YOUR EMOTIONAL SELF: Your Key to a Better Life

Your emotional self operates at the very core of your life, affecting everything you think and do!
This is not just some interesting idea; it is borne out by
scientific research that demonstrates that your emotional brain - your limbic system - operates like a central clearing house.
Everything - your thoughts, beliefs, ideas, plans, fantasies etc. run through it where they are filtered and 'color' your perceptions and therefore the reality you perceive, respond to and  participate in creating.
Knowing this, it's easier to see how your emotional life affects
your feelings about yourself,  your relationships, your parenting of yourself and your children and grandchildren, your mental health, your ability to understand your own needs and motivations and those of others as well.
Your emotional life profoundly affects your physical health as
well. The pathways and mechanisms through which this happens were identified by Candace Pert, PH.D., who demonstrated that each thought you think has a parallel physical molecule that runs through your body. This "thought molecule" instructs your physiology in how to proceed. In other words, your thoughts ceaselessly produce physical changes!
A major boost was given to this astounding fact by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., who demonstrated that both your genes and your DNA not only can be - but are -manipulated by your beliefs. In other words, your beliefs are what control your biology whether or not your beliefs are right!
How is this possible? Because every single one of the 50 to 70 trillion cells in your body is always busy adapting to our
environment - and when you change your emotional environment you change the environmental signals that elicit the behavior of your cells. In this way your emotional self is literally in charge of your cells!
This flies in the face of the current Western medical paradigm
that sees the existence of a physical symptom as a  disease - a stimulus for a bodily war that requires application of external weapons, usually in the form of prescription drugs.
Shifting your mind-set to take the new, paradigm-shattering
research into account, instead of attacking diseases or
dysfunctions from the outside, you'd  work from the inside -
partnering with your emotional self to shift your internal
environment in the direction of better health and functioning.
Unfortunately few of us are well enough acquainted with our
emotional selves to do this. After all, we've been conditioned from the beginning of our lives to not only accept, but actually demand these external weapons.
To understand our emotional selves, how to develop and integrate them and how we can raise our own emotional intelligence and live a fuller life, I teach a ten-hour, online course called the Emotional Development101 that begins as soon as you register!

Does It Contain This Essential Ingredient So Important To Your Success?

Health and fitness plans have several components.  Include them all and you're in the best possible position to succeed.  Forget one of them, and you may have set yourself up for failure.

One of these elements stands out as much more vital to your success than any of the others.  In fact, if you want to carry out your plan successfully and reach your health and fitness goals, be sure to include this essential ingredient.

Am I talking about nutrition? An aerobic component? Perhaps stretching? Resistance training? Or even rest? No, no, no, no and no!

What is it then? Quite simply, it's the one essential component that's so crucial, that without it, you're much more likely to face frustration, even failure.

This is the emotional element. Why is this so vital? Quite simply, because your emotional state has far more to do with your success in sticking with your health and fitness plan than any other factor!  
Here are ten different bodily symptoms that can pester and worry you and make you suffer. You'd never think they might all be connected to one root cause, but indeed they can.

See if you can guess their common root (no peeking!)

Here they are:

1. Rash that itches like poison oak or poison ivy.

2. Difficulty urinating - having to push to empty bladder or bladder leaking.

3. Back problems - can make muscles not work right so if you bend or twist some muscles will not cooperate and can even pull your vertebrae out of alignment.

4. Short term memory problems - brain fog, Can't remember the intention you had even one moment ago.
"The killers stress and depression invade from the world of thought and emotion into the immune system, where they weaken the body's resistance."
