Feelings and body-brain responses are not separate experiences

Have you ever considered that feelings and physical movement affect one another and that they are married together?  Have you ever considered that a person’s history of feelings may be creating their current behavior?

Imagine for a moment the feelings of fear.  How does fear affect  body posture and experience?  Fear is a tool  that is designed as a  warning system to get out of danger.   Some of the reactions of fear are:

  • Tensed muscles for  strength and quick action
  • Focused eyes with short-range view 
  • Increased heart rate
  • Quick breathing or stopped all together
  • Mind becomes focused with danger

Imagine the effects if the reactions listed above become chronic and long-term.  What would happen in the body?   In some case experiences, I have noticed that when  the fear responses have been relaxed physically, mentally and emotionally this has resulted in  discovery of sensing physical sensation responses that  there was not any aware of in the height of their fear.  In order to keep up the fear posture many of their sensory awareness abilities had to be shut down!  What effect would this have on their  perspective?  The  incoming information would be perceived through their fear and limited reflexes therefore how it would affect  the thought process and resulting reactions?

During our  learning and growth years, are we consciously learning how to engage and disengage our fear reactions physically, mentally and emotionally?  Is a part of  our educational learning from parents and education system techniques to know if our fear emotion is engaged and how to disengage it?  Are we learning that our thinking is the last in the process and a reaction to all the factors of movement posture, sensory awareness, perception, brain process and cultural influences?

Are we learning that the fear posture we keep up and that is not processed may become future sources of unconscious  bullying and/or being bullied? That this becomes our relationship with ourselves and others in our networks?
