The Power of a Thought

Most people can understand that a thought can make you sick.  For example, if a student before their exam has a thought that "Oh my god, Iam going to fail", he or she will instantaneously feel sick, feel butterfly in his or her stomach, the heart rate will increase, and sometimes, if it is severe enough, he or she may even feel like vomitting.  So if a thought can make you sick, hence it is reasonable to assume that the reverse is true as well, that is, a thought can make you better.

This is the power of a thought!

This is one of the essence of Cognitive Therapy and we will explore Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in future publications.
