In what method is the mind related to the body, and vice versa?
Mainstream Western science has lengthy held the idea that mind and body are two separate, impartial entities.
Until not too long ago, the mind has been regarded merely as the “epiphenomenon” of the mind, that means that the mind is merely a results of the complicated electrical, chemical and organic actions of the mind. Without the mind, the mind doesn’t and can’t exist.
Fortunately, latest analysis on body-mind medication and in neuroscience has confirmed this idea totally incorrect. The mind isn’t merely the results of the actions of the mind. It might even be the different method round—that’s, the mind has created the mind.
I outline the mind as “the thinking faculty of the soul,” however science doesn’t imagine in the existence of the soul, as a result of it has no method of proving its existence.
Western science can now not ignore the rising variety of proof concerning the body-mind connection. As Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD at Stanford Center for Research in Disease Prevention stated, “Mind and body are inextricably linked, and their second-by-second interactions exert a profound influence upon health and illness, life and death… Emotional stress… can trigger chain reactions that affect blood chemistry, heart rate, and the activity of every cell and organ in the body—from the stomach and gastrointestinal tract to the immune system.” (From “Mind, Body Medicine,” edited by Daniel Goleman, PhD and Joel Gurin)
Because it has been conclusively confirmed by neuroscientists and researchers that each cell in our body is in fixed communication with one another by neurotransmitters and their receptors, the essential position of the mind and feelings in the trigger, development and treatment of ailments can now not be dismissed by the medical group.
Not all ailments may be traced solely to a pathogen (like micro organism), germ or microbe, allergen or carcinogen. Disease may be additionally attributable to nonphysical issues or circumstances, like feelings and detrimental thought patterns.
As Harris Dienstfrey, editor of “Advances” for the Fetzer Institute, identified in the ebook “Where the Mind Meets the Body”: “The level of health today would likely be higher if the medical community had retained a bit of skepticism toward the germ theory and was more responsive to the capacity of the mind to move the physiology of the body.”
The mind isn’t the identical as the mind. The mind is the bodily organ that presumably produces thought and directs the physiological actions of the body. The mind is a nonphysical entity which isn’t contained in the mind. It is throughout the body, it’s nonlocal. It is the seat of consciousness.
Consciousness isn’t depending on the mind. A person may be acutely aware or conscious even when he’s out of his body. Numerous instances of near-death-experiences (NDE) and astral projections (or out-of-body experiences) have confirmed this past doubt. Many occasions I’ve skilled being out of my bodily body and even noticed, no less than as soon as, my bodily body sitting in a chair whereas I hovered close to the ceiling. Yet I used to be absolutely conscious of everyone in the room, together with their ideas. That’s why I do know that consciousness isn’t depending on the mind.
Can the mind trigger the body to be in poor health? Of course it will possibly. Not solely that, it will possibly additionally do the reverse, that’s, the mind can restore an individual to well being or wholeness.
People who develop coronary heart illness are sometimes high-strung, extremely confused, perfectionist, type-A personalities. They can’t hold nonetheless and are all the time their watch. They need to end a job, behind schedule, however forward of time. These persons are often very profitable and financially secure. But they’re additionally often the ones who’ve hypertension, coronary heart assaults, strokes and ulcers.
This doesn’t imply that the easygoing, sort B particular person gained’t get in poor health. He will, too, however between the two varieties, the former is extra liable to illness than the latter.
A examine was carried out by Harvard heart specialist Dr. Herbert Benson on the results of meditation (or what he calls the Relaxation Response) on the body of a person. He discovered, amongst different issues, that meditation not solely relieves rigidity or stress. It even lowers blood strain, slows down metabolism and reduces oxygen consumption and blood lactate stage, indicative of a relaxed state. Dr. Benson mentioned these in his best-selling ebook, “The Relaxation Response.”
Each cell in our body is in communication with each different cell by neuro-transmitters and their receptors. So, whenever you speak to your body, the body listens. I as soon as cured my “trigger finger” ailment by merely speaking to it, as suggested by a spirit entity from the fifth dimension.
Dr. Candace Pert, a pioneer in mind-body medication, found the position of neuropeptides in a single’s well being and immunity. She described how the feelings “act like drugs in the brain and body and control storage of memories, i.e. the brain is not the sole storer of information, that happens in the body, too.” She printed greater than 250 scientific papers on peptides and died in 2013 at age 67. Her analysis findings paved the method for the improvement and acceptance of “psychoneuroimmunology.”
