To heal at the physical level, we first need to heal our thinking — exploring our beliefs, what they are, and why they came to exist.
Blindsight: A Quantum Life in a Human World author Mikal Masters is a living example of this. His book unlocks the unconscious existence from generations and centuries of negative beliefs. It’s a book of considerations.
While some of the concepts may seem a bit esoteric, Masters aptly organizes it as a sort of workbook where we can continually pause to reflect. He’ll ask the reader to make a consideration and will leave blank spaces within paragraphs for journaling. Blindsight is an essential journey in asking ourselves to consider what we perhaps have not in an attempt to create mind expansion and all levels of healing.
Masters hopes his reader will begin to find “increased fluidity of thought and augmented expansion of awareness” as they move from chapter to chapter.
In “Chapter III: The Human Disease” Masters suggests reframing typical questions like: “What will your future be?” “What kind of life will you have?” “Will you be successful?” to more fine-tuned questions like: “What will the next five seconds of your life be like?” “Will your next act in life be mindful, deliberate, and intentional or will it be reactive, predictable, and unconscious?”
The author introduces this reframe so that his reader enters the rest of the book with a critically thinking mind so they can ask themselves even more complex questions such as: “How do we know we exist?” “How do we know we KNOW we exist?”
In closing, Masters reminds the reader that limiting beliefs have undermined our collective drive to spontaneously evolve for centuries. Only now are we waking up to the idea that we are actually beings of intelligence and energy with the ability to heal from human disease, and the power to stop perpetual generational patterns that lead to more uncertainty and anxiety.
