It is my opinion that all enlightened people, including spiritual leaders and those that practice in the medical and psychology professions will agree that most, if not all personality adaptations, emotional conflicts and diseases originated from the psyche. We are truly victims of our perceptions of our environment which ultimately regulates our health. Studies concluded that our perceptions of the emotional conflicts and traumas in our lives trigger the onset of disease.
The fact is that neurotransmitters and their receptors are in both the brain and the body, and through the research and work done by Deepak Chopra, M.D. we now know that the mind is in the body as well as the brain.
We are well aware of the fact that psychological values are formed and attached to those occurrences in our development. These values including significant emotional events, take refuge and are anchored in the body. If not dealt with, they take their toll.
In his book The Biology of Belief by Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D., he points to the discovery that all the cells of our body are affected by our thoughts. In truth he says, cells receive a "perception" of the environment as interpreted by the educated brain. The research further shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; but instead, DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer through his studies reached the conclusion that the disease process is not due to “errors of nature” but rather Significant Biological Programs of Nature stemming from sudden and dramatic events. The brain controls all processes in the body. He further found that an emotional trauma or "conflict shock" (DHS as he termed it) leaves a visible mark in precisely the same area of the brain that controls the disease process. A chart, The Scientific Chart of Germanic New Medicine® shows, at a glance, the correlation between the psyche, the sections of the brain and the various organs affected.
In Transcending The Levels Of Consciousness, David R. Hawkins, MD., Ph.D., informed us that our brains’ prevalent patterns of processing information depends on underlining, unseen spiritual energy fields. Critical profound changes occur in our brain’s physiology and patterns of processing information at specific levels of consciousness.
At lower levels of consciousness where emotions such as humiliation, blame, despair, regret, anxiety, craving and hate, control our thinking, we learn that emotional response occurs before intelligence and cognition have a change to modify the response.
At higher levels of consciousness where emotions such as affirmations, trust, optimism, forgiveness, understanding, reverence, serenity, bliss and enlightenment, control our thinking we learn that intelligence and cognition modify the response.
Spiritual endeavour and intention change the brain function even further and speed up the input via our senses even more rapidly through the prefrontal region of the etheric brain.
It is apparent that the Lower Mind focuses on the linear specifics of a situation and sees them in terms of self-interest. In contrast, Higher Mind includes the overall context and is thereby aware of the abstract non-linear meaning, including spiritual significance.
In Quantum physics we learn that the observer affects the observed. Brian Greene, Ph.D. in The Fabric of the Cosmos writes “In this view, when we measure the electron’s position we are not measuring an objective, pre-existing feature of reality. Rather, the act of measurement is deeply enmeshed in creating the very reality it is measuring.”
Dr. Joe Dispenza, Ph.D. said in his remarks on the question of how much does the observer affect the observed and why aren’t we changing bigger things and have greater power: “Because we have lost the power of observation” he continues, “The subatomic world responds to our observation but the average person loses their attention span every 6 – 10 seconds … so how can the very large respond to something who doesn’t have the ability to even focus and concentrate? Maybe we are just poor observers. Maybe we haven’t mastered the skill of observation and maybe it is a skill …”
