Stress gets the award for the highest ranking disorder in causing death. Heart disease, cancers of all varieties, skin diseases, liver and kidney disease; even suicide and murder are inspired by..you got it, stress.
Close your eyes, and imagine your own body for a moment. And feel all of that emotional pain of fear, worry, guilt, shame, anger, resentment again. Just for a minute. Where do you feel this in your body? Is it in your chest? Your heart and lungs could be at risk for dis-ease. Does something stir up in your tummy area? Your intestines, bowel, stomach, liver and kidneys are being ravaged by the stress you carry. Maybe you feel the ANX in your abdomen and you often experience health issues in that area. Or, if you remember your emotional pain as being felt in the head (usually the enemy beasts of anger and resentment) you may have ache, or even some difficulty with the physical brain.
Take a moment to focus really hard on what your emotional upset is doing to that part of your body. Think of it as black. Prickly. Heavy. Poisonous. and just watch it (in your mind’s eye) swirl around and attack your insides.
If that doesn’t inspire you to do something about the weights you carry around with you then nothing will. Stress comes from overwhelming feelings of worry, fear, guilt, shame, anger, resentment. All of these emotions are useless to our psyche, but we tend to fall back to them every time a little incident happens in our lives. Sometimes we let those energy suckers hang around so long within us, we begin to feel the disease of the stress on a physical level. Tense muscles come from stress, so walking around like a pinched up peg isn’t going to be good for the bones, joints, and muscles either. Sometimes new unsubstantiated diagnoses come then, followed by, you guessed it, more drugs.
Contrary to what the commercials tell us, we do have control over our own emotions. Sometimes we don’t think we do, but we really do have all of the control we need to manage ourselves. When we think we have no control we are at risk of believing the filthy rich pharmaceutical companies who would like you to believe that Serotonin, a chemical imbalance issue, is the culprit to your feelings and drugs are needed. Trillions of dollars and millions of lost lives later, we see that we still don’t have a blood test to verify what we have been fed on that matter. No matter who I talk to, the ones prescribed and taking psychiatric drugs, all firmly believe that they are mentally sick forever, and the drugs will be needed forever. Frequent dosage increases are needed as the drug adjusts itself to the brain.
What if the DRUG WITHDRAWAL is making you feel unstable?
People just don’t see that they feel ‘mental’ when they try to stop taking the drugs, because the drug got itself addicted to your brain almost immediately (just like heroin) and trying to stop makes the brain feel very unstable. So, people believe they really do have a physical issue and no control over making their lives better and carry on with their drug solution.
If only we could end stress the drug free way. If we would teach young and old people coping skills to feel more peace of mind, we would be doing humanity a huge service. What is going on now is not only creating early deaths, it is making us mindless mental pygmies; slaves to the anti-depressant and other psychiatric medication to overcome feelings.
Dare to look at what your stress is doing to your body. Look close and ask yourself if you really need to live like that, or if maybe you do have more inside power than you ever gave yourself credit for. I challenge you that you do have a superhero inside of YOU just waiting to be unleashed from all of the heaviness you allow to stay around. Stop it. Get up off the couch and go get yourself some coping skills. There are free support groups everywhere. Other than actual brain damage, there is no excuse for anyone to live in pain, alone…and drugged!
It is our secrets, our shames, our stuffing of things that need to be out in the open that will lead to stress and early death. Go find out why you do that, and your new lovely life will begin!
God bless you everyone. I wish you all love, peace of mind and extreme happiness!
