This quote appeared on Abraham-Hicks’ Daily Law of Attraction affirmations.
Someone asked us recently, “Is there any limitation to the body’s ability to heal?” And we said, “None other than the belief that you hold.” And he said, “Then why aren’t people growing new limbs?” And we said, “Because no one believes that they can.”
Excerpted from the workshop in San Rafael, CA on Saturday, February 27th, 1999
What a poignant, obvious answer.
I am further convinced, daily, that we can do anything we concentrate on and want enough. Maybe not all at once — probably not all at once — but that positivity opens us to what we desire. As the Law of Attraction states, that which is like itself is called. As simple and as complicated as that.
I experienced a terrific example of this quote recently, after I fell and pretty well mashed the head of my tibia. First, a little background. Throughout my adult life, I have experienced almost uncountable opportunities to heal. I experienced no end of side effects from surgery — to the point that, when my eye surgeon started to give me the list of potential hazards following cataract surgery, I put my fingers in my ears and said, “La, la, la, la,” until he was finished. (I told him earlier that I’d be doing that, so no surprises.) For my earlier reactions to such info, see here.
This time, I was knocked out or in shock, so much so that I didn’t hear the list. Now I did experience problems in the hospital, in the week following the surgery, but they were diabetes- and kidney-related. By the time I got to rehab, I felt an overwhelming desire to heal, quickly, for the first time in my life. Add to that the extremely positive nature of the rehab itself, and I walked almost immediately, put away the walker the first week I was home, and never did use the four-wheeled walker with the seat, which therapists so wanted me to use.
I healed so quickly because I wanted to heal. I opened myself to the possibility of getting well again, quickly, and so I did. In addition, I began exercising regularly before the surgery, also due to good feeling. I was stronger and healthier and more in shape than I’ve been in too many years to count. So, twice the Law of Attraction helped me improve my life, visibly and virtually immediately.
I’ve depended on this power for a couple of years, now, and even the unhappy moments in my life are better as a result. All of this change for the better, because I decided I wanted to be happy, and kept believing while it happened.
So can we grow new limbs? Scientists are well along in research to do just that, and the general welcoming desire of the world for safer, healthier life is behind that and all medical breakthroughs of our time. Can anyone change the direction of his or her life in this way? Yes. It will likely take time and dedication, but the first step is to want to be healthier, happier, more in love, richer — anything we want we can have.
In the same way, if we think only of what’s wrong, of sadness and misery and the unfairness of life, we draw those qualities to ourselves. The universe believes that we want whatever we concentrate on, so it works both ways. Read here and here for a more detailed description of how this works. We can begin by identifying what we want. Then, if we can find one tiny part of ourselves to feel good about, we open our lives to the power of human hearts to change and improve our circumstances. From there, anything is possible.
