What do I mean by Mind Body Connection?
The Mind Body Connection that we rely on at the Lightning Process is the physiological consequences of the actions of the mind over the body. We are not talking here about a spiritual or transcendental connection.
In a drug trial comparing chemotherapy to a dummy pill, what causes 30% of those on the dummy pill/placebo to lose all their body hair? Researchers found it’s the power of the mind-body connection
They also found that different colored pills are more effective in different countries. And that knee surgeons in Houston achieved equally positive results whether they performed a genuine operation or just made an incision but nothing else. So, what is going on that’s helping people get physical change in these cases?
Again researchers point to the power of the mind-body connection.
Does the Lightning Process use mind-body connection?
This is just some of the wealth of evidence that our minds do affect our bodies. Although there are a lot of tools used in the LP technique, at the core of the LP, the use of the mind-body connection is vital.
As the result of the latest scientific discoveries in neurosciences, the Lightning Process was born. For the last 30 years, Phil Parker, the designer of the LP, has been researching this and how we can access and use the mind-body link. You can read more about his research, the mind-body link and so much more in his book “An Introduction to the Lightning Process“.
The self healing technique that emerges from his research is at the cutting edge. The Lightning Process® method will give you the tools to regain control over your mind… And the different factors that influence your health! Don’t be the victim of your mind body connection, be in charge of it!
You can also buy the book here. Alternatively, you can buy this product from Phil Parker. It is an audio version of the book (thought slightly different). In spite of the modernity of the media, I am still sticking to the book where I can make annotations and highlight what I want to remember. Old school you see!
Here is another book about the mind-body connection

Neuroscientists Richard Davidson, Amishi Jha
and clinical mindfulness expert Jon Kabat-Zinn
discuss the science behind the mind-body connection
A very interesting article by Michael Mosley (click on the image here below), where he explains a study about placebo and pain. He explores this simple but important question: “Could taking a placebo, a pill which contains nothing but ground rice, really help cure back pain?” This article shows again the power of your brain and in which conditions its power is the most efficient.
And finally, a Ted Talk about how your mind “hallucinates” your reality but perceptions (internal or external too). Very interesting to see how your mind is in control of your body!
