Every second, of every day, you are speaking, thinking and acting out of
fear or love.
When you are in a state of love, your body responds by releasing hormones like oxytocin and serotonin. This creates a state of calm, and also maintains a platform for maintenance of your body’s structure.
However, if you are in a fear state, your body releases different hormones, which literally changes the fate of the cells and the body. The stress hormone, cortisol, basically shuts down growth and puts you in a protection mode.
Another way to say this is when in a state of love, your cells are open and receptive to growth, but when you are in fear your cells close for protection. Open cells receive nutrition and light; closed cells have a harder time getting their needs met, and therefore are a perfect set up for disease.
Your mind is the chemist, and your state of mind is what releases the chemistry.
The great news is you have a chance every day… every morning… every second…. to start again, and choose to put your focus on loving thoughts. You are so very powerful and incredible! Move upwards towards love every day, and your shift will create a chain reaction of goodness; both internally and externally.
