We're all familiar with the "placebo" effect - IE a sugar pill having the same effects as the medication. Our minds are so powerful that this phenomenon has even been demonstrated with "pretend" surgery. But many don't know that the opposite effect also holds true - the "nocebo" effect - IE when you expect to experience a negative event, like a side effect from a medication or pain after a procedure, you are more likely to experience just that. What are you creating in your life - pain, happiness, abundance, fearful events? You are literally thinking your experiences into existence.
