The effects of stress on our minds and bodies and how we can stop and reverse the effects by changing the way we think.

The effects of stress on our minds and bodies

By now, it is a well-known fact that stress has a negative effect on our bodies and minds. What actually causes our stress? Is the cause of our stress real or is it the way we perceive things that happen in our lives? Are we wasting our time and energy worrying about something that is not real or not even worth worrying about? Why do we allow things that happen outside of us to determine how we feel and react?



We tend to focus on other people and things happening around us. This means that we are not focusing enough on ourselves and waste our time and energy on things that are of no value to us and only affects our mental and physical health negatively.

We are constantly defending ourselves from the outer world, causing us to be in a fight or flight mode most of the time. This means that too much stress hormones are released into our bodies too often.

it's a scientific fact that the hormones
00:05
of stress down regulate genes and create
00:08
disease long-term effects human beings
00:10
because of the size of the neocortex we
00:13
can turn on the stress response just by
00:14
thought alone even think about our
00:16
problems and turn on those chemicals
00:17
that means then our thoughts could make
00:22
us sick so if it's possible that our
00:24
thoughts could make us sick is it
00:26
possible that our thoughts could make us
00:27
well the answer is absolutely yes
00:30
[Music]
00:33
all organisms in nature can tolerate
00:36
short-term stress you know a deer gets
00:39
chased by a pack of coyotes when it out
00:42
runs the Coyotes it goes back to grazing
00:44
and the event is over and the definition
00:46
of stress is when your brain and body
00:48
are knocked out of balance out of
00:50
homeostasis the stress response is what
00:53
the body and Nate Lee does to return
00:54
itself back to order so you're driving
00:56
down the road someone cuts you off you
00:59
jam on the brakes you may give them the
01:01
finger and then you settle back down and
01:03
the event is over and boom now
01:05
everything's back back to normal but
01:08
what if it's your co-worker sitting
01:10
right next to you and all day long
01:13
you're turning on those chemicals
01:14
because they're pushing all your
01:15
emotional buttons when you turn on a
01:18
stress response and you can't turn it
01:20
off now you're headed for a disease
01:22
because no organism in nature can live
01:25
an emergency mode for that extended
01:27
period of time
01:30
95% of who we are by the time we're 35
01:33
years old is a memorized set of
01:36
behaviors emotional reactions
01:37
unconscious habits hardwired attitudes
01:39
beliefs and perceptions that function
01:42
like a computer program so then person
01:46
can say with their 5 percent of their
01:48
conscious mind I want to be healthy I
01:50
want to be happy I want to be free but
01:53
the body's on a whole different program
01:55
a habit is a redundant set of automatic
02:00
unconscious thoughts behaviors and
02:03
emotions that's acquired through
02:05
repetition if you think about it people
02:07
wake up in the morning they begin to
02:10
think about their problems those
02:12
problems are circuits memories in the
02:15
brain each one of those memories are
02:18
connected to people and things at
02:20
certain times and places and if the
02:22
brain is a record of the past the moment
02:24
they start their day they're already
02:26
thinking in the past each one of those
02:30
memories has an emotion emotions are the
02:33
end product of past experiences so the
02:36
moment they recall those memories of
02:37
their problems they all of a sudden feel
02:39
unhappy they feel sad they feel pain now
02:42
how you think and how you feel creates
02:45
your state of being so the person's
02:47
entire state of being when they start
02:49
their day is in the past
02:51
so what does that mean the familiar past
02:53
will sooner or later be predictable
02:55
future if you believe that your thoughts
02:58
have something to do with your destiny
03:00
and you can't think greater than how you
03:03
feel our feelings have become the means
03:06
of thinking by very definition of
03:08
emotions you're thinking in the past and
03:10
for the most part you're going to keep
03:11
creating the same life so then people
03:14
grab their cell phone they check their
03:16
what's up they check their texts they
03:18
check their emails they check facebook
03:20
they take a picture of their feet they
03:21
post it on Facebook they tweet something
03:23
they do Instagram they check the news
03:26
and now they feel really connected to
03:27
everything that's known in their life
03:29
and then they go through a series of
03:31
routine behaviors they get out of bed on
03:34
the same side they go to the toilet they
03:36
get a cup of coffee they take a shower
03:38
they can trust they drive to work the
03:39
same way they do the same things they
03:41
see the same people at
03:43
the same emotional buttons and that
03:44
becomes the routine and it becomes like
03:47
a program so now they've lost their free
03:50
will to a program and there's no unseen
03:54
hand doing it to them so when it comes
03:56
time to change the redundancy of that
03:59
cycle becomes a subconscious program
04:02
most people then wait for crisis or
04:04
trauma or disease or diagnosis you know
04:06
they wait for a loss some tragedy to
04:09
make up their mind to change and my
04:11
message is why wait and you can learn
04:14
and change in a state of pain and
04:15
suffering or you can learn and change in
04:17
a state of joy and inspiration I think
04:18
right now the cool thing is that people
04:20
are waking up the moment you start
04:25
feeling abundant and worthy you are
04:28
generating wealth the moment you're
04:30
empowered and feel it you're beginning
04:32
to step towards your success the moment
04:35
you start feeling whole your healing
04:37
begins and when you love yourself and
04:39
you love all of life you'll create an
04:41
equal and now you're causing an effect
04:42
and I think that's the the difference
04:45
between living as a victim in your world
04:48
saying I am this way because of this
04:50
person or that thing or this experience
04:52
they made me think and feel this way
04:54
when you switch that around you become a
04:56
creator of your world and you start
04:58
saying my thinking and my feeling is
05:00
changing an outcome in my life and now
05:02
that's a whole different game and we
05:04
start believing more that we're creators
05:06
of reality if you're not being defined
05:09
by a vision of the future then you're
05:12
left with the old memories of the past
05:13
and you will be predictable in your life
05:16
if you can sit your body down and tell
05:21
it to stay like an animal stay right
05:23
here I'm gonna feed you when we're done
05:26
you can get up and check your emails you
05:27
can do all your texts but right now
05:29
you're gonna sit there and obey me when
05:32
you do that properly and the you're not
05:34
eating anything or smelling anything or
05:36
tasting anything you're not up
05:37
experiencing and feeling anything you
05:39
would have to agree with me that you're
05:41
being defined by a thought right so when
05:44
the body wants to go back to its
05:46
emotional past and you become aware that
05:49
your attention is on that emotion and
05:51
where you place your attention is where
05:53
you place your energy you're siphoning
05:55
your energy out of the present moment
05:56
into the past and you become aware of
05:59
that and you settle your body back down
06:02
in the present moment because it's
06:03
saying well it's eight o'clock you
06:04
normally get upset because you're in
06:05
traffic around this time and here you
06:07
are sitting and we're used to feeling
06:09
anger and you're off schedule oh it's 11
06:12
o'clock and usually check your emails
06:14
and judge everybody well your body is
06:16
looking for that that predictable
06:18
chemical state every time you become
06:21
aware that you're doing that and your
06:23
body is craving those emotions and you
06:25
settle it back down into the present
06:27
moment you're telling the body it's no
06:30
longer the mind that you're the mind and
06:32
now your will is getting greater than
06:34
the program and if you keep doing this
06:36
over and over again over and over again
06:37
over and over again just like training a
06:39
stallion or a dog it's just gonna say
06:42
I'm gonna sit and the moment that
06:46
happens and the body's no longer the
06:48
mind when it finally surrenders there's
06:50
a liberation of energy we go from
06:53
particle to wave from matter to energy
06:55
and we free ourselves from the chains of
06:58
those emotions that keep us in the in
07:00
the familiar past and so if you think 60
07:03
to 70 thousand thoughts in one day and
07:05
we do and 90% of those thoughts are the
07:07
same thoughts as the day before and you
07:08
believe that your thoughts have
07:09
something to do with your destiny your
07:11
life's not gonna change very much
07:12
because the same thought leads to the
07:14
same choice the same choice leads to the
07:16
same behavior the same behavior creates
07:18
the same experience and the same
07:19
experience produces the same emotion so
07:22
as you become familiar with the thoughts
07:24
the behaviors and the emotions of the
07:25
old self you're retiring that old self
07:28
as you fire and wire new thoughts and
07:30
can
07:30
in the body into a new emotional state
07:32
if you do that enough times it'll begin
07:35
to become familiar to you so it's so
07:37
important just like a garden if you're
07:41
planting a garden you got to get rid of
07:43
the weeds you got to take the plants
07:45
from the past year and you got to pull
07:47
them out the rocks that sift to the top
07:49
that are like our emotional blocks they
07:51
have to be removed that soil has to be
07:53
tenderized and broken down we have to we
07:56
have to make room to plant the new
07:57
garden so primarily we learn the most
08:00
about ourselves and others when we're
08:03
uncomfortable
08:07
the stronger the emotional reaction you
08:12
have to some experience in your life the
08:15
more you pay attention to the cause and
08:18
the moment the brain puts all of its
08:20
attention on the cause it takes a
08:22
snapshot and that's called a memory so
08:24
long-term memories are created from very
08:27
highly emotional experiences so what
08:32
happens then is that people think
08:34
neurologically within the circuitry of
08:36
that experience and they feel chemically
08:39
within the boundaries of those emotions
08:40
and so when you have an emotional
08:43
reaction to someone or something most
08:45
people think that they can't control
08:47
their emotional reaction well it turns
08:50
out if you allow that emotional reaction
08:51
it's called a refractory period to last
08:54
for hours or days that's called the mood
08:56
I say to someone hey what's up think so
08:59
I'm gonna move it well why are you in a
09:00
mood well I had this thing happen to me
09:02
five days ago and I'm having one long
09:04
emotional reaction if you keep that same
09:07
emotional reaction going on for weeks or
09:10
months
09:10
that's called temperament why is he so
09:13
bitter I don't know let's ask him why is
09:14
he so bitter why are you bitter well I
09:16
had this thing happened to me nine
09:18
months ago and if you keep that same
09:21
emotional reaction going on for years on
09:23
end
09:23
that's called a personality trait and so
09:26
learning how to shorten your refractory
09:29
period of emotional reactions is really
09:31
where that work starts so then people
09:34
when they have an event what they do is
09:37
they keep recalling the event because
09:40
the the emotions of stress hormones the
09:42
survival emotions are
09:44
saying pay attention to what happened
09:46
because you want to be prepared if it
09:48
happens again turns out most people
09:51
spend 70% of their life living in
09:54
survival and living in stress so they're
09:55
they're always anticipating the
09:58
worst-case scenario based on a past
10:01
experience and they're literally out of
10:03
the infinite potentials in the quantum
10:05
field they're selecting the worst
10:07
possible outcome and they're beginning
10:09
to emotionally embrace it with fear and
10:11
their conditioning their body into a
10:13
state of fear do that enough times body
10:16
has a panic attack without you you you
10:18
can't even predict it because it's
10:19
programmed subconsciously the hardest
10:22
part about change is not making the same
10:25
choices you did the baby for a period
10:27
and the moment you decide to make a
10:30
different choice get ready because it's
10:32
going to feel uncomfortable I think that
10:36
I think that the bigger thing is that we
10:38
we keep firing and wiring those circuits
10:41
they become more hardwired so there you
10:44
have a thought and then the program runs
10:46
but it's the emotion that follows the
10:49
thought if you have a if you have a
10:50
fearful thought you're gonna feel
10:52
anxiety the moment you feel anxiety your
10:54
brains checking in with your body and
10:55
saying yeah you're pretty anxious so
10:57
then you start thinking more
10:58
corresponding thoughts equal to how you
11:00
feel so the body says I want to return
11:04
back to familiar territory so the body
11:07
starts influencing the mind then it says
11:09
start tomorrow you're too much like your
11:12
mother you'll never change this isn't
11:13
gonna work for you this doesn't feel
11:15
right
11:16
and so if you respond to that thought as
11:20
if it's true
11:21
that same thought will lead to the same
11:23
choice which will lead to the same
11:25
behavior which will create the same
11:26
experience which produce the same
11:28
emotion people say to me well I can't
11:32
predict my future I'm in the unknown and
11:34
I always say the best way to predict
11:36
your future is to create it not from the
11:38
known but from the unknown what thoughts
11:40
do you want to fire and wire in your
11:42
brain what behaviors do you want to
11:45
demonstrate in one day the act of
11:47
rehearsing the mentally closing your
11:49
eyes and rehearsing the action by
11:52
closing your eyes and mentally
11:53
rehearsing some action if you're truly
11:56
present the brain
11:57
does not know the difference between
11:58
what you're imaging and what you're
12:00
experiencing in 3d world so then you
12:02
begin to install the neurological
12:04
Hardware in your brain to look like the
12:06
event has already occurred now your
12:08
brain is no longer a record of the past
12:09
now it's a map to the future and if you
12:12
keep doing it priming it that way the
12:15
hardware becomes a software program and
12:17
who knows you just may start acting like
12:18
a happy person and then I think that the
12:20
hardest part is to teach our body
12:24
emotionally what the future will feel
12:26
like ahead of the actual experience
