EMPOWER YOUR CELL(f)
by Natalie Pierson on April 10th, 2017

"The moment love arises in the heart,
all fear disappears,
light has come in and
no darkness is found."
-OSHO

Most can agree that life thus far hasn't been an easy process, and at times we have all experienced;  physical or emotional  pain, illness and other various forms of suffering. We sometimes wonder if we are 'doing it correctly' as we are learning to trust ourselves through life's various initiations.  As you begin to grow and spiritually mature, It can be equally difficult to realize all the times you thought or acted from a place void of love and selfless intention. 

....That is until we connect to our hearts and DEVELOP COMPASSION FOR OURSELVES; for our journey and the process of what some call our grand 'awakening.'

Our High heart center, sometimes referred to  as the seat of the soul, sits just beneath the collar bones and above the heart chakra.  This is "Where “intent” originates. This energy center is the connection between the reason of language and the emotions of the heart. It is also the GATE TO HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS which is based in love and therefore to a life in abundance, prosperity, joy, and satisfaction." (awakeningstate.com)  

Not coincidently is it physically the area where the thymus gland sits, which is the source of where our immune system superhero resides, called the 'helper T cells.'   

What I've learned about these immune cells in our physical body, is that they provide a deep metaphor and clue into how to deal with emotional, psychological and spiritual transformation.
I've summarized this process into as  4 STAGES.  

••••••••••••••••
KEEP THESE 4 STAGES IN MIND AS WE LEARN ABOUT THE IMMUNE SYTEMS KEY PLAYERS.

1- AWARENESS
2- IDENTIFICATION
3- INTERCONNECTEDNESS and
4- INTEGRATION

​••••••••••••••••••

Let me introduce you to the adaptive immune system.  

We have 2 immune responses that take place.  The first is a Humeral response which is where free floating cells attract and attack pathogens (virus/bacteria) in the body.  B-lymphocytes (cells) are most active here containing antibodies that present what are called antigens to the invaders creating a bridge to bind them.  When bound together, the B-cell then becomes activated and goes into memory cells to duplicate the antibody so it can recognize this pathogen to catch the intruder faster next time.  

In a destructive process called endocytosis, B-cells literally take in the intruder by engulfing it into itself to then 'present' or spit out the bits and pieces to other helper cells that then carry them off.

In a Cell mediated response there are two groups of cells here called; helper T-cells, and Cytotoxic t-cells (they help kill other cells that are infiltrated).  Helper T-cells are some times called the 'general', the white horseman, or the alarm that gives a  call to action in the immune system.  These cells are summoned from the thymus gland and are able to call out to recruiting more b-cells if new antibodies need to be made or cytotoxic t-cells if cells need to be killed.

Without going too deep into the physiology of this process It inspired me to think about our unconscious emotions and inner psychological conflicts that get played out in our relationships and in everyday life.  

"As is the human body, so is the cosmic body.  As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind.  As is microcosm, so is the macrocosm.  As is the atom, so is the universe."
 -The Upanishads


In a way, our 'suffering' could be analogous to our B-cells being on vacation, not doing their job.  Either we are ignorant to these mental/emotional 'pathogens' floating around,  or perhaps even in denial, fearfully avoiding our issues until the intruders inevitably fill up our psyche and spirit. This usually plays itself out manifesting as physical pain, dis-ease, and on the collective level as rage, violence and war. 

If we humans each represent a B- cell, then you could say that our unconscious thoughts and emotions are like a free floating virus or bacteria trying to send us a message.  This process has happened again and again.  We have been in relationships, had jobs or been in situations that have perpetually repeated themselves as perhaps in the form of heart breaking, immune compromising, self sabotaging or victimhood patterns. 

So I ask you.  Are you ready to look and take responsibility for the chaos in your life?

Do you still want to choose chaos or are you open to leaning into more clarity, consciousness and compassion? 

because who is the main factor in all of your relationships?  
that's right..... 
YOU!

SO LETS GET EMPOWERED! 

STAGE 1.  AWARENESS;  With mindfulness and presence you become aware of your 'free floating' feelings and fluctuating states of mind.  You will know something needs to be cleared from your system when you become triggered and activated, digging into your memory cells from past or karmic wounds being brought to the surface to inform you.

Through meditation, conscious breathing and yoga, these are all tools to help you; slow down, be mindful, see clearly and take responsibility for your life so you don't have to duplicate these patterns.  When you have a sincere desire to look at the chaos you gotta say 'that's it!  enough is enough!  I can't take these 'intruders' anymore!  

Congratulations!

You are taking steps towards clearing up your system to be free from victim mentality patterns.

Yessss!!!  

STAGE 2.  The process of IDENTIFYING pain is analogous to the helper T-cells being alerted!  Hey guys we need help, we have some shame arising!  We have anger coming up!  Look here comes Revenge!  Oh boy we're starting to create unhealthy expectations!  The message that your sickness, physical pain or emotions have been trying to communicate can now be heard clearly with non-judgement and you can move into the next stage.  

Everything is energy and communication.  Are you open to listening?  Can you love yourself even when you want to run away or avoid what feelings are being triggered?

Everything has its timing.  

Keep breathing and keep affirming your intentions to see what needs to be seen. 

You're doing great!  

STAGE 3.  INTERCONNECTEDNESS.  This may be the point when you reach out to another 'helper B-cell' aka trusted family member, friend or therapist that can support you.  Perhaps you just need to be heard in a safe space for you to sort out your own thoughts.  Maybe you need to see an experienced healer that can help you 'discharge the activation' and bring you into a new state of emotional and energetic alignment. 

I've found that by 'engulfing' the exact thing that has triggered, scared me or tried to avoid is exactly how I've healed and empowered myself into the NEXT LEVEL OF GROWTH AND OWNERSHIP in my life.  

I've been jealous, needy, and very insecure at times, but I've committed myself to looking at these messengers and loving them as a part of the human experience too.  I can now have more compassion for myself and those going through it because Ive acknowledged and accepted my experience. 

I've definitely avoided A LOT of things !!

But as my brother would say 'what we resist, persists' and boy is he right! 

Take in what you've viewed as your weaknesses.  Make a list.  Take in your shames, your guilt your wounds and let them strengthen you then release what no longer serves you.  

Because ultimately the immune system works in exactly the same way.  It goes right towards the pathogen to 'engulf it'.  

So you see the exact things you think you suffer from are the exact same things that empower you. 

Its truly so brilliant.  Our wounds help guide us to be our own healer!

Stage 4.  INTEGRATION.  Allow yourself to CULTIVATE GRATITUDE at the stage of integration for you have actively chosen to seek help and move forward in making clearer and healthier decisions in your life.  You are making time for meditation, introspection to move in your body and incorporate other practices that support and serve your highest evolution.

YOU DESERVE TO FEEL HAPPY, HEALTHY AND FREE!  ITS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT !!! 

Bit by bit, as life unfolds, you are able to transform previous sufferings, ignorance and misperceptions into a new found unconditional love and appreciation.  Your story begins to change and you are more flexible, patient, and receptive to how you perceive life.  

When you take time to listen and slow down you have more choices  in HOW to respond to life. Your high heart is expanding and you realize that love and support have always been 'here', perhaps you weren't able to feel it or perceive it.  

Physical healing IS quite an extraordinary spiritual process!

I do hope you've enjoyed this article and if nothing more perhaps it planted seeds or ignited other ideas in your beautiful mind. 

Again If you need support in these rapid times of change the nature of my treatments address physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions of us to integrate and empower ourselves.
