In mind/body medicine, the emotional status of an individual is viewed as important, if not more important than their physical status.
We know that “how” someone is feeling has everything to do with their physical prognosis, their energy for healing, their pain level, and long term survival. In mind/body medicine, emotions are viewed as revealing the state of consciousness of a person.
Disturbances in the bioenergy field reflect disturbances in one’s consciousness. These disturbances precede the development of illness.
Changes in consciousness shift the bioenergy field, which alters the course of disease. Spontaneous remission is related to the changes in the vibrational frequency of the bioenergy field that occur when healthy shifts occur in the strength, coherency, and flow of our emotions.
The growing field of quantum medicine enables us to look at the human body as an electrical/electromagnetic system which is charged and which charges the larger quantum field.
Consciousness is the organized carrier of information and as each person has their own “personality templates” each person has their own unique “bioenergy frequency pattern.”
Consciousness is the agency of change for emotions, which carry charge — the agency of change within matter. The more charge that a unit of matter possesses, the more it can change.
The significance of healthy emotional change is profound in the vitality of our healing properties. Everything becomes more sluggish and toxins aren’t excreted as efficiently. Waste products are not eliminated as well in the body and weaken cellular health.
The opposite effect is also true. Whatever helps you become more excited about life gets translated at the cellular level. When you’re motivated, it’s as if your whole body has been turned on, and the cells become more alive.
Role of Emotions and Stress
Hopelessness is the emotional state that most often precedes the development of cancer. We experience hopelessness when we do not get our emotional and psychological needs met over a long period of time.
Because deprivation is a painful experience, we learn to protect ourselves by repressing and denying the pain, anger, and fear that are the real emotions associated with deprivation.
We begin to give up unconsciously about ever getting what we really want. Eventually, we may completely lose awareness of our deep-rooted sense of hopelessness.
Shifting from hopelessness to hope is an attitudinal, behavioral, and emotional process. Internalizing the attitude that “I’m entitled to pleasure,” and “I can get what I want in life,” reinforces this attitude so that my experience of beginning to get my needs met becomes real.
Expressing more emotional pleasure produces a healthy physiological response.
Excitement and hopelessness both affect our physiology. Consistent hopelessness, despair, or chronic distress impacts the central nervous system, which is connected to the other systems of the body.
These systems, in turn, influence cell division. Normal cell division is occurring constantly.
But when you have long-term depression of hopelessness, it affects the hormonal, immune, lymph, and drainage systems of the body and creates imbalances in the system.
