Going on the principle that our mind and body are one, we know that any thoughts we have effects our body by influencing our central nervous system (CNS) and endocrine system. As discussed in a previous blog What are Chakras? we find research on how our Chakra's are directly linked to our endocrine system. So as we go through life and are faced with situations that may cause us either direct or indirect trauma, the emotions attached to these events will have a huge effect on the functioning of our energetic system. But how?
When faced with perceived danger, our endocrine system releases neurotransmitters that caused our CNS put us into the "Fight or Flight" response. As children this response would cause us to shake and we were able to release any excess energy build-up but as adults we stop the natural shaking our bodies. We hold on because we are told to "pull ourselves together" as it's seen as being weak to show that one is effected by events.
Regardless of the severity of an event, it is our perception of the event that can cause trauma in our lives. The feelings and emotions experienced, and memories created, affects our thoughts and beliefs.
These feelings and memories, if not released through tremoring or shaking, are held in the cells and muscles of our body. This natural shaking is our body's way of letting go of traumatic events so after years of not doing so, and not processing the emotions attached to the traumatic events, cause blockages in our energetic system.
