Everything – health and disease – begins in the consciousness, believes Martin Brofman, the architect of the ‘Body-Mirror’ system, who has healed and empowered many to have complete control over their destiny
Cancer begins in your mindDo you see your illness as an epiphanic moment, one that took you to a new realm of consciousness?
Absolutely. From the moment of my trip through the tunnel during an unsuccessful operation which had been intended to remove the tumour (I wrote an article about it at http://www.healer.ch/Tunnelarticle.html) I was opened to a new realm of experiences in areas that had never attracted me before. I had never before seen myself as a spiritual being in a physical body, and I had never before really realised the importance of being happy, nor the terrible physical effects of being unhappy. This opened my eyes.
What/who was the source of your knowledge? Could you share a little about your journey?
The tumour was in my spinal cord, I was told, between C4 and C7. After the operation, I was told that they could not reach the tumour, nor could they use radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
I was given a month or two to live unless I coughed or sneezed, in which case I could die immediately. My right arm had been paralyzed, my legs were spastic. There were sensations like electric shocks running up and down my spine and out to my fingertips and toes.
Eight months later, I was celebrating still being alive. I was in Club Med in Martinique, and I met a man teaching Zen meditation there. He told me, "Cancer begins in your mind, and that's where you can go to get rid of it." I understood at that time that the cancer was the result of the stress of the lifestyle I had lived. I also realised I would have to change my life. The message talked deeply to me because I always had faith in my strong mind.
Some weeks later, I went to hear an introductory talk of the Silva Method, which teaches how to use your mind as a tool, going to alpha states and using deep relaxation, affirmations, visualisation, and re-programming of beliefs. I decided to use the tools.
I worked on myself for two months, using autosuggestion, going to alpha three times each day and talking to myself in a positive way, and visualising what would happen in the doctor's office when I would be examined again. The doctor would scratch his head and say, "Perhaps we made a mistake, because there's nothing there now." I imagined the tumour getting a bit smaller each day.
Two months after I began to work with myself, it was the one-year anniversary of the operation, and I went back to the doctors to be re-examined. The doctor scratched his head and said, "Maybe we made a mistake, because there is nothing there now." I knew I was living a scene I had created.
During the two months of inner work I had also done a lot of research into various esoteric philosophies and Eastern traditions. The first exposure I had to the concept of chakras was through Ken Keyes' book, The Handbook to Higher Consciousness. Other sources included various kinds of yoga-associated chakras with various parts of the body, endocrine glands, nerve groups, etc. It seemed a logical conclusion to associate specific symptoms to specific chakras, and therefore to tensions in specific parts of the consciousness, with the idea that everything begins in the consciousness.
My initial research was intended to find information on my particular case – and after my healing, people were asking me to heal them – so I had many more examples to look at regarding the body-mind relationship and the inner causes to physical symptoms – and I got involved in functioning as a healer, and exploring healing as a co-creation – the effects of an interaction between two creators.
How open are people to accepting this approach of self-healing? Are the acceptance levels increasing?
It seems to me that acceptance levels have always been high, since I began teaching these methods more than 30 years ago. There have always been parts of the society open to these ideas, though lately, with the popularity of healing methods like reiki and Touch for Health, the idea has come to be accepted more within the mainstream parts of society. While at first, examples like my own were considered extraordinary, there are more and more people who have done the same thing, either healing themselves, or being healed with various non-physical tools.
How did you put together the chakra associated with each ailment? Is this validated with case studies?
Plenty of case studies, as you can see on my website Message Board at http://bodymirror.proboards42.com/index.cgi, and the success stories at http://www.healer.ch/success.html. Knowing the connections between the organs and parts of the body controlled by each chakra through each major plexus, and the parts of the consciousness associated with each chakra, it is then easy to put them together to understand the inner cause to each symptom.
What are the boundaries, if any, of self-healing?
We do not set any limits. We believe that anything can be healed. No matter what the symptom, someone somewhere has been healed of it – and if it has been done before, it can be done again.
What is your vision for this knowledge benefitting all the people in the world?
Everyone should know about the relationship between their thoughts and emotions, and their body, and the importance of being happy. It is like a User's Manual for the equipment we came to earth with, and unfortunately, not enough people know how to use it, or why things go wrong with it. It should be taught in schools.
When there are enough people in the world understanding these concepts to help themselves and those around them, the world will be a better place.
