Rabbi Yehudah ben Natan was walking behind Rabbi Hamenuna. He sighed.

Rabbi Hamenuna said, “Someone here wants to bring suffering upon himself.”

For when you fear a thing, you open a door for it to enter.

Talmud Brachot 60a.

The Baal Shem Tov taught, “Where a person’s thoughts are, that’s where he is, all of him.”

So if you want to be healthy, put yourself in a healthy space.

Think healthy thoughts. Say healthy things.

Don’t even say you are sick. Say you are recovering, becoming healthy. Getting stronger and stronger each day.

As the Rebbe wrote to someone who complained about his ailments, “I have told you many times: You are a healthy man. Think that way.”​​
