you.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
