“Have you noticed the effect of fear upon your face, eyes, heart, and other organs? You know the effect on your digestive tract of bad news or grief. Observe the change that takes place when it s found that the bad news is groundless. All negative emotions are destructive and depress the vital forces of the body. A chronic worrier usually has trouble with digestion. If something pleasant occurs in his experience, his digestion becomes normal, because normal circulation is restored and the necessary gastric secretions are no longer interfered with.
The way to overcome and discipline your emotions is not through repression or suppression. When you repress and emotion, the energy accumulates in your subconscious mind and remains snarled there…There is a spiritual and psychological way to follow in banishing the repressed or suppressed emotions inhabiting the gloomy gallery of your mind. The ideal way to rid yourself of these emotions is to practice the law of substitution…you substitute a positive, constructive thought for a negative thought.”
Dr. Joseph Murphy, in “The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind Power”
