Peptides Feeding Synaptic Connections.
Allow Me To Introduce
Many many years ago, around 28 (gulp!), to be more precise, I sat through a replay of the original rock musical horror comedy Little Shop of Horrors (though I think the newer version below, featuring ever-likeable Rick Moranis, is far more palateable … and, let’s face it .. who doesn’t love a good singalong?!).
Understanding and connecting the role which peptides play, in terms of feeding our synaptic connections, gave me cause to pause .. and reflect. It became abundantly obvious Audrey manipulated Seymour – much in the same way as our peptides seek to fulfill that felt requirement for known expression ie grief, fear, happiness, joy, indulgence WOW!
I’m not suggesting, for one moment, that Audrey is good or bad BUT understanding that our peptides are linked directly to fulfilling a known, recognised or felt feeling or emotion, from within our past, is certainly empowering.
Remembering back to the birth of my third child, my son – Eli, and the pain relief drugs prescribed post-caesarean treatment (no judgment please : it was a necessary evil given the closeness in time between the birth of my second child, my son Isaac – who was a forced caesarean) I have experienced a not dissimilar third-partylike awareness of myself. Becoming cognisant and identifying reactions, experiences, emotions … all peptide fuelled … has been amazing!
Understanding the roles which each specific peptide functions in order to fulfill its obligation for felt need has helped me recognise and relate many behaviours of loved ones..and, more importantly, myself. I now get why some people are always achey or seeking reassurance by way of a negative expression … its not actually them fulfilling that requirement .. its their peptides feeding the subby of a time when they felt safe or accepted.
Holy Moly!! So, more determined than ever, I set my subby – heretofore known as Audrey – on solid notice that, unlike poor darling Seymour, I WILL master the craft of managing my subconscious and, in the sage words of Og Mandino, ‘I will form good habits and become their slave’.
Forward Launch. And All That Good Stuff!
