Emotions are felt in our bodies by the actions of the endocrine system. The endocrine system is our emotional self in physical manifestation. Emotional issues affect the health of the hormone producing glands. It is known that we feel our feelings far speedier than the hormones can convey them to our bodies, this implies that we are first and foremost an energetic field of awareness and not just a physical machine.
Emotional vulnerability, once isolated from self-indulgence, contains the potential of great discovery. Vulnerability exposes sensitivity. Sensitivity is pure feeling. Informed sensitivity is a better form of data gathering than is relying on preconceptions, projections and anal tightening. Informed sensitivity knows when it is truly appropriate to raise or drop shields, allowing us to relax and trust ourselves.
