I heard someone tell a story recently about a man who performed an experiment with cooked rice. He took two mason jars and filled them each with a cup of cooked rice from the same batch and sealed them with the lids. He labeled one jar “Good Rice” and the other “Bad Rice”. He put both in the refrigerator on the same shelf next to each other and every day for two weeks he would open the door and pick up each jar. To the jar labeled “Good Rice” he’d say things like, “You are the most fantastic rice I’ve ever made. Your flavor is like no other I’ve ever tasted. You are the best of the harvest. Wonderful.” To the other jar labeled bad rice, he say only the most repugnant things, like you’re a rotten batch of rice. You are disgusting and diseased. You look terrible.”

So the story goes, after two weeks of this, he opened the mason jar of “Good Rice”. It was still fresh and edible. The opened jar of “Bad Rice” had to be pitched because it was all moldy. He swore this was true. I’d like to try it, myself.

It’s true for mammals, though. If you speak over them kindly and make affirmations of worth and health and integrity, you’ll find it heals and calms and edifies not only temperament, but the physical functions. If you brow beat and tear folks down, they’ll have aches and pains and illness — real or imagined — will have a harder time recovering. That’s for real.

Thank you Constitutions Grandchild for taking the time to read this article. I saw that report on the internet a while ago.

That's what my cats tell me. And of course kindliness shown and affirmation given to others (particularly to my cats) heals and edifies my own body, spirit and mind.
