The Secret To Health

The Secret To Health



Our body is really the product of our thoughts. We're
 beginning to understand in medical science the degree 
to which the nature of thoughts and emotions actually
 determines the physical substance and structure and function
 of our bodies. 


We've known in the healing arts of a placebo effect. A placebo
 is something that supposedly has no impact and no effect on
 the body, like a sugar pill.

 You tell the patient that this is just as effective, and what
 happens is the placebo sometimes has the same effect, if not 
greater effect, than the medication that is supposed to be 

                                                           The Secret to Health 126
 designed for that effect. They have found out that the human
 mind is the biggest factor in the healing arts, sometimes more 
so than the medication.

 As you are becoming aware of the magnitude of The Secret, you
 will begin to see more clearly the underlying truth of certain occur-
rences in humankind, including in the area of health. The placebo 
effect is a powerful phenomenon. When patients think and truly
 believe the tablet is a cure, they will receive what they believe, and
 they will be cured. 


If somebody is in a situation where they're sick and they have
 an alternative to try to explore what is in their mind creating 
it, versus using medicine, if it's an acute situation that could 
really bring death to them, then obviously the medicine is a 
wise thing to do, while they explore what the mind is about.
 So you don't want to negate medicine. Every form of healing
 has a place.

Healing through the mind can work harmoniously with medicine. If 
pain is involved, then medicine can help to eliminate that pain, which
 then allows the person to be able to focus with great force on health. 
"Thinking perfect health" is something anybody can do privately
 within themselves, no matter what is happening around them. 


The Universe is a masterpiece of abundance. When you
 open yourself to feel the abundance of the Universe, you'll 

                                                           The Secret to Health 127
 experience the wonder, joy, bliss, and all the great things that
 the Universe has for you —good health, good wealth, good 
nature. But when you shut yourself off with negative thoughts,
 you'll feel the discomfort, you'll feel the aches, you'll feel the 
pain, and you'll feel as if every day is painful to get through.



 We've got a thousand different diagnoses and diseases 
out there. They're just the weak link. They're all the result of 
one thing: stress. If you put enough stress on the chain and 
you put enough stress on the system, then one of the links

 All stress begins with one negative thought. One thought that went 
unchecked, and then more thoughts came and more, until stress 
manifested. The effect is stress, but the cause was negative think-
ing, and it all began with one little negative thought. No matter 
what you might have manifested, you can change it.. . with one 
small positive thought and then another. 


Our physiology creates disease to give us feedback, to let us
 know we have an imbalanced perspective, or we're not being 
loving and grateful. So the body's signs and symptoms are not 
something terrible.

                                                          The Secret to Health 128
 Dr. Demartini is telling us that love and gratitude will dissolve all 
negativity in our lives, no matter what form it has taken. Love and 
gratitude can part seas, move mountains, and create miracles. And
 love and gratitude can dissolve any disease. 


The question frequently asked is, "When a person has 
manifested a disease in the body temple or some kind of 
discomfort in their life, can it be turned around through the
 power of 'right' thinking?" And the answer is absolutely,


Laughter Is the Best Medicine


I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I truly believed 
in my heart, with my strong faith, that I was already
 healed. Each day I would say, "Thank you for my 
healing." On and on and on I went, "Thank you for
 my healing." I believed in my heart I was healed. I saw 
myself as if cancer was never in my body.

 One of the things I did to heal myself was to watch very funny
 movies. That's all we would do was just laugh, laugh, and
 laugh. We couldn't afford to put any stress in my life, because
 we knew stress was one of the worst things you can do while
 you're trying to heal yourself. 

                                                            The Secret to Health 129
 From the time I was diagnosed to the time I was healed
 was approximately three months. And that's without any 
radiation or chemotherapy. 

This beautiful and inspiring story from Cathy Goodman dem-
onstrates three magnificent powers in operation: The power of
 gratitude to heal, the power of faith to receive, and the power of 
laughter and joy to dissolve disease in our bodies. 

Cathy was inspired to include laughter as part of her healing, after
 hearing about the story of Norman Cousins. 

Norman had been diagnosed with an "incurable" disease. The 
doctors told him he had just a few months to live. Norman decided
 to heal himself. For three months all he did was watch funny
 movies and laugh, laugh, laugh. The disease left his body in those 
three months, and the doctors proclaimed his recovery a miracle. 

As he laughed, Norman released all negativity, and he released the 
disease. Laughter really is the best medicine. 


We all come with a built-in basic program. It's called "self-
healing. " You get a wound, it grows back together. You get a
 bacterial infection, the immune system comes and takes care of
 those bacteria, and heals it up. The immune system is made to 
heal itself 

                                                            The Secret to Health 130

Disease cannot live in a body that's in a healthy emotional 
state. Your body is casting off millions of cells every second,
 and it's also creating millions of new cells at the same time. 


In fact, parts of our body are literally replaced every day. 
Other parts take a few months, other parts a couple of years.
 But within a few years we each have a brand new physical

If our entire bodies are replaced within a few years, as science has
 proven, then how can it be that degeneration or illness remains in
 our bodies for years? It can only be held there by thought, by ob-
servation of the illness, and by the attention given to the illness.

 Think Thoughts of Perfection

Think thoughts of perfection. Illness cannot exist in a body that 
has harmonious thoughts. Know there is only perfection, and as 
you observe perfection you must summon that to you. Imperfect 
thoughts are the cause of all humanity's ills, including disease, 
poverty, and unhappiness. When we think negative thoughts we
 are cutting ourselves off from our rightful heritage. Declare and
 intend, "I think perfect thoughts. I see only perfection. I am perfec-

                                                          The Secret to Health 131
 I banished every bit of stiffness and lack of agility right out of my
 body. I focused on seeing my body as flexible and as perfect as a 
child's, and every stiff and aching joint vanished. I literally did this 

 You can see that beliefs about aging are all in our minds. Science 
explains that we have a brand new body in a very short time.
 Aging is limited thinking, so release those thoughts from your 
consciousness and know that your body is only months old, no
 matter how many birthdays you have chalked up in your mind. 
For your next birthday, do yourself a favor and celebrate it as your
 first birthday! Don't cover your cake with sixty candles, unless you 
want to summon aging to you. Unfortunately, Western society has
 become fixated on age, and in reality there is no such thing. 

You can think your way to the perfect state of health, the perfect
 body, the perfect weight, and eternal youth. You can bring it into
 being, through your consistent thinking of perfection. 


If you have a disease, and you're focusing on it, and you're 
talking to people about it, you're going to create more diseased 
cells. See yourself living in a perfectly healthy body. Let the
 doctor look after the disease. 

One of the things that people often do when they have an illness is
 talk about it all the time. That's because they're thinking about it all 
the time, so they're just verbalizing their thoughts. If you are feel- 

                                                                                     The Secret to Health 132
ing a little unwell, don't talk about it—unless you want more of it. 
Know that your thought was responsible and repeat as often as you 
can, "I feel wonderful. I feel so good," and really feel it. If you are
 not feeling great and somebody asks you how you are feeling, just
 be grateful that that person has reminded you to think thoughts of 
feeling well. Speak only the words of what you want. 

You cannot "catch" anything unless you think you can, and think-
ing you can is inviting it to you with your thought. You are also 
inviting illness if you are listening to people talking about their
 illness. As you listen you are giving all of your thought and focus 
to illness, and when you give all of your thought to something, 
you are asking for it. And you are certainly not helping them. You 
are adding energy to their illness. If you really want to help that
 person, change the conversation to good things, if you can, or be 
on your way. As you walk away, give your powerful thoughts and 
feelings to seeing that person well, and then let it go.


Let's say you have two -people, both stricken with something, 
but one chooses to focus on joy. One chooses to live in 
possibility and hopefulness, focusing on all the reasons why
 she should be joyful and grateful Then you have the second 
person. Same diagnosis, but the second chooses to focus on the
 disease, the pain, and the "woe is me."


When people are completely focused on what's wrong and
 their symptoms, they will perpetuate it. The healing will not 

                                                           The Secret to Health 133
occur until they shift their attention from being sick to being 
well. Because that's the law of attraction. 

"Let us remember, so far as we can, that every
 unpleasant thought is a bad thing literally put 
in the body." 


Happier thoughts lead to essentially a happier biochemistry. 
A happier, healthier body. Negative thoughts and stress have
 been shown to seriously degrade the body and the functioning 
of the brain, because it's our thoughts and emotions that are 
continuously reassembling, reorganizing, re-creating our

No matter what you have manifested in regards to your body, you
 can change it—inside and out. Start thinking happy thoughts and 
start being happy. Happiness is a feeling state of being. You have
 your finger on the "feeling happy" button. Press it now and keep
 your finger pressed down on it firmly, no matter what is happening
 around you. 


Remove physiological stress from the body, and the body docs
 what it was designed to do. It heals itself. 

                                                         The Secret to Health 134
You don't have to fight to get rid of a disease. Just the simple proc-
ess of letting go of negative thoughts will allow your natural state 
of health to emerge within you. And your body will heal itself.


I've seen kidneys regenerated. I've seen cancer dissolved. I've
 seen eyesight improve and come back.  

I had been wearing reading glasses for about three years before I 
discovered The Secret. One night as I was tracing the knowledge of
 The Secret back through the centuries, I found myself reaching for 
my glasses to see what I was reading. And I stopped in my tracks.
 The realization of what I had done struck me like a lightning bolt.

 I had listened to society's message that eyesight diminishes with
 age. I had watched people stretch their arms out so that they could 
read something. I had given my thought to eyesight diminishing 
with age, and I had brought it to me. I hadn't done it deliberately
 but I had done it. I knew that what I had brought into being with
 thoughts I could change, so I immediately imagined myself seeing
 as clearly as when I was twenty-one years old. I saw myself in dark
 restaurants, on planes, and at my computer, reading clearly and
 effortlessly And I said over and over, "I can see clearly, I can see
 clearly." I felt the feelings of gratitude and excitement for having
 clear vision. In three days my eyesight had been restored, and I
 now do not own reading glasses. I can see clearly.

 When I told Dr. Ben Johnson, one of the teachers from The Secret, 
about what I had done, he said to me, "Do you realize what had 

                                                                                    The Secret to Health 135 
to happen to your eyes for you to do that in three days?" I replied,
 "No, and thank goodness I didn't know, so that thought was not
 in my head! I just knew I could do it, and that I could do it fast."
 (Sometimes less information is better!)

 Dr. Johnson eliminated an "incurable" disease from his own body, 
so the restoration of my eyesight seemed like nothing to me, com-
pared with his own miracle story. In fact, I expected my eyesight
 to come back overnight, so three days was no miracle in my mind.
 Remember, time and size do not exist in the Universe. It is as easy
 to heal a pimple as a disease. The process is identical; the difference
 is in our minds. So if you have attracted some affliction to you,
 reduce it in your mind to the size of a pimple, let go of all negative 
thoughts, and then focus on the perfection of health.  

Nothing Is Incurable


I always say that incurable means "curable from within."

I believe and know that nothing is incurable. At some point in time,
 every so-called incurable disease has been cured. In my mind, and
 in the world I create, "incurable" does not exist. There is plenty of 
room for you in this world, so come join me and all who are here. 
It is the world where "miracles" are everyday occurrences. It is a
 world overflowing with total abundance, where all good things 
exist now, within you. Sounds like heaven, doesn't it? It is.

                                                         The Secret to Health 136

You can change your life and you can heal yourself. 


 My story begins on March 10,1981. This day
 really changed my whole life. It was a day I'll 
never forget. I crashed an airplane. I ended up 
in the hospital completely paralyzed. My spinal cord 
was crushed, I broke the first and second cervical vertebrae, 
my swallowing reflex was destroyed, I couldn't eat or drink,
 my diaphragm was destroyed, I couldn't breathe. All I could
 do was blink my eyes. The doctors, of course, said I'd be a 
vegetable the rest of my life. All I'd be able to do is blink my
 eyes. That's the picture they saw of me, but it didn't matter 
what they thought. The main thing was what I thought. I 
pictured myself being a normal person again, walking out of
 that hospital. 

The only thing I had to work with in the hospital was my
 mind, and once you have your mind, you can put things back
 together again.

 I was hooked to a respirator and they said I'd never breathe
 on my own again because my diaphragm was destroyed.
 But a little voice kept saying to me, "Breathe deeply, breathe 
deeply." And finally I was weaned from it. They were at a 
loss for an explanation. I could not afford to allow anything 

                                                           The Secret to Health 137
 to come into my mind that would distract me from my goal or
 from my vision.
 I had set a goal to walk out of the hospital on Christmas. 
And I did. I walked out of the hospital on my own twofeet.
 They said it couldn't be done. That's a day I will never 

 For people who are sitting out there right now and are hurting, if I 
wanted to sum up my life and sum up for people what they can do in 
life, I would sum it up in six words: "Man becomes what he thinks

 Morris Goodman is known as The Miracle Man. His story was 
chosen for The Secret because it demonstrates the unfathomable
 power and unlimited potential of the human mind. Morris knew 
the power within him to bring about what he chose to think 
about. Everything is possible. Morris Goodman's story has in-
spired thousands of people to think, imagine, and feel their way
 back to health. He turned the greatest challenge of his life into the
 greatest gift. 

Since the film The Secret was released, we have been inundated
 with miracle stories of all types of diseases dissolving from peo-
ple's bodies after they watched The Secret. All things are possible
 when you believe. 

On the subject of health I would like to leave you with these illu-
minating words from Dr. Ben Johnson: "We are now entering the

era of energy medicine. Everything in the Universe has a frequency
 and all you have to do to is change a frequency or create an op-
posite frequency. That's how easy it is to change anything in the
 world, whether that's disease or emotional issues or whatever that
 is. This is huge. This is the biggest thing that we have ever come 

       Secret Summaries 

  • The placebo effect is an example of the law of attraction in action.
 When a patient truly believes the tablet is a cure, he receives what he believes and is cured.

  •  "Focusing on perfect health " is something we can all do within our-
selves, despite what may be happening on the outside.

  •  Laughter attracts joy, releases negativity, and leads to miraculous

  • Disease is held in the body by thought, by observation of the illness,
 and by the attention given to the illness. If you are feeling a little
 unwell, don't talk about it —unless you want more of it. If you lis-
ten to people talk about their illness, you add energy to their illness.
 Instead, change the conversation to good things, and give powerful 
thoughts to seeing those people in health. 

  • Beliefs about aging are all in our minds, so release those thoughts 
from your consciousness. Focus on health and eternal youth. 

  • Do not listen to society's messages about diseases and aging. Nega-
tive messages do not serve you.
