Open heart, open mind
Last week, I spoke to you about the special key of light, a key of nature that tunes the cell's internal clock to maintain a steady 24-hour period. This daily tuning improves the efficiency of the cells, helping them anticipate the usual events happening during the day or night. A disturbance of the internal clock is a stressful event that can ultimately lead to a breakdown of the internal mechanism that keeps the cell in a good working condition.
This week's focus remains on the cell which is the building block that makes up our body. Although there are many different cells in the body, every cell works in harmony with the rest of the cells. The cells, like musical instruments that make up an orchestra, need a conductor that can keep the timing.
This is the master drummer I mentioned last week but they also need to cooperate with each other and to play in harmony to be able to produce good music. If this harmony is lost, it generates sad music which at a cellular level can mean the beginning of cancer.
Cancer cells are simply normal cells that have decided to become independent from the rest, uncooperative and egoistic. They no longer play at the timing of the conductor. They become selfish and start to play at their own pace indifferent of the rest. They start pushing and squeezing other cells in the orchestra until they take over and produce noise.
I want you to understand that you have the power to interfere with this orchestra of cells. With your thoughts and actions you can either disturb or else you can all help achieve internal harmony. Increasing your awareness of the interplay of your thoughts and actions with the wellbeing of your internal system is one other method that will help you in your quest to achieve inner peace.
Being a doctor makes it easier to understand this concept, but you do not need to be a doctor to embrace these ideas. You simply need the will to do it. You simply need to feel the music inside of you. After all music is the most ancient form of communication that originated much before language. We once spoke one language, a universal language, that had no geographical boundaries, the language of music.
I wish you all an open heart and an open mind.
