YOUR EMOTIONAL SELF: Your Key to a Better
Your emotional self operates
at the very core of your life, affecting everything you
think and do!
This is not just some interesting idea; it is borne out by
scientific research that demonstrates that your emotional brain -
your limbic system - operates like a central clearing house.
Everything - your thoughts, beliefs, ideas, plans, fantasies etc.
run through it where they are filtered and 'color' your perceptions
and therefore the reality you perceive, respond to and
participate in creating.
Knowing this, it's easier to see how your emotional life
your feelings about yourself, your relationships, your
parenting of yourself and your children and grandchildren, your
mental health, your ability to understand your own needs and
motivations and those of others as well.
Your emotional life profoundly affects your physical health as
well. The pathways and mechanisms through which this happens were
identified by Candace Pert, PH.D., who demonstrated that each
thought you think has a parallel physical molecule that runs
through your body. This "thought molecule" instructs your
physiology in how to proceed. In other words, your thoughts
ceaselessly produce physical changes!
A major boost was given to this astounding fact by Bruce Lipton,
Ph.D., who demonstrated that both your genes and your DNA not only
can be - but are -manipulated by your beliefs. In other words, your
beliefs are what control your biology whether or not your beliefs
How is this possible? Because every single one of the 50 to 70
trillion cells in your body is always busy adapting to our
environment - and when you change your emotional environment you
change the environmental signals that elicit the behavior of your
cells. In this way your emotional self is literally in charge of
This flies in the face of the current Western medical paradigm
that sees the existence of a physical symptom as a disease -
a stimulus for a bodily war that requires application of external
weapons, usually in the form of prescription drugs.
Shifting your mind-set to take the new, paradigm-shattering
research into account, instead of attacking diseases or
dysfunctions from the outside, you'd work from the inside
partnering with your emotional self to shift your internal
environment in the direction of better health and functioning.
Unfortunately few of us are well enough acquainted with our
emotional selves to do this. After all, we've been conditioned from
the beginning of our lives to not only accept, but actually demand
these external weapons.

YOUR HEALTH and FITNESS PLAN:
Does It Contain This Essential Ingredient So
Important To Your Success?
Health and fitness plans have several
components. Include them all and you're in the best
possible position to succeed. Forget one of them, and you

stretching? Resistance training? Or even rest? No, no, no, no
