The sensory experiences we encounter daily are not just isolated instances affecting only the corresponding sense organ. Rather, they trigger a more comprehensive, holistic reaction, involving all the organs in our body. This participation of the entire body system impacts the accumulation or depletion of our internal energy and has profound implications for the process of manifestation.
Consider, for example, the act of seeing. When we look at something, it’s not just our eyes that are involved. The image is transmitted to our brain, interpreted, and triggers reactions throughout our body. A horrific image might cause our heart to beat faster, our breath to quicken, and our muscles to tense. Our cells and organs work in harmony to process and react to the image we see. This holistic response is not limited to our visual sense; it’s common to all senses, including hearing, taste, touch, and smell.
For instance, the sound of soothing music can trigger a relaxation response throughout our body, slowing our heart rate and breathing and encouraging muscle relaxation. In contrast, a loud, sudden noise can jolt our system into a stress response, speeding up our heart rate and triggering a flood of stress hormones.
Likewise, the taste of food doesn’t only affect our taste buds. It can trigger a cascade of digestive processes, affect our mood, and even influence our energy levels. A pleasant aroma can trigger feelings of calm and relaxation, while an unpleasant one can evoke disgust or discomfort. The touch of a loved one can stimulate the release of oxytocin, known as the ‘love hormone,’ promoting feelings of bonding and well-being.
Every experience we have through our senses triggers a response in our body, affecting our energy levels. Dopamine, often called the ‘feel-good hormone,’ plays a crucial role in this process. This neurotransmitter is associated with pleasure and reward. Activities and experiences that stimulate the release of dopamine can lead to an accumulation of energy.
Conversely, experiences that trigger stress responses can lead to energy depletion. By becoming more aware of these sensory experiences and their impact on our body and energy levels, we can take more conscious control over our energy accumulation and, consequently, our power to manifest.
