Our bodies are a complex network of physio-chemical interactions that trigger emotional states and vice versa. When a person feels victorious testosterone is generated and boosts the body with feelings of euphoria and confidence. It comes from the hormones under the classification of androgens. When a person feels depressed and uncomfortable estrone has been generated. It comes from the class of hormones known as estrogens. Both men and women have androgens and estrogens in their systems; however, men usually have more androgens and women have more estrogens; however, this can change under consistent feelings of being stressed.
When a person feelslike they are losing or have lost something valuable to them the hormone cortisol is produced in the adrenal glands. It is considered a catabolic hormone that breaks down tissue regeneration, modulates the immune response, raises glucose levels and stores fat in the body. It is often referred to as the ‘stress’ hormone that kicks in when we are under tremendous or sudden stress. Some studies have shown that it creates estrogen dominance. At the DNA level, it suppresses testosterone production and can create feelings of depression and anxiety.
Our bodies are psycho-physical units where thoughts and emotions affect our health, our feelings of wealth, prosperity and the recognition of abundance. Our emotional moods can dominate and paint an unrealistic view of reality, regardless of what our thoughts reveal. When we listen to our bodies in deep meditation we slow down oursystems enough for our internal chemistry to seek a balance much like water seeks its own level when agitation stops. The deeper we go, the more we align our bodies with the eddys and currents of Divine order.
At our center is the Creator of the omniverse exuding Divine love if we would but make the time each and every day to experience that bliss. Nothing is more important in our lives than spending time with the Divine deep in meditation. How can anyone hear the silent whispers of the Divine when they are immersed in the constant and incessant chaos of the external world of the perceived dualistic reality?
Eliminate the noise and listen for the still small voice of the Divine guiding and directing you to peace, understanding, joy and the expression of Divine love. Balance out your bodily chemistry and come out from under the veil of being subject to your emotional responses and chemical states.
The Divine is in command but you must drink from the well to experience the beauty. Make the time for your Divine relationship and the healing of your body. When the spirit is accessed, the body is healed and the mind is free to explore more horizons. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
