abilities are 'senior' to physical abilities. That
is to say, with mental techniques one can do things
which one cannot do with the body or physical abilities
truth of the body/mind relationship is: As one thinks
- it is manifested in the body. By utilizing
the mind in specific ways - the performance of the
body is enhanced beyond its normal physical limits!
example of this is found in the mental technique called
Visualization. By 'seeing' in one's mind an image
of something which possesses the characteristic one
wishes - the energy fields of the body are immediately
altered to harmonize with the same frequency of the
image in the mind. That ability (whether speed, power,
stability, or agility, etc.) is then enhanced and
manifested in the body to a very noticeable extent.
following technical articles from a student course
manual contain a simple example of altering the physical
result through the influence of the mind.
