For example, when the brain produces serotonin, dopamine or oxytocin, you feel well, happy and soothed. Conversely, if your body releases cortisol when you are stressed, you will feel completely different because your metabolism goes into “survival” mode.
And what happens when we do not feel any particular emotion, neither positive nor negative? Let’s see how it affects our body and our life.
The consequences of negative thoughts on health:
Positive versus negative
Is there a duality in this world? Of course, to a certain extent, but we spend most of our time defining and judging what is considered positive or negative. The brain is a very powerful tool, and when we start to define something, we start to feel it in our world. Have you ever noticed, for example, that when someone drives and is cut off, sometimes that person loses his good mood and starts to feel a lot of negative emotions?
While another person, if it is cut off the road, will simply brake and continue his day as if nothing had happened. It’s exactly the same situation, and yet, in one case, one person conceives it negatively and the other positive. So, are things de facto positive or negative? Or would it not just be who we design and define them as positive or negative?
Reduce your perceptions as much as possible
After thinking about it a little, you will probably realize that there is no positive experience, no negative experience, and that we define them as such. So our own perception of an experience or situation has the power to change our reaction when it occurs, and how our body will be affected. We can then work on how we define an experience and point ourselves to a state of mind, awareness and enlightenment such that we can simply accept each experience for what it is, and use it as a teaching. We are not there yet, so it is important to understand how certain emotions affect our health.
The connection between the body and the mind
This connection between the body and the mind is very powerful, and although it is not visible to the naked eye, the influence of our mind on our physical body is profound. We can have an overall positive attitude, and directly deal with our inner problems, while putting in place a healthy lifestyle. Or we can be negative, have devastating thoughts and ignore our inner problems, sometimes even hiding them with affirmations and positivism without looking further, which amounts to adopting an unhealthy lifestyle.
Our emotions and experiences are essentially energy, and they can be stored in the cellular memory of our body. Have you ever had an emotional event that caused you pain or pain in one part of your body? As if you could still feel this event in your body?
It is quite possible that this is due to the fact that in this area of your body, you still retain the energy caused by this experience, and that it remains stored in this body area. Here are some parts of the body and the different emotions that may affect them:
- Nape : refusal to see the other side of things, inflexibility and stubbornness
- Shoulders : they represent our ability to conceive life experiences positively. Our attitude can turn our lives into a burden
- The spine : it represents the supporting column of life – The upper part: lack of emotional support, feeling of not being loved, of retaining one’s love – The middle part: feeling of guilt, being stuck in the past, to have “heavy things to wear” – The bottom part: fear of money, lack of financial support
- Elbows : represent the change of way and the acceptance of new experiences
- Wrists : represent movement and ease
- Hips : fear of moving forward, making important decisions, lack of opportunity to move forward
- Knees : pride and stubbornness, the ego. Inability to bow. Fear, inflexibility, inability to give
- Ankles : inflexibility and guilt. Ankles also represent the ability to receive pleasure
- Onions on the feet (hallux valgus) : lack of joy in the face of new experiences in life
- Arthritis : feeling of not being loved, criticism, resentment
- Joint pain : represent changes of course in life and ease of movement
- Sprains : refusal to go in a certain direction in life, anger and resistance
- Bone Fractures : Rebellion Against Authority
- Herniated disc : indecision, feeling of not being supported at all in life
- Hygroma (on the elbows, knees …) : anger not expressed
- Impotence : need mental rest
- Inflammation : fear, see red, inflamed thoughts
- Loss of balance : scattered and scattered thoughts
- Stiffness : rigid and unyielding thought
- Sciatica : hypocrisy, fear of money and / or the future
When you feel pain, stiffness or injury in certain parts of your body, it is often linked to an emotion that you feel deep down inside of you. At first glance, it may seem that this is not the case, because we are generally very distant from ourselves and from our emotions in this fast-paced world. But it is often true.
When I suffered from chronic back pain, it was not with exercise, gym or any other physical remedy that this pain left. It is by caring for the emotions that were behind these pains. I know it because I spent time and money on physio sessions, and even though I was hoping and I wanted to get better because of that, there was something left to settle. The more I treated this unconscious cause and the emotions that my body had stored up, the more the pain subsided before disappearing.
When we get sick, or we feel very tense or sore, most of the time, it is our body that asks us to observe ourselves and find peace with ourselves and your environment. It is an apprenticeship and a process of growth that we must neither judge nor fear.
You have the power
Davis Suzuki wrote in The Sacred Life: “The condensed molecules of our exhalation, our verbal expressions of rage, hatred and jealousy, contain toxins. By accumulating them for an hour, these toxins are enough to kill 80 guinea pigs! Imagine the harm you do to your body when you remain prostrate in negative emotions or do not develop emotional experiences and remain stored in your body?
Remember that you have the power in you to go through all that life puts in your way. Instead of labeling an experience based on your perceptions as positive or negative, try taking a step back to have a more panoramic look. Ask yourself whether it will allow you to see or learn something, or to realize something about another person and to accept it.
It does not matter what it is. Instead of reacting simplistically, take the time to observe things. You will discover that you have the tools to develop your emotions and illnesses quickly when you perceive them as they are and you ask the question of their existence. If you constantly believe that you are going to get sick, and that you think you are feeling pain for reasons that are necessarily external to you, you will continue to have them uncontrollably until you realize the control that you have over these things. events and what you attract inside your body.
