“It is now a scientifically established fact that your psychology and physiology (mind and body) are inextricably linked. A sharp, middle-school aged child can describe for you the way our thoughts reflect in our bodies through nervous, chemical, and mechanical energy and the subsequent changes these energies cause. The hormones released when you are in a state of stress, anxiety, anger, grief, worry, and other negative emotional states, make you feel bad – not figuratively, but quite literally.
When you are nervous, you may not have real “butterflies in your stomach,” but your stomach really is quivering as a result of the stress hormones it is experiencing. When the thoughts are different, the electricity and chemicals are different, and the feelings, or emotions, are different. Frustration may make your neck sore; while anger may give you a sharp pain in the area of your gall bladder and fear may make your knees or bladder weak. Every thought has some emotional response; some thoughts and emotions are subtle and calm while others can be intense and painful.”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
