Just recently I watched this incredible documentary on Netflix called “HEAL“. I am not a movie person so for me to take the time out & actually watch something is a huge deal. Plus, I’ve only given like 3 recommendations of documentaries ever. So then, it must be big time for me to label this as noteworthy! (haha)
HEAL is a film about a scientific & spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. This is something that I already supported but it makes it that much more significant to actually have scientific proof confirm it. While this belief system can sometimes have a strong opposition based on the assumption that it is an absence of God, it is actually the reverse. The two literally blend together. Science & religion do not have to compete. They can & do work together in today’s world.
There are several widely known respected professionals that appear in this film. Just to name a few are – Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, Bruce Lipton & Gregg Braden. With these specialists featured, you know it’s good stuff!
According to the film’s website, ” … The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.” This type of thinking puts the responsibility on the individual person which can be hard to take ownership for. It’s easier to blame this illness and that sickness on hereditary genes; however, because we tell our “story” of the illness running in the family, we are, in reality, making this happen by speaking it as fact. We can stop this cycle. Stop speaking that fiction as your truth! OK, I know, I’ve probably gone a little deep here. Just watch the movie & give it a chance. Then get back to me with what you thoughts. I wanna hear how you liked it.
So, earlier in this entry, I mentioned that there were only a few documentaries that I’ve ever recommended. Well, in case you have some time to get caught up on your movie watching, here they are:
And please share what you think of these!
I am no Siskel & Ebert or Rotten Tomatoes but I can gauge a quality program. I hope you enjoy & appreciate it as much as I did. What are some of your favorites? Which ones do you recommend?
