“Bioplasticity got you into this mess and Bioplasticity can get you out of this again!”
Professor Lorimer Moseley
This saying means there is both a positive and negative side to bioplasticity. Bioplastics are everywhere, and it is all about how we adapt to all our bodily changes and life situations. Our brain, our body, and its many systems are adaptable and bioplastic. Our following Meditation retreat on Friday the 24th of September is wholly focused on this fascinating topic.
The negative and darker side of bioplasticity is when your bodily systems get better and better at seemingly ‘looking after you’.
Nerves begin to convey dangerous messages, and you become more and more sensitive, brain cells making pain are more hyper-alert, and the coping systems such as the emotional, cognitive, endocrine and autonomic systems are worn out after being switched on for extended periods.
However, our ability to positively adapt is genuinely awe-inspiring.
The positive and lighter side of bioplasticity is that essentially every system in the human body will adapt itself to respond to its demands, and this is very hopeful, particularly for those experiencing pain or ill health, no matter what the condition or duration.
What is the best place to start to create bioplastic change for ourselves?
- We need to firstly understand the bioplastic potential of all bodily systems. This is the most essential step!
- Then, we must learn how to turn down protective systems, even switch them off by thinking, moving, speaking, knowing and behaving differently.
- Finally, we must commit to change and know that it takes about a year of continued brain training and adaptive bodily practice to see significant pain reduction and stunning health outcomes.
All the while recognising that bioplastic change begins now, in this very moment.
Please join Celia Roberts on the 24th of September for Meditations for Bioplasticity to understand, implement and create the change you need in your body and brain.
