“Emotional expression, touch expression and verbal expression are all connected neurologically, forming the psychobiology of our intelligence, our communication and our adaptability. Touch and emotional expression share the same brain function, just as fine motor movements of the fingers and thumb share the same neural real estate in the motor cortex with the fine motor movements of the mouth that produce speech” Greenfield, Susan. (1997). The Human Brain: A Guided Tour.
So what does that mean? It means your body is more than a vehicle to move you place to place, it is full of wisdom and connections that allow for adaptability and resilience.
· Your Body is Smart: “The Electromagnetic current of the heart is 60 times higher in amplitude than the field of the brain. It also emits an energy field 5,000 times stronger than the brain’s, one that can be measured more than 10 feet from the body.” –Dr. Mimi Guarneri, Cardiologist and author of The Heart Speaks.
· Your Body is the expert on you: “Each heart beat sends complex signals capable of reaching higher brain centers, ultimately affecting our reasoning and choices, our emotions and perceptions. Apparently, the heart has not only its own language, but its own mind.” –Dr. J Andrew Armour explaining his concept of a functioning “heart brain”.
· There is a universe inside you waiting to be discovered: “There is more to you than you realize. The body contains the knowledge and resources you need. What would happen if you explored your body with wonder and curiosity instead of judgment? Oh, the treasures and wisdom you’d find!”
