Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, and researcher, is author of the bestseller Power vs. Force. He discovered that when you harbor negative thoughts — such as complaints, accusations, or hatred — toward others, you reduce your energy level and carry a low vibration frequency.
Vibration frequency is often referred to as a magnetic field. Dr. Hawkins believes many people get sick because they lack compassion, love, and tolerance. They are often miserable and depressed and prone to physical diseases.
Positive energy level
Studies have shown that the vibration frequency has a range between 1 and 1,000, with 1 being the lowest and 1,000 being the highest. So far, the highest vibration frequency Dr. Hawkins has encountered was 700. When a person has a particularly strong frequency, their presence can affect the magnetic field over a wide area.
From a medical point of view, Dr. Hawkins believes that thoughts are powerful and have a significant impact on human health. Positive and optimistic thoughts combined with a loving heart are indispensable elements for good health.
Negative energy level
Dr. Hawkins investigated tens of thousands of cases globally, and the results were always the same: As long as a person’s vibration frequency is below 200, that person will be sick.
High frequency thoughts — such as compassion, love, tolerance, and gentleness — carry a frequency of between 400 and 500.
Conversely, anger, blame, resentment, jealousy, and selfishness carry a very low vibration frequency that can cause cancer, heart disease, and many other illnesses.
Secrets to longevity
Interestingly enough, diet and exercises are not the most important factors to longevity. Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, a 2009 Nobel laureate in physiology, summed up the factors for longevity: If you want to live for more than 100 years, reasonable diet accounts for 25 percent, other factors 25 percent, while psychological balance accounts for 50 percent. To be a centenarian, the following points are worth considering:
Good mood vs. bad mood
If you are restless all day and your mind is filled with anger, tension, greed, and bad thoughts, your body will produce stress hormones that will damage your body’s immune system.
Psychologists have found that when you are extremely angry, your body can produce enough stress hormones to kill a mouse. However, when you are happy, your brain secretes dopamine and other beneficial hormones. There is a shared trait among centenarians — they all have joyful hearts.
Goal setting can stimulate the vitality of life
When people don’t have a goal in life, death often becomes their final goal, and their mental health suffers. Maintaining a positive attitude and striving to find ways to achieve a goal will stimulate brain cells and prevent early aging.
Cultivating compassion and doing good deeds
Psychiatric experts say that doing good deeds fills your heart with joy, leading to the suppression of stress hormones, and increasing production of beneficial hormones.
A harmonious relationship with family members is another way to prevent the release of stress hormones. At the same time, when your emotional needs are met, you will feel joyful.
Kindness begets kindness
Many psychiatrists believe that giving from a kind heart is the prevention and cure for depression.
