A New Science
There’s a new science being talked a lot about these days, and it’s the Science of Neuroplasticity. This is the study of the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience or following injury: neuroplasticity offers real hope to everyone from stroke victims to dyslexics.
In simple terms, this is the study of how your body, mind and Spirit communicate. But what is it communicating? It’s communicating the information it receives from your outside world, interprets it into a language of usability for your many parts and then transports it to all of your systems so that they can integrate the information and start to respond accordingly.
An example of this would be if you were accidently touching a hot grill, that information is received, quickly interpreted as dangerous, transmitted to all of your parts to respond and of course to have you respond by pulling your hand away.
But is also sending the information that your hand has been burned and needs instant attention to the systems that need to jump into action for repair, regeneration, healing and an immune response. Your mind needs to be soothed as well, so your heart leaps into action and tells you that everything is OK. It’s got your back and no need to beat yourself up over it. You are still loved and cherished and nothing has changed about your worthiness.
As you know however, that message sometimes gets lost among the fear that you are going to be permanently maimed or abandoned which must mean that you are unworthy of love and so your heart continues to feed its messages of loving you 24/7. Your choice of course, is which voice to listen to.
IMMUNE SYSTEM AND THE HEART
Your immune system is a system connected to your heart. Did you know that? Yes, it is part of the communication system of the heart that is constantly circulating with the message that all is well…you are well..you’re loved and cherished and all of your systems are working together to keep you in balance to the best of their ability.
It also responds in times of crisis as above and gives added support when needed. It is a major line of defense for your well- being and state of health.
Because you are a Being of body/mind and Spirit integration, part of your job is to make certain that you are feeding all of those parts what they need in order to support you and your immune system the best. Healthy food and water is a must for the body..the fresher, the better and feeds the cells physically.
However, what is often forgotten is how your mind and Spirit need feeding as well.
Nourish the Mind and Spirit
Some of the best ways to do that are through music, going out in nature, reading non-violent, life enhancing material and taking in happy, positive, inspiring words to stimulate your sense of well-being and happiness and connection to a greater force than just you.
It helps you feel supported at all times and realize there is an energy field that will sustain you as well as feeding your need to expand and grow.
Inspirational Quotes are just perfect for this and my invitation is for you is to read and recite at least one reaffirming, inspirational quote every day. Change them up from time to time so you are encouraging and challenging your immune system to grow out of its comfort zone and become stronger!
