I rarely say, Please read this…but, please read this. Sharing a huge, pause-to-let-it-sink-in, moment from earlier today: I did not know that the adrenal glands produce DHEA, the precursor to all hormones. Did you?
I knew that they produce adrenaline and cortisol when stressed, and are well known for kicking us into fight/flight/freeze.
I knew that adrenal fatigue/burnout is as prevalent as it is chronic in many of our lives. But, I did not know that the adrenals also play a fundamental role in hormone balance. It’s like they play both ends of the court, both offense and defense!
Further, did you know that the very best feelings we experience from the heart — love, joy, laughter, genuine pleasure and ecstasy — builds DHEA??! Which in turn, balances hormones for both men and women.
Imagine a scale where, on the one side, the pan is full with DHEA and the body is running well, and, the other pan is empty…no need for adrenaline or cortisol. Now, imagine the reverse where the pan that is full is the adrenaline and cortisol pumping one, whilst the DHEA side is empty. Did you just feel that in your body? Feels a lot like life, doesn’t it?
Which does the imposition prefer? What does fear stimulate? Hello. Fight/flight/freeze. A rush of corrosive hormones and down we spiral.
Puts having fun in a whole new light doesn’t it??? What a great tool for exiting the control matrix, ha!
I came upon this revelation this morning, quite by accident (as if there were such things, right ;-)?), courtesy of Dr. Christiane Northrup, an ob/gyn who has gained much ground in reclaiming the wisdom of the female body and breaking with the mechanistic paradigms that have robbed us all of that magic. I suspect many of you have heard of her.
If you take the plunge and have a listen to this short video, she tells it so much better, plus more engaging epigenetics info. I love her use of the word portal. Consider the level at which she offers her wisdom, and pull it deeper into our realm of awakening awareness and reclaiming our sovereignty. And, while she is a woman doctor, speaking primarily to women, her message is absolutely just as vital for men, so please have a listen? It appears I cannot embed the video, so here is the link:
Can we begin to share more humor with each other?
Shall we reclaim our balance and regain our vibrancy?
Imagine laughter as a way to break free. I like the sounds of that. You?
