Beliefs Create Reality
The Molecules of Emotion
Much research has been done on the molecules of emotion by scientists such as Dr. Candace Pert and Dr. Joseph Dispensa. Discussing neurology within the brain, they explain how a Neural Net is a building up of concepts from experience and repetition. If an experience is repeated often enough, it forms a thought form, a concept, around which a neural net will form. In this way our beliefs create reality.
Nerves that wire together, fire together.
If for example our mindset becomes habitually centered around illness, stress or fear, the neural nets within the brain form and then become “hard-wired” to accommodate these beliefs. These beliefs then become our reality and we never question them.
Hypothalamus and Pituitary Glands
The hypothalamus and the pituitary then secrete chemicals, hormones and neuro-peptides that underpin these very beliefs. How do they do this? They do this by creating chemicals that dock onto our cells and change them to become more responsive to the prevailing emotion and less receptive to benevolent nutrients. For example, if I habitually feel fearful, angry or self-pitying, my brain will respond to these emotions by secreting chemicals or neuro-peptides that are fearful, sick, or angry.
These chemicals then cascade down through my body, docking onto the cells and causing them to produce sister and daughter cells. These will be even more responsive to these fearful, negative states and less able to absorb benevolent nutrients. So how do we change this? See tomorrow’s blog Beliefs Create Reality part 2.
