True freedom, at least while we are here on this planet, is something you can only have in your own mind. The body is not free, not yet. Because the mind doesn't know how to heal it, or control it, yet. The heart and soul are not free because we do not know what it means completely yet. But I believe we are beginning to know that our minds are free to choose what we wish to ponder. It's wide open. Through imagination and creativity of the mind is how most of our doors have been opened. Sadly, some won't grant this freedom to others, but we can do it anyway.
I believe we can heal our bodies with our mind. Through all kinds of different ways. The energies out there that heal are different for everyone. But each of us knows what makes us happy or has in the past. Creativity is one of mine. Excercise, sex, laughter, meditation, water etc. I think one day we will be able to think ourselves back to health, or with another person we trust. Or never really get that sick because we are at some level of balance. At least I think that is where we are headed with all this research we do into human behavior and metaphysics.

Could you expand on what you meant by the mind doesn't know how to heal the body? What kind of healing did you mean?
You say the mind is free but I have found this is only the case in a few, most are still conditioned by society and therefore think accordingly. Survival, work and relationship worries also play on many minds which detract from experiencing freedom of the mind. Even if such a place is reached what about our imagination doesn't that need a helping hand? My opinion is it does. It's hard to explain but a good analogy would be imagine you are rich but have never seen a shop in your life, you are told you can buy anything. The chances are you will only come up with a small list of things to buy that doesn't actually compare to what is available. Similarly if the mind has not been exposed to what is out there then the chances are it is not capable of 'seeing' clearly.
Simply by not creating the need to have disease and physical problems. Being able to control our consciousness, or more accurately NOT control our consciousness by the pressured standards of belief systems, so that there would be no need to experience it. And should we falter on occasion, we might stop or reverse the process. Not unlike everyone saying stress causes cancer. In a way I believe it is true for all diseases and ailments. That they are all caused through our own reality creation. Are you familiar with the you create your own reality theories? Law of Attraction for example?

Using the mind to manipulate our cells towards some healing that otherwise would not have occurred?, A torn ligament for instance, is unlike most other parts of the body, for it has no means to naturally regenerate, always requiring surgery, and so your saying that I or future generations of me will be able to conciously control body processess and heal ligaments? like telepathically? Ive been cut many times before and I have always healed, but I did not need to use my mind to do so. Please explain to me how humans would start to acquire this ability. And I believe that things like lucid dreaming are the pinnacle of our freedom of experience because we are both the environment and the seer, but can we eat lucidly?, procreate lucidly?, protect ourselves lucidly?, make money lucidly? Please tell me how we could ever practically use our minds alone to heal ourselves.
