Elemental Energy 4: Body Mind Perspective
Our body and our brain use these senses to navigate this dimensions physical realm as well as what we call the non-physical realms. Some of these senses give input where the information is processed consciously and sub-consciously with our brain only then telling the body what to do. Through some of the senses our bodies create memory and perspective of their own. When the body and the brain react to something, it is imbedded in the current memory.
Judy and I were just talking about this subject. She mentioned where she had just read about a study completed with a young woman who suffered chronic short-term memory loss. The study involved testing the body mind connection by having the woman meet the same people repeatedly. In the experiment, a person stuck the woman once with a pin upon shaking her hand. Even though the woman was subsequently introduced to this same person again and again with no recall of the traumatic meeting, the woman would not ever shake the person’s hand again even after much encouragement and questioning. She simply refused. She could offer no explanation except for the fact that she would not shake the person’s hand. The experiment proved that this young woman’s body memory could sense the danger from the person each and every time that person greeted her even though her conscious brain could not remember who they were.
As the above demonstrates and I have also been shown that the body’s memory is independent of the brain. The body’s perceptions are through the senses of touch and taste. These senses seem to be connected to our most primitive animal instinct, safety. We think of touch as when someone comes near and there is visible contact that is pleasant, unpleasant, safe or unsafe, etc.
Beyond this, I am shown touch extends to the unseen or to what is referred to as the other realms. When someone stares at you with intent, it is the sense of touch that acknowledges it. There seems to be discernment of the input even before the autonomic nervous system can react. Our body seems to know whether to have the hair go up on our neck or react more to the sensual.
While you are sitting reading this, try this exercise; Think of a frightening situation you could be in. Let’s say you are walking in a known “bad” part of town at night. Close your eyes and be there in your mind’s eye. What is your brain doing right now? The imagination is running “amuck,” right? Go farther now. What do you sense on your arms, back and neck? Are they sensing anything particular or are these areas feeling open and at the ready? Now take something in one hand and wave it over the other arm do not touch that arm. Wave it at 3”, 12” and 18” above that arm. (You could even have someone else do this for you.) Is your body able to sense this movement? Now do the same exercise but this time take a few moments and imagine settling in front of the TV watching a pleasant feel good movie with a friend. Close your eyes again and pass by your body the same object the same way as described above. What’s the difference in the two experiences? These subtle differences I believe are the sense of touch and the memory of the body telling us whether we are safe or not. The body cannot tell whether either of these circumstances is actually happening. The body cannot distinguish between real and or what the brain is sending it. This exercise demonstrates this phenomenon. During the above exercise, what if the sense memory had been trained to understand that if you were with another person alone in front of the TV meant you were going to be raped or killed? How would the reaction been different?
