Emotional Alignment & Optimum Health

It is my experience:

Everyday healthy, well adjusted people, seldom hold a place for constructive anger; very few of us interact with own personal negative emotions from a place of consciousness, empathy, or kindness to ourselves.

Emotional Alignment & Optimum Health

If you are “normal” it is common when being upset or pushed to our limits for you to:

  • Blame yourselves or others

  • Feel guilty

  • 2ndguess yourselves

  • Drive yourselves crazy with chatter in your

  • heads

  • Ignore it and hope it will go away

What holds these common reactions in place?

World Views

  • Science - takes a mechanistic view – emotions are something to be fixed

  • Religion – take a traditional view – too many negative emotions are area sign of weakness and are to be shamed. We need to ask forgiveness for having them.

Neither Science or Religion have taught us to feel

friendly toward our more challenging emotions.

Neuro-Science:

  • Is changing the way we think about our brain, our bodies, and our over all path to well-being

  • It has discovered that there are neurotransmitters in the heart – brain cells that are identical to the neurotransmitters in the brain.

  • Is showing us that your heart has an intelligence, it can send messages that can over ride the mind’s messages.

Neuroscience:

  • When you learn to pay attention to your heart’s message

    • It opens the door for a whole body awareness

    • This awareness gives you control over bringing greater peace, harmony and health in your life

    • Embedded in these concepts is that emotions are not something to be feared, but interacted with toward a positive end

Neuro-science:

Neuroscience is now learning what

philosophers have been attempting to

get us to understand for centuries:

The heart is the source

of well-being in all ways:

Mental, Physical, Spiritual

Emotional Alignment & Optimum Health

  • Simple Exercise:

    • Breathe more deeply into your body and let yourself relax

    • Put your attention on your heart beat

    • Attempt to see it, hear it, feel it

    • Notice the chatter in your mind may slow

Ask yourself gently:

“What would it be like, feel like, seem like as I am focusing on my heart beat, to feel appreciation? To feel gratitude? To let go for just this minute and allow my muscles to relax?”

And then just wait for an answer to bubble up – even if it is just silence.
