Emotions, Thoughts and Hormones

Emotions are your inner guidance system. Your thoughts and emotions affect every hormone and cell. The most powerful tool to make change is: YOUR THOUGHTS.  Although natural foods, supplements, herbs, acupuncture and body work are powerful tools for building and protecting your health, it is your attitude, your emotions and your daily thought patterns that can have the most profound effect on your health.

In eastern medicine philosophy, we believe that energy blocks start in the energy field surrounding your body at the beginning of an illness and can manifest into symptomatic problems if we keep the same belief patterns. Imbalances between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, combined with the changing hormonal state as we age, e.g. menopause, can increase our body’s susceptibility to symptoms. The common denominator is hormones, primarily adrenaline and cortisol. High stress constantly weakens the adrenal gland and leads to a weaker immune system. It can lead to imbalances in fatty acid metabolism which causes weight gain, or muscle breakdown. Chronically stressed people tend toward imbalance in hormones. For example, in menopausal women, these imbalances appear in estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels.

How Attitudes and Beliefs Affect the Chakras and Auras:

Beliefs and attitudes also affect our chakras and auras. The body is comprised of energy fields (auras) and centers (chakras) that are associated with our nerves, energy and glands where these hormones are produced.  Thoughts and feelings impact our health by first manifesting in our energy field and chakras. When this energy is blocked, our nervous and endocrine systems become imbalanced.  Releasing blocks helps to alleviate symptoms and promotes well being and equilibrium in the whole body. Body work therapies like Chakra Balancing, Acupuncture, Reiki, Reflexology, Emotional Holographic Release, help to release these emotions and energy blocks, thereby lessening physical and emotional symptoms.

Healing Tip to Let Go of Negative Emotions:


We can start the healing process by showing compassion to ourselves and loving ourselves for having these emotions. The goal and the journey for each of us is to try letting go of destructive emotions such as shame, anger, and blame. You can do this by using your breath. Get in a comfortable position, close your eyes if possible. As you breathe in, visualize or hold the intention of drinking in love energy into your heart.  See the energy as pink or clear white filling up your heart chakra. As you exhale, visualize any negative feelings like a grey cloud floating up out of your body.  Try this at least 5 times until you feel “lighter” and feel less tension in your body.
