Chapter Two: The True Nature of Your Mind — How It Protects You and Hurts You

"A thirty-seven-year-old man who'd had chronic prostatitis, an inflammation of the prostate gland, for seventeen years came to see me. His symptoms included urinary frequency and urgency, lower abdominal and testicular pain, and occasional burning during urination, and he was in a great deal of discomfort. Urological studies show that in 92 percent of prostatitis cases, there is no associated infection — that is, the prostate is inflamed, but tests don't reveal any medical problem. We physicians call this kind of problem a 'functional disorder.'

"I told this man that we frequently store negative emotions in the body, and that they can cause actual physical problems, including functional disorders, such as prostatitis. In the course of our conversation, he said that his mother was very abusive toward him when he was growing up, and that he had a tremendous amount of anger about it, but he had 'held it in' for years.

"I explained that his resisting feeling those negative emotions over the years had likely contributed to weaknesses in his health. We worked together for one session, using direct clearing methods to address his pent-up anger. Shortly thereafter, he was symptom-free for the first time in nearly two decades. At subsequent follow-ups, he remained symptom-free."

— Eric B. Robins, M.D.


In a typical visit to a doctor, a patient might complain of a headache, insomnia, backache, vague stomach or abdominal discomfort, or urinary problem. The physician, being a scientist and wanting to be thorough, notes the patient's symptoms and conducts an examination. He or she then offers what is called the "differential diagnosis," which is the spectrum of possible reasons for the symptoms, ranging from the simplest and least problematic to the most severe and life-threatening. The doctor bases the differential diagnosis on his experience observing these symptoms, their frequency, location, and severity, as well as the patient's medical history. For example, the differential diagnosis for a headache might include sinus headache, muscle tension caused by poor posture at a person's desk, migraine, and even a brain tumor. One differential diagnosis for abdominal discomfort might include indigestion, mild food poisoning, irritable bowel syndrome, an ulcer, or the early stages of stomach cancer.

The doctor then orders a few diagnostic tests to check for any serious illnesses.

Several days later, the doctor calls the patient with the results, and the news is good. "All your tests are negative; there's nothing wrong," the doctor says. The patient is relieved that there is no serious problem but then asks, "Why am I still having symptoms if 'nothing's wrong'?"

The doctor replies, "Well, we're really not sure," and again tries to reassure the patient that this condition, though without an apparent cause, is nothing serious. The doctor continues, "If your symptoms are creating too much discomfort, we can give you something to help you feel better." This usually means a prescription — for example, extra-strength Motrin for severe headaches, muscle relaxers for back or neck tension, or a stomach acid inhibitor such as Tagamet for indigestion, to name a few popularly dispensed medications. These remedies may or may not relieve the symptoms.

Thus, the patient often comes away from the encounter without any real understanding of the problem, its cause, or what can be done about it, other than to take medicine to control the symptoms.

Seventy percent of all visits to a primary care physician proceed like this, with patients seeking treatment for difficult-to-diagnose problems called functional disorders, which are ailments that cause real, discernible symptoms but that present no medically detectable cause: no virus, bacteria, tumor, mass, or structural abnormality. Functional disorders include problems such as irritable bowel syndrome and many other types of gastrointestinal complaints, many types of headaches and backaches, many types of urinary urgency and frequency, many types of pelvic pain in women, and so on. These problems are termed "functional" because, despite a lack of perceptible pathology, the body's functioning is disrupted. Even though there is no apparent reason for the symptoms, however, people with functional disorders still suffer real pain and discomfort. Crushing headaches can prevent them from leading a normal life; chronic gastrointestinal upsets can interfere with their ability to enjoy many foods; painful back spasms can render them bedridden; the overpowering and sometimes embarrassing need to go to the bathroom may occur at inconvenient or difficult times.

Even though they willingly prescribe medications to control these symptoms, many physicians believe that people with functional disorders either are exaggerating their complaints (hypochondria) or are stressed out, depressed, or anxiety-ridden. In other words, these physicians believe that such ailments are "all in the patient's head."

Functional disorders and many health problems are in our head because our "head" — or more properly, our mind — is actually located throughout our entire body. Our mind is inseparable from our body, so if we have a health problem in our head/mind, we've also got one in our body. This is the essence of the mind-body connection, which refers to a different, deeper understanding of a disorder that's "in a patient's head."


The Mind-Body Connection

There is certainly ample proof that we accept intuitively the link between mind and body. For example, we say, "you'll worry yourself sick," and "I was so stressed out I couldn't sleep," both of which demonstrate a belief that the mind can produce a physical effect on the body. Even the physician who orders up a drug that he knows will only relieve the symptoms of an ailment he believes is caused by stress is acknowledging that this person somehow is thinking himself sick.

Medical research is turning up harder scientific evidence that this mind-body link is not only intuitive, it's physiological. The most compelling data may come from Dr. Candace Pert, a psychoneuroimmunologist who has studied the effect of the mind and emotions on health. Dr. Pert's work has focused on biochemicals called "neuropeptides," which were found to be "messenger molecules" that carry the signals or commands from the brain to every cell in the body. Dr. Pert discovered that these neuropeptides act like keys that fit into locks, or specific sites on cells, called receptors. These receptors were found to cover the surface of all the cells in the body, including the immune system, the endocrine system, and those parts of the body controlled by the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS regulates many of the functions in our bodies that happen involuntarily, such as pulse rate, breathing, sweating, digestion, and blood flow, among others. Neuropeptides help us run our automatic bodily processes. They carry messages that tell the cells in the lungs to breathe in and out, the cells in the adrenal glands to release adrenaline, and so on.

These neuropeptides also carry, according to Dr. Pert's research, commands for our emotions. Thus, if someone is happy or sad or angry, a certain neuropeptide would carry that particular feeling throughout the body. While the definitive experiment that would identify in a rigorously scientific way which neuropeptide carries which emotion has yet to be devised, Dr. Pert nonetheless feels confident enough to assert that these neuropeptides are the "biochemical correlates of emotion." Dr. Pert also states that this system of messenger molecules and receptors represents a "psychosomatic communication network" that is the physiological link between the mind, the emotions, and the body. Messenger molecules are basically "chakra juice," she says. "The chemicals that mediate emotion and the receptors for those chemicals are found in every cell in the body."

Thus, modern medicine demonstrates scientifically what we know intuitively: that the mind is located throughout the body.


The Unconscious Mind

But we don't have just one mind located throughout the body. We actually have two minds, or if you prefer, two parts to one mind: the conscious mind and the unconscious mind, which is the mind that is our primary focus for health.

The conscious mind is our will, our here-and-now awareness. It is the part of the mind we use to set goals and perform rational evaluations. When you are instructed later on in the book to "use your intent" at the outset of various exercises, it is your conscious mind you will use.

The unconscious mind is that part of our mind that remains outside our conscious awareness. It carries out its mental duties without volition or will on our part. Here are the unconscious mind's primary responsibilities: First, it regulates all of our nonconscious bodily functions. The unconscious mind automatically controls our heartbeat, blood flow, breathing, brain function, endocrinological secretions, and all other organic operations of our body that would be impossible to control with conscious effort. Second, the unconscious mind stores our emotions, memories, behaviors, and knowledge, both individual and collective. These mental archives include our personal history, which consists of all our learnings, experiences, and influences — good and bad, positive and negative, whether they took place repeatedly over a lifetime or for a few fleeting but perhaps traumatic seconds. They also include our collective history, which consists of the memories, behaviors, and learnings we share as members of the human race. Some schools of psychology call this our "collective unconscious." Third, the unconscious mind controls the flow of prana throughout the body. It absorbs, assimilates, and distributes prana throughout the energy body that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body. Fourth, and perhaps most important to our discussion of health and illness, the unconscious mind strives to protect us from harm, danger, and pain.

How the Unconscious Mind "Protects" Us

The human species has evolved over hundreds of thousands of years, and we retain certain vestiges of our prehistoric ancestors' makeup. Some of these remnants are physical — for instance, the appendix serves no biological purpose today, but nonetheless we still have it. Many more of these remnants, however, are mental or emotional directives that have been hardwired into our unconscious mind. Foremost among these is its primary directive: to protect us and ensure our survival. This instinct is a mental relic from prehistoric times when our ancestors had to fight every day to survive. This protection/survival impulse is evident in our innate drive to procreate and our will to live. It also manifests as responses that help ensure our emotional or psychological survival, in coping mechanisms that help us "survive" negative emotions, traumatic memories, and harmful or limiting beliefs.

Ironically, though, the unconscious mind's principal emotional or psychological survival strategy can be a significant cause of health problems: It suppresses the hurtful thought, belief, feeling, or emotion from coming to conscious awareness, so that we won't have to reexperience the pain we originally felt. To offer a common example, nearly everyone grows up getting the clear message that it's not okay to feel or express certain emotions, such as anger. If you cry out of anger or frustration as a child, an impatient parent may yell at you to "shut up!"; a teacher may make you stand in the corner; or your classmates may tease you. As these incidents are repeated over time, we learn — our unconscious mind is programmed — to suppress our anger because we don't like to be yelled at, punished, or ridiculed; these things cause us pain. The unconscious mind also often buries our traumatic memory of the original incidents that led to the programming — in this case, with parents, teachers, and classmates — because these recollections, too, would cause us pain.

The unconscious mind means well in "protecting" us from this pain, but this suppression creates what neural physicist and researcher Dr. Paul Goodwin has called a "functional boundary," which occurs when some emotional disturbance, strongly held or suppressed in the musculature of the body, creates an energetic disturbance that inhibits the smooth flow of prana. Without an adequate supply of energy, the part of the body with the functional boundary malfunctions — it experiences either energetic congestion or depletion — and illness or a health problem can arise.

The three most common unconscious emotional survival strategies are: resisting feeling negative emotions, "clamping down," and forming limiting beliefs.


Resisting Feeling Negative Emotions

Noted psychologist Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., believes that "all negative emotions are gentle, short-lived waves." Yet many people can attest to the intensity and longevity of their fears: worries about job uncertainties or money; anger felt since childhood at parents or siblings; insecurities about personal appearance; the throat-tightening phobia about public speaking. How can they all be nothing more than mild blips of mental energy that come and go quickly? These are the kinds of negative emotions that tie people into knots trying to cope with them.

But there's a second part to Hendricks' definition: "All negative emotions are gentle, short-lived waves, unless we resist feeling them." It is our inability to acknowledge and feel negative emotions in our body — not the negative emotion itself — that creates functional boundaries to the smooth flow of prana.

Resisting negative emotions is also called denial. Let's talk about how we handle fear. In our society, it's unacceptable for anyone to feel and express fear, especially men. This is universal cultural programming. That doesn't stop us from being afraid of heights, spiders, public speaking, death, losing our job, or any one of hundreds of possible fear or phobia triggers. After all, it is quite human to be afraid. However, we are frequently disdainful of anyone who admits to fear, which is identified with being soft, weak, or overly sensitive. So, in a society in which we mustn't show fear, we learn (and in learning, we are programmed) at virtually every turn — from parents, schoolteachers, coaches, peers, and other authority figures — not to feel and express fear in any way. Our unconscious mind's survival instinct kicks in to "protect" us from feeling all fear, and thus buries any fears or phobias that we may have deep in our body, far from conscious awareness. Once buried and suppressed, these fears and phobias can create functional boundaries, which inhibit the flow of prana and can lead to health problems.

We do feel the effects of fear in our body, such as the racing heart, dry mouth, and tight stomach when we feel afraid, but only after the negative emotion has built to such an intensity that it bursts through our unconscious defenses. By the time we feel the physical effects of a negative emotion in our body, that means the emotion has overridden our unconscious survival mechanism and has created an energetic disturbance. At this point, a physical health problem may be imminent.


"Clamping Down"

If you experienced a traumatic event when you were young — for example, you were physically abused or grew up in a war-torn country — those memories are stored in your unconscious mind and, thus, throughout your entire body. In order to prevent these memories from surfacing to your conscious mind, where they would be replayed, your unconscious mind, acting on its prime directive to protect us, frequently "clamps down" on the memory: it contracts or constricts tightly the smooth muscles or internal organ where the memory is stored. Clamping down is a specific type of resistance to feeling negative emotions. Here are some examples of how clamping down creates functional boundaries that prevent the proper flow of prana and can ultimately lead to health problems:

• If your unconscious mind clamps down on the smooth muscles of the air passages of the lungs, this can become asthma.

• If your unconscious mind clamps down on the smooth muscles of the bladder, this can become urinary urgency or frequency.

• If your unconscious mind clamps down on the smooth muscles of the blood vessels, this can become high blood pressure. If it clamps down on specific blood vessels to the brain, this can lead to a migraine headache.

• If your unconscious mind clamps down on the smooth muscles of the intestinal tract, this can become irritable bowel syndrome, producing vague abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation.

(Note that all these ailments are functional disorders. This is why functional disorders are so tough to detect through most medical tests. Their origin is emotional and energetic rather than anatomic.)

The unconscious mind doesn't clamp down only on smooth muscles over which we have no conscious control, however. It can also clamp down and create functional boundaries in striated muscle — the larger structural muscles over which we do have voluntary control, as the work of Dr. John Sarno, a professor of physical medicine at New York University, has demonstrated.

In his practice, Dr. Sarno sees patients with the world's worst chronic pain: people who have had debilitating pain in their neck, shoulder, back, or legs for 20 or 30 years; people who have had multiple surgeries and multiple attempts at epidural pain relief (injections into the spine). Frequently they have had an MRI scan that reveals a serious anatomic abnormality such as a slipped disc, spinal arthritis, or spinal cord stenosis (narrowing of the channel through which the spinal cord passes). Nearly all of his patients have been told by another doctor that it is this anatomic abnormality that is causing their pain.

Yet with this group of 20,000 patients, some of whom he has been following for up to 25 years, he has a remarkable 88 percent cure rate. An additional 10 percent of his patients are classified as much improved. He has achieved these remarkable results without surgery or any traditional medical remedy. Instead, he bases his treatment plan on two radical premises: first, he rejects the traditional medical cause-and-effect relationship between anatomical defects and pain; and second, he treats the pain as emotionally based tension caused by striated muscles clamping down, a problem he calls "Tension Myofascial Syndrome," or TMS.

Sarno exhaustively reviewed the medical literature on chronic pain and found numerous studies showing that if you perform an MRI scan on 100 middle-aged people with no back pain, you'll find that 40 to 50 percent of them have a slipped disk just as a matter of course. Additionally, he found studies revealing that people who did have abnormal MRI scans, which showed significant anatomic abnormalities, such as slipped disks, spinal arthritis, or stenosis, were no more likely to develop musculoskeletal pain in the future than people whose MRI scans were normal.

From these studies, he developed his theory: The proximate cause of structural pain is muscles clamping down on nerves and limiting the blood flow into the afflicted area, which leads to local hypoxia, or lack of oxygen. But the ultimate cause is the person's inability to regulate and reconcile negative emotions, principally anger, because it's these negative emotions held tightly in the body that are causing the muscles to clamp down.

Sarno asserts that it is a generally accepted societal norm that it is not okay for people to feel their negative emotions, especially anger. When anger wells up, as it does for everyone from time to time, the unconscious mind, in its sincere but misguided attempt to protect us and help us survive in a world in which such emotions are not appropriate, says, "It's not okay to be feeling this anger." The unconscious mind then "protects" us by causing certain muscles to clamp down and generate pain in order to divert attention away from our anger.

Sarno's treatment consists of having his patients come to two lectures. His principal messages are that it's not a slipped disk or bone spur that is causing the pain, and that a different view of how to remedy the pain is required for healing. Sarno instructs his patients to stop babying their back and taking pills when they feel pain. Instead, they should ask themselves what they're angry about. Additionally, and perhaps most important, Sarno also tells them that they don't have to get rid of their anger in order to be free of the pain, just their resistance to feeling the anger.


Limiting Beliefs

If, as a child, you saw that your parents weren't really happy in their lives, and there was a great deal of fighting and yelling at home all the time, what type of beliefs do you think you might form about marriage?

If, when you were a little girl, you had your heart set on being a dancer, yet you weren't terribly coordinated and the instructor told you "really don't have a dancer's body," what beliefs do you think you might develop about your own sense of self?

If you consistently brought home report cards with six As and one B, yet your father repeatedly berated you for not having all As, how do you think you'd feel about any future efforts that weren't perfect?

All these are examples of ways we develop limiting beliefs.

Limiting beliefs are mental judgments that we've made about ourselves, the way the world works, or the way we interact in the world based on faulty, incomplete, or improperly understood information we have received, typically in the formative years of childhood. This information can come from primary authority figures (parents, teachers, clergy) or peers (classmates, friends), or indirectly from other sources in the world (books, television, movies, advertising). This information may be true on some level. Perhaps your parents' marriage wasn't very good and loving, or you really didn't have the ability to be a dancer. The information may even be well-intended. Your father may have honestly believed he was trying to motivate you to settle for nothing less than your best effort. The mind of a child lacks the ability to discriminate and sort through these messages, however, so these unfiltered messages impinge upon your unconscious mind and lead you to form untrue assumptions about yourself and the world. These gross generalizations become limiting beliefs, which, in some ways, are the toughest types of unconscious programming to dislodge or bypass.

The primary way in which limiting beliefs create health problems for you is through the negative emotions, stress, and frustration they produce when you try to act against them in the course of living your life. Using the examples above, here is how limiting beliefs create negative emotions that lead to health problems:

• If, as a result of a less-than-satisfying home life when you were growing up, you formed the limiting belief that "no one can be happy in marriage," you may well have continuing relationship problems throughout your adult life. You may end up with someone with whom you're incompatible. Or you may have a series of unhappy relationships or marriages. You may grow angry, bitter, and resentful, unable to give or accept love.

• If, because you were unable to become a successful dancer, you formed the limiting belief that that you were "no good at anything," you may filter many of your life choices through that belief. You may end up under-achieving in many areas, settling for jobs, relationships, and situations that you know aren't the best for you. You may develop chronic self-doubt and become frustrated at every turn, lacking the confidence to strive for what you really want and without the ability to be happy with what you have achieved.

• If your father's haranguing you about your good-but-not-perfect report card caused you to form the belief that "I have to be perfect in everything I do," you may go through life with unrealistic expectations, always counting on yourself and everyone around you to be flawless. In an imperfect world with imperfect people and imperfect efforts, that's a formula for a life of disappointment, anger, and unhappiness.


The Unconscious Mind Is Neutral, But You Can "Get It on your Side"

The unconscious mind is neutral. It is neither "on your side" nor "against you." It is often said that the unconscious mind functions much like a computer, carrying out its duties in accordance with the information that is loaded into it. Most of its programs are beneficial, or at least have a positive or utilitarian aspect. For instance, it's a good thing that you don't have to think consciously to control your respiration. Some of its programs have both positive and negative implications. For example, it's also good that, when we are in a life-threatening situation, we don't have to activate with conscious thought all the bodily changes that we need to occur to save ourselves. But, as you read earlier, this protection impulse of the unconscious mind can go too far and cause problems. Finally, each of us has many other programs, as well, that we have learned, developed, or had imprinted upon us in the course of living our lives and coming under the influence of parents, schools, peers, the media, and other authority figures. They're unique to us. Some of these deeply hidden programs, as you saw in this chapter, can be the root cause of many physical and emotional ailments.

But here's the good news: You can reprogram the unconscious mind. Even though your unconscious mind may have created programs that cause you personal conflicts, relationship difficulties, or health problems, these programs can be altered or bypassed; you can get your unconscious "back on your side." You can clear out the negative emotions, traumatic memories, and limiting beliefs that are evidence of harmful programming — and that cause many health problems — by learning to communicate with your unconscious in the right way. You'll learn two such powerful communication techniques in Chapter 3.


Summary of Energetic and Emotional Causes of Health Problems

Here is a summary of the key points in Chapters 1 and 2 regarding the energetic and emotional causes of health problems:

1. We have an energetic anatomy, or energy body, that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body. This energy body also acts as a mold or template for the physical body.
2. The unconscious mind is the central repository of our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, emotions, and memories — both positive and negative.
3. The unconscious mind is located throughout the entire physical body via a neurobiochemical messengering system. At this physiological level, the unconscious mind delivers commands to the parts of the body concerned with our involuntary functions; it also carries our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, emotions, and memories to all parts of the body.
4. The unconscious mind is also located throughout the entire physical body via the energy body. At this energetic level, the unconscious mind regulates and controls the flow of prana through the body.
5. We have an unconscious mind that behaves somewhat like a "neutral computer." It acts according to the data, or programming, that has been entered into it. We have programs hardwired into our unconscious mind, and we have programs that we have learned or picked up in the course of living our lives. These programs may or may not be beneficial for us, but negative or harmful programs can be altered or bypassed. The unconscious mind can be reprogrammed by learning how to communicate with it properly.
6. The unconscious mind can and does place in the physical body negative emotions such as fear or anger, memories of personal traumas, limiting beliefs about our insecurities and personal sense of self-worth, and the everyday worries and anxieties of life and work. It doesn't do this maliciously, but rather, out of a desire to "protect" us from having the pain of these emotions and events brought back to conscious awareness, where we'd have to relive them.
7. Resisting feeling these negative emotions, traumatic memories, and limiting beliefs can create energetic disturbances called functional boundaries, which are barriers to the smooth flow of prana necessary for good health. These energetic disturbances act like boulders in a creek. Upstream, there is a backup and overflow; downstream, the flow is reduced to a trickle. In your energetic anatomy, these disturbances correspond to energetic congestion and depletion.
8. The physical body responds to the energetic disturbance with more muscular tension, resistance, and strain, which feed the cycle of resistance and energetic disturbance.
9. The intensity of the energetic disturbance — either congestion or depletion or a combination of both — increases until, finally, a physical health problem arises.

In the next chapter, you'll learn the first of the six healing steps, clearing negative emotions and limiting beliefs, a range of techniques specifically designed to address the energetic, unconscious, and emotional origins of health problems.
