1. We perceive through experience.
2. Experience gives rise to words.
3. We think through words.
4. Words point to experience.
Experience initially happens at the level of the tissues and cells. It is immediate and direct.
Information of that experience is sent to the brain, where it is recorded, organized, integrated, and stored as patterns of perception and habits of behavior.
The brain is the last to know, but then uses the information it receives to shape and influence new experiences through memory of past experiences and projection into the future.
For experience to be realized as new, awareness at the cellular level is necessary so that old nervous system habits no longer control or direct what is experienced.
By cellular level, I mean initiation and awareness directed locally by the cells.
When we integrate the cells and nervous system, we increase the potential for balanced physical and emotional responses.
|Join me for my online course on Perception as a Key to Embodying and Repatterning the Nervous System Part 1 and 2.
In this online course, we explore, through movement, touch, and consciousness, ways to embody and repattern perceptual and neurological processing and how embodying patterns of ease in the brain contributes to a sense of wellbeing.
