Also controlled by the autonomic nervous system are our sense of balance, stress responses, the sleep-wake cycle, and other circadian rhythms. Consequently, the symptoms of a disturbance to any of the body processes controlled by the autonomic nervous system can be wide-ranging and each of us will react in our own way. Metabolic processes cannot function properly in a body that is under continual stress. Persistent stress restricts blood flow to all the organs and tissues and impedes the normal working of the internal organs. The liver, stomach, intestines, pancreas, and kidneys are unable to function optimally, thus creating increased acidic metabolic waste products that cannot be eliminated effectively and are instead deposited in connective tissues. Over time this leads to acidosis, an excess of acid in the body. Acidosis leads, for example, to headaches, joint and nerve pain, tiredness and a lack of energy, and muscle tension. It also encourages chronic inflammatory conditions. Stress Adversely Affects the Proper Functioning of the Immune System When the body is subjected to stress, the immune system's ability to protect it from disease and infection is reduced. You could also read the comments sections or Twitter replies of just about any tweet or other social media thread. Especially threads about politics. Or if you're like me, you can simply look in the mirror. I like to think I'm a smart guy, but the truth is, like a child who acts out because negative attention is better than no attention, I act foolish sometimes. So much in the world around us conspires against our wonder in an attempt to crush it, replacing our curiosity with complacency. Those who fight to crush our wonder prefer we stay in line, not ask questions, and settle for the status quo. If they succeed at that goal, we won't cause a ruckus or be part of the disruption that awakens others from their slumber. As we leave a state of wonder, we pivot to a place of worry. If wisdom begins in wonder, then worry gives birth to foolishness. Some of the biggest regrets of my life arose from decisions I made when I was cynical or scared.

I had a period of eight months where I couldn't pay rent on time, but somehow, always a few days late, I'd have a check in hand for the landlord. That was stressful. There were times where I felt like the weight of the world was caving in on me. Maybe it was youthful ignorance, but I just figured that everything would work out so I kept working, paying rent late, and eating the cheapest, shittiest food I could get my hands on. Stress can bust pipes or make diamonds, and we get to choose which way it affects us and our lives. Few are aware of this choice. We see stress as something happening to us, something we have no part in creating, but it's completely mental. And let's not gloss over the fact that there's good stress. We need stress to improve. We put our muscles under stress so that they grow, and we do the same when we want to build a business or improve at something. The continual spinning, vibrating, and charged activity is creating communication between different pieces of energy. Your feelings are made of elements like carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen bound together. Elements are also called atoms, and atoms (including the atoms of your feelings) are powered by spinning, rotating, vibrating subatomic parts. In this illustration of an atom, which is an element, you can see that the center, called the nucleus, is loaded with tiny subatomic particles of energy such as protons, neutrons, gluons, and quarks. And spinning around the nucleus are electrons. The spinning electrons are particularly important because occasionally they fly off and join another element, forming a new connection. Energy Connects through Making and Breaking Bonds The primary way we people communicate with one another is through the bonds of relationship that we make or break. Energy particles communicate the same way, through the making and breaking of bonds. You can easily understand that as you go through your day you are increasing or decreasing the bonds you have with other people and that those bonds are communicating.

However, people normally tend to misuse the grace period and devoid other people from using the public space. Interaction: when you are engaging in a group activity, this territory refers to the space used by the other participants. For instance, when you are interacting with a group on the footpath, other people will not disturb the process and walk around your group instead of trespassing. Angles made by the body When you strike a conversation with another person, have you observed how the other person's body makes different angles from one side to another as well as from one direction of the face to the other one? When you look at the other person's face directly while talking, it represents intimacy or confrontation. If you are an audience member and all the members look in the same direction it represents interest and attention to what is being said. When you disagree with a point mentioned by the speaker you shake your head from one side to another in order to express disagreement. Public speaking requires good control on the body movements. Speech is similar to dance movements. Yet there is obviously also great uncertainty at this outer level of signification. I am not entirely sure what you mean when you say your head is splitting, because I feel I do not know you well enough to make full sense of your experience. Are you generally stoical, hysterical, hypochondriacal, manipulative? Understanding who you are influences how I interpret your complaints. The relationship we have will inform how I respond to your complaint of headache. That relationship includes a history of how I have responded to you in the past (and you to me), along with our mutual understanding of the current situation; My interpretation of your communication of distress is organized by the pattern of our daily interactions in times of sickness. Indeed, the language of your complaints has become a part of the language of our relationship. Hence, even the superficial significance of symptoms qua symptoms is embedded in the meanings and relationships that organize our day-to-day world, including how in interaction we re-create our selves. This makes of even superficial symptoms a rich metaphoric system available for many kinds of communication.

Our world, and who we are, is energy. It is consciousness itself. Some of it is denser (like our physical body) and some of it is not dense at all (like our spiritual nature), but it is all energy. I began to understand that our energy creates us and is on a continuum, with our physical bodies and lives simply being the most dense, or noticeable. Consciousness creates and forms everything that we think, do, and are, including our physical body. It creates us, and it creates the physical world, and if we change our energy, we change our world. Although this thought of how we are made of energy had crossed my mind previously, I didn't realize the impact of how even seemingly existential or spiritual patterns could create imbalances in the physical form until I began delving more deeply into my studies. The more flow we have in our bodies, the more flow and ease there is in our daily lives. Stuck and painful areas of the body often reflect stuck and painful beliefs. These realizations have followed me since those days, and I have discovered how we can feel the ways in which we are stuck, emotional, or out of balance in our lives in our physical form. Despite the Hollywood blitz associated with this disorder, however, diagnosis appears to have begun much earlier, in the late 1800s with Pierre Janet, a French psychiatrist, and William James, a student of both philosophy and psychology. Then, in 1906, Morton Prince introduced the term co-consciousness to explain what takes place as a client becomes aware of the dissociative process and how it operates in her life. O'Regan further described dissociation as an unconscious defense mechanism in which a group of mental activities split off from the main stream of consciousness and function as a separate unit. The purpose of dissociation is to take memory or emotion that is directly associated with a trauma and to encapsulate, or separate, it from the conscious self. Why, though, does this topic continue to garner such attention within mental health circles? Training, of course, has a huge effect on all mental health professionals. If a therapist is trained to believe that DID does not exist, she is much more likely to interpret the condition as something a client is creating to manipulate the people around her or to simply misdiagnose it. Other professionals refuse to become a part of some of the extremism that was associated with the disorder in the past. DID was once considered to be very rare and bizarre. Many people, including mental health professionals, were fearful of it.

The pain of grief is one thing. Our thoughts then add to the suffering. Out of her pain she may feel like she will never love again. But if she was open to some other ways, some suggestions, she could delve into the underlying beliefs about her statement. Some other thoughts could be: I have experienced a powerful love in my life. This love I feel for my husband is clearly I am reminded of my love for him, I added, For people who want to go deeper quicker or have moved further in time away from the death, they might say: I am open to loving again. If the stress continues unabated, for example as a result of persistent electromagnetic pollution, the outcome for the immune response can be highly detrimental. Chronic stress causes a reduction in the production of white blood cells (immune system cells that attack bacteria and viruses to fight off infection) and affects or suppresses the secretion of some hormones (chemical substances that control or regulate functions in the body such as digestion, growth, mood). This increases the likelihood of illness or indeed infections, which may heal more slowly or potentially become chronic themselves. The Psychological Effects of Stress The fact that stress makes us nervous and irritable is well known. However, the latest research has also proven a connection between stress and depression. In the field of building biology, it has been known for some time that electromagnetic stress may trigger depression, especially stress due to high frequency radiation (cell phones, radar, wifi, cordless telephones). It is also known that persistent stress, such as that caused by electromagnetic pollution, can have an influence on the body's production of hormones. The hormones serotonin and dopamine play particularly important roles in enhancing and stabilizing mood. When they are no longer produced in sufficient quantities, the result can be the triggering of depression.
