The Placebo Effect – Words and Beliefs Are Powerful
Happy Wednesday, my friends.
You probably know that the first hurdle every prospective drug must jump is The Placebo Effect. Did you know, though, that it averages about 22 percent?
I’m not surprised is you didn’t. It’s not a number the pharmaceutical industry has a vested of interest in advertising. That means, on average, patients taking a pill, with no known curative affects, get better 22 percent of the time just because they believe they’re taking medicine that will help them.
That’s WITHOUT even trying. Imagine how powerful your mind can be when you focus on an outcome.
It’s not to say that we don’t need medicine or that our thinking alone can heal us. I think it’s powerful tool in your toolkit, though, and one you certainly want working with you and not against you.
Your beliefs and your words have so much power! They can help you be braver, stronger, and more resilient. Here are a few #Rayquotes to add to the magnificent manifester that is your mind.
Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
