The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion

A lot of us live by the notion "I think therefore I am". However, when you look closely at emotions, the thought-reaction sequence doesn't necessarily explain everything. When you really look at it, our emotions play a huge role in our lives, probably more than we even recognize. That's incredibly ironic being as we as a society tend to encourage hiding or masking our emotions.

The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion begins by looking at our assumptions and misassumptions about emotions. In particular, I was intrigued by the dialogue about sensitivities. Simply put, not everyone experiences light, colour, sound, etc in the exact same way. We tend to assume this is so but our personal experiences are actually quite unique. Some people are more or less sensitive to certain stimuli or may actually find that the sense experiences get a bit muddled.

The question then becomes "why?" Why do some people experience extrasensory perception and others do not? Why are those who suffer from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome more sensitive to pain, light, electricity, etc than the average person? Is there reason or a link? It would seem that the answer may have to do with trauma and stress, especially that in early childhood. To me, that's very interesting and well worth more examination.
