In my last post, I wrote about the discovery I made on how to get out of a chair easier by ‘slamming down my hands.’ I recently made an even more important discovery.
For over a year now I have been contending with intense symptoms created by fear. [I can tell when I’m in a state of fear by my raspy voice and the noose-like feeling around my throat. It’s weird, but it’s real!] Then a couple of months ago, after learning about John Pepper and how he had used exercise [particularly walking] to neutralize the symptoms he was experiencing, I started exercising more [martial arts exercises, speed exercises, knee raises, stretching and so on] and less qigong. Not long afterwards, I realized that when I was doing these exercises my voice improved and the noose-like feeling went away. I also noticed that I could walk normally and move faster. There was less tension in my arms and I could perform tasks easier. When I thought about it, I also realized that the same was true during my morning walks.
I also figured out that when I yelled doing these exercises, the affect was even more profound. And the louder I yelled, the better!
Why is this happening? I’m guessing, that when I am exercising my mind is focused on the activity and therefore not in the adrenaline-cortisol producing fight or flight state, so the symptoms I experience diminish. It’s also quite possible that because I’m feeling more joyful my brain cells are producing dopamine and serotonin, the feel good neurotransmitters.
So it stands to reason if doing these exercises has this affect on me, the more often I do them, the longer my body will be out of the fight or flight mode and therefore, the sooner it will recover. In effect, what I’m doing, is creating an alternative to the habitual state of fear I have been in so that healing can take place. It is similar to the brain repatterning technique described by Norman Doidge in chapter one of The Brain’s Way Of Healing.
Of course I can’t be doing intense exercises all day [it would wear me out], so they have to be short and spread out. But this is okay. Coupled with my healing prayer [see below] it seems to be working because I have been feeling better!
Have an awesomely active day!
