You Are The Placebo-Letting Go!
“We can’t create a new future by holding
on to the feelings and emotions of
the past.”-Dr. Joe Dispenza
This morning I was thinking, “I need to go back (refresh) and talk about something
I really love to talk about and I believe so much.”
Now you might be thinking, “What could that be?”
Well… it’s scriptural. In fact one of my many favorite scriptures.
Romans 12:2The Message (MSG)
12 1-2 “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday,
ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—
and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is
the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture
that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll
be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and
quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down
to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed
maturity in you.”
Simply stated it says, “Don’t be conformed to the ways of this world but be (being) transformed,
(HOW), by the RENEWING of your MIND, that you may PROVE what is the GOOD, ACCEPTABLE,
and PERFECT will of GOD.”
This is saying…we’ve got to “change”.
We’ve got to “be different” than others.
We’ve got to “continue learning”.
We’ve got to “show the way”.
In other words, as we learn what GOD really intended for us and start
acting and believing it, we’ll begin to prosper and be in health as our
soul (mind, will, and emotions) prospers (grows).
(We could talk all day about this alone.) but…
So here we go talking about Placebos, or what one today might
call “fake news”.
What do you think about placebos, and how do you feel about the use of them?
Have you ever had one?
Do you even know what they are???
Well.. the dictionary defines Placebo as: from the Latin as meaning
“I SHALL PLEASE” or “I PLEASE”.
The Placebo is otherwise a medically ineffectual treatment for a
disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the recipient.
TO DECEIVE means: to cause (someone) to believe something that is not true.
(Again, like “fake news”)
BELIEVE: That’s where it all starts…
The Bible states that “all things are possible to them that believe.”
So… let’s talk about the Placebo and the mind.
Dr. Joe Dispenza discusses in his book that we can change our minds and therefore
change our lives.
We have what we now have because of our personality (beliefs and actions).
He says, “Our personality creates our personal reality.”
WOW… we can think and talk about that a long time.
Our personality creates our own personal reality!!!
So, it’s been said by author Florence Littauer in her book PERSONALITY PLUS that there are basically four personality types.
There is a theory that suggests there are four fundamental personality types:
- sanguine (optimistic and social),
- choleric(short-tempered or irritable),
- melancholic (analytical and quiet), and
- phlegmatic(relaxed and peaceful).
Here’s a link to a personality test you can take to see who you really are:
Example of a temperament result:
■ 46% are Sanguine;
■ 42% are Choleric;
■ 38% are Melancholic;
■ 33% are Phlegmatic.
So where do you fit?
Most of us are not ONE TYPE ALONE but a mixture of the 4 types. Comment
below on what types you are and if you were surprised.
We’ll be delving more into this type of thinking over the next few blogs since
we’re talking about CHANGING OUR PERSONALITY TYPES, to change our
