I chose this quote to represent The Brain-Heart-Gut connection seminar because it signifies the relationship between the stimulus to the Brain and how we react in the Gut and Heart. If we know how to take a moment or heed to the "space" between receiving information and reacting, we can move forward with a decision or a reaction in a healthy way or at least in a way that will provide more good than harm. This "space" is important in dealing with health, life, business and any occurrence that needs a moment of reflection before taking the next step. This space can also be referred to as a "knowledge gap" that needs time to be filled with information to result in an informed decision. If we do not take the moment between stimulus and response, we risk a negative reaction in the gut that can cause physical pain in the abdomen and emotional pain in the heart. This can eventually affect us in deeper tissues and before the brain has a chance to mentally accept that something negative has occurred, we find ourselves in a state of disease. The Brain-Heart-Gut Connection needs to be understood to allow us to live in a state of good health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Strengthening this connection may also result in less visits to the GI doctors as the dis-connect between the brain, heart and the gut causes GI upset and a myriad of symptoms.
A stronger connection can also enhance relationships, improve job productivity, increase energy and produce calmness because the "knowledge gaps" are filled with information that allows for educated decision making in all aspects of life.
If you would like to learn more about The Brain-Heart-Gut Connection, please register for the seminar and take the first steps in filling in the "space between stimulus in response" by closing the "knowledge gaps"!
