Nowadays, it is not uncommon for someone to suffer from mental and emotional problems. This is then not going to be something that they struggle with from time to time and can, therefore, put to one side; it will be something that makes it hard for them to handle their day-to-day life.
If someone was to find themselves in this position, they could end up coming to the conclusion they have a ‘chemical imbalance’. Ergo, the reason why they are experiencing life in this way is due what is taking place in their head.
One way to get a greater understanding of what is taking place would be to imagine a car that is low on oil and how this will stop it from being able to work properly. Once the car has been topped up with oil, though, everything will be fine.
So, as soon as one is able to rebalance the chemicals that are in their brain, their life will gradually begin to change. Perhaps one has been this way for a number of months or maybe even a few years.
A Welcome Relief
Alternatively, they have been this way for a as long as they can remember, meaning that they might not know what is it like to experience life differently. Yet, irrespective of how long have been this way for, they are undoubtedly going to want their life to change as a soon as possible.
Thankfully, they will have a clear idea why their life is the way it is and what needs to be done for it to change. What this is likely to involve is taking at least one pill, with this being something that they will need to do for the rest of their life.
A Few Steps Back
Now, it is highly unlikely that one came to the conclusion that they have a chemical imbalance after an enlightening dream or by spending time in nature, for instance. No, this is likely to be something that one came to believe after a visit to their Doctor.
If this wasn’t the case, it could have been the result of what they had read online or in a book. After hearing this, they may have believed that it would only be a matter of time before their life would change.
A Faulty Brain
Consequently, their brain is not going to be working properly and this could be put down to their genetics, for instance. If this is so, what their caregivers passed onto them will be why they are experiencing life in this way.
What this also means is that the experiences that they have had throughout their life won’t have had an effect on their brain. It will be as if their brain is separate from life itself; having an effect on their life but not being affected it.
One Way Traffic
One way to look at all this would be to say that this is no different to how someone can see themselves as merely an observer of their life. In the same way that they are not having an effect on what does or doesn’t happen to them, their brain is also separate from everything else.
When it comes to the former, this is typically something that takes place when one is out of touch with their body. With this in mind, it is also likely to show that when someone is on board with the latter, they are also out of touch with their body.
Someone like this is then going to be a human being, but they won’t be an integrated human being. If they were in touch with their body, they would see that they are not simply an observer of life.
And, as they are not simply an observer of life, there is no way that the brain in their head could not be affected by life. But in order for someone to change the view that they have, they will need to get back in touch with themselves.
If someone is stuck in their head and is out of touch with their body, it can show that they have experienced trauma. Not only will this have set them up to disconnect from themselves; it will also be playing a part in how they feel and the thoughts that they have.
There may have been a time in their adult life when they experienced trauma, or they may have experienced trauma during their early years. As a result of a one of occurrence or a number of occurrences, they would have lost touch with themselves.
The Enteric Nervous System
Along with this, it would have most likely had a detrimental effect on the brain that is just above their stomach. When this brain is not in a good way, it will be a lot harder for someone to feel good and to experience inner peace.
Thus, while it can be easy for someone to buy into the view that they are not having an effect on their life and their brain is just playing up, this doesn’t match up with reality. It is a view that can only make sense if someone is living on the surface of themselves.
There is no doubt that the drug industry loves the ‘chemical imbalance’ theory, as it is another way for them to make money. What this also does is keeps people dependent on authority figures for answers and stops them from looking within themselves for answers.
The irony here is that the people who promote this view are, even if they wear a white coat, likely to be completely out of touch with themselves. In light of this, if someone is not in a good way, it will be a good idea for them to find a therapist or a healer who can help them to heal their trauma.
