Emotions bring to mind Joy, tears, sadness, grief, anger and a whole bundle of other feelings. It doesn’t bring to mind, for many, what exactly these emotions do to our bodies on a physical level.
When I first started writing this post I had a large list of chemical reactions the body went through while feeling emotions. From adrenalin and cortisol to dopamine and serotonin, to name only a few.
I was getting way to scientific, and to be honest I love what I call ,“emotional science”, but I know just enough to get myself in trouble. We realize that when we look at a sleeping baby we may feel an intense AHWWWWW feeling. On a chemical level it is releasing oxytocin. This chemical creates a feeling of being connected or feeling love. There are many emotions that create different chemicals in the body
Basically all you need to know, is every emotion you have, creates a chemical chain reaction. These reactions in the body either lift you up, with healing components, or take you down. Think about this while you are working on a healthier life, whether that’s in physical or emotional health, relationships, or career. You need to understand that by altering how you feel and respond to stresses in your life, will directly impact all of these areas.
If you are trying to heal a diseased body do you really think the feelings of anger, rage or hatred will help this condition? I think the exact opposite happens, it actually accelerates the disease.
On the flip side, positive feelings promote health, and put your body in a growth/repair state.
Many have used affirmations, to try to change their emotions, to repair their health. While this is a great start to making a change in your life, it isn’t the most effective.
If you are saying an affirmation that you are 100% healthy, and yet you are ridden with disease, you are essentially lying to yourself. This creates more stress, which of course releases more negative chemicals in your body, promoting the exact opposite of what you set out to do.
Working with The Healing Codes, we suggest focusing on releasing the negative emotions first. While actually doing the Code, the positive emotions or beliefs you need, are being uploaded at that time. By working in this order you are creating more loving attention your body and mind are craving.
Here is an example of steps The Healing Codes use to get you started.
- Find the negative emotion or feeling you want to change
- Put this emotion into your prayer or intention to be addressed or healed.
- Relax while doing the hand positions focusing on feelings that are uplifting, or the desired result you want. For instance how would it “FEEL” if you had complete health.
It’s really not complicated at all, and is just a matter of sitting down and getting started.
Let today be the day you allow your positive emotions to impact your life. After all emotions are NOT just feelings.
