Voodoo or rather its Black Magic offshoot is practiced in certain parts of the world and sometimes a curse is put on someone and that person dies. There is absolutely no medical reason for the person to die, and yet their belief in the curse and the suggestion of it is enough to bring about their demise.
I wonder if the media in America does the very same thing by constantly suggesting that one in four people will get this disease and one in six people will die of that disease. And the people believe in this; just like Black Magic they oblige by dying.
Some years ago it was noticed that French people generally eat a high fat diet and yet they have less heart disease than there is in the US. It has been suggested that maybe drinking red wine as the French do somehow prevents the buildup of the bad cholesterol in the body.
Maybe so, but can it also be that heart disease is not in the psyche of the French people as a Nation? Maybe they are not being told constantly by their media that heart disease is the number one killer in their country.
In many European countries, cancer and not heart disease is said to be the number one killer. So is this too a case of a prophecy causing the outcome?
I have said this before, but it bears repeating. Much of the medical profession now accepts that prayer can help a person heal. What is a prayer but a positive thought. It is not the ritual or the actual words spoken in the prayer, but the belief in the outcome; in other words, faith. Without the belief that there will be a positive outcome the prayer will not work.
So if a positive thought can bring about healing, is it not entirely possible that a negative thought caused the malady in the first place. What other explanation is there for an otherwise healthy person to die as a result of a Black Magic curse other than the power of thought and suggestion?
Thoughts are like seeds and there is no distinction as to whether a thought is positive or negative; whether the ritual is a religious prayer or some Black Magic rite. It is not the thought, but a person’s belief in the outcome that causes the seed come to fruition.
Do you have any thoughts on the power of thought?
