“All of your body is in your mind, but not all of your mind is in your body.”
Born in Dordrecht, Holland in 1924, Jack Schwarz was one of the most internationally recognized authorities on the voluntary control of internal states and energy systems. From a very young age, Jack was able to manage pain and voluntarily attain specific brave wave states.
Dr. Jack Schwarz was a naturopath, humanitarian, author, minister, philosopher and pioneer in holistic health education. He spent his life focusing on the integration of the whole person in body-mind, brain and spirit.
Jack’s amazing capacities for healing and systems management were studied by the great psychologist and researcher Dr. Elmer Green at the Menninger Foundation, and by other scientists for decades. He had the capacity to control pain, blood flow, blood pressure, brain states, and healing times, and was able to heal his body within hours of injury.
Jack was committed to teaching that these abilities are shared by all human beings and therefore can be learned and understood by everyone. He worked to demystify the science of self-healing and meditation and allow any interested party to unfold this capacity in themselves. He provided practical steps to reach a state of profound meditation and he paved the way for his own students to take the process even further.
One of the demonstrations at the Menninger Foundation entailed putting a long sail makers needle through his bicep without bleeding (don’t try this at home). Jack’s explanation of why he didn’t bleed, when normally a person would bleed, was the he was putting the needle through ‘an arm’ but not his arm – in other words he moved his attention from his ego self to his higher self. When he reversed the process, the wound bled profusely. When he moved his attention back to his higher self, the bleeding stopped immediately.
Your practical application of this capacity to manage bodily states comes not just from Jack but also from one of his long time students, Asara Lovejoy, author of The One Command.
The 6 Basic Steps to accomplish changing your states are:
Ground – which means sending your energy into the earth to reconnect with your energy centers.
Align – means aligning your heart energy to the energy of the unified field.
Go to theta (the theta brainwave) – with your eyes closed, roll your eyes up as if you were following a golden beam of light out through the top of your head and out into the deep black velvet of space – this automatically and energetically moves you to the theta brainwave.
Command – a silent command in your mind and emotions to communicate your intention to your subconscious, such as…..
I don’t know how I (am/do/have)________________________, I only know it is so now, and I am fulfilled.
Example: I don’t know how I am strong and healthy, I only know I am now and I am fulfilled…..
Or – I don’t know how I am financially secure, I only know I am now and I am fulfilled.
Expand – allow your Command to expand into an idea greater than yourself – you are connected now with the profound information of the unified field and your own greater capacity.
Receive in Gratitude – feel your sense of gratitude for this fulfillment and know that when your thoughts reach your DNA, new programs or patterns are created. There is a significant amount of research that indicates that living in gratitude changes your life for the better, and we know that what you put your attention on expands – whether it lack and limitation, or abundance and success.
Quantum physics and research by such luminaries as Dr. Bruce Lipton (cellular biologist), Dr. Joe Dispenza (who healed his own spinal injury), and Dr. Randy Jirtle director of the Laboratory of Epigenetics and Imprinting at Duke University, demonstrate the actual capacity to change you DNA with your thoughts.
Epigenetics – The field of epigenetics refers to the science that studies how the development, functioning and evolution of biological systems are influenced by forces operating outside the DNA sequence, including intracellular, environmental and energetic influences – including thought.
Sound unbelievable? Well, your outcomes give you evidence of your thoughts. In a very interesting research study done at The Institute for HeartMath Research, DNA was collected from volunteers and put into test-tubes. The test-tubes were held by other research subjects and the subjects were asked to think negative or unhappy thoughts while holding the test-tubes with the DNA. The subjects mentally referred back to truly unhappy memories of events in their lives. When the test-tubes were collected and re-tested, the DNA was damaged by the negative thoughts.
The DNA was replaced in the test-tubes and given back to the test subjects who were asked to now think about happy times and happy events. When the DNA was retested after the subject held the happy thoughts and memories, it had already begun to repair.
So what thoughts are you holding about your body? What thoughts are you holding about your emotional health? About your relationships? And about your finances?
Our old learning taught us that we were pre-programmed, pre-set in what we could think, do, accomplish, or even survive. It was not that long ago that we had every reason to believe that if our genetic pool included heart-disease, cancer, or insanity, then we were destined to follow these paths.
We now know that we have much more Mastery over our lives. The lessons from Jack Schwarz are part of the picture of what we are actually capable of accomplishing in our lives. Change your thinking and change your life, the choice is always yours and there are coaches, classes, books and information on the internet to help you expand your own life. Live Long and Prosper.
