One of my delights is to study systems and see how to create quicker ways through them. I love philosophy, science, spirituality and health of the body. I am intrigued by all types and the less known modalities through my curiosity. It is a big story to me. As I learned from Spiritual Masters about my body health. I enjoy seeing how what I learned from them that seem basic and often absurd are now being considered revolutionary medicine. A student I am.
As these magical and scientific systems report ways to health, the parasympathetic nervous system seems the winner in all ways. This is our nervous system of repair, renew, rejuvenate, tend and befriend or rest and digest. We are all running around in the sympathetic nervous system of fight or flight as though the world is burning down. That is the only time we need this system and it is a short term juicing system. Our problem is that we are using this all the time and burning out our bodies.
It will create disease on all levels for we are not designed to run this way. We unbalance all our systems. When in this fight or flight, all other jobs our body does, digestion, healing repairing , are put on hold. So many of our bodily processes are not occurring as designed. This backs up the renewal, repair, the feeding, the clearing, assimilation, etc. Of course, you could see how illness would eventually come forward! The body is like a car that hasn't any oil, no lubrication of sorts. There is no rest, joy chemicals and the body can not operate optimally.
The parasympathetic nervous system is the main system we should be in, especially woman. Our feel good chemicals are rolling through our body, creating high moods, peaceful minds and relaxed bodies. This is also when the body detoxes, heals wounds, repairs its organs, all this occurs in this magic nervous system. In a society where we are in sympathetic nervous system rat wheel, we can easily find greater health by just creating ways to shut down that rat wheel some of the time and be in greater relaxed states.
Therefore, in the end, pleasure, joy, fun, relaxation, are the elixirs. We can do these in any way we want but know this is the way to recenter and reset our body. Calm down, slow down, find pleasure in nature and the things around you. These are the healers. Participating in things we like, enjoy, that fuel us and support us to laugh and be joyful. Yes, the world is crazy but we are the only ones who are allowing this fight and flight run us. Yes, the world trains us for that yet all the science is clear.
If we want health, we need to find joy more times throughout our day. Quick shifts, fully body awareness and listening, taking time to enjoy and do things you love in life. The rush of adrenaline is killing us. Our pineal gland gets calcified reveling in cortisol. We need the oxytocin of pleasure, seratonin and all the other good chemicals. It is basic. It is clear. It is proven. It is up to you.
I know you have a million reasons on why you can't enjoy life or slow down. How this won't work. That is an ok answer if you want to find out how you can burn out your body. There is a million ways you could break down from this adrenal stress and go on drugs to try to support your thyroid, heart, etc. The choice seems simple and clear Great health comes from you slowing down, finding easy pleasure, creating ways to have joy and relaxing into all things!
