Our Mind and Body Are Connected the As If Method

Our mind and body are connected. It’s true. Although many people think that they are separate, they actually hold great influence over each other. When you work on one aspect of self, you impact the other. Let me explain this. Have you ever felt really nervous? I know I have. Your mind may race, and your nerves jangle and these thoughts and feelings manifest on a physical level too. Have you ever experienced that dry mouth and headache when you were nervous and worried about what was to come?


It’s important to understand the mind and body connection. Let’s say you are waiting to be interviewed for a job and you become so nervous and are worried about your abilities. Let’s face it. It’s easy to be plagued by qualms and to start running a negative script in your mind. But think back to that experience, I bet it wasn’t just your mind that was affected but your body too. You may have felt a little nauseous while your tummy did somersaults and maybe, you even started sweating a bit. This proves that your thoughts and your emotions affect you on a physical level.

“If you feel stressed or have unresolved issues, they will only play havoc with your mind and body. If thoughts are negative, you really must identify and resolve them as it could lead to unhealthy behaviors and, you may even find you become unwell or ill. Of course, I am not implying that every single illness or accident that occurs is because of your mindset, but believe me, it plays a significant role. If you can understand this, you will be able to take greater control of your life.


Try thinking of your life as a big jigsaw puzzle, this really worked for me. I looked at each aspect of my life, breaking key elements into smaller pieces. I did this and learned that each part of my life had a significant role to play. When one part didn’t function well, it affected everything else. You cannot ignore the importance of your thoughts and feelings and how they manifest within the physical body.


Repressed memories may suddenly manifest into thoughts. When this happens, these are powerful and can have a far-reaching effect. It is important to deal with repressed emotions and seriously, having awareness gives you an advantage.

“When I was trying out As If, I took the time to think about my learned behaviors, those gleaned through parental advice or, through witnessing behaviors. I also looked at my personal experiences. I did this because when events occur, we react by way of information and experiences, these become reference points for our actions. If you can change these behaviors or experiences, if you can use As If to make your response to any situation more positive, boy, will you notice a significant difference. Simply, it becomes a reference point for your mind.
As If can be used at any time and in any place.


Let’s consider that you have some seriously challenging situations ahead of you. You may feel unconfident and doubtful and in some cases, perhaps that dreaded job interview, you may even be filled with dread. If you can tap into the ‘As If’ system and start to act as if you are confident, your thoughts will naturally become more positive. You’ll visualize strong images of how you want to think and act.
Once you start to feel more confident, your actions become instinctive and learned.”

“You’ll learn to understand your thoughts and be in control, readily identifying the inner two-way communication and making it work for you. Let’s be clear here. Your mind is powerful, and once you tame your thoughts and use your mind in the best way possible, you’ll improve your life.”

“When you are alert and ready for anything in life, your posture is also likely to be good. When you are less than alert or feeling down, you are likely to adopt poor posture. Try adjusting your posture, do it right now, sit up straight and pull those shoulders back. I bet you start to feel better immediately.


There have been many experiments into body language and so this is not me just saying it. Psychologists discovered that emotions may also have a strong connection with specific body postures. During these experiments, people were asked to generate a strong negative emotion – let’s use fear as an example and to place their body in a position that for them, depicted fear. When they had done so, they were asked to remain in this position but to also try to generate happiness, they found it much harder to do so. So, this links body posture to emotions.
It’s impossible to not get stressed from time to time.

We all know that life is stressful at times, but, the lesson of the day is that it’s how you deal with it that is the most important. Have you ever noticed that some people do not seem to react to daily stressors? They just deal with it… right? Think about a time when you have felt highly stressed and perhaps the outcome was not so good. Afterwards, we often have to deal with regret or, kick ourselves when we respond badly, but our responses are fueled by our learned behaviors, our thoughts and feelings. When using body language, breathing techniques and As If, we can change our actions.


If you had to face a similarly difficult situation next time, and used the ‘as if’ process, you would be able to outwardly project very different emotions, feelings and actions and, nip any damaging thoughts in the bud.”

Five Biological Types

img_0528
“Five Biological Types
¶ Human Analysis differs from every other system of character analysis in that it classifies man, for the first time, into five types according to his biological evolution.

¶ It deals with man in the light of the most recent scientific discoveries. It estimates each individual according to his “human” qualities rather than his “character” or so-called “moral” qualities. In other words, it takes his measure as a human being and determines from his externals his chances for success in the world of today.
These Rules Work
¶ Every rule in this book is based on scientific data, has been proved to be accurate by investigations and surveys of all kinds of people in all parts of the world.

These rules do not work merely part of the time. They work all the time, under all conditions and apply to every individual of every race, every color, every country, every community and every family.

Through this latest human science you can learn to read people as easily as you read books—if you will take the little time and pains to learn the rules which compose your working alphabet.

“Do What We Want to Do
¶ It is easy to know what an individual will do under most circumstances because every human being does what he wants to do in the way he prefers to do it most of the time. If you doubt it try this test: bring to mind any intimate friends, or even that husband or wife, and note how few changes they have made in their way of doing things in twenty years!
Preferences Inborn
¶ Every human being is born with preferences and predilections which manifest themselves from earliest childhood to death. These inborn tendencies are never obliterated and seldom controlled to any great extent, and then only by individuals who have learned the power of the mind over the body. Inasmuch as this knowledge is possessed by only a few, most of the people of the earth are blindly following the dictates of their inborn leanings.

Follow Our Bents
¶ In other words, more than ninety-nine per cent of all the people you know are following their natural bents in reacting to all their experiences—from the most trivial incidents to the most far-reaching emergencies.”

“Took It” from Grandmother
¶ The individual is seldom conscious of these habitual acts of his, much less of where he got them. The nearest he comes is to say he “got it from his father” or “she takes it from grandmother.” But where did grandmother get it?
Man No Mystery
¶ Science has taken the trouble to investigate and today we know not only where grandmother got it but what she did with it. She got it along with her size, shape and structure—in other words, from her type—and she did just what you and everybody else does with his type-characteristics. She acted in accordance with her type just as a canary sings like a canary instead of talking like a parrot, and just as a rose gives off rose perfume instead of violet.

This law holds throughout every species and explains man—who likes to think himself a deep mystery—as it explains every other creature.
The Hold of Habit
¶ Look around you in shop, office, field or home and you will find that the quick, alert, impulsive man is acting quickly, alertly and impulsively most of the time. Nothing less than a calamity slows him

“down and then only temporarily; while the slow, patient, mild and passive individual is acting slowly, patiently, mildly and passively in spite of all goads. Some overwhelming passion or crisis may speed him up momentarily but as soon as it fades he reverts to his old slow habits.

Significance of Fat, Bone and Muscle
¶ Human Analysis is the new science which shows you how to recognize the slow man, the quick man, the stubborn man, the yielding man, the leader, the learner, and all other basic kinds of men on sight from the shape, size and structure of their bodies.

Certain bodily shapes indicate predispositions to fatness, leanness, boniness, muscularity and nervousness, and this predisposition is so much a part of the warp and woof of the individual that he can not disguise it. The urge given him by this inborn mechanism is so strong as to be practically irresistible. Every experience of his life calls forth some kind of reaction and invariably the reaction will be similar, in every vital respect, to the reactions of other people who have bodies of the same general size, shape and structure as his own.”

REFLEXOLOGY

img_2392

Reflexology is an energetic foot therapy, that requires work on the feet and the reflex points. These reflect on specific areas of the body. The reflect points represent specific areas of the body itself as well as the organs and the glands. The reflexing of these specific areas creates a euphoric feeling consisting of relaxation.

Reflexologists work from the toes to the feet, heels, via a slow gentle progression reflexing the sides and the soles and then the tops of the feet. They also will work through points on the lower legs. These areas being worked allow the receiver, to feel an immediate stress reliever. The receiver learns that letting go, is the functioning tool to accomplishing this level of relaxation.

In ancient history, many cultures used healing the feel as a means for healing the entire body. Reflexology in Egypt- In Egypt, during the process of mummification they removed the souls from the feet that was known to free the soul to travel beyond the earthly planes into the astral planes.

In china, writings, as old as the fourth B.C, began to speak out on a therapy where pressure became applied to the fingers, feet , hands and ears.  (that was later called acupuncture)  Shogo Mochozuki- author and educator, tells us that in japan you can hear the proverb ” the foot is the gate of ten thousand different illnesses. The proverb illustrating the journey of reflexology, the ancient art was called over from china to japan. The Bible also mentions feet as a way of healing and to wash the feet of another was a symbol of humility and forgiveness.

Suggestion and It’s Influence over all Business


  • Suggestion is very prevalent in business. We are told “Uneeda Biscuit” or that “Coke is The Real Thing” or that “Puffer Cigars are Fragrant” or that “Have a Break, have a Kit Kat”. Everywhere we go, we are hit with messages containing some cleverly worded phrase, telling us either to do something or that a certain thing is true, in both instances the statement being connected with a certain product or idea. All these suggestions impress upon the public about the reality of the world whether true or not.

  • These advertisements seek first to arouse desire within us, and then to drive it home and transform thought into action by repetition of suggestion. There are some whose “want to” will be so vigorously aroused that they “must have it” in a day or so. Do not suppose for a moment that this clever advertising just “just happens” to catch your eye. These skilled advertisers, who are paid very large salaries, have been trained in the laws of suggestion, and they put their knowledge to practice every single day.
    Did you think that you bought a certain product because you were convinced from careful examination that it was just what you needed? Perhaps, but the truth is you bought it because the scientific advertiser had exerted his suggestions upon you, first by attracting your attention, and then by the insistent and repetitive statements regarding the fact that you needed that particular product. Of course the product may be good and well worth the money but the principle of suggestion was still in effect.

  • The psychological elements of a sale are implemented in a certain order. First the attention must be secured or else the salesman can proceed no further. Then follows the stage of interest or curiosity, which must be aroused before desire may be awakened. To arouse interest, the offer must be presented in an interesting manner with well chosen and properly delivered words. Then the desire is aroused for it is the motive power which leads to sales.
  • The customer must be made to want before buying. Masters of salesmanship and advertising understand the law of suggestion through repetition. They will artfully get in repeated suggestions by presenting the same statements in different terms, or by a flat repetition of an authoritative statement until the idea grows to be an old story with you, and one you never seem to question. Knowing that this is the way marketing works, you will never run out of ideas to market the same products to the same people over and over again.

  • Before the salesman uses suggestion on people, he uses it on himself first. Through auto suggestion, he impress himself with the idea of the value of the goods he is to offer to his customer, the fact that these goods are just what his customer needs and should have in his business, the fact that instead of asking a favor of his customer, the salesman is really doing him a good turn by bringing these goods to his attention. The salesman has to be sold on the product first before he attempts to sell to others.
    The salesman is also trained in the various psychological triggers that makes a person buy. He appeals to their desire for self improvement, recognition, convenience, social appeal, comfort, philanthropic aspirations and self gratification. It takes more brains to sell the goods than it takes to make them. Conviction may be imparted at will by those few writers who have closely studied the thought process by which conviction is induced. The mission of every ad is to convert readers into buyers.

  • Most people are just like everyone else. It is the natural inclination for people to blend in and be like one another. Original thought and individual style is more rare than generally imagined. Let a man show individuality of taste and action, and he will be looked upon as “weird”, “eccentric” and is avoided as “out of the ordinary” by the majority of people, unless he is sufficiently strong to force his ideas upon the crowd and thus set the fashion. Corporations create market demand by setting the trends.
    There is a tendency for the race to “get in line” or to “follow the leader.” To act like human sheep or geese makes it easy for them to fall into the habit of accepting suggestions. It is said that if the leader of a flock of sheep jumps over a rail of fence, the rest of the flock will follow. But when the rail is removed, the rest of the flock will continue jumping over the place where the rail had been.
  • That is why people still do certain unnecessary things in business to overcome obstacles that no longer exist.
    The value of a thing is usually formed by the suggestion of it. All products usually obtain their value by the suggestion of what they would do for their owners. That is why marketing is the key to all business transactions and commerce. Suggestion also influences what governments will do and the way people interact with each other. Suggestion is the force that rules the world more than anything else. Suggestion is the workings of consciousness, and everything is consciousness.
