Your Body’s Cells Listen to What You Say

ripple effectImagine a rock dropping into a still body of water that causes ripples outward in all directions. The same thing happens in your body (which is made up of 70% water) but with a thought instead of a rock. Thoughts are forms of energy reverberating into the space around you, including deep within your cellular structure. Your cells listen to what you say or think and respond accordingly, like ripples across a lake. Your cells listen to thoughts and words of other people as well.

One day in the early 1990s I was asked by a friend to accompany her to a Mensa meeting where she was speaking on Parapsychology. I thought she’d give a standard lecture to the high-IQ crowd, but she began the talk by requesting a volunteer from the group. She then “tested” the volunteer’s arm strength by having him hold it firmly out to the side while she pressed on it to see how strongly he could resist her pressure. His arm remained strong and steady. The volunteer was then sent out of the room and out of earshot. The group was instructed to think negative thoughts about the volunteer, even if he was a friend. The volunteer was then brought back into the room. Once again he was asked to hold his arm firmly out to the side and resist the pressure placed on it by my friend. This time he had no strength whatsoever. His arm collapsed down to his side.

Another volunteer was called. After the same routine the volunteer was sent out. But this time, the group was instructed to think the highest, most positive, loving thoughts about the person, how very much she was loved. The volunteer was brought back into the room. What do you suppose happened to her arm as she held it out for testing? It was stronger than it was before.

In these situations, the conscious mind isn’t listening, but your deepest cellular structure is. And because your cells are paying attention, you can speak to them. We all can speak to them. We can speak directly to an area of stagnation or congestion. We can speak to tumors. You can say, “All of my cells work together in harmony for my highest health and longevity. All of my cells communicate effectively with each other for my optimal health and vitality. Any cells not for my highest wellbeing and health leave me now.” Others can say on your behalf, “All of your cells are completely whole, healthy, and working together for your highest health, longevity, and wellbeing.” Your cells are listening.

    What a fascinating experiment you describe! I have often thought of speaking to my body, but being more specific about cells sounds even more powerful. I suspect I’ve not given my cells a consistent positive message! But I like the concept, and I think it would enhance my ability to give myself positive thoughts.

      Thank you Judy. We’ve not been taught how to speak to ourselves positively, or if we have, it’s been watered down in our cultural conditioning. So we can do it, and if we slip up, we can go back and make amends with ourselves!

    Seeing that experiment would have been so eye (and heart) opening. I fully believe that and think it will be fun to try with a group of my own. I really adore and appreciate the visual of the stone dropping into water. I am such a visual person and that reminder feels good to me. Wonderful post

      Thank you Kate! Yes, you can do the experiment on your own. Just be sure to reverse the process afterward on the person who gets chosen as the receiver of the negative thoughts so they get their cells filled with love and support in the end.

    This does work very well. I have had it done to me and was amazed. I have been using it quite a bit lately and my last 2 CAT scans were clear. Words and thoughts are very powerful.

    Very interesting! Our thoughts really do effect everything we do. Mindset is such and important tool to accomplishing anything — from improving our health to tackling a big project.

    I love your post, and your reminder that our bodies are made mostly of water. It really brings the point home– if you throw something in, it will ripple. Wow! This is powerful! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Yes, what we throw in ripples, Karo! Thanks for your comment, because keeping in mind the water balance within us is a good one.

    I love this story. It reminds me that the attitude I present to a stranger has everything to do with what kind of response I get in an exchange.

    For that matter, it’s the same with someone I know well. If I approach my spouse from a place of love even though we’re in disagreement, what better results I get than if I’m short-tempered!
    I appreciate the graphic story. thank you!

    The ability to harness our innate energy always seems easier said than done. I have heard of similar experiments with similar results. It is an intriguing reality that has certainly caught my attention!

    What a fascinating experiment. The power of thought is truly amazing. My own blog today started off with this quote from William James: “The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.” I think it ties in quite well with your points too.

    Our body knows so much and that exercise is so good. I use another muscle testing exercise with my thumb and middle finger when i am wanting to know what my body’s response is

      Hi Suzie! I like that way of muscle testing too. I recently heard of someone using your muscle testing technique with the produce at the store, to see which would be best for her. I haven’t tried it out yet, but it would be interesting to experiment with it.

    This is really great. I have heard of muscle testing before, and it sounds like the same thing as our cells listening. It makes such great sense that we are energy and we vibrate and our cells are responding to those things! What a great lesson!

      Billions of little ears listening to everything… thanks for your comment Deanna. It’s so fun to hear the ideas and thoughts of other bloggers!

    Wow that’s so interesting! I remember in the What the Bleep do we know, they talked about water and how it’s sturucture changed according to words written on the bottles. I now write affirming words on the 4lts bottles of spring water I used to refill my smaller bottles from so again another affirming message from the Universe. Also knowing health kinesiology as well ie the body doesn’t lie. Its also a reminder to think nice thoughts or as nice thoughts as you can about others.

      Thanks for your comment Jake! Those water studies were fascinating. And if we all could watch our thoughts, imagine how it could change our relationships with our fellow humans? Alas, we are human and some of those thoughts will slip out, but I like what you say about thinking as nice thoughts as possible about others, and if nothing else, we could have a little mantra when we know a judgment is coming on: “Om, Peace, Om…”
