It’s where we LIVE!
The intersection of spirit, soul, and body. One affects the other. Interdependent. Related.
If our body is sick, it wears on our emotions. We begin to battle in our mind and struggle to control our “what-if” thought patterns.
Lately, I’ve been studying this intersection of spirit, soul, and body.
I’m convinced that paying attention to the connectivity of how God created us, gives us a better understanding of the complexity that God formed in us.
Our mind controls our body. Our thoughts control our mind. But sometimes, our body can shout messages that begin to control our mind.
WHO’S actually in control?
To be unaware of the process of interoception (how we understand and process our body’s inner sensations) is to be unaware of how the enemy can attack.
What are the inner sensations that we react to?
A change in temperature that we notice but don’t address. A rise or drop in blood pressure or heart rate. The issue of digestion going somewhat awry. A hot flash.
If you hear a police siren and see flashing lights in your rearview mirror… your stomach drops.
Sweat begins to form. Your blood pressure rises and your breathing shallows. It’s your brain reacting and you automatically begin to pull over.
Why? It’s called Allostasis.
It’s your body’s way of regulating your internal systems by anticipating needs and preparing to satisfy them… before they arise.
Interoception is your brain’s representation of sensations from your own body and is the sensory consequence of this activity.
The Word of God is our “user manual” for this sophisticated piece of equipment we call our body.
So, how do we get our brain running right?
We don’t just stop here. If you want to have what everyone else has… just do what everyone else does.
OR. . .
RENEW your mind.
TUNE it up.
TRANSFORM it by operating God’s way.
LEARN about this beautiful machinery God gave us.
(I hope this wasn’t too technical.)
I’m just trying to show you that “the ankle bone’s connected to the (clap) knee bone!” Lol
Spirit… soul… and body.
We can’t separate them. But, we CAN understand them!
WHO wants help with their mind???
Help is HERE!
