The nearest model we have in the medical 'mainstream' I believe, is in the work around placebo and nocebos. In other words what we believe is what we think, and what we think directly affects the way we live our life and the relationships we have in it. When we start exploring our own thinking It means that we are able to make far more conscious choices. Being aware of our emotional responses is a powerful tool to learn and it can take us further away or closer too the life we seek. Often we get stuck in the middle where our conscious and our beliefs are conflicted. ( Dr Joe Dispenza will frame this as having your foot on the brake and the accelerator all at the same time). Dr Joe goes on to provide evidence of the two differing frequencies that we produce when we do this, frequencies which affect our 'whole' self including our physical body. This means to move toward something more satisfying requires a lot more conscious choice than we might think. I reckon our thoughts get a bad rap, when in fact our brain doesn't need to be our enemy, it can be our greatest tool. It's a perfectly designed polarity organ designed for free will and making choices! It's how aware and how we use those choices that are going to be relevent to our lives, and then what we do with our thoughts and feelings when we get stuck. I believe, like many others, there is something in all of us that can measure a quality of a thought, its just that sometimes we lose that connection or clarity of it. When we get caught in both the solution and the problem we are going to find our selves stuck, more irritated , angered, frustrated and feeling like we are restricted with little or no control. Feeling disempowered creates an immediate conflict, and unless addressed it's going to simply bring out the constant 'fight' or 'flight' in us. Whilst Im no 'expert' and have no scientific qualifications, I am my own expert and I encourage others to be theirs as well. We know so much more than what we have been lead to believe. Waking up your own inner shaman can be the best gift for yourself and all those around you. I have experienced and continue to experience how following and practising the modern scientists has transformed my life from one of darkness, depression and anxiety to the amazing life I have today. Im unapologetically incredibly happy which has nothing to do with my external world and everything to do with my internal world. This doesn't mean that contradictive or contrasting experiences don't happen to me, it's just I now focus on the solution rather than the problem and I can discern the two much easier now than ever before. My goal is simply to keep developing so that I can stay calm enough to keep doing this. Awareness is the gift that just keeps giving and I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody who is seeking a more peaceful life.
