If you have ever dealt with a physical injury perhaps you can remember how areas of your body compensated to deal with the injured part. If you had a knee injury maybe you limped for some time, one side of your body becoming stronger, tension and aches resulting in some areas while other areas became more flexible. This is what happens with a physical injury. What about an emotional one?
Body structure changes with both physical as well as emotional trauma. With a physical injury, though apparently local, a systemic effect results with changes in neural activity, blood and lymph flow, and muscular contraction. Since the body acts as a unified whole, collectively responding to injury, any minute change will have a profound effect on the structural function of all aspects of the body.

Did you see her run? Did you see her smile? Did you see her do all this despite the pain, in the face of the pain, growing stronger and stronger, more and more beautiful THROUGH the pain?

As the stories go, many have sought, battled towards, and even claimed to have discovered the “fountain of youth.” Perhaps we can imagine the emotional state of these mythological and historical figures while embarking on their journeys. What did they feel as they were searching, when they failed, or when they uncovered this supposed fountain of youth? Their journey was outward, a search for a tangible site, but the search continued today has been conducted by modern scientists and they may have unlocked at least one source: the heart.
Have you ever felt the ache of a broken heart? The swelling of pride in your chest for someone you love? The sensation of calm washing through you when you exercise compassion?

The mind-body connection. How far connected is it exactly and what does this mean?
Many have heard the wonder stories of people who have miraculously cured themselves of cancer, even recovered from paralysis. What has your reaction been? Amazement? Wonder? Hope? Disbelief? –even anger? For an individual living in relative health the stories are often just stories. For those struggling with a chronic illness or condition or having watched someone else do so, the mind may see-saw from one of enthusiastic inspiration to frustrated despair. More
