Book Introduction Snippet:
Messages from the Body Introduction By Michael J. Lincoln, Ph.D. Bodily functioning is a continuous adaptation process to our external and internal environments that is operated by the brain, which in turn reflects the contents of the mind, the emotions, and the soul.
The key factor in the maintenance of bodily health is the immune system, which is controlled by the brain via neural connections, chemical reactions, neurotransmitters, lymphocytes, neurohormones, endorphins, and the like.
Through these linkages, what is going on in our consciousness is continuously affecting our body — and vice versa. In many ways, the body and the mind imitate and imprint each other. Ultimately, of course, consciousness underlies and is the final determinant of everything, and the body reflects this vividly. It should be noted in this regard that “consciousness” will be used here to refer to both aware and unaware processes and phenomena, as well as what is happening in our brains and in our souls.
What is in our consciousness is determined by our life experiences and by the nature and history of our soul. We design our destiny, and then we encounter the interaction between ourselves and the world around us. And we react to what happens.
For instance, one way in which illnesses and such can happen is when the individual’s life goals are not being met. The individual then feels so frustrated that bodily functioning goes awry. Their consciousness then becomes permeated with this process.
The resultant in such a situation is that the particular interpretations and interventions that the individual exhibits about this issue are reflective of the agitated state of their consciousness.
That in turn, shows up in the form of the disorder that develops. The illness, ailment or damaged condition then reflects the goal-thwarting impacts from our environment, and/or it reflects the effects of our efforts to try to get by without dealing with our goal(s).
