Modern-day science has shown that talismans like the Blessing Cloth can provide real, measurable benefits.
Our belief systems work at a neurophysiological level. The body responds to the quieting of the mind by altering heart rate, respiration and blood pressure, and chemical endorphins can produce a sense of contentment and euphoria. This boosts immunity and numbs pain receptors while providing a sense of well-being.
Meditation and prayer are now considered important additions to certain health care treatments. There is reason to believe that spiritual practice, such as with the Blessing Cloth, can affect medical and life outcomes in a positive way for those who believe; discomfort is eased and a mood of peace and relaxation is created.
These benefits also extend to family members and other observers who view this form of spiritual self-help as beneficial for everyone around a distressed loved one.
The use of blessed objects with prayer or meditation is a powerful form of complementary self-care. People of all faiths use spiritual cloths as a way to focus their hopes for healing, love, prosperity and personal happiness.
