Dead Motor Car

Blog Posted:8/1/2011 2:15:00 AM
Busted Motor Car….Don Johnson
In order to fix your car you can try visualising a dead water pump working, spinning,
(I did) see it not leaking, see a zigzag pattern being formed over a head gasket crack to seal a gasket leak.(I did)
See your thermostat opening to allow your car to cool down the engine.(I did)
My car used to boil and I took it to a Holden dealer, after paying $104 for a quote which said bad water pump, cracked head and damaged water thermostat, I was told $1000 for parts and $1000 labour they quoted and said. I was disgusted…using visualising I kept the car driving, I would be driving and see the temp gage rising towards the red and would begin using the pictures of a working spinning water pump, a working thermostat opening, and a pattern on the head gasket forming using the above pictures in my head. Drove it 500 miles up to Mt Morgan and 500 back, plenty
of visualising to get me there and back.
Then it got hot again after I returned to Brisbane, id stopped visualising.
So I jerked out the thermostat and no more trouble….$2000 saved ???

More learning with my old car, I stopped at the supermarket and returned to drive home. It wouldn’t start, tried visualizing a white narrow strip broken in the middle,
Then saw it joining itself to make a complete strip. The bloody car started!
This strip was for me a token broken electrical connection in the ignition system, possibly the onboard computer. Since then it has died again and with my narrow image strip being reconnected the car starts. Is it a coincidence, or imagination, definitely imagination.
Thats what visualization is!
You must have faith in it working for it to have a chance of working, any doubt and you waste your time. You do create with your mind, your thoughts become reality!

The dentist drills and I don’t feel; it I put myself under hypnosis…chant it aint gonna hurt and it don’t …hurt…get my filling that wayJ
Learned to switch off pain when I was smashed up in a car accident in 75
Id say there you go bye bye and it would go…the pain of a broken leg, busted ribs,
broken collarbone and 3 broken toes…the mind and imagination is powerful !
Toothache …visualize it healing …it can work…
A 1964 year model filling fell out in 2007, went to the dentist, she said ” its infected I will put in antibiotic and a filling, but I cant promise you will keep it! ” So I had a few tooth pains but I kept insisting it would heal and it did, I visualized a blue light which can heal internally and kill infection (according to the Edgar Cayce readings, good enough for me)…more training on teeth, a wisdom filling from 1964 broke out of the tooth taking the back wall. She said its rotten, need needles to cut out the nerve and back fill it, no guarantee yet again. Complete faith in the dentist, no more problems.
So when you get a toothache, do try to heal it, have faith and it will work, rotten teeth need some help thoughJ SO YOU CREATE WITH YOUR MIND.

Too Funny Frank, Well I will take the needle for pain anyway, might work for you Frank but when I lie there fantasizing about being in the arms of Kevin Sorbo, out of no where one of the kids will pop up saying " Have you seen my gym shorts" and THEN the pain hits, so needle it is, mommys aren't good at self hypnosis, we want to know whats going on around us every second ( or the kitchen could get burned down)Totally cool blog though Don, if it works for you thats fantastic, my little brain is too easily distracted
