Body Achieves What the Mind Believes

Our bodies during chronic illness take a beating. They can become unrecognizable. We can lose control of everything. Our frustrations seem to increase with our illnesses. Then we remember, slow down, take a breath, get back in touch with what our bodies are truly capable of. Our bodies are designed to heal, not self-destruct.

We actually can paint our own picture of our own health and well being.

I push the Drainage Funnel a ton because I know it works. It can move illness out!!

Part of what makes it work is our own minds.

As we picture our internal organs doing their individual jobs of function properly, they function even better. As we picture the steps in the Drainage Funnel, each one starts to function better. As we grasp a minds-eye of our bodies working to heal by releasing toxins, the easier it flows.


A fun way to start picturing this is through dry-brushing. You can look at a chart and see what motions, which directions, you are to move your brush over your body. You can feel the motion as you are dry-brushing. Picture what is going on in the INSIDE of your body. Your lymph is being stimulated. Your blood flow is increasing. You are creating a gentle movement toward your heart to get lymph flowing in the correct direction.

Cool beans!!! Once you have conquered the internal visualization of dry-brushing, move on to the Drainage Funnel. While you are walking through the Drainage Funnel Steps, create a minds-eye of what your organs are doing to help your body move the bad guys out!!! Not “killing” and not “war.” Just gentle effective movement out of your body. And keeping the good guys in!!!!

Paint Your Own Health

As you learn to paint your own picture of YOUR health and well being in your mind, the rest of the negative messages are not so loud to distract you.

As always — I am not suggesting you ignore your medical needs and go into lalla-land. ADDING the mental component makes the healing journey more effective and ultimatley faster than ignoring it.
