Emotions can have the tendency to make us ill when gone unmanaged, not putting it together with the physical body. Sometimes they can make one sick enough to physically change & alter the cellular movement of the body, generating illness out of the cause & effect of harmful mental emotional attributes that create havoc within the body. The truth is you don’t need an outside influence to become contaminated with germs, your mind alone can be its most infectious disease assaulting the body/ mind /spirit connections in ways you are unaware of.
Some of the uncommon things that can make us really sick are the things we wouldn’t expect to believe. Our environment, relationships, workplace, lifestyle in accordance with our emotions, thoughts & feelings can all have a major effect on ones health. Often times symptoms will begin to present itself when things seem to feel unbalanced in the daily life or not feeling emotionally/ physically stable & good about oneself. The body will begin to release & dump high amounts of stress hormones that begin to stimulate the chaos that sets off the cells to mimic a pattern that takes on an unhealthy life form all of its own.
Many times people are unaware of the universal connection outside the working of what is considered the mechanical body. If you are able to see & recognize the body as a whole unit that is connected to its surrounding & every thing around it, maybe one would be able to view their health from a different advantage. Most times people will automatically take a pill, overlooking habitual behavior, feeling or emotions that needs to be changed/ modified that has some degree deeply impacted the factor of their health.
Our body has 3 brains (brain, heart gut) that work in regulating the entire body. Our emotions, behavior & environment have a direct influence on how each operating system works within our own epigenetics, changing the way it reads the DNA sequences. In a world where everything can appear to be fixed by the magic pill, the truth is the pill is simply fooling the body’s systems into thinking its been modified, but the body is still in total dis ease without the pill, finding other pathways to rear its ugly head.
I hear people complain about how stressed & anxious they are in life, living in their own world that has emotionally began to destroy the nervous system. They can’t even rationally connect the dots to a realtionship, lifestyle or environment that is one of the major polluting factors. Instead the American solution has become a Xanax, which in itself has major implications & side effects. (cognitive dysfunction, constipation, difficulty in micturition, drowsiness, dysarthria, fatigue, memory impairment, skin rash, weight gain, weight loss, ANXIETY, blurred vision, diarrhea, insomnia, decreased libido, increased appetite, and decreased appetite, hypotension, sexual disorder, muscle twitching, and increased libido).
Sometimes the over use of unnecessary drugs will destroy the otherwise healthy cell soldiers, making it unable for them to do their normal job in protecting & healing the body. I was listening to a podcast recently, talking about the way our society has modified the time increments of grief. 50 years ago it was assumed & accepted that a year time frame was normal for a grieving person, mourning the loss of a loved before ever labeling one with depression. Now a days, the medical community will diagnose one as depressed if after 2 weeks they’re not getting better, prescribing anti depressants for a normal emotional response to loss. What does this now say about us as a whole & the inability to hold uncomfortable space for others & more importantly ourselves with our emotions.
HOW we are taught at a young age to manage our emotions is the designated operating skills we will have for our life time, until we decide to change. As an adopted child with a narcissistic mother my healthy emotions were used against me teaching me otherwise, not feeling safe with the people I use to call my parents. My inability to learn from them such basic human skills later turned into threads of explosive anger, because no one ever taught me how to regulate & communicate my feelings.
It wasn’t until I got married the 3rd time did someone point out that my emotional behavior was that of an abused traumatized person. My outbursts at the onset of disagreements was a fight/ flight response I embody as my nervous systems coping mechanism. Unknowingly this trans generational passage was then transferred to my own parenting skills which horrified me when being pointed out. Ive had open transparent conversations with my daughters, apologizing for my behavior, forgiving myself for not knowing any better.
I truly believe my spinal fusion C3-C7 was a direct result of the inability to express my long over due emotions properly & effectively, taking on a medical life all of its own. As a result of feeling the burden of weight on my shoulders, my neck suffered the consequence of the long term effects of emotional trauma that was never dealt with. During my recovery I decided I desperately needed to make some serious life altering changes.
I decided & chose to eliminate certain things that I knew full on externally contaminated the 3 brains that operate my bodies system. Unknowingly we at time hold onto these ideas, beliefs, feeling, thoughts, relationships, people & things as a blanket form of co dependency, which end bleeding into all the other attributes & areas of the mind body spirit connection. I began to take better care of my emotions, I stopped trying to hang around asshole people, I choose to not drink alcohol any more, I began to choose my friendship more wisely, I gave up eating dairy & drinking soda all together, quite smoking & drastically changed my lifestyle all together.
I pay far more attention now to how I feel in my body emotionally when it pertains to my environment & others. I did acupuncture, went to a healer, work out 5 days a week, walk a path of Mother Nature & crystal healing, practice what I preach, use self care, eat healthy, sleep 8-9 hours a night & had the audacity to become loyal to myself. Sometimes, it’s the health of our emotions that are the BIGGEST underbelly to our physical problems. Peace Love Faith Hope ❤ ❤ ❤
