Upon being handed a journal as a gift, a nine year-old asks his mom what it was. The mom says that it was a notebook to record his thoughts and feelings, every day. The kid replies, "You mean, it is a blog...on paper." Reader's Digest, Oct 2008 issue

Russian Experiment with Mind - Physical Effort

Based on the Autogenics from Vera Fryling, M.D.

According to some reports, in the 1980 Olympics the Russians used a similar technique. They split their athletes into four groups: Groups A through D. Group A used 100% traditional physical practice; Group B 75% physical 25% mental; Group C, 50% physical – 50% mental and Group D was 75% mental and 25% physical practice. After the Moscow Olympics and the Lake Placid Olympics these world class athletes scores were tallied and those in Group D had won the most medals.

This knowledge that the power to imagine is more powerful than physical practice is being used from medicine to the arts. Many famous musicians practice as often in their mind as they do with their instrument, Pablo Casals, world greatest cellist, being one of them.

This power cannot be underestimated. You can prove it to yourself by taking one thing that is very important to you and imagining it as real in your life. You have nothing to lose by applying this technique, and everything to gain.
