"using the body to redirect mind and emotion"

"“Her emotional system intimately knew the saddle as a place where she was in control, was safe, and where the world was predictable. “I felt like I was on top of the world,” she said. “That did more for me emotionally than anything at that time. I felt like everything was going to be all right.” This is another instance of using the body to redirect mind and emotion. She put her body where it had learned to feel good and it obediently felt good.
In Agid’s patient, the physical movements and posture of sadness (i.e., the emotion) led to the feeling of sadness, which the baloney generator immediately began to try to explain. (“Everything is useless.”) But now we see that the system can work either way, thoughts leading to emotions or the physical actions of emotions leading to matching thoughts and feelings."
Isto funciona nos dois sentidos. Se só ouvirem estórias sobre desgraças sentir-se-ão e actuarão como desgraçados.
Não vale contar estórias da carochinha cor de rosa, o nosso cérebro de rato, vai topar a fantochada e o tiro sai pela culatra.
