What we perceive to be the world around us is filtered through our past experiences and the memories we have of them.
The lens created by what we’ve lived so far causes us to less than clear images of our lives. The scars of our past, if left buried and unhealed create a thick covering on this lens. As a result, what we see is not what really is.
The late Candace Pert, Ph.D., who revolutionized the world of science with her discovery of the molecules of emotion, writes in her book entitled “Everything You Need To Know To Feel Go(o)d”:
“… your experience of so-called reality is filtered through your memories, giving your experience a spin, adding meaning, and even making part of each situation go or stay unconscious, as in the case of a core emotional trauma, if the event is too painful to remember.
We’re constantly resonating with what we already know to be true. Everything that you feel is filtered along a gradient of past experiences and memory that’s stored in your receptors – there isn’t any absolute or external reality! What you experience as reality is your story of what happened.”
I believe that making our emotional well-being a priority and looking inside without fear is the key to healing the physical body.
The body, the mind and the emotions are so closely knit together that we cannot have a healthy body in the presence of deep emotional and mental turmoil.
Read Candace Pert’s book if you want the hard-core, irrefutable, scientific proof.
