For those who are Harry Potter fans, you may remember the time when Professor Lupin first taught young Harry the Patronus charm. What is interesting about this chapter in Harry’s journey is just how powerful the elements of this charm are. The parallels to activating your own healing energy are clearly no accident. You possess within you the very same power if you choose to apply it. You can access tremendous power in conjuring your very own Patronus charm. The key element is in activating your heart through positive energy.
The critical ingredient in the charm is the incantation ‘expecto pratronum’ when combined with a particularly strong happy memory. This is precisely the method to activate your heart’s healing energy. The charm is meant to repel Dementors, the dark energy that embodies our deepest fears. Think for a moment of the parallels. If you’re living in fear and stress, your body is weakened and the Dementors (fear, hate, anger, doubt) begin to harass and torment you. Your immune system isn’t functioning well when you’re emotionally drained and you’re susceptible to illness and disease. It’s only when you are in a peaceful, happy state that your body activates the energy that brings optimal health and raises your immune system to combat illness.
As I reflect back on the incredible wisdom of Gregg Braden and Dr. Bruce Lipton from their recent workshop, it struck me just how powerful this combination truly is. I can say from practical experience that when you activate your heart with gratitude and love, you signal to your body that you are in a happy and safe state – it’s as if there’s an invisible force-field activated around you. In that state then, the body activates the forces that combat illness and accelerates healing. On the flip side, I’ve experienced firsthand that stress, fear, and doubt weaken the system and the weaker I become, the more likely I am to catch a cold, the flu, or some other ailment.
The correlation between your emotional condition and overall health is clearly evident. If you reflect back on times when you’ve gotten ill, it’s very likely it was during a period when you have been feeling emotionally and physically drained. In that weakened state, your body lacks the resources to fend off that cold that’s been running around the office or a bug that has been making the rounds. Yet when you’re in a strong and positive state, your immune system acts as an armed guard holding illness at bay. The key then to optimal health is as simple as being in a positive heart space and connecting that energy with the rest of your body. A happy heart is a healthy body.
So next time you find yourself starting to get the sniffles or feeling the early stages of a bug coming on, pause and go into your heart. Center yourself and conjure up the most powerful, happy feeling you can in your heart. Let that feeling fill you up until you find yourself smiling or in a state of joy. Sit with that feeling and allow it to penetrate your entire body. In gratitude, accept the powerful release of energy throughout your immune system knowing you have just activated your reserves and they have reported for duty. I think you’ll find yourself happier for having done so and you just may discover that icky feeling you had dissipating.
