AM: how do you get along with your endocrine system?
Me: let’s see. I am not a doctor. Anything that has to do with medicine, I’ve put aside. I didn’t choose to be a doctor on this path, at least, and I don’t like anything to do with disease, especially. That said, I understand that I get along quite well with this system. Throughout my life I’ve gone through illnesses, specific times that have led me to understand that not all of my body was in balance, and so I had to deal with different situations, which I understand I’ve been able to get through. But everything related to the endocrine glands and hormones linked to this system, have worked well.
AM: an important explanation, because every day we will be able to focus on the parts of the body that we will be focusing on. And why do you consider or feel that your endocrine system has worked well?
Me: because today, as an adult, I feel that my overall growth has been good. I consider myself a person of good stature, of good physical containment. Skinny, yes. Harmonious with respect to my body. And the corresponding hormones have worked well along the way. I have never had any problems in this respect, in relation to what it represents.
AM: and why do you think it has been like this, in this way? We are already going to the emotional concept, above all.
Me: because I understand that in this path, I had to work on another side of the life process. That is to say, what I had to work on had more to do with another part of the body, which I understand suffered enough so that I could work emotionally what I should. In between, the endocrine system fulfilled its function and continues to do so, allowing me to develop according to what I needed, and at that point, I feel grateful to this system.
AM: Starting at puberty, with its ups and downs of feelings and sensations and physical changes, continuing, in the case of women, with menstrual cycles that affect so much, continuing with the pre-menopause and of course, the subsequent menopause, through pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding. These emotions are closely linked to hormonal fluctuations. But men also experience the effect of their hormones, and not only during adolescence, where it becomes very evident, or the stage of youth.
Hormones are present in both men and women, in their sleep rhythms, in the performance of sports, in sexual life and in hundreds of processes that occur in the organism as a consequence of the production, or lack, of hormones.
The metabolization of food, appetite, weight, thirst, memory, stress management and reaction, the chemical balance of the body, the amount of calcium in the blood, or sugar, the regulation of cholesterol, sexual desire. Everything is regulated by the endocrine system and the production of hormones.
I talk to you about all this so that you can go deeper if your whole endocrine system is working perfectly.
Me: taking special attention to every word you indicate; I realize that not everything in me is right. An example of this is cholesterol. I tend to have it high. At the top of what would be best for my body. It comes partly hereditary, but of course it is a personal issue, where nervousness plays a major role in me. The pressure, the stress, the obligation to do the right things, as I plan them, are a fundamental factor in this point. I try to work on it, with daily exercise, eating well, meditating, but I have my ups and downs with this issue.
AM: you try to make it conscious. You know when you are in your good and low stages, and you focus on stopping the ball and taking your time to regain your balance.
Me: I take it as it’s the way I can maintain that balance needed to be able to manage the values of it. I have a positive side that the cholesterol that they call it good is very high, and that offsets the total value of it. But that doesn’t mean that I have to put special emphasis on being aware of the values.
AM: there is always something to keep in mind. Emotionally, you know what it means and therefore you try to work on it. And we will do the same every day this week.
I invite everyone to watch Matias’ video with the theme of the day.
Finally, I encourage everyone to engage in conversation with their own I Am, to listen to what we each have to say to each other. No one else but us can re-signify our own being
