“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”
Have you heard of that quote? Maybe it will have a whole new meaning to you now…

Have you bought into the ideas which claim if you change your thinking, you will change your life/health/body/mind? All that “stuff?”
Well, I certainly believe in it. My experiences with it and the results I have gotten from it have actually been incredible.
But, who cares what I say works, right? If people are going to believe in anything, it’s safe to say that most will want substantial evidence. You know… facts and proof. Not just my hokey pokey experiences.
So, with that, I will do my best to explain in a way that will hopefully satisfy those needs.
Let’s start here. Everything that happens in your mind has a physical representation in your brain. And then, obviously, everything that happens with your brain correlates with what happens in your body.
So, your perceptions, thoughts, feelings and emotions… all influence what is happening in your brain. Then, neurotransmitters like dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, will have its affects and show up in the body.
It is then powerful to recognize that your body, your environment, your personal relationships, your mind, your social interactions, your biology … they are all woven together. They aren’t separate, no siree bob. One doesn’t end and the other just doesn’t magically begin. They all flow into one another. When you understand that if you influence one, you will understand that you influence everything.
A wonderful illustration of how this whole process works is in Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Water Molecule Experiment. Basically he discovered a direct relationship between the construction of water molecules and thoughts, emotions, and prayers of the human race. Through photographs he documented his findings and showed that when positive thoughts and emotions, such as love, appreciation, kindness and joy were focused on samples of distilled water, the molecules formed delicate, symmetrical crystallized shapes. Think beautiful snowflakes. On the other hand, when the water samples were sent negative messages, filled with hatred and hostility, the water instead displayed chaotic fragmented structures.
With this in mind, let us consider that water makes up about 60% of human body and 70% of our brain. Do you see how it’s easy to understand the feelings and emotions that we get from certain relationships, environments or thoughts can indeed have such a huge effect on our well being? The very thing going on in our mind will some way, some how manifest a representation in our body.
Let me emphasize that it’s not about trying to be positive all of the time, or being flakily joyful. It’s just about the awareness that our body, emotions, environments etc are all connected and influencing one another. That’s all. You have the power and the influence to literally change what is physically going on in your body.
And that’s pretty kick ass power to harness. I hope you use it to your advantage.
Sending love, hugs and butt slaps…
