The Prolong Stress Effects on Body, Mind & Heart

[Transcript from audio]

Hi welcome to the first day of the first chapter, on Remembering “who am I” series. Today we will be talking about stress. Now, what is stress? How do you know when your stressed?

Stress is actually a feeling of emotional or physical tension, caused by any events or even thoughts that makes us feel frustrated, angry, nervous. Stress is a body response.. body reaction to a challenge or a demand, yet it can be a very positive things because it helps us to avoid danger and it help us to meet a certain dateline. So, there is two sides of the coin when you want to look at stress. But when stress is prolong, we need to really pay attention on what is the effect .. when we are in a stressful situation or when we feel stress and a longer duration of time. So today we will be sharing about what are the prolong stress effects on our body, mind- brain and heart. So let’s look at.. now recall some of your most stressful situation. The question is what makes you stress the most?

There are different types of stress and there are emotional, there are physical type, but how do you know if you’re stressing? When we experience sleeping problems, when we experience sweating, experience loss of appetite, difficulty in concentrating, when we feel anxious, when you feel we have like tons of thoughts keep coming in and out, and constantly worrying about things, the head is going to explode, the body does not feel good. So all these are the signs of stress. There are acute stress, there are chronic stress, there are little little stressors as we experience on daily basis and there are much more severe stress that built up cause we are exposed to a situation over a long period of time.

A lot of times, we kind of ignore such chronic stress because we thought that is normal. Because everyone is stress… is experiencing stress, so it is a norm for me to experience this kind of stress. Until a certain level, when someone.. I myself have experience this, I was really in a stressful situation for probably a year, and one day, all kinds of illnesses and all kinds of small incidents came up to me and told me that I have to rest. That’s when I realised that I have accumulated tons of stress within me. That’s the effect of prolong stress ,the possible effects of stress ,when it’s long-term it’s much more difficult to manage and why we need to know the effects? Because to identify if we are experiencing all the signs so when you know, when we know, then we have a choice to either we want to stay in the same situation or you wanna make or tweak little bit changes in life.

So let’s go into the stress effect on the body, first part. Let’s talk about the body what are the stress effects on the body, when it’s prolong. So a bit of introduction about the body, we have this autonomic nervous system (ANS) which the body is designed in a way that even we face stress on daily basis but the body have to system that it allows itself to balance, it’s called homeostasis balance with enough of rest (now provided). So when we are.. the homeostasis is in balance, the body, this autonomic nervous system is adapted to the stress we are used to the stress. So the constant mode we are on is the fight and flight mode. When this mode, this button is on constantly, what we can focus is really just focusing on surviving.

Back to the ancestors time, where we live in the caves, where humans live in the caves, we were constantly protecting ourselves from danger. So when they are prey or predators are coming to hunt humans or to harm humans or any kind of natural disasters, what we do is we go [into] either fight or runaway -flight, actually there is another mode which is called the freeze mode. So, fight, flight and freeze mode. Now, when our body is so adapted, it’s so used to stress mode, [it] is constantly on and so we can’t.. we don’t switch [it] off, what will happen? We will keep on wanting to protect ourselves, protect our outer environment to make sure that we survived. So. the body is designed to survive. What the body do is, when it’s constantly focusing on outer environment, what happened to the internal side of the body? If it’s prolong, you’re constantly on alert state. The immune system will be lowered, because the focus is not on the internal to repair, the focus is not to balance, the focus is not to heal, but to constantly focus on out there. Now, so the body will started to wear down and there’s no restoring, there’s no repairing, very little, very minimal. Might find it very hard to sleep, you feel vulnerable, the body just feel weak and so the body started also to reserve more carbohydrate, means store fats. This is when the homeostasis are imbalance, what happened when we are balance right?

When we are balance, the body, and we allow ourselves to rest, when we switch off, temporarily, the fight or flight mode, we will allow the body to rest. We allow the body to repair, to heal, to protect our inner environment, which are the organs, the blood system, the muscles, the tissues, to the bones. We will shift from the disease to the ease, we will shift from the dysfunction to function, we will shift from the disregulation to regulation, and we will also shift mal-adaptive to adaptative. So, the body system is balance again. Back to its original function, yeah and now we want to move to our mind.

What are the prolonged stress effects on the mind? A bit of sharing the mind as well at the brain. When the brain, the mind is incoherent because of the stress. We talked about the fight and flight mode right? So the memories inside the brain will trigger the thoughts. When we are constantly in stressful situation, for example, when we were working.. we were hustling out there. Something will caused me alert right, when something triggered the memories and trigger the thoughts from the past, and somehow thoughts from the past arises and emotions arises as well. So, basically we keep relieving the past subconsciously, because we are used to it. For example, if I am constantly worry whether I would get criticise by my clients or whoever, and when I was working something some comments actually trigger my emotions of my past experience being criticised. I will keep the memories as it reminds me, so I will keep re-experience this subconsciously, when my mind is incoherent.

Therefore, with this, we are used to, we are conditioned to think a lot of problems continuously. Therefore, we are addicted to the thoughts, basically we are addicted to stress. There is an emotional addiction to that. And, because of that, we focus on the outer the environment, we constantly identify ourselves based on what we see. I identify myself with this body, how I look, my appearance. If I’m fat, I think I have no value in the eyes of the others, that’s my perception. So, I will identify because I am fat, I don’t have value, therefore I don’t deserve great things. And I identify with my environments, where I am living, who am I with, that’s who I am. Now, constantly focus on the outer environment and when we are incoherent, the brain is incoherent, [we are] constantly waiting for something to happen outside to make change inside of us.

For example, I will constantly look for someone to help me to create something that I desired in life or in business wise. I’m constantly looking for partnership or the investors.. to make changes of me instead of me changing myself, empowering myself to take changes. It is like we are looking to be rescued and so we are resisting the unknown, resisting the future, because it is unknown. And we are less likely to open to new possibilities.

What happens when the mind is in coherence, in coherent state? The mind will feel whole again. The mind will start paying attention on the unknown without identifying itself as just [from] what I can see, [from] what I can touch, the five senses. Its beyond that, and that you will also start to increase energy, start to focus on the inner world. PS: I’m going to talk about [we are of] 99.99999% of energy and [only] 0.00001% are matter tomorrow. It’s going to be interesting on this, it’s relatable. So that’s for the mind.

Now, let’s go to the third part is the heart. What are the prolonged stress effects on heart? When we are incoherent, when the heart is in chaotic rhythm, means imbalance basically, there are a lot of unresolved emotions within. And so, we’re imbalance inside, we draw this field of energy around the body and then we might feel separated from others, feeling like we constantly in this emergency mode. So, when we draw field from around the body, it diminishes the vital energy field around us, and again it relates to the body.

When [we are] imbalance Inside, constantly [the] energy is projected outward to protect us from external traps. Instead of focusing on the within. So, its constantly in survival mode and thus, there is less ability to create. We talked about the body as well, the dysfunction of immune system because we constantly focus on the external environment. There is a lot of energy needed to protect ourself from external traps, that’s why.. inner outer, yin and yang, inside outside, internal external – they are related. Once it’s imbalance inside, we draw energy from outside to balance the inner world.

So, that’s for incoherent heart, when the heart is in coherence state, means balance state, it will act as an amplifier. It will send energy up to [the] brain. As when it is balance, it it just amplifies all the energy from within, when it sends more energy up in the brains, [as] they’re related, the brain becomes coherent. There is the union of polarity in the heart space. That’s where the union of polarity comes from the heart. When it started to broadcast coherence signature of electromagnetic field around you because it is so much more powerful than the brain electromagnetic power. When the heart is in coherent, in balance state, so we will have more energy and we will less focus on the matter. We focus on how we create the vital energy field around us as the heart is in balance, it will send out energy to the brain, it will send out the energy to [strengthen] our electromagnetic field.

So these are all the prolong stress effects on the body, the mind, and the heart. We will move on with the understanding of quantum field. We will talk about mind hacks to shift ourselves from survival mode to creative mode. We will also sharing about the quantum you; then where we focus on the intention and elevated emotions; when we start to recondition the body, the brain, and the heart, what will happened. So these are the simple sharing that we will be going through tomorrow. So at [the] last last 9 minutes, I would love to invite you to be in silence together with me. Let’s do this. I will be playing music to ease and slow down our brainwaves. Start to breath deeper to our belly and breath it out. Take two more deep breaths, in and out.

[Guided slow down starts at 21:49 audio]

Love,
