Well, we can make ourselves sick or healthy just by thinking about it. This is not just anecdotal, it has been proved by experiments with placebos.

It shows we can trick our brains. Then again, our brains can trick us (and who are we?). I love those trick drawing, oh what is the word? I will have to visit Google.
Would it be right to say that our brains do a lot of automatic actions, whereas we also use them for thinking. Yes, when do we CONSCIOUSLY use our brains?
Catharine, you must be the expert in all this.

GG. OPTICAL ILLUSIONS = trick drawings.
