Can focusing foil healing?
Yes, it can? At least some types can.
Sometimes we get so involved in trying to do something that we loose our goal.
Some try to manage their problem. Think about it. If one focuses on the management, then he is saying that he must maintain the problem so he can be the manager.
In extreme cases the focus on management even becomes a bandage of honor. This gives even more motivation to maintain the problem.
It is politically incorrect to says this is what is wrong with programs like alcoholics anonymous (AA). They push people into management focus and not problem elimination.
True there maybe a management issue during the time of withdrawal. However that is not the long term solution to the problem.
In our example the Bible says about some people who used to be drunkards, “such some of you were.”
That was what they were, past tense, not what they had become.
But the focus of AA is getting up and saying regularly “I am an alcoholic”, present tense.
The problem persists.
When you keep saying I have the problem, you blueprint the problem on the subconscious. Then the problem manifests. In the example, they have the drinking monkey on their back. They may be not drinking, but they still have the problem, “I am a alcoholic.”
Dr. Joseph Murphy wrote much about this focusing principle and blueprinting.
He writes that your subconscious will accept your blueprint. Further if you have a bad blueprint, get a new one.
You might replace the “I am an alcoholic” blueprinting with “I was a drunkard but I am a tea toter now”. [tea toter – a non drinker]
[I use drunkard because alcoholic has the modern baggage of you have it forever. You do not need that.]
If someone offers a drink do not say “no, I am an alcoholic”. Do not say it; do not think it. Say the positive, “I am a tea toter now.” Each time you say this you are making a new blueprint. Eventually drinking is not your problem.
Where is your focus in your healing quest? On the problem? Focus on having the problem solved, gone, behind you. Blueprint that.
There is a truism, “What you resist persists”.
This principle is true in many medical issues.
