Do you feel tired all the time, even after a night of sleep? Do you feel overwhelmed, unfocused and have difficulty just getting through the day? Have you had food cravings with weight gain, especially in the abdominal area? You might have what's known in holistic circles as adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue is the inability of the adrenal glands to respond appropriately following a sustained period of maintaining high cortisol levels, usually the result of severe, ongoing stress. Although there are nutrition and supplement recommendations that can ease symptoms, as an expert in energy medicine I can tell you that ultimately this syndrome has energetic origins. In my work, getting to the root of adrenal fatigue involves correcting the underlying energetic imbalance.
The Evolution of Adrenal Fatigue
The basis of all of life is energy, including your thoughts, beliefs and emotions. As such, the state of your energy determines the state of your health. All biochemical processes in the body are initiated by energy - including adrenaline release. The energy-belief that a situation is a threat to your safety releases adrenaline, whether you are actually in danger or not.
The job of our adrenal glands is to produce adrenaline in response to danger. This is a mammalian response that works well in the animal kingdom to maintain safety and preserve life. But unlike humans, animals live in the moment. Once the danger has passed, an animal will return to its pre-danger state of being. Humans generally do not return to their pre-danger state of being once danger has passed. This is because humans are the only species on the planet with a thinking mind. We remember situations where we didn't feel safe and keep replaying them in our mind and projecting them onto the future. This creates a perpetual state of not feeling safe.
Adrenal fatigue happens when we use adrenaline for daily living because we are living in a state of fear. Healing this involves shifting from living in a state of fear to living in a state of love. How do you do that? Simply this: love the part of you that is afraid.
The Healing of Adrenal Fatigue
Your heart is 5,000 times more powerful than your brain. A brain-centered state means fear-centered and running on adrenaline. But as we have seen, adrenaline is a limited source of energy that will eventually burn out. A heart-centered state means love-centered and running on universal energy. The universal energy field is an unlimited source of energy that you can tap into at any time through heart-centered emotions: unconditional love, acceptance and compassion.
Choose to feel compassion for the part of you that is afraid and accept it unconditionally. Every part of you is worthy of love and acceptance, no matter what. Here is an affirmation to help you make the shift:
Even though I have been in a state of fear, I am willing to love, accept and forgive myself completely and deeply.
Connecting to your heart is the path to health and happiness. Accept your fearful parts and receive the light of healing.
